size 13 Oly shoe / crossfit shoe

im looking to get some new shoes and i really like the nano and the oly from reebok, but they dont make them in anything bigger then an 11... what are some other good shoes to look at that have larger sizes? right now i do all my heavy lifting bare foot and wear some nike running shoes for everything else. do most people have a shoe for liftig and a diffrent shoe for everything else? or a good all around shoe?

They at least make them in a size 12 (and I am pretty sure up to 14). Right now they are just sold out of your size.

YES, get separate shoes for general crossfitting and olympic lifting.

New Balance Minimus MT20 (my personal favorite general CF shoe) or MX20 are popular.
Inov8 f-lite 230 is another one. Both of those come in a size 13 at Running Warehouse. (WFS). one of the best and cheapest places I have found to get shoes. Oly shoes, try Risto (WFS), contact them and they custom make Oly shoes.

ah ok, when my wife called they made it sound like they didnt make them but would soon, but maybe they where confused and just meant that they where out of stock and would have some more soon.

As a fellow size 13 who has a hard time finding shoes I hereby deem you thread-worthy.

Re: size 13 Oly shoe / crossfit shoe

Of course the sizing question is justified, I was more referring to the part asking about "different shoes for lifts and other stuff". Either way I am only a measly size 12, so my vote doesn't count here.
