Crosscheck and heelstrike

Need help. I am going to start commuting, and definitely want panniers for food and clothing, etc. I wear a 47-48 shoe/cleat and ride a 58. I am considering building up a Crosscheck with Rival. Are there certain brands of panniers on which I can ride a Crosscheck and still clear my heels? Otherwise I will get a LHT, but would prefer the Crosscheck as I plan to hammer on the way home several times a week and would like the snappier ride. FWIW besides racks, I will want front and rear full fenders.

Thanks for the advice. If you have any other frame/fork options I am all ears. My new job starts in about 3-4weeks.

Thanks again.
