I'm considering a couple of different road shoes and would like opinions. I'd be using the shoes with Look pp396 pedals. Thinking of either the Sidi dynamic shoe or the Pearl Izumi vortex shoe. Would like to keep the cost around $100. for the pair. Comfort and enough room are important along with ventilation. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I have used the Dynamics for two years now with PP396s w/o problems. My feet are narrower than most, about B width, and the shoes feel great on long rides.

Two completely different shoes... the Sidis are narrow, two-strap shoes with a nice sole. The Vortex is a lot wider, especially in the toe box area, and a pretty nice sole.

Depends more on the width of your foot and the amount of toe space you need.

Another nice shoe at the $100 price point is the Diadora Cosmos (three straps, nice sole, probably midway between the Sidi and Pearl Izumi in terms of width but more like the Sidi in toe box space).
