What are Peloton shoes?

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. 

Peloton shoes are designed to be used with your Peloton bike. They have a special cleat system that clips your feet into the pedals. However, you can also use standard sneakers with a toe cage or Peloton-compatible shoes.

The benefits of using Peloton shoes

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 and really help maximize your calories burned biking. Here are some of the benefits of using Peloton cycling shoes. 

A whole-leg workout

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.

Greater power output

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

Improved stability

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.

Greater comfort

Peloton shoes have been designed for long hard workouts! They have breathable materials and adjustable closures to help keep your feet comfortable. 

Using Peloton shoes works your whole leg. The cleats provider greater stability and prevent your feet from slipping. Lastly, the material is breathable and closures adjustable to keep your feet comfortable.

How are Peloton shoes different from regular cycling shoes?

Peloton shoes and regular cycling shoes are both designed for cycling, but there are some key differences between the two.

Cleats

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. 

Sole stiffness

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. 

Comfort

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. 

Peloton shoes have Delta cleats and a stiffer sole than most regular cycling shoes. They are also designed specifically for the Peloton bike so they will be comfortable. You can find a decent pair of cycling shoes that are Peloton-compatible especially if they have Delta cleats or you change your pedals.

Tips for choosing the right Peloton shoes

Follow these tips to help you find the right Peloton-compatible shoe for you. 

Fit

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.

Cleat compatibility

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. 

Sole stiffness

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. 

Breathable material and adjustable closures

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! 

Peloton shoes should sit snug with a little room to wiggle your toes comfortably. Peloton-compatible shoes have the same cleat system as Peloton bikes - this will save you from having to change the pedals. Lastly, consider also the sole stiffness, the materials and the closures.

FAQs

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.
