Cages or straps like power grips will make you more proficient without costing very much. One advantage of cycle specific shoes is they have a plate in the bottom that reduces foot fatigue over a long period on the bike. I’ve never ridden a week in tennis shoes, so I don’t know how much of a difference it really makes. I know with my crappy feet, a week without my sandals would kill me at this point. If you decide to get clipless pedals, get something with recessed cleat that is easy to walk in. Carbon fiber soles are great for time trialing, but almost impossible to walk around in.
