    Posted: Jan/06/2011 at 8:07pm
I really enjoy snowboarding and I want my buddy to experience the joy but there is one problem. He is huge! He wears a size 18 shoe and I have never seen boots in that size. Does anyone know if you can get them in that size or if there is a website where you can have them make em that big or anything?

Haha wow, it's like Shaq on a snowboard.
 
Forget the boots, where the hell do you get a snowboard wide enough for size 18 boots??
 
I guess he'd have to do go 15 degree duck stance to have any chance

Yea boots would only be half of the problem, you also have to get bindings and a board that will support those boats.  As someone said Ride does make larger boots but I'm not sure about the bindings.  How tall is he and how much does he weigh?

You can get a wide board duck stance with binding elevators?

If ride makes boots for size 16-22.....do they also make bindings for that size? Cuz otherwise the boots would be useless.

Ride caps out at size 15 on their bindings (as do most other manufacturers), While I don't normally advocate for Technine Bindings, they do have a XXL binding that caps out at a size 18. Given the limits of your buddy's sizing, could be worth looking into.

An Iowa football player, eh?  Definitely put him on the mountain with some sketchy equipment.  If he suffers an injury it can only help U-M next year...  just kidding, don't start a flame war.

Holy cow! More importantly, how wide does the board have to be to accommodate those big feet? Definitely need risers!!!

Damn, I thought I had problems with size 13 (US) feet! Stores rarely stock anything in my size unless it's four seasons old and the whackest colourway possible

Holy SHIET! It would be quite a sight to see your bud going down the slopes! And yeah, Ride did make those 16-22 boots. Anyways, you might need a 2 meter board for him XD
