    Comfortable Shoes

    I'm currently using a pair of adidas clipless shoes right now that are killing my feet. Does anyone know of a good pair of shoes that look like "normal" street shoes and can be used to comfortably walk in?

    Thanks!

    These are what I wear commuting or just messing around with the kids.

    I like the Specialized Tahoe shoes... the BG thing works for me, I have Specialized road as well. I recently noticed a crack in the sole perpendicular the cleat so I'll be getting another pair of the sport road.

    They are more flexable than road shoes and slightly more flexable than MTB shoes. But, way stiffer than say, running shoes. They are bike specific so you would want them stiffer than street shoes.

    I wear these or a similar Shimano shoe and find them pretty good for biking and OK for walking.

    I've had two pair, and I'd have to say that they are quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I own.

    Personally I like canvas sneakers for riding, although I understand that you should have a stiff sole.

    I'm in the celtic folk fusion band Baroque and Hungry. "Mended", our new full-length studio album, is now available for download.

    I think i'll buy those thank you One question however, for sports such as tennis and soccer i usually buy a shoe a bit larger in size than my walking shoes, should i do this for cycling as well?
