Wide Bike Shoes: Part II

I asked for some help finding wide bike shoes a few weeks ago. I was looking for shoes that would work with toe clips, which, after several attempts at using clipless pedals landed me on my derriere, I use exclusively.

The good news is that, with your kind help, I did find a few brands offering wide sizes. The bad news is that they almost always are designed for use with cleats.

So...would there be any advantage to wearing clipless shoes without cleats over the old running shoes that I presently use? I've read that proper bike shoes have more rigid soles which would help with energy transfer, but would such shoes be really that much of an improvement over what I am using now?

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.
