What kind of riding do you do Philip?   I don't like clip-ins either.  For road riding away from town, I use Sidi bike shoes with old-fashioned cleats on conventional pedals with loosely-adjusted straps, which provide just a suggestive feeling of containment.

In-town I just ride street shoes with platform pedals.   Either way, both are easy to exit...and never that 'trapped' feeling when coming to a stop.  And very inexpensive; my Sidis are 20-years old!

I used non-clip Chrome brand shoes for a long time. Obviously, the footbed needs to work for you, but their waterproof, non-clip work boots lasted a long time (2 years) and I rode every day during that time.

Thanks for the info.  Now I need to do some investigation on my part to find the shoes in size 14.

When I'm not riding SPDs, I've long preferred whatever shoes I feel like wearing, on (preferably pinned) BMX pedals. The large platform is friendly to everything, even my beloved boat shoes. 

Maybe I mis-stated my question.  I thought when I said "clip-less" I was referring to shoes that were not attached to the pedals.  I have a pair of shoes now (Bontrager) that do attach to the pedals.  I’m looking for shoes that are not attached at all. 

Any suggestions?
