OFG, it is hard to find good shoes in larger sizes that are stiff enough for cycling and narrow enough to fit into traditional quill style pedals. I have a pair of the same paramount shoes, which I got in a trade from another forum member, and have been thinking along the same lines as OP. I was actually thinking of cutting a pair of soles out of an old bicycle tire and sticking them on with contact cement.
