SPD touring shoes for sz 14 EEEE foot??

I am wondering if anyone knows of a spd clip-compatible shoe manufacturer that makes a US size 14, EEEE width shoe? I have had zero luck finding such a shoe, and want to get everyone's input before I give up the search completely.

Thanks!

If Shimano's sandals dont go big enough in length (width is strap adjustments) then, it ...

May be a custom shoe makers project .. rocket 7 shoes comes to mind.. Rocket7 Custom Cycling Shoes

Specialized brand SPD compatible shoes are often available is size 14 and from what I've heard, many with 4E wide feet have found success with them, as well as Lake brand.

I wear EEEE wide and my feet keen footwear by default. You can try them out from zappos with free delivery to your house and back if they don't fit.

You can look at Sidi shoes. They make a Mega version of many of their shoes for large wide feet. Every pair of Sidis I have ever owned were well made and super comfortable. They are however, comparatively expensive.

14 (American shoe size) corresponds to about 50 (European scale). Sidis go up to at least 52, so if the straight Mega isn't wide enough, you might be able to go another size up and get a bit of extra width.

FWIW, I'd have bought at least two, if not three, pairs of Shimano shoes over the years if they didn't stop at 48.

+1 on Sidi. I used to work at a bike shop, and whenever we had someone with hard-to-fit feet, Sidi was usually what worked for them. As far as I know, they're the only bike shoe that comes in multiple widths.

Another +1 on Sidi. I wear a size 50 and have wide feet. Sidi's are the only one's that I have found that work well for me. The comfort is well worth the money for them.
