I started witha $40 pair of Diadora's from Ebay and the SPD A-520 pedals as the first foray into clipless pedals.
Now that I have done a bit of riding and want top keep going, I have just bought a better pair of shoes (Cannondale RP2000 - actually made by Diadora as well) and soem Time RXS Carbon pedals.
Start out with something that fits and is cheaper to get started, and then go from there.
If you can, try on heaps of shoes, as they don't all fit the same. I tried on a few, and most were pretty good, but when I put on the Cannondales, they were superb, so I bought them !!!

I agree. Often this is the best way to go as it allows the individual to assess what's important for him/her. It's one of those thing that can be considered to be tuition fee.

As per the others, you really won' know what you want until you have experienced a set for perhaps a year or so.
BTW, the most important thing is that they fit properlly, which is a bit tricky with mail order.
And just thought I mention that there's a ace Veteran rider that sogood and I know (sideshowbob) who purchased the carbon soled Exaustar's from T7 and loves them.
