The Biggest Shoe Sizes in NBA History

The size of NBA players extends beyond their most visible physical dimensions, encompassing other notable aspects such as wingspan, hand size and shoe size. The wingspan, measuring the distance between their outstretched arms, further amplifies their reach and defensive capabilities. The longer the wingspan, the more that player can disrupt passing lanes, contest shots, and alter the trajectory of an opponent’s shot. Their large hand sizes allow for better grip and control, facilitating precise ball handling, and enabling them to execute intricate moves and finishes.

These are big men. And the bigger and taller they are, the bigger the shoes that need to fit their feet are. Here are 75 notable NBA players with their shoe sizes and height.
