(WHAS11) -- A local cobbler says the shoes he made for a man who is 7 feet 9 inches tall were a success.
Alan Kleinman of Louisville made the shoes for a man named Igor who lives in Minnesota. Kleinman traveled to Minnesota to hand deliver the shoes.
Igor was thrilled with the fit and comfort and says for the first time in years he was able to walk the mall and walk his dog.
Igor has had numerous problems with his feet and shoes over the years.
The custom shoes are a size 25 for the country's tallest man.
