Try some SpeedPlays. Very easy to get into because they are double sided and you just need to step down on them. Some people can't get used to all the free float they have but I love mine...

also, no adaptors needed for SIDI shoes (I think the speedplays come with their own adaptors). the resulting combo is one of the lightest shoe/pedal combos. plus the stack height will be very low.
Sidis and Speedplay. But opinions vary - nmMcAndrus

I have to contrube my ravings about the sidi and speedplay combo ... i've used speedplay (which are great) for quite a while with some shimano shoes. Just the other week got a pair of sidi's though, and the way the speedplay cleat fits up in that recess in the sole puts your foot incredibly close to the spindle. Allowed me to lower my seat (and center of mass) a few millimeters on each bike, which always helps the cornering and such.

Sorry if you're sick of your sidi shoes in themselves, in which case my comment is of no help.
