How do I use them?
I am new to cycling and am wanting clip in pedals rather than the toe strap ones. I am looking at the Shimano R077 Road Cycling Shoes and am wondering if I buy them and these pedals, they will work seamlessly. Do I put these on my bike and use as is and just clip my shoes in? Sorry about my limited understanding, much appreciated!

Almost - with the pedals you will get some 'cleats'. These bolt to the bottom of the shoes you buy. The placing of these is quite sensitive so follow any instructions with the pedals about how to line-up your cleats. General rule of thumb is to try to put the cleat central (from side to side) on the shoe, and roughly across where the ball of your foot is within the shoe. After you have this basic position test the shoe/cleat combo out for comfort and adjust with 2mm movements, try again, until you feel it is right. Also best to have each shoe's cleat as a mirror of the other, unless you have a known difference between your feet, e.g. a size diff, twist, other damage/issue to allow for.
