How tall is Sneakers ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Sneakers's height is 5ft 8in (173 cm)

Nike Air Force One

3cm (1.18 inches)

Nike's big seller, these have thick looking soles up close but don't give as much height as they'd suggest they might, basically 1.2 inches.
Adidas Superstar 2

2.5cm (1 inch) - 2cm (0.75 inch)

A popular style, the shell toe. Brand new this sole looks to give more than what they actually give, which is really 2.5cm. But after a few weeks of wear though this sneaker becomes 2cm, or 0.75 inch.
Adidas Oregon

3cm (1.18 inches)

New, it gives about 1.25 inches. With some trainers, after a few weeks the insole kind of gets bedded in and so it settles down a few mm less than new. I've worn this pair to 4 conventions in 2006. For pic reference, those cons were these people were at: 1) Meghan Gallagher, 2) Doug Bradley, 3) Glenn Morshower
Reebock Classic

2.85cm (1.15 inches)

New they'd give more 1.2 inch, I've worn a used pair to 2 conventions. For pic reference, those cons were these people were at: 1) Lou Ferrigno, 2) Carlos Bernard.
Nike Shox NZ, Turbo OZ

3.6cm (1.41 inches)

If new out the box both these pairs gave good 1.4 inches, a few weeks of wear and for me I found they'd creeped down a little below 1.4. Absolutely my favorite type of trainer based on comfort. I've worn these to 2 conventions, for reference: 1)Ron Glass, 2)Tony Todd.
Nike Airmax 95

3.4cm (1.34 inches)

New, seemed to give about 1.35 inches.
Nike Free

2.75cm (1.08 inches)

Extremely lightweight trainer, the sole looks like it could give you more than this, but the insole is shaped slightly curved at the heel, after a few weeks drops to basically 1 inch.
Nike Air 180

2.7cm (1.06 inches)

Just over 1 inches, used to be kind of pair I'd wear every day as they seemed very comfortable. I've worn this trainer to one convention, for reference: 1) Jensen Ackles con. They dropped to about 0.98 inches by then.
Nike Airmax Ltd

3.45cm (1.36 inches)

This is kind of similar height to airmax 360, although I think gives a little more than this limited edition.
Puma Tx 300

3.2cm (1.26 inches)

I picked this pair up thinking on the size of the heel they'd give near 1.4 inches, but surprisingly not even 1.3. I have worn this pair to C11, for reference: 1) James Marsters con.
Timberland Euro Dub

3cm (1.18 inches)

The timberlands usually have a larger heel and a lesser heel, the above new gives 1.18 inches and is the lesser heel.
Adidas Samoa

2.5cm (1 in)

This is a comfy version of the shoe, gives near 1 in new, normal samoas give bit less than this.
Doc Martin Style

3.4cm (1.34 inches)

This shows a typical doc martin style boot, where the heel is cut to a standard range. Many think such a boot gives 1.5-1.6, but not really unless its got extremely thick and cushioned insole.
Crocs Cayman

2.2cm (0.87 inch)

Popular summer shoe. Concave shape so give less than an inch in reality. Ugly looking things if you ask me.
Vans Classic Slip Ons

1.4-1.5cm (0.55 inch)

The chequered style is popular. Brand New they give around 1.6cm, but after wearing 1.4-1.5cm
Converse All Star

1.6cm (0.62 inches)

I own several classics, there are some special editions. Slimline converse give the same.
Nike Shox Arraw

3cm (1.18 in)

These are not as obviously big as normal shox, they have pretty comfy insoles. brand new I measured them as 3cm, after a year they were about 1.1 inch.
Nike Street Shox V

2.1cm (0.83 in)

A low urban style of shox, nowhere near as comfy as arraws but if you want less sole this is a good trainer.
Boat Shoe

1.9cm (0.75 in)

A lot of boat shoes have pretty slim insoles, this pair is typically the style that gives about three quarters of an inch.
Merrell Fashion Trainer

2cm (0.8 in)

I've worn this shoe at quite a few conventions over 2009-2010.
Airwalk Skate Shoe

1.3-1.4cm (0.5 in)

This is a low skate style sneaker, it appears to give more height than it actually does.
Adio Skate Shoe

1.8-1.9cm (0.75 in)

Another style of skate shoes. A lot of Adios give 0.6-0.75 inch range
Caterpiller Boot

3.7-3.8cm (1.5 in)

A thick soled Cat Boot with an insole that is a few mm thick, gives in total about 1.5 inches.
Nike AirMax 360

3.5cm (1.38 in)

One of the thicker styles of Nike Running Sneakers.

Took the big ruler out in the shoe shop just to confirm those Desert Boots, because it is quite a typical heel and style.
Click Here
As you can see, it is a tiny bit more than 1 inch. I looked at the insole again and it felt quite thin, so I'd say just a little bit over 1 inch for them.

There are some clarks shoes that have similar 1-1.1 inch soles but have thicker insoles. I spotted 1 pair with a 1/4 inch spongy insole, so it would look like not much more than an inch, but if a celeb was wearing them they'd be like 1.3 inches.

how much height does van mid ellis have
JD says on 14/Sep/14
Hi Rob,
How much for The Adidas Springblade and Nike Air Max 2014 ?
Which one has gonna make me feel the tallest ? Thanks
Jeremy says on 14/Sep/14
Rob I am 5ft7 normally. How tall can I appear If I wear 5.5inch dons Detna boots?
[Editor Rob: you are going to look in public like a 5ft 10-10.5 man would. But, remember walking about in the Big Dons is going to take practice and time.]
stev says on 13/Sep/14
Thanks for that Rob, I can see the subtle difference in that pic. I have been searching for a formal shoe that is going to give the most, without wearing obvious elevators. I came across these Lambretta models in the sale, they all seem to have the same heel, do you think these are giving the usual 1.2 range? On appearance alone they are the thickest heel I have seen while still looking like smart shoes. Click Here The other 2 options are these Dr Martens, Click Here which usually have a pretty decent air insole, and these from Zara. Click Here All in the same range do you think? Thanks Rob, appreciate your keen eye here.
[Editor Rob: in the first link, yes those can give a good 1.2 to 1.3 inches, quite similar as the zara one, definitely no less than 1.2 and with a few mm insole I'm thinking near 1.3 inch]
Editor Rob says on 13/Sep/14
stev, those are typical inch styles.

here is a photo of a heel that gives just over an inch, like almost 1.2 (well about 1.2 with a 2mm insole) and the other one is near 1.5 inch

stev says on 10/Sep/14
Hi Rob, what do you think will give the most from these casual boots? The classic clarks or Dr martens desert style? Thanks Click Here Click Here

Jake S says on 9/Sep/14
Hey Rob how much does the standard doc marten (mens) boot give brand new and also used and if im 5'9''-5'10'' how tall will I be in them really appreciate this site rob :)
[Editor Rob: according to a former height expert on this site, you could go with what he says: Click Here.

Really, they are nowhere near that big, a lot of Doc Martin heels are manufactured to about a little bit insole and you might get more 1.3 range than 'almost 2'. Maybe they have improved their insole lately, I've not looked at them for a while.]

The lunar nike's do look quite thick, but near enough 1.3 I think

[Editor Rob: around 1.3 I believe]
Andrea says on 7/Sep/14
Rob, how much you think the New Balance 574 give?
I measured in shoes and without shoes and the difference was a bit under 3 cms... I thought they were over 3 cms to be fair. One thing: i've been wearing them for almost an year, but only 1-2 days a week.
[Editor Rob: the insole might be 2mm less after some wear, new, they look 3cm.]

Barragan says on 6/Sep/14
What type of heigh insoles are the most comfortable to wear and fit well into a high top shoe without any problems? Half or Full insoles are better? Which material? Thanks Rob.
[Editor Rob: I would buy a size about half-size bigger or a looser fitting high top and try the 1-inch insoles (see amazon or ebay for basic shoe lifts). That gives you a decent enough boost and is not so difficult to walk in.]
Joe says on 6/Sep/14
Hi Rob , I was wondering about those new shoes , Nike Kaishi, the soles look pretty thick and I think they are modeled after the roshe run. how much do you think they measured? thank you

Rob, what would these give after wearing them enough where they're not new. New 1.3 seems about right. Those are the sneakers I wore when I met Khalid.

[Editor Rob: from my own nike's I found about 0.1in loss, although I had one pair that started 0.75 and ended 0.5, but ones like yours might not lose that much, a couple mm]

Hi Rob, how much do these doc martens give? (the product details say extra thick sole)
and could i put a small lift inside without looking suspicious)
[Editor Rob: now those will give near 2 inches, an extra half inch insole won't be noticeable, even a 1-inch (if you bought the doc martens a half size or full size bigger) wouldn't really be spotted by most people...]
viennese says on 26/Aug/14
how about these, rob? probably a solid inch?

Click Here
[Editor Rob: yes they should give a decent inch (insole might not give much but hard to tell). Some insoles are like paper thin, others can still be 3mm once the weight of your body is on them]
Alex 6'0 says on 25/Aug/14
Rob, what do typical sandals give in height?
[Editor Rob: some can give just 0.5 inches, but a good chunk of them might be in 0.6-0.8 range, it can be hard to say without seeing them.]
Editor Rob says on 25/Aug/14
I looked at the Nike Max 2014's again and the bigger size (it was a 10UK) looked like it could give near 1.4 inches.

Nike roshe running shoes look massive up close. Just bought a pair and compared them to my 1.3 inch nike air pegasus 89 trainers and they actually look their or there abouts at 1.5 inch, well as a size 10 anyway. Unless Pegasus give under 1.3 i couldn't see nike roche just giving 1.3 new in size 10 themselves
Nick74 says on 15/Aug/14
Hi Rob, Thanks for the advice on the Cuban Heel dress shoes, it made a real difference at the wedding I attended. You were right aswell, very few people picked up on then either. Could you advise a boot that gives 1.5 to 2 inches?. Great site as always.
[Editor Rob: well you could go for a cowboy type boot...most of them give nearly 2 inches...the ones with heels like These.

Other boots like These ones will give a bit over 1.5 inches aswell, there are other links at bottom of that page to similar timberland thicker heeled boots. That's the kind of thickness you need to get into the 1.5-1.75 inch range.]
matty says on 13/Aug/14
Rob gonna buy some nike airmax cant find any nike airmax ltd or nike airmax 95 or nike airmax 360 bUT would nike airmax 365 or nike airmaxcrusher range or even the nike air max run4lite trainers give the same sort of height? Thanks
Dan says on 13/Aug/14
Rob,if I'm 185 cm barefoot,how tall do you think I am in these boots? Because when I wear them,I don't feel that much of a big height increase. Thanks in advance.

Click Here
[Editor Rob: don't know that specific type. Similar ones can vary usually in 1-1.25 range]
JohnGB says on 12/Aug/14
Rob, do you know how much height your average dress shoes gives? I feel pretty tall in them, I think it must be somewhere close to 1.5 inches. Would be great to hear what you think.
[Editor Rob: 0.5inch is a small dress shoe, most common range is 0.75 to 1 inch, but a decent proportion are in the 1-1.25 inch range aswell. With the insole on some shoes it pushes them into that range. 1.5inch is a pretty big size and that is more like cuban-heels.]
Poet says on 12/Aug/14
Rob, i measured at 170,4 cm (if i remember correctly, 170 cm at least) with some kind of dress shoes ..
And i'm a little curious ..
I've been measured at 167,5 cm barefoot and 168 lately (i'm not sure if i've grown .. I just turned 20) But what's my height in feet and inches? Is it 5'5.75 or 5'6?
Can i get away with 5'6?
EzioAuditore711 says on 11/Aug/14
They're a size 11.5 as well. Does that increase the amount of height they add?
[Editor Rob: the moulds in some sneakers might change over a certain size, I don't know about those ones though.]
Tom182 says on 11/Aug/14
How about these Rob?
Click Here
[Editor Rob: just under the inch mark]
EzioAuditore711 says on 11/Aug/14
It does sit as high as the white part of the midsole.
[Editor Rob: if it is that high it could give 1.5, I don't think this model is in a uk shop so can't see it up close]
Lifts says on 10/Aug/14
Hi Rob, would a pair of Adidas Superstars be fine while using a one inch lift or would you recommend a mid or hi top shoe instead? I intend to progress to wearing two inch lifts eventually, by that stage would I need to be wearing mid or hi tops anyway?
[Editor Rob: I would try a high top one size or half size bigger and start with 1-inch lift in those. Find an ideal type of high top you like and then it will be easier to transition to 1.5 in the future if you can manage 1-inch ok.]
435 says on 10/Aug/14
Just to correct you, Rob : The New Balance 574's do not give as much as they seem to give. My Docs, which are proven to give 2,9cm (take a look at their homepage) give A LOT more than my New Balance sneakers, so they give an estimated 2,2cm when new, when worn for a bit,a little bit less. I might be wrong with the values, correct me if you know more than me.
[Editor Rob: last time I checked them they were over an inch new]
JD says on 10/Aug/14
Is there a difference between the nike air Pegasus 30 and 31 ? If so, how much would you say ? Thx
Click Here
Click Here
[Editor Rob: they look very similar, just a slight change in the styling of the outsole]
EzioAuditore711 says on 10/Aug/14
Is there any way to measure it? It's definitely more than an inch. Closer to two.
[Editor Rob: without seeing it, hard to really say as I would be surprised if the insole was sitting as high as the 'highest white point' of the outsole...that part would mean it was in the 1.5in range, 2 inches is a huge amount really.]
BodTheBuilder says on 10/Aug/14
Hi Rob, how much do these give? Click Here
[Editor Rob: pretty much similar to the previous one I answered...I think if you are a smaller size then these might give no more than 1.2, but bigger size 10's a bit more. I looked at these air 90's a few years ago and found a sub 9 size looked a few mm thinner than the size 10+ size.]
Cable says on 10/Aug/14
Hey there. Thanks for answering my questions Rob! I've got one last question though.. Do you think I will still grow taller? I'm 16 and 5'1. That's pretty short for my age. My parents are short too. My mom is below 5' and my dad is about 5'2-3. My other relatives are pretty normal though with their height. What do you think is the best way to grow taller? I really hate being short..
[Editor Rob: while there is still time, genetically you might just have to accept that you might not gain many more inches.

If I met you it wouldn't bother me if you were 5ft 1 or 6ft 1.]

Dear Rob
how much a typical dress shoes usually add to height? is it 2cm?

[Editor Rob: those shouldn't give less than an inch, the insole will be a couple of mm and the outsole looks like your typical 1-inch heel.]
Nick74 says on 5/Aug/14
Hi Rob, Great site as ever. I wonder if you could suggest a pair of dress boots with a near 1.5 inch heel?. I am going to a wedding and dont want to feel the shortest.
[Editor Rob: this is what brad pitt has sometime wore, a dressy shoe which is flattish at front but the heel in the 4cm range, a bit like These, they will give you a solid 1.5 inches (with insole maybe a little over 1.5), it is a quite large heel compared to the normal range like 0.7-1.2 though...but then your trousers will cover most of the heel anyway so I wouldn't worry.

Look at the other ones in the bottom of the page for different styles, these will be available in American amazon aswell. I know a few guys at last wedding I was at had cuban heels just for a bit more height, but most people don't really study shoes that much.]

[Editor Rob: not see any that spring to mind that give that kind of range. Just use amazon or ebay as they vary in price and size. This foam insert Here is a kind that gives in the 0.5-0.6ish range and looks more comfortable to wear.]

why do converse look like they give a least a inch

Jack says on 21/Jul/14
Rob do you think there is anything wrong with wearing a half inch lift in shoes like converse or anything similar in profile? Its not like your really cheating height because heeled shoes/boots will give 1-1.5 inches. It would just make you as tall as you would be in say a shoe which gave you a little over an inch.
[Editor Rob: I think some people would do that, it is just making you a solid 1.1 inch shoe]

Sometimes with womens low style footwear you can underestimate - if I saw this shoe on a celebrity I might think it's a 1/4 inch sole and maybe a few mm for the insole, but the insole sits were my thumb is, so more like 0.75 type shoe:

Hey there Rob. I bought and started to use the Nike Overplay VIII with the 2-3cm insoles. My size is 41 but I bought size 42 shoes to fit correctly on me, and to not to cause the bulged laces effect as you wrote. You was right, with the bigger size It didnt caused any lace problems, otherwise it would have. Although the shoes became pretty uncomfortable with the height insoles in it. After a while, I could hardly, but I could figure out a good solution for that problem. I covered the uncomforable height insole with simple 0.5mm insole. And on the top of that I covered the 2 layers with the original Nike Overplay insoles which is the original insole of the shoes. So now its 3 layers, the 1st layer is the height increasing one, the 2nd is the Lacoste 0.5mm simple insoles and the 3rd is the original Nike ovreplay insole. I would like to recommend the camouflage effect given by the top layer of insoles. Always put the original shoe insole on the top of the height insoles to hide that you're using this kind of cheating :) Even if someone asks you to put your shoes off, he/she is not going to notice the height insoles, only the original simple insole is going to be seen by the person.
So thats my "brilliant" solotion for the comfort problem which I had. What do you think Rob?
[Editor Rob: yes that is a good option as at a glance it might not be that obvious if your sneakers are lying about. Whatever solution, adding a small extra insole to improve the feel is something worth trying.]

What do you think a pair of suede desert boots would give (Click Here)? Looks like it might be similar to the boat shoe, just under an inch, wouldn't mind if they got me up to 6ft, though!

Hi, Rob. You said I can do some stretching to grow a little bit more than the expected. But I'm a little bit confuse, what kind of exercises? I mean: For the back, for the legs? I've searched in Internet but I don't find anything. Maybe you know about them.

Thank you very much :) !
[Editor Rob: half way down this article Here is some of the basic yoga style stretches and normal everyday stretches that most grow taller programs have.]

Hey There Rob.
I would like to ask that how much height does the Nike Overplay VIII series basketball shoes add? And my 2nd question about the shoe is that it is possible or not to put 3 cm height increasing shoe insoles into it?
These are the shoes: Click Here
Thank you.
[Editor Rob: those can give 1.2 inch, if you put a 3cm lift inside your laces area would bulge a bit, but not a great amount - if you bought the sneaker a half size bigger than normal then that might be perfect]
Somebody's Problem says on 16/Jul/14
Hey Rob for answering, really enjoy your work, and the data here.
Turns out you were right, i did grow to 5'10" ( yay? )
But i've also realized that new sneakers give more heel than the old ones.
But how long would the initial 0.62 last? some 3 months?
Anyway thanks.
[Editor Rob: the insoles of converse are pretty good I think, they should last a few months of wear before starting to lose anything - unless they get really worn or you weigh a lot...I do have one pair that is a few years old and now give 0.5 inch range, it lost a few mm.]
Crypto139 says on 15/Jul/14
Hey rob I have recently saw in ads for 12 inch high heels you know, they are huge! But do you think they really give 12 inches of height? How much would they really give?
[Editor Rob: Like these :)...they are insanely big, and potentially ankle breakers! But when described as 12 inch as that image shows, the back of the stem will measure 12 inches, but the actual height will be more in the 9.5-9.75 inch range - the platform part is about 6 inches.]

How much do these two Click Here

Hey Rob...
I own a pair of the Converse. I'm 14 and 1,77 for now.
If those sneakers give only 0.62 inches, how come back at school, some of my friends told me I was taller than before in just a month of recess, if I was the same height as before, and the only thing I did was get a new pair of these SAME sneakers...?
My point is: it's only 1.6cm
[Editor Rob: I've no idea, maybe you did grow a little during that time?]

[Editor Rob: I think they're the same, brand new not that much under 1 inch but they lose about 3mm after a few weeks. To be fair, the pair I had didn't last long, it was poor design I found from Adidas on those superstars.]
Idk says on 10/Jul/14
Hi, Rob, I'm 16 too. I'm near 6'2''. Some people has said me that I will only grow an inch more, but my dream is to be 6'4''. Do you think it's possible for me to be 6'4'' or -even- 6'5'' or 6'3'' is the maximum I can reach?

Thank you very much! :]
[Editor Rob: well there is a chance. You already are quite tall, but if you want to maximise your height then eat good meals, get good sleep, just keep up exercise (even do some daily stretching) so you give your body the best chance of reaching max height (or even slightly more!)]

I find interesting what the other user has said about the height difference.

Do you think a person whose height is 190 cm (6'3'') can shrink the whole inch?

Hello, Rob. What is the height difference between you wake up and you go to sleep?
Some people says me near 0.7 inch and other people have said me that they have measured a difference of 1 to 1.2 inches.

Thank you, Rob :)
[Editor Rob: about 0.7 inch is very common, mine is near that. 1 inch is a bit more than average. The longer your spine the more chance you could shrink in the 1 inch range.]

How much height do Converse All Star Chucks lose after some time of wearing? I'm 182 cm barefoot, do they still take me up to a legit 6 ft?

Hey Rob,

Nike AirMax 90 and AirMax 180, which pair of shoes give a higher sole? Your Nike Air 180 picture above shows a 2.7cm sole height but it looks like a pair of AirMax 180 to me, while the Nike AirMax 180 picture doesnt look like AirMax 180 to me so I am a little bit confuse. I would like to buy the pair of Nike AirMax shoes which make me look the tallest. Thanks;)
[Editor Rob: oh it should be air max 360, I will update that bit at the bottom...the 360's give a decent amount in the 1.3 inch range, the 180 on this page was a great sneaker, I wore it for a couple of years but the quality wasn't that great and they wore down fast!]
Wesley says on 12/Jun/14

Rob! Reading all the posts I got very uncertain about which sneakers to buy for summer. I read NewBalance574 is the thicker; but I read also about AirForce1, Nike Lunar and Airmax..I usually use a 2cm insole to comfort my feet so what's your advice about my situation? which sneakers I have to buy? Thank you mate!
[Editor Rob: some sneakers fit different feet better, unfortunately it is hard to say which I would recommend as from trying them all on, the Lunar actually felt a good fit and the airmax I think needed a bit more 'wearing in' for my feet.

Air Force 1 I had a pair and didn't think they were that great, donated them ]
Sean5 says on 16/May/14
With sneakers/normal dress shoe would you say the average would be 1.25"?
[Editor Rob: nah, that'd be too much, a 1.25 dress shoe is pretty big, a lot are between 0.7 and 1.3.

When you get into skate shoes or vans/converse/low fashion sneakers you get more 0.5-0.6.]

Hi Rob, do you know whether the air max 90 hyperfuse gives as much as the original air max 90? They look a bit thinner and more streamlined or are they the same? Thanks.

Hey Rob I have 2 questions for you: I want to buy a new pair of sneakers for summer, which adds more height between: NewBalance574, Nike OG Superior and Nike RosheRun?
The second question is: I bought on the net these lifts:

Click Here

I use only the "3.5cm part" but it seems giving to me only 1,5 cm more than my normal height, why? using smaller lifts sometimes seems to me to be/to walk taller than when I use big lifts..can you explain me please? thank you very much...greets from italy!
[Editor Rob: the roshe and NB are pretty similar I feel, I can't explain your lift problem - the 3.5cm one should give you maybe 2.5-3cm, the smaller one near 1.5cm...]

Hey Rob, is there a big sneaker heel height difference between a us size 6, 6,5 or 7?
[Editor Rob: not really, but I noticed on some brands say a size 7 versus a size 9-10, there was a 2-3mm difference - as if the manufacturing changed the thickness of the shoe for sizes above 8! It was nike air styles I noticed it on.]
Bran says on 11/Apr/14
Cheers Rob, i believe using older insoles is a cheap way for people wanting to gain abit of height rather than buying a half inch lift or something, and do things like air max 1 and 90's really give a difference from each other, as i would guess they both look 1.3 inch ish.
[Editor Rob: sometimes old insoles can squish to nothing though! Some gel insoles for running and just orthopaedic type can give 1/4 inch. My sister was doing running recently and found she needed an insole to help and hers is like a fraction of an inch.]

I had a look at those Nike Roche again and definitely look a good 1.3 inch style, as do the New Balance 574 range, the insole might lose 3-4mm after a few months with those ones though.
