    Your Favorite (clipless) Shoes

    I need some cycling shoes.
    What's your favorite kind of cycling shoe? And why?
    btw, I'm looking for a pair which I could walk as well as ride in.

    I am going to run against the grain here and recommend something other than Sidi. I like Specialized shoes. They are very comfortable, durable and they are available at a much lower price. Sidis are indeed extraordinary shoes, but they are expensive and they do run small. I have fairly wide feet, and even with the "mega" size, they have always been too snug for my taste.

    Sidis are the best. Lake are great for those on a budget.

    i've been using some specialized taho shoes for a couple months and i dig 'em. they fit my feet well and i have no trouble walking around in them with crank brothers cleats installed (minimal clickety-clack).

    i would like to try some sidis at some point but i'm not sure if i really need a stiffer shoe or not.

    Shimano R-085's... had them for a few months... great for $100. only complaint is that they arent too great for winter riding; though nothing that an extra pair of socks hasnt been able to fix.

    Anyone here ever wear an SPD sandal for fixed gear use? I'm wondering how well they'd hold up to skipping/skidding.

    Sidis are good when you're on the bike, but they're so stiff that walking on them is uncomfortable. I have Sidi Genius 5.5, Lake MX101, Shimano R-085, and Lake LX60 shoes. Of all of these, the Lake MX-101 seem to offer the best combination of stiffness and walkability.

    I have a pair of AXO Stingers that have served me well fo the last 4.5 years, I wear them around at the office and they are very comfortable. I am going to be very sad the day I have to replace them. I also have a pair of the specialized Taho's but am not terribly thrilled with the fit. really a narrow shoe and somehow the padding in the tongue became bunched up in the end, and prevents me fom tying the shoe properly.

    Another vote for Dominators because they're super stiff and really comfortable both on and off the bike. unlike matthew_deaner, the stiffness of the sole doesn't bother me when walking around.

    The only thing I don't like about them is that the hard cleats slip easily on hard flooring when wet. I've almost hurt myself a few times when walking inside onto a tile or linoleum floor after walking through snow or rain. It's nothing that you can't deal with, though; you just have to pay attention and think ahead when going indoors.
