I just got my first road bike a few months ago. I'm looking for a pair of shoes but my problem is that I have really big feet. I wear size 52 EUR. I haven't been able to find any companies that make shoes that size (or even close) I was wondering if any one knows if and where I can get some this size. Thanks
50s aren't too tough, but I only know of one company w/52sretro

I wear a 50, and if you keep your eyes open in the Nashbar and Performance catalogs, they show up on sale once or twice a year. I bought two pairs of Diadoras for about $40 apiece last time I saw them--they're fine for the way I ride these days, and should last me a few years.
52s are MUCH harder. Only company I know of that makes them is Sidi, and they're about $190 now. You can find them online at or (might be www.bikenashbar; can't remember). For once I'm glad I have such tiny feet--a bike shoe would have to have a motor in it to be worth 200 bucks to me.

i'm like the last guy-size 50-but i've noticed 52's from Lake also. they're usually cheaper
