Specialized BG S Works shoes with Speedplay Zeros?

Are there any problems with this combination? I read a customer review of Speedplay shoes on the Wiggle site who said that his BG shoe rocked from side to side and gave him knee problems. I'm not sure how that is possible. Any experience out there?

    speedplay zeros are perfectly fine on s-works shoes, both the current model and the previous one, i've used the combination for years and never had a problem

    sounds like they messed up the fitting

    Could it be referring to the fact that when Speedplays get quite worn, they will rock from side to side? Google it, it's a known issue.

    tbh i never had that problem either, even on my three-year old commuting ones which get a huge amount of cack on them and umpteen clips out/in at the lights

    perhaps it's related to amount of float used, i can imagine riders with a lot of float who rotate their feet might have a grinding action on the pedal body, i've got mine set for fairly narrow float

    I have a simple rockingness from my speedplay actually. Probably done 13,000km on them I think.
