OK, so I'm finally going with clipless pedals (on my trike, thank you), and have yet to find any in my size (13EE). Where can I get such shoes without a rigid sole and with recessed cleats? Thanks.

+ 1 on this one: I wear 16B (Eur = 51) and would LOVE to know a source for any cycling shoes in 'gorilla' sizes...especially some of those cool riding sandals that some of you enjoy year-round.

SIDI makes them up to 52. I have a pair of road shoes - 51 S (narrow).

Thanks - GreenRiver!

I just looked online at BikeNashbar and they seem to have a variety of makes & models in my size. Apparently, it wasn't the issue I thought. The only reason I thought that such shoes must be rare is because my LBS doesn't stock anything close.

Nashbar has that 52 Sidi Genius 4 Road shoe for $50 right now. If you have big feet, get it fast!

pardon, did not notice this was the 50+ board (but it is still a good deal).
