Sadly the stitching on my new SPD shoes I bought from Decathlon - click HERE for my review - started to come away after only a few rides. Not overly impressed to be honest but getting a refund from Decathlon was a pain free process.
I now search for a new pair but having looked at the slightly updated version of the Specialized SPD shoes I currently have, I can see that they have made the velcro straps much shorter and therefore almost certainly solving the problem I had with them being too long.
The Decathlon shoes at £45 are fairly cheap for this kind of thing and perhaps I just got a bad pair. Have to say though I didn't like them enough to just get a replacement pair and I suspect I'll be wearing another pair of Specialized some time soon.
