I just switched from MTB shoes to road shoes... I bought the MTB shoes when i first started out b/c they were less expensive and my first pair. i never had any trouble clippin in those, but i finally got ready to get some real road shoes and just got back from my first ride. i LOVE them! they are so much cooler and lighter and more comfortable for road riding, however...my feet are sliding all over the pedal! i never before realized that i had accuracy problems with clipping in, i guess the grip on the bottom of the MTB shoes held me steady on the pedal until i made the clip.

besides just practice and getting good at hitting the right spot the first time, anyone got any helpful hints on how not to kill myself :eek: whilst trying to clip in?

thanks for all the help!!

So are things ok once you clip in? Because that means just practice clipping in more. If you're sliding around while biking, get a cleat with less float- I had Looks with red cleats and it was just too much float for me. I went to the grey cleats (along with buying Look Keo pedals) and I like it a lot more.
