Shoes and pedals have been acquired, I'm using 5.10 hellcats and 2009 crank brothers mallet 2 pedals. When the pedals arrive, we'll measure up and spec the magnets. The clippy spring will be removed from the pedal and replaced with a magnet either side.
A Gentleman in the mountains, no matter what his means of access, should be appropriately attired at all times, specifically in a manner which befits his modesty and public decency.

I finally mocked up a prototype. The magnet is a bit weak, but is working for what I want the pedal to do, which is to guide my foot into the right position, the pins and shoes give all the grip I need.




I've glued a steel plate into the sole of a skate shoe. The glue will take 24 hours to cure, so I mocked this up to test the magnets in the interim. Classy workmanship I think you'll agree.
