Another option to that new system is the existing SPD system with the "Multi-Directional" cleat (SM-SH56). This cleat just makes the step-in and release a little easier than the standard cleat (no numbers on it). The advantage (over the Click'R) is that it's using the tried-and-true SPD system, and when you get comfortable with that cleat, you can replace ...
The Click'R system allows for a more recessed cleat in the shoe. It is a very similar design to Shimano SPD but is marketed for commuters and trekkers who want dual purpose shoes for when they are on and off the bike. They also allow for multi-release meaning they offer a wider range of movement to release the cleat from the pedal making them easier to use. ...
