20 High-Performance Cycling Shoes That Fit Peloton Bikes

So, you’ve done it. You’ve invested in a Peloton bike to enjoy top-notch spin sessions from the comfort of your own home. The popular stationary bike is characterized by a large screen on the front and rear speakers, which allow you to work out by taking part in any of the thousands of classes offered via Peloton’s All-Access membership. Peloton connects you to live and on-demand workouts with instructors to help motivate you to reach your goals.

In order to properly ride your new Peloton bike, though, you’ll need the right shoes to match the bike’s tread dimensions. Your spinning shoes should be able to attach to Delta-compatible cleats, so, instead of a two-bolt shoe, you’re going to want a cycling shoe with a three-screw hole setup. This means the screw outline on the sole of your shoes will form a triangle made up of three holes.

To ensure you find a great pair for your money, we did some research and rounded up 20 great cycling shoes that should fit Peloton bikes. We included styles for men and women, including one from Peloton and options from quality brands that specialize in cycling gear.
