    Pedals: Crankbrothers Eggbeaters 3 on the Hardtail and CB Mallet 2s on the Rigid Singlespeed. I've never used anything different but they work great for me, no issues in 2 years. I find them easy as pie to get in and out. YMMV.

    Shoes: Pair of Scott Trail Shoes. Not a common shoe among riders on this board but they're high quality, firm, and held up great and the load.

    Whatever came on my bike, becasue they're there
    New balance minimus, because they're comfy.

    I'm probably so wrong, but I'm also a cheap a$$

    Sidi Dominator Megas (I've got duck feet) and Shimano SPD's. Pretty standard stuff, but they're comfortable and they work.

    I'm using Teva Links shoes and MG-1 magnesium platform pedals. The Links work great & I got them for $63 on Amazon. I couldn't pass that up. The MG-1 for the price I couldn't go wrong. All together I spent $110. I am happy

    XT M785 trail pedals, and Shimano 87G shoes.

    This combo seems to work well for me, feet don't get too sweaty either. Riding is mostly intermediate/advanced trail. The larger platform on the trail version of the XT pedals makes a nice difference in finding the pedal again after clipping out.

    Shimano SPDs with shimano M089 shoes. The pedals because they are relatively cheap and universally available. I bend pedals too often hitting rocks.

    I wear the shimano shoes because there are only two models of shoe that come in wide widths - a $300 sidi that is really a D width and the $120 shimano M089s that are an EE width. Too narrow and you will develop a neuroma between toes that starts out with a numbness and gets really bad. I got my neuromas from Scarpa T2 tele boots before the thermoformable liners came in.

    I also use the shimano multiple release cleats instead of the single release cleats that come with the SPD pedals because I'm an old guy and don't want to break anything else.

    On my Gary Fisher Ferrous 29 (hardtail):
    Time ATAC w/ Northwave Rebel SBS
    They were both on sale - spent about $120 for the shoes and pedals together, both off of Chainlove. I tried easing myself into clipless via some soft soled Pearl Izumi's and a half platform half clipless Wellgo pedal, but that was NOT the way to go and will tell it from the mountain to anyone who is just getting into clipless. I wanted to go cheap, did some research, and was fortunate enough to find some great deals on the ATAC and Rebels. I use clipless on the hardtail because the terrain I ride on it makes it easier to take advantage of their benefits.

    On my RIP9:
    Diety Decoy w/ 510 Freerider
    The Diety's aren't the lightest or thinnest on the market, but I found 'em for $50 and the pins are way sticky. The Freerider because of the simple lace up and 510's sticky as hell sole. Flats in general because I take more risks downhill with the RIP and appreciate the freedom. I can *almost* pedal as efficiently with this combo as with the clipless.

    I ride Time ATAC's with Sette Element shoes. My dad brought me up on Times when I raced BMX as a kid so they are what I was naturally pulled towards when I went pedal shopping. Pricepoint had a good package deal with the ATAC's and Sette shoes for $100 so that's what I went with.
    On the road I use Shimano 105's with Shimano R087 shoes.

    Deity Compound Pedals with Fox Ando or Five Ten Freerider shoes. I use the Ando's for racing since it's a lighter shoe, but the Freeriders are a little more stickier.

    I do have a set of Crank Brothers Eggbeater 3's and Bontrager shoes that are collecting dust. I figure I'll use this combo IF I ever get a road bike...

    the pedals are pinned platforms, but the pins aren't the cool replaceable kind.

    the shoes would ideally be new balance 808ATs, but new balance quit making them years ago, so i am using 810s that are falling apart.

    Eggbeaters both road and mtb - they're light, clear mud well, *always* release when I want them to (not like my old look and shimano pedals), easy to service, and I've only dabbed them on rocks a few times.
    No real profile to them. Oh, and no "up" side for entry.

    Shoes - Shimano MT22 for mtb because they were on sale for like $20, and Carnac shoes for road use because they fit like they were made for me.

    Crank Brothers Candy. I like that there is a bit of a platform, you can get in from either side, they're small and light, and they came with my bike. They're also pretty easy to get out of, but sometimes I fumble a bit getting in.

    Shoes - Shimano MTB something or other - whatever was on sale at Jensen when I went in there looking for shoes. I don't spend a ton on shoes as I'm pretty hard on them.

    Shimano XT PD-M785 Pearl Izumi X-Alp Enduro III. Have some eggbeaters also but with the softer Pearl Izumi's the XT's give better support.

    Time ATACs with Specialized Comps. Love the float and need the foot correction of the Specializeds.

    Pedals: Currently a pair of Funn Viper II's, although they are feeling pretty worn and crunchy so have a pair of DMR Vaults on the way.

    Shoes: A couple of pairs of Fox Default's (One pair in black, one pair in bright blue depending on how stealth I want to be or if I feel like mixing and matching haha). Animal friendly, super grippy and pretty long lasting. When they eventually die I will look into either the Teva Links or a pair of Five Ten Impacts.

    Times!

    I've used times for about 15 years...hard to go wrong with them. Easy to rebuild and good mud clearance. Very tough against pedal strikes. I can't complain.
    Too wet to ride!

    DMR Vaults on my better bikes and cheapie plastics on my beater bike.

    Been looking for a good deal on a pair of Teva Link Mids, but in the mean time, I've ridden with my steel toe work boots, $5 flip flops, and anything in between.

    Flats: Wellgo MG1 and Teva Pinner shoes. I found the local trails in Colorado to be much more technical and rocky than the trails I rode in the Pac NW. I decided to give platforms a try to help with the extremely sudden dismounts I was experiencing in learning to negotiate the front range trails. Not wanting to spend an exorbitant amount of money in the move to new pedals and shoes, the Wellgos and Tevas fit the bill. They work well.

    Clipless: Crank Bros Eggbeaters and Candies. For some reason, I never warmed up to the Shimano and VP SPD type pedals. I could never get them adjusted to my satisfaction to allow easy entry/exit. I noticed many of the local riders using the eggbeaters and decided to give them a try. They have worked well enough for me. For shoes, I have used a set of Shimano SH-M036 sport type of shoes. Again, they work for me. I have found that I do not necessarily need a cleat type shoe for the trails that I have been riding and prefer the comfort/practicality of a sport type shoe.
