agony of de feet

well i think i want to go clip-less and I'm a clyde everything about me is big including my feet (pls refrain from any correlation jokes to other parts of anatomy.) the thing is i am having trouble finding shoes. i wear a size 15-16 depending on the company. i am on a budget as i am a working dad with two young rippers to be (2 and a half, and 5 months) pls direct me to a affordable shoe that will suit my mountain and road needs.
Thanks,
Jollygreen

I ran into the same sort of issue. I have 5E wide paddles and I am having a terrible time finding anything below $150-200 in a shoe. I decided until I get a true road bike I'll use platform pedals unless Someone knows of a shoe in the sub $100 range that will work. I keep watching flea-bay and craigslist as well as the specials hoping to find a pair of Sidi megas heavily discounted. I would love to hear some replies to this subject. Good luck on your search Jollygreen.
