Yes, you're right derek! You read what I wrote entirely! Yet such genius from you now!
When I come to a long timed redlight intersection and unclip, I'll be sure to heed your advise and remove my shoes before they so much as touch the pavement. Also, when I walk across my lobby, or anywhere for that matter, I will be sure to take off my shoes.
I'll be sure to pull up to the coffee shop, remove my shoes entirely, and proceed the rest of the time with my friends all without our shoes. Hopefully the soigneurs are quick enough to bring my bike towards me - with my shoes no less - when I am ready to ride. Or else they're fired. Afterall, I've never - ever - seen a PRO Cyclist walk in their shoes even for a moment. They get carried from the bus wearing their socks on their feet directly to their bike where two soigneurs put their shoes on for them while they sit atop the bicycle. Who would expect a shoe to ever be walked in? Are they mad?!?!
... and when I wait for my mates at the top of a climb, they'll find me with my shoes off lounging on a Persian carpet, sipping tea and reading poetry from Omar Khayyam, I dare not ever put the soles of my shoes on any ground, ever, thanks to your sound advice.
