Flats or clipless?
There are plenty of cheapies around, but at a minimum I'd always recommend something with a sealing system. If going flats, then something with pins. Shimano make some nice pedals but not cheap.
I've got these before, nice pedals. https://www.bike-components.de/en/bc...Pedals-p72557/

I’ve been using Wellgo MG-1’s for years without any issues.

All depends too on your budget. Flats come in all flavors. Be forewarned about the pins: just be careful when that crank comes around and hits your shin. Been there, done that, punctured several times.

Here's a low-cost option I like: (MKS GR-9) https://www.amazon.com/MKS-GR-9-Blac...13&sr=8-5&th=1
And I've just ordered these that are more costly but still reasonable: (MKS CT-Lite) https://www.amazon.com/MKS-CT-Lite-B...%2C178&sr=8-10
Finally, these Touring ones would be in between: https://www.amazon.com/MKS-180920302...5390040&sr=8-4
I do like MKS, among the many good options.

Thank you everyone. They all look like great options. Regarding to the budget I would like to stay around 50$. And I generally prefer some light-weight options. My rides will be 40-30% on trail and 60-70% round the town sime bike paths or gravel.
