    I recently got a pair of Shimano SM086L shoes. They were reasonably priced and seem nice enough. The only potential issues are that the toe box is pretty low and the shoes seem to run fairly narrow and either may cause fit issues. Other shoes I've used include various Shimano and Specialized, both of which were nice and lasted a long, long time. I recently had Adidas Marathon shoes which are more expensive than some of the others I've had and barely lasted two years-- the fiberglass sole cracked.

    Look for some shoes on closeout at a local shop. I wouldn't order online unless your positive that the shoe fits and is the right size.

    +1 on bike shoes running narrow.

    Some shoes are easier to walk in than others.

    I wear Sidis. I got them about ten years ago. The toebox of the Shimanos was a little too narrow. I think it's ironic that the Italian shoe was the roomier one.
