    size 15 shoe for flat pedals?

    Size 15 US, wide if possible. Something similar to a 5.10 shoe. Im riding with a pair of new balances that dont grip all that well, plus the laces flop all over the place. i appreciate any help.
    Hey Ma! Look at this laceration.

    I wear a 15EE in Nike, Reebok, etc...

    I'm wearing a pair of DVS Endoro Heir's in 14 and they fit surprisingly well with good grip on flats. My only issue is they don't vent that well.

    See if you can try on a pair of these in 14.

    I usually wear 14s but these run big. At least they did a year or so ago when I got them.

    I also recently switched to HT flats and they are incredibly grippy.

    Good luck!

    Also size 15, looking for good shoes. Thanks for the info copsey. I'll look into those DVS.

    As for floppy laces, just bunch them up and tuck them under one of the crossed laces (so they point down to your toes). Looks goofy but there's no chance of them ending up in your drive train.

    I am also a 15. I have been in the market for mountain bike flat pedal shoes. I have an older pair of nike skate shoes that have been serving me well for now. However, I would love something more resistant to mud and water like the Teva links. Its such a tease that they only make those up to a 14.

    I've been having a really hard time finding shoes that fit since the sizing charts all differ. Couple this with manufacturers who "run small" or "run big" it's hard to tell exactly what size to buy. Unfortunately, I can't afford to buy multiple sizes and sell off the unwanted ones.

    I'm also a 15. I wear a pair of Nike 6.0 skate/bmx shoes. They seem to run wide and are flat bottomed. They work great with my platform pedals.

    ... and I always though that I was having problem finding shoes with my 14...

    question: is there any shoes that protect the heel? (other than the gigantic basketball shoes)

    If you ride platforms and do not clip in try hightop Vans. They are great and come in big boy sizes.
