Shimano 105 pedals work well enough for me.  Depends on what your requirements are really...?

three pairs of dura-ace and one pair of ultegras here - they are all very good (and for my needs, better than any other road pedal system). i like the fact that dura ace pedals are also made with 4mm longer axle, which prevents inner shoe rubbing the cranks if you tend to overpronate.

pedals normally come with cleats, but you may want to change them if you prefer a floaty or fixed ones. yellow cleats have the most float, blue ones less, red ones are fixed. dura ace come with blue cleats, most of the lower range models with yellow, afaik.

Interesting! I do have a problem with that happening.  I wonder if I am prepared for this wallet-wise...
