I ride platforms more than anything else. The number one consideration for me in a shoe is weight. I look for a lightweight shoe. The next most important criteria is that I like a sole that's fairly stiff. It doesn't need to be bike shoe stiff, but on the stiffer end of an athletic shoe makes a difference. The tread pattern matters too. I like low even tread rather than heavily lugged soles. The heavy lugs never seem to settle in the right spot on the pedal. I's also recommend buying a good alloy studded pedal.
