Brahim Takioullah is a Moroccan man born on January 26, 1982, in Guelmim, Morocco. Known for holding the Guinness World Record for the largest feet, he is officially recognized as the second-tallest living person, standing at a height of 8 feet 0.97 inches. Takioullah was diagnosed with acromegaly at the age of 18, experiencing a rapid 3.3-foot growth spurt in a single year. After earning a degree in geography, he underwent successful treatment in Paris in 2006, where a tumor was removed, and his growth hormone levels returned to normal.
Despite challenges in finding shoes that fit (European size 58), Takioullah received specially made shoes from his orthopedic podiatrist to support his weight. He works at an attraction park near Beauvais, France, and has obtained French nationality. Takioullah surpassed Sultan Kösen as the Guinness World Record holder for the world’s largest feet on a living person on May 24, 2011, with measurements of 15 inches (left foot) and 14.76 inches (right foot).
With a height of 8 feet 1 inch, Brahim Takioullah is the second-tallest living person globally, following Sultan Kösen of Turkey and tying with Morteza Mehrzad of Iran, according to the Guinness World Records. Despite official measurements, some members of TheTallestMan.com express doubts about his actual height, suggesting he may appear 3 to 5 inches shorter than claimed. Takioullah splits his time between Paris and Morocco.
