    DH shoes for big feet

    I wear a size 14 shoe and was wondering if any other DHrs have big feet and what is available. I see the 5 10s only run to 13. I have been running clipless pedals for the last few years and really feel it is holding me back and time for a change.

    Any opinions?

    just grab some cheap (40 bucks) nike hightop basketball shoes like the flights....they grip good, give ankle support and protection......BEWARE of the PLASTIC arch in the middle of shoe.....don't buy those

    your set to go....look at the thread pattern in these

    I heard that fiveten is now making the impact (the original one) in a size 14.
    For myself though I've been wearing size 14 Oakley SI Assault shoes for the last 3 years.
    I find that these are the best that I've used to date (I haven't worn the fivetens yet) flat botton with a good lowprofile tread that doesn't slip in the muck like a skate shoe will.

    Five Tens are the only way to roll!

    I wear a 15 and have for years been wearing Vans. Five Ten makes the Impacts in 14 which I can squeeze into. The difference is amazing!

    Picked mine up at Price Point. They have them in stock!

    I wear sz 14 shoes and the 5.10 high-tops in 13 fit just fine for riding. After a month of pushing the dh sleigh up the hills the shoes stretched to fit quite comfortably.
