Need a new pair of shoes

We're well into spring and it's time to swap rubber. Been doing almost all pavement riding. I've been running the Shinko E-700s and I'd like to move to something more road friendly especially here in Mississippi. I ride almost everyday to work and plan on getting in a few hundred mile trips this summer.
I'm sure this is in the top 5 most repeated and annoying questions, but I'd really appreciate some feedback.
Thanks!

Continental Trail Attacks, in my experience, are great slab tires; even great WET slab tires, as far as anything being great on wet pavement goes.

Don't think you'd want to run the Dakar on 'em, but . . . they're not without some dirt/gravel/off-road capability. On pavement, I'd say--they'll hang with the pack . . . might not want to race sport bikes on the twisties, but . . . good mileage, too!
