For the last couple of thousand k's I have been using Shimano A520 SPD pedals and Specialized trail shoes with an SPD clip, on my Cube road bike. Actually got really used to them but thought I would bite the bullet and buy some road shoes.
My first venture into road specific shoes is by means of Shimano R087 shoes and R540 pedals with SPD SL road cleats.
Been out tonight for the first time with this combination and frankly it's a bit odd. The connection of the cleat to the shoe is nice and tight but there seems to be a lot of lateral 'skid' across the pedal surface with the cleat engaged. Basically my foot seems to move about a lot across the pedal.
Is it normal to have such movement because my old SPD and A520 pedals was pretty much rock solid.
