most any smooth soled cycling shoe that has three holes in a triangle with one hole toward the front and two to the back.

Most shoes are compatible with LOOK cleats. As Bianchigirl says, three holes in a triangle with one hole toward the front and two to the back. But also keep in mind there are also different styles of LOOK cleats. The Keo model of LOOK cleats are not compatible with this pedal. LOOK also sells the ARC replacement cleat (red) which allows some float (9 degrees with non-Free ARC pedals such as the one in the eBay link); and the Delta replacement cleat (black), which is what was originally used with these pedals and does not allow any float.

Float is the amount of side-to-side movement you have once locked into the pedal--i.e. how much you can rotate your heel from side to side. (Btw, I *believe* TIME pedals were the first to introduce float.) Having float is considered to be easier on the knees. At least, not having float and not aligning your cleats properly can lead to knee trouble...so I've heard.
