Yet another pedal question...

I need advice specific to me, so the old posts weren't
quite what I needed.

I'm a year round commuter, intend on doing a few tris
a year, and I mountain bike in the foothills quite a
bit. I just switch my pedals around depending. I'm
looking for a good clipless that can be used for
intense commuting and training but maybe is flat
enough to be used as a regular pedal on trips to the
grocery store. (weight is not an issue) I also need a
pair of shoes that I can wear at the bar if I meet
friends but not necessarily all day at work or
anything like that. (which I think rules out the hard
shoes I see all over) Perhaps a recessed cleat? I
commute the most, train for the tris second, and
mountainbike third.

What would be a good shoe and pedal for me?

Thanks in advance for all of the good advice!!

I use and would recommend a nice mountain bike shoe with recessed cleat and mountain bike SPD pedals for commuting, mountain biking, trainning, shopping and for the bar. I have Lake MB shoes, they walk great, but the laces are a pain.

You probably want seperate shoes and pedals for actual triathlons.
question everything.
