Yes, keep your work shoes at work.

But if you want all day comfort in a cycling shoe, the Pearl Izumi X-Alp Seek line is pretty good.

I love Keens in general, but when I bought the Commuter I was disappointed. Too skinny, though I understand why they did it. I am hearing good things about the Arroyo Pedal. Saving my pennies for that one, and the Austin Pedal when the weather gets cold.

Funny thing is my commute is 4.5 miles each way, relatively flat and using running shoes have been just fine.

I tried to find SPD shoes that I could wear all day at work. Good biking shoe and good walking shoe are mutually exclusive. I got a $20 pair of clearance sneakers that I keep at work (it's casual).

Comfier --- Less comfy (walking)
Six Six One Filter -- DZR -- Chrome Midway Pro

Better at pedaling -- Okay at pedaling
Chrome Midway Pro -- Six Six one -- DZR

DZR is more trendy, Chrome is more clean look, Six Six one is just casual and... kinda boring.
