For the first time in years Peloton has released new Peloton bike shoes. The Peloton Altos Cycling Shoes are now available for purchase online. The product description reads:
Made with a single velcro strap closure to easily put on and remove, breathable jacquard mesh and a sock-like fit, Altos are our most innovative cycling shoes yet. Shoes come with cleats. Runs true to size, suitable for normal and narrow feet.
The Altos Cycling Shoes retail for $145 USD / $185 CAD. Customers can expect to receive their new shoes within 5-7 days in the U.S. and 14 days in Canada, and will be granted a 30 day return window. The shoes only appear to be currently available in the U.S. and Canada at time of publishing, and are not yet appearing on the U.K., German, or Australian sites.
There are a couple of notable differences between the new Altos Cycling Shoes and Peloton’s standard Cycling Shoes. Instead of the ratchet clip on the standard shoes, the Alto shoes use a single velcro strap to secure the shoe to the foot. They also have a more mesh/sock-like fit as opposed to the hard exterior of the standard cycling shoe. In addition, the Altos Cycling Shoes are $20 USD more expensive than the standard cycling shoe.
Both shoes include cleats with purchase, and have a 3 bolt mount system for attaching those cleats. The Bike and Bike+ are equipped with Look Delta pedals, so both Peloton cycling shoes use Look Delta cleats. They also both feature the same signature Peloton colors of black and red.
Peloton has provided a little more information about the materials used to make the shoes, saying:
- Breathable/Lightweight: Made of a breathable woven jacquard mesh and constructed with perfectly placed vents for all-over airflow.
- Easy On/Off: Simple velcro strap makes it easier than ever to strap in.
- Fit + Size: Comfortable, sock-like fit with the support you need. Available in US sizes from 5W – 15M including ½ sizes for a fuller size range.
- Materials: Jacquard Knit Upper / Velcro strap / Waffle Mesh Interior / Glass-Filled Nylon Outsole / Soft Toe and Heel Pad.
- Delta-Compatible Cleats: Included.
Peloton first began teasing this announcement over the weekend with an image of a mystery Peloton product and the caption, “Clip in, Peloton.” The next day, Jess Sims sported the new shoes in her Bike Bootcamp class. We’ll likely begin to see more cycling and Bike Bootcamp instructors showing off the new shoes in the coming weeks.
You can purchase the new shoes online here. Will you be upgrading your cycling shoes to Peloton’s new Altos Cycling Shoes?
