    I'm 18, a freshman in college, and 6'8". My dad is only 5'8" so I'm a full foot taller than him. I know I'm still growing because when I graduated high school I was only 6'7". When I came home for winter break I was 6'8'.

    I also have two older brothers. When they each left for college they were only 5'7" and shorter than our dad. In college they have grown so one is 5'10" and the other is 5'9". While they're taller than our dad, they aren't going to get anywhere near my height.

    Is anyone else a giant compared to their dad and/or brothers like me?

    I'm shorter than my dad unfortunately. I find the younger children always grow taller. It's fascinating.

    I would not say I'm a giant compared to my Dad & brothers, but I'm certainly bigger. They are about 5'7"-5'8" and i'm 6'1". My brothers used to be really skinny, only weighing about 130 when they graduated from high school. I weighed about the same as they did when I was 12. By the time I graduated from high school I was 230.

    That's awesome. You and your son can share each other's shoes and mix 'n' match.
    Where do you get your shoes from? Speaking from a size 21UK myself (22US).

    Always online - I've got some from a couple of places in the UK - Magnus shoes, and randomly some from a company called Premier Man / got some trainers for £24.99! Couldn't believe my luck ! Never found any other size 19's on their website though - what about you ?

    Looks like we're becoming a nation of Giants in the U.K. - there's another kid in Suffolk who's 15 years old, 6'11.5" and still growing - and his Dad is the same height as me - I wonder if my son has some competition !?!

    Bigshoes.com, eastbay.com, and eBay. It's really hard to find shoes in my size. I'm pretty much a basketball sneaker guy for the rest of my life. Once you get over size 20 us (19uk), there is very little choice. If you find something, message me.
