Ideal as a first clipless pedal due to the adjustable cleat tension, this means you can start off with loose tension for extra easy engagement & release, & turn up the tension as you progress.

Are the Shimano R078 SPD-SL cycling shoes compatible with these pedals?

They are as long as you use the right cleats for the pedals.

Are the ladies baggy shorts water proof?

They're not waterproof, I wore them in heavy rain and they did get wet but they dried quite quickly too.
