    I have a young student he's only 15 but 6'5" and wears a 16 shoe! It seems most sneakers have those high heels and wide bases, and even worse, those manmade soles (no grip) and lots of fabric out there as well (no support) Some of the kids use indoor soccer shoes with success, but alas, they stop at 14. We've looked in a number of places and everything that's a possibility seems to stop at 14; maybe I'm missing some brand. Has anyone had experience with finding decent shoes in sizes like this? Thanks....

    Yeah....we had to go New Balance for my 6'9" sabre guy because he wore a 17W and no actual fencing show went beyond a 16.

    Fenceart....what weapon?
