The best way is to accept your height. And do not try to cheat. Height is never a problem. Vladimir Putin 171, Dimitri Medvedev - 166cm, Nicola Sarkozi- 169cm, Silvio Berlusconi - 167cm, Joseph Stalin - 165cm, Napoleon Bonaparte - 171cm, Iseec Newton - 168cm. Most of world leaders weren't tall. Changing shoes won't hide the fact that you are looser.

I bought shoes from internet company. They claimed lifts being 2'3 inches but they were about 1'6 inches.

t says on 14/May/08 gazinder: why do you care if girls are taller than you? any woman over about 5'9" looks terrible anyway... if you are 5'11 there is no way you are shorter than average lol. Maybe gazinder was just exaggerating. I agree that women over 5 feet 9 do look terrible, mannish and have almost deformed body structures. Some will pretend to be taller and tell their heights with heels or cause of the way they're built. There's this girl from work, she claims to be 5'9.5, but she's really about 5'6.5-5'7, it's cause she's bulky, it can make you appear taller than you are. I don't think a female body was built to be higher than 177cm maximum. Rob, you should do an article about body types, of how it can make you give off the deception of being taller or shorter than you are. I'm very petite, but built like a tall person, cause I'm stocky, but have short legs.

I love this site lol. As a recent convert to height obsession (after a 5'5" girlfriend said "you're quite short really aren't you?", it's an eye opener seeing which actors are indeed tall, which are average and faking it, and which have a careful PR agenda involving never being seen around tall people. I'd never even heard of lifts or elevator shoes before stumbling across this site (interesting work Rob), but oddly enough I'm now semi considering buying a pair for nights out on the town. I mean, I'm not small at a hair under 5'10", but I really have noticed recently how average height girls in mad high heels are almost at eye level with me. If they can wear high heels for a night out, why the hell can't us boys? I think a 2.5" increase would be the most I'd consider, that's not too much above the 1.0-1.5" heels on my trainers and boots, anything bigger than that and I'd probably feel a bit self conscieous. Women want equality - so do us lads. The Kid. ;-)

Being somewhat short at about 5'6'' to 5'7'', I can't say that I'm super proud of that, but I have definitely learned to accept. The whole thing about tall people having this significant advantage is like the whole thing about needing a foot long penis. Being tall is more of a bonus, though not something that you could count on. If a girl tells you that her "man" needs to be at least 6'4'' and have a 10-inch penis, you could tell her good luck because she'll definitely need it. And like someone already said here, there's a heck of a lot more to a person than height. Appearance? Intelligence or Wisdom? Oh and how about the most important part, IMHO, personality? Oh well, it IS true that there will always be people who care so much about height.

I bought shoes from Bugarri. Thay claimed 2,5 inch (6 cm) heels in their website, but they were only 1,6 inches (4 cm). Despite that I can reach to 5'9" - 5'9,25" with those shoes and that's enough for me, and they are good shoes.
Shaun said on 6/Feb/10
It really is amazing what these shoes can accomplish. Rob literally looklike he has grown 3 inches taller on the right and with the jacket also creates a much taller illusion. His torso literally looks longer on the right and he looks like a 5'11" guy!! It is not that obvious in the footwear too. Now when people claim that Matt Damon and Brad Pitt are near 6' that can only be in such shoes and in "effect".
Pete said on 5/Feb/10
I'm about 5'4", I usually wear boots with a lift inside for around 1.5" to 2" more. This is for maybe 8 months now. No one has ever commented on my shoes to me - I suppose it's possible that some have noticed but been too polite. Regardless, people don't continually keep tabs on other people's height - they size you up, then go along with that estimate. You have little to fear from wearing lifts or elevator shoes, unless they're truly outrageous.
mcfan said on 29/Jan/10
Rob, do these elevator shoes make it difficult to walk? I notice Cruise has an odd gait, but it might be his natural walk or due to his special shoes.
Taz said on 27/Jan/10
@Ritchie Oh, and you can't just base the estimate from ya' kid's age solely. It depends on the pubertal progress, nutrition and environmental factors. If a kid started puberty at 8, he'd be relatively tall when reaching the age of 12/13, but his epiphyseal plates would soon close and cut off his vertical growth. If you are 5'11 and his Mum is 5'8, his estimated height is 6'0. He has a 68% chance of being within 2 inches of this height, and a 95% of being within 4 (healthy growth, not due to pituitary disorders etc). Of course, he could reach a great height such as 6'6, or even stay at 5'8. If he's later than his peers, I would definitely say he'll be over 6'1 (due to a higher base height before pubertal growth spurt).
Taz said on 27/Jan/10
@Ritchie Ritchie, there's no way your height would have changed from 5'8.5 to 5'11, if you performed the comparison fairly. It clearly wasn't a fair test. You shrink during the day, especially if you have more weight on you. Stretches would have temporarily given you half an inch, straight out of bed. So, if you measured yourself just before bed when you were overweight, then it makes sense that after stretches, straight from a long period of horizontal rest, you'd be 1-2 inches taller. Some people shrink a lot (like myself, I shrink 1-1.25). Once the epiphyseal plates have closed, the only way to permanently increase your height is limb lengthening, or by stretching your trunk to the extent of breaking your spine, then inserting metal rods to keep the height. If you try to do this to your torso, you'll snap your spinal cord.

Elevator Shoes a gift from heaven
Bugarri said on 26/Jan/10
I ordered shoes from Bugarri. In their webpages my elevators were listed in 6 cm heels, but the truth was they were only about 4 to 4,5 cm thick. They claim up to 10 cm lifts in some shoes but I don't believe that, maybe 7-8 cm MAX.

After reading all the many posts on this site, I have come away with a few observations. First, obviously height does matter. I'm about as tall as Rob and looking at the comparisons of different people next to him, I must really look short next to a lot of people, although I don't feel short. Also, I notice where the bottom of the chins are in the pictures. Even when two people are the same height, the person with the shorter head always looks taller. People usually will look at your face when meeting you and compare those features with others around them. I don't think most people are looking at the tops of heads or the footwear either. I think the average person is making a snap analysis when meeting you; if you have shoes with 2 or 3 inch elevation that make you appear taller to them, that's all they are going to remember, the height and not the shoes. As I have posted before at this site, the only real concern, if it does concern you, would be getting busted. Airport (shoes off), new girlfriend who suddenly notices you're 3 inches shorter, gatherings at friends house (new carpeting), locker room, poolside, meeting a new business client at their home and taking the shoes off (ouch), you get the idea.

J.J. said on 13/Jan/10
rob' is that 2.5" difference. It looks like nearer 3" to me
Locket said on 9/Jan/10
As many people seem to have commented, the shoes give too much of a noticeable increase. I wouldn't want to be 2.5" taller in shoes than my barefoot height, it would be far too obvious. Ideally I would be looking for shoes with a slightly more subtle increase - I am about 5"8 (side point - Rob if you read this, what height would you say I can legitimately call myself - fully extended I am exactly 173cm (5"8.1) in the morning and between 171.5 - 172cm (5"7.5 - 5"7.5) in the evening) and would like to be around 5"9 - 5"9.5 maximum in dress shoes - just a slight countermeasure to the 1 - 2 inch heels girls wear on nights out. Do you have any suggestions for any nice-looking dress shoes that offer this height increase (and if it's not too much trouble, at a low price!) - the site you recommend looks very good Rob, but very expensive!
Editor Rob said on 3/Jan/10
Austrian - lifts are not as comfortable as a shoe designed with the lift as part of it. But as a cheap option they would suffice. anonymous - I'm in socks and jenny's got converse in the left shot, and same shoes on the right!
J Dog said on 30/Dec/09
The only use I have for elevators, is as a back up. Like a few have mentioned, some women are tall. I'm 5'11 in shoes, and if i date a 5'7 or 5'8 girl,and she decided to wear 3 inch heels when we go out, it kind of evens up the height, if I wear an extra inch or two myself, as this puts me at 6ft... do i worry about losing the extra height? no, as when she takes off her bigass heels, the she'll be much smaller anyway. I suppose they aren't bad to add an inch and a bit to your height, it's pretty easy to get away with that, if anyway calls you on it when your without them, just make up your hair is flatter, or your slouching etc etc... but i couldnt go above 2inches with shoes, unless i really needed them, job interview etc and i was a shorter guy. I just couldnt imagine my girl kissing me outside, then when we're inside her saying "why have you shrunk two inches???" I think there are more subtle ways to add inches, i.e. my shorter friend used to have a hairstyle similar to JD in scrubs, and would wear chunky slippers a lot in the house, his gf was 5'8, he was 5'6, but doing this levelled the playing field. But if they work for you, and you pull them off, then keep on trucking brutha, as with any clothing, it will work for some, and not for others... my advice, stay within around 2inches in situations that could prove intimate.
someone said on 27/Dec/09
At 5'4", a two or three inch increase would still make me short. I dont see the point in buying elevator shoes. Also, I never found them in any stores at all, only online.

Hey Rob, did you try lifts too? What would you say is the better choice overall, lifts or elevator shoes?

I only have a question,what is the tallest a 5,10 - 5,10.5 guy could be in elevator shoes?
Anonymous said on 25/Nov/09
Shaq would be 7'3.5" in them, and Big Show, 7'2". His originally billed WWE height. I think Big Show wore lifts in 1999 when he was billed 7-2
Aleks said on 21/Nov/09
The difference in the picture is amazing. I didn't know elevator shoes could make you appear THAT MUCH taller. Is it me or most small guys wear those?
Matthiew_- said on 19/Nov/09
Lol I'm 5'11 ( 180cm ) yet I'm very broad and muscular with short legs and long torso ... One of my friendds is 181 cm and people comment at him being tall while the same people usually comment at me being small ... So frustrating ! When people are telling my height most girls think of me as as low as 5'9 low yet they are surprised when I stand striaght next to them ( I have bad posture due to years of boxing my shoulders are going forward ) But I guess you cannot beat the people's misperception :( Maybe I will try a pair of Don's sometimes , to make my self longer legs and a strong 6footer so people will stop commenting about my shortness , f--- 180cm isn't short !!!! Problem is 2.5 inches seems to be a bit too much to go away with it without being busted ! :p
Wish I was a little bit taller.. said on 15/Nov/09
It is fun being taller...I happened to get a pair of shoes that were too big and needed insoles to get them to fit, the insoles lifted me up and the rest is history. I am married not looking for women, I am taller than my wife, above average height, I just think it is a cool feeling to be a little taller that's all. I wouldn't spend big bucks for it though..

Rob, did you really buy elevator shoes?
aramx said on 5/Nov/09
I am guessing Stadnik wears boots that raise his height by as much as 2 inches from barefoot. Those shoes look like real monsters in terms of height boosting!
Brian said on 5/Nov/09
Personally, I think that lifts are only really helpful if you're in high school or college and are getting measured for a sport. Other than that, if I see someone with really thick footwear on, I don't say, "Oh, look at that tall guy". I say, "Oh, look at that self-conscious wanna-be tall guy". That's just me. "Invisible" lifts crammed inside your shoes are probably pretty uncomfortable anyway. Maybe elevator shoes are at least helpful with convincing yourself that you're taller than you actually are, but I like to think of myself in barefoot height. If anyone on this page decides that really need lifts, I would agree with 5\'8 beast that Nike Air Force Ones are probably your best bet. Any type of basketball sneakers, really. If you where something like that, instead of admitting that you're just trying to look taller, you can just say, "These shoes are for athletic purposes", "They are really comfortable on my feet", or "I love the style". Just never get caught without an excuse for wearing shoes that add over an inch, if you really need them.
Anonymous said on 4/Nov/09
That's quite a difference in the picture; I was in the clothing business awhile back and would suggest a long and wide enough pant bottom to accommodate the height increase. I'm 5ft.8.25 also; I think friends and family would notice I grew overnight with these shoes. Right now I wear Kenneth Cole Reaction with the thick soles which are good for 1.5 inch increase. The thing I'm having trouble taking in is the cost of the Don's; they aren't cheap. I may consider them in the future. One last thing which has to be considered is if you ever need to take them off such as someones home or even at the airport. Kind of funny, but I was thinking if the pants are long enough one might be able to stand on their toes without anyone noticing.
Naz said on 3/Nov/09
Being a woman and only 4'9 is really really frustrating, a day dont go by where i dont think about my height, but luckily i have come across heel lifts and now i can wear flats with these in, the only down fall is, when i wear heels i dont look any taller and i feel silly, i am sure people around me are thinking it is strange i look the same in flats and heels!!!! lol
The Dutchguy said on 3/Nov/09
The father of a mate of mine always used to be 6'4.5'', but he is in his mid 60's now so he has lost some centimetres, but he still looks about my height, 6'4,or even taller, in dress shoes, but one day when we were standing next to eachother, both in nothing but socks, i was about 1.5,2 inches taller then him..i personally find wearing dress shoes ''cheating'' though ;)

"NIKE AIR FORCE ONE'S" are good for a extra inch or two... and still look ultra stylish. AND NON SUSPICIOUS. :p
Mike said on 2/Nov/09
I'm just over 5'7" and wifey is lovely 5'4"....She adores high heels as much i as i adore her wearing them and her wardrobe is full of Dior and Gianmarco Lorenzi shoes. Her smallest heel is 10cm (4") and highest 14cm (5.5")....I found Don's Range (Tallshoes4men.com) which were hand-made-to-measure with a 2-3" raise. Cutting to the essentials - the only person i want to look good for is my wife so i am very happy to maintain a few inches above her. She's happy, I'm confident and it's a win win situation. Not sure about the cheap Chinese crap that I have seen around which have the quality and style of a plastic bin liner stuffed with paper Mache, but i can recommend Dons and their shoes are of a high-end high street quality with the benefit of being made to order and customised - think something like Hugo Boss bespoke. As with most things, you get what you pay for and if you are looking to maintain a few inches above your lady, then these are a blessing in disguise.
Math said on 23/Oct/09
I will always wear my 3 inch lift from now on,never will i go a day in my lift without them.
Anonymous said on 16/Oct/09
I believe there is a way to get taller; I think I read somewhere and I'm not making this up, your thigh bones are both broken and stretched a bit and pins and a brace are worn for an extended period of time. The idea is that the space between the break grows new bone and thus the increase in height. I think there is a limit to how far you could go with this.
Anonymous said on 10/Oct/09
I'm considering lifts for the future. I'm 5'8" on the dot. I don't really care about height that much, I just think that they would be nice to have for clubbing or going out on weekends. Height is obviously an advantage in meeting women and if you can attain an advantage by simply purchasing a pair of shoes, why not?
Guy said on 7/Oct/09
I don't understand people who wear these, do you refuse to go swimming? Conning people is pretty lame, but if you're going to do it at least pick something that people won't notice after knowing you for an hour.
LT said on 4/Oct/09
im about 5'11" throughout the day (almost 6' in the morning) but i do find my height commented on occasionally, it may have somthing to do with the fact i wear work boots (havent worn sneakers in 5 years) or if im going to the city (i live in the country) i wear my cowboy boots with homemade cork lifts in them, in which case im about 6'2.5", i do this to look more intimidating and hopefully wont get attacked, my brother on the other hand is 6'6" and has weighed over 320 lbs (hes down to 285 now though), i made him a pair of lifts as well that he wore in his work boots from time to time which brought him up to over 6'9", we searched high and low but couldent find lifts any bigger than size 12 (he wears size 15-16 boots, 16-18 sneakers) i guess people with feet that big dont really need lifts, but he loves drawing attention to his size and scaring people.
Mike said on 1/Oct/09
Rob, what are your own personal views on wearing elevator shoes or height increasing insoles? Would you, or have you ever, worn them?
l0ck n l0ad said on 17/Sep/09
Just a quick question, are shoes or sneakers like Timberland & Nike (just generalising) that give 1.5" over barefoot are considered elevator shoes or just normal shoes with relatively high heel? I need new shoes and I'd like to buy ones that give decent height but nothing over the top, and I think 1.5" would be perfect for me.
billybob said on 15/Sep/09
I have lifts in my shoes. It's my dirty little secret heheh. I'm not really sure what % of males wear concealed lifts though... i imagine it's higher than i would expect. Anyways, i am naturally very tall; about 6'5" in the morning and a little under 6'5" in the evening. I guess in my shoes i'm about 6'7"... it seems that i'm nearing the tops of doorways. I always wish I could have been a little taller naturally... which may sound selfish to some that are short and really do need lifts. I am half dutch... my father's side is very tall; almost every male over 6'1" and going up to 6'11". If I decide to have a kid I would definitely prefer to have it with a tall women, like 5'11" or more. I would like to give the natural advantage that being very tall can provide in everyday life.
Will said on 7/Sep/09
I'm 5'9.5, I have been looking for some comfortable elevator shoes that only give me a .5-1 inch lift, however I am having trouble finding them. I know lifts are a good alternative, but most of the shoes that I have are casual dress shoes that are low cut and barely have enough room for my ankles as is. I want to be able to take off my shoes without anyone noticing I am gaining a inch from a insole. Most elevator shoes come with at least a 2 inch lift, and I think if I took my shoes off people would notice.
Leo said on 2/Sep/09
I stand bare foot at 5'9.5 in the morning, and i still feel sorta short...It really' does depend on what shape you're in though. If you're Lean and fit, and even have broad shoulders it gives you the apperance/feeling of looking taller. I know this for a fact, because its how i feel and even look when i get like that... I still wear a lift in my shoes. So with a total I get 1.75 inches...My shoes are normally 0.75 for a lift(they're Adidas Euro shoes) and i stick an Inch in them hehe. I dont know how people could ever go over 2" ;p...Especially when you take your shoes off at somebodies house...People would be like wtf happened to u?lol
Tony said on 1/Sep/09
I'm considering these type of shoes. I'm 5'9, and looking for a 2-3 inch lift. Why? Well, I'm happilly married...so, no not looking for a women. I have a good job...not needed there. Self-Esteem? All good. I say why not men!!!! It's fun thing to do... Hey, for those of you that think we are kinding ourselves, our lying...bs I say. I'm not altering by body with Botox or Plastic Surgery...I anticipate wearing them infrequently...weddings, dances, formal get togethers...and if people ask...well, I'm simply wearing shoes with a higher heel...big deal. You know...my dad is 5'4 and my mom is 5'0...I really got lucky at 5'9, and I appreciate that...but I can always remember my dad wearing "platform" shoes...why not.... he was the average than...I'm the average today, and just want to be above average from time-to-time...I want to see the clouds :)
Aleks said on 1/Sep/09
I really don't see the point in wearing elevator shoes. It doesn't make you taller, it only makes you APPEAR taller. I can hardly understand how it can make you feel better. I'm short myself, but I don't think I'd ever want to wear those.

I think people need to relax a little. There are gorgeous women out there who are smart and succesful who have married to men who are not tall at all. Take my boss. She's maybe 5'4? 5'3? her surgeon husband is 5'5. She's absolutely beautiful. I mean she's much older than me (39, I'm 23) but still, drop dead beautiful. Take Malin Akerman, her husband in all the pics is shorter than her. doesnt matter her height...he's SHORTER THAN HER. Tom cruise- again, married to tall women I myself have dated taller women. Not because I wanted to but because women are mostly taller than me. I stand 5'5. I wear boots regularly that give me a 5'6 look. I have dated a lot of women who are either my height with shoes-5'6 or taller in the 5'7 range. I have no problem attracting women. The only girls who would really avoid me because of height are those women who are absolutely insecure about their own lives. I can assure you that after years of talking to such girls I know they are insecuer about themselves and want to be with the stereotypical male. The tall, white, blue eyed type guys. If you go into shallower professions, it will become an issue-models, college sorirty girls etc. But the reality is, there is a beautiful girl out there for every type of guy. Whether your short, or dumb, or poor...theres a girl who's going to be attracted to your positive qualities. What are mine even thoug I'm only 5'5? Well, I know I'm very attractive, very intelligent, and very succesful. Any one of those is enough to pick up an attractive girl. Don't worry about your looks or your heigt...its one of the most irrelevant aspects of our lives. If anything shallow is really important its how good you are in bed. Even that is not a top 5 issue for most women.
mee said on 18/Aug/09
I agree with themaster, woman cant judge height well. I am 182 cm tall, and my friend who is 165 cm tall said that I am not that much taller than she, she thought that I am 170 cm tall :S :S :S

I'm 5'8.25 evening height. I dont think elevator shoes and height increasing insoles should be worn on a regular basis, but wearing them from time to time for things like dates, job interviews, going out clubbing etc is fine and gives you that extra bit confidence. I wear regular shoes which add 1" to my height, aswell as insoles which are just under 1.5". So I usually stand at just over 5'10.5. Wearing lifts is also very good for building up your calf muscles!
Brian said on 15/Aug/09
NathanX, this might be a topic for the general height forum, but I couldn't agree more. Some short guys who can't attract women blame all their problems on height, but there's always someone shorter than them with a better social life. It's because those people downplay their height and never try to inflate or exxagerate it. It's when someone short makes a big deal about their height that really hurts them. I'm not saying that being tall does not help, for it certainly does, but that just doesn't change the facts- Some people got it, some people don't.
yoyo said on 10/Aug/09
at 6ft1 wear 3inch lift, that was out of confident to me.. NathanX, you should just accept your real height as 6ft2 in shoes(normal lift) better than a fake 6ft4ish with shoe that is better to push your confident level. At over 6ft you are still a lucky guy. im sure walk out the street you often see guys who are most at 5ft9 to 5ft11 at most. 6ft1 you are taller than 6.5 out of 10 rates.
Ritchie said on 2/Aug/09
Number one issue must be, please all of you telling other people it is wrong for them that to use any means (such as elevator shoes) is unfair. Its like telling women NOT to use makeup because its not reality. Ive definitely slept with women who turned otto be uglier than I realised and it was'n just alcohol to blame it was makeup. But I have no right to tell a women not to use it. Look at how hot Nicole Kidman looks but look at her original movies pre- hair straightening and covering those yucky freckles. For myself I can tell you at 23 I was 5'10.5. But I got fat and at 28 I was 5'8.5 Two inches. I lost all the weight without useing stuipd miracle height programs by scam artists but I also did alot of stretching, and I am 5'11 at 31. I wear shoes that give me 2 inches which is slightly more than an average shoe and I hit 6'1 which I think is respe table. There is one element that many of you have not considered and that is that there is a 'CRITICAL POINT' with height. In most western countries I think it is 5'10, an inch below this then a high percentage of people think you are 'not tall', 5'10 to 5'11 is average. 6'0 to 6'1 is a bit above average, and 6'2 and up is 'tall'. These are just my own sentiments. For the record, if I wear normal shoes I don't care and because my elevator shoes aren't huge it does not create a vast difference in my day to day height. My son is 13 and a half and is 5'8 and his mum (we are not together anymore) is 5'6. So I charted my sons height and he should be 6'3 to 6'5. What we are seeing is a higher protein diet making us both taller and fatter (we have mostly the same genetic potential from generation to generation by the way)
JJ said on 31/Jul/09
Uh also guy down there said no U.S pResident is below 5'11 in 20th century umm Teddy Roosevelt, Coolidge, Truman, Eisenhower, Carter, umm all 20th century all under 5'11. Besides who cares just proves America is getting more superficial perhaps besides some of our best presidents were under 5'10 and I don't think America picks presidents on height it just happens that Bush was elected twice and was shorter then both his opponents.
JJ said on 31/Jul/09
Nathan I couldn't agree more I see all these pity party members here their are people with real problems in life get over yourself most women find far more in personality. I am 5'7 and never had a problem be it in work or regular life. I have never gottten turned down for a job or by a women thus far in life and I am told I am an attractive guy I never let my height bother me and you know what it never effected me. There may be some cases were it does for people but usually I think it comes down to low confidence. Get over it your short there are far worse problems you could have. Stop dwelling on your physical apprence and do something I know plenty of successful men tall, short, and average. Fat, skinny, or built. Ugly, average, or good looking. It really shouldn't matter unless you let it and if some one judges you on your height in such a manner then it's their loss and no different then juding by race or religion.

Remember people, just because you think it's weird for guys to do this, doesn't mean they suffer from low confidence. If that's the case than you buying that brand new expensive car that you will NEVER see yourself in as you are driving, or buying that really expensive suit that makes you look "good", or women putting on makeup to "hide" their real skin. It's all the same...

To be honest with you short guys are actually pretty hard (they are tough) im roughly 6'1 and back in high school I knew a guy who was only 5'9 he acted all tough and everything and made a joke about people being tall and made tall people look bad so yeahh.... just cause someone is short doesnt mean they are different or weaker then a tall guy
Sammy Barr said on 12/Jul/09
I am 5'6" which is a little short. I used to use elevator shoe to give me an extra couple inches to be closer to normal height and they worked but now I have been using levitator shoe lifts out of ohio. They go up to 2.5 inches and when I put them in boots or my high top tennis shoes I am 5'10 inches with the shoe and lift on. They are very comfortable as far as lifts go and they seem to keep their shape(height) but I have only been using them for a month or so. When I talked to the guy on the telephone he was really helpful and mad sure my stuff went right out. The lifts pop right out of your shoes and your other footwear. The website is Click Here if you are interested.

Hey everyone i just wanted to say that height does matter, and for me i have experienced insecurities even though im 5'9, yes i know i must be really insecure about myself. But its not our fault, we were born like this there is nothing we could do about it. Societys standards are that if you are tall or above average then for sure you are going to be picked first than the shorter guy, and for girls too, they love taller men. Sometimes life isnt fair, and that is why i know that your lying to yourself when you wear these lifts but also think about it, people dont give a damn if you wear lifts, in a job interview they are not going to ask you to take off your shoes to see if you have lifts or not, so if society treats you less then how come we dont have the right to wear these? i am above average for my ethnicity (mexican) but being here in the west is hard. God i wish i was a lil bit taller lol
Dustin said on 9/Jul/09
I really do not understand why people are so obsessed with height OR why people bitch about being 5'8" or 5'9".

With that being said, I'd probably give my left nut to be 5'9"... probably both to be 6'0", lol.

Bob: Sorry, but F.D. Roosevelt, H.S. Truman and Jimmy Carter were all 5ft9. So YES, there's been US Presidents shorter than 5ft11 in the 20th century.

Sarkozy and Berlusconi are both notorious for wearing elevator shoes. I don't know about Putin, but he's another short guy with power, so I can imagine him using lifts or elevators.
Dago Red said on 8/Jun/09
Don't worry about being short, EVER. There comes a point to where your lack of height becomes "boyish charm. And if that doesn't work for you, buy a motorcycle, and suddenly the six footers are standing alone while you ride off with the women.
Short guy said on 26/May/09
Just my 2cents, I'm 5'4 and have never let it bother me. I get plenty of attention from women even ones taller than me. I do understand the pain though, because there is definately bias towards us shorter guys. I don't care what peoople say, it's there.

I've thought about getting a set of eleveators just to see how people react. As far as false advertising, is it any different from breast implants or padded bras? Just my answer to those women who have made those comments about lying.

Be confident in your self and who you are. That will mean more than your height, trust me. At 5'4 I'm below what most consider short. There a women who just want taller guys, accept it and move on. Lots of fish in the sea. No different from guys wanting to date the perfect 10 and not the big girls.

The bottom line, if you want to wear them go for it. Anyone here that claims people don't care about height are lying. Just be above that, and only then will it no longer matter.
PinkPanther said on 15/May/09
Okay, I'm sorry to all who oppose to Sienna but I agree with her. It's true. Just open yours eyes, taller men get treated differently. My fiance stand 5'9" and I stand 5'7" which is way too close for me, but love came knocking and I had to get over the difference in height, but still whenever he's wearing a pair of shoes that bumps him up an inch or 2...Good Lord...I love it...

I dont think there is anything wrong with wearing lifts especially when we women wear just about every sort of lift available on the market without any ridicule...

My boyfriend's height is only 5'5", I worry about taking him to see my families. My mother won't allow me to get married with him if she see him. So I bought two pairs height increasing shoes for him from Elevator Shoes store Click Here .My boyfriend looks like 5'5"when he wear the shoes. Thank you very much.
Csmall said on 12/May/09
I'm going to keep this as short as possible:

I'm a guy and 5'4" on the dot when I wake up in the morning.

I get a dead 2" boost when I wear my boots, so that takes me up to 5'6".

I joined a dating website and I'm a pretty darn good-looking guy and I initially used 5'7" as my height and I got an almost 100% success rate with my messages.

Even though I'm 5'4" without my shoes, I am still legitimately 5'6" when I'm out and about, so I have no qualms at all putting 5'6" as my height because it technically is to a certain extent.

For some reason I got really sick and tired of putting 5'7" and lowered it to 5'6". When I started messaging with my new height, my success rate nearly dropped from 100% to somewhat close to 0% percent.

In actuality, 5'6" isn't a horrible height. It's still taller than most girls, but the closer to average height the better of course.

So two things come to mind:

1) 5'6" just doesn't sound good on paper. It just sounds short. 5'7" on the other hand doesn't sound that bad on paper. It just doesn't seem that short and quite frankly either on paper or in real life it isn't. It's only 2-3" below average.

2) Girls will likely think a guy who lists his height as 5'6" is probably at least 2-3 inches shorter than that with shoes on in person.


So, what do I do. Keep my height listed as 5'6" or change it to 5'7"? Do I want girls to just accept my height for what it is at the time or add an inch or so to give myself a chance to let myself slide in the door easier so that can see what the great guy I am?

Heck, even if I'm walking barefeet at 5'4", I'm still going to say I'm a 5'6" guy and with 2", no one really questions otherwise. No one can be SURE about something as small as a 2" difference. 5'8" guys easily pass as 5'10" guys and 5'10" guys easily pass as 6'0" guys. Likely a combination of to it being such a small difference and guys lying about their heights.

Now if I say I'm 5'7" and am 5'6" in shoes, but 5'4" in barefeet, I feel like claiming 3" above my barefoot height is just too much.

Of course I could just always say that I thought I was 5'5" which 5'4" is close enough to and that I thought I was about 5'7" with my shoes on, so I just listed it as that.

I know this is all stupid as heck, but I was just curious as to what some of your guys thoughts were on this matter.

I either just want to fully embrace my short stature or fake it a bit. I'm not sure which one at this point.
jf said on 11/May/09
I'm 5'11.5" tall and have never considered buying elevator shoes but if all the 5'9" guys start doing it (adding 2-1/2") I will appear less superior, and might consider buying elevators so that I'm at a height of 6'2". It will be weird one day if all guys wear elevator shoes like women wear heels. Yao Ming would be 7'9"!

I don't know why people are wearing lifts in their shoes? just because you are short doesnt mean that you are less then tall people, and i think women dont really care wether you are 5'7 or 6 feet tall, i am 6'4, but some of my mates are 5'7 or slightely shorter, and nobody treats them diffirently, be positive about yourselfs :)

I'm in the UK & decided to buy some height boosting shoes, my girlfriends 5ft8 and likes wearing heels, I'm 5ft7,looking for a company in the UK I went to standtaller and the shoes were not very good quality, the service was terrible as you speak to a call centre & they make their shoes in China, nothing wrong there of course but you could see the Quality Control failed miserably.

After a few visits to google I found the celebheights site and then in the end went to secretshoes.co.uk , The shoes really work and they arrived speedily.The guy I spoke to was the owner and knew everything about his product and even wore them himself.

Height increasing shoes are all about personal & lifestyle preference and its your money & your life - so do whatever makes you happy!
NathanX said on 27/Apr/09
Im 6'1 and wear lifts of about 3 inches. Im also a body builder. That extra high does get me a lot more attention from women. I wear them for work as i work in as an escort. It makes a difference. I always sit on the bed first to take my shoes off and slide them under the bed.

Sienna is right in many ways BUT the truth is that shorter guys can represent strength, confidence and traits that height represents through behavior. The problem is most guys who are short and not confident dont behave in the right ways to show these qualities and are therefore judge too much on height. Trust me I know many short men who can attract top quality women. Seen it over and over again. Anyone can learn these skills short, tall thin, fat and ugly!

themaster said on 24/Apr/09
Shep you must be smaller than 5'7" to feel the way you do. Being eye to eye with most women would have you at 5'5".

Most women cant tell the difference between 5'7" to 5'10".

Yeah, right, time to come back from Wonderland, people). All I need is just a straight answer from competent people like yourselves: Rob and Tom (and not Hicham or Simon, just R-o-b and T-o-m). What do you KNOW is the best brand of elevator shoes? What do you recommend, please. Thank you to you both.
Anonymous said on 19/Apr/09
Here's my experience with elevator shoes:

I am a 5'8.5 in morning U.S. man, in my late 20's and I just recently purchased elevator boots advertised as giving 4" in height. Indeed, this is misleading as your body weight will push you down into the shoe, so technically the elevator boots only made me 5'10.5, when I measured. Nevertheless, I did see positive results:

1.) Although 5'10.5 is only slightly over average for an American Caucasian male, I actually towered over many men and women during the day.
2.) I was treated more cordially, whether I was shopping or just talking to strangers.
3.) Accessing items from high up (i.e. cabinets) was much easier, and
4.) Before the elevator shoes I had a painful case of Plantar fasciitis, which miraculously disappeared a few days after wearing the elevator shoes

Nevertheless, the elevators are not without negatives:

1.) You will walk slower, and until you learn how to "go with the flow" of the elevators, you may walk a little funny.
2.) Your toes will be slanted downward in similar effect to women's high-heel shoes, not quite that steep, but this may cause discomfort in the tendon, calf or knees (so far, I've only noticed a minor case of the latter.)
3.) As you will tell from pictures, the shoes are strange-looking unless you wear pants that hide the protruding "arch" on the back. After that, if people aren't paying attention to the fact your legs are longer and your arm/torso lengths are incongruent to your legs, no one will think twice.
4.) No elevator shoes are made for exercise or running! REMEMBER THAT!

Overall, it's about balancing the benefits with the negatives. If I was going to make a verdict right now, I'd say they would be good to wear occasionally to moderation (work, job interviews, lecturing, performance, dates, concerts, etc.) but I wouldn't recommend on a daily basis. As for those who claim wearing elevators would be "lying", always remember there's the "personal/health conveniences" that could be used as a rebuttal should the "lie" accusation ever arise. Again, if you want to be taller for whatever reason, they WILL make you taller - no question about that. Make your own judgment beyond that. Best of luck!

sodapop said on 29/Mar/09
Why would a 5'9" guy buy lifts?? Your 5'10" plus with normal shoes! I'm 5'9 and I don't feel short at all. And there is never a girl taller than me or even with me. 90% of girls are like 3 or 4 inches shorter than me.
sodapop said on 29/Mar/09
Why are girls posting here, its hilarious. Noone cares how tall a girl is! It doesn't matter!! Girls can wear high heels. Guys are screwed!!! Cuz noone makes a good looking elevator shoe for us!!

Who makes the best looking and most comfortable lift shoes? Thanks I'm 5'10" and feel pretty tall when walking around in public, but I wouldn't mind an extra 1.5 to 2 inches
sodapop said on 18/Mar/09
This is my own height chart for american males
5'7" and under = short
5'8" - 5'9" = average
5'9" - 5'11" = above average
6'0" - 6'2" = tall
6'2" and over = very tall
Arie said on 17/Mar/09
Ok, I'm a little over 5'9", with regular shoes around 5'10" or 5'10 and a half and when I'm in public I'm usually one of the taller guys around me. I live in Texas. I'd say the average height in for a man in America is about 5'7" to 5'9". And for girls its 5'3" to 5'6". So all you guys thinking your short at 5'7" or 5'8", your average height. And everyone always wants to be 2 inches taller. I would like to be around 5'11" but 2 inches is not gonna make a noticeable difference. And I wouldn't want to be over 6feet tall, that seems too tall. I would actually hate being over 6'1" you would tower over everyone around you and stand out like a freak. Why would you want that???
Tommy said on 7/Mar/09
"eight does matter, for people who think it doesn't. I believe most men feel more comfortable if they are a bit taller then average. I think towering over somebody is a bit too much. If the average height is about 5'9, I bet that people would rather be 5'11/6'0 then 6'3/6'4. Here in Holland average is 6'0, I'm 6'2 which is a bit above average but there are a lot of people who tower over me.. I wouldn't want to trade with them. My girlfriend is 5'7, she could've been 1 or 1,5 inch shorter. More would make the difference too much. So if you are 6'5, you're probably looking for someone who is at least 5'9. Good luck finding one. I'd rather be average and have more possibilities.
(In my opinion, I'd rather have a 2 or 3 inches taller girlfriend then towering a foot over her!)Anyway, to stay on topic.. There's nothing wrong with lifts, you should try and be who you want to be.. If you vision yourself to be more perfect with 2 inches extra, do it! People who ridicule people who wear lifts are sad!"

Just to correct this guy from the netherlands. The average height for men in Holland is 5"11(180.60cm)according to the last study done by professor Komlos of the University of Munich. 6"0 is only for younger men.

I got some boots with lifts in them from richlee shoe company . I'm 5'8 1/2 and with the boots on i'm almost 3 inches taller (about 5'11 1/4) well worth the money i paid .
Jim said on 16/Feb/09
Sounds like some people have had some success with lifts but in my experience the ones I had were awful. They were $120, claimed 2 and a half inch increase and looked nice and trendy on the website. I'm 5'7 and for the past 10 years or so have worn comfy pumps or flat smart shoes which only give about a quarter of an inch additional height when I measured myself with them on. The lifts I bought took me up to nearly 5'9 and a half. Unfortuantely that was as good as it got.

Firstly, they looked nothing like they did on the website. They were almost big and bulky and as high as they were long. Although this bulk is hidden by your trousers legs the angle you are walking at with them on means your foot length virtually halves. It looked like I had the feet size of a child. I have a friend who has specially made shoes as he has a walking disability. My lifts looked like his specially made shoes.

If that wasn't bad enough they were the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever owned! Walking with my feet at a funny angle meant I walked funny (I felt a bit off balance) and the arches of my feet would ache during and after wearing them. They were too heavy. Tie some bricks to the bottom of your shoes and then go for a walk and then you'll see what I mean. After spending all day at a football match I went to a party in the evening wearing the lifts. My feet hurt so much I couldn't wait to leave the party so I could go home and take my shoes off! Even wearing three pairs of socks at once didn't really help. My feet always hurt after wearing them.

I have very good posture as I am very fit and stand up straight. The lifts have you standing at such an angle that you spend half the time actually fighting to stand up straight. I was also worried that if someone bumped into me I might actually fall over because my balance was now much worse than when I wore normal shoes.

I only wore those lifts 7 or 8 times and then decided enough was enough. I went and bought some nice dress shoes at a quarter of the price. They take me up to 5'8 and a quarter and I am more than happy with that. I really feel sorry for girls wearing high heels all the time. I don't know how they do it!
Samuel said on 15/Feb/09
Honestly this is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. Look I am 5 foot 7 okay and yeh sure it sucks to be short but to be honest loads of short guys i know have np trouble getting a hot gf. Infact alot of girls I know only want their guy to be taller than them, it doesnt matter how much taller just aslong as they are taller and there are only a few shallow ones I have seen. Just learn to love yourself and dont listen to people like that sienna who say stupid shallow things like that.
Anonymous said on 23/Jan/09
I used to fold up a couple pairs of socks and put them inside my shoes until I bought my lifts. You can easily add 1 to 2 inches with socks, you just have to change them out every couple of weeks.

I think I have height issues because i'm insecure about my height and feel uncomfortable around people taller than me- and i'm 6'5"! I always wanted to be around 6'8" to be unique. I'm considering getting insoles to feel taller. However if i'm with people I know that are quite short I feel like bending downwards and making myself shorter, it's pretty weird. With my family as well, even though my brother is taller than I, I will slouch so I can look up to him. I don't want to seem huge and intimidating in public but I think it's true that taller in stature will garnish some more attention (some good, some bad!)

I think it is not good to fool people with your height. Lets say you wear elevator shoes all the time and get a boost of 2 inches or more, for example. Lets imagine that you went to some friend's house and needed to take them out. What would your friend tell you when he/she saw your shoes ? Did you ever think of that ? Probably he/she would make fun of you, isn't it right ? What would you feel at that time ?
I say this to everyone, tall or short doesn't matter, just be yourself and trust in yourself, be confident and accept yourself like the way you are. There are more important things in life than height.

Sneaks said on 3/Jan/09
My question about these kinds of shoes is what happens when you take them off? If you walk around a bar or club looking like you are 5'8 then wake up with a woman at only 5'4, dont you think they are going to find it just a bit peculiar? Reminds me of the episode of Seinfeld where George refuses to take off his timberlands the entire episode so that his new gf wont know his real height.

What are Elevator Shoes?
Elevator shoes are also known as height increasing shoes, lift shoes or shoe lift shoes. They are specially designed to invisibly increase the height of the wearer. The basic idea is to put thick insoles (lifts) in the shoes, so that the wearer can get taller. (See “Inside Elevator Shoes” for more information.) Elevator shoes look normal from outside. Well designed elevator shoes are as comfortable as normal shoes. It may take several days for wears to get used to it. Normally, elevator shoes increase 2.5-4 inches in height. There are 5 inches extra-height elevator shoes, but it will loose comfort and is more noticeable.read more:Click Here

If height translates into money in your world just wear some stilts. Imagine the money could make then eh? Get real. Bill Gates isn't that tall. Tom cruise - small and earns possibly the most in hollywood.
Hey, You are totally right but it's not the best example... Tom Cruise is small but make a lot of money... While wearing his favourite 3to4" extra height elevator shoes!!!
-MR.RICO187 says on 17/Sep/08
To that I answer: OF course you don't see it! Have you ever visited a height increase online store? have you ever wear some yourself? It's invisible or you didn't choose the good company (nothing to do with the shoes you see in the image above that are pretty obvious). They don't start to walk funny either because of the shoes so don't waste your time trying to spot them, you won't be able to do it in most of the case (maybe if they wear the shoes from the image above with shorts you will notice it)

hey friends, If it makes you feel better about your height, go for it. I'm 190cm in the morning and get to about 188cm by night and out of my circle of 7 buddies, I'm the 2nd shortest. My buddy who is shorter than me is 5 foot 7 and he says he gets a real confidence boost when he wears his lifts (bringing him up to a tall 5 foot 9).

Did you see Stallone on letterman. They looked the same height when they shook hands. Stallone's listed at 5'9 and Letterman at 6'2, so that must meen he was wearing 5 inch lifts. How's that possible? Check out the clip on youtube, they seriously look the same height

Letterman is listed here at 6'1.5" and David was an inch taller. Regardless since David was wearing normal dress shoes(about 1") he'd be 6'2.5" in shoes making Sly 6'1.5" in his shoes. Take away about 3" for Sly's lifts/elevator shoes and you've got Sly at 5'10.5" which is what I've been saying he is.
Vibram said on 6/Nov/08
I say where lifts or chunky soles at interviews if your 176cm or below (white guys that is). Aim for 181cm+ in your footwear and you'll be considered tallish.

I say this because it's been proven the jobs are nearly always handed to the taller male if all other things being equal like educational grades. I know several -174cm (below 5ft8.5 ish) guys that have it hard finding decent employment even though they are as educated as 5ft11+ guys. It's as clear as ice the cut off is 5ft10 for mutual decency, with ideals of 6ft+ for business-like jobs such as banks, investors, retail.

Did you see Stallone on letterman. They looked the same height when they shook hands. Stallone's listed at 5'9 and Letterman at 6'2, so that must meen he was wearing 5 inch lifts. How's that possible? Check out the clip on youtube, they seriously look the same height

To all the guys out there worried about how tall you are, i give you credit for speaking up about it. I am 5'10" (i do not look strange, I am not fat nor am i ugly)My husband is 5'6" and i make more money than him. So do not give up and do not pay attintion to the idiotic coments on the blog. If the elevator shoes gives you that extra little confidence i say go for it.
Tom said on 4/Oct/08
That's 100% true.
Being taller with the help of elevator shoes do have a psychological on you (you feel stronger and more comfident) BUT it also have a positive effect on the people you are dealing with. It's not a secret that people try to analyse you by your height, your stature, your clothes(and specially your shoes and even your socks), the car you drive and how clean it is,... So Using nice elevator shoes (nice I said!!!) gives you better height, better stature, more confidence, Good looking shoes (if you choose them correctly and from the correct brands of course!! I personally go on bugarrishoes.com)
And if it's true that taller people earn more money, don't worry... the nice car will probably follow!!!

If height translates into money in your world just wear some stilts. Imagine the money could make then eh? Get real. Bill Gates isn't that tall. Tom cruise - small and earns possibly the most in hollywood.

I bought shoes from Richlee Shoe co Click Here and they were very comfortable. I got about 2.5" as advertised and am as happy as a clam. The 2nd pair I got from them, I had to return, but got another pair of casuals and I love them. They have been in business since 1939 so I have no worries about getting what I ordered.

Anonymous/robbie h, your 6'0.25" which means its impossible for you to be 6'4" in elevator shoes, your prob 6'2" max in them.
ShortGuy said on 20/Sep/08
you know I'm only 5'7 but I wear elevator shoes that are pretty comfortable and I also wear insoles and I look 5'10, at first it was a little uncomfortable but I got used to it and now im comfortable and am pretty happy.I'm also very confident when I meet girls or when I meet new people because now I'm not the shortest of the group,well I just wanted to share my story

Yeah... sad but true!!!
height do matter. i think is more about self confidence... but it's true that the taller you are the easiest it is to have a lot of self comfidence.
It's good that we can cheat now with elevetor shoes... since I wear those a gain a little bit height but a lot of confidence (the effect is even greater as you are used to see everything from 3 or 4 inches closer to the ground)
Jeremy said on 9/Sep/08
Wooooooooooow Sienna those are some pretty retarded views. If height mattered as much as u think than explain how anyone under 6 feet tall has accomplished anything in life. You make it seem like you mind as well shoot yourself if ur not tall. I have plenty of tall friends who can't get a girl and are low lifes and friends who are shorter than me that get laid every night by gorgeus woman. You need to figure out was is important in life and stop saying stupid ****. I cant help if thats what you think but, at least keep it to yourself. Your not helping anyone by expressing your shallow views on the world. btw if it mattered so much to you im surprised u married a guy whos 5-8. Oh also about the evolution thing. I think you should take a couple anthro classes because humans were actually shorter and more robust, and being a good hunter had more to do with having the ability to use tools. That why humans over millions of years have become less robust and humans have now become more reliant on our brains instead of strength. I mean if height mattered so much with strength and the ability to protect Than explain why chimpanzees who stand 4 feet tall can tear our weak frail human bodies into pieces. Thankfully we have the ability to use weapons and therefore are on top of the food chain. Im not saying height doesn't matter. In some things(certain sports, in buisness, confidence, intimidation) it def gives an advantage but thats it. Just like being smart is an advantage height is to a smaller degree.

robbie H,

for my profession (I am 5'11.75'' LATE in the night and about 6'1'' when I wake, I have worn elevator shoes. in the mergers&a world, international meetings have a lot of people around 6'5'' and height matters- it translates in to money in my world. I can get up around 6'4'' in elevator shoes.,
BC88 said on 19/Aug/08
The only downside about the elevator shoes I have(mine are sneakers)or any is that you can't run as fast in them in sports(of course)and and a lot more liable to twist an ankle.And I already wore mine to school but I think I might go back to my normal shoes, but just for school, though. But the thing that stinks is now that everyone has seen me wearing them around and noticed my height, they would see a difference in that I'm slightly shorter, but still noticebly shorter. So I don't know. I am a male, just thought I'd say.
Tom said on 30/Jul/08
did you check bugarrishoes.com already? The shoes are comfortable and don't really seems "different". For the design it's just a question of personal taste but I think they have some pretty good models.
tom said on 23/Jul/08
I don´t agree at all!
Shoes lifts are not working because shoes are not made for it. You loose all the ankle support. You don´t have this problem whith the elevator shoes becouse they are specially designed for it. And if you bought them from a good company you can barely see it and they have lots of different styles like sneakers, dress, men and women casual so you don´t have to wear ugly shoes like several years ago...
shorty said on 20/Jul/08
I really would love using elevator shoes, since im only 172cm male.
I hate being this short, but i always use my converse all-stars. And they dont give me any height more. I havent found any goodlooking elevators yet.. too sad :(
B said on 20/Jul/08
All I have to say is this to everyone complaining about their height, you all could have been born shorter, so just except your selfs the way you are, your going to have to sooner or later.
B said on 19/Jul/08
Robbie H to answer your question, I am 5' 9.25 and I have worn lifts before and the tallest I ever was in lifts was 6' 0.5 so the tallest a 5' 11'' guy could be in lifts is a little over 6' 2'' depending on the shoes.
Greg said on 18/Jul/08
Are you serious???
Come on!
Everybody know that shoes do have a specific profile to help lock your heel in the back of the shoes. If you don't have that instead of comfort you will get some nice blisters! The problem whith lifts is that your shoes are not designed for them. It you put those in your shoes your heel will be higher than normal... which means out out the "heel locking area"... which means... you already guessed it... BLISTERS!
Elevator shoes are specially designed to avoid that problem...plus the lift inside them is glued inside the shoes to help it stay in place.
Seems to me that there is 2 logical explanation:
- You have funny feet
- You have special interest in this shoe lift company
I hope nothing is wrong whith your feet!!!
BC88 said on 15/Jul/08
I recently bought some athletic elevator shoes online and am fairly pleased but not entirely because the the site said they would make you 3.2 inches taller if that was true I would be around 6'1".(I'm 5'10" barefoot, at least in the morning) But I'm not and I only barely make it to 6'0" in them. But it is still pretty nice though because they do make you stand straighter and they are pretty comfortable and look nice. I just wish they could actually give you what they advertise.
Shep said on 13/Jul/08
I'm 5'7" and have thought about trying lifts several times. I typically wear Sketchers that have an inche sole. I've been wearing them for about five years. They're falling apart, but whenever I try on anything thinner my trouser legs hit the floor.

It's easy to make fun of short celebrities, but trust me, if you're short the world looks at you in a much different way. I can totally forgive them. However, I have to say it's got to be much worse being a regular guy who's short. No woman wants a guy who is eye to eye with her. And short women resent flirtation from short guys. And no boss wants a 35 year old man who looks like a teenager to represent the company. It's like the song says, 'short people (men, anyway) got no reason to live.'
mee said on 12/Jul/08
I have one pare of shoes, that are very good and elegant, but they only give 1-1,5 cm boost. I am 180 cm tall and in it I am 181-181,5 cm... I hate to see my friends who are the same height as I or little shorter to be taller than me just beacause I have flat shoes... So I would like to have 0,5-1 inch lift in shoes-just for that pair of shoes...
Sienna said on 11/Jul/08
All you people who think height in men doesn't matter are delusional. Height means a lot in western society and it does nothing to ignore it and say you're fine as a short guy. Girls are lucky because it doesn't matter for them-- I am 5'3" and have been professionally modeling since I was 16 (I am now 23). ALL the boys in my industry are at least 5' 11". When I first met my (now) husband, I thought he was ridiculously short at 5'8" and it was hard for me to see past it. He now wears elevator shoes and stands at 5'11". People very much treat him differently when he is wearing his lifts as opposed to not. He is extremely handsome with an incredible body, but that height thing just kills it. He is a business owner and his elevator shoes make all the difference in how people perceive him professionally.
Let's face it-- women want a man who is big and strong so she can feel protected and provided for. The bigger and stronger our ancestors were, the more able they were to hunt/gather food and protect the women from predators. That evolutionary link has survived through thousands of years and it will not die any time soon. A guy could be drop dead gorgeous with the best personality and the hottest body but if he is 5'6" his girl options are going to be very limited. That's the dismal reality. So, all you short guys out there, go get elevator shoes and see how people treat you. Mark my words: people will treat you better when you have those extra inches. Quit living in denial and do something about it. I mean, if a girl is fat and has crooked teeth, she is going to be treated worse than if she got those teeth straightened and lost weight. It's the reality of western society, so instead of living in denial, take charge of your life and present yourself so people don't get hung up on your "flaws" (anything society sees as different) so that you won't have any barriers. Living in denial is not going to open any doors for you. Get elevator shoes and get on with your life.
Jeff Krause said on 17/Jun/08
I have tried several shoes from various elevator shoe companies and have found them all to be very uncomfortable. I Have also tried almost all the shoe lift sellers out there. The only company I have found that sold comforable and fairly inexpensive lifts for shoes is levitator lifts. I belive they only sell them on line at Click Here Hope this helps.
A_P said on 16/Jun/08
I love my Doc Martin boots, but they definitely add a lot of height. So much that I don't really wear them out anymore; I'm 6'8" and even one additional inch is too much.
Ben said on 9/Jun/08
oooo yeah!
That's right... but unfortunately they will see your height before your wallet! except if you really show the money when you go at a party. So even if it is right that if you are small but show the money you can have girls easily... A good pair of elevator shoes only cost you around $100 and are easy to find online
The Truth said on 28/May/08
As far as getting women is concerned, height can help but what matters most to a women is how much money the guy is worth.
Ben said on 23/May/08
No idea... Inches don't really matter... extra confidence given by those elevator shoes is. And they make you walk more straight. And everyone know that a bad back posture make you look less comfident! So add 2.5" and a straight upper back and you will feel like a complete new guy!!!
Last time I took my measurement was about 10 years ago and I honestly don't care about figures... I am just average (maybe 5'11 or so) or a little bit more if I wear my +2.5" Bugarri Shoes.
This forum is funny... looks like we're all mid school students arguing about who can pee furter than the other ones...It's a shame but that's just being human! Always compare what we are, do or have with other people and hoping that we beat them!!! ; )
Robbie H said on 20/May/08

t said on 14/May/08
gazinder: why do you care if girls are taller than you? any woman over about 5'9" looks terrible anyway... if you are 5'11 there is no way you are shorter than average lol
Todd said on 11/May/08
Hey guys, quick question.

I'm 5'7.5 and want a slight boost but also want something to help my flat feet. Do you guys know of any shoe inserts/cushios/etc that can add 1.5-2 inches in height and help flat feet?

Thank you.
quebecker said on 11/May/08
Hmmm, are these shoes really comfortable to wear? They look so bulky :S
Gazinder said on 10/May/08
ben I go to uni in London in outh Kensington, it's a very rich area, I am 5' 11" and feel short here, average height must be 6' 1", maybe in outer london with the immigrants it's not like that. But I understand how you feel because I'm 5' 11" and feel short. There are girls taller than me here in flats ... plenty of them. :-(
Tony G. said on 30/Apr/08
Robbie H,

I own two types of elevator shoes... a 3" lift formal and a 2" lift sneaker-type. The formal one is not a good choice for walking a lot. The sneaker one is actually kind of comfortable. Not as comfortable as regular sneakers, but I wouldn't hesitate to walk 1/4 or 1/2 mile in it.

I think the 3" one is actually more like a 2.5". The 2" one seems accurate.
ben said on 17/Apr/08
echo i feel u completly man. im origianally from london, UK where the average height is lower tha the rest of the UK due to huge immigration, and height never occured to me. However, i now go to university in hampshire, UK where the average height is one of the heighest in the world and 5"10 is seen as short for a guy, im 5"8.

However, thank god i have my good looks although, not only 99.9%(literally only met one guy shorter than me) of guys are taller than me, 60% of girls are too. oh well, just need to rely on personality
Yaspaa said on 15/Apr/08

BC88 said on 12/Apr/08
Man I should get some of these! I would get one that adds 4 inches to my height. That would make me about 6' 0 1/2" to 6' 1". That would be awesome. Although I am still growing anyways,(I'm almost 16)it would still be cool to have them.
echo said on 31/Mar/08
Wow, i must say, i just spent 20 minutes reading through all of these comments, ha. I'm a 22 year old 5'7 guy and, by the graces of God, is extremely good looking. I find a gal who is eye level or a bit taller very sexy. I have only once been told I am too short by a girl, and that was in this month. It totally threw me, I felt totally crushed and pissed, but the truth is, I am what I am and I have a million things going for me. If a women can't see past a one inch diffence, and just enjoy your amazing personality, well, I'm sorry, screw her, ha. Live life, guys and be happy for your health and all that you have. In the words of my dearest mentor, 'JUST DON'T GIVE A F@#K,' ha. Peace and God bless., I'm out.

yo this whole "elevator shoe"thing is rediculous, average height for american men is 5'7 to 5'8 for women 5'3 to 5'4 or somethin close to that, so dont worry about it, looks matter more than height anyway so if ur ugly and fat, save that 100 bucks that you would spend on "elevator shoes" and put it toward plastic surgery, or better yet just be happy with yourself and how you look cuase no matter what you say, what really matters is how you act not how you look, whats on the inside is what counts and if its a really hot chick/dude that ur trying to get with, then their not worth being with if they dont see how nice of a person you truly are on the inside, and if they reject you well then you've just found out that they werent even worth the exorcise of walking over to, most woman or dudes are more impressed by ur charisma,confidence,sense of humour,persistence,charm,and overall cool thing that makes you you then looks so chillax its all good and have some fun with it, and this is comin from a average looking 5'8 18 year ol american dude im wise for my years and ive found that its true,so peace.
Height Fiend said on 15/Mar/08
My mate bought a pair of Elevator shoes over the net that advertised a 3.5 inch lift, he expected to get at least 2 inches but to our shock when we measured him, it infact yielded 3 INCHES! this is %100 true, he is 5'7 barfoot and 3/4 of an inch shorter than me, but he is 5'10 in these shoes. He wears them alot and people just dont notice, when we are at the bar, i am just under 5'9 in one inch pumps, he is still clearly taller, then we take off our shoes and i am taller than him, it is insane. But yeah a 3 inch lift is DEFO do-able cause 2 of us have measured him twice, barefoot and in the shoes.
Necrosa said on 19/Feb/08
I have 3 inch platform boots :)
Ben said on 8/Feb/08
You guys are right height is not the only thing that count... and most of all for girls! as jim said, a lot of tall guys loves short girls... my cousin is about 6.3 and is with a girl who must be 4.5 MAXIMUM... and his ex was just a little taller than that!
But most of girls want guys at least 2 or 3 inches taller... they want a guy taller than them... but they also want to wear heels and still be shorter!
but there is nothing to do with figures... 6.0 which aparently is the goal of most of the people here is already really tall... at this height the sky isn't the limit anymore... the height of your door is lol!
I'm about 5'7 or 5'8 and it is a good height for most of the time (my wife is 5.5') but I have a pair of elevator shoes (Click Here I like them a lot!!!) that I use sometime at work for example... I work in an marketing agency and I use them when I need to "fight" against other agencies to have the contract... and trust me it works! I can't explain why but people seems to trust you more when you are taller... what can I say, IT'S JUST MARKETING!!! If you have to chose between two identical product for a same price, you will take the one with the best Packaging...If at christmas a child see a small box and a big one under the tree, he would like to have the big one (not applicable for girls after a certain age... they know that diamonds are in small boxes ; ) ) A parently even W. Bush do have a pair (he is taller than 6.0') for meetings with people taller than him so he still look taller on the official photo... as I said... JUST MARKETING!
And it's true, some short guys can have taller girls, it's not impossible... but if you look at what "little boy" said, he did it!!! But you see, he is not sure about what people think about it... and most of the guys are just impressed by tall girls, so even if you can have them most of the time you just won't do it!
Richie said on 4/Feb/08
4 inches! FOUR INCHES?
Does anyone here even think thats possible? Seriously, get a scale and hold it o your shoe/boot!
Not even the bone crusher boots that Vin Diesel sports could get u that much!
Heck, Marilyn Mnason (aka Brian) wears a platform-lift combo with atleast 2 inches in the sole, an that doesent get him the full 4!
3 is the max u could aim for! Most people get 2.5 with a combination of platforms an lifts, an they still stand out!
The best you can do without being painfully obvious is 1.5!
im 5'10" (almost) an i struggle to look 6! i Know! ive tried!
Jim said on 4/Feb/08
So sad guys and girls!!!

I read over some of these comments and I'm so surprised at how self conscience people are about thier height!

I'm a guy who is thin and I'm about 6.0- 6.1 barefoot. I do not do great with girls my buddies who are about 5.8 get girls like crazy!

So guys it's not your height if you are shorter you can get girls like crazy...is 5.6 too short?? I had a friend that was 5.6 and had an stripper for a girlfriend.

I'm over 6 foot and I would without any question date a girl that was 5.0 as long as she was a nice girl and kept herself fit or thin height would be no issue for me at all. So stop worring if you are a shorter girl that no tall guys will want you...I would take you!

I'm in my thirties and going through life being over 6 foot I can tell you that there is no real advantage that I have ever seen to being taller.

Stop worring about your height!

Good luck to everyone!!

Little Boy said on 1/Feb/08
What is all of your opinions on a 5'8 barefoot guy...being with a 5'10 barefoot woman? Does that really matter? In regular shoes I stand alittle under 5'10...She however in regular shoes stands alittle under 6ft! You think that is enough to matter?
Robbie H said on 25/Jan/08
yes it did greg thank u
Robbie H said on 24/Jan/08
thanks greg, to be honest i dont really need to wear them as i am 5'11, but i wouldent mind being 6'1 lol, so if i were to get some it would probs be medium sized ones around 2"
greg said on 23/Jan/08
they are nice to wear... at least some models... I'm happy with the one I use, really comfortable and you have a good balance, which apparently si not every time the case. I have two models Modena +3.2" and Trieste +2.4" from Bugarri shoes and they are great! Of course, it is as it's said above it's the height at your heels wich means that you win a little bit less than that in real. If you take a small increase like the 2.4" you will nearly gain those...about 2.) and with the 3.2" wou will gain 2.9" and with the 4"... something like 3.4 or 3.5 I guess... And with your weight it can also reduce the height a little bit but it don't make a big difference,at least with good ones... It may be a good idea to avoid cheap shoes or simple insoles to reduce this problem... You only get what you paid for!... It's just the opposite from what I said above... if your insole lose fore example 1" at your heel, It wil only reduce your size of 1/2 an inch or something... And you have the same problem with most of the comfortable shoes on the market, so the difference is still nearly the same.
Is it to wear every day or only to go out??? If it's for everyday, try something like 2.4" first to get use to it... my step dad always wears the 4" but it's too much for me to wear everyday... I'm still a novice lol
I hope It helped you.
greg said on 15/Jan/08
just a question... are you reacting the same with girls with fake boobs????
most of the guys like it... but when it comes to guys who want to get a bigger dick or just to be taller everyone make fun of them... why? It's exactly the same problem...

french president Nicolas Sarkozy also wears some 4' increased shoes...
As I read below about Berlusconi, some people are also making fun of him because of that... But some people also make fun of him just because he is short... And people would have made fun of him if he was too tall or too fat. That's the price to pay when you are a powerfull man... some people hates you (sometimes because they are just jealous)and will use every possible solutions to destroy your image!!! And for the celeb, it's just good to see that they are not perfect, that like most of us they have things they don't like about themselves it makes them more...human!

I personally am wearing elevator shoes from Click Here It's just a few inches for but lot of extra confidence. I'am not famous and I don't have a lot of ennemies, so nobody can notice my special shoes... people only see what they really want to see!

Dudes. Anyone around 5'6" can't complain. Alright? I'm 15 and I'm 5'3"!! I think I've stopped growing... but geez what I wouldn't give for a 2 inch height increase! Does anyone know that if I work with a personal trainer that I could gain an inch and a half or so? Please! I need to know! I'm so short and I can't stand it! My bf is 6" and it looks SO awkward half the time...
N2 said on 29/Dec/07
Humans are drawn much stronger to natural confidence and charisma than outer appearance of few inches difference. Al Pacino, regarded as among the most charismatic and powerful actors in history, standing at or below 5'6". Kate Moss, a supermodel icon at 5'6". Tom Cruise..err..who knows how tall he is, but he sure ain't a tall guy. When you are at that level of confidence, then maybe you can put on height shoes to give it some kicks. My two cents.

I have a question for tall guys. Is it inconvenient to date a woman who is a foot shorter than you? There's a tall guy I have a crush on (not because he is tall!) who usually dates taller women and I'm wondering if I'll be automatically discounted. Obviously I have no idea what it's like to be a foot taller than someone. I wonder if it is annoying to have to bend over for a kiss, or a conversation in a noisy bar?
Vinny said on 15/Dec/07
please chris your in denial, average height might be below 5 '10 but certainly not 5 '7. A man at 5'7 is just plain short. In my opionion avergae height is from 5'8 to 5 '11.
Chris said on 10/Dec/07
It's funny to read over and over in this forum that people think AVERAGE height in the USA for men is 5'9 or 5'10. It's not even close. It is more like 5'7. I personally am 5'6 and trust me, sometimes I feel like I'm way below average. Especially when I'm out in a bar or club, where for some reason every guy seems tall. I really don't even bother trying to talk with girls even a little taller than me, based on previous experiences. I am considering trying the lift shoes just to make myself feel more confident. Being just 2-3 inches taller is the only thing I'd change about myself physically.

Uh, hey Max from Italy who said:

"Another note. Our EX (thank-God!) prime minister Berlusconi, is a billionaire and he is short, very short! He wears his elevator shoes and all the people are teasing him for that! Because he isn't simply able to accept his height.
So he's a clear example of how a short person can become a successfull manager and at the same time being so ridiculous trying to look taller."

Are you sure he wasn't wearing lifts BEFORE he rose to power? Maybe if he displayed his true height all along you wouldn't even noticed him enough to tease him.
bob said on 5/Dec/07
What's the point of commenting here if you're tall? You have no perspective.

1. Taller men receive higher salaries.

2. Not one US president in the 20th century has been under 5'11

3. *Most* women's online dating profile's REQUIRE "average or tall" height to send her a message.

So um, if you were 5'6" wouldn't you want to add that 1.25" the author thinks is so irrelevant? If you're 5'7" or above don't answer.

Of course if you wear special shoes then you have to avoid those 5'7" and up online profiles, which is probably a good thing.

Height is a game of inches.

Discussion over.

I am already taller than my friends, they're all like 5"3 and I am 5"7, and I am still under the average (I am Dutch)
Hélène said on 16/Nov/07
This discussion is so ridiculously funny. The elevator shoes are a riot! People should wear shoes between 1/2 of an inch of heel to one inch -- definately not more than two inches on a regular basis. Wearing no heel at all is probably not good for our feet or backs when walking long distances. One-to-two inch heeled shoes look more natural. Shorter people as far as shoes are concerned have more fashion options than taller people -- especially more than tall women. But whatever height a person might be is just one of the elements that make that person's physical description unique. Each has individual advantages. I am five feet, eleven inches plus three quarter's of an inch tall when I measure myself and five feet and eleven and a half inches tall when measured by a doctor who is five feet tall! I do not like high heels on myself because it makes me lean forward. On shorter females, high heels look more elegant because such people do not appear within inches of falling forward. I notice tall people in my own observations tend to move faster than shorter ones, but shorter people seem to be able to bend and climb easier. Maybe they have less back troubles too. The thing I find cruel is to have a short person's back on a tall body. Ancestors pass along such things. One thing of significance regarding height concerns children. I was a tall child. I was always put last in line on school photo day so the photographer did not have to adjust the seat until absolutely necessary. In hindsight, I realize some adults regard tall children as being older. This is so wrong. They are children and still need to be regarded as such. I suspect it is almost equally insulting for adults to regard short children as younger than they are.

Okayy once again!

I'm 14 and 5'8 ( i live in America, so i am 4-5 inches over normal womens height) And i have some shoes that are like these and in them i am 5'10-5'10 1/2 but they KILL my feet, i get blisters on the heels of my feet. But i like being taller, it's fun. But even being in 8th grade, i am taller than most of the guys. My only 3 guy friends that are taller than me, when i am flat-footed one is 6'1, the other is 5'11 and the other is (at 13!) 6'3. So i always find it diffucult to date...and to find shoes lmao.
emporium destinate said on 31/Oct/07
I'm 19 & 179cm/5'10.5 (in keeping with the site). My work shoes have an inch heel obviously making me appear an inch taller. I often find myself hunching slightly when talking to women, just because I feel rude standing straight and looking down at them. Yet when talking to guys who are taller than me I never feel small. It's quite nice being in the medium height range sort of 5'8 to 5'11. The only thing that bothers me it shrinking when I get older. Realistically by that time it probably won't concern me anyway.
jim said on 29/Oct/07
it's not always so obvious. Those shoes have a really big and weird outside sole, but you can also find some who looks a lot more natural.
I am wearing shoes from bugarri (Click Here) and they look way more natural than this.

I don't enjoy wearing these elevator shoes but i feel i have no choice. With them i get to about 5ft10. I am 18yrs old so i may stil grow another 1nch.

women.women.women.Tall or short? thats the answer previous post!
They do that dichotomy all the time , chatting they ask you if you are tall and they openly say `no, he`s not tall ` `he needs more heigh, more body` , do we men openly say `nope your hair is fake yellow blonde? do we say `no , she doesn`t have t.ts etc ? or she has less waist than a chicken?
.... it`s like the first ones doing
physical discrimination in public
are women. We men tolerate all; older, bleached,
ligher darker eyes or skin is not a problem ,
chubby and even ..poorer! yes! we can date someone from a lower social class !
something women barely do.
Check those single sites those 30s and up women still

I saw that TV show, and I personally believe that women picking men on that show were not good looking at all, typical 30s 40s corporate Shirleys

You want to talk about height! said on 14/Oct/07
It's odd that some people whom are average height or over 5'5 are having complaints about their height. Look at me I'm 5'3 I should be the one to complain. Everyone is usually taller than me and that's with women included. At the same time people think I'm still in High School but what they don't know is that I'm 28yrs old. Ya I hear that crap about, "oh your aging well you should take that as a compliment". Yes it sounds nice to hear that I look young but what the worst is when I don't get taken seriously whenever I go to places. That's the worst about being short everyone and anyone that is taller than you even if their short themselves thinks they can take advantage of this shorter person. Once again I'm 5"3 and not only do I get taller people that don't take me seriously but I also get the 5"5 people doing the same ****. I can expect it from a person of average height 5"8 and above but from someone whom is 5"5 and above is idiotic. I think because they too are short and now they can finally feel a little confident because their finaly taller than somebody in result they want to get their spot light. So pretty much those who comlain their short are just like others. Not only that but I've always had a dream to be an actor. Now how do you think I feel? I saw this special on TV 20/20, Dateline, Nightline something like I can't remember. But they talked about short men vs tall men. They did a test on women and most women chose the taller guy even though he was an average looking guy and had an average job. They asked the women what if we told you that the shorter guy is a Doctor and is very rich. She still chose the taller guy. But what I hated about that show was that the tall guys weren't good looking at all and the shorter guys were much worst. All the short guys were bald or balding and the women they asked were good looking. They should have placed a good looking short guy in there and then see the results. You see my ass is short 5"3 but the one thing I have going for me is apparently my looks. I have women of all sizes short or tall checking me out, receiving compliments on my looks, giving me hints on going out, telling others that I'm attractive, going out to places women look but the guys give me a bad look or even most of the time the guys give me bad service, and I also have had a lot of women approach me. Now from that info someone on this is going to tell I'm full of **** and I'm taking it to another level of conceededness. All I can tell you is these observations were noticed from my wife,friends, family, coworkers, friends of the women who are asking about me, and even strangers. But being a married man at 28yrs with kids that's all nice and very flattering but I myself wish I was at least average height. I do believe that taller is an advantage. We grow up to learn about morals and what's right and what matters. but what boils down to it is reality,truth, and fact which all do not have to be tested. It's in our faces everyday in culture and society being tested as we live. Tall people have an advantage and if your average height embrace it. If your short live with it because nothing can be done except for avoidance at the wrong place and move on. For anyone that is shorter that 5 foot I understand your pain but just always try your best! It's all about you!
Anonymous said on 12/Oct/07
elevator shoes are a scam....the heel in the shoes are generally quite heavy and thus make you walk imbalanced, rigid and clumsy as when you walk the force goes towards the back of the foot causing you to land your foot very heavily...hence they are easily detactable especially if they promise to give you a height increase of over 2 inches.

I'm 14 years old and i'm about 5'10 and i'm average height for my age here in the Netherlands, most boys are about my height and many boys in my class are nearly 6'4 but you know what they say about the Dutch; the tallest people of the world with the people of the Dinaric Alps. My mother is Asian and she is quite short and my father is just 5'11 so I'm not supposed to be this tall but I don't know, maybe Dutch water or milk makes you grow more

I'm 15 years old and 6'3 and I feel odd when i'm with my friends who are 6'5+. I stuffed my sneakers which brought me to about 6'5. My friends didn't really notice but i couldn't walk straight and I knew that they would realize that after a while. I'd rather be short than look ridiculous and tall.

cmon, its ridiculous,people who are tryin 2 become stars might wear lifts, bt stars are already selected, because they are tall and good lookin, not because they have 2 become tall and good lookin, it's as if everyonehad to be 6 feet tall in hollywood, u dont, but it sure does help bein 6 feet tall when lookin 4 a space in hollywood, but once ur in, unless u were usin lifts in auditions, there is no use for them.
Walking tall at 5'8 said on 4/Oct/07
I'm 5'8 barefoot and 21 and I tried out different methods to boost me to about 5'10-5'11 (custom insoles usually). I am an actor as well and I felt I had more presence with these few inches, only close friends and family really noticed my few inch jump in height since I am muscular anyways but I did project more confidence since I didn't always have to fear what the casting director or other industry A-holes would think about my height instead of my acting ability. After about a few months of appearing taller with numerous positive comments (some people think I am a 6 footer), I said screw it and decided to never wear lifts again after coming to a realization, it's not worth it when you have to take off your shoes for instance in a house or at the beach and you start getting all paranoid thinking someone will notice your dirty little secret and your confidence starts to shrink at such moments, yes you are lying to yourself for the sake of other people and other people just aren't worth worrying about. One thing I will say is that I now notice how many people wear lifts/elev shoes and are tricksters about their height, it looks somewhat shallow and I chuckle in my head every time I see someone tower over me with their shoes on but later take off their shoes and be shorter than me, I feel good wearing normal shoes and not having to feel pressured to be tall. All you ladies out there with those false premonitions and lofty standards... understand most men are under 6 feet, and the ones above 6 feet are not much different and in no proven way can offer you a better sense of security or love just because they happen to be a scant few inches taller. Seriously though, guys how are you going to defend your woman in the street in elevator shoes when you can barely focus on walking straight? Also shorter men live longer, are usually more intellectual, and in business/politics the real men in power are shorter than you would expect...why? Because I have met with these men and on average they are very short (I know a self made billionaire who lives in France that barely tops 5 foot 5), it is their puppets that are tall and promoted just for height because it is an illusion and they are easy to control if the only major thing they can bring to the table is their height. I would slap someone if they told me I had to be tall to be in management (in reference to post below). People need reality checks, I got mine after pretending to be taller.
JEWEL said on 27/Sep/07
First of all 5.8 is only 1 inch below the average for a man which is 5.9.

so i dont see how people can call that short.
cate said on 26/Sep/07
I think men who are 5ft8 are very handsome. It is a height where they just (to me) appear to be ideal because there bodies do not look like they will snap (as is my perception of very tall men). I am 5ft8 and I can find some other VERY positive comments to make about that height - although probably not suitable for this forum.
me said on 24/Sep/07
okay, I know a lot about this subject! So many celebs wear shoes or boots that jack their hight up! Take those boots that Shenia Twain wears. Lots of women and men wear those. They are shaped to the leg. They can up your height by 7 in. Brad Pitt? He is about 2 in taller than Jen. See him with Angelina or Geo. Clooney? He has shoes that are adding considerable height. Go to Graceland. Many of Elvis' boots are on display. You are standing on your toes in those things! His friend Jack Lord had the same ones (Lord was average height). Dean Martin always wore custom made elevators.
The consumer shoes are no where near as high as the custom ones.
Oh, to the guy who is 5'8", no, you are not short.

i'll give you some answer said on 8/Sep/07
i will say for one more time that you when you buying an elevator shoe promising 3 more inches it's propably true.i will explain this to you.if you stnad in your toes you get the best 6cms(having a normal man foot).so if you buy a pair of shoes that promises 3inch lift is propably fake because you just can't go any taller!but there is hope for ones who want desperately gain some height.if you lift shoe is a little plattformed let's say the front part have 2 cms lift that means that u can stand taller for 2+6=8cms(3.1 inches).so it's possible to grow up to 3 inches with a pair of shoes lifts.

Onno said on 27/Aug/07
William, it depends on what you like. You're right about that. I personally think a couple looks good together if the height difference isn't too much but maybe that's because I am tall, not big. I'm a slim guy so walking next to a 5'1 girl (same as your 6'4 with a 5'3) would make me look strange and out of proportion. As opposed to when you're big and tall it probably does look good if you tower over your girlfriend.
dmeyer said on 19/Aug/07
i think you are better of if you wear lifts inside your normal shoes if you have boots who have 1.25 in you wear 1.25 inside you will have 2.15 in over barefeet you want have 2.5 since you loose some in the pivoting but if you wear elevator they to make it too comfortable they were advertize 3.5 in 9 cm and they give only 2 in even thaugh the very was 3.5 in if you buy regular dress boots 1 size over you size you put 1 in inside you will get the same if not more but it wont be comfortable

I'm 184cm bare foot, but I wear a little bit of insole to carry me up to 187-188 when I'm wearing my shoes.. I know it doesn't make a great deal of difference in the grand scheme of things but I just feel a bit better doing it. I was really tall growing up and then I just stopped so I had grown used to the benefits of being percieved as quite tall even though by todays standards I'm anything but,so I decided to get a little boost! Love it!
Anonymous said on 16/Aug/07
Quote: With respect to shoes or trainers, if a celebrity is getting 1 true inch of lift they are doing a good job, 1.5 inches of lifts in their dress shoes they are doing a remarkably good job, anything over 2 inches of actual lift and they are eclipsing Sly Stallone's alledged Munster sneakers.

Do you mean these inches over the barefoot height or over the normal sole? I have bought a pair of these shoes and they give me 2 inches of extra height.. Still...the difference between the top of the sole and the ground looks more then 3 inches! I know I'm 5 9 barefoot, and 5 11 with these shoes. Your story must be right.

ash, you say non-sense.there are many undetectable elevator shoes.i think that anyone who wants to raise himself a bit should wear lifts.there is nothing wrong with that.and i can assure you guys that the secret for extra height in your lifts you must enhance the front part of your shoes.one more thing...people if you don't know about elevator shoes u can shut up and stop dissapointing others.Also,a lift that promises a 2 inch raise it's probably true.I know this from experience.Giving yourself a lift more than 2 inches it's more difficult but i totally agree with rob that with boots 3 inches are easily attained.cheers

What are these shoes about? They look like blocks, something I envisage Frankinstein wearing. This is a no win sure they give you more height but run the risk of looking ridiculous. It should be illegal to own these things.

Why wear lifts? No-one should be ashamed of their height (except for pip squeaks lol). I'm 6'4 and I've got a friend who is about 4'11, I don't consider myself better or worse than him (probably because for 14 year olds we're both on the extreme ends of the spectrum lol).

So if you are 6'5, you're probably looking for someone who is at least 5'9. Good luck finding one. I'd rather be average and have more possibilities."

I disagree, I prefer much shorter women, in the 5'3-5'7 range, I think shorter women look for a man who can protect them, i.e. a bigger man.

Does anyone here make their own shoe lifts? I do. I use a sandle/flip flops of 1 inch of lifts since I don't want to make it obvious., I cut the sandle to the size of my heels, then I heat a cooking pot for a bit to design it similar to the shoe lifts I C online. THey work great. The last one I make was about 1 year 1/2 ago and they still the same. I know this my sound crzy but it's not. It's being creative. Plus I save $ and don't have to worry about changing it every 3 months.
Onno said on 23/Jul/07
height does matter, for people who think it doesn't. I believe most men feel more comfortable if they are a bit taller then average. I think towering over somebody is a bit too much. If the average height is about 5'9, I bet that people would rather be 5'11/6'0 then 6'3/6'4. Here in Holland average is 6'0, I'm 6'2 which is a bit above average but there are a lot of people who tower over me.. I wouldn't want to trade with them. My girlfriend is 5'7, she could've been 1 or 1,5 inch shorter. More would make the difference too much. So if you are 6'5, you're probably looking for someone who is at least 5'9. Good luck finding one. I'd rather be average and have more possibilities.
(In my opinion, I'd rather have a 2 or 3 inches taller girlfriend then towering a foot over her!)Anyway, to stay on topic.. There's nothing wrong with lifts, you should try and be who you want to be.. If you vision yourself to be more perfect with 2 inches extra, do it! People who ridicule people who wear lifts are sad!

I would hate to be a stickler and by no means do I mean this as insulting but purely out of subjectivity.

"Plus, when we're cuddled up in bed together and I'm resting my head on his chest we can't even tell there's a height difference, so who cares? ;)" - Asia

If this is the case then height must matter and the difference in height must matter to many women generally speaking within a male-female relationship. I mean you said in your post previously that height doesn't matter but then you are comforted by cuddling laying down and being able to rest your head upon his chest which is a position seen as typical subservience of power in favor of the male which seems to be preferred a lot of the time in a relationship.

It is what it is, and we can downplay things, but I think that doesn't help we know it's there, acceptance to these facts and opinions by society and then moving on is the best cause.

I am sure women fall susceptible to body image issues as well, I am sure a boyfriend can comfort his girlfriend about what she perceives as being fat but that usually doesn't resolve the issue.

If you're 5'9.5", why worry? Notice that they only make elevator shoes up to around an average guy's size. Above that there isn't going to be much of a market for them. So you're right at the top end of the range. Wearing them might make you look insecure to other people, too. I wouldn't bother.

Haha, women hate elevator shoes. And actually men's shoe soles tend to be .5 to .75 inches tall, which I imagine is shorter than women's shoes, so it's not a bad deal. Although they look like an uncomfortable thing to wear for life.

Editor Rob said on 21/Jun/07
Those bugger shoes look better designed than the hong kong stuff. But look at the amount of leather you need to have on shoes just to get a 1-inch proper lift, its a lot. You can spot these shoes when someone sits down.

dmeyer, 4-inches is possible total gain with a boot, but your feet will be at a ludicrous angle. Normally 2-2.5 is the range with all these elevator shoes. You can get 3 easily with a boot though, see the 2 boots on the bugarri page, you need a heap of leather to hide the 1.7-2 inch of actual lift that's in there just to get the overall 3 inches.

dmeyer said on 20/Jun/07
it means that the absolute max you will get from elevator boots will be 3 in if the are 4.25 in total and likely only 2.5 to 2.75 nike shoes with 1 in lifts give you 2.25 in but if you have a 1.5 in heel outside you might be able to go to 3 in if there is 2 in inside but id there is only 1 in then it is hard to get more than 2.4 to 2.6 over barefeet nike shox already have 1.4 so it is easy to get over 2 in with ilfts

I feel bad reading some of these comments from short guys! I don't think height should matter at all. You can be sexy no matter how tall (or short) you are. I'm female and 5'9" and engaged to a guy that is 5'4".

What's sexier than a tall guy is a guy who accepts his height and doesn't feel inferior because of it. At first I was self-conscious about my height when I went out with him, but his confidence made me get over my insecurities really fast.

Plus, when we're cuddled up in bed together and I'm resting my head on his chest we can't even tell there's a height difference, so who cares? ;)

Chris , I have a pair of cowboy boots that have a 2 inch heel on them. with jeans on you can barely tell. With a slim oder eater, to prevent the boot from slipping, I am at 6 feet tall. Interested?

ChaseMe, look up Hazel Blears on the internet. I don't know how much you'll find, but she's a British MP who is famous for riding motorcycles. And she's somewhere between 4'10" and 5'0", so it is possible.

If u wanna wear elevator shoes
two basic laws
1) less than 3 inches please, anything more too ugly and unconfurtable
2) For when u cant wear elevators, bye normal dress shoes with like , they say and average dress shoe is between 1 - 1.25 inches, by the 1.25 ones !!
A nike shox , which gives like an inch 1.5, flip flops with SLIGHTLY THICKER
soles, yes exactly, not platform just slightly thicker, not more than the average ones, they will not only make you taller but make the shock from when u take o th elevators smaller.

did u guys understand
send a comment if u think its usefull
