Shoes

I hope this is the right place for this post. Looking for a size 15 shoe (or 50) for flat pedals. I have spds for my mountain bike set up. I'm looking for a stiff mt bike sport shoe with a grippy sole. Most companies stop at 14. Help.

I'm afraid I can't help you, but I would be interested in knowing what spd shoes you have and where you got them. I have a pair of Shimanos, but they're too narrow for my feet. I need to find something else before RAGBRAI this summer.

I just bought a pair of Lake road shoes. Lake shoes seem to come in up to size 50. As a little review, I put in about 45 miles on them this weekend and loved them. My specialized mountain shoes cause me feet to go numb after about 10 miles.

I've got a pair of Northwave 50's that fit great. Tried Sidi size 50's which were too small - but the Northwaves are fine. I'm a size 15 usually.
