Nice bike with reasonably good components at a great price compared to its retail price (~$700US).

Different shoes brands are made on different "lasts" ... so, you need to decide which brand fits your feet ...

The use of different "lasts" means that there isn't any continuity in the sizes ... so a 44 SHIMANO is about the same as a 45 SIDI (just to name to brands). You should go to a bike shop to find a shoe that fits you ... the best fitting shoe may not be carried by your bike shops, BTW.

The prices on shoes varies widely ... I think most shops carry Shimano's shoes ... Shimano seems to have the most varieties of shoes through the broadest range of prices.

Shimano also has one of the broadest variety of pedals ... again, in a broad price range. Their SPD cleats are ubiquitous. You could do worse.
