If you’re looking for a new pair of shoes, you may be wondering if Peloton shoes run true to size. This guide will help you decide what size shoes to order and give you tips on how to make sure they fit properly. Keep reading to learn more!
Peloton shoes are designed for indoor cycling, so they’re meant to be snug and provide the proper support that you need during a class. You can take a look at our sizing tips below to determine what size shoe is going to fit best for your foot.
What Size Shoes Should I Order?
If you have NEVER purchased Peloton shoes before, you should order the same size that you normally wear in other athletic shoes. Please note that many of our customers tend to go up a half size to accommodate for extra arch support and comfort.
If you have purchased Peloton shoes in the past and know the exact size and model number of the shoe that fits best, you can use that information to determine what size shoe to order. Make sure you take a look at the sizing chart below for more information on how our shoes run.
Peloton Shoe Sizing Chart – What Size Shoes Should I Order?
To determine what size shoe to order, follow the guidelines listed below based on your US shoe size.
Peloton Shoes Fit True To Size?
The answer to the question “do Peloton shoes run true to size?” is generally yes. If you are a brand new customer looking for your first pair of Peloton cycling shoes, we recommend that you order the same US shoe size that you normally wear in athletic shoes.
If you have a previous pair of Peloton cycling shoes that fit well, or know the exact size and model number of the shoe that fits best, then we recommend using those numbers to determine what size shoe to order.
Please note that many of our readers tend to size up to a half-size larger so there is more arch support and comfort. If you have wide feet or bunions, we recommend going up a full size.
When Should I Order New Shoes?
If you’re an experienced Peloton rider who has fallen in love with the Classics, you’ll want to make sure you have a new pair every year. This ensures that your shoe lasts through all of your practices and is in great condition when it’s time for class.
If you’re riding another Peloton bike with the Cycling Class Membership (Tread or Bike), we recommend having at least two pairs on hand at all times. There are some days where you might wear one pair of shoes to class, but that isn’t always the case!
What Shoe Is Best For Me?
One question we get asked a lot is what type of shoe you should look for in the Peloton store. There are a few options available, ranging from offering support to being waterproof.
This type of shoe is an excellent choice if you enjoy riding through the rain or sweating a lot during your classes. The water-resistant types are great because they help to keep the floor clean and dry. We recommend these for customers who ride in wet areas, have sweaty feet or live in cooler climates.
The only downside with this style is that they aren’t as breathable as a non-water resistant shoe. If you’re going to be riding indoors in a dry climate, these shoes are perfect for you!
The more technical types of cycling shoes aren’t necessarily meant to help with sweat or water resistance. Instead, they sit on the more flexible side of the spectrum, but still provide ample support for your foot.
If you enjoy riding indoors in a dry climate, or love to feel the wind whip against your skin – this is the shoe for you!

What Is The Right Fit?
You’ll want to make sure that there’s enough room between your big toe and the front of the shoe. This space is called “toe wiggle room” and it allows you to move back and forth in your shoes when you ride, without cramping up or getting pain in your feet!
If you have a smaller foot, make sure to look for a cycling shoe that has a Shank. The Shank helps add structure to the shoe and can make it feel like a glove. It also helps with stability and overall comfort while you ride.
Another element to think about when it comes to fit is the Cleat Wedge. This feature makes it easier for cyclists who have wide feet, bunions, or other foot abnormalities to get a comfortable fit that will stay in place throughout the class!
In the end, it’s really about finding a shoe that fits your personality, style, and riding needs.
There are shoes for every budget and preference so get out there and try them on! Test out a few styles before choosing one to make sure you get something you love. You can always return or exchange if you change your mind.
