I would suggest you stroll around Itaewon, as that is where (most likely anyways) you will be able to find shoes that big, since most of Itaewon is geared towards selling stuff to American G.I.s.

For those in Gyeongnam, go to Texas St in Busan. As you walk along from the Busan Station end, towards the Nampodong end, at one of the intersections of the small side streets, there is a shoe shop on the left corner of the Nampodong side of the intersection. The owners speak Korean and Russian, but little to no English. I take size 300, and they always have them in stock. You won't always have such a good choice of styles, but there'll be something that fits, at least.

Hi,

   A New Balance store just opened in Co-Ex Mall since a lot of foreigners go there.  I can't guarantee that they would have your size but you might try.

I was trying to buy football boots (cleets) but found it difficult. Eventually an adidas store in myeong dong said they would order them in for me, no extra charge, takes about 3-4 days to get to the store. they were really helpful. from talking to other people it seems to be the only way to get large size's over here.

When I went to seoul for a size 15 shoe, the price I would have had to pay was 200,000 won for a bad pair.  I order mine from the states.

Hey there,

Was recently shopping with my friend for men's size 13 shoes and we went to Itaewon. There is a large brand name shoe store a short walk down the street from the Burger king heading towards Hamilton Shopping Centre which carries nike's in size 13. They were only 110KW which was reasonable considering they were rather nice shoes and in a size so uncommon here in Korea. Don't remember the name of the store, but it's hard to miss if you're walking down that street. Good luck :)

It seems like I've seen a few styles with sizes up to like 310 in ABC Marts... that'd be like a... 13?  Not positive though since I'm only an 11.  Also I was shopping for volleyball shoes awhile back and had to go to Asics/Mizuno specific stores to find them.  In volleyball shoes, they stocked a couple styles up to like 340.

Point is - try an Asics or Mizuno store.

I personally have had more luck ordering stuff online via English shopping websites. At least you can get some idea of the quality and the right fit. But the choice is yours.

I am an avid New Balance wearer and also wear 13.  I've checked the local new balance stores and they always laugh and say I have giant's feet.  So I resorted to buying from online sources.  Shoebuy.com used to have great selections on running shoes, offers that included discounts that would cover the shipping costs here, and often delivered in about a week.  Might want to look there. I ordered off of Gmarket once, and they just ordered from a different place back in the States.  Hence, it took forever and was expensive.  :p
