Lace-up shoes?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Lace-up shoes?

Does anybodystill make lace-up road shoes? And, particularily, shoes which accept Look cleats? I really don't like the design of MTB shoes, and most of them don't ake Look cleats, anyway. I have a difficult foot to fit, and having laces is really the only way to have shoes which really fit me.

Have you tried Sidi or Carnac?
Some of their trad touring shoes take clipless cleats.

From what I can find, neither makes a lace-up model anymore. If they do, no American retailer sells them.

My Cannondale shoes are lace up and accept SPD cleats, can't say about Looks.

My Carnac road shoes lace up and take Look cleats. Most, if not all Carnacs may lace up. All take Look cleats. You can't see the laces in the mail order catalogs because in the ad photos the flap and velcro straps hide the laces.

An update on Carnac road shoes: Carnac's going modern too, but the current "Legend" model still has laces. The're expensive - about $200.00 now. I bought my Legends three years ago, and they're still going strong.

Don't know if there's something special for Look cleats, but, I just bought lace-up Nike Pedali's real cheap. They're comfortable and work well with my Shimano pedals.

What about Adidas? I know they used to for trackies, and they're compatible with clipless, too.

A lot of UK Audax cyclists wear the retro black leather lace-up shoes.
A UK co. called St John Stret Cycles sell them:
https://www.sjscycles.com
I'm sure they deliver to US

Price in UKP 49.99

Another vote for the Nike Pedali , they lace up with a velcro strap to cover the lace ends , for the money they are very comfortable
Got mine for 30 quid , knocked down from £49.
