    Size 16 Big Feet help?

    Hello all,

    Just getting back into Cycling. Purchased my first road bike since I was a kid. Found a 06 Trek Pilot 2.1 63cm on sale for $1000. Trouble I am having is finding shoes that fit. I wear size 16 us and my feet are narrow/flat. I purchased a pair of of Sidi Bullets in a 50. Width wise they are fine but I could use little more length. Anybody know of any shoes larger then a 50 that won't break the bank?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    I think I just found my solution. Sidi Dominator Narrow up to a size 52. $230.

    Most Sidis come up to size 52, and a 50 is roomy on my solid 15D's. Diadora also makes a few models, at least one road shoe and two mountain shoes, in large sizes. I can't remember the model names (one is Jalapeno, but I think that's out of production now). I have a couple of pairs of those I bought in a clearance sale from Nashbar for about 40 bucks each, and they're fine, especially for the price. I also have a pair of Northwave MB shoes I got from Sierra Trading Post, and you can search their Web site by size, www.sierratradingpost.com.
    It's worth checking the sites at Nashbar and Performance occasionally, too, because they sometimes have a few pairs of large sizes that don't make the print catalog and they often sell them cheap.
    I've been hunting for bike shoes pretty much constantly for 30 years, and for a long time I ordered a pair whenever I saw them, because I never knew when I'd get another chance. Now I have three pairs in use and four sitting in the closet in boxes, so I might slack off...

    Yup, my 16 B size is d*mn hard to find. Never have found any MTB's but keep looking. The only pair I have are the SIDI's you cited. Would LOVE to have an MTB pair. Sierratradingpost is a good place to look and I've had good response and service from them.

    Well, whaddya know...there's others out there that wear a 16! I gave up on the cycling shoe acquisition-search (the ones available are WAY too expensive) and went to XL toe clips and straps on all my bikes. I know, I know, but it works for me.

    My 16yo son wears size US17/Eur52 shoes. His 14yo brother is currently in size US16/Eur50. (I'm merely US12/Eur47.) For athletic shoes, dress shoes, sandals, hiking boots, etc. we depend on Zappos for their large size selection. But Zappos has no cycling shoes. I never noticed Sierra Trading Post has cycling shoes, but I looked just now - wow, you're right! Two pairs of Sidi shoes are on their way, one 51 and one 52. Thanks for the tip!

    No bike shoes, but a nice selection of big shoes:

    Oddballshoe is a great site. That's where I get most of my shoes.
