Your choice, whatever you feel suits you best. But there is no way that old-fashioned toe-clips and straps of the type Riffraff has been using are "just as convenient". They cannot be released quickly in difficult situations, are difficult to enter particularly on hill starts, don't allow any float to protect the knees, and if tight enough to be effective are likely to cause foot numbness.
