Growth Spurt in Mid-20s? BIGGER FEET

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 05, 2012 at 1:47 AM

So I am 25 years old and my feet have decided to grow another 1/2 inch. Is it implausible or uncommon for someone my age to keep growing? I am 6 feet tall 178 pounds already. I had stopped growing...

Or maybe I'm releasing more HGH from fasting and the timing of my workouts/meals?

Since hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and wearing minimalist/wide shoes, my feet have grown quite a bit and I'm 47 years old. Right now I'm wearing a pair of sandals I bought in the early 1990s (would have been in my 20s then) and had buried in the closet. The imprint from my feet back then are still there. My toes are almost over the front edge of the sandals and no longer within the imprint of my own 1990s feet.

Have you started wearing minimalist footwear? I wonder if your feet have just changed shape as they perhaps are no longer being squeezed into conventioanl shoes?!

I guess it's not impossible.

When I began my journey towards recovering from an eating disorder, I heard many stories of people in their '20s that grew a few inches during recovery because they were malnourished throughout their teen years. I don't know if this has been scientifically proven though.
Being 5'3", I was hoping this would happen to me too. I'm 22 so maybe there's still hope for me!

I did grow 1 full inch after dropping vegetarianism! Also, working in kitchens and standing aaallll daaaaaay with minimalist shoes has made my feet considerably, noticeably wider. So it could be a lifestyle thing too!
