Shoe selection: The growth centers of most males will close by age 18 although a few will grow a little longer.By 20, the growth centers have closed and you are done. If you wish, an x-ray of your hand could identify any additional growth potential.Good diet, exercise and proper rest allows you to reach your maximum height.

Can't : You cannot artificially increase your height. By the age of 20, your growth is pretty much done. Just be content with the height you are now.
