Need a Good Ferrier

I figure this is the best forum to talk about big shoes. The 120 pound climbers design all shoes so it's tough for us.

I did find a pair of Keen wides at REI. But that's not enough. I did my first ride, over an hour, in them today and my toes went to sleep.

I would really like SPD compatible shoes that has a little lug for when I have to walk up the hill and have Velcro closures. My favorite running show is a 13 Quad E. I could probably wear 14's.

Don't know of any that are neccessarily 4E wide, but:

Sidi "Mega" are reasonably wide and expensive.

Shimano makes a "wide" version of some of it's models up to a 51 or 52.

Lake does some larger sizes, but, I don't know about width.

If you try a couple searches of this forum, there was a thread about just this topic within the last month or so, with a fairly comprehensive list of the large and wide shoe manufacturers.

Before you go buying more shoes and/or pedals. Make sure your pedals are in the right position. Try moving your cleats back on your shoe. With feet as big as yours, I'd go all the way back.

As far as SPD's go, I can't use them. I get hot spots with them. I think the platform size is too small. I don't have that problem with Look and Time style pedals/cleats.

Moving them back is good advice. I did that and it did help. Looking for better. I like feeling my toes.
