Okay, your going to be looking around a 48

Here are some at colorado cyclist that they have a 48 instock, 14's are very easy to come by, now 17's on the other hand.... anyways.,259,429&TextMode=0,259,429&TextMode=0,259,429&TextMode=0,259,429&TextMode=0

Anyways there are many more, a size 14 is common, I wear a 17, not so common, I can wear Sidis or get custom, as far as I know. Anyways good luck :)

Check out Nike,I don't know if a regular shoe store can order them or not.
Not Nike--try SpecializedAndy M-S

My experience with Nike is that they tend to run a size small. I have 13B feet, but I wear size 14 Nike shoes. OTOH, Specialized makes some nice big shoes, and you can sometimes get them cheap direct from Specialized (How cheap? How about $10/pair in large sizes?).

Their size 48 is a US14. I found this out the hard way with a pair of Pro Road a few years ago (top of the line in 2000). Just saw a pair of these on ebay last night brand new - I think the starting bid was $10. They are yellow with red straps. I liked them when I had them - wish I had kept them as the "one size too large" winter shoes.

Before anyone asks, I am NOT the one selling these shoes :)

48's are probably too smallSteve D

I wear a size 14 shoe and can't fit into a 48. I wear a Sidi size 50. If you would like to buy some used Sidi, size 49 or Northwave size 49, e-mail me at
Nashbar has some on sale right nowCory

I wear a 15/50, and it's a big problem but getting smaller--I rode in tennis shoes until I was about 40 years old, when you finally started seeing bigger shoes (cycling is pretty much a sport for midgets...).
Sidis are available up to size 52, but they're expensive--typically $180 a pair. If you check the catalogs for Bike Nashbar and Performance Bicycle Shop (formerly separate; now owned by the same company), you'll find larger shoes on sale once or twice a year. I've been pretty happy with Diadoras ($40-$60) and Northwaves. Nike also makes some, but as another poster said, they run about a size small. has cycling shoes occasionally, and you can search the Web site by size, which makes it fast. Nothing listed right now, though.
