    Cycling shoes for Bigfoot

    Does anyone else here have a shoe size _above_ 15 (Euro size 50)? I'd like to experience cliplessness, but am having a hard time finding anyone making bike shoes above size 46 or 48. A few manufacturers have size 50, which, alas, is at least one size too small for me.

    Sidi is the only company I've found after a fair amount of online checking. Some of their shoes are available up to size 52. Does anyone here know of any other companies? I'd like to have a choice of more than one brand, but maybe that's too much to ask.

    Sidi is it. I have the same issue and have looked high and low...And yes cycline shoes are made small so you will need a 51 or 52...

    Good luck...maybe try specialize I have heard rumours of bigger shoes there.

    A search on Google a couple of days ago turned up a firm that custom-builds cycling shoes. The cheapest ones start at around $350. as I recall. I don't recall the company's name.

    Note to any future big-footed readers of this thread: I wear a size 16 (US) and ordered the Sidi Dominator 4 Megas in size 52. (The Megas are "extra" wide.) They just arrived today. They fit well, though I haven't yet tried them on an extended ride. I can tell that the size 51 would have been too snug.
