I have mid-priced tri-shoes and pretty decent road shoes. Both pairs are "plenty secure."
The tri-shoes sacrifice a bit of fit and comfort for: 1. easy, fast, hard-to-fumble in-and-out, and 2. wet-feet friendly.
They will work fine on the track, but if you think fit & comfort *could* be a factor, then you'll strongly prefer good road shoes.
The road shoes were bought because the tri shoes, which are fine on 25-milers, repeatedly become uncomfortable after 40 miles.
