Angry Track hope about to die!!

I need some help. I wanna do track, been wanting this for years however ai have something "big" going against me...my shoe size. I wear a size 16 US which translates to a size 51.5 or 52 European I think. I have been searching for boots for quite some time to fit my size and have come up obviously short. Does anyone know of a pair of racing boots that come in large sizes or of a company that is willing to custom order? Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is like my last resort before I say forget my dreams of the track. Thanks.

I'm sure if you email sidi or aplinestar they would make one for a price. I'd be really disappointed if they wouldn't.

That would REALLY suck if that's the one thing that kept you from going to the track man. i'll also look around and see what i can find out there. i'm sure someone has to make some boots for your big feet!!! oxtar,astar,sidi,gaerne, someone has to make them i would think?!

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.

Have you tried Daytona Boots? They make custom boots.

Pazzo Levers, Powerbronze DB screen, and matching seat, MiVV GP can.

Have you checked with the site sponsers like Riders Discount, they are always posting up boots, and even if they dont have any of your size in stock they may be able to point you in the right direction.

If you can't fnd a high-tech, top notch boot, why not just get a touring boot? If you're not dragging a knee or scraping a pinky toe yet, what would be the difference? I'm sure the more popular brand have those in bigger sizes. G/L
