    Yes they are.

    I had a pair and the pair I got were great, and introduced me to the world of clipless pedalling.

    Just make sure that you open the box and check that the cleats are inside, they are not, or were not fixed to the shoes, but are in a little bag with them.

    People often open the boxes up and pinch them to have as spares 😯

    They should look like this.

    😉

    Doesn’t look like they come with cleats now.

    With pedal cleat attachment points

    Which for MTB type pedals is 2 bolt holes or 2 slots which you either screw into or you put the plate in the bottom of the shoe.

    We’ll see… I can still use them if they don’t have cleats with my standard pedals cant i? I basically wanna get me and the missus out of riding in our every day trainers anyway.

    You can always pick the cleats up from ebay at very reasonable prices, I’m certainly going to check them out as the last pair I had were ideal for commuting.

    Don’t forget, I’m pretty sure your pedals will come with cleats anyway. 😉

    Don’t forget that there are 2 sorts of cleats – ones with about 5% of float, others with no float at all.

    you’re gonna have to tell me what Float is… cos all that i know is a float is something you use when you can’t swim very well! hehe

    Thanks

    😀

    Float is the amount of rotational foot movement that it allows you before it releases the foot from the clip. The standard now seems to be the one with the 5-degrees (sorry, not 5% 😳 ) and I’d recommend this for beginners with SPDs – if you want, you can move up afterwards.

    IIRC (and someone please correct me if I’m wrong):-

    SPD with 5 deg. float – black metal cleat

    SPD with no float – silver/grey metal cleat

    LOOK with 5 deg float – red plastic cleat

    LOOK with no float – black plastic cleat

    Gunner, are the shoes on the right actually Shimano MT31’s? They look just like mine but with a strap on the top.
