I hate buying shoes on line unless I've tried them on first. You never know for sure what they feel like. But then I am picky about my shoes - comes from having worked in a shoe store for 4 years.Originally posted by: TallBill
Zappos.com I wear a size 14/15 as well. They have everything on that website. Not so lucky when I was your age.
Well, I've worn the same pair of Dr. Martins for the last 7 years, so I don't worry much about trying on shoes. Same sandals too for probably the last 5-6. As far as athletic shoes go, nobody carries my size so I haven't test drove a pair of shoes before buying since middle school.Originally posted by: Exterous
I wear 14 as well and it is a pain in the ass. Most store stop carrying any decent stock after size 12 or 13. Also, shoes that look good in size 9 tend to look a lot different in 14. Best bet is a place like DSW (a big, open store with almost all their stock on the floor.) Its a lot easier to browse these stores when you don't have to keep asking "Do you have these in size 14?"
If you can't find a store like this then go browsing and browsing and browsing. My wife actually hates going shoe shopping with me. Imagine that! When you find a pair you like in your size, buy 2 pairs - or buy their one size 14 and ask to special order another one

Well you're clearly not a nerd. Any self respecting nerd would be smart enough to figure out where to buy big shoes.
hint: you might need to head over to the nearest circus.
