What type of brake pads do I need to get?

Hello there! Sorry for such a newbie question, I just don't really feel comfortable asking this at my local bike shop since some of the representatives are kind of elitist.

I was wondering what kind of new brake pads I should get. The brake says "Weinmann 610/Vainqueur 999" and the original brake pad says "Weinmann BREV". Below is a link to some pictures I took for a previous question.

I replaced the back pads a little bit ago with these cheap plastic or rubber ones and they're almost worn away already so I want something that will work well and last for a while. I'd rather not spend more than $15 for a pair on Amazon.

Kool Stop Continental pads are the best replacement for those brakes.

I am partial to shimano pads ever since reading in Bicycle Science that the material used excedes all others in the wet as well as dry conditions.

It is possible to put shimano style pad holders. This will give you more adjustability and readily availible pads but will sacrifice origoinality.
