World's tallest model Amazon Eve is visiting the Sunshine Coast later this month.

AMAZON Eve - the woman once dubbed the world's tallest model at 205cm (six foot eight inches) - will be dropping in to the Sunshine Coast later this month.

Eve, who wears a ladies size 14 shoe, is on  a two week promotional visit to Australia during which time she will pop into Nambour shoe boutique, Sole Haven Shoes.

"Our store is one of the few boutiques that can be found in Australia that stock up to ladies size 14,'' owner/operator Kathyrn Simpson said.

"She is here to talk about the amazing life she has lead so far, how being so tall has brought so many fantastic experiences into her life.''

Eve, who is to appear on A Current Affair, will visit the store on December 17.

She is no longer the world's tallest model, after being pipped by 1cm by a Brazilian teenager.
