I am thinking of purchasing a pair of Shimano touring shoes (recessed cleat mounting). I use
speedplay frogs. Will these cleats fit on the Shimano shoes? I have this feeling that the shoes are
made so that only shimano cleats fit. B

Go to the shoe guide on the SpeedPlay website:

You can also take your shoes to an LBS and see if the shoes will accept the Frog cleats.

I own a pair of Shimano T-090 shoes and use Frog cleats. I increased the width of the recess on each
side by about 1/16 inch to accomodate the Frog cleats and they work just fine. --Garrett

Yes, same holes as SPD-MTB cleats-

Not since first gen SPD-R-now that was good idea...

I have sidi dominators and the cleats wouldn't fit but since I bought them at the LBS (the pedals)
they "custom" fit the cleat for me. What he did looks easy enough especially if you have a dremel.

I had to trim away a little bit of the rubber surrounding the screw slots to get Frog cleats to fit
onto a pair of Shimano MTB shoes.

In my Speedplay X3 packaging there is an insert which says which shoes are compatible and not
compatible. Stan "Belij3" <[email protected]> wrote in message

I use Frogs on my touring shoes. I used a Dremel tool to trim away a bit around the cleat opening
and all works well.
