If there is a store nearby, take the stirrup with you. The holes aren't completely standardized, and that is the critical part to match. The rubber pd will be OK if the pad is too small, and can be cut if it is too big.
Or go without. Ronald Reagan rode without them. If your boots have vibram or rubberish soles, then I prefer no pads. If you have leather soles, then the pads help, IMHO.
