Does anyone have any reliable offshore shops that supply size 15+ shoes? Or local if there are any with a good range.
Ive got a teenager who is too big for his boots.....

Depends what sort of shoes. If its sports/trainers/walking and not business shoes, then new balance does a good range of big shoes with variable widths available.
They are online and have factory stores.

If you are fairly confident about what you need, then I've bought things from 6pm.com before, they have a huge amount of stuff.

Amazon seem to have US size 15 and 16, you can filter by shoe size and check the "Ships to New Zealand" box to get shoes in the required size that will ship internationally (usually direct from Amazon). Shipping isn't too expensive either, although with the NZ dollar down it's not as good value as it used to be. Watch out for the import tax threshold (www.whatsmyduty.org.nz) as the 10% import duty on shoes brings the current tax-free threshold down to around $NZ220 including shipping.

www.shoesonline.com were very good when I needed some Doc's work shoes that I couldn't get here.

They seem to have large sizes.




I know a little more than nothing but not much...

My son has size 15 feet.  We've successfully used bigshoes.com shipped via youshop in the last couple of months.  I think they will ship international directly as well (except for brands with their own restrictions, like Asics), youshop was worked out slightly cheaper.  Freight cost came to about $33 per pair using some discount codes.

I share your frustration in not just being able to walk into a shoe store and be able to buy a pair.

Yes, especially when you see the default shipping is almost $100 for some stores from the US.......
