I use Speedplay frogs and Sidi (Women's) Dominator shoes - and I usually carry a pair of Chaco sandals for off-bike wear.

I use Campagnolo Record "Titanium" Pro-Fit Plus pedals & Lake CX100 shoes. Pedals are excellent.

well I have now tried SPD and Eggbeaters. I have tried these with a couple of different shoes, including Lake Sandals.

Does not look like I can use a small 2 bolt cleat. No matter what I do I get hot spots. So for me I will continue to use Look brand cleats with the cleat covers to walk in. If I am touring and plan to stop for any time to walk around I will change my shoes.

I have eggbeaters on all my bikes. I mostly wear Shimano SPD sandals, and can experience some toe numbness if I cinch them too tight on long rides. If that happens, I just loosen the front strap a touch, and the numbness goes away.

Of note: I wore my MTB shoes (Canondale clogs) while riding the other day-I had not worn them for riding in a couple months. The clogs sole seemed "super flexy" compared to the stiff sandal sole. Very wierd feeling. I had experienced hot spots on long rides with these shoes in the past (before switching to the sandals).

Shimano tennis shoe-looking shoes and Shimano "campus" pedals. These pedals are much better than the Wellgo version that came with me bike and are worth the price, I think.
