That's my plan, I'm going go to Dicks or some other sporting goods store and try some out before I buy. The biggest problem is that in some shoes I wear a 14, which is often hard to find at brick-and-mortar stores.
Amen my large hoofed friend! I wear a 14 as well, 15 in Nike's. New Balance seem to fit me best, seems like most of my larger friends find NB to be the most comfortable.
