Subject: [CR]Shoes for a classic ride

OK, it may seem like a mundane question. My Avocet touring shoes are almost as old as my bike. I think this will be the last season for them. I've been to some of the better shops locally and they all quickly dismiss the idea of riding with toe clips and straps and instead try to push me into clip-less. I'm really just looking for a decent touring shoe that fits nicely within my Campy pedals and Brooks clips (I don't use cleats). New shoes seem to have wide and thick rubber soles that either rub the crank arm or get hung up on the quill. My feet are D-width.

Surely you're not all riding with 30 year old shoes. So have you all gone OT with SPD pedals? Or is there a shoe out there that works with the good stuff?
