Personally, I went for standard 2 sided SPD's and a mtb shoe with fairly stiff sole, but rubber walking surface.
My goal (not sure if i achieved it) was to maximize riding efficiency (lighter weight, fairly stiff, clipless efficiency, prevent hotspot), while still having a shoe that wasn't a burden to walk around in. I had a lot of ground to cover each day, but still wanted to be able to run into the store or restaurant, and/or site see just a bit without clunking around in road shoes.
the shoes i have are similar to https://www.specialized.com/us/en/co...00#result-list
I'd also found that I struggle to quickly get into single sided clipless pedals in sticky situations, and i didn't want the weight (maybe silly) of platforms on the back side of spd.

I'm happy with my choice.
I also was carrying sandals for extended time off the bike.
