Opinion on pedals

So I'm wanting to get pedals that are casual but look pretty nice, perform well, and are durable. I'm thinking of getting these, but I've heard some mixed reviews? I want some that I don't really need cycling shoes for >.<

I'm happy with my MKS Sylvan pedals. Classic design, been around for decades.

+1 on the touring Sylvans. Quality, sealed bearing BMX platforms feel great and grip better than the Sylvans in the wet. I also love my S&M platforms and Sun Ringle ZuZus.

I'm really liking the Sylvan and ZuZus! Now I just gotta try to find one that's cheaper on Craigs xD. If not I'll just buy them new

Don't go there! If you buy from them, zombies will come to your house and eat your brains!

FWIW: I buy plenty of stuff from Universal Cycles, but that's only because they're local to me and I can pick up stuff from them on the way home from work.

For casual use, I prefer double sided pedal such as Sylvian Touring. They also make a quill style road pedal which is really single sided.
I'm not a huge fan of the GR9 platform model.

Yes as well. They have that automatic price matching on the net. They seem to go out of stock pretty quickly though.

A LOT of thought and work went into the design of these pedals. A Lot. From what I can see ,as an engineer, Ergon finally fixed the common platform pedal.

As soon as I can find the larger size Ergon pedal a set will be on both my trike and my cruiser they that impressive!!!
