Anyone have suggestions for shoes for clips and straps? I found a few posts on this, but they are getting to be outdated, and some of the shoes suggested are no longer available. I wear big shoes, so some of the high end retro looking shoes don't come in my size 14, or size 49 European.
I'm riding a Raleigh Clubman, more recreationally, but thought the touring crowd would be the most likely to have suggestions. I'm a landscape painter, and have started strapping art equipment to my rear rack and biking into the countryside to paint.

This past weekend on the Natchez Trace in Mississippi:

I ordered a pair of indoor soccer shoes, Adidas Samba, but the soles are quite thin and more flexible than I expected.
I'm looking for lace up shoes that won't have anything to get hung up in the straps, with a little bit of traction on the sole, some degree of rigidity, but still the possibility of walking in them. Any ideas?
