    A man from Venezuela has the largest feet in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

    The 20-year-old Jeison Orlando Rodríguez Hernandez has feet measuring nearly 16 inches and wears size 26 shoes. He is over 7 feet tall.

    Rodríguez Hernandez gets his shoes custom made by a German shoemaker, but used to have them made of cloth or would walk barefoot, NBC News reported. 

    In an interview with NowThis, he spoke of being bullied for his shoe size.

    Medical scans determined that an overactive pituitary caused the excessive growth.
