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.

Rob, how much do those give?
[Editor Rob: looking at the front, the insole would have to sit a little bit shy of the stitching mark to fit your foot in, so I'd guess around 0.75 inch range...thinner than the outside suggests.]
delvin says on 18/Dec/14
Click Here how much do these give ?
[Editor Rob: the insole I think sits at the white line, rather than the upper red line, so around an inch is likely.]
stev says on 18/Dec/14
Thanks Rob as always. I will purchase a couple of Zara shoes and see for myself for the insoles are like. Is there much of a difference between dress shoes with heels and shoes they have a wedge style outsole? Like these. A little over an inch do you think? Click Here
[Editor Rob: those might be made to be 3cm, so a little over 1 inch.

I've found sometimes the makers will cut shoe heels to exact 1 inch, others might go with metric and slightly bigger ones at 3cm, they can look quite similar...although that one might be nearer the 3cm mark.]

Pop says on 18/Dec/14
Rob how many inches do uggs like these Click Here give? Thanks
[Editor Rob: not that much more than 0.5 inches]
delvin says on 17/Dec/14

How much do these give Rob? The comment section was cleared before I could read your response
[Editor Rob: if the insole sits at that black line then it could give 1.5, if it's thicker than that it might nudge you a little above that mark. I've never seen them though.]
Ben says on 17/Dec/14
Rob, what do you reckon about these Timberland a mate of mine reckons they are near enough 2 inches?
Click Here
[Editor Rob: nah they won't give anywhere near 2 inches unless the insole is built up and half inch more than the sole itself.]
stev says on 16/Dec/14
Came across these on Zara also Click Here These look like pretty big heels or is it just the photo? Looks at least 1.5 inch. Thanks again Rob.
[Editor Rob: not over 1.5 inch those.

as I say, we'll call these size of heels 'The Brad Pitt' model as that's what he liked to wear for a while.]
stev says on 16/Dec/14
Rob, zara stocking cuban heels, or do you think these a little less than most 4-5cm heels? Click Here On a side note, in your personal opinion can anyone really pull these off without looking like they are trying too hard? Thanks.
[Editor Rob: these should give you in the 1.5 inch range, the trousers would cover a lot of the shoe/heel anyway, this is a kind of heel that brad pitt sometimes has worn.]
charles says on 16/Dec/14

JakeS says on 12/Dec/14
Hey Rob was wondering what you think these boots would give with it also being a clarks boot ive found clarks have fairly thick insoles also? could I get near 5'11''or 5'11'' if im 5'9.5'' which is my average 5 hours after bed height. your thoughts rob? :) Click Here
[Editor Rob: looking at them, even just a few mm insole and they should be near 1.5 inches, it's a pretty thick heel to start with.]
Jay says on 12/Dec/14
Hi rob what do you think these boots would give?
Click Here
[Editor Rob: if insole is only 2mm or so then I can't see it giving much more than an inch]
lelman says on 12/Dec/14
Cheers Rob, What about these, about an inch too?

Click Here
[Editor Rob: absolutely, it is possible that heel is like 3cm, but even if just 1 inch the insole takes it a bit above that.]
Joj says on 11/Dec/14

Height182 says on 11/Dec/14

What do you think these two boots would give? Would there be a big difference?
[Editor Rob: I don't think there would be more than a few mm between them, the work boot might be very slightly thicker, but both look roughly an inch style, I wouldn't say much more than that inch.]
