"Weight: 10st 13lb (75kg)"
75KG IS 11st 8lb
amateur mistake
[Editor Rob: which is why the [sic] is after it, because that is how the mistake is in the book.]

@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.
Spirit Level says on 24/Aug/14
Looked 181 cm in 'United - Class of '92'.
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 22/Aug/14
@johnmarco
Getting repetitive now, was listed 1.81 m at Chelsea.

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
Spirit Level says on 20/Aug/14
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
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 16/Aug/14
@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.
MarcusTheSwede says on 9/Aug/14
Please stick to the topic David Beckhams height! If you want to discuss Lampards or youre grandmas height go to That page.
johnmarco says on 9/Aug/14
@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.
James B says on 28/Jul/14
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?
Dmeyer says on 28/Jun/14
Looking at him with tom Cruise. 181cm us closer
Dmeyer says on 21/Jun/14
Rob i think becks was measured 5'11 1/8in or 11.25 and just claims 11 he dosnt seem Like a 180cm flat Guy , he realy looks 0.5-1cm taller than travolta who stands as tall as pissible , travolta shrinked but he aint lÚss than 181cm.

I'm not seeing 5cm between him and Ronaldo. More like 3-4. Strong 181.
Almost 5 10 says on 20/May/14
He's right in between 180 and 181 cm, in my opinion. 5' 11" is correct

Click Here in this pic with jeter an arod he looks pretty short compared to them but then again their like what 6'3 or 6'4
Appe4 says on 13/May/14
This si a good photo of Him with min 186 kaka (I met kaka and for me he is 186/187). I think 181 is the best shot for david, I don t think he is only 179-180 Click Here
johnny says on 12/May/14
I think he is definetly a strong 179 to 180 good call Rob spot on I feel
jamesfitpal says on 11/May/14
I've met him in los angeles he looks 5'11 min and 6' max, id give him a 181.5

Arch Stanton says on 27/Apr/14
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.


Tall people do pull of looking better with more muscle than shorter people do

Arch you would never think hugh jackman weighed 15 stone 6 would you?
Andrea says on 24/Apr/14
Rob, do you think he looks 5'11 next to Ibra?
I agree with this listing, because he generally looks around 5'11 but just google him and Ibra, he can look more than just 5.5 inches shorter in many photos...
[Editor Rob: he can look 6 inch smaller. There's not that many good side by side shots (or off field) of them.]
Arch Stanton says on 24/Apr/14
James says on 26/Dec/13
Guys how much do you think beckham weighs these days?

Somewhere around 160 I reckon. He was weighed at 158 lbs at Paris I think.
Arch Stanton says on 24/Apr/14
Rob is there really no photograph for him? LOL. he's one of the most photographed people in the world, you'd think there'd be a photo available!
[Editor Rob: there was one i downloaded but hadnt put it up till just now!]
Arch Stanton says on 24/Apr/14
He looks barely shorter than Ricky Martin! One of the few guys he looks a bit pudgy faced next too though! I agree that nearer a flat 5'11 is more likely than 182.
James B says on 24/Apr/14
How tall would you say he looks in comparison rob?
[Editor Rob: maybe 3cm]

@Steven P
Rounding.
Steven P says on 18/Apr/14
180cm exactly. His OWN WORDS within his autobiography. How can anyone deny this admission??
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.
James B says on 17/Apr/14
Will smith is standing on lower ground in the photo

Go look at the rest of the evidence. You are posting some bad photos and making some really bad estimates.

182 CM at least!

@james B wayne rooney is a 5'9 guy! Lol 176cm max
James B says on 7/Apr/14
Yeah at times he looks 5'10ish in pics with Rooney
kenny says on 5/Apr/14
he dose look a gud 5'10 an a half his standing up aginst rooney who is measured at 5'9 look a inch taller then rooney so 5'10 is about right of course I can see how people view him at 6'0 as james stated he has a very slim frame so he looks a lot taller then he appears
John says on 2/Apr/14
I can easily buy a flat 5'11" for Beckham. He looks 180cm exactly.
chrisssss says on 31/Mar/14
Solid 5'11 with great posture 180.3cm(exact 5'11)

He's 5' 11". No doubt about it.

The more I see Beckham the further away from six feet he looks. 5'10 1/2" for me.
James B says on 11/Mar/14
Messi himself could be 168cm

I'd say becks is 5'10 1/2-5'11 range
Paul177 says on 18/Feb/14
5' 11" flat is his absolute low.
JAJ says on 18/Feb/14
About 4 inch taller than Messi. So he's 5'10.5" 179 cm.
Dane says on 14/Feb/14
Here is Beckham next to Nicky Butt (listed as 178).
And he looks a couple of inches shorter than Wes Brown (listed as 185).

he is 5ft11 to 5ft11.25, 6ft0 when he became famous haha.
AD says on 30/Jan/14
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.
Appe4 says on 7/Jan/14
Have you seen the last photo with beckham and torres standing together? What do you think about torres height...?
Johnnyboy says on 27/Dec/13
He looks to be about 5'10.5 to 5'11. That looks about right. He's not 6'0 as some posts claim.
James says on 26/Dec/13
Guys how much do you think beckham weighs these days?
TripleA says on 25/Dec/13
@Silent d - Agreed. He would never be taller than his self-proclaimed height.

Clooney is 177cm and Beckham is 180cm.
Lorne says on 22/Dec/13
Yeah, looks a strong 5'11 for sure. If he is just 180, Pitf looks nearer 179...
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
c-mo175cm-night says on 20/Dec/13
@ Jason

read my posts then

if he is 180cm then clooney is what ? lol
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!
Rhonda says on 15/Dec/13
Rob you quoted his weight as 10st13 which is 69.4Kg, 75Kg is 11st11. Even if that is a direct quote from a book, I can't see why you included it if it is wrong.
[Editor Rob: I should put [sic] beside it]
Bosnia says on 14/Dec/13
Beckham is taller than Michelle Obama so he is about 181-182 cm.
linda says on 13/Dec/13
ive stood next to him and hes about 5.10
Vibram says on 13/Dec/13
c-mo175cm-night says on 6/Dec/13
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.
truth says on 8/Dec/13
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).

but other times looks a weak 5ft11 and other times a weak 5ft9 such as here: Click Here

Do you think he might wear lifts rob?
Bosnia says on 6/Dec/13
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.

True rob but his very slim frame can make him look taller. Do u agree?
[Editor Rob: it can be an advantage yeah]
Bosnia says on 3/Dec/13
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.
James says on 2/Dec/13
would you say 179cm is impossible for beckham rob?
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't want to argue it, I think arguing in the 5ft 11 range is easier as he generally looks that.]
Bosnia says on 2/Dec/13

Rob, did Beckham wore lift here? He looks taller than Katie H. and she is in high heels and he is pretty close to Will Smith even though Smith has quite thin sneakers. It is really interesting...
[Editor Rob: might just be standing in the ideal part of the photo (the photographer is above their heads so being middle and a little further away might help?)]

dmeyer says on 17/Nov/13
Look about same as Pitt on Ellen Pitt realy is 5'11
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 15/Nov/13
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)
Dom says on 14/Nov/13
If Beckham is 180, Timberlake must be 178 lol. and Timberlake is listed as 182 here. This listing is plain wrong.
Bosnia says on 13/Nov/13
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.

Also, the new England sensation Andros Townsend is no way 6ft / 183cm!. he is 5ft8 > weak 5ft9 tops. Look at this picture with 6ft4 Chris Smalling: Click Here
Joe joe says on 6/Nov/13
I haven't been on the site for a bit of time So I've just seen that Beckham has finaly been down graded. What made you do the right thing Rob? Now for Vin diesel

Not the best pictures, because they aren't standing in line, but with a 6'1" Chris Hoy to the far right and with a just under 6'3" Bradley Wiggins to the far left:

Not sure how accurate the heights are for Hoy and Wiggins (that doesn't even look like him), but it's basically what they've been listed at for their careers.
Bosnia says on 2/Nov/13
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?
Bosnia says on 1/Nov/13
During the medical at Real Madrid in 2003 they discovered that his one leg is bit shorter.....

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)?
Click Here
He is 181 at worst and more likely 182/183.
kevin says on 29/Oct/13
to be honest i think just 180cm is too low for him. 181cm would be perfect
glynny 182 says on 27/Oct/13
5.11 180 is defo more near the truth for sure rob good call to down grade him never quiet looked a 182 5.11.5 like myself althou he could be 181 for sure an lookes it at times. you agree rob?
Wenger says on 18/Oct/13
yep 5'11 guy for sure
MD says on 18/Oct/13
Finally, we have it write. He is a solid 5'11".

Well done, Rob. Look at him with Ibrahimovic, he struggles to look 5'11 with him. 5'11 is for sure closer to the truth
Pascal 5 10 says on 17/Oct/13
Finally. This is bang on now! About as classic a 180 cm guy as you will see.
John says on 15/Oct/13
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.]

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
cole says on 24/Sep/13
He's a solid 5'11 flat, possibly close to 181 cm.
Arch Stanton says on 19/Sep/13
MD says on 2/Sep/13
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.
Parker says on 15/Sep/13
5'9 for Beckham? Utter tosh

Isn't 10st 13lb, 69 kg? The height sounds spot on though - 5' 11". NO WAY is he only 5' 9"!
A says on 12/Sep/13
I met him the other night. I am 6' tops. He was a good three inches shorter than me. I would go with the 5'9".
Craig 177 says on 4/Sep/13
10st 13lb ain't 75kg. They've made a mistake there! 69 kg is 10st 13lb...
Arch Stanton says on 2/Sep/13
cole says on 31/Aug/13
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.
cole says on 31/Aug/13

Bakura says on 30/Aug/13
@MD- Well he always gets listed 6'-6'1" He's looking an inch taller than Beckham there so the former's more likely.
Balrog says on 30/Aug/13
Yeah MD, Rob put that quote but Beckham is still listed at 5'11.5". He was also listed at 180cm before fame, as someone already mentioned. And I agree he is not 75kg. He's a pretty thin and lean guy.

TheSmileyFacedBalloon says on 9/Aug/13
@Balrog
He does look 5'11" a lot of times but is consistently listed at 6' in most places. The only time I've seen an official listing of 5'11" was here: Click Here

When did he claim that height btw?
Viper says on 9/Aug/13
Original says on 12/Mar/13
He's measured in Manchester in 1995 with 5'10.75", 180 cm. So 5'10.75 to 5'11 is confirmed, not shorter.

This looks correct seeing he has an easy 2 inches on a 5'8.75-5'9 Luke Perry on video.
Balrog says on 1/Aug/13
We can't see Cristiano's footwear.

Beckham himself claimed 5'11'' (180 cm).

Looking 5'11.5" next to 6'1" Ronaldo...
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.
Gringo says on 25/Jul/13
I am 184cm and stood next to David in 2001 . I was surprised he was almost as tall as me so would agree he is 182 or very near.
Montgomery95 says on 23/Jul/13
My mother met him and one hundred percent guarantees he is 5'9 5'10, no where near 6'0

Looking tallish here next to the other old Man U guys. Looks around 6 ft here in my opinion, even accounting for curb standing.
Craig 177 says on 8/Jul/13
At the Olympics, he had 3 cm on Liam Gallagher - who is no less than 177 cm. I think 180 cm would be spot on for 'Goldenballs'.
Harrie64 says on 3/Jul/13
My mother (she's 5 7) met him, got his autograph said the idea of him being 6 ft made her lol 5 9 she said 5 10 maximum and thin.

My niece used to work at Everton FC and she had her picture taken with Beckham barefoot, she's 5ft 7 and he was only an inch or two taller at most- 5'11 my arse!!
Arch Stanton says on 15/Apr/13
[Editor Rob: why is Gazza listed 5ft 9.25 and not the 5ft 9 in his biography? I think beckham is a fraction over 5ft 11, whether it's a small fraction or he's more 5ft 11.5 earlier in the day and drops nearer 5ft 11 at night, that's why we have discussion about heights on here ;)]

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.
Bakel says on 8/Apr/13
Average Joe says on 21/Mar/13
He is 5'10, 178cm. 179cm max.

Giggs is suppose to be around 179cm, Becks is barely any taller while having the advantage of studs while Giggs is in socks...

Downgrade!


--> Nop man you're wrong, there is a bit of perspective distortion in this pic, giggs is standing closer to the camera. I can see that if they stood face to face beckham would have a good edge on him.

Jordan ayew is listed at 5'11 and half, has been listed lower before. He is about 5'11 max and edges beckham. Beckham is in the 5'10 range as most of other user comments estimate.

Rob would u agree that 181cm is probably best fit for David given that prince William had 4 inches on him? You yourself originally thought 181cm was more accurate.
[Editor Rob: 181 could be it]

He needs a downgrade to 5-11 even. Too much evidence that suggests he's closer to 5-10 than 6 ft.

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.

Shearer is 5'9 MAX. Absolute maximum.

Still looks like a strong guy for his age. A real England legend.

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.
Zein says on 9/Jan/13
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
