I use SPD, specifically Shimano PDM324, dual sided pedals, with mountain bike shoes (again, Shimano,) because they are easier to walk in (quiet too). Dual sides allow you to ride with bike specific shoes, and any other footwear, which is really handy. It pays to buy name brand pedals and shoes, as the cheaper house brands were no where near the quality and performance of the Shimano stuff.
Watching sales at places like nashbar, Performance, and others, you can make the complete switch for less than $100.
Best change I ever made, bicycling.
