    SPD will be fine. Mostly depends on the type of riding.
  • I use shimano mtb spd on both my cross bikes

    Any brand of MTB pedal will be fine off and on road .
    Focus Cayo Pro
    Cotic Soul custom
    Merida Cross 4
    Planet X Dirty Disco custom cyclocross
    Tern D8 clown bike
  • These are what I've always used on my mtb and what I'll be using for my first cross season

    Assuming you mean SPD rather than the SPD-SL road pedals you should be fine although in heavy mud any pedal / cleat can clog up.

    SPDs aren't the best, I've had them clog with mud and leaves - Eggbeaters, Time and Look are better in this respect, pressing down on the foot simply squeezes anything on the foot through the bars.
