Sunny warm greetings, y'all:

Quick question, slightly on-topic.

Is it possible to rig up a pair of new SIDI Genius 4 shoes to take regular cleats for use on Campy NR road pedals? Has anyone been successful in wearing a modern road shoe on an old pedal, with toe clips and Binda straps?

I may be approaching sacrilege by attempting this, but the shoes fit great and look HOT and are just about the only modern road shoe that isn't Glo-Winkie yellow and bright blue!! And the price was right.

Any info would be appreciated.
