  Largest feet: Peter Iroga sets world record (Video)

SYDNEY, Australia -- Solomon Islands native Peter Iroga stands at a towering 7'3" (2.23m) tall and one of his feet measures 38cm and another 37.5cm - setting the new world record for the Largest feet .

  The Guinness world record for the largest feet belongs to Sultan Kosen from Turkey - who has a 36.5cm left foot and a 35.5cm right foot.

Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most people washing their feet: 568, achieved by Parents and Teachers Appreciation Association (Taiwan).

  Mr Iroga's large physique is due to an abnormality of the pituitary gland in his brain, causing continual growth of his body.

  Later this month he will have an operation to remove a brain tumour stemming from the abnormal gland which he hopes will stop his growth.

Peter Iroga has been in Australia receiving medical treatment for various difficulties associated with his larger-than-life physique, reports The Manly Daily.

  A Dee Why orthotics shop stepped in to create customised U.S 22.5 (40cm) medical shoes with orthotics for Mr Iroga - only the second pair he has owned in his life.

  "I'm very happy," Mr Iroga said when he first received his new shoes from Foot Power . "I was starting to think it was impossible to get shoes for my size.

  "While I was studying in Fiji a few years ago I ordered the biggest possible basketball shoes from America over the internet but even then they were still uncomfortable."
