Right, after doing some longer rides than my little 6m e/w commute and a 52 mile ride from Brum to Shrewsbury, I think I need to get some shoes that actually fit properly (yes, it was a newbie online purchase..). Current shoes are Diadora Geko MTB shoes - easy to walk in and look nice but are a bit too small really. I'm tempted by road shoes because of the greater amount of float I presume is offered by time/look/spd-r compared to my spds; and it is something that I really noticed as a limitation with the spds as my commuter has traditional flats/toe-clips which allow a lot of movement! However, I'm really not comfortable with the prospect of not being able to walk in road shoes (I like to stretch the legs a bit and not have to hobble to the shop!), so this leads me to pose some questions to you guys: 1. Is there any difference between mtb/road shoes other than cleat compatibility and the ability to walk? 2. In terms of fitting size/shap2 - are there any brands which are better suited to those with moderately wide feet? 3. What is the difference between the different types of road pedals/cleats?! 4. Are the big chains like Evans the best bet for carrying a wide range of stock? I'll be in Bristol and probably London in the next few weeks so should be able to squeeze some bike shop visits in to sort me out.
