I prefer to ride in touring shoes, though real cycle touring shoes are becoming rare. Many current shoes are too wide for clips and straps, as they are really intended for Shimano-style clipless pedals. I did just buy a pair of Diadora Voyagers, which have a good shape and a good sole for touring with clips amd straps. The only drawback is that one of the velco closures is near the toe, which makes it a litle harder to enter amd exit clips than with a lace-up shoe.

I ride with Diadora Lombardia's which are a good compromise in that they lace up and have one velcro closure and are almost all black. They also have a nice bolt on cleat. Of course out of production, but they turn up. Old fashioned shoes in 12/13 are few and far between............
No Looks, Time, (or shudder) SPD's here, so nothing to switch.
