🎂🎁⚽️ Happy Birthday David! ⚽️🎁🎂

Have a superb day, you good sport, charity worker and Father. 😁

5ft11. Far too young to have lost any height!

Rob, here is David Beckham with 1.82cm listed Ander Herrera Click Here what are your thoughts about this? I think at least 2-3 cm difference in this picture.
Editor Rob
180 and 182 still seem believable enough.

I think he is solid 6 feet with his foot advantage

Yeah it seems like around this height (5’11 range) is when a guy can really start to look tallish and very well proportioned. Solid height.

Here, (180.3 cm) David Beckham with (181 cm) Iker Casillas and (185.4 cm) Cristiano Ronaldo. I see more than 1 cm difference between Beckham and Casillas, also in multiple pictures where they are together. Can you check it Rob? He might be exact 5”10
Editor Rob
5ft 10.5 is a figure he has looked on occasions like that.

I don't know if he's 180 or less but I am sure Ancellotti is 1.79cm, same height as me and I met him, and if you see pictures with david and ancellotti, david looks shorter
Miguel Calado said on 27/Jan/19
still don't understand the 5ft9 in his book...
Editor Rob
An honest mistake...probably just not spotted.

Just the other day I had a function I was trying to change and it's only about 20 lines of code. I spent about 2 hours trying to figure why it didn't work, and was about to give up when I notice a variable had a lowercase letter when it should have had an uppercase 🤓

He looks a strong 5’11” by Will Smith:

Before people jump to the excuse that the ground is uneven, it’s only by a slight fraction. The footwear is uneven by no more than a centimeter, so I see two inches tops between them.
James Brett said on 17/Jan/19

I'd still keep them around current heights, but Beckham has at times seemed 5ft 11 and a little, he can pull it off.
c-mo said on 16/Jan/19
Rob: Beckham at times has looked 181. Owen is what you could say is a 171-2 range guy, with 172 being the most I'd estimate him as.


and what height is the footballer on far left on the last pic ? what is your guess ?
Vibram said on 15/Jan/19
I think A flat 5'11 (180cm) is spot on for him. 3/4 inch taller than Giggs, 2 inches taller than certified 5'9 wayne rooney.
c-mo said on 14/Jan/19
rob you have met michael owen and listed him as 172cm

david beckham seems to be rather 182-183cm standing next to michael owen . what do you think ? it looks more than 8cm difference to me personally

edwards said on 26/Dec/18
he was measured exactly 180cm during his time with manchester united at 2003,so there is no doubt he is exactly 180cm not less and not more
TheGreat said on 3/Dec/18
@Rob, I am 179 cm, would the difference be noticeable if I stood next to Beckham?
and what do you reckon his evening height is?
looking forward to your reply
Editor Rob
There are some photos of Beckham with someone like Giggs Like This in which you'd think they are the same height...Giggs himself basically claimed 179cm. 1cm at times can seem barely noticeable, but other times it can look more than it is. I'm sure there are actors I've met who I think are 1cm taller or shorter but it's not appeared like that.
edwards said on 14/Nov/18
@rob ,do you think 5 feet 10.5 is arguable,he can look 5 feet 10 at times with prince harry or william.posted by poster marcusthesweden ,beckham look exact 2 to 2.5 inch over corden who is 5 feet 8.and by the way most of the people are claiming beckham like 181 or 180.5 when he is clearly listed as 180 cm during his career with manchester united,why is it rob,he is 180 cm when at manchester united and people argue about 180.5 or 181,does he has a growth spurt that took him to 181 or what rob,i believe nobody gets a spurt at 25 years ,he was exactly 180 cm and how can he be 181 or so on,he can look 5 feet 10 at times,but imho he is 179cm what do you think rob,hope to get reply from your side
Editor Rob
I would be more surprised if Beckham measured 5ft 10.5...
MarcusTheSwede said on 12/Nov/18
He is 177-178cm look at video with James Corden 173.4cm and see it doesnt differ more then maximum 3-4cm. Just look for gods sake. Beckham is 177-178cm without boots. Click Here
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Nov/18
180cm is legit when he looks it with 185cm Obama so 183cm is a shoes height he looked. Don't get fool by his hair though.
strawberri said on 27/Sep/18
Rob, I want to know why does he look so tall? he looks like a legit 6 footer. So is it his posture or does he wear lifts ?
Editor Rob
Any solid 5ft 11 guy can look taller at times. He's not got a big head, which also helps.
Tango said on 14/Sep/18
Rob so here with charlie hunnam who is listed at 183 cm he looks the same height. So i think that maybe he is 183 cm tall or maybe charlie hunnam is not at his listed height.
Click Here
Editor Rob
He can look pretty close to Charlie, maybe 181cm range as his hairstyle looks thicker.
Alex B said on 10/Sep/18
He is billed at 6 ft flat. I do not believe he is 6 ft I would say around 5.10 or 5.11 feet tall.
HonestSlovene said on 4/Sep/18
he can look as low as 5'10.5" and as high as 5'11.25". Never seen him look a flat 5'10" and 6'0". In the pic he looks shorter than Figo, who is 5'11".
Dinho1999 said on 4/Sep/18
I was going to post that photo pointing out on how beckham looks considerably smaller even when (imo) he is a legit 180cm but on Real Madrid’s Instagram page there is a picture with Carlos, beckham, Figo and beckham has at least 2 inches on figo but yet in the group photo due to a lowered floor or because he is further back than others it’s given the illusion that he appears around 2 inches smaller than his real height.
James B 172cm said on 29/Aug/18
Well he certainly can look 5ft10 range next too prince william at times.
cmillzz said on 23/Aug/18
Lol, flat 5’10 is a joke for him.
May00 said on 22/Aug/18
5'10 for Beckham isn't exactly unbelievable tbh, considering his picture of him with his son Brooklyn who is listed as 5'9.5 on this page, they look exactly the same height. Give or take maybe half a centimeter.
niranzan pandey said on 11/Aug/18
rob,first of all,great job for creating a celebpage.hope you will respond.i have meet beckham in berverly hills and and must be 5 feet 10 in my honest the way i am a legit 6 feet guy and beckham seems to be 2 inches shorter than me.5 feet 10 could be arguable
Editor Rob
I don't think many would estimate Beckham under 5ft 11, it's surprising to hear he can look 5ft 10 in person.

Roy Keane is 5'10 or 5'11..looks similar to Sir Alex
Canson said on 15/Jul/18
@Honest Slovene: that looks right. He’s not noticeably taller than Allen Iverson. If anything similar. AI is around 5’10 1/2 barefoot at a low
Randomdude12 said on 13/Jul/18

I'm surprised you don't have a page for Roy Keane

arguably the greatest footballer to come out of Ireland and ex Manchester United captain
HonestSlovene said on 12/Jul/18
5'10.75"-5'11" IMHO.
Frankie said on 10/Jul/18
Gracian must be David's press agent lol!
Judging a person by his appearence next to a much taller man is pretty misleading, because taller people tend to slouch a bit to, you know, speak more easily. You can clearly see in that pic of Beckham and Ronaldo (the brazilian), where Ronie has his bust tilted. Same with Zidane.
Wayne Rooney isn't probably a full 5'9 himself.
Truth is if a man like David Beckham put his height at 5'11 in his official autobiography , that's the absolute maximum he could reach.

And by the way: ALL athletes are officially measured in shoes.

He really looks bit over 5'11". Rob, have you seen enough to give Beckham at least 1/8 of an inch over 5'11"?
Editor Rob
181 is a figure many would estimate him at. Maybe he still has a chance of it.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/18
Beckham look almost 2" shorter than 6'0 3/4 Zidane how can he be 5'11 1/4?

I could argue about 5'11.25" because he really looks closer to 181 cm than 180. Rob, can you give him at least 5'11" and 1/8 inch? Please, Rob, answer me.
Editor Rob
Beckham could be argued to be a little over 5ft 11, I think many people would also estimate that he might measure just over 5ft 11 flat.
Canson said on 19/Jun/18
Zamp, they’re close. Maybe within 1/2”. Beckham could dip slightly under the mark as well and only be cm or 1/4” taller. AI o would estimate at a weak 5’11” not a solid 5’10 like some say or a strong 5’10
HonestSlovene said on 16/Jun/18
179 cm is closer for him than 181 cm but overall I'd say 180 cm is spot on. Maybe 179.5 cm after training.
MAD SAM said on 4/Jun/18
Debatable could be a 179 cm guy
Leno179 said on 2/Jun/18
5'11 not a single more or less
Zampo said on 23/May/18
@Canson, just checked the pics and I say they do look very similar. They must be within a fraction of each other!
Canson said on 22/May/18
@Zampo: that makes sense as he looks similar to Allen Iverson in height who is about 5’10.5 at a low. Likely that both guys measured in the morning 5’11
Zampo said on 22/May/18
I think the metric system suits him. A 180 cm guy. I reckon 5'10.75, more often than not is what he would measure at the end of the day. 5'11 in the early afternoon, so a reasonable listing.
QM6'1QM said on 16/May/18
Beckham 6.5 cm shorter than Kaka (185.6 cm): Click Here.
Math: 185.6 - 6.5 = 179.1 cm (5'10.5"). It's a perfect listing for David Beckham. Nothing more, not taller!

rob regarding evening height . is there more of a chance of 180cm or 181cm for becks ?
Editor Rob
If we're talking evening, I think probably 180, but I can see how 181 during lunch isn't exactly impossible for him.
Mark182 said on 2/May/18
Looks 2 inches Shorter than Ramos and barely 1 inch taller than Robbie Keane so 5'10.
mikeyup said on 27/Apr/18
why would he list himself at 5ft9?

I think we can safely call the 5ft 9 instance a typo, that wasn't picked up on a read through.

James B 170.8cm said on 6/Apr/18
Greg- 5'11 men do lose more height as they age compared too 5ft6 men because of a longer spine.

5ft11 is actually quite tall its only 5 inches under 6ft4. That is not far off 6ft4.
Adnan said on 4/Apr/18
5'11" maybe 5'11.5"
Gracian said on 2/Apr/18
Rob, I suggests Beckham could be the first man on your website that would be listed as 5'11" and 1/8 inch.
James B 170.8cm said on 2/Apr/18
cmo- slightly disagree about having no health issues at 5ft11.

Your more likely than a 5ft7 man too develop cancer because you have more cells in your body

You will lose on average more height as you age compared too a 5ft6 man
c-mo said on 30/Mar/18
he is a very good looking man and his height and also proportions look ideal or almost ideal and very aesthetic . just google him with other people (like search for : david beckham group photo) I am always saying that 5'11 - 6'0 are the best heights a man can be

- you are a little above average but dont tower people
- not too tall in any way and not short
- blend in with people and not sticking out even when you are a little taller than many men at the same time
- dating : matches very well with women of most heights wether they are short or tall and women from many heights will like your height
- clothes , beds , cars/busses/planes ,doors , health etc etc = no issues in any of these things

the only thing that is a bit of a downfall (especially with 5'11) is that when there are many guys who are 6'2 and over around you you will get a bit "eclipsed" and might wish you were a little taller in such situations. but seriously doesnt matter because your height in itself is still very good looking and tall enough . there will be a lot of men who you will be taller than too dont forget that (in fact there are more men who are shorter than you than taller) . I mean you are even taller than average 5'9-5'10 guys let alone men who are under 5'8 and also a lot taller than the vast majority of women . and the amount of men who are 6'2 or over is still not that big even nowdays . at 6'0 you are more "safe" from such situations I just described . if you are a legit 182-183cm at night and have a good posture and maybe prefer thicker sneakers too you will be tall to many people anyway . I would say that 6feet even is the perfect height and 5'11 being great too and not far off from being perfect

dont get me wrong . of course taller than 6'0 is also good. I would say as long as you have the right build anything up to 6'6 or maybe even 6'7-6'8 has its own advantages and can be great . especially around 6'2 with the right proportions is phenomenal .

there is a black gentleman in the gym where I train who looks to be something like 6'5 or so maybe even a bit more and I sometimes envy his height when I see him and it looks really good on him. it has its own kind of special effect . but in general at somewhere around 6'0-6'1 I noticed that it is starting to get diminishing returns and some (even if only slight) disadvantages start more and more the taller you get. I even have known a guy who was "only" 6'1.5 or so who wished they he was a little shorter . on the internet many things are exeggerated and people either inflate their heights or talk stupid things but reality is different . the notion that when you are short you are less of a man or are weak and unattractive is also false . there are many men below 5'8 who are sucessful and strong , good looking etc. . of course there are disadvantages the shorter you are but people online make it seem as if short men have no chances which is just stupid .

and at 6'0 you definitely are plenty tall enough and it is the perfect height to be in my experience

but yeah 5'11 is phenomenal as I said and David Beckham is one of the living proofs of it (and there are many more)
James B 170.8cm said on 22/Mar/18
Rob was 180cm in his biography? 181cm guys might just put 5ft11 down as there height without bothering too say 5ft11.25.
Editor Rob
Well it was just 5ft 11, of course the Editor also made a mistake one year and had him as 5ft 9 - shows that proofreading can still lend to mistakes slipping through ;)

@James the real one

I agree, the Imperial system makes people get away with exaggerating their height more easily.
James the real one said on 26/Jan/18
@jjj Hi. You are the perfect example of why the United States would benefit from the Metric system, which is more accurate than the Imperial system. You say about David: "He's an inch off 6 foot, you literally wouldn't be able to tell the difference". Excuse me my friend, but you take advantadge of the Imperial system to be ambiguous. There are 3 cm of difference between 1.83 m (6 ft) and 1.80 m (5.11). Absolutely everybody can see the obvious difference between a standing 1.83 person and a person who measures 1.80. We all can see the 2 cm difference between Cristiano and Bale, go figure with 3 cm.
whyisntanonymousworking said on 13/Jan/18
He's clearly 5'9 at the most and probably closer to 5'8. I mean look at the consensus on Bradd Pitt now (apart from those so desperate to cling on to the epitome of what white masculinity is in their eyes) which basically points to him being 5'8 or under (barefeet with Gwenyth etc) but I don't want to go off on a tangent. Take a look at a picture with Brad and Becks, take in to account Brad's lifts and assumed footwear and bam, you've got Becks height. Growing up he never looked any where close to 5'11 on the pitch and in comparison with other players that height, hell no.
Michael said on 10/Jan/18
He looks 5' 11.5" (181cm or slightly more).

Guys like Cristiano Ronaldo, Mario Gomez or Mats Hummels are taller and way better looking. I don't think Becks would be a model if he weren't a celeb.

Ok, after reading all your comments and big drama I get it, you are not hetero. Nothing wrong with that but just leave all the drama and hate.

funny story my mate told me how him and Paul scholes were standing next too each other and beckham said while giggling "You 2 could be twins"😃
THeReel said on 13/Nov/17
That's true James ever since the birth of his daughter he has started looking MUCH older, however i've just started to realize that these comments we've been making are starting to get rather inappropriate for heterosexual males, so let's stear these comments away from this man's looks shall we?, btw how did he seem like he "was up his own arse" when your mate met him?, how did your m8 meet becks that's interesting, and also how tall did your m8 think he looked, cheers in advance. Because I think he's 5'11 on the dot with 6'5 stormzy
James B said on 12/Nov/17
Yeah I'd say Beckham was better looking in the 2000s then he was now.

Hes starting too get wrinkly now which is why you rarely see him clean shaven. If he had no facial hair or botox it would be shocking how old he would look.
TheReel said on 10/Nov/17
@anon176 remember Becks is getting on a bit now and the prime for male aesthetics should be early twenties to mid thirty's, after mid thirty's skin starts losing too much of it's elasticity, in his prime he had model tier facial aesthetics for sure

Rob hard question but do you think Beckham might take HGH?

His forehead seems too have grown much larger throughout the years which is a side effect of HIGH.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't dare to speculate, though as an adult taking hgh certainly won't effect your height...
lolo said on 26/Oct/17
I was watching his Instagram account, he looks 5´11´´ at least.
Do you think 181-182 is possible for him, Rob?.
Editor Rob
Beckham has pulled off looking over 5ft 11 at times...but overall I thought 5ft 11 flat was the best mark for him.
James B said on 24/Oct/17
He looks at least the same height as brad pitt
TheReel said on 23/Oct/17
He's 6 inches shorter than stormzy in the video of the too it should be on you tube still....
Canson said on 23/Oct/17
@TheReel: well you’re the one who first of all blasted SJH and then started saying someone is a bad person because you feel he “lied” to a terminally ill patient all because you feel he’s 6’5.75 and that he said and was measured by his wife at 6’4.75. I don’t think his wife is that dumb at least not as dumb as you. So who’s ignorant now. Someone who has never met the man saying he lies to terminally ill patients like you do? That is beyond ignorant and stupid to even say something like that about someone you don’t know. And I can care less about Kobe’s extra marital affairs. That is his business. You base your estimates for height off whether you like someone it appears which shows you’re biased. And yes I am happily married. No need to go there because I highly doubt anyone would even touch your dumbass not even a prostitute. So yes me making a comment like this to you was well warranted when you one go and attack SJH like you did and then go and make a comment about Kobe “lying to a terminally ill patient like that”. You’re a ****ing piece of ****. Why don’t you go to see a therapist.
Johno said on 22/Oct/17
Ferdinand was a few inches shorter than Anthony Joshua and has about ~6-inches on Ian Wright, so he could be a flat 6'3 possibly dropping to 6'2.75.
Canson said on 21/Oct/17
Agree with Junior on This one. And Christian is right both Lebron and Larry brown described AI as 5’10/5’11 as did a friend of mine who’s 6’0” that met him said he was noticeably taller than AI and pegged him 5’10 and change.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 21/Oct/17
Junior has a point. Rio Ferdinand my opinion is a very solid 6'3" and looks around 12cm taller than Beckham, so even if Rio's 191cm, it would make Beckham 179cm. And that matches up with how he looks similar with Iverson, who's around 179cm himself.
Johno said on 20/Oct/17
If he listed as 5'9 in his own football book that he has published, he might of been rounding down.

A flat 5'10 is what he is probably at.

I don't think Beckham is anything above than 180cm. Some fans claim him must be 5'11.5-5'11.75" sort of BS really unacceptable. If Beckham is 182cm than his ex team mate Rio Ferdinand would be 194cm. Just lol.
Canson said on 18/Oct/17
Looks similar with Allen Iverson. May dip under 5’11” in the afternoon but not by a lot

Anywhere between 5'10.5 - 5'11 ;)
5'10.75 sounds good for him!

@Guesser It's around 177 cm in the UK and 175 cm in Spain/Italy. The 175 cm figure for the Uk counts 16-18 year olds, who can still grow a few cm on average.

Here in London 6 foot won't feel anywhere near as tall compared to say Rome or Madrid.

Wrong. The average height in Italy and Spain is the same as in the UK (5'9).

@Appe I think Beckham is a little shorter. 180 at night. Ramos is 2-3 cm taller than him
Appe 183.3cm said on 7/Oct/17
Beckham wakes up 183cm and go bed 181cm. This is my estimation. I ve also seen a recent pic in Milan with Mattia De Sciglio who I met and is a legit 182cm. They look identical inthe photo even if we can't see the footwear.
rich said on 6/Oct/17
beckham has at least half an inch advantage in footwear from that pic below with murray

but hes still taller than 5'11.

somewhere between 5'11-6'

5'11.5 is my guess

5'11 is too small
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 4/Oct/17
I know that I've linked this photo before, but I find it to be quite interesting. With a 6'2" Andy Murray:

I really struggle to see 3" full inches between the two of them in this photo (or in any of the photos that the two have taken with each other), and it doesn't even appear as if Beckham has a footwear or a posture advantage (quite the opposite as Beckham appears to be slouching).
d-dawg said on 2/Oct/17
Rob how tall would you say Ramos is? because he's listed as 183cm, but he looks more 184 and 185 and times, unless he's a legit 6ft and other players have exaggerated heights lol

I still ain't sure on Ramos, he can vary from 6ft to under.

I saw him at a mall in Dubai in 2015 and he looked shorter than 5’11”. I’m 5’10” and he was about an inch shorter than me. We were both wearing casual sneakers. I would say he’s 5’9 1/4”. He didn’t look short but 5’11” Would be a lie.

@Ben, Ramos is 183 and Beckham 180 but looks a bigger difference as if Ramos was 184 and Beckham 179...or else!
Ramos with Raúl have an even bigger difference but I'm pretty sure Raul is 178 or maybe a sloucher 179.

The thing is in my days off I don't wake up earlier than 11-12 am. Perhaps it is not the same 3 hours after that than 3 hours after 7:30 am

@Johnson:you shouldn't be at your low after 3 hours that is unheard of. But I can see you losing the full inch 2.5cm if you are on your feet a lot and it would likely be at nighttime. My definition of a true height is maybe 5-7hrs out of bed. If you're like 1/8 from your lowest or at your lowest
Johnson said on 13/Aug/17
I actually think I shrink 2.5 cm, but it depends on the day, the funny thing is I get to my low early, most of all If I go outside, 3 hours + after waking up early, then I am already in my low, but sometimes relaxed at home before bed I am 0.5 cm more than my low. Similar to Rob's case I think
all haters said on 11/Aug/17
177cm. he is shorter than korean soccer play hong myung bo(182cm)
Canson said on 9/Aug/17
@Johnson: that's exactly the same with me I lose 0.9 typical in 1st hour awake and 1.9 for the day if I don't go to the gym. I consider the 193.9 my actual height and just round up to 194 or 6'4 1/2 as for this site but list myself on paper with drivers license and on Medical records i fill out im listed as 6'4" as my doctor measured me at 6'4 3/8 on my last physical
Canson said on 8/Aug/17
@Slim182: I don't understand that last statement. That celebheights lists early evening vs PM heights? Early evening is about 6pm correct? That is PM as far as I'm concerned and that's also typically what your set height for the day is. People here on the site generally do not understand that nighttime height and Mid afternoon are typically the same thing. Like Christian mentioned below in Rob's case that's how Rob measures evening 5'8 1/8 vs maybe a mid afternoon height. You also see in Christian's case he has his height rounded off at 196.5cm which is near his lowest but because the low varies a couple mm based on factors such as gym or being on his feet he can be 196.2 or 196.4 possibly at night. its similar to how I can measure 195.8 out of bed (6'5.08) and am 6'4 3/4 after an hour (194.9cm) which is a 0.9cm loss after just 60minutes of being awake and not even strenuous activity. Typical after 2 hours at least for me I'm near 0.5 inch loss (about 6'4 5/8) which is 0.46" from out of bed. Once you hit around 6-7 hours is when you typically begin to near your low. After 7 or maybe 7.5 hours I don't lose additional height unless I'm on my feet constantly or go to the gym 193.7 or 193.9. I tested once at 193.1 and once .2 but both are not normal and I only got that low because I purposely was on my feet to determine what my low was. If you test from that stage 7/8 hours until you go to bed under normal circumstances you will see it doesn't vary at all probably. Maybe 1mm.

Also You have to remember when Rob is discussing he is talking a normal day as well not when you have been lounging around. He has even said that when he meets a celeb he tries his best to be at his normal 5'8 1/8 or at best between 1/8-1/4".
Most of my assessments that I make tho are based on me measuring in the 6'4 1/4-3/8 range since I generally fall at 193.9 which is why I told you that you cannot assume that someone is claiming their lowest like where Hippo is 182 at his lowest and you saw where he admitted he isn't. He said 181. You will get people like me or Christian who claim the "range" of our afternoon heights 6'4.25-.5 and 6'5.25-.5 respectively or may get others for example Shane admitted he claims his out of bed height of 6'2" before but when he is analyzing a height he states that as well, and typically even guesses the height on both ends of Morning and evening to be consistent.
Johnson said on 8/Aug/17
@Canson I also lose 2 cm from out of bed to before bed

In 1 hour also I have shrunk 1 cm
Canson said on 7/Aug/17
@Hippo: you may be a hair over 181 on a normal day at a low. I also at 6'4 and change lose 1.9 on a normal day and that's with a pretty proportionate body long legs and decent torso. I wake up a hair over 6'5" and normally am 6'4 1/3 at night barring any circumstances

But I admire your honesty! Means when people claim as I mentioned to Slim182, one shouldn't assume that it's a low height because there are some that measure at their highest some lowest across this site. That said Beckham would likely come out 179ish but as mentioned that's prob close enough to 5'11" to get by claiming it
Canson said on 7/Aug/17
@Slim182: that's not correct at all about Rob. He has always been 5'8 1/8 at his lowest and that isn't a dehydrated low he has said before he has before dropped to a solid 5'8" as an absolute low (as far as being measured). If he wakes up 5'8.75-.8, 5'8 1/8 shouldn't be a surprise being the average person loses around 3/4" per day he actually loses less than that but has also stated that his peak out of bed was 5'8 7/8 which makes the 5'8 1/8 more realistic as a low. He has said before 5'8.25 was with the extra 1/8" from the stadio and that he is usually in the afternoon 5'8 1/8. He will sometimes go with a number between 1/8-1/4" to keep it safe not to downgrade anyone due to underestimating

As for one cm I do agree on that because I also lose about 1cm after an hour of being awake. Typically on a day where I'm leaving to go to work is when I did it most accurately and was 6'5.08 out of bed (195.8cm) and 194.9 after an hour then got home was down to 193.9 around 7 or more hours of being up
Slim 182 cm said on 7/Aug/17
Also canson, big robs a legit 5'8.25 man but when he's dehydrated (to avoid going to the bathroom every 20 minutes) he drops to 5'8 and one eighth. And if his body had little water in it it'd likely measure the flat 5'8. So yes, that quarter inch means a lot.

Just assuming you were judging from robs page. Cause I believe 1 cm is lost after waking(half inch.)
Slim 182 cm said on 7/Aug/17
But we list early evening heights rather than pm heights so... I'm confused.
Hipopotamus said on 7/Aug/17
Canson, you are right! I measured myself 183cm right after waking up and after a long day I was 181!
Now, this adds another variable to the equation of the model "guessing heights".
Shoes, possible lifts, posture, hair, time of the day...
Canson said on 7/Aug/17
@Slim182: I think s true definition of weak 6'0" is waking up at maybe 6'0.25-6'0.5 range rather than flat 6'. Example if a guy wakes 6'0 they're likely 5'11.25 at night which is a strong 5'11 imho. I think 5'11.5-.75 is weak 6 then above that is solid category up to a little over 6'
Slim 182 cm said on 6/Aug/17
Canson, to be fair, rob has 184 listed as 6'0.25 and 6'0.5 and it's confusing as 184 out of bed people are claiming weak 6' rather than flat. Wether as people who are 183.5 out of bed are weak 6 footers, and 184.5 out of bed, are close to the strong 6' range... it's why google converter is a really useful tool! 👍🏻And rob does round up half intervals(example 6'3 is 190.5, I didn't mean to rat out anyone I just want to contribute.)
Canson said on 4/Aug/17
@Slim182: I don't disagree he can pull off 5'11. But Hippo mentioned 2cm difference and he didn't state when he was measured time of the day. There are people here on the site who use their lowest on a normal day or thereabouts or people who also use their out of bed or midday height when comparing. I've seen it all here. But I know for my case and Christian based on my interaction with him over the last couple years he's speaking of an early afternoon (1/8" above normal low max or even normal low). That said Hippo could be 182 at his lowest or even a tad over or could be 181.5 at his lowest. Also when talking 2cm that could easily be 179.2-.3 since it's pretty close at that point. or could he be a solid 180 or 180.5 best case. Beckham even if he is below the mark is high enough imho where he could round up (from the looks of it). He looks a weak 5'11 to me minimum. Whereas Allen Iverson I have to believe Larry Brown when he said 5'10/5'11 as I have many people I've also heard say (themselves 6'0" or 6'1 or 5'11 areas) that AI is 5'10/5'11 as well also saw Lebron say he's about 5'10.5. Beckham may edge him by a hair 1/4" and we prob won't notice that easily tbh.

In my case when I've met a celeb (haven't met many recently other than Carmelo Anthony and Terrell Suggs in the past few years I've been on the site) I always used to compare them to myself at 6'4.5ish or how they look compared to someone else I know that's reliably the height they claim. Before I came to the site I didn't realize it really varied that much but come to find out I'm not even a full 194 at night so I have essentially knocked maybe an 1/8 off what I initially thought and if they are close enough to a listed height give them the benefit of the doubt like Anthony had me 1.5-2" according to multiple people my wife included and he looked 4-5cm taller than me so I would give him his listed 6'6.25 pre draft where he may only fall 1/8" below that.

In the grand scheme anyone could claim however they measure whether evening or morning but for consistency purposes I go with afternoon or evening since more people will inflate their height than downgrading themselves. Thus I don't believe in inflating someone who is already being honest about their height (although there are maybe one or two celebs here like Willig who I believe claimed 6'6" that I would say is 6'7").

Why would you try to inflate Hijopotamus to 183 when he clearly stated he's 182? It seems you're biased and want Beckham to be 181 any way possible. It's fine if you believe he's 181, but don't try to inflate people who you've never met or seen (like Hijopotamus) just to accomodate your beliefs.

@Slim: maybe my estimate was low at 5'10.5 but Christian has it at 5'10.75ish could be accurate. Him being listed at 5'11 in soccer just means he's listed there and it could be rounded up from 5'10.5 very easily. If I were maybe 5'10.5 at my lowest i would likely round up on paper to 5'11. I only don't now where I am because I feel it's tall enough at roughly 194cm to where I take my 6'4.33 evening measurement and round down to 6'4 (although I am often guessed at at least 6'5") when I wear sneaks

@christiyn, we can't even see their footwear in the Odell Beckham jr. photo either. 🤦‍♂️ Comparing him to guy Ritchie and Charlie hunnam is interesting.

The old college I attended 10 years ago currently caters to 3,700 students (not sure how many in 2007). So it's always been a heavily populated college but more to the point in the 2 years I studied there I think there was only 1 student who was somewhere between 6'5-6'7. There were some 6'3/6'4 students but 6'5 and over was virtually non existent. I find it interesting though because in the bar I go to every weekend where mostly young people attend (it's not a big club) I have spotted more than 1 6'5 guy on a single night out and have seen guys over 6'5 also.

Has the height for young people increased in England compared to 2007? Strange how in such a heavily populated college I used to go to it was so rare too spot anyone over 6'4 yet easier too see spot someone taller than that in a club. Actually come to think of it I am guessing the students who were 6'3-6'4 on campus 10 years ago could be taller now since the age range was 16-19 at the college. Where I live in England it's illegal to go into a bar/nightclub if you are under 18.

Mmm, Bale looks a good 2 inches taller..

Good to see Becks has gone back to the ponytail/manbun, his coiffed style lasted for years, most unlike him!. He looks his best with that look I think, but needs to stop with the botox and facial cosmetic treatments. The look he has would look better with wrinkles, Eastwood style.

Canson said on 13/Jun/17
@James B: 6'4 guys can. Shoes and hair and build do it. Especially someone who is a strong 6'4" like Bobby3342 or me. A true 6'4" even can because so many people lie about their heights that it appears to be 6'6" to so many. I see 6'3-6'4 guys claiming 6'5 all the time and one 6'3 in particular tried with me until I said I'll get my tape measure then it was 6'5 in shoes (he was 6'4 1/2" in shoes really) as I was taller in casual shoes than he was in sneaks. But that's the vicious cycle of lying and then expecting others to lie to cover it very lame
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 12/Jun/17
People in college campuses are slightly taller than the general population only because there's a heavy concentration of young adults, and young adults tend to be a bit taller than the middle-aged and the elderly. I would say college students are on average about 0.5"-1" taller than the general population.

Most college kids aren't 6'1"-6'2". I work at a place where a ton of kids from the universities come in, and I'm taller than almost all of them are, with me on lower ground (with less footwear on average). I'd say that they average 176-177 CM, if you're not talking about the sports teams that is.

Last time I went to Central London saw a big heavy guy in a crowded street who defo stood out from the crowd. I'd estimate he was 6'5 or 6'6. But it just goes to show you how huge that height range is if it can stand out in populated city like london.

6'3 and 6'4 guys can't pull of that king size look in public as well 6'5 guys can.

I have been to Central London plenty of times since I live quite nearby and it's never struck me as being that tall of a city.

Hard to say though really because it can depend on what time of year and how many people there are.
max said on 30/May/17
@ Nik

It's possible. Mostly around central london and public transport you feel as though the more central you are the average height goes up. Exceptions include University campuses, almost always filled with guys between 5'11 and 6'2. It's more crowded in the centre so it shouldn't come as a great surprise however.
Nik said on 30/May/17

Do you think that the average height for men in London has hit the 5'10" level or do you think it is just shy of 5'10"? In some areas of London though the average height for men will be at the sort of level that it is in other parts of the country, won't it?

Anyone who says that 6'4" isn't a really tall height, don't know what they're talking about. I don't care if you're in a college campus in Amsterdam, you shouldn't feel average or even just above average at 6'4". The only setting where you may feel average is in a locker room full of pro basketball or volleyball players.

Ok. You are right!
James B said on 27/May/17
Nik- I guess posture, build and hairstyle can play a role in how tall you stand out
Nik said on 26/May/17
@ James B

Yes I would say you are accurate in what you said but there are different levels of standing out, maybe 6'2" stands out but only to a little bit. I think you have got to be about 6'4.5" + or 6'5" + to really stand out!
James B said on 26/May/17
My definition of 'standing out' in public is when someone looks so tall there height holds your attention span. But I guess everyone has there own opinion of what standing out means.

9 years back I did know a 6'3-6'4 guy in college who was a rugby player, built like a brick wall who did look huge.

@ James B

I wonder why the 6'4" thin as a rake guy does not stand out in public?

Yes there is a difference between 6'4" and 6'4.5" but I would have thought that the difference is not big enough to mean that a 6'4.5" person who stand out on a lot more occasions than a person who is 6'4",

Don't get me wrong in public you can tell he's on the tall side but he still looks 'normal' like you wouldn't give his height a second thought but talking to him up close on even flooring his height is very striking. I think 6'4.5 is when you start to stand out as 'striking' not only up close but also on the streets.

I know someone who is also 6'2.25-6'2.5 who looks very ordinary in public.
Nik said on 26/May/17
@ Mike - Hi!

I would disagree to be honest. There are a hell of a lot of men who are 5'5" or 5'6" and I think there are more men who are these heights than those who are over 6'2"!

In a college setting I think it's fair to say 6'4.5 would probably stand out as very tall 'to me' (remember I am only 5ft7). In a city like London especially if it's crowded probably wouldn't really notice someone who is 6'4 1/2 range but I would probably notice heights like 6'5 or 6'6 more even if there was loads of people.

When I see my 6'4 friend out and about in public he just looks like a tall skinny guy not freaky tall, but kinda weird though up close on flat flooring he looks like a towering giraffe lol.

Heights like 6'3 and 6'4 flat even in a normal sized towns just don't stand out as that massive. Just my opinion.
James B said on 25/May/17
Nik I know someone who is 6'4 and rake thin who doesnt stand out that much in public.

However I know 2 guys who are 6'4.5 who stand out as huge in the town where I live.

I think there is a difference between 6'4 and 6'4.5 isnt there?
Nik said on 25/May/17
@ James B. @ Bazza

Even men who are 6'2" stand out but just to a lesser degree than men who are 6'3" or over, but it depends on where you are as well. In general 6'2" guys stand out in the UK but in a university campus or in certain parts of say London, I doubt it! I still think tall starts at 5'11" - 5'11.5" but such heights don't stand out except in some rural areas for instance.
James B said on 24/May/17
Bazza said on 24/May/17
@James B - good point. I have a good friend who is genuine strong 6'5 and even though i'm 6'2 myself,and we have a fair few of us circa 6 feet plus in our group, he has always been the one to stand out and always gets the fixed looks and comments on his height. people 6'3 and 6'4 are certainly stand out tall too in most situations but not like a genuine 6'5 plus guy imo.

6'3 and 6'4 guys don't always stand out that much in big cities like London or in campus settings
Mike said on 24/May/17
But you know, nowadays there is more men who are over 6'2 than men less than men who standing at 5'5 or 5'6. I think

I'd say in the UK 5'7 is start of short and 5'8 a very weak average. 5'11 is what I'd call a very weak tall/strong average.

I think that 5'11" is more tall than 5'8" is short with average height being 5'9" flat!
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 24/May/17
One problem I have with people discussing height, is the words "tall" and "short" are used too loosely. Some of you will call 5'11" tall, yet call 5'8" short.
Bobby183.5cm said on 23/May/17
I always consider myself tall, but not TALL kinda tall. If you know what I mean. At worst, i can feel above average or tallish depends on the place i'm at. Here in Malaysia, 5'11 is the start of tall.

Back in 2007 at college I was friends with a 6'3 1/2 guy who of course claimed to be "6'5 so with people like him claiming to be that height no wonder people don't realise what a true 6'5 looks like in reality. Recently I bumped into a someone who claimed 6'5 who looked way taller than my friend did at college.
James B said on 21/May/17
When I was in college 10 years ago believe it or not 6'3 or 6'4 guys didn't stand out as that ridicolous on campus. However I remember there was this one guy who I THINK was 6'6 (defnintly over 6'4) who stood out as being a genuine big guy even in a campus setting.

the 6'4 guys who would claim to be 6'6 in college made that height seem less impressive than it really was for sure.

I live in england by the way

@James B, I am 5'11.75 myself and I don't think 5'11 is anything special at all, the avg height where I live is 5'9 range,well in my university it's about 5'10, I feel barely over average and not tall at all , I've never been guessed over 5'11 let alone over 6' ,and never did got a comment from avg guy that I'm tall ,only some short guys like 5'5-5'6 range think I'm tall ,but my friend whose 6'0.5 gets comments over his stature , he's slimmer than me though
I guess real tall starts at 6'0.5 and very tall starts at 6'3.5

5'11 Is just one other normal height range 1 in 5 guys edge you out
Kaneff 6'0.25 said on 14/May/17
SHIVA182CMS said on 11/May/17


Yeah you're right 6'0.25" isn't special, it's weak tall at best. From my experience being 6'0.25" I feel weak tall in the general U.S. public and NOT solid tall. And at university there were many times I only felt tallish at 6ft and not even legit weak tall. Solid tall starts at 6'1 MINIMUM, that's when the majority of people will clearly see you as a tall guy. I don't see how 5'11 is even being considered as a legitimately tall height.
Kaneff 6'0.25" said on 14/May/17
People who seriously think 5'11 is "tall" need to spend 10 minutes walking around any college town or university campus, where it's mostly ages 18-30 and very few elderly people to bring the average down. I promise at 5'11 you won't feel tall or get called "tall" by anybody, and if you try to refer to yourself as being a "tall guy" at 5'11 you will most likely be met with weird looks or laughed
James B said on 13/May/17
A 5ft11 guy in the UK who has never been measured could easily be fooled into thinking he we over 6ft because he would tower lots of men he encountered in his day to day life.

I know a 5ft11 guy who thought he was 6ft1 until measured by his partner.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 13/May/17

Well how tall are you now? (You said you used to be 5'11", so I'm assuming you've grown since then)
Nik said on 13/May/17
@ James B

In my everyday life I come across just as many good looking small men as good looking tall men, it is random. The same is true with women. Someones sexual identity is a lot more complicated than just noticing that some members of your own sex are more good looking than other ones!
Nik said on 13/May/17
My opinion:

5'10" - quite tall
5'11" - 5'11.5" - crossover between quite tall and tall
6'0" - clearly tall

Well that's just your opinion. But fair enough.

I don't actually agree with James B much, but I agree with everything he said there.

When I used to be 5'11'' I used to feel tall.
Nik said on 12/May/17
@ James B @ Christian

I am 5ft 7 3/8! My height is no where near the first thing that people would notice about me, but I am still a little bit small! 5'11" guys do blend in more in many social settings but in quite a few social settings they stand out a bit as well!

@ James B

I don't think that a height has to be stand out tall for it to be classed as tall. I think that 5'11" looks pretty tall to me, and I would think to myself "that tall guy" about a 5'11" guy even though I don't think it's anything special.


I doubt that "tall" is the first adjective that comes to someone's mind when they describe a 5ft11 guy's physical features. The first thing people notice about a 5ft11 guy is usually their hair or clothes, not their height.
SHIVA182CMS said on 11/May/17

James B said on 10/May/17
Nik- how tall are you then? 5ft11 looks tall however 5'10 and 5'9 guys don't look tall just average however 5ft11 would look tall too me because I am quite short only measuring 5ft7 1/4.

And of course you can be tall and not stand out at the same time which is why 5ft11 is a respectable height. Also can I just add in my opinion that 6ft1 and 6ft2 guys stand out as being tall in social settings whereas 5ft11 and 6ft guys blend in more.

@James B

It might not be the best thing to label any height as "freakish", as it often has a negative connotation attached to it. But I do get your point, 6ft5 is definitely a standout height, although I wouldn't put 6ft4 in the same boat as 5ft11. 6ft4 is standout height as well, it's just to a bit lesser degree than 6ft5.

I recently met someone who claimed to be 6ft5 and he looked more impressive and standout tall up than someone else I know who genuinely is 6ft4.25. I think poster Arch was right when he said that a legit 6'5 stands out as noticibly more huge than the 6'4.5 range.

I agree with Christian but I think average stops around 180 cm. Guys who are strong 5'11" are in the grey area same as 6 feet on the nose. A strong 6 footer is what starts tall -184cm imo. Solid 6-7 cm over average.

A truth telling 5'11" is a tall person and looks tall which puts into perspective how tall a legit 6'0" really is as well.

Yeah no denying 6ft is taller than what many would think but it's still nothing all that special and doesn't stand out in the crowd. A true 6ft5 is what I would call a sight to behold in my opinion.

Tall guys in the 5'11-6'4 range don't pull of the freakish tall look like 6ft5 does although maybe a lanky 6ft4 can look borderline freaky to me.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 7/May/17
Sorry guys, but I don't really see a 5'11" man as being tall in western countries. You don't usually see 5'11" guys getting a ton of compliments on how tall they are. Sure, it might be a decent height, but it doesn't give off a towering aura unlike 6'0"-6'1" and above.

Yes a truth telling barefooted 5'11" guy is there or just about there! Failing that I think that the start of tall is no higher than 5'11.5".

Nik said on 5/May/17

I fully agree with you. If you are talking about men from all age groups then I think that 5'11" is the start of tall in the UK/USA, I could buy 5'11.5". Most men I think are between 5'5" and 5'11.5".
Bazza said on 5/May/17
@Christian - 6' - 6'1 is devalued a bit these days though with the amount of people in the 5'10 / 5'11 range claiming those heights. I think a truth telling 5'11 person is the start of tall.
Wrs567 said on 4/May/17
@Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8): That's fair, I can agree with that.

Give or take a centimeter or two, But yes I agree.

6'0'' is that start of ''actual tall'' to me.

5'11'' is very underestimated/underrated height in my opinion. It is certainly fairly tall.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 4/May/17
For me, anywhere from 170 to 182 is the average range. Below average would be 170-173, middle average would be 174-177, and above average would be 178-182. Any height outside of that range I would call it short or tall.
Kaneff 6'0.25 said on 3/May/17
Christian I agree. 5'11" is only the 70th percentile for UK/US young men and only 61st percentile for 20-39yo white men. It's not a tall height when you're getting edged out by practically every 3rd guy on the street. 5'11" CAN look tallish with bulky footwear or if there's a lot of old people or asians/hispanics but no more than that.
Nik said on 3/May/17
@Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8)

To be honest some people claim that 5'11" is the start of tall in the UK/USA and others like yourself think that it starts at where you said, I don't think there's one definite right or wrong answer though! For me I think that tall starts at between 5'11" and 5'11.5", exactly where I think is debatable, I am happy for people to disagree with me though. 5'11" is certainly more than a "high average" height in the UK/USA, it is strongly knocking on the door of being tall or is right at the bottom of the tall range.
Johan said on 3/May/17
A guy who is solid 5'11" so 181-182 cm is above average not upper average or whatever. Those kind of guys pull off looking tallish and regularly get guessed as 6'1". They are 2 inches taller than the average guy in US or UK so its a solid difference but not enough imo to be tall. Somewhere around 6'0.25-6'0.5" is where tall starts I believe as many in that range claim 6'2" and they get away with it!.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 3/May/17

I wouldn't call 5'11" in the US/UK as tall though. Legit tall starts from 6'0"-6'1" I think.
Wrs567 said on 2/May/17
Nik is right, 5'11'' is definitely more than just upper average!

Now if you are talking about somewhere like Holland/Denmark then yes

It could be more upper average
