    Where to buy biking shoes for big feet?

    I know "big feet" isn't always associated with clydes but i'm 6'4" / 250 pounds and wear a size 15 shoe... SOMETIMES I can get away with a 14 depending on shoe brand. I've been scavanging through performance bike, nashbar, etc. and just can't find anything my size. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    ***EDIT Nevermind... I found some

    http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product...04_-1___202362 I wear 48's with a shoe size of 13-14. So maybe a 50 for you.

    For anyone that stumbles into this thread as a consequence of searches in the future.

    Sidi build road and mountain shoes up to a Euro 51 (US 15 or 16) and do a "Mega" range that is built wide. Genius 5 and Dominator models.
    Bont does high end carbon soled road shoes to 51
    Lake makes some models to 51
    As does Shimano

    I'm a true US 15 on a Brannock and find 51 to generally be just a little tiny bit big and 50 to be a little too snug, so wear 51's.

    I am a 15 in every shoe I buy and I wear a 50 in sidi. I have both their road and mtb shoe and they fit fine. Shimano says 51 equals a 15 us...haven't tried on on however. I found mine on amazon and zappos.

    My Sidi's are quite old. I believe they have chagned their lasts slightly since then. I tried on some Shimano 51's last year and they seemed to run just slightly longer than the Sidi's. I could probably be happy with a 50 in the Shimano. I haven't tried on Bont's, but, according to their fit chart and suggestion that you add approximately 4mm to your foot length, I would be a 51 in those as well. I pose a slight fit challenge in that my feet differ in length by about 5mm.

    Vesteroid, can you wear a 15 Nike? I can't. They run too small for me. A 15 New Balance on the other hand is 'just' acceptable. If they did a 15 1/2 I'd be set.
