Longer pedal pins replacement

With my preferred shoe, pedal grip still not as tight as i would like it.

I have a mixture of pins and bolts, would i change both, like GUSSET SLIM JIM XL PIN KIT MTB PEDALS (STAINLESS STEEL) or just replace certain ones/types.

Also would i do both sides of the pedal to match or keep one side for my dedicated shoes and the other for everyday trainers? (or would a couple of mm not really notice too much on normal wear.)

    I would work on technique rather than long pins.

    If the OP is using the Gusset Slim Jim ones, then I had ones that looked similar. They were Ok until mud covered the pins at which point you couldn't get a decent grip.

    and the pedals are? and it is up to you.

    or change your shoes to ones that work.
