(CNN) -- America's tallest man can't find shoes that fit.
Even worse, getting a pair for his size will cost thousands.
Igor Vovkovinskiy is hoping the kindness of strangers will help him get back in his feet. The 7'8" Minnesota man hopes to raise $16,000 for custom-made shoes.
By Tuesday afternoon, Vovkovinskiy had raised over $7,000 on the website GoFundMe.
