    Best pedals for big feet

    I'm size 13-14 and using spd type pedals that came with my bike. Basically, I can't keep my feet on the pedals.

    Huh? You're clipping in right? Are you disengaging the cleat too easily? Tighten down the spring on the pedal so you can't clip out as easily (if I'm understanding this right).

    If they're just not wide enough, the new(er) shimano line up of road pedals have a wider platform.

    I've always (since 1990) used Looks so I can't give comparisons but my sz 12 EE get along well with them.

    I have size 14 feet as well and had the same problem with SPD style pedals. I ended up switch out shoes to a carbon sole and bought Ultegra pedals (see below)

    Size 13 here using Eggbeaters on the mountain bike and Look knockoffs on the road bike. No problems.

    Are you having a problem while clipped in? Or are you riding the plastic inserts that come on the flipside of the pedals? Are you pedals similar to the following picture?

    Pulling the trigger as often as possible.

    I have 14s (48 in bike talk). I use SpeedPlay Frogs. I also like to be able to walk on my big feet.

    No unclipping problems. I use Specialized shoes, so not hot spots either.

    I wear Sidi 50 & 49 (US size 15). I have used Looks, and now have all Shimano pedals: PD6600, 6602, & 7800. I have no problems. Not clear what you mean by "I can't keep my feet on the pedals."
