    Just one - 5.10 cyclones.

    I can also use (have used) my Vans switchback (snowskate shoes) or Converse - not ideal as sole is soft but the Straitline pins grip them well. They aren't MTB shoes, though

    Lake cycle Sandals. I love these things. Clip in to my EB pedals and provide good stiff support. My local trail has about 5 water crossings, and sandals are perfect for this. The water cools you off, but your feet dry quickly with the constant spinning. No trench foot. Rock these from April through October.





    Shimano MW81 gore-tex all-weather shoe. Again - dry feet, great support. Rock these when the temps get chilly. Nothing worse than wet COLD feet.
    .




    Shimano MT52 3/4 top shoe. Use these when I know I will not be encountering any water and it's too chilly for the sandals and too warm for the gore-tex.






    Giro Privateer racing shoe. For XC racing. Light, stiff efficient.

    5 pairs of Lake cycling sandals (3 new in box) because they are awesome for commuting and discontinued I commute to work 3-4 days/week.

    2 pairs of Sidi Dominator 5's (one new in box)

    1 pair Lake MX-140's for wet weather and trails with a lot of/deep stream crossings

    1 pair Lake MXZ-302's for cold weather

    I purchased just about all of them off eBay for awesome prices. Some of the Lake's I got for $20 + $8 shipping!

    1 pair Exustar Carbon MTB shoes - these were a great deal from Nashbar at $89 for carbon-soled shoes with a ratchet buckle and removable cleats. I wouldn't say they're worth the claimed retail price of $299, but are a screaming deal for 90.

    1 pair Chrome Kursk for platforms - nice stiff sole, grippy on pedals, but also good for casual, non-bike wear. My other half hates how they look though. "Skater shoes".

    1 pair Louis Garneau Ergo-Air road shoes

    Nope.

    Was just able to order 3 pair of the size 43-44. Should last me at least through 2017!

    I get the weirdest looks/comments when people see me in sandals on the trail. They don't get it. I actually wore them in a recent XC race. Never had a foot/toe injury with them, not even a scrape (knock on wood).

    Good score...

    I wear them at work on many of the days I commute in and generally the SPD cleats do not present a problem when I'm walking around.

    Occasionally someone will give me the weird looks/comments on the trail but mostly, people say those are COOL. The funniest comment I received so far was from a non cyclist, she was totally impressed that I had bottle openers on the bottom of my shoes

    Shimano mp66 dx shoes - My main pair, the best shoes Ive used so far.
    Shimano AM45 - backup pair for above, basically the same shoe
    Specialized BG (sport?) - For xc/ road bike days
    5.10 freeriders - for when I try flat pedals, not very often
    661 filters - havent tried these yet, probably won't until one of my shimanos wears out.

    Giro Gauge (carbon soles)- best design for MTB shoe ever. Abrasion pads in the right spots for the rocks, and a high-mounted, low profile buckle that has a moulded guard tab. Perfection.

    Diadora Ergo carbon (have road version too)- pretty good, but not nearly as good as the Giro.

    A few pairs of "beater" shoes, from years past. Old Diadoras for slop rides. Shimano shoes are good commuters. Really should have more than one pair if you ride enough. Who wants to put on yesterday's soggy shoes in the morning?
    Go out and ride your bike

    A few I guess

    Keen sandals (summer commuting)

    Northwave Celcius (winter commuting and MTBing)

    Northwave Raptors (my go to pair for the last four years - on their last legs)

    Northwave Strikers (on sale at backcountry)

    I commute twenty miles a day on my road bike. All my bikes have CB pedals and depending on conditions I'll wear any of the above shoes. I've worn the raptors for 80 mile charity ride and they have been great. My shoes see a ton of miles.

    Currently 3 pairs:

    Specialized Sport MTB back when I started out and believed that clipless was the way to go.
    5.10 Impact 2 Low when I discovered that riding with flat pedals was much more to my liking.
    Specialized Tahoe because the Impacts are huge and clunky.

    One pair, Bontrager Race. They smell awful by now and never fit me verywell so I'm thinking about getting a pair of Shimano clipless shoes, probably M088 or XC50N.

    3 pairs:
    Pearl Izumi X-Alp Enduro for everyday use
    Shimano SH-MW81 winter shoes for cold and wet (finally lost my patience with booties)
    beat up Cannondale C-sole shoes I got for $20 at REI 12 years ago that I still use for spin classes
    2009 Redline Conquest Pro, 2008 Trek Fuel Ex8
    2007 Kona Cinder Cone utility bike
    Yes I spent too much on bikes.

    One pair of 2012 Specialized Pro. Replaced my 6 year old pair of Specialized Pro (non carbon sole version).

    Before this I went through so many in a matter of months. Most were returned after the living room trial fit to my local Performance Bike.

    Exustar carbon from Nashbar for $79 shipped free. Cost me $6.50 return. The tread was slippery!
    2 pair of Lake carbon. Fit pretty good, but heavy.
    2 pair of Louis Garneau. One was good fit, but heavy and the other was lighter but bad fit even with the oven heat molding fit thing.
    Giro Privateer too narrow. Giro Privateer HV horrible tread durability and not carbon stiff.

    The new Speci Pro is stiff but comfortable and I got it new off ebay for $170.

    I'm sorry, I thought this was more of a confessional, Imelda Marcos type support thing...

    Well, (for now) I'll just say I'm mostly a Lake/Northwave/Shimano kinda guy.
