So, you’ve done it. You splurged on an at-home Peloton bike to enjoy top-notch spin sessions from the comfort of your own home. And you’re not alone. Peloton has been thriving during the quarantine economy. The New York-based brand’s stock rose 95% by early May when stay-at-home orders first took place across the U.S. and workout centers remained closed.

In order to properly ride your new indoor stationary 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 top options on the market, including styles from Peloton and other quality brands that specialize cycling gear.

Ahead, shop our edit of cycling shoes for men and women to fit your at-home Peloton bike.
