24 Nov. 2011: Teenager Carl Griffiths may have the biggest feet in Britain, but he’s taking it in his stride.
The 19-year-old, who stands at 6ft 8in, has size 21 feet - a staggering 14.5in long and more than twice the length of the average UK men’s size nine.

Unsurprisingly, he regularly has to put up with people accidentally standing on them and struggles to find shoes that fit so has to order them from overseas.

Mr Griffiths, from Trimsaram in south Wales said: ‘My feet have always been huge - ever since I can remember’.
‘They grew so fast when I was at school my mum kept having to buy me new shoes every few months. Each year I would go through two or three pairs. I just wore them out really quickly’.

‘At primary school my feet were always two sizes bigger than anyone else’s.
‘By the time I was 12 years old they were size 14. Then in the space of two years they had gone up to size 17. I play rugby and had a huge struggle finding rugby boots - I had to get them special ordered from America.’

Mr Griffiths stands at 6ft8in tall, just two inches shorter than beanpole England footballer Peter Crouch. But his feet are nine sizes bigger than striker Crouch’s size 12s. This means that the unemployed welder’s footwear options are limited - and expensive.

He said: ‘They don’t make size 21 shoes anywhere in the UK. They cost about £50 to have made but because the boxes they come in are quite big it costs another £50 to have them mailed back here’.
