 I am looking in my BikeNash catalog…
how do I know which shoe goes with which pedal?

The left shoe goes with the left pedal and the right shoe goes with the right pedal. Most pedals will have an “L” and an “R”  on the axle to indicate which one is left and which one is right.

Seriously though, if you went to the LBS then why did you not purchase the shoe/pedal combo at the LBS? Sometimes you get what you pay for.

One more thing with regard to left and right, the axle threads go different directions on the left and right pedal so if you are installing them yourself or having someone unfamiliar with cycling components install them make sure they read the directions and do not cross thread the pedals. Having to buy a  new set of cranks will wipe out all of your online purchase savings. Some cleats (the attachment part that screws into the sole of the shoe) are sometimes right and left and you will need to read those instructions too.
