Shimano SH41 adapter on combi pedal

Looking to buy these for my 3-holed shoes to be able to use SPD cleats..but i have combi pedals. Would this be any problem?
Maybe I'm overthinking, but can you get the cleat down in the pedal, so to speak, with the side walls of the adapter.

Do these have a name and maybe a part number? Same for your shoes and pedals.

I don't care for adapters. I'll recommend that you just get some shoes and pedals that are made for the type of cleats you wish to use.

The SPD system is designed to use a shoe that has the cleat recessed below the rubber sole. This adapter creates the same effect.

Most SPD pedals have the front 'hook' and rear clamp raised to fit 'into' the sole of the shoe. Many of the SPD pedals also has a small 'flat' area on both sides of the 'clamp' to support the rubber part of the shoes' sole.

If your pedal is designed close to Shimano's design, it should work.
