Hi. Ignorance alert.

My lovely early 90s Peugeot has original Athena calipers which are in dire need of replacement pads. Everywhere i look, Campag pads are listed as post 2000 compatible, or skeleton brake compatible, chorus/record compatible etc. If i'm buying the brake shoes as well, does the compatibility come into play? Won't any shoes (even shimano ones) work as it's just a bolt through the hole in the caliper?
