My wife decided she wanted to try clipless this summer. I had some extra pedals and cleats, but since she doesn't ride a ton I didn't want to spend a lot on shoes, especially if she didn't like the locked in feeling of clipless. Got these on sale, and couldn't be happier! Decent weight, good materials and finish. Had a little family outing where she had them on for a couple hours, both riding and walking around, and she had no issues with rubbing or hot spots.
