Texas Grabbed Two Guinness Records for ‘Longest Feet’ and ‘Largest Book’ -Wonder Why Everything’s Bigger in Texas
It’s happy news for all Texans that Texas has owned two Guinness records.

To put out “I Am Texas,” the group collaborated with the Bryan Museum in Galveston. According to KHOU, the book is 7 feet tall, 11 feet wide, and weighs 496 pounds because it was made using the stories and artwork of over a thousand children. I’d need three days to read only one page.
According to the writer’s Facebook page, the previous record was set in Brazil in 2007 and took two years to make. It will be shown in San Antonio’s Museum of Art and Galveston’s Bryan Museum.
The world’s largest foot belongs to a woman who wears a size 18
Another Guiness record is about the ‘feet’ of a woman. The world’s largest foot belongs to a woman who wears a size 18. It’s necessary to order custom shoes because of the size of her feet.
Last month, Guinness World Records officially recognized 39-year-old Tanya Herbert as the owner of the enormous feet ever seen on a living human (female). Her right foot is 33.1 centimeters (13.1 inches) long, while her left foot is 32.5 centimeters (12.79 inches), making her shoe size a US women’s size 18.
“The most challenging part of having wide feet is trying to find shoes that fit.”-Tanya says
Tanya also stands at 6 ft 9 inches tall – only three inches shorter than the tallest woman in Turkey, Rumeysa Golgi, who is 7 ft 0.7 inches tall. Tanya, from Houston, Texas, said: “The most challenging part of having wide feet is trying to find shoes that fit.’
Tanya said: “My mum was 6 ft 5 in, and my dad is 6 ft 4 in, so it was apparent I was going to be tall. My parents were supportive growing up, so I didn’t think being elevated was terrible.
“I never remember getting bullied for my height, and my friends ensured I was appreciated and liked. As I got older, I would buy some of the largest shoes I could find online, extend them out longer, and make them broader to fit my feet.”
