I have yet to find a truly all day comfortable mtb shoe. I was a SIDI believer (the cheap model with 3 velcro straps only) for years and years. Then magically, the shoes were too small. Did my feet grow that much? Apparently so. So I began looking for something else. All the cool new shoes no longer used buckle, but BOA dials. So I tried about 10 brands and pairs of boa shoes. One thing became apparent quickly – the cheap boas that didn’t offer the ability to loosen with a turn were out of the running. So that left mainly higher end shoes that weren’t cheap, and were almost always way too narrow. 
To make a long story short, I went right back to velcro. I found a pair of low end Shimano XC shoes in my local Performance Bike shop, remember them? They were a touch bigger than my usual 42, at 43, and were $50 on clearance. I bought them purely as a backup pair due to the price. Since that’s all I had, I threw cleats on, and have been using them for 6 years now. I even bought 2 more pairs dirt cheap on ebay. 
So $50 velcro shoes for the win. They are wider than usual, but very flexy in the sole. But I haven’t stopped looking for stiffer, yet comfy shoes. One of my issues is I have a protruding bone on the side of my right foot. It sticks out almost 1/2”. I broke this bone in high school jumping my bmx bike off of a picnic table, slipped a pedal, and slammed it into the ground. I had a cast put on, but I ignored the docs orders to not ride my bike for 2 months. It never healed properly, so it’s been an issue now for 40 years. Why do I bother telling you this? Well, where that bone sticks out is exactly where many brands mount their lower BOA dial. Shimano comes to mind. I can’t have a hard piece on the side as it rubs my bone and causes great pain.
That leads us to Lore 3D custom cycling shoes. You do a 3D scan of your feet, and they print you a pair of shoes. Now their website only shows road shoes, no 2 cleat options available. And sadly, they probably never will make MTB shoes. But maybe this takes off, and other companies, including some major players, will follow suit.
At $1500-$2000 US dollars, I would have to pass at this stage, but man, the thought of having the perfect shoes, and saddle for that matter, is enough to make me dream…
