Ok so I know I have big ish feet a 47 in my workboots. But I never thought it would be soo hard to get a pair of road shoes to fit. Having limited bike shops with limited stock here on the sunshine coast australia does not help as most shops dont want to get get big sizes in for me to try because they may be left with them on the shelf if i dont buy and i dont think crusty the clown is into cycling yet.
Ok so here is the question: I managed to try a 48 in shimano R087( slightly too tight lengthways) but a 49 is way too big ( for even my monsters)
My quest for a road shoe you can walk on is over! I've been looking for a pair of comfortable and stiff - in short, performance - cycling shoes in the what manufacturers would call MTB class.
Decathlon’s R700 are ideal for wallet conscious racers or those looking for a high performance training shoes. Compared with the latest generation of shoes dripping in carbon composites, they seem technologically modest with their mesh and faux leather uppers but this is largely forgotten aboard the bike, where the performance outstrips the price.
