America’s tallest man living in Rochester, Minn. gets new shoes

America’s tallest man, 30-year-old Igor Vovkivinskiy of Rochester, received a much needed pair of shoes from Reebok Thursday.


After 15 foot surgeries in the past few years, Vovkivinskiy was in a desperate need of custom-made shoes. Reebok told him it would cost $15,000 to make him a pair that would fit. Before the surgeries, Vovkivinskiy wore a size 26.

Twin Cities-based Palidium, Inc. was also making shoes for Vovkivinskiy.
