I've bought an old racing bike with Shimano PD 1056 pedals installed and I am in need to buy cleats compatible with these. G****e search for "PD 1056 cleats" reveal SHIMANO SM-SH11 SPD-SL cleats, but I could not find the pedals in any compatibility list für these cleats.

Are these both compatible or is there a better suggestion?

Here are some photos of the pedals:

  • All SPD cleats are interchangeable, so it is likely that they work. However, I don't know what you mean by G***e, but Google does not find any pedals numbered PD 1506.

    Yeah, to my mind, Google is taking the "PD" and "cleats" and turning up modern cleats because they still use PD to name all their pedals. Searching for the PD1506 pedals I can't find any results, they must be too old for casual searches. Try adding a photograph of the pedals here using edit so we can see what they look like for a start. I would not suggest buying SM-SH11 just yet

  • Edited my question accordingly, and I just realised that unfortunately - mea culpa - I permuted two digits in the model number, its PD 1056, NOT PD 1506. Aug 5, 2019 at 13:49
  • That looks like an old Look pedal. It doesn't look like a current SPD-SL cleat would work. Aug 5, 2019 at 14:25
  • Yes, Shimano made some licensed Look clones before developing SPD variants. bikepro.com/products/pedals/shimlook.html

1 Answer 1


These pedals will take the old style Look Delta cleats, NOT the Keo-type. The cleats are readily available from Look retailers. You can have them with the same specifications as the Keo cleats, in black, grey and red with 0°, 3° and 6° sideways free rotation.

Be aware though that the pedals have built-in sideways freedom of movement, toggled by the slotted screw at the rear so that it's not a good idea to buy the grey or red type. Probably too much of the good!
