I went in to REI today to find out my size. I'm looking for a comfortable Sport-style shoe that I can walk around in without damaging the cleats to go with my Shimano A530 clipless pedals. I know comfortable is subjective but I'm sure there are some makes that have evolved over time and improved along the way.
Yeah once you wear a cleat down beyond the allen bolts you're going to be drilling them out (or dremeling, or reverse bits). Getting a shoe that can come completely apart is worth the $240 price of the Doms, and the ratchet system is way better than velcro alone. You get such a tight fit with the SIDI ratchet.
edit: on the topic of long wearing, I wear my SIDIs all day at school (commuting for the next semester) and I don't get sore or pains. They clack a bit on granite and brick with eggbeater cleats but not on normal concrete. SIDI also makes "in between" sizes, I am a 44.5 (I think) and getting a good size is key to being able to wear them all day.
