Big Foot

I'm new to road riding and in the process of looking for a pair of shoes for clipless pedals.

Only problem is that I have size 14 EEEE feet!!

Can anyone suggest a company that makes 4E shoes--I've found a couple that have 2E shoes but none that offer anything larger. I'm not a racer and don't want to be--just enjoy riding at a fair pace.

Thanks.

Try the sidi mega's (sorry about the price!) I wear 12.5 EE or EEEE. The size 48 Dominator mega is actually a little too wide for me.

Pearl Izumi also makes a shoe that has wide sizes, I've got a model thats about 5 years old.

All those shoes I mentioned are mtn shoes, I run spd on my road bike. Works like a charm and I can walk around in both. (I even hike in the pearl izumi's)

I'm a 15E, and Sidi megas are the only ones I know of. The 50s are actually a hair too wide for me (I've tried them on, but I don't actually own any. I'm getting by with some mountain bike shoes I've had for years, because it just ticks me off to pay Sidi prices).

I'm with ya - 13EEEE Sucks doesn't it!

I've found some stuff through http://zapos.com - free shipping both ways.

But for everyday, dress, sneakers, etc... the best place I've found has been http://www.bamason.com

I would get a good pair of shoes that are comfortable and then screw cleats into the bottom of them.
