can you recommend cycling shoes for me?

I have been taking a [indoor] spinning class for a few weeks now and I love it. I've been going 3x's a week and the instructor says that if you're going a lot you really should get shoes made for it with the clips on the bottom. my feet always cramp up a bit and she said cycling shoes will prevent them -- can you recommend some for me? and do all cycling shoes clip onto all bikes universally?

    Cycling shoes do not come with cleats, you have to buy them separately. Shoes should be fitted, meaning you should go to a store where they sell them and try on a few pairs until you find ones that fit. After that, the store can sell you the correct cleat for the pedals on the bikes in your spinning class, and install them on the shoes for you. The stiff soles of the shoes will help prevent the cramping you experience.

    I would get shoes from the local bike shop. Fit is important, most places use SPD pedals so get mountain bike shoes and cleats. The cleats come with the pedals but can be bought separately. If you have a bike get a set of Shimano M-520 pedals.
