Speedplay Zeros (walkable cleats) Vs 105 (5800 series) pedals

Hello all,

I am ready to upgrade my 105 (5700 series) pedals (looking "warn" and are "heavy") and wondering what to upgrade to after three years.

The 5800's are lighter and have better bearings. Con, they are still one sided.

I have always been interested in the Speedplay Zero's but was hesitant due to the expensive cleats.

Now, I have seen there is an option with the "Areo Cleats" that would allow protection of the cleat and help with walking.

Primarily I ride on smooth to slightly rough roads. I was wondering what opinions are on the two or three options, depending on how you look at it are? Should I go with 5800? Regular Zeros? Zeros with Areo Cleats?

All thoughts an opinions welcome.
