As far as shoes, I think price will influence durability more than comfort/quality. I've used a lot of different shoes. Do wins, vs athletics, and romaleos. I own a pair of $42 Wei Rui's and I pretty much always go back to them and prefer them over anything else. Google Max-Barbell llc if you're interested.
I reaaaaallllyy hated the pendlay do wins, they have like a 2nd protrusion in the middle of the foot I found extremely distracting. The others I've used felt okay/pretty good.
As far as belts, I think everyone goes with the 10mm inzer. It's like 50$ or so shipped. I use a nylon/velcro harbinger belt. You can get them at any big 5 for 20 instead of having to order on the internet and they're less supportive but less obstructive than heavier leather/pling belts. It's really easy to clean with it on, not so easy to clean with a heavier leather belt.
Shoes are more important. Belt will add lbs to your lift acutely, but shoes will actually get you performing the movement pattern correctly and enhance the amount of ROM you can go through without losing tightness even if you have theoretically perfect flexibility
