Wondering what size you are in Peloton shoes? Use our Peloton shoe sizing tools to find your equivalent US or UK size in Peloton shoes.
Below you’ll find the Peloton shoe sizing tool and Peloton size charts to help you find your size. We also discuss the benefits of using Peloton cycling shoes and what to consider when purchasing regular cycling shoes to use on your Peloton bike.
Finding the right Peloton shoe sizing is important to get the most out of your workouts. When your shoes are too tight, they can restrict your movement and cause discomfort. If they are too loose, you can slide around which makes it difficult to clip in and out of pedals.
Peloton shoe sizes are true to size. However, they are snug so if you have wide feet, it’s suggested to size up. You can also use our Peloton shoe sizing tool to help you find the right size.
Simply select your standard shoe size in US or UK sizing and the tool will automatically select the Peloton shoe sizing for you.
You can also measure your foot length and use our Peloton shoe size chart to find your nearest fit.

Peloton shoes are special cycling shoes designed to enhance your indoor cycling experience on a Peloton bike. Peloton has two types of shoes: Altos (that also has half sizes) and their standard cycling shoes.
Peloton’s bikes utilize a clip-in pedal system. This means that the pedals have cleats that attach to the bottom of the cycling shoes. When you clip into the pedals, your feet are securely locked in place, which allows you to push down and pull up on the pedals for a more efficient and effective workout.
Thanks to their clip-in pedal system and rigid sole, Peloton cycling shoes offer optimal support, stability and power transfer during your workouts.
However, you don’t have to buy a Peloton shoe to ride a Peloton bike. If you have a toe cage attached to the pedal, you can use standard sneakers.
You can also use a Peloton-compatible pair of cycling shoes that uses the same Look Delta cleat. For more on this, check out our Peloton Cycling Shoes guide.
While you can use standard sneakers with your bike, having proper cycling shoes like Peloton shoes or Peloton-compatible shoes will make a big difference. Here are some of the benefits of using Peloton cycling shoes.
When you use standard sneakers to spin, you generally work your quads, glutes and calves because your legs have to push down on the pedals.
When you use proper cycling shoes — like Peloton shoes — you end up pushing and pulling on the pedals. Not only does the activate your quads, glutes and calves on the push but it also activates your hamstrings, hip flexors and lower front legs.
When your feet are clipped into the pedals, more power is transferred from your legs and into the pedals which leads to increased cycling performance.
The cleats of Peloton shoes helps to keep your feet secure on the pedals, even during high-intensity workouts or climbing uphill. Your feet won’t slip around on the pedals and reduces the chance of injury.
This reduces the risk of slipping or falling, which can lead to injuries.
Peloton shoes have been designed for long hard workouts! They have breathable materials and adjustable closures to help keep your feet comfortable.
Peloton shoes and regular cycling shoes are both designed for cycling, but there are some key differences between the two.
Peloton shoes use Delta-compatible cleats, which are different from the SPD-compatible cleats that are used on most other cycling shoes like touring or cross road cycling shoes. This means that you can’t use regular cycling shoes with a Peloton bike unless the change the pedals. Plus you can’t use Peloton shoes with other bikes that use SPD cleats.
Road cycling shoes generally have Look Delta cleats so you’ll be able to use regular road cycling shoes on your Peloton bike.
Peloton shoes have a stiffer sole than regular cycling shoes. The stiffer sole helps to transfer the power from your legs through the pedals.
The higher-priced road cycling shoes tend to have a more rigid sole which will make them ideal as a Peloton cycling shoe substitute.
Tour shoes have a rubber sole and although you can use them on Peloton bikes, the flexible sole makes them less efficient at transferring power.
Peloton shoes are designed to be used on the Peloton bike and will therefore be comfortable to wear. They typically have a padded footbed, ventilation and adjustable straps to ensure a good fit.
Overall, Peloton shoes are a great option if you want a high-quality, comfortable, and efficient pair of shoes for indoor cycling especially on a Peloton bike.
However, they are not the only option available. You may be able to find a good pair of regular road cycling shoes that are more affordable especially if you can install compatible cleats.
Follow these tips to help you find the right Peloton-compatible shoe for you.
Peloton shoes should fit snugly but not too tightly. You should be able to wiggle your toes comfortably.
If you have wide feet, we suggest sizing up as they are snug. Peloton also offers half sizes, so you can get a more precise fit.
If you have a regular pair of cycling shoes that have the SPD cleats, you’ll need to change the pedals on your Peloton bike. Likewise, if you’re planning to use your Peloton shoes on a different bike, you might need to change your pedals.
If you choose an alternative to the Peloton cycling shoe, make sure it has a stiff sole. The more rigid the sole, the more the support and power transfer. However, it should be flexible enough to allow the natural movement of your feet.
Peloton shoes are usually made from breathable materials that help to keep your feet cool and dry during workouts. They also have adjustable closures so that you can keep your feet in place during workouts.
Lastly, consider how much you are planning to use your Peloton bike. If it’s just occasionally, then going for a more affordable regular cycling shoe that’s compatible might be the way to go. If you are planning on getting the most out of your Peloton bike, then investing in a pair of Peloton shoes is worth it!
Yes, Peloton shoes generally run true to size. However, if you have wide feet, you might want to size up.
They should be snug in the heel area and sides. You should have a little wiggle room in the toe area. Size up if your toes touch the front of the shoes.
No, if your toes are touching the end of your shoes, it’s best to size up. You need snug sides and a snug heel, with wiggle room for your toes.
If you are a half size, we suggest sizing up or choose a Peloton Altos that has half-sizes.
No, you can use regular cycling shoes as long as the cleats are the same or you’ve changed the pedals on your Peloton bike.
