Speedplay's Walkable Cleat Protector Shim Kit is essentially a washer for your Walkable Cleats. It sits between the cleats and carbon racing soles to minimize the damage to the carbon's finish and keep the cleat stationary while you tighten the bolts. Each kit includes two shims that are only compatible with Speedplay's Walkable Cleats. Please note that neither the mounting hardware nor the cleats themselves are included.

Should have been included with cleats
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These thin metal pieces need to be installed between Speedplay cleats and carbon shoe soles to prevent the pedals from chewing up the shoe. Meager as they are I think they should come with the cleats. Or better yet, the cleats should be redesigned not to need them. My shoes have markings on the sole to help position the cleats which are hidden by these plates. That said, they seem to work as intended. An enterprising person could probably make their own by cutting up an empty beer can
