As Editor of celebheights I've read a lot of commentary by visitors on how much shoes or heels actually give you over your barefoot height. From people saying timberlands give 2 easy inches, to folk thinking a 3-inch heel gives you 3 actual inches and that 2-3 inch lifts are common fair amongst celebrities....there's a tiny bit of misinformation floating around ;-)
The truth is, with women's heels, many don't give what you might imagine. Its all to do with the pivot point of your foot. If you measure yourself barefoot and then go on your tip-toes, you'll probably find you can get close to 3 inches of height. So to get 4 inches of actual height you need a high angle shoe and a platform at the front that is at least 1 inch.
I've created a video talking about heel height in more detail...
