So you decided to buy narrow road race shoes, knowing you have large feet, so you bought two sizes up from what you need, but instead of having only larger shoes, you're surprised to see that they are also longer?

Just buy a larger (NOT longer) model (or brand) and be done with it, your fitting might be well of and you might be unable to put the cleat back enough to position it on the ball of your feet.
