Ladies Heel Heights Explained

This page gives examples of different styles of women's heels/shoes and the actual height they give (rather than advertised height). I measured these heel heights using a girl with UK shoe size 5 and 6 (US Size 7). If you have bigger feet then you would typically get a few mm more for each example.
The truth is, with women's heels, many don't give what you might imagine. Its all to do with the pivot point of your foot. If you measure yourself barefoot and then go on your tip-toes, you'll probably find you can get close to 3 inches of height. So to get 4 inches of actual height you need a high angle shoe and a platform at the front that is at least 1 inch.

Here is a video talking about heel height in more detail...and also below this video are examples of how much actual height each type of heel size gives the average ladies foot.

Large Platform Heel: 10.8cm (4.25 inches)

The platform on this heel is a solid 1.5 inches.
Black Platform Heel: 9.9cm (3.9 inches)

The platform on this heel is a 1.25 inch style.
Wedge Platform Sandal: 8.8cm (3.47 inches)

The platform on this is around 1 and 3/8ths inch.
Black/Silver Smaller Platform Heel : 8.4cm (3.3 inches)

The platform on this heel is in 0.6-0.7 inch range.
Wine Suede Heel: 8cm (3.15 inches)

The platform on this heel is in 0.6 inch range.
Light Pink Smaller Platform Heel : 7.7cm (3.03 inches)

The platform on this heel is in 0.5-0.6 inch range.
Silver standard Heel: 7.35cm (2.9 inches)

The platform on this heel is a typical flat style around 0.3 inches.
Red Boot : 6.6cm (2.6 inches)

The platform on this heel is in 0.5-0.6 inch range.
Thigh Boot: 6.5cm (2.56 inches)

A typically average type of heel.

Black Boot: 6cm (2.36 inches)

An average boot size with barely any thickness at the front/platform area.

A heel that would be in the low-medium range.
Small Heel: 5.1cm (2 inches)

An average boot size with barely any thickness at the front/platform area.
Small Clarks Sandal: 4.8cm (1.9 inches)

A sandal that gives near enough 2 inches.
Small Clear Sandal: 4.6cm (1.8 inches)

Example of heel that gives just under 2 inches.
Thick Ladies Shoe: 4.3cm (1.7 inches)

An example of a shoe that gives nearly 1.75 inches in thickness.
Low Ladies Heel: 4cm (1.57 inches)

Example of heel size that would give just over 1.5 inches of height.

Hi Rob, my gf is 165cm and I am 168cm approx - what heel height could she wear that wouldn't make her taller than me? Assume I would be wearing (average mens) shoes. Also, how much would a 4 or 5 inch heel actually make her taller? Antony
Editor Rob
If you are in standard shoes then a normal heel could make her look taller than you, a platform heel like with a 1-inch platform that gives 3.5-4 inches is gonna make her look at least 1.5 inches taller.

How much height would this model add if the size is 39?

Editor Rob
Pretty high angle and 3cm platform, I'd expect around 11cm easily enough.
Sheri Waters said on 7/May/22
need understanding. If I needed some shoes with a 3 or 4 inch heel, is that considered the same as heel height?
Editor Rob
Look for Heels that are advertised 4-5 inches to get actual height gain of 3-4 inches.
Mendy said on 22/Jan/22
Hi Rob, how much height will I get if I wear 6 inch heels with a 2 inch platform? The arch is 4 inches. I have a size 6 feet UK size 39 by the way.
Editor Rob
Worth measuring to find out, I'd expect almost 5 inches if it has a 2-inch platform.

This is really a question for the ladies in this site, but how do you wear heels comfortably? It looks like it puts loads of pressure on the toes with no balancing ability. Not a joke question, I genuinely don’t think it looks at all comfortable. I can get why a short woman might wear them (my 5’9 mother wears 2 inch boots around the house) but why would an average height women wear high heels?

At least 180cm range in them, maybe 181. In shoes, your boyfriend should still be taller than yourself in the heeled boots.

Hi Rob, I am 172cm and my husband is 175cm.What is the maximum heel height I could wear without being taller than him?
Editor Rob
If he's wearing a standard shoe, if you bought a heel that gave 2.5 inches, you might start to edge him out slightly. I would stick to around 2.5 if you don't want to look obviously taller.
Engine said on 22/Jun/20
@Bella123 I totally liked the conversation for selecting good pair of heels allowing you to reach that 6'. It is good to see women who want to look and walk tall, irrespective what the opposite sex thinks of it
Bella123 said on 18/Jun/20
Hi rob, thanks again, that’s extremely helpful. One final question please, is that I also found a couple of pairs of boots, which could be an option. Do you think I could get 5 inches extra actual height to get up around the 6ft mark from either of these two please, with their respective heel/platforms? Many thanks again! Click Here
Click Here
Editor Rob
Both those boots look the same height, I'd say 4.75 was quite possible for them, but not a full 5 inches.
Bella123 said on 17/Jun/20
Hi rob, thanks for your help. So around 12cm is the maximum height that those shoes would give? I was hoping to reach 5’11-6ft (A lot of people in my group are at 6ft or over in shoes, so I wanted as much help possible to get near to them, being 168-170cm!). Do you know heel height/platform size I would need for this please? Thanks again!
Editor Rob
If you have a longer foot than normal, you might manage a bit more than 12cm. Like if US9 or something that range. 180 to 181 could then be the range you measure in.

If the platform part were over 7cm nearer 8, then 13-14 is very possible
Lover_thorn3 said on 16/Jun/20
Hey what about heels that claim to offer an extra TEN inches of height? (About 25cm) do you think any heel truly adds that crazy of a difference (i’m 180CM. And i could never imagine being 205CM)
Editor Rob
Some fo the heels lady gaga wear are so enormous and I'm sure a few give 10 inches, maybe some of those a bit more actually.
I'm surprised she's not damaged ligaments wearing them, but maybe she takes care and practiced a lot!
Bella123 said on 16/Jun/20
Hi rob, how much actual height would these shoes add please, it says they have 16cm heel (6.5 inch) with platform? I am 168cm, would I be taller than 180cm person if they were barefoot? Thank you Click Here
Editor Rob
That model might get you near the 180cm (in shoes) should still be a bit taller than yourself in those heels.

Hi Rob. I would be really thankful to you if you give me a answer :))
How much these heels give to the height (shoe size 39.5)?

Xion 5'8 said on 25/Dec/19
My question for Christmas
How much height a woman gains in these cases?

5 inch 2 inch platform 5'6
5 inch 2 inch platform 5'7
4 inch 1.5 inch platform 5'8 girl
3.5 inch, 1 inch platform 5'9 girl
3.5 inch, 1 inch platform 5'10 girl
Editor Rob
The 5 inch with 2 inch platform could potentially give a 4.25 inch worth of height.

The 4 with 1.5 again anywhere between 3 up to 3.5.

But it also can depend on the length of the ladies feet.

Remember big Iona Here managed to get a bit more than 4 inches from the exact same heel that Jenny wore and got just under 4 inches in.

So having a longer foot (Iona is I think 2.5 sizes bigger than Jenny) can mean you get a fraction more height from the same heel.
Katya said on 23/Dec/19

Hi there. Very insightful article. I have a question.

I'm currently 157cm with a UK shoe size of 5-6. I have stiletto heels that are 10cm without a platform,so the front is very flat. What would my height be wearing them?

I'd expect around 165cm range

Rob, I have shoe size 41/42 EU size I guess it's a UK size 8? Can you tell if is it a big, normal or small foot for a height of 5'11?
Editor Rob
You'd expect more 9-10 range for 5ft 11 to 6ft men, 8 is a bit smaller than average for that height.
Vitto said on 5/Oct/19

Redwing said on 4/Oct/19
Hi rob can you measure feet with the measuring tape that we use to measure our biceps and waist?

It's easier using the metal retractable tape and putting it up against a door/skirting board and your heel against it - pretty easy to get a reading of your foot length.

Hi Rob

How tall would a 5ft7 girl be in shoes with a 6” heel with a 3” platform UK size 8?

And a 8.5” heel with a 4” platform?
Editor Rob
The 5ft 7 girl potentially could be 6ft flat in them.
The 8.5 must be extremely high, but there is diminishing returns the higher that angle at the back becomes. I would think over 7 inches in them is possible.

clubber said on 28/Mar/19
I really think you underestimate the height added by heels because Jenny has size 5 feet.

My girlfriend, who wears size 10 and is a bigger girl bone wise, gets pretty close to the heel height.

We've both been measured at the doctor's office and I am legit 4 inches taller than her and when she wears 4 inch heels, we are the same height in the mirror. When she wears 7 inch stripper heels, she becomes about 3 inches taller than me.
Editor Rob
I have mentioned before on this page about longer feet giving a little more than a shorter foot, but all feet have an ankle that doesn't pivot at the very back, but further forward.

LDS said on 20/Feb/19
Very interesting page this one. How many times do you see women say for example "I'm 6 ft tall in these shoes" when all they've done is added the height of the shoe on to their own height. Basic science tells you that's not how it works.
Mimi said on 20/Feb/19
It's weird in platform heels very similar to what Jenny wore (5 inches with 1.3 inch plateu) I get close to 4.25 inches.

Jenny has a size 5UK foot...the longer your foot, the greater the chance of a little fraction more.

I’m 5’11 and 1/4 how tall would I be in 4.25 inch heels?
Editor Rob
If the model was described and measured 4.25 to the highest point of the back of the heel, you might manage to get close to about 3.5 inches inches of actual height - it depends on how much of a platform there is, so you would measure probably over 6ft 2.5.

5ft 8 is quite tall for a women, in Asia 5ft 6 would be tallish. Very tall I'd say is approaching 6ft, in 5ft 11-6ft and 5ft 8-10 range for asians.

That's true for Asian women. Once you get at least 5ft8 you are very tall. I am almost 5ft8 but I wish I was close to 5ft10 barefoot

I would say buy a heel that is advertised at most 3.5 inches. Some described as 4-inch (with very flat front part) might still give 3.2 inches in height, which if he wears a solid 1 inch shoe, means you are roughly same.

Rob this could be a good scheme for a classic stiletto?
heel of 8 cm = makes 7-7.5 cm taller
10 cm = 8-8.5 cm taller
11.5 cm = 8.5-9 cm taller
12 cm = 9 cm taller

It's roughly correct I'd say, but some manufacturers don't always measure the very back correctly. I've seen them be off a fraction!

Hi Rob, I'm actually a guy but this seemed like the most appropriate place to post this for some reason... How much height would a 2cm heel give? Would it be bang on what's advertised, or slightly less?
Editor Rob
the smaller the heel size, the closer to the actual height you will get. Unless the heel slopes like a straight line from the very back to the front...usually 2-3cm heels have the heel part that is kind of the same height all over and then the rest of the shoe slopes a little to the front part which is usually half as thick.

Well, if you want your boyfriend to look a bit taller, I'd use 3-3.5 inch heels. If you wear a platform (like 1.5-2 inch platform) then you will be close in height to him, but still a bit shorter.
Mimi said on 27/Feb/18
Hello Rob. I've finally got my dream Gucci platforms and I can't wait to wear them(they're just a gift from someone😉). How tall would I be? They are described to have a 3inch platform and a 6.5 inch heel and in a big size (9.5) I think you might remember I am bit over 172cm. Do you think I'd be 6ft1 in these?

Editor Rob
They should give you over 5 much? Maybe 1/4-1/2 inch over it.
Mimi said on 13/Feb/18
Rob what is your estimated height gain in these pair of heels. I'm planning to buy one or the other here's the first one

Click Here

And here's the 2nd one

Editor Rob
First one has maybe 1/2 inch platform and high angle, I'd expect close to 3.4-3.5 might be possible, the other one over 4 inches, maybe 4.3 inch range.

Rob, what happened to the page for men's shoes and sneakers? Is it still around here somewhere?
Editor Rob
There was an issue with Google removing it from the search index, and replacing it with a 'cloaked' spammers copy...I had to remove it, though it may return one day.

Rob I am 183cm tall and my girlfriend is 173cm tall. I am wondering how big heels would she have to wear in order to edge me out? Thanks Rob! I Usually wear sneakers in the 2.5-3.5 cm Range and 3 cm dress shoes
Editor Rob
She needs to wear very big heels to do are talking the kind that are described as 6-inch in shops/online, in order that she gets 4.25 - 4.5 inches of actual height....then she will edge you out a little.
engineer said on 26/Jan/18
@Rob, I wonder how many inches in average top knot of hair add to the height in women? 2" to 3"?
Editor Rob
Like a 'Bun' hairstyle...could be 2 or 3 inches yeah.
Mimi said on 21/Jan/18
You might have not read my comments here before Rob but I just want to ask how much will I be taller with a 6 inch platform chunky block heel for my party? I'm 172cm with US 9.5 feet
Editor Rob
You should measure a bit more than 6 feet flat in them, but maybe not as much as 185...183.5-184 may well be possible.
Mimi said on 20/Jan/18
Rob, if Jenny isn't willing to try those extreme platform heels for your new video idea maybe you could wear them since it's men who originally wore heels.😂
Editor Rob
I think I will convince Jenny, before you see me in a high heel video ;)
Sintia said on 19/Jan/18
Hi again Rob, I think I've just figured out. Without any platforms, a girl can only increase her height maximum 7 cm. İn order to look 13-15 cm taller, 8 inch heel with 4 inch platform is a must I guess.

I've made a test with 3 books I set them together combined and their total lenght was 10cm ( 4 inches). I tried to ascend stand on my feet/finger as much as I could and I went from 1,68 (5'6) to 1,85 (6ft1) which is totally 17 cms (7 inches).

4 inches of platform heel or higher is a must in order to be taller like 13-15 cm or more. Do you think am I correct?
Editor Rob
On your tip toes you might get 7cm or 2.75 inches, some women with longer feet could get 3 or a little more.

Of course to get big amounts you need the platform to be 2 or 3 inches.

I might do a video one day showing really big heels and how much they give Jenny, if she agrees.
Sintia said on 19/Jan/18
Hello Rob, I have 17 cm main heel with 7 cm platform in the front. Which means (7 inch main heel and 3 inches platform height)

I've just measured my height with these high heel shoes. I am 1,68 cm (5'6) and I only reached to 1,79-1,80 cm (5'10-5'11) with these high heels. it seems like a girl can only increase around 4 inches(10-12 cm) with highest heels.

its imposibble for me to see 1,83 cm. I am 1,68 cm barefeet. So I think I have to wear like 22-23cm back heel and 10-11 cm platform in order to reach to 1.83 cm. According to calculation.

I saw your comment on ''@dzeneta hamzic's question and she is 5'7 (170cm) and with 4 and 6 inch heel, How can she reach to 6ft1.5 (187cm)? Thats like 17 cm height increase.
Kirk Angel said on 17/Jan/18
Hello, how much height do each of these pair of heels give? (both of the ones on the left). How tall would a 5'6 woman be in each?

Heel 1: Click Here

Heel 2: Click Here
Editor Rob
1 looks half inch or even a little bit more thicker than the number 2...I'd have thought 1 wasn't far off giving the person nearly 4 inches of height, and the number 2 maybe just over 3 inches.
dzeneta hamzic said on 15/Jan/18
How much would a 5'7 girl be with a typical 4 and 6 inch heel

Hi Rob! How tall would my 160 cm girlfriend be with 10 inch heels?
[Editor Rob: they might give near 8-8.5 inches (if described as 10 inches online/in a shop).

So she's probably getting a 7 inch footwear advantage and will suddenly seem like a 5ft 10 girl (assuming you are in 2cm footwear).]

They say 140mm with a 40mm platform. I'm almost 5'10 (176-177cm) but if my girlfriend is basically 5'6 (167cm) would she be my height with these on and me wearing boots? Basically the same right? Thanks!

Hi Rob, I'm 183cm tall and my gf is 165cm. She is used to wearing very high heels, and, for the last year, I've been constantly teasing her telling her that, no matter which heels she wore, I would always be taller than her. She finally got upset and decided to buy these to prove I was wrong: Click Here
These are 10 inch heels with a 6'1/4 platform. To be honest, I'm starting to be a bit worried, although it's just a joke. Is she actually going to be taller than me with those and laugh at me telling me how small I look next to her? How much taller do you think she could be? Or would I still be a little taller?
[Editor Rob: she'll edge you out when wearing such massive heels. ANkle breakers, would never let a women go about in those heels.]

Rob are you still sighlty taller if you leave one heel on one foot and measure?

Tanya said on 16/Oct/17
What heel height is too high for someone (me) that lives heels but can seem to walk in them. Is 3 inches too high for me?
[Editor Rob: up to 2.5 inches might be a safer height, but once you get to 3 and over, your foot is now at a much higher angle, and it means it is more awkward.]
SportsHeight said on 16/Oct/17
Rob, how much height do you think is added when ballet dancers stand en pointe on the very tips of their toes? Typical standing "on toes" makes you go up about 3-3.5 inches, right? How much do you think this adds? One could amusingly argue this is the truest measurement of height: from head to toe.

if my boyfriend's height is 167cm and im 163cm, what will be the type of heel i should buy so that i will be of the same height as him. like how many inch or cm higher?
[Editor Rob: buy an 7-8cm type of heel and you will look similar to him.

A 5cm/2 inch heel won't quite make you look as tall, but 7-8cm or near 3 inch will.]

@Rob: Do you know about how much those common type of slipper flats you see women wear add? I'm sure you know what I mean, but examples would be the type Sigourney Weaver wore in The Year of Living Dangerously, or what Serena Williams was wearing in the recent pics with Sly. Also, what about typical flat sandals? I was assuming the slipper type would add 1/4" range and the sandals maybe a bit more, but it'd be nice to know for sure. Thanks.
[Editor Rob: the ballet type slippers, some can be as thin as 1/4, but I've seen some with a bit of insole (and 1/8-1/4 on the tiny heel part) so it could be nearer to 1/2 inch.]

Hi rob I'm thinking of buying a shoe that measures this Heel Height: 4.9" / 12cm will this hurt my foot

Thanks for answering my questions Rob. 😄
Mimi said on 2/Aug/17
Rob, what do you think is more of a foot torture: a 4.5inch open toe sandal or a 3inch pointed toe pumps?
[Editor Rob: hard to say really, but if the sandal style had some cushioning on the sole it would be easier to walk in...actually, gel cushioning pads for most types of heels are well worth trying to help with comfort]

Elissa said on 26/May/17
Thanks for the excellent video. Have you noticed if any manufacturers change a shoe's platform and heel heights between sizes? I have very long feet and I like the look of thick platforms, but wherever I find them in my size the proportions are way different. A 4" platform on a size 6 shoe looks chunky, boxy, and cute. A 4" platform on a size 11 shoe looks, well, not cute.
[Editor Rob: I have seen this sometimes in men's shoes, the heel on a size 10+ is slightly thicker than 9 and under.

But I can't remember if female heels will have any adjustments...since the moulds for each size are going to be a bit different, maybe they do adjust the height slightly, I will try to have a look at some styles in the future to confirm this!]

Hello! Im buying these from a clothing sharing website. The website where she got it claims the heel to be 4.5 inch, but doesnt mention the platform. When I asked the private seller for the measurements she said the heel was 3 inch and the platform was 1 inch. Im buying a US size 6, so it is possible because the size is small, the heel is shorter, or did she mis-measure... Also, Im 4ft 11inch. What is the true height of this heel in a size six for someone as short as me? Thank You! link: Click Here

GM said on 1/Dec/16
In typical heels, would a 5'4 girl stand taller or roughly the same height as a 5'8 guy? Assume that the guy is wearing dress shoes as well. How about a 5'5 girl?
[Editor Rob: GM, a 5ft 5 girl still needs a 1-inch platform type heel to get close to the 5ft 8 guy (in normal shoes). The 5ft 4 girl needs really big 2-inch platform to look quite close to the 5ft 8 guy.]

How tall would a 177 cm girl be in these heels?

Rob something has been lingering on my mind a lot today. So my date and I are going for dinner this weekend, and in elevators I measure at 177cm (near evening time) on the dot with great posture. I remember her saying she was "inbetween 5'5 and 5'6" and "she looks shorter on different days". Now I'm obviously not going to ask her to get a tape measure out and measure herself, but im just a little worried that I dont want her to be taller than me in heels. It's a date so she will definitely be wearing heels but like i said, i really hope shes shorter or even a tad bit shorter. What are your thoughts? Even with big heels (which i hope she doesnt end up wearing) do you think she'll end up taller, or will things like evening height and posture come into play and I turn out to be taller haha

Thanks a lot rob, you've always been ever so helpful !
[Editor Rob: tiny, if she wears a heel with a 1-inch platform and a decent sized stem she might be eye to eye. If a normal 3-3.5 inch style (giving 2.75-3 inches) then she may look a bit shorter than yourself. ]

paulpierce said on 6/Nov/16
Rob just a question. I'm 21 years old, going to uni this year. Not really the social type but hoping to start going out more and enjoying my youth. I wanted to ask you what you think the average girl my age wears in terms of heels. A 4 inch heel? 4 inch 1 inch platform? 5 inch 1 inch platform? What type of heel do u reckon the average girl wears on a night out. I am exatcly 5'9.65 standing my tallest with great posture btw.

Thanks a lot rob and much blessings upon you!
[Editor Rob: I think there is still a trend for bigger heels, at clubs and parties, a 1 inch platform and 4-4.5 inch stem style is quite common, I think the average is going to be at least giving 3-3.5 inch range of actual height. ]

how many inches would these give

Click Here
[Editor Rob: over 3 near 3.5]
tinydancer said on 11/Sep/16
hey rob could you please let me know how much height a woman would gain from these heels:

4 inch, no platform
4 inch, 1 inch platform
4 inch, 2 inch platform
5 inch, no platform
5 inch, 1 inch platform
5 inch, 2 inch platform
6 inch, no platform
6 inch, 1 inch platform
6 inch, 2 inch platform

thank you ever so much Rob!
[Editor Rob:
the bigger foot (10) would give a little more than say a size 4 would.

but on average this is the kind of range I'd expect when measuring a girl with size 6-7 in heels described as those you said.

4 inch, no platform : 3-3.1
4 inch, 1 inch platform 3.2-3.3
4 inch, 2 inch platform 3.3-3.5
5 inch, no platform 3.7-3.8
5 inch, 1 inch platform 3.8-4
5 inch, 2 inch platform 3.9-4.2
6 inch, no platform 4-4.1
6 inch, 1 inch platform 4.1-4.3
6 inch, 2 inch platform 4.3-4.5

the extra inch in the platform won't make that much a difference compared to the 1 inch, like 1/8th range
MC said on 24/Aug/16
Hi Rob can ypu tell me what height can I get from Louboutin Cataclou 140mm platforms? Thanks
[Editor Rob: those have a very high angle, they will be pushing your feet to max tip-toe angle, then when you add the platform part, you'll end up probably near 4.5 inches of height.]

hello rob

in shoes i am 5ft9 -.25. would a female who is 5ft6 be taller than me in most heels? by most i meant the most common ones, stilettos and the ones with hardly any platform?

John said on 14/Aug/16
Hi Rob, I'm about 177 to 178 centimeters in my shoes give or take a bit. My girlfriend who's around 168cm is wearing these shoes they are listed as 4.3 inch heels but with an "arch" height of 4.1 inches with a 0.2 inch platform. Would she be taller than me? How many centimeters would she gain? I think she's under a size 9 maybe 8.5 US. In that video with Jenny she's wearing shoes that are 5 inches with a sizeable platform and she barely got 11cm in height... So I was just wondering! Thank you for this site!!

Heels: Click Here
[Editor Rob: probably right between 3.25 and 3.5 of actual height. That platform is said to be 0.2, it looks more...I wonder if they just measured the first black line and didn't include the padded bit above it.]
MC said on 9/Aug/16
I'm almost 5'10" and I'd like to wear wedges that are 4 inches high and with a 1.25 inch platform. How tall would I be in these shoes? 6ft 1?

It will be equivalent of looking eye to eye with a real 6ft man in 1 inch shoes.]

samia said on 18/Jul/16
Hi. I have height of 5.4 ..but I m still confusing whethr I have to wear heel or not.? Plz suggest me. Which type of heel is suitable fr my personality
[Editor Rob: if you want to look tall, then a platform heel with 1.5 inches will give you a considerable boost and many women wear heels of course because it alters the shape of your legs, makes them a bit longer and tones the muscle around the thigs/calf and locks your knees a bit more.

But if you want to get just a bit of a boost and not be in too much pain wearing them, then go for a flatter style up to 3 inches.

I would always recommend buying little gel heel pads (cheap on ebay or amazon) and use those at the back of heels so you don't end up with damaged ankles.]
Kirsten said on 15/Jul/16
So if i'm 5 feet 10 inches and I wear a heel that is 5 inches high with a 1.5 inch platform, then I would stand 6 feet, 2.5 inches?

Hi Rob, Is it possible for 5'7" female wearing big heels realistically look nearly 6'1"+
[Editor Rob: she might pull off looking a six footer in a heel with a solid 2-2.5 inch platform and good posture...but you need to be getting a 3-4 inch platform to start looking 6ft 1 to people.]
John said on 27/Jun/16

Ron said on 12/Jun/16
I am a high heel aficionado---on women of course!! When we first met my wife wore the heights I admire, up to 5 inches. I measure from the bottom of the spike to the exact point where heel meets sole, using a truly vertical ruler. To me this is absolute accuracy.

Now she can only wear heels at work and rarely above 3 inches(again by my system), doffing them as soon as she gets home and complaining loudly of pain, every day it seems.

She insists it's the height that has caused her the bunions of agony. But I believe it is the width of the standard toe box that is the true culprit---all are made same, one size for all. To me she has "unusual" feet. Though fitting a standard size 7 in length, her balls spanning the toe spread are noticeably wider in ratio. So her feet look squarish rather than oval. So over the years that part has been squeezed harder for her than for any other woman of size 7.

For Christmas I bought her a pair of near 6" stilettoes---with 2" platforms. Then I drew an outline of her toes while she was sleeping. First I had a shoe store widen them with a special process. The clerk said they were limited by the vinyl material and the stiff attachment of it to the solid wood platform. So next I bought some reverse pliers and forced the box more, leaving a "plug" in place without elastic bands overnight. I even bought shoe "fascinators" to cover the slit I made to get even more space.

All to no avail. My wife could barely get one shoe on and said she'd never walk in them. Not even in bed!! Of course she flatly said it was just the height. I had to "concede"......for then.

But I still think I could design a shoe with a 5 inch heel, 2 inch platform, and a custom wider toe box that would look sexy AND feel comfortable for her.

What do you think??
[Editor Rob: I do think women end up with more foot related problems because of these high heels. Maybe manufacturers should sell more wide-fitting styles of their popular models to accomodate different widths.]

Rob, is there a way for my 5'4" tall GF to reach my height in heels? I am 6'1" tall & I am like a head taller than her.

Hi!! does anyone know how tall i would be if i wear 2 1/2 inch heels (i'm 5'3!!) and in a size 8 or 8.5?? THANKS!! if anyone can reply back to me ASAP that'd be great!!

Hi Rob, I'm 178 cm tall with a size 9 shoe. How tall would I be if I wear a 7-7.5 cm heel with no platform? Actually i am thinking about buying a shoe like this ( ) but they didn't share the heel height info, i guess they are around 7 cm - but i am not sure. What do you think about these shoes' heel height and how much taller they make me look? Thank you :)
[Editor Rob: yes close to 7cm for a heel like that, so you would measure probably around that 185cm range.

From a man's perspective (who is wearing a 1 inch shoe) you are going to look like a 6 footer.]
javeria tariq said on 6/May/16
Hi Rob
I'm only 5 ft 2.5 inches. What kind of heel is most suitable and comfortable to wear almost everyday and ocassionaly? I want to look around 5 ft 8 inches.
[Editor Rob: to get that high you really need a platform with near 2 inches...and wearing those every day isn't going to be that comfortable. Some women buy gel pads or clear type inserts to stick into heels to make them more comfortable though.]
Adolfus said on 15/Apr/16
I can believe that a shoe can give you SLIGHTLY less height than is on the heel, but only a fraction of an inch less.

Hanna said on 10/Apr/16
How much height would a size 10, 4 inch heel with no extra platform at the toe give me?
[Editor Rob: it could give between 3 and 3.25 inches]
Adolfus said on 4/Apr/16
The high heel shoe will add roughly how ever much height is on the shoes' heels because that's how far it brings the heel of your foot off of the ground. So, if you are 5'8" and wear about 4 inches heels, then you are going to be about six feet-tall. I don't know where Rob and some of these others got the pseudo-scientific idea that the shoe does not really near as much height as the the heel measures, but it just isn't true.
[Editor Rob: This heel is called a 5.25 because that is the highest measurement at the back. Many companies describe their heels with the measurement of the highest point. The ankle acts as the pivot point (not the very back of your foot). For instance the Wine Suede heel and Light Pink shoes on this page were both described and sold as 4 inch heels, but they give 3-3.2 inch range of actual height. Here's another Click Here. That heel was a 4-inch heel and it gives the person wearing an actual height of 3 and 1/8th inch.
SportsHeight said on 25/Mar/16
Rob, obviously you wouldn't have much personal experience with this, but what is your impression of the size at which heels become particularly uncomfortable for women? My understanding is that when women complain about heels being agonizingly painful, they're usually referring specifically to the kind that add 2.75-3.0 inches or more. Would you agree?
[Editor Rob: when they push you up close to your natural maximum tip-toe tilt, that's when the greatest stresses are on feet, ankles. A lower heel in 1.5-2 won't give as much problems compared to that nearly 3 inch zone. But it can also depend on the comfort of the heel, whether there is padding on the soles, which might alleviate. I'd always recommend a women to use heels sparingly.]
Jessica said on 21/Mar/16

Yes. Ah ha we are an adventurous couple. He isn't intimidated by the thought of me being taller. I've never looked into taller heels honestly, but wasn't sure if it was possible to be taller like that. @Rob 7-8 inches seems kind of massive I'll probably aim between 5-6. Thank you so much though.
plus said on 16/Mar/16
Hi Rob! I know a person who is on her tip toes 11 cm taller, so she gains the exact quantity of the heel. How common is this?? so after that, this study is based on the average person with 6-7-8 cm on tip toes
[Editor Rob: if she had a long foot then you will get a bigger amount and if you could go at a slightly higher angle (when pivoting) than the average person, you could always get another little bit. Some heels actually push your feet at a slightly higher angle than you could get if you just tried to stand on tip-toes normally, but typically most don't do that.]
J.Lee said on 7/Mar/16
Jessica, do you want to be as tall as your boyfriend?
J.Lee said on 7/Mar/16
Hey rob can you look at this heel and estimate how much height it would give you? Click Here
[Editor Rob: in the 2-2.1 inch I'd expect them to give.]
Jessica said on 5/Mar/16
So would there not be a heel to achieve five or six inches? I've looked through stuff and it seems most heels achieve your standard of 4-4.5 inches. Thank you for your response though, found a decent pair of heels like the one you recommended.
[Editor Rob: of course there are heels to get you 5 or 6 or 7 inches, but they become massive. Lady Gaga sometimes wears heels that give her 8 inches, they are humungous. These Heels give 7-7.5 inches easily...but good luck walking in them :)]

Hi Rob, I was wondering my boyfriend is 6'0, possible 6'1. I am guessing with shoes on he gets a good half inch right? I am 5'7 or 5'8 no one has ever measured me properly. What kind of heels would I need to wear to be close to his height? He wants me to find a good heel so we can stand at similar heights. He isn't too afraid of me being taller than him, but I doubt there are heels that bigs or is there? I'd like some suggestions on what kind of heels to look for.
[Editor Rob: you are going to need a heel height that might give 4.5-5 range. So it would probably be something like This heel in terms of style. That has 2 inch platform and is quite a high angle so should get you somewhere between 4.5-4.8 range and if your boyfriend only had a small half inch heel you are going to be looking close to his eyes...]
Saumya said on 22/Feb/16
Hi Rob! I have a rather strange/stupid question, but I am desperate for an answer atm! ;) I've bought a pretty dress that is a bit too long for me. When I tried it on, I wore shoes with heel height of approx. 6cm. However, there is another pair of shoes that I wish to buy to go with the dress. My problem is, I cannot figure out exactly much longer should I ask my seamstress to keep the length of the dress. The website only describes the heel height of the shoe as "high". Perhaps you can figure out if the heel height is 8cm/9cm or more by looking at the shoe? Here's a link: Click Here Thanks in advance for your help!! :)
[Editor Rob: those should give you actual height of between 8 and 8.5cm most likely (certainly no more than 9cm). So they aren't hugely different from your 6cm, like 2-3cm... ]
Mimi said on 20/Feb/16
Hi Rob how much height will I gain wearing a pair of 4 inch wedges with 1.75 inch platform? Thanks

Mel said on 19/Feb/16
Hi rob! I currently stand at 5ft 8, and if I were to wear 2-3 inch heels, how tall would I be? What about 2-3 inch heels and a 1 inch platform?
[Editor Rob: with a 1 inch platform on a 3 inch heel, the angle isn't too 'high' so you might get quite close to 3 inches. If no platform, then the angle of your foot is high, so you might get 2.5 inch or so compared to 2.75-2.8.]
Mel said on 19/Feb/16
Hi rob! I'm currently 173cm and if I were to wear 5-6cm heels with no platform would there be any noticeable height change? What about 5-6cm heels with a 1-2cm platform?
[Editor Rob: 5-6cm basically is a small heel, but still it gets you about an extra inch compared to a guy wearing near 1 inch... from a guys perspective, if you wear those heels you will appear like a 175cm range person]
Autumn said on 11/Feb/16
Hi, Rob! I'm 5' 5.5'' tall- if I wear 4 inch heels, will I be 5' 9.5, or is there a difference I'm not accounting for? They're Nine West Tatiana heels.
[Editor Rob: they are advertised as 10cm or 4 inch heels, but they are measuring the very back of it. You will still get a solid 3 inches, maybe 3.1-3.2 inches of actual height though from them so in that nearly 5ft 9 zone]

Hello, Rob! If I'm 163cm, what height size can I wear to be the same height as 170cm or even shorter. I'm also a size 6. Thanks!
[Editor Rob: an average type of heel (one sold in shops as being 3 inches or 8-9cm) would take you to roughly 170cm. A heel sold as 4 inch or 10cm would probably put you a bit over 170cm.]
Holly said on 6/Feb/16

Mi said on 24/Jan/16
Hi, this might be a stupid question but, if you wear a 4-inch no platform heel and a 4-inch 1-2 inch platform heel, will you be the same height or will you be taller with the platform? Wouldn't the platform make it so your heel isn't as lifted as much as it would be without it, so it would give the same amount of height as the no-platform heel, or less? I'm confused hahaha! Thanks.
[Editor Rob: the difference might be just a little bit. The platform part means the area of your ankle bone might be slightly higher up than the one without the platform. The ankle bone is the pivot point and that's basically the high with the platform version the pivot point will sit a little bit higher because the angle of the shoe won't be as steeped as the non-platform...]
Georgia said on 23/Jan/16
Hi rob, I'm 5"8 and a half, how tall would I be in the Christian louboutin lady peeps or the daffodil's? Thanks!
[Editor Rob: those CL Peeps should get you into that 6ft 1/2 inch zone comfortably and the Daffodile has a much more thicker platform...the stem isn't that much more than those peeps, but it may well push you close to 6ft 1 in them if you are size 9-10 range.]

Rob how much height does a 5.5 inch wedges with 1.5 inch platform give? It's a US size 9.

SportsHeight said on 20/Jan/16
Rob, how much height is added by the tallest pair of heels the average woman is likely to have in her closet? I'm guessing it's somewhere in the 4-inch range? And how much do you think is added by the tallest heels usually carried by a typical women's clothing shop?
[Editor Rob: typically for younger ladies, you might find many have big ones that will give 4-4.25 range. But still, I've seen middle age ladies also wearing platform heels regularly. I've seen a few shops in my town with heels that have the 2-inch platform, some even more, so 4.5 range]
