Several researches have reported the benefit of using various body parameters in predicting standing height, and arm span happened to be one of the most reliable ones in adults (Hickson & Frost; Jalzem & Gledhill, 1993; Mohanty et al.; Ter Goon et al.), while some authors (Singh et al., 2012) believe that foot length measurement is the most reliable predictor during adolescent age, due to the fact that ossification and maturation occurs earlier in the foot than the long bones and standing height could be more accurately predicted from foot measurement as compared to long bones during adolescent age.
Rutishauser, in an article published in 1968 had showed that it is possible to estimate stature from the foot length. [16] A study [17] published in 1990, in which the footprints of 250 Dakshina Kannada villagers walking barefoot were analysed showed a higher footprint ratio in males.
We found that when they crawled on a horizontal surface, foot length was positively correlated with pedal wavelength and crawling speed, but was not correlated with wave frequency.

For this reason the most consistent and reliable foot measurement to use to correlate to height is the rear foot length; it deviates much less than any other foot measurement with weight loss and other variables that affect circumference.
