Anyone recognize these pedals?

Hi, all -

I've had these pedals for about 6 years. SPDs, came with my Felt at the LBS' discretion. I'm considering swapping them out for SPD-SL pedals, but I'm kind of curious what they are. ...

I've been a chemist for 20 years and work at a wastewater treatment plant. If xylene is the worst thing I'm exposed to today, I'm doing good. :)

My concern with leaving it is that the old glue is completely crystallized. Hitting it with naphtha or xylene does nothing to solublize the stuff, so I don't know that new glue would do anything,...
