BIG mt bike shoes?

Hi, I haven been looking online and in stores for mountain bike shoes for my huge feet. I normally
wear 15-16 depending on the brand and type of the shoe.

Today I tried on a pair of 48 shoes (can't remember make and model) and another pair of size 14 US.
I could put both on but they weren't very comfortable. No pain but nice and tight.

Anybody have a good source for size 15 or 50-52 shoes?

PS. I don't really want to spend a fortune - under 100 bucks would be OK.

Thanks in advance for any assitance!

Mike

SIDI. http://www.sidiusa.com/mtbs/index.html

I have the same problem. There are a few other brands and models but I stick with the good old
reliable SIDI's now (paid $189). SIDI does have some less expensive models but I've no experience
with them.

Some cheaper ones would be some of the Shimano shoes (paid $99) and North Wave shoes (paid $89). I
used to have a pair of each (I don't remember exactly which). The Shimano's held up well for a
couple years but never fit quite right. The North Wave shoes were really nice for about 2 months,
then they fell apart. I still have the Shimano shoes but never wear them. They just don't compare to
my SIDI Dominator 4's, size 49. (I wear US 14 or 15, depending on the shoe.) They've held up well
for 2 years now, through recreational/training riding (600+ annual hours), a season of XC racing (16
races) and a season of CX racing (9 races).

They've been put through some hell. ;-) http://www.abbiorca.com/bike/cross/cross2003/surfcity-finals-12-7-

I wear a 52 or size 15. SIDI is the only brand I found that makes Mtn Bike. The good part is that it
is the most popular model and a very good shoe. I got mine at a local shop that had it in stock.
Most likely you will have to special order. Shop around, I found prices vary.

Thanks, guys...I have been searching a little more on the Internet and Sidi
looks like one of the few who make big shoes...but I have found a couple of
shoes by Lake in those sizes also. If I end up getting something I will
follow up with the info. :)

Wow, that is huge. I've often heard women comment that there is a direct correlation between a man's
shoe size and how well endowed he is. Congratulations.

Two models are under $100!

Sometimes stereotypes develop cuz they are true! Even if it's not true, my email Inbox is filled
with lots of offers to enlarge this or that body part... ;)

Thanks, Dave...I ordered the Lake MX101 in size 50, which Lake correlates to size 15 US. Hopefully
they will do the trick!

Mike, You should see the current issue of Bicycling. It shows a gigantic mtn bike frame that was
specifically made for Shaquille O'Neal(sp?). It's something to see!

Sidi makes a size 50. In fact I have a pair that are too big for me. Email me if you're interested.
