SPD-SL cleats with their sacrificial, walkable, rubber, bumpers have alleviated any need for them.

With my Shimano cleats I don't but with the Keo cleats I do always. They add more grip and help to protect the from wear and tear.
do the keo cleat covers offer a lot more grip than walking on the bare cleats?

I have maybe 10 steps in my garage without a rug/carpet. Other than that, I don't walk in my shoes. Plus I wear Shimano cleats, so again, no.

I considered SpeedPlays until I heard about the cost of replacement cleats and the need to own cleat covers. That turned me off them completely.

i know i didn't specify in the OP, but i'm mainly concerned with LOOK Keo cleats on my Shimano carbon sole R132 shoes.

Hows the durability of Keo cleats and the ability to walk on concrete/tiles with them?

I bought cleat covers for my Keos and then my Speedplays... after a few rides it seems like wasted pocket space and they sit in accessory storage with things like tire levers. If I ever decide I need covers bad enough to waste half a pocket, I'll just switch to mtb shoes.

looks like "No, Never" is winning by a lot. How much walking do you guys think my Look Keo cleats take before needing replacing? Think i can get a good 5 miles of walking out of them? (of course not at once)
