I had some spare time today so I decided to make my old specialized road shoes lighter and more comfortable with laces :D
Saved me 62 grams so I can take two more energy gels to my rides :lol:

Been using pair of Bont tri shoes for the last 3yrs. You're supposed to put eyelets, so that your shoes will last longer (stop laces cutting through the fabric/leather) and the laces freer to move. But I didn't, and the shoes have lasted (I won't say well, because one hole got cut through. But I just punched another next to it).
I also removed the rubber edge bumpers etc.

Might try this with my old DMTs. (Strap split after only a few weeks of use)

How is the unpadded tongue?
