Name That Foot, episode 3

To which three individuals do the feet pictured below belong? 
The first person to correctly name all three in the comments section below earns an honorary degree in kickology, with a minor in trivial photography. Answers will be added to the post next week.

Hint: he is 5'-10" tall (give or take an inch or two). If he were 100 times that size, regardless of whether he was standing still or spinning, then he'd be almost as tall as that nearby famous landmark.

Hint: this photo was not taken in Mombasa Kenya nor in Reykjavik Iceland.

Hint: Need to fill up your gas tank? That has been possible for a very long time.

Bonus hint: the preceding three hints are interchangeable between all three pictures.

There was no official winner this week. A very honorable mention goes to the trio of Adam Tanalski of Hammer Kicking Academy, UT commit Pat Toole & Nevada commit Zac Henry, who were tantalizingly close - coming up with both football players and on the correct team for the soccer player.

All three hints pertained to the city of Seattle Washington. A person just under six feet tall times one hundred would be just under 600 feet, which is almost as tall as the 605 foot Space Needle. Mombasa Kenya and Reykjavik Iceland are sister cities of Seattle. The first gas station was located in Seattle (although there are a few other locations that stake a similar claim).

The correct answers are:
A. Erik Folk, former kicker for the University of Washington Huskies.
B. Fredy Montero, forward for the Seattle Sounders FC
C. Jon Ryan, punter for the Seattle Seahawks.
