HEIGHT(growing after 17? )

hey, I'm 17.5 y old guy. I've stopped growing at 14, since that i haven't grown any inch. My height is 5'5 .  I heard that we can predict height by shoe size? my shoe size is 7 is that mean theres no chance for me to grow any more?
father: 5'8 mother: 4'11
Thank you,,

Hi there!

The height of a person is mostly dependent on ones genes and a few environmental factors. The average height of boys can be calculated by (Father's Height + Mother's Height + 13) / 2) cm. You currently stand at 165 while the average would be around 168. Hence you still have potential for growth. Also boys can grow in height upto 22-25 years of age though height increase after 18 years is usually slower. Shoe size is not an indicator of final height.
Hope this information helps.

Take care!
