    Shoe options - size 15

    5-10 and Teva only go up to 14. I found DC Court Graffiks and DC Pures in size 15. Would either DC shoe be good for mountain biking?

    Any other suggestions?

    Nobody else has huge feet? Maybe I should have posted this in the Clydesdale forum...

    I wear a 14 and have an old pair of Specialized shoes that work pretty well. I was thnking of checking out the 5 10, but assumed they wouldn't be available.

    SIDI Dominator comes in size 51 and 52. That's your best bet. There's also the Shimano M086.

    Are you a definite 15 or can you go down to a 14 in some brands?
    I'm a 13EE sometimes a 14 depending on the brand and particular shoe.
    I'm loving the Teva Links right now. I got the 13's and wasn't sure the toebox would be comfortable, but I've put some miles on them for the past 2 months or so and I'm sold on them.
    Try to find an outfit that has the best return policy and order some shoes to try them out at home.
    Pearl Izumi has these in 49... Pearl Izumi X-Road Mountain Bike Shoe (just google them)

    I'm typically a size 15. Most of my shoes are 15, but I have a pair of Shimano clipless MTB shoes in size 52 (which translates to 16), a pair of Sketchers in size 14, and Burton snowboard boots in size 16. It really just depends on the manufacturer.

    Thanks for the heads up on the SIDI shoes, Tunica, but I should have stated that I'm looking for non-clipless (clipless-less?) shoes.

    I don't anticipate you having too much luck. Instead I would go for the second best option.

    step 1) find some comfy skates

    step 2) get them resoled with 5.10 rubber

    step 3) get some fiberglass or carbon fiber mesh sheets, get some resin and 2 gallon ziploc bags, cut the sheets to match the outline of the insole, put some resin on seal it into the bag slide into shoe, put the insole on above it and ride around the block a few times leave it over night then either pull off the ziploc bag or cut it away. do for both shoes.

    Now you have the next best thing to full on mtb shoes

    Note: I got the idea from someone else on these forums and fail to remember his name...

    Skate shoes.
    All my Vans become riding shoes after a certain level of filthiness.

    I'm a US 16.

    For SPD shoes it's Sidi, or Sidi, or maybe even Sidi. Plus side is the quality of their shoes isexcellent, just try them on first, the italians have funny ideas what shape a 'wide' sole should be.


    Flat pedal shoes.

    I use Vans (Skink Mid) resoled with Stealth rubber, all the benefits of FiceTen's wonder stuff, but in a shoe that's comfortable. I've found normal skate shoes great until it gets wet, then they try to kill you, the resole solves that.
