Suggestions for clipless sandals & pedals?

I have some toe clips on my commuter, and while they're okay with tennis shoes, they really suck with sandals, and I wear sandals a lot including winter.

Anyone have a clipless sandal and pedal they particularly like. I have Look style pedals on my roadie, and I prefer them over SPDs, but at this point, SPD sandals would be far > sandals w/ toe clips. I'm open to any clipless sandal.

My tandem partner and I both like our Shimano sandals now that we've inserted an arch support insole between each foot and footbed. We're currently using Eggbeater pedals/cleats with the sandals, but we have sometimes had alot of trouble getting clipped in. We're glad that spring will soon be here, as that problem seems to be worse in the winter months.

PD-M424 Shimano, then Lake or Shimano Sandals, multi or single release cleat. Very comfortable and can even be considered all year round

A strong second on the Lake or Shimano Sandals with SPD multi release cleats. Great in the warmwer months, good down to about 50 with the Smartwool ultimate sandal socks.
