getting shoes / traffic tickets

Hi there, I hope it's alright to ask questions of this sort. Sorry, if not. Does anyone have any creative solutions for acquiring cheap-as-free shoes? I have big feet and haven't seen anything in local thrift stores. Here's a note on traffic tickets, in case anyone didn't know. I don't know about anywhere else, but here in Canada, if you get a traffic ticket, show up in court to fight it. You're likely guaranteed a discount just for showing up. Be polite, dressing nice will go a long way, explain how you feel it was unjustified or flat out incorrect, and you'll get a discount. At the very least they'll forgive the demerits.
