Shoes and pedal recommendations please

Hi all,
I ride a Marin Lucas Vally with a set of decathlon pedals and shoes. They are flat pedals (MTB I think) but they were a good intro to clipping in. I'd like to upgrade now to road pedals and shoes as my current shoes are tad small.
Any recommendations for a pedal/ shoe combo for around £100? I'm a size 12 and seems to be struggling to find much online.
TIA
NICK

Why do you want road pedals on a hybrid? Presuming you mean 3 bolt cleats (SPD-SL) which sit proud of the shoes.

Look at Sigma sport, they have lots of reduced shoes in big sizes, with benefit of free delivery & returns. They sell pedals too, albeit more expensive ones if you want SPD-SL

Here's what they have in 12-13
https://www.sigmasports.com/clothing/shoes#sales_audience_name[]=Mens&size_combinations[]=UK 12/EUR 46&size_combinations[]=UK 12.5/EUR 46.5&size_combinations[]=UK 13.5/ EUR 48 &page=1&filters={}&sort=price_low_high

eg. https://www.sigmasports.com/item/Giro/Techne-Road-Shoes/HEQ1

New pedals around £40 https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/shimano-pd-rs500-spd-sl-road-pedals/rp-prod189183

(can you also edit the thread title ...unless you're selling something ;) )

Yes! I’ll edit now thanks! The pedals I have feel clunky and quite wide. When I first bought them it was so I could transition between flat pedals and clip in.
I’ll have a look at this links now

If you want to be able to walk, stick with 2 bolt - the Shimano M520 pedals are small, neat and cheap :okay:

These shoes available for example in a 47/48

Halfords have 2 bolt shoes under £80
