You need the "Cartridge Road Shoes".
I hate to give these pads a negative review because Velo Orange usually puts out good products, but their "squeal-free compound" is incredibly hard wearing on rims. I brought a handful of them on tour last year, and on one long rainy descent in Laos, I looked down to see my fork (and even waterbottle) covered in a thick layer of aluminum dust. I've done some incredible descents in my life, and have never seen anything like that.
On the other hand, they really didn't squeal on my chronically squeal prone bike. Koolstop Salmon pads squeal and shutter like crazy on that bike. I would say that if you plan to use the pads in everyday riding, you're fine. Just don't take them touring in the mountains.
