    Since you are just starting out, do you plan to use a clipless pedal (clips the shoe to the pedal..."clipless" is a misnomer)? There are a variety of options for clipless pedals, and a variety of options for non-clipless pedals. Some cheap, some not. Post more info and we'll be glad to help.

    I would start at your local bike shop (LBS) and see what they have. If you haven't worn bike shoes before, I would go to a shop and see what size you wear. I just got a pair of Specialized Comp MTB shoes (about $120, but I got them on sale for $60) at my local shop. They are my first pair. The most important thing is to make sure you get the right fit and that's hard to do online. I wear a couple sizes larger in cycling shoes than regular shoes. I wouldn't buy my first pair of bike shoes online unless you are absolutely sure about the size and fit.

    Shimanos Are Very Good

    I've tried the basic ones with laces and the ones with velcro straps. Both are very, very good, and have never left me wanting more. Both retail for about $65.00 and $85.00, respectively. The key is: try them on and make sure they actually fit. Slightly too big is probably a little better than slightly too small.

    I tried several different brands and I can tell you that they all fit differently. I settled on a pair of Northwave shoes. Very comfortable at $80 on sale. Visit your LBS and try out several pairs and brands.

    I'd like to make another recommendation for the Specialized Comp, they are a great pair of shoes. Review here. Of course you need to try on the shoes yourself and make sure they fit well before making a decision.

    I got a pair of northwave lizzard shoes for pretty cheap. They are good shoes and reasonably priced. I think they are just over $100. http://www.northwave.com/usa/shoes_d...atid=2&area=2#
