UPDATE:

Congrats to Igor Vovkivinskiy and everyone that helped – Igor seems to have gotten his 16k for his shoes…and more!  I’d urge anyone that still wants to help, to donate anyway! Maybe he can get enough money to put aside for another pair of shoes in the future!  So far he has raised $20,335.00 – Good Stuff!

How can you help?

Long story short – America’s tallest man,  Igor Vovkivinskiy, is in need of a new pair of shoes.  From being 7′ 8″ tall and from having multiple foot surgeries – Igor’s feet require an expensive shoe!  His current pair have basically come to their end and he is struggling to do normal day activities – he’s partially using a wheel-chair to get around because of the pain and lack of support.  Igor has tried contacting multiple shoe manufacturers, but has only heard back from Reebok – in which they estimated the total cost to be about $15,000.  Yeah – i didn’t accidentally add two extra zeros.
