    Huge feet, clipless pedals n shoes???

    I' wear size 15, 4E...they're wicked wide. I have a hard time finding regular shoes, so I figured that finding MTB shoes and clipless pedals would be impossible. Before I give up on that, I thought I 'd ask in here if anyone has big feet but still wear MTB shoes.

    Anyone?
    If so, what do you wear and where did you find them?


    Thanks!

    SIDI, Specialized & Shimano have shoe at least as big as size 50, which translates to around 14-1/2-15 US.

    Yeah. I had a pair of Shimanos that were size 50 and they were actually a little big for me. I really need a 49. I wear a 14.

    I wear a size 15 shoe. I had to use a Shimano 51 to fit my foot. If you look at Shimano's size chart, I think a 51 is a 15.

    My feet are extra wide, regular width size 15s will never fit my feet. I ordered the Shimano M087 today and they should be here in a couple of days. I ordered size 52 and I'm crossing my fingers!

    I am a 14 and am still wearing the same pair of Cannondales that I bought 12 years ago. It is hard to find gear for bigger guys.

    I'm size 15 and very wide, or a euro 50 Wide. Had size 50 Sidi Dominators for years and wore them out.

    I just got a pair of Shimano M087's yesterday in size 51 Wide. Took them for a quick ride and They fit perfectly. Ordered them on teh internet so couldn't try on beforehand either, glad I went a size up like everyone says to do.

    I just got a pair of 48's MTN sport from Specialized, based on what I have seen on the shoe box that is a 14.5 US size. If I keep my toe nails cut they fit. My big toe is real close to the end of the shoe. I got them for $50 at the LBS cuz they said that they will never sell them anyway. Std SPD and they work great.

    It's different for every manufacturer. I wear a 14EE...SIDI Dominators in a 49 (not the megas) fit well.

    When I run flats, I have a real problem. FiveTen makes a few models in a 14, but they seem to run small, and the size 15's are too big. I purchased Teva's, but I'm night a an of the sole so I ordered replacement FiveTen soles, ground down the Teva's and had the FiveTen soles put on.

    For clipless, I believe there are a number of custom shoe manufacturers.

    I'm awaiting a warranty return for my M087G's from pricepoint. The rubber tread ripped and separated from the sole after about 4 months. We have a lot of rocks her in KC though so trails are tough on shoes. Looking around I see that Shimano has an updated version the M088L which come in normal and wide sizes up to 52. They also have another shoe, XC50N that goes up to a size 52, no wide though as far as I can tell. Not sure what shoe I'm gonna go with this time around. I had a pair of Sidi Dominators that lasted for about 2 years but then the sole started to separate from the upper at the toe. Also didn't like the plastic tread which made hike a bike's sketchy in the rocks.

    I wear a 16 EEEE shoe regularly and I own the Sidi Dominator 5 in 52. The straps make it fairly versatile as far as width is concerned. You want a tight fit anyway so you can crank down on the cams to get that fit. I am using Shimano PD-M324 pedals with the half platform half clipless design. That way I can still ride with other shoes if needed.
