Look compatible recessed cleat shoes

I run eggbeaters with Answer mountain shoes on my commuter. Great for getting to work in mucky conditions, not so great for long distances or speed as they are a little squirmy. I run Look Keo pedals with Sidi genius shoes on my road bike. Great for centuries and racing around, but terrible for walking and they can get tight if my feet swell.

For me the best of both worlds would be to be able to use my look keo pedals with a mountain shoe. To this end I have been looking for a pair, and have only come across the Lake CX120 shoes. They are described as 'touring' shoes on one site and 'road' shoes on another. They have "Durable, non-skid rubber cleat saver outsole pads [that] provide tough protection". I can't find them anywhere locally to look at and try on, and I have no idea how effective this design would be as I have never come across it before. They are available here:

Does anyone know any other walkable shoes -- be they road, mountain, touring, spinning etc. -- that are compatible with 3 bolt look style cleats?

Any help is much appreciated.

I use the MX265. It is a lite-hiker with a cleat.

Where's the fun of using Look cleats, if you don't get to waddle around like a duck?
