Yep, when I was racing I paid about $400 for high-end carbon fiber soled shoes with a semi-custom orthotic for the road. I wore off the shelf $250 shoes for mountain and cyclocross. When you regularly spend 4-5 hours training you need to make sure your bike and kit fit properly or you're going to suffer. Especially your knees. That's why when I started lifting seriously (for me) I bought the Oly shoes. I don't have any depth or ankle flexibility issues and at 47 I'm going to do every thing I can to keep it that way. In fact, tonight is OHP day on my Wendler 531 plan. I wear the Adidas for the OHP as well as the squat. I bench and deadlift in a very thin soled cheap shoe by a brand called "Superga". They have little to no padding and a very flat sole.

By the way, I should mention that I use special orthodics that are designed to help with my foot pain (plantar fasciitis). They support my arch and also increase the heal rise just slightly in any shoe I use. I even use them when I squat, but it's hardly a raised heal.
Awesome! Hope they work for you dude! LEt me know!

Ahhh my boss at work does the same with his cycling stuff, such an expensive sport. He's just bought himself a BMC, it's beautiful but damn it was expensive!

Sounds awesome man! I'm gonna buy myself some chucks I think, I've just been squatting in my running shoes as I find it comfortable, and I don't really have the extra money to spend! One day I will, and this thread has helped me a load with stuff so will see what I can get on offer maybe!
