At what age do your feet stop growing?
Not Medical Advice: The feet stop growing for most girls at 14 years of age. Foot growth stops for boys when they reach 16.
Feet grow approximately 1 cm each year. Between birth and 4 years of age, a child's foot doubles in length. At 10, most girls have completed 90% of foot growth. A boy completes about 80% of his foot growth by the time he is 10 years old.
The feet are divided into 3 sections:
The forefoot containing the 5 toes and the 5 longer bones.
The midfoot which is pyramid-like collection of bones. These include the 3 cuneiform bones, the cuboid bone, and the navicular bone.
The hindfoot forms the heel and ankle. The talus bone supports the leg bones forming the ankle. The calcaneus (heel bone) is the largest bone in the foot.
Speaking of feet, Dodger's Andre Ethier got the day off Sunday because of a foot injury, sadly. He was hit by his own foul tip on the fourth inning of Saturday's game against the Atlanta Braves.
