Anyone have a Size 17/16 Throwing Shoe

Need Help:

We have an athlete at Springfield High School that wears a size 17 shoe. Thinking even a 16 might work. Problem is we can not find any anywhere. We have checked with all the shoe companies and local businesses and even colleges. Anyone know of someone who might have an old pair laying around. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

The largest size I've ever seen is 15. First to the finish, an on line store would be my guess because they gobble up old or over stock, so they have sizes no one else can sell, but again, I've never seen anything larger than a 15.

Any luck with amazon? Id recommend resorting to amazon as a last resort for obvious reasons. Other then that, maybe second sole or vertical runner? Wouldnt bet as much on those, as on ritchies, but worth a shot.

I would suggest seeing if you can find some the profession throwers on social media and ask them if they have an extra pair that big they would sell or if they know of a fellow thrower with that big of feet. My guess if you find one with that big of feet they had the same problem when younger and would do anything they could to help.
