    Good SPD pedal and shoe setup

    Hey guys. I am planning on getting some pedals and shoes. I am trying to do this for about a buck fifty, and have a few things Im looking for:

    A stiff shoe, but with MTB cleats so I can walk around in them after I get off work and not have to bring spare shoes to peoples houses.

    Preferably, a SPD type cleat design that has an easy in/out.

    Pedals that have some sort of dual sided setup, but can be ridden on the road just fine.. hopefully not MTB specific.

    What do you guys recommend for me?!

    Thanks!

    i like my shimano MO76 shoes, stiff enough for me and very walkable. as for pedals you can't really go wrong with shimano m520 pedals or time atac aliums.

    i'm also using my shimano mo-76, paired with some eggbeaters. i like them a lot, comfortable, stiff, breath okay, and the pedals are great.

    Shimano 520 also and Specialized Taho shoes I got for half off since they were the 08 or 07 model I can't tell but I paid under $80 including pedals.

    I really liked my M520s. Super reliable and they had excellent cornering clearance. Only issue I had with them was when tightening up my release tension the return on my float became too stiff and started giving me knee troubles. I now ride Time ATAC.

    For shoes, Sidi Bullet 2s are awesome.

    Anybody have info on these shoes?

    They look like they'd be decent walking around shoes.
