Most of what you need to know has already been explained in the other answers: No need to "push down hard on the heel of the shoe" when unclipping. A simple twist of the foot suffices. Adjusting the tension on the mechanism is important. Higher tension means less likelihood of accidentally unclipping, but does mean it's a little harder to get in ...

Gotex socks. Yes, they sound gimmicky and uncomfortable. However, I used to hike 20 to 30 miles a day in boggy terrain, and my feet stayed toasty warm and dry! You should wear thin merino wool socks inside for best effect. That said, REI sells waterproof biking socks for cheaper made for the job.

Those Cleats are practically indestructible! You will be running in those shoes over rocks and gravel in a race! Kick and stomp in and twist out. Way safer then toe clips for MTB!

I suspect you're doing this in the air, before fitting the pedals to your bike. Or possibly you're putting a bare cleat in the pedal. Either way, its really hard to get things working like that. Instead, fit a pedal to your bike, and install a cleat on your shoe. Then back off the release tension to minimum to begin with if your pedals have a tension ...

You're not going to break them, and really, their advice is too complicated. To clip in, just stomp your foot on the pedal in the right spot. If you don't get it right, try again. Pretty quickly it will become second nature. To clip out, rotate your heel outward. That's it. This pedal lets you set the disengagement resistance with a screw on the back if you ...

No, you cannot break the cleats nor the shoes or pedals with any reasonable movements. They are made to withstand even large forces directly pulling the cleats from the shoes and various forces that happen in heavy terrain. Jest turn your heel outward and that should unclip you easily (at least that's what I do in the MTB pedals made by CB but I believe ...
