Thanks, it was just as easy as you said. Knocking them out was a cinch - measured the diameter of the t-nut - just over 6mm so used a new 6mm drill bit and moved the holes down about 10mm - you probably don't want to go any less as you'd be quite near the old holes. The sole is quite thick so it takes a little time - the hardest thing was not going right through the other side of the shoe once you're through the sole. To prevent that I took my time and put a sponge in the shoe which caught the tip of the bit.
A few pictures of the process if anyone's interested. You can see that I didn't manage to get them perfectly below the other holes but obviously your cleats give some tolerance so it doesn't matter. I was going to fill the old holes but they are covered by the cleat so I haven't bothered. I have some black silicon if I need to. I put the shoes on a towel for padding and so they wouldn't slip.
I used tape so I could mark on it and to give a little grip to get the drill started. Here I've already knocked out the top t-nut.
All 3 holes drilled and top t-nut now in the lower hole.
And the finished item - comparing it to the other shoe.
(and yes, my cleats are getting a bit beat up - new bike and pedals soon so I'll be changing them!)
I'm left handed, if that matters.
