Right, so I'm 17 and 6'7 tall, with size 15 feet... I've always had trouble getting shoes to fit but have managed to scrape by with only finding a single style size 15 astros off a website called walktall.co.uk, and they don't stock them atm. But my trainers are about to split all the way down and the hockey season is about to start... Anyone know where I can get any BIG astros from, I don't care what they look like, its not like I can really choose anyway.

Cheers any help would really be appreciated.

I found this site:http://www.bigshoes.com/?scode=s1001...FQXklAodlD6pSA

And did a search for astro....it came up with this: [EDIT, changed link]: http://www.bigshoes.com/style_detail...6&color_id=282

Which will be about £40 or so (plus whatever shipping is).

Although the site below says tallGIRLS, I can assure you that theres a mens section with sports shoes [amongst others] to size 16!! The girls section is amazing [Im a size 10 shoe...gulp] so the guys bit probably is too?!

Have you tried places like 'high and mighty'?

America has a lot of those shops for big (normally a bit overweight) people, you could try google and then importing it, the only prob is that they may take a few weeks to arrive.

high and mighty have a shop near Harrods, so they have a UK shop which you might be able to order from.

Hey thanks for the help guys!! I'm surprised how willing you all were to actually help me find some I'm feeling charitable too, I might donate my old ones to be used as canoes to keep up with the helpful spree we've got going on lol! But yeah thanks again everyone.

i'm a girl and my feet are size 12 (I'm 6ft2) so I feel your pain OP. My elder brother is 6'8 and has size 15 feet - he joined The Tall Persons club of GB who send him information on where to buy shoes and loads of other stuff for tall people.
I'll ask him tomorrow where else he gets shoes from, although I think high and mighty is a good bet! I'll send you a PM when I find out from him!

If there's a Sports World outlet nearby, you could try them. I found some 13s there and I'm sure I also saw 14s and 15s. You can try them on of course, with it being an actual shop.
