Two of them, displayed in a shoe store, a size 37AA and 35AA. Robert Wadlow was the World's Tallest Man, so maybe he wore the 35AA while he was still growing.

Amazingly, my kids got to hold another of Robert's shoes that they had in the back. It was the same size as their baby sister!

Robert Wadlow Shoes

The size 37 shoe is in the big glass case, along with a memorial card from Robert's funeral. The other shoe is displayed underneath the modern cash register. I specify this because they also have an antique register near the entrance.

Wadlow's giant shoes. Robert Wadlow Shoes

Well worth a stop to see giant shoes, plus a very nice full service shoe store. Cuba is a picturesque Route 66 town with historic murals on many of the buildings.

Robert Wadlow Shoes

There are two Robert Wadlow shoes at Hayes Shoe Store in Cuba, MO. One is a size 35 and one is a size 37. The outside of the shoe store is also covered by one large mural of what the corner looked like in the early 1900s.
