  Don't think you'll fit ...

or if you do you won't be comfortable. From their website:

"The Walden Vista delivers better performance than other kayaks in this category. A lower foredeck and standard kneepads gives added control with a snug fit."

You probably won't be able to fit in while wearing any footware, expect maybe neoprene socks.

At your size (especially shoe size) you will be better off sitting in several boats at a local shop to get and idea of what models will work for you. If you then want to look for a less expensive boat ask the dealer if they have anything that was traded in or was from their rental/demo fleet that might fit you. Your time will be better spent by starting this way. Once you have experience in a variety of kayaks it will be much easier for you to judge what may work for you in the used boat market.
