    They work good. You can bend your toes and they bend with them..
    You can feel the pedal..

    If I'm going any distance, I like to use a stiff-soled bike shoe. Since it's still chilly around here, I'm using my fleece-lined winter shoes:

    Sidi Dominators, I'm on my 4th pair of Sidi's in 30 years.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    Specialized something-or-other road bike shoes.
    Prior to using cycling shoes, I had some shoes from REI that had fairly stiff soles and worked better than sneakers.

    It depends on what I am riding.

    I usually live in Merrell barefoot shoes and these work with flat pedals while I also have most of my day to day rides equipped with 50/50 flat / spd pedals and have several pairs of mtb / touring shoes to wear with them that are also comfortable off the bike and pass as running shoes.

    My mountain bike has eggbeaters and a pair of dedicated Adidas mtb shoes (stiffer) as does my road bike that uses Look pedals and cleats with another pair of Adidas racing shoes.

    For my road bike I have a pair of Chain and a vintage pair of aviva. I also like to ride my rat traps pedals with a pair of all leather nikes.
    For the love of the bikes

    Lake Mountain Bike Shoes.

    Shoes that don't bend ... they've got stiff soles so that my feet don't hurt while riding.

    I have a pair of Lake Trekking shoes (they came in the wide width I need) with cleats for my Crank Bros Candy pedals. I use them after I have enough miles to feel stable clipping in.

    Since I haven't ridden significant mileage for a few years, I am currently wearing my Columbia hiking boots on cool days, and Reebok walking shoes otherwise. These are the shoes I wear all day, so basically if I don't clip in, I ride with whatever I am wearing that day.

    For my two fastest road/race bikes: 80's Diadora leather velcro-closure shoes, comfortable but stiff with SPD-SL; neoprene booties for winter

    For touring/utility/fixed/mountain: Shimano lace up MTB shoes with SPD; neoprene booties for winter

    For fixed/utility/touring/mountain: Lake sandals with SPD, the closed toe cap ones. They're pretty comfortable and fit the foot surprisingly well.

    I only ride clipless. If I'm riding to a "walking around" destination, then I throw appropriate shoes into my pannier, trunk bag, or backpack.

    I have Keen Austin and Keen Commuter II shoes for riding clipped in.

    For platform pedals, my favorite is my Teva Roller Mesh shoes
