DIY Shoe Shields

The shoe shields protecting my Northwave Carbon shoes are almost worn out so figure it's time for some new ones. You know - shoe shields - protection plates that sit between the cleat and shoe to stop crank bros eggbeater pedals damaging the sole of your fancy carbon shoes.

Anyhow - I have some thin aluminum lying around and wondered how easy it might be to make some though.

A quick Google found someone else has had the same idea:

Hmmm.... well, at least this shows it's possible, but after reading this think the material I have is not really suitable. Still - nice idea and worth sharing I thought.
