I don't need anything expensive but something decent (under 100) , I use SPD pedals. currently use shoes with laces but that's a pain. Suggestions.....

Funny you should ask, I looked up BMX shoes on Google last week and found many, they were all rated for BMXracing and Mountain biking. Answer and Shimano have nice offerings.

Shimano is good for the $100-ish shoes.

That said, my last pair of Sidis lasted 10 years before I lost them. I'm sure they'd still be going strong today.

Finndog, You missed a killer deal on steep and cheap. Northwaves about $75. I have 4 pairs, Shimano, Northwave (winter specific), Nike (bolted the sole back down) and Specialized (after 2 other pairs were returned with delaminated soles, one of the straps is split on this pair). Can't tell you the model of them. I'm bad about this. I'll post a couple that I think I like. Oh by the way I don't like buckles as they can pop open. I prefer 3 straps.
I believe these are like my Shimano's just a newer version. These are the best shoes I've owned. I've had quite a few.
I believe these got good reviews.
has buckles...
Hope this helps.

Depending on how technical your riding is you have a basic decision to make about the type of shoe. If you're riding somewhat technical terrain where you will be out of your clips for hiking or for balance I'd recommend a softer soled shoe.

After a decade of multiple pairs of Sidi Dominators I have my first pair of softer soled shoes (Nike Kato IV) and couldn't be happier. And they only cost about $50!

great, thanks, i do want something that you can walk in. I was looking at that shimano 121 before, looks like a good shoe. Couloir, good advice and idea, I will check those katos out. Thanks

I don't know if they make any shoe that is great for walking, but:

X2 on the Sidis.

Like ski boots, whatever is the best fit. I liked some of Shimanos, but they were too narrow for my feet. Ended up with a pair of Specalized Tahoe (has laces and velcro strap) and I'm very happy with them.

There more money than what you have stated but SIDI Dominator shoes rock.Very comfortable and bomb proof. I had one pair for 5 years 3 rides a week in very mountainous, rocky, rooty, terrain. I bought another pair and have 7 years on those, so you have to take into consideration the length of time they will last in your purchasing decision.
