Good all around shoe for a fairly large foot?

About 2 years ago I started climbing, and thanks to a high school class I was able to go to places like Pilot Mountain and climb, but there was always one problem...The size of my foot, in a regular shoe I wear a size 15. No matter where I go, I simply can't seem to find a shoe that I can fit in. The 14's that most places carry I can stand for about 2 climbs, and then the pain from my toes curling is simply too much to take. I've never seen a size 14 1/2 so I have no idea how they would fit, but I assume that I need a size 15.

I usually do both on the rock and indoor rock climbing, so I would need a decent all-around shoe. As far as prices, I would like to stay under $80 but given the circumstance I would understand why that may be hard to do. I'm not really looking for some "Expert, be the best ever" shoe, I simply need a comfortable rock climbing shoe that I can enjoy climbing in.

thanks for any advice :)
