|Light, but stiff MTB sheos work for me on both the CX and MTB. Ive found a good fit with the Sidi Dom 2.
brand really depends on individual fit more than anything else.

|I have a pair of northwave comp act's cyclocross specific, NW no longer has this model in their line up, they have been replaced with a winter 'Grizzly' model, a boot version with a high cut water tight membrane. Sidi makes a similar model, both are boot cut and have extra insulation. |
Both receive great praise and all models. Hence made in Italy. My northwaves have lasted hard riding, commuting and some messengering. (The heel started to lift off and I glued it back, not a problem).
As far a a good deal you have to look around, I picked up my NW's from Nashbar on sale two years ago for under $100 and a second pair of NW team mtb used from MTBreview.com, great deal!
Just some fair warning: Try on the shoes at a shop first! A fit that allows for some foot sweeling is perfect. And finaly
all the companies have some odd non-conruent sizing systems.
I wear a 43.5 in Northwaves and a 44.5 or 44 Wide in Sidi's.

|Nashbar has the Northwave Grizzly on sale at a very attractive price ($80 something, I believe), but alas not in my size -- I think they've got them in sizes below 41 and above 45... |
