Looking for a bike shoe which is durable rather than sleek or pretty. I prefer something not too clickety-clacky as I do't want to sound like Fred Astaire when I go into a pub to er fill my water bottle. Any recommendations?

One that fits. Some shoes have the cleats more recessed for less click clack. Eg Mr W's shoes, which have lasted really well: Specialised RBX Road (go up 1 EU size).

Road cleats or MTB cleats? Or just 'fashion' stiff soled cycling shoes?

But really, anything from the big manufacturers: Shimano, Specialized, Giro, Northwave or Sidi will do the job. Pick something that's comfy but reasonably rigid and which you can bear to wear in public.

The lace up Shimano touring shoe is an excellent thing, assuming they still do it.

Yes, they do

wiggle.co.uk

Picture doesn't show it (which in itself is good) but in bad light the reflective stuff on the shoes is super-efficient. Walking a few miles in them is no problem at all. Really good bit of kit.

I bought a pair of the DHB wiggle own brand spd shoes last year. They're pretty good.
