    What are your needs in a shoe? What's your budget? I like the Lake shoes for the vibram sole for off-bike hikes. I loved the Sidis for general fit, hard to beat the Italians on shoe fit, just not so much on wear issues on the sole.

    I'm really happy with these:

    I like the three velcro strap. They're nice and light weight, and the mid top provides some extra ankle protection.

    I would be interested in suggestions too. My bike has regular pedals with the front-mounted straps. Should I go for an mtb shoe? I was told I could use a regular shot with an as-flat-as-possible sole so that I could quickly take the foot in and out of the strap.

    ZGOZZ if you can go see J down at Halters and try out the SH-M182 I got a pair of these and love them! Super comfortable I've ridden in them for 4+ hours without discomfort. He carries a few other brands as well and can help you find a comfortable shoe for you.

    Well, when I got my first pair I got the cheapest I could find, some Shimano lace up with one velcro strap. 4.5 years later they're still going strong (although I did have to glue the soles back on once) are comfortable, easy to walk in and have more than paid for themselves. if it were me I'd check out the Shimano shoes under $150 that are more geared towards "amatures" with soles that you can actually walk/hike in.

    I too have SIDI Dom 5's and they are the most comfortable shoe, straight from the get go, but as BFFL said, the soles leave a lot to be desired as far as being able to walk/hike in them and they wear very fast.
