    Clipless shoes for big feet?

    Can we make a list of companies/models of shoes that are offered in larger sizes?

    I've got an aging pair of Sidis but might want to try a different brand in the future.

    What kinda clipless shoes does everyone else where that are available in larger sizes (48+)?

    If they don't already stock it, these guys will make most any size shoe for a very slight upcharge.

    Shimano goes up to a 52 in their MO87G shoes. Zappos have them, or at least they did recently. Shimano goes up to 50 in a few other shoes. Lake typically goes up to a 50, they seem to be hard to find in the states though. I found some Exustar shoes on endless.com that came in a 50 and I think they might have had bigger sizes. Sidi sells their dominators in up to a 52, but they are pricey. Diadora makes some shoes that go up to 50. Other than that, I don't know of any other brands that sell big sizes 50+.

    Now I have seen everything: 'Sasquatch' shilling for "Shoebacca"

    Have you ever seen a bigfoot and a wookie in the same room together?

    I haven't been drinking, but it is early in the morning.

    Actually, it looks to be a good resource for those of us blessed with oversized hooves

    not just length and width, but...height.

    Does anyone know who makes cycling shoes in deep toe box and wide and extended length sizes?
    I have diabetic circulation issues and need shoes with deep toe boxes as well. Does anyone know who makes custom cycling shoes or...I know it would be too good to be true, but off the shelf deep toe box shoes?
    If I find someone who does, rest assured I'll post up info immediately.Count on it.
    Does anyone know where to get the (plates?) (inserts?) that are in the soles so that a shoemaker might possibly be able to fabricate them into a regular sole shoe?
    i have more than you.
    ...because i have me and you.

    FWIW the lbs told me that Scott shoes usually run wide. I wear a 13 wide and the Scott Trail size 48 have been great.

    Do these shoes hold up? Do you ever buy them from an REI/backcountry type place with a crazy return policy? I'm a size 16/17 and busted quite a few shoes.

    If you need a wide shoe get a Sidi Mega. I wear a 14 EE normally and bought the Side Mega 50 and they're really comfortable, although not cheap. And they stopped making the cheap model ($185) so when mine wear out I'll have to throw down for the $250+ ones (the Dominator 5).

    Throwing another pair into the mix....

    I wear 13.5 to 14 sneakers. I grabbed a pair of Bontrager Race Mountains, size 49 and I'm quite happy with them. Also, not too bad on the wallet.

    should have mentioned earlier that I have a foot amputation... so I only need one custom shoe... and a big regular shoe.
    I forgot about that.
    That's a 50% discount on a custom pair of shoes!!!
    ...Now if I can get someone to sell me one shoe out of a pair for my prosthetic foot...(just got it today! Yaay! ,i'll be in business.
    ...After I learn how to walk again. HAHA!
    ...but who needs to walk when you can ride bikes?

    So true. So bike.

    I'm going to chime in. Sidi, Specialized, and Shimano. All three make wide sizes. I wear a size 11 (46), but I wear 3E-4E in tennis shoes so I know the problems.

    None of the local store here have wides. I will say try Zappos.com first. Free return shipping and you can try the shoes on, really no risk. Next thing is usually the road version and the MTB version only differ by the treads on the bottom, so if you can try on a road version, it will give you a good idea.

    The shimanos weren't comfortable to me, but a guy I ride with loves them he has like size 14
    The Sidi's felt nice, but the arch was a little to high for me ( I have really flat feet) and I was nervous for a $300 pair of cleats.
    I ended up getting Specialized pair and they work well for me.

    Years ago, I came across a pair of Carnacs at my local shop. After blowing out several pairs of cheap to not so cheap Shimano, Specialized, and other shoes, I was very impressed by the Carnacs and used them for several years. Sadly, Carnac seems to have abandoned the clyde market so my next pair will be from Sidi.

    Just wanted to say thanks for putting this out there as I was struggling to figure out which shoes come in bigger sizes. I just ordered a pair of the SH-M087G in size 50 (U.S. 14), they look perfect and people seem to be pretty happy w/ them.

    Where did you buy from and what price if you don't mind me asking?

    Got them from speedgoat.com. Worked a combo deal on these + Shimano 647 pedals so shoes effectively cost $110, free shipping, no tax.
