Nothing wrong with Lake shoes. I've had them before and they are OK. I can't think of any reasons why they are any better or worse than their Shimano equivalents that I've also had. And at £25 they are very cheap.
Lake shoes are fine. Wellgo pedals are pretty much at the 'affordable end of the market. I was watching someone with a new bike with them last week who just couldn't clip in easily. Of course I don't know for sure that that was down to the pedals, but it wasn't a novice.
