Flat road pedals?

Can anyone recommend a flat road pedal with pins that will work well with a flat MTB shoe (either a Five Ten or a Shimano GR9, depending on weather).

I ride DMR V12s on my MTB but they just look stupid/huge on a carbon road bike. 

I've also got the XT T8000 trekking pedal but that defaults to the cleat side which is fiddly when riding with flats, particularly in towns and villages

Closest I've found is Shimano's PD-GR500 but they're way too big and aggressive for road riding.

At this rate I might end up going back to SPDs but I've only ridden flats for two years so I worry I'm out of the habit.

    These would be ideal for security in the garage, and out and about for our bikes lost two in the past.

    But if it doesn't look like a car's going to pull up, you find someone in the same-coloured top as you and make them give you their bike.

    Agreed on that, he was definitely part of my first week plans! Not to mention my French riders team - that is in tatters without Le Coq!
