Not sure if you have ever had any foot problems, but the best pair I got for off road, which I use on the road as well, are made by Sette. They are heavier than most shoes but if you are going to use clips they would work good.
Pricepoint has a fair amount of shoes cheap. They have some that look like hiking shoes that you could use. These are the ones I have (not the pedals):
Even better, if you have REI nearby, check them out. Keen makes a pair that have an SPD spot on the bottom if you decide to go clipless. They are a little pricey but REI will take them back no questions.
I don't like the road shoes for riding on the road. Alot of them are very light so you can cut down on weight. Heck, I got plenty of weight to lose, so forget about lightweight shoes lol. The lighter shoes bother my feet so I just go with more rugged ones. I spend alot of money on my feet (physical therapy and orthotic) so I'm not going to chance it because of lightweight shoes!
The only way out is through...
