Great price for a pair of genuine carbon fibre-soled shoes with wire closure. At time of writing, all sizes in both colours (black and white) still available.

Original price £160. Free delivery on all orders over £50 at Planet X.

You're normally looking at a retail price of well over £100 to get carbon soles and wire closures.

Lots of shoes have weasel words like 'carbon composite' or 'carbon technology' inferring that they have actual carbon fibre soles but are just plastic with some carbon fibres in the mix (if that). These are the real deal and look pretty trick too. Good reviews as well.

There is also a slightly different fluoro version at the same price.

Always fancied a boa system but don't want to part with my Bont shoes, comfiest road shoes I have ever ridden.

Excuse my ignorance but what kind of mounting would they fit and if I needed shoes i could walk into shops etc on should i be heading the SPD route ?

These shoes fit a road cleat like this and therefore pedals such as these.
These aren't designed to be walked around in. I'd suggest you look for mountain bike shoes if you want something more comfortable to walk around in, maybe these but check as they likely use these cleats which you'll need these pedals for.

Planet X have some great guides that are worth a read to learn more about pedals and shoes. I'd recommend starting with:
Pedals Explained
The Essential Guide to Commuting

MTB cleats (come with the pedals) will always use 2 bolts, wether they be Shimano/Crank Bros/Planet-X/etc

Road cleats (come with pedals) can either be 3 or 4 bolt, 3 bolt are all manufacturers apart from Speedplay who use 4 due to the construction of their cleat, you will get a 3 to 4 bolt adapter with new speedplay pedals though.

as Irishman said, walking in road shoes is a no go, the cleat is exposed, walking on it a) causes unnecessary damage to the cleat/shoe and b) is somewhat dangerous.

If you want to ride and then walk to the shops, then SPD is your route, not SPD-SL. Shimano do make some pedals that are one sided SPD and the other side platform so you needn't always wear SPDs, but if you do want pure SPD and are new to them can I please suggest you look no further than Crank Brother Eggbeaters, super easy to get your shoe in, 4 sided entry, super light (lightest MTB pedal made, often lighter than road pedals) and fully user rebuildable

Be aware that these shoes size up on the small side. I'd recommend going at least one size up. I have size 42 Shimano shoes, and the same size in these are visibly smaller. To be fair to Planet X they even recommend going up a size in the product description.

Thanks for the advise I'll head SPD as I'm not a full on road cyclist, have some SPD pedals somewhere but no matching shoes !

I was in the same situation and went for a pair of touring shoes, quite good if you want shoes with more of a road look that use spd, I got the Shimano RT33's but there is a few others.

​These shoes won't fit plain SPD, they're only 3 bolt, not 2 bolt.

I know you'd think that 2 bolt can fit in the 3 bolts, but the holes are different widths, so no go.
