Some folks legs splay out to the side naturally, for them I would imagine that their cleat placement just needs to take that into consideration during the initial setup.

Some folks whose hose legs splay out to the sides I think could reduce this phenomena through yoga. I get super tight in my hips and have found that when I do this one yoga stretch where you extend your outstretched leg over you other other (straight) leg using a yoga strap and breathing into it allowing for the inevitable release - I found his to be quite enlightening to make my legs feel more balanced and symmetrical. The crossed over leg can also be extended outward on the same side (no longer crossing over) and also let out gradually with a yoga strap which releases tightness in the inner hip (groin) - these 2 exercises have decreased hip pain for me quite a bit.
