Bike shoes?

Hey everyone, I was wondering if mountain bike shoes can also be used for a cycle class. My wife has a mountain bike but has no desire to get a road bike, but wants to get shoes that. Is there a good way of solving this without having to buy two pairs of shoes? If so, what is a good entry pair without breaking the bank?

As long as the pedals are compatible with her cleats it will work just fine for clipless. If not, casual SPD shoes with recessed cleat will work just fine with toeclips or platforms. A good friend of mine uses Keen SPD sandals on her own spincycle and Time clipless on her bike. She won't choose one over the other because they both work just fine as they are.

Thank you Stealthhammer, my Uncle told me about SPDs as well. I will look into those.
