Campy Veloce compatible brake shoes?

I am looking to replace my old (but necessarily worn out) Campy Veloce rim brake shoes, as I plan to go up the Transfagarasan and I need some inner peace regarding my brakes on the descent. I am having trouble finding anything compatible, so any advice is appreciated.

The current brake shoes are Campagnolo VL-600. I would be looking to replace them with insert-compatible ones, preferably KoolStop, SwissStop. Can anyone provide a compatible replacement?

Why not just buy the same VL-600 to replace? If not, wouldn't any brake shoe work as long as it (1) uses a bolt that would fit through the caliper arms, and (2) is not too thick for the brake calipers?

Hi,

Well, thing is, I am not sure how good the VL-600 are on heavy descents. The climb I mentioned in initial post is 21 miles long and 6000ft of elevation gain. The road is very twisty. I am worried they might melt.

Scott SBR Mathauser pads with the magnesium finned holders. Work great on my Campy dual-pivot brakes. Pads can be replaced.

Buy new; I've seen a couple at our local Co-op with cracked holders.
