    Large size MTB Shoes

    Please offer your suggestions. I have a US size 14 foot. In most cases this translates into a size 48. But when I try on those sizes they're always too snug. I've been unable so far to find MTB shoes in size 49 or larger. What mfgrs. make good, shoes that are reasonably priced? For that matter at any price.

    Try Diadora shoes they come in larger sizes.

    Sidi Dominators go up to size 52, and you can get the Dominator Mega if you have a wide foot. They're not cheap (they retail for $210), but they're great shoes.

    I also have a large foot 14/15 US. I have had Specialized and Sidi's. Sidi's are hands down the most comfortable shoes ever. They are expensive, but the trick is to go to a local shop and try them on to figure out the best size. Then preferably buy them from the LBS; however, if that is still too pricey look for them brand new off of ebay. I have seen them going for $120 in the past few days.

    Specialized

    I wear a size 14 also. Tried Sidi Dominators (euro 49), too narrow - didn't try the mega's though. I have the specialized Pro Mountains in size 48. Sure fits like a size 14. No complaints and a solid shoe. I have been riding with specialized shoes for about 4 years. Seem to hold up well.

    I wear a 13/14 and have had Nike, Northwave, and Specialized. The Spec'd are the best ones so far. They were the high-end models (although I didn't pay retail) though as compared to the others which were lower-cost options. The first set have the Body-Geometry insoles which felt wierd at first (high arch) but actally felt good after I got used to them. The second pair is the team model and doesn't have the BG insole and my feet aren't as comfortable.

    Sidi Dominator 4

    I just saw an add in Bike Nashbar for Sidi Dominator 4's sizes 48,49,51,52 for $135. Catalog #191 page 11. I thought this might be interesting to some of my fellow Bigfoot...or is it Bigfeet???
