@MD Yes, they definitely weigh and measure them first thing in the morning at the combine.

you make some good points as well. we also can't see footwear. I still think the picture has some merit though, since it is with a guy who was measured.
MD says on 22/Apr/15
@pauly e, if the combine measurement is early morning any he measures 5'11.25", it's safe to say he's probably under 5'11" by the evening. Either way, I think David's neck is bent ever-so-slightly in that photo and O'dell is standing with better posture with his head tilted back slightly. All-in-all, I'd bet they'd measure very close in height.

Rob, I always wanted to know how tall Jamie Redknapp is. If Thierry is close to 6'2'' do you reckon Redknapp could be 6'0.5''?

here he is with Odell Beckham Jr. who is 5'11-1/4". David is not standing straight, but is somewhat less than Odell using eye and shoulder levels as a measure.

Odell Beckham is probably 5'11 flat in the evening, which this site uses, so i would certainly say that David is not over that and possibly less.
Height183 says on 20/Apr/15
Brooklyn could be 5'6.5'' Maximum, but that's about it if you're asking me. I don't think Cara is 5'7'' either. It's just what I think. I don't think he would measure 5'7''. If I didn't compare Brooklyn next to celebs, I would've guessed him at 5'5''! As for David, yes I agree with 5'11''.
TJE says on 18/Apr/15
@Height183

It seems you've taken a small step towards a solid argument. He does indeed look 5'6 with Ryan Seacrest.

Before I continue, I'd like to point out that you're like the pot calling the kettle black when simplifying my argument as "5'8! 5'8!", when your argument has essentially been, "He's 5'6 at best! He's 5'6 at best! Look at this picture, he's 5'6 at best!"

Now, back to topic. Have you considered any other variables, such as footwear and posture. To put things into perspective, here's the footwear Brooklyn had on that night:

Click Here

They look to be less than 1 inch, a few mm under at most. Idk what Seacrest wore, but I can safely assume that he wore a regular dress shoe, since he's dressed more formally and almost always wear dress shoes. So there's maybe a 0.25 inch difference in footwear, with Seacrest having the advantage.

Ok, now for the posture, Seacrest is standing quite well, where as Brooklyn appears to be standing a bit looser and might even be leaning in towards Ryan. So, Seacrest has the posture advantage by maybe 0.6-0.7 inches, and that's a slightly conservative guess.

Let's not forget that there's about an inch difference between them. The top of Brooklyn's head comes up to Seacrest's hairline, and that's assuming his hairstyle is 2-2.5 inches tall.

So Brooklyn looks about an inch shorter that a 5'7.5 Ryan Seacrest with his disadvantages adding up to nearly an inch. The difference cancels itself out; Brooklyn is 5'7.5.

Still not convinced?

With 5'7 Cara Delevingne from the same night:

Cara's footwear:

If they had equal posture, the difference would be around 2.25 inches. She's got just about that much more, so he looks 5'7 with her that night, but the ground's wonky. Still, he doesn't drop under 5'7.

Last but not least, with 5'3.5 Chole Grace Moretz:

Hopefully all the links work. That's all I have to say for now. Have a good day.

And on an unrelated note, David Beckham is 5'11.

@height183 Lampard is clearly 1cm taller, there are a lot of photos that prove it.
Lampard 183-184
Gerrard 182-183
184.3cm says on 18/Apr/15
To be fair though we cant see footwear and Seacrest has far better posture. I think my 5'7 estimate is pretty close for his kid. Obviously not 5'8 though.
Bishop says on 17/Apr/15
Yeah, I never saw Brooklyn as 5'8" like people are saying. Probably between 5'6-5'7". He could still be growing, of course.
Height183 says on 17/Apr/15
Here is a picture from the other day of Brooklyn next to 5'7'' Ryan Seacrest.

Where are the guys now who were screaming ''5ft 8!!! 5ft 8!!!'' ?? Shows me how little you know about your heights. I told you Brooklyn was 5'6'' range at best!

There is No way in HELL Brooklyn is as tall as Rob!
Height183 says on 15/Apr/15
Frank Lampard is another guy who edges out Steven Gerrard when it comes to height.

Click Here

The height difference can be quite hard to spot because both of them are almost identical in height. But you can see Lampard is slightly taller.
Height183 says on 14/Apr/15
I can still buy 6'0'' for Gerrard just like Rob. At times he can look under that mark though. Jamie Carragher also can't be anymore than 6'0''.
[Editor Rob: Carragher himself actually claims six foot...]
Almost 5 10 says on 13/Apr/15
5' 11" is accurate. He's always looked a genuine 5' 11" to me. The only time I questioned his height was in a photo below amongst the general public, where he looked very average height and I thought he appeared more 5' 9.5"-5' 10". Just goes to show that everyone can look shorter at times than they actually are!
Bishop says on 13/Apr/15
lol, meant Xabi. Sorry about that.
Bishop says on 12/Apr/15
Xavi looks a strong 6'0". Gerard is probably a bit under the mark.
6ftMagician says on 10/Apr/15
Think Gerard is 5'11.75 - not a legit 6ft guy.
Xabi alonso is weak 6ft.
Pepe Reina is legit 6ft as is Torres.
Arch Stanton says on 7/Apr/15
Colin Farrell or Johnny Depp I think tend to get the most chicks raving about them. The Hemsworths and Jackman too.
James B says on 7/Apr/15
Arch Stanton says on 2/Apr/15
@James B I reckon Beckham doesn't look as good in person. It's the voice primarily. In photographs you see him and expect him to have a sort of Clint Eastwood growl and as soon as he starts talking he seems like a wet blanket!

Beckham is renowned for being a good looking man yet a lot of women seem to make comments about him like "those tattoos of his are gross"

A fair few women i have met when asking about beckhams looks don't really rate him and just think hes too vain. A lot of girls i have met love Danny dyer though. Strange huh?

@MD: I'll post it again

I thought Xabi would be around average height like 5'9'' Lol. He looks about 6'0.25'' to be honest.
MD says on 6/Apr/15
@Height183, that link to your picture doesn't work, but how tall did you think Xabi was? It's not like it was some total mystery. It's not like he's grossly under or overlisted.
Height183 says on 3/Apr/15
Rob, would you also give Xabi Alonso 6'0''?

Click Here

His height really surprised me, had no clue he was this tall.
TJE says on 3/Apr/15
@Arch Stanton
Well, he hasn't always looked like that. I believe he had a makeover in the 90s; but yeah, you would expect a deeper voice.
6ftMagician says on 3/Apr/15
Brooklyn does look to be around 173cm right now (he's only what, 16?. Perhaps will get a final spurt to take him to 5'10'' range. Doubt he will hit 6ft but you never know.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Apr/15
@James B I reckon Beckham doesn't look as good in person. It's the voice primarily. In photographs you see him and expect him to have a sort of Clint Eastwood growl and as soon as he starts talking he seems like a wet blanket!
Height183 says on 1/Apr/15
Rob, what height would you give Steven Gerrard if you had him here? 5'11.75''?
[Editor Rob: I might give him 6ft]
Height183 says on 31/Mar/15
I can buy 5'11'' for David, but at times I'm not convinced that he is a proper 5'11'' person.
James B says on 30/Mar/15
Beckham could be dipping into 179cm these days with all his years being an athlete and injuries a fraction of height loss is not impossible. With Prince William I dont think becks looks a legit 5'11 either.
Arch Stanton says on 29/Mar/15
All of the boys are more like Victoria, especially around the eyes Click Here , none of them look that obviously like David. I'd say Cruz looks the most like both of them, Brooklyn the least. The Brooklyn kid is a bit irritating, tries too hard to look cool. Romeo on the otherhand looks effortlessly cool.
Height183 says on 29/Mar/15
Seen a recent picture of David and Brooklyn and he did look 5'7''. It's really hard to pin down people who could be growing. Let's just see how tall he ends up. He's got to grow 4 more inches if he wants to be the same height as his Dad. Realistically he's got a short 2 years to do that.
Dmeyer says on 29/Mar/15
After seing him with 185 Zidane he is no more Than 180cm he is no 181
TJE says on 24/Mar/15
Height183, face it, you haven't proved anything at all so far. Well, to be fair, I can believe 5'6 for him 2 years ago, but today he's 5'7.5 minimum maybe 5'7.25 minimum. Still though....

Rob, what do you think is more probable for Brooklyn nowadays: 5'6 or 5'8?
Arch Stanton says on 24/Mar/15
Agreed, Brooklyn looks nothing like David.
Height183 says on 21/Mar/15
That is a 5'6'' frame at best.

Click Here

Don't be ridiculous and say that Brooklyn is tall as Rob. Brooklyn in trainers would still be shorter than Rob barefoot.
6ftMagician says on 21/Mar/15
Beckham shorter than Bale, people remember to consider the angle. Consider the possible footwear too - Bale soccer cleats, and Becks in sneakers. Consider Bale drenched in sweat so likely shrunk 1cm (or close) during the intense session. Consider all these factors and Beckham really does seem a fair 180cm listing, perhaps will creep down to 179 sometime soon, if not already.
MD says on 20/Mar/15
I don't mean to be rude, Magician, but that is a crazy theory. Almost every actual modern study ever done shows higher average heights as one climbs the income ladder. Even just anecdotally your story would seem to be in the extreme minority. Most of us notice that rich kids are generally taller than poor kids with certain other controlled factors (ethnicity, location, etc...).
lee says on 19/Mar/15
he is clearly no shorter than gareth ball in this link. maybe its just the angle of the photo or davids shoes give him more height. what you think rob?
Click Here
[Editor Rob: Beckham really is a comfortable inch smaller there, possibly even a bit more. ]
6ftMagician says on 19/Mar/15
Brooklyn and Jaden smith similar cases.

What's interesting Rob, is that working class kids seem to grow taller than their richer counterparts. A phenomenon I've observed at University.

I see a lot of rich kids grow short; I know correlation X= causation, but my theory is with vast quantities of food, they become comfortable and thus never eat much. Poorer kids eat all they are given, or starve (they only have 1 option). Poorer kids often come from more challenging environments, the body naturally produces more HGH in fight/flight situations, rather than the estrogen-filled environment of pretentious interactions that governs a lot of richer kids environments. Being exposed to stress is important every now and again, it keeps you from being a nervous breakdown when life does go through those rough phases, and it probably releases HGH.

Conclusion, if you are better of, then don't baby your kids, allow them to have a full childhood, and no, buying watches/cars and other (often) meaningless consumerist rubbish (see Brooklyn's case) does not qualify.
[Editor Rob: there is definitely a bunch of genetic factors but those environmental factors also play a role.

Alex says on 18/Mar/15
Brooklyn is 5'7 5'6.5 but I don't think beckham is quite 5'11 maybe 5'10.5
TJE says on 18/Mar/15
I'd say he looks about 5'7.5-5'8 in the pic I posted. Brooklyn could reach 5'10 by 21. 5'10.5 isn't impossible, but over that is unlikely to happen.

5'6 max is ridiculous though; He's clearly taller than a guy like Dave Franco.
184.3cm says on 18/Mar/15
His son looks 5'7 there in that pic TJE maybe a fraction more. Can he grow 10cm by 21 ? Not likely but not impossible either.
Height183 says on 17/Mar/15
Brookyln genuinely looks nothing over 5'5.5'' - 5'6''. He is 16 years old now too. Realistically he's got about 2 more years of growth left. Can he reach his Dads height in this short space of time?? I don't know. It's looking unlikely. That's a lot of growth for him to be anywhere near 5'11''.
Sam says on 15/Mar/15
He's looking short there, TJE. In the bottom pic posted by Arch his son could pass for a weak 5'9, other one just 5'8. Depending on how tall he actually is, he might peak nearer Beckham (maybe 179cm or so). Don't know if he will make it to 6' which is pushing it, but who knows.

Any guess on his weight? I saw 162pounds listed, just not sure??? He seem very light/slim.
James says on 9/Mar/15
Even though he tries to copy his dads style and hair 'facially' he looks nothing like becks in my opinion. Or Victoria for that matter.


LOL i mean even gordon ramsey is doing a better job of copying beckhams look than brooklyn is.
Height183 says on 9/Mar/15
Brooklyn is probably 5'6'' on a good day, if he is lucky!
Arch Stanton says on 8/Mar/15
Generally Brooklyn looks 5'8 range now I think Click Here
Arch Stanton says on 8/Mar/15
5 ft 6?? You're having a laugh aren't you Click Here Brooklyn lokos about 5'9 there and Becks might have a bit of footwear advantage. That was taken last year too. I'd say it quite likely he'll end up about David's height if not 6 ft.
Parker says on 2/Mar/15
David was ~5'6 at 16.
Height183 says on 1/Mar/15
Rob, Beckhams Oldest son seems to be stuck in the 5'6'' range and he is like 16. He's got about another 2 years of growth left. Do you think he will make the 5'11'' - 6'0'' range? I don't think he will.
[Editor Rob: depends on his genes, he might have a spurt left in the 16-18 range.]

Andrea says on 22/Feb/15
Sure, Rob. 5'11 is a good listing, but i just wouldn't argue he was over that next to Ibra!
Almost 5 10 says on 21/Feb/15
About 5' 11" is correct. He just got unlucky there and was amongst some genuinely tall/very tall people. He looks 5' 11" alongside most celebrities and footballers of verified heights, doesn't he.
Almost 5 10 says on 21/Feb/15
This is getting like Brad Pitt's page! Soon we'll be hearing, "5' 9" MAX!" That said, I've never seen him look as average height as that. He genuinely looks to have shrunk a good inch or two there! Something doesn't add up...
Almost 5 10 says on 21/Feb/15
Is 5' 10" possible Rob? Could he actually be an occasional lift wearer?
[Editor Rob: I'd say no chance, on the pitch he generally looks around 5ft 11 range much more consistently than how a 5ft 10 guy would look.]
Almost 5 10 says on 21/Feb/15
I wouldn't exactly say "solid proof" that Beckham isn't 5' 11", as we don't know how tall any of those people are. But he honestly looks average height at best there, doesn't he! I've always thought 5' 11" minimum though for Becks.
Andrea says on 20/Feb/15
Rob, do you think he might be 179.5 after a football match? I mean, he might be 180-180.5 on a normal day and dip to 179.5 after a football match, like you said on the Ibra's page!
Btw, he generally looks 5.5 inches shorter than Ibra in photos, sometimes even 6-7 inches shorter but i guess photos on football fields aren't the best to judge height...
[Editor Rob: he could dip a little below for sure, but generally I think he looks a decent 5ft 11er.]

MD says on 2/Feb/15
Taking him more than 0.5" below his currently listed height is really out of the question. The proof showing around 5'11" greatly outstrips whatever other exceptions people are able to find.
Llen49 says on 31/Jan/15
Click Here Click on this article If you scroll down to the second pic down. Marco Verrati is listed at 5 foot 5 and beckham is listed at 5ft 11. In that pic beckham and Verrati are near enough the same height. Beckham is not a 5ft 11 man. No chance.
high and low says on 29/Jan/15
Seeing pictures of him leaving a spin class (exercise bike) he looks no more than 5'9 barefoot unless all the women/girls he walked past where giants. I have never seen a 5'11 guy look that short.
david says on 19/Jan/15
181-182 cm
London Boy says on 2/Jan/15
Just watch all the downgraders cry "5' 10" MAX!" When you take footwear disadvantage into account, he would still be about 5' 11". I used to think 181 cm minimum for 'Goldenballs', but there are more photos emerging that suggest he's 5' 11" flat.
Husbanator says on 31/Dec/14

guy on the right is 6'3". both are most likely wearing the same footwear
Gx79 says on 25/Dec/14
Rob do u think he is 5'11 1/2
[Editor Rob: I think he can at times look a strong 5ft 11, other times I think right around 5ft 11. Maybe an honest 5ft 11 guy at times with good posture can look taller. Although with Tony Parker he looks a good 3 inches at least smaller, although with less sneakers. Parker claimed on his site years ago to be 186cm.]

There's no point of Fanboys on here trying to prove me ''wrong'' by posting recent pictures of Beckham and Ferguson together. Ferguson is in his 70's today and no doubt has lost height.

I haven't met him as such but when he played for utd he used the same dry cleaners I used to use ( bridge street Manchester, spurious link I know! ) I am 5ft 11 and he is taller than me and in any foot wear also. Not by much but if you met him and he told you he was six foot you would believe him.

RoB says on 14/Nov/14
After seeing a bunch of videos in which beckham appears next to prince william and others I must say this guy is a legit 5"9.5 or maybe 5"10 MAX!! A legit 5"11 up to 6 feet WITH SHOES would not appear the way that he did. I am 5"11 or 5"11.5 on good morning out of bed and 1.84cm with shoes and I do not look like he did next to a 1.91cm guy...

He's 5'11" 180.34cm... self-professed by the man himself.

Rob, do you think 179cm is impossible for Beckham? Sometimes to me, he doesn't look like a legit 5'11'' guy.
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't go under 5ft 11 for him, I doubt he'd really measure at worst much at all under 5ft 11 mark, he may hold near enough that mark most of the afternoon/evening.]

I really think he is 181 cm, I'd be surprised if he measured 180 flat in the afternoon/evening.

Beckham is an average height man these days, but his proportions and slimness make him look 6ft1. I mean I felt small at Beckhams weight (72kg) and I'm 5ft9.5.

Amaze says on 15/Sep/14
rob 75kg is 11.8 stone, so in that 2004 book he was nearly 12 stone, 10 stone is 64kg and 11 is 69, was that listed wrong? yeah he probably is 74kg or 11.5 stone now
[Editor Rob: we don't know which of the figures the editor put in the book. Generally I would have said since they put him with 10st 13lbs first and then the (75kg) in brackets, that the stone/lbs figure was the weight he was during playing career.]
Max says on 15/Sep/14
Nope, go check their site now, they have him 187cm, which clearly isn't his height, so that's the point im making, the clubs website isn't very accurate.

@185 bro im telling that is a very old stat, and literally the only one, nowhere else has him below 183cm, and just remember places real madrid have benzema listed 187cm 181cm is too little, even from looking at him from a tv screen he doesn't look that
Height181 says on 27/Aug/14
Frank Lampard is 6'0'' minimum. My friend is a solid 5'10'' guy and said Frank was 2 - 3 inches taller than him, when he met him. At least 6'0'' for Frank.

Luis Figo height in all club wish he was playing he was listed at 1m80 and in all site he s 1m80 , in this pic beckham look 1cm max maybe so i think david height is realy 1m80-1m81 case closed :)
johnmarco says on 22/Aug/14
Well i'd go with what rob says, 183cm for frank lampard. The probably just rounded off the fractions he had after 183cm. And david beckham is shorter than superfrank, a full inch. So beckham is no taller than 5'11
Bran says on 22/Aug/14
Rob, you met Lampard ?, and what do you mean by near 6ft?; 5ft11.5-6ft ?, i think if anything he's abit over 6ft...
[Editor Rob: briefly, he could look 6ft range, I've measured 2 guys exactly 6ft (well 6ft 1/8th on the stadiometer) and would say he looked similar]
Max says on 21/Aug/14
@185 bro lampards not 181cm, he's 183cm at least, he's a tall player.
As for david beckham, 181cm seems right for him, looking at pictures with him and luis figo beckham looked the same height or maybe a fraction taller. Becks is 180cm and change. Solid 5'11
johnmarco says on 21/Aug/14
@1.85 i have met him, and i am 182cm, he was taller than me, and nowhere has him 181cm, show me where has that, i'd love to see that

Rob, we could be undercooking him a small fraction here. He looks more 181 cm compared with other footballers of known heights. Also, Robbie Williams isn't 1 inch taller than Becks.
avi says on 17/Aug/14
5'10 range guy I think after looking more at pics of him

@johnmarco
I haven't - at any time - downgraded Ronaldo or Bale. If you're trying to make a point, don't lie. I don't know who you are you are and don't believe you've met Lampard, if you have, I don't believe you were able to estimate his height to the nearest cm. He's listed as 1.81 m by Chelsea. I really don't care for a loose comment from Harry Redknapp, if that's how you estimate height, you're opinion is invalid.

@MarcusTheSwede
We were discussing Lampard's height to gauge Beckham's. This is one of the ways this forum works.
Andrea says on 11/Aug/14
Dmeyer, i reinvite you to see him with Ibra, who has been measure 194 :)
He can look more 179 than 180 with him!
Dmeyer says on 11/Aug/14
Probably got measured 180.4cm after a game his very low and is 181cm on a easy day
kyle says on 10/Aug/14
Becks is a strong 5'11, xabi alonso was an inch taller when they met a couple weeejs ago for the peace cup, i'd say becks is a fraction over 180cm(180.3cm)
Spirit Level says on 10/Aug/14
He's as close to 181 cm, in my opinion. I'd list him at that.

@1.85m you comment here a lot and downgrade everyone, ronaldo, bale etc. i've actually met frank lampard and he's 183-184cm, strong 6footer, and he was always listed 6feet on the chelsea website. Harry redknapp even said in an interview "he's grown to be a very built player, he's over 6feet"

What was so funny? There's countless others but I haven't got all day. His listing looks pretty perfect to me. Unless you have some other evidence that isn't some terrible hearsay. Rob says he looked near 6 feet, it's possible he could be 1-2 cm off.

Rob how tall do you think frank lampard is? 181cm range?
[Editor Rob: I thought he looked near 6ft in person!]
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 27/Jul/14
@Height181
Lampard is officially listed at 1.81 m (Chelsea website - most credible listing), no chance he's any higher than this. For me Lampard is a 1.80 m man. Beckham is really around 5'10" but famous enough to be listed as a 6-footer.
Andrea says on 5/Jul/14
Dmeyer, just look at him with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who's supposed to have been measured 194... You still think he might be over 180?

Jackman looks around 15 st yeah, but over that does seem higher than expected. He's 6'2" and train pretty heavily. If you look at him he trains his legs pretty hard too, the full body, and muscle weighs more than fat. He's naturally skinny though and if he didn't train I suspect he'd be 180 tops.

AD says on 17/Apr/14
We know Becks and Robbie Williams are extremely close in height... 1cm if that, Olly Murs is 5'9" as a fact as someone I know who is 5'9" met him and had a photo with him... they are exactly the same height in the photo... all footage of Robbie and Olly together show that Robbie is at least 2" taller than Olly if not 2.5"(they wear similar footwear)...so with Becks being the same height as Robbie he's also going to be at least 2 inches taller than Olly.

The problem with the statistic profiles in books is that whoever is putting the book together (this will not be Becks himself) will just use the copy and paste from his profile compiled when he went pro at Man U (he was 17 then) ...if it's something that's 'from his own mouth' then I remember a quote from him in the same book which read 'the growth spurt that took me to six foot came much later' ...just making the point that the 180cm stat isn't what he actually penned, just purely whoever manages compiling the book will do it as research from the Man U archives.
Paul177 says on 15/Jan/14
181 cm is as possible as 180 cm, i.e: 180.5 cm - so this listing is accurate. Just look at him alongside any footballer with a verified height listing.

Jason says on 21/Dec/13
@ c-mo175cm-night
I saw your post. There is no context to that photo, but they look close to eye level with each other... Clooney slightly shorter at probably 179cm. (I actually think Clooney is more like 177cm) I might give Becks 181cm, but that still does not explain his autobiographical claim of 180cm. Anyone asserting he's taller needs to explain this. Otherwise there is no merit to a higher claim.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Dec/13
This could be close. No not under it. Might still be a fraction over like 181cm
Jason says on 17/Dec/13
To all doubters of 180cm, you have to go with the published proofs. First of all, if ManU measured him at 5'10.5" at 20yrs old there is no way he grew... Becks was NOT a late bloomer. Secondly, why in the world would he state that he's 180cm in his biography (Both Feet on the Ground -- PAGE 379) if he were taller? If anything he would have exaggerated up a centimeter. Becks has exceptional posture and a lean torso, making him appear taller than his actual height. The proof is in the publishing... his own biography!
Bosnia says on 14/Dec/13
Beckham is taller than Michelle Obama so he is about 181-182 cm.

he must be taller because if he is 180cm then clooney is what ?

Clooney is 177cm = a strong 5ft9/weak 5ft10. That would make Beckham 180 to 181cm which seems about right.

Iverson is a typical guy that is between 5ft10 and 5ft11, who prolly claims 6ft, since lol everyone lies about their height.
MD says on 8/Dec/13
Almost forgot to mention that even if there is reports Allen Iverson was measured at 6'0", for whatever reason, they measure height in the NBA during the draft season with and without shoes. If you go to NBA draftexpress, you'll see that they take those two measurements, as well as armspan, etc...Allen Ivereson, though, was in the league so long ago you're likely not going to find his measurements, there.
MD says on 8/Dec/13
Allen Iverson was billed at 6'0" in the NBA. I don't ever recall hearing that that was his measurement, and really, he's somewhere in between 5'10" and 5'11" (he's listed as being 5'11", here, BTW).

Do you think he might wear lifts rob?

Rob, Beckham was 182 cm on this site and first you downgraded him to 181 cm and finally to 180 beacuseof his book. Why did you downgraded him in the first place from 182 to 181 ? Did you see a picture where he looked shorter or?
[Editor Rob: he just went the half inch to 5ft 11 from 11.5, to go with his own height in his book.

The Exorcist says on 6/Dec/13
@MD:

Thanks for clearing that up! Now I understand. :)
JJ says on 5/Dec/13
definite 182, probably 183.
MD says on 5/Dec/13
Exorcist, maybe I need to explain my comment further. It's hard enough to judge the height of people within two inches of each other in photographs, let alone when one person is considerably shorter of taller than the other, because that ends up excerbating the difficulties (angles, differences in head sizes, angles, etc...) you find in photographs of folks even very close in height.

I didn't mean to imply you couldn't tell anything from the photo you posted, but with Beckham being so closely narrowed down in height (I do believe this is very close to his actual height if not the actual height, itself), it gets to where we need even more and better evidence if he's to be brought down even a centimeter further, and that's going to be hard when comparing him to someone like Lennox Lewis, who is so much taller, and particularly if the angles and such are not spot on.

Again, didn't mean any offense, and sorry if I was short with you.
The Exorcist says on 4/Dec/13
@MD:

It was the only picture I could find of the two on the Internet...and I wouldn't say it was a bad one. Yes, you can't see the footwear and the camera position favors Lewis. But that's not the important part! The important part is that Beckham is AT LEAST an inch under Lewis' eye!

At the same function, Lewis had a photo with Bruce Willis. Now this photo is very similar to the one he had with Beckham, as you can see. And you can also see that Willis, who I believe to be a legit 5'11", looks higher than Beckham did against Lewis and with a more relaxed posture as well.

I'm 181 cm but I never looked that tall even next to 6 ft 1 guys. I wonder how they come up with 6 ft listings in Gallaxy, Henry is on his standard 188 cm listing but on Espn site, Beckham is 6 ft and Henry 6 ft 1 and when lookong their pictures on the pitch in USA I was surprised that Thierry isnt much taller than Becks.

This listing is better than the 5'11.5" listing he used to have, but I still think his 5'11" claim is 0.5" too high. He's just rounding up his actual height of 5'10.5" to the next full inch.

David Beckham 5'10.5" (179cm)

If Beckham is 180, Timberlake must be 178 lol. and Timberlake is listed as 182 here. This listing is plain wrong.

Rob, I just saw that that Beckham posted picture on fb with few brasilian players, including Thiago Silva and one picture where Becks and Silva are standing next to each other alone. Thiago Silva is listed 183 cm and in first photo he is taller maybe 1 cm but in the other they are same height, maybe Becks even taller. They have similar footwear. For me, Becks is for sure taller than 180 cm and I never saw 2 inch difference between him and Zidane and Ronaldo (Brasilian) never had more han 1 cm on Becks.
Vibram says on 12/Nov/13
Beckham was measured 5ft10.5 (179cm) in 1995 age 20 by Man UTD physicians. He might of grown 1/2 an inch more as he said his feet grew until age 24.

Interesting pictures @AD. He does look just one cm shorter than Robbie.
AD says on 1/Nov/13
OK ..I know that most people seem to have a thirst for downgrading, but here is a reason why downgrading Becks could be wrong: someone I know to be 5'9" had their photo with Olly Murs and is exactly the same height (he is listed as that on here also). Photos I see of Robbie Williams with Olly show Robbie quite clearly near the 6ft mark:
Click Here
The photos of Robbie and Becks together (barefoot) for the Unicef promo show them the same height:
Click Here
The height difference between Robbie and Olly is clearly more than 2 inches and as Becks is the same height surely he's nearer to 182cm or even 6ft?

I agree with kevin and Bakel. He never looked 2 inches shorter than Zidane and Ronaldo, so probbably 181 cms seems more acurate.
Pascal 5 10 says on 31/Oct/13
He's definitely a standard 180 cm guy. Like most people he can look half an inch taller at times, due to footwear differences and that.

One thing I do wonder is if he ever slips a sneaky half inch lift into his footwear? I mean, a good looking guy with an image like Beckham obviously does everything to look his best. What do you think Rob?
Bakel says on 30/Oct/13
He is more than just 180cm come on! Just look at pictures with 176cm Rooney.
Do you see 4cm here between him and 184cm Lampard (same posture + same footwear)?

Hi Rob, I know you pride your site on accuracy and only make changes (downgrades) when concrete evidence is advanced. With that in mind, I have taken the liberty of adding the excerpt from "Both Feet on the Ground" -- his autobiography released August 2003 when he was 28 years old. In the "Personal Summary" page 379 of 401 he lists his full name, birthday, parents and sisters names, date of marriage, wife's name, sons' names, then his height and weight. It states Height: 71in (180cm) Weight: 167lb (75kg). This is EXACTLY what it says on page 379. If he were taller than 180cm why wouldn't he indicate that? I feel this is unequivocal evidence that he is 180cm and therefore I see no reason why he is listed at 182cm. I would be curious to read any contrary arguments to something this precise/deliberate (and in his own words) that sold thousands of copies worldwide. If anything he would have exaggerated his height up a few cm. Thx.
[Editor Rob: I think it is probably the best value to give him.]
-- says on 4/Oct/13
so i ran across this site n seen all these people GUESS. David Beckham is 5'10 (solid, no more no less). He use to be all over LA area,I actually got to shake his hand, he was cool about it. Im 6'0 even and i had 2 inches on him, i had sandles on he had thinner laced shoes. He looked kinda taller from further away but once i was right there he wasnt really. just look at him with barack obama who is "roughly" 6'1. or with robbie keane hes liked at 5'9 (which hes not) hes 5'7-5'8 tops. And wayne rooney is NOT 5'9 either

You guys serious about the weight? I was actually arguing that he looks heavier than that, now. It's funny, because he doesn't look that lean, to me. He has a fairly average, athletic build.

Seriously? I'd say somebody like Frank Lampard had an average athletic build. Beckham has a torso like a pancake, not quite as extreme as Tommy Lee but close. Very thin arms and chest.

He's a 180 cm guy. I don't know about 75 kg though, he seems very lean.

11 stone 8? Seems about right for today but he was once 147 pounds in his earlier playing days. 11 stone range is still really skinny for a guy near 6 ft. I'd have guessed 155-160 pounds, 75 kg is 162 lbs.

This looks correct seeing he has an easy 2 inches on a 5'8.75-5'9 Luke Perry on video.

Dean 5ft 9.25 says on 25/Jul/13
Solid above average, sometimes tallish. below 179 he'd have that average Daniel Craig look..above 181 he'd have a tallish look.

Id bet 180-180.5cm night(solid 5ft 11). but within 179-181 range is worth a debate.

Well, why don't you list him at 5'11.25 (181 cm) then?
Bakel says on 8/Apr/13
Plus the guy has hundreds of pictures on the net with others celebs, and he almost always looks his height. During his career, he has been measured 181cm(LA Galaxy) 182cm (Real Madrid, LA Galaxy) and 183cm (PSG), so 182cm is a fair listing.

Alan Shearer is NOT 5'10.

Back in 2007 I stood next to him in the urinals at a charity evening dinner fundraiser. I was working at the hotel in Newcastle serving the guests dinner.

If wiggins is 6'3 parker then Becks is 5'11 max! His hair is thick and his actual head is about his eye level(4.5 inch).

For me Becks cant be 179cm or lower but he could be a weak 180cm.

Between 179.5-181 at night is his range.

Look at pictures with him and zidane who is 6'1.Beckham looks 1 1/2-2 inches shorter.I say 5'11-5'11 1/2 at very most.Becsause of his athletic build and hair he looks taller in pics.IMO he is 5 11.Ih he was 5 10 ot would be a pretty visible difference between him and zidane.And its not.5'11

The 5'10" claims for Beckham are pretty ridiculous. He's about one of the best examples of a legit 5 ft 11 man you can get. He might not quite measure 182cm later in the day but anything under 180cm is just not true.

i think it's time the 182 listing is downgraded. beckham is a max 181 man. here he is next to a bare foot sergio ramos who is rightly listed on the madrid website at 183. becks has a soccer boot advantage against a 183 man who is barefoot!!!!!! using common sense one could deduct that a true 182 man in
boots would look 185 next to a 183 man who is bare foot. that isnt happening in this pic
i would say 179 would be more accurate for beckham

Becks is the same height as Robbie Williams as we've seen in that barefoot shoot ...perhaps 1cm smaller at the most. Robbie is listed on here as 6'0" with photos to illustrate it. He's also clearly 2 or 3 inches taller than 5'9" Sebastian Coe in the pictures below. He very much seems around an inch and a half less than 6'1.5" Jonathan Ross.... 5'11.5 is a very accurate listing with all the evidence. The 5'10" guesses are way off!

Alan Shearer at 5'10 is absurd.
................................................................................................................................................................

I'd say 5' 8" or 5' 9" is absurd for Shearer, but 5' 10" certainly isn't. Teddy Sheringham, who I've met is in the 5' 11" range, not the full 6' 0" (183 cm) he is often listed. Shearer is at least 1 inch shorter than him. Shearer is also the same height as legit 178 cm Andy Cole, BUT taller than Roy Keane who's also listed at 178 cm - but looks 5' 9.5" to me.

Someone commented on a fan page saying: "Shearer is not as tall as you'd imagine". The fan said he was 5' 11" and that "Shearer was clearly shorter than me, maybe 5' 8" or 5' 9".

I can't believe that low for 1 second. The fan may actually be closer to 6' 0" than 5' 11" flat, who knows!

I personally reckon Shearer's either 5' 10.25" (178 cm) or 5' 10.5" (179 cm)... not above that surely.

@dean I would probably be a shade under 183 at night or maybe the same? I am not sure.

From far away Becks looked around my height, but when I got closer he was slightly shorter, although he had his football boots on. I think for Beckham 5'10.5-5'11 is about right. He is kind of a hard one to pin down a little bit..

Mr Killer Shrimp, I can assure you that David Beckham is a 5'11 guy. He was listed at that height in 1996, when he began to be regular in the starting lineup of the Manchester Utd. Years later when he became famous, they pumped his height to 6'.

5'11 (180 cms) for Beckham, no more, no less.
