I am pretty new to MTB but not to bikes so I have great balance and want try some form of clipless pedal but I don't want to go all in. SO I thought going with a tension adjustable SPD pedal would be a good way to work up to egg beaters.

I have http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/17736-285_SETOL8-1-Clothing-133-Shoes/Mountain/Sette-Outlaw-Mtb-Shoe-Grey.htm

I was wondering if these pedals http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/16422-240_SHI527-3-Parts-65-Pedals/Mountain/Shimano-M520-MTB-SPD-Pedals.htm are A) any good B) Work with the shoes I have (I think they will) C)Are what I am looking for as far as the next step before egg beaters.

Now I won't be getting these until September (birthday present) so I will get some more ride time under my belt first.

A) Those are excellent pedals
B) Yes they will work
C) Don't know what you are talking about

Those pedals are perfect for beginners and experienced riders alike. Eggbeaters are lighter and will shed mud better, the shimano pedals have adjustable tension.
Hope that helps.

I didn't know if SPD peddels were considered a stepping stone to egg beaters because they are adjustable were as I thought egg beaters were not.

Shimano M520 peddles are not a "stepping stone" to egg beaters. They are simply a different system and have the advantage of adjustable tension.

Both systems are good . If egg beaters are what you want to end up with, just get them to start and save the money of buying peddles twice.
