Cyclocross Shoes

Could anyone recommend a mid grade type of cyclocross shoe. I tend to have a slightly wider foot. The shoes will be used for racing. I will be using egg beater style pedals. Any manf. info will be helpful. Thanks

I have a pair of Specialized BG Comps that I like a lot for cross. It's helpful to avoid a carbon sole; a little bit of flex really helps when you're running. The Specialized also accept toe spikes, if you race the type of courses where you'd need them.

SiDi's Mega is their wide last , get one of their MTB shoes, the all Lorica upper is a synthetic leather ,
so wet and dry conditions are covered. won't harden like Burger byproduct cow's leather,
after getting soaked.

Lake sells some shoes in a wide version. I've got a pair that are fine, if a bit heavy. They've got another model that's lighter that I would get now if I were doing it again.

I've had good luck with Northwave mtb shoes. I have an E width foot, and like them a hair better than the Sidi Megas (which I use for road shoes). I also use eggbeater pedals.
