@Thereel: no offense but you aren't and don't sound very intelligent. And to say he "lied" to a terminally I'll patient is beyond ignorant. Have you physically seen or measured Kobe? how do you know Kobe is an "easy" 6'5? A guy who measures 6'4.75 won't look any different than a guy who is 6'5. You should know that if you're the same height as he is

Oh so you want to get personal? this from the 2014 newbie who is CONSTANTLY posting on here and alot of the time with massive long winded essay comments AAAAAAARGH, its so frustrating when I want to come here and have to make mental effort to avoid the text boxes that have the name canson in them, so I know to avoid reading your comments I don't care if your estimates are occasionally accurate your a massive troll lying about all these b ball celebrities you have supposedly met the day you post evidence of even just one, i'll eat my hat, I bet your a real loser in real life, do you even have a wife? LOL like you say you did once?, btw I shan't read your response your a loser troll not worth any more of my time who's highlight of his day is probably getting another one of his comments posted on this site. GO AWAY CANSON & don't bother replying I won't reed it, because I have better things to do with my time than arguing with losers online. SO Good day Sir. Oh and one more thing Kobe Bryant had a extra marital affair with kids involved so he's clearly a as**le point blank period, regardless if he was lying to dying kids. Still at least he's not a loser like you

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.
Junior said on 20/Oct/17
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

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).

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
Editor Rob: 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.

He looks the same of Asensio (181) there, imo he is either 180 or 181. Solid 5'11.

@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.
Johnson said on 16/Aug/17
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

About Rob he does not deep below 173 before bed normally. And on medicals tests he is 173
Johnson said on 16/Aug/17
@Canson yes I am a mistery I would like to be measured by Rob.

Looks 5'10" here with six foot Sergio Ramos.
Canson said on 14/Aug/17
@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
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 7/Aug/17
@Slim 182 cm

No he's 5'8 1/8". On his profile page he doesn't mention anything about being dehydrated. It just says he's 5'8 1/8" at night and 5'8.75" first thing in the morning. And I remembed him saying once that his afternoon and night is bascially the same.
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").

Another interesting fact was when David gave his first press conference in Madrid he was barefoot.
He used to paint his feet nails and walk barefoot many times ....or just in flip flops. This guy has no problem with his height and I can't see a big dispute or controversy as with Brad Pitt who is hard to guess.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 2/Aug/17
@Slim 182 cm

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.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 1/Aug/17

I never said 181 is outrageous, it's just pretty unlikely. I think you would be easily 2cm taller than him.

@Hijopotamus, if you're a decent 182-183 guy and becks is around 2 cm shorter than you, that would make becks 180-181. @Christian, becks 181 isn't outrageous like Jackman 5'10, it's reasonable and scroll down far enough, rob pins becks within the 5'11 range, It's close.

Canson said on 29/Jul/17
@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
Slim 182 cm said on 29/Jul/17
@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.

5'10.75-5'11.25, the former is more likely btw, I think him and pitt might both be 179.8, weak 5'11s.

I agree with Appe. I am not alone then. 181
Slim 182 cm said on 29/Jul/17
Canson,Christia-, for starters, we can't even see their footwear in the Iverson photo, and second of all, David has a low eye level, hence why his eldest son who's max 5 cm shorter looks within a similar height range to David.
Canson said on 28/Jul/17
Same deal as Allen Iverson 5'10.5
Slim 182 cm said on 28/Jul/17
Compare him to john Travolta and Eddie redmayne. Very interesting. Christian, I agree there's a limit, but mine is 5'10.75-5'11.25. he is listed 183 on google/imdb.
There's nothing stopping becks from being measured 5'11.1 or .2 and being rounded down.

I don't get why Beckham gets 5'11.5" guesses on here. He was consistently listed 180cm during his career, and football/soccer organizations usually don't underlist anyone with the exception of maybe Rio Ferdinand (who was listed 189 but is 191) Beckham's 179-180 not 181-182.

David's no taller, if not a tad shorter than 5'11.25" measured Odell, but he's really like 5'11" since sports measurements take place early in the day. David is 5'11" at best, maybe even 5'10.5" as he looked similar to Iverson. No way he's 5'11.5"

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.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jun/17
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.

6'2 I'd say is still unremarkarble in a college campus.

@Canson

What type of shoes do you most often like to wear?
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.
shiva 181 cms said on 12/Jun/17
I think average height o college guys in all countries doesnt differ that much as the average height of the whole country as all are well nourished , the avg height of college guys is above 5'10 and under 6'0
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 11/Jun/17
That's what I was saying. With that being said, there will occasionally be somebody who is 6'7"+ come in, with them always getting comments about how tall they are. I even saw one who was AT LEAST 6'10" tonight.

@Celebheight 6' 1.5 If most young guys from where you live average 1.76, then most of them are not 6'-6' 1". LOL.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 9/Jun/17
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.
James B said on 31/May/17
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.
James B said on 30/May/17
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
@ Max

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?
James B said on 29/May/17
I would defo think if your 6ft4 you would feel very tall (in public) all the time.

Here in London 6 foot won't feel anywhere near as tall compared to say Rome or Madrid. I consider a 6 footer above average here.

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.
Nik said on 28/May/17
Ok. You are right!
James B said on 27/May/17

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 said on 26/May/17

@ 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.

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 - 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

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.

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.

@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

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 at...lol
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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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-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.

5'11 for a 'human being' is tall given that the average male (in the world) is 5'8 (173cm). That means if your a legit 5'11 you are taller than most men on the planet.

Don't forget that countries like the US and UK are taller on average compared to other nationalities which is 5'11 is more like on the upper end of average in these countries.

@James B Don't forget that people not only mention their height in shoes, they also mention their height including a big hair. A man with a military haircut is much easier to measure than a guy like Beckham, who always has a lot of hair on his head adding him 2 or 3 cm.

Hair adding 2 or 3cm to measured height is ridiculous. Even people with huge afros will probably only get a few mm advantage over bald people in measurements.

Honestly Rob, how tall do you reckon Becks is? Google and Wikipedia say 183. His Man Utd profile claims 5'11, and his book says 5'9. Too much inconsistency there. What's your estimate ?

he also had another book called soccer skills, he was more modest in that book, only gave himself a height of 5ft 9 Beckham listing himself as 5ft 9...



That's a joke?
Editor Rob: it's not a joke, he's listed 5ft 9 in the book as shown in the link.

Measured as exactly 180cm in Manchester United, so he is 5'10.75".

@Dont know what to claim. Kobe isn't a full 6'5". He said himself he's 6'4.75. Not to mention a 6'5-6'5.25 poster that was here met him and edged him out by 1/2". Kobe may even be 6'4 2/3 at night. But That adds up with Renaldo. I don't see him above 6'1" evening height
James B said on 19/Mar/17
In photos with prince William from 2015 looks more 5ft10 than 11 if you ask me

6'7 Magic Johnson has 6" on Ronaldo. 6'5 Kobe has approx. 3.5" on Ronaldo. Ronaldo has approx 3" on Beckham. Beckaham is 178-179cm.
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
@Thereel: no offense but you aren't and don't sound very intelligent. And to say he "lied" to a terminally I'll patient is beyond ignorant. Have you physically seen or measured Kobe? how do you know Kobe is an "easy" 6'5? A guy who measures 6'4.75 won't look any different than a guy who is 6'5. You should know that if you're the same height as he is. I can't really tell a difference to be honest between the two and I'm about 6'4 3/8. Unless I look very closely in the mirror. That's a diff of 3/8 inch vs 5/8". Actual barefoot height. Something shoes offset. If he measured 6'4.75 that's what he is. But you're making the "math" work by inflating him while S.J.H is correct. Thats how he looks. I've met Carmelo Anthony in person. He's nothing more than a strong 6'6" at best (his pre draft) at worst he's a solid 6'6" at his lowest. Kobe is a good 1.5" shorter than Melo as he also is against rob gronkowski not to mention a 6'5-6'5.25 poster (confirmed) met him and said he had him by a cm or 1/2". KROC. Described him as a weak 6'5". Either way you are now rob also has him listed as 6'4.75. Most people here below who have met Beckham say he's under 5'11 which is common because measurements are taken in the morning

Canson said on 7/Mar/17
I agree with SJH. He's a morning 5'11 and change out of bed which essentially makes him maybe a weak 5'11. He's similar with Allen Iverson in height 5'10.5-5/8 maybe but not more
trumpslave said on 6/Mar/17
Beckham height is 181 cm period just look at the pics with victor cruz so 181 cm period.

@Celeb heights said on 7/Feb/17

Lol. Therefore kobe bryant would be 6'7 and editor rob 5'10. Truth is beckham is 179cm in the morning and 178cm noon/evening
vaiski said on 2/Mar/17
If Victor Cruz is legit 5'11 and 5/8ths then that picture pretty much confirms Beckham is 5'11 on the nose or just a hair over. Cruz is wearing sneakers while Bevkham has dress shoes/boots on. That gives him a half inch advantage and the two look very similar side to side.
Johnblake said on 19/Feb/17
David Beckham is 5'10" or 5'10.5" at best. He's not 5'11. In team sports, outside of American football, one should deduct at least one inch from whatever the team has the player as being. Now, I am not using this as evidence for Beckham's height. I can just see it. Plus there's a photo of him a with a 6'1"(w/o shoes) Tony Parker. And Tony is easily 2.5 inches taller than the guy.
Johnson said on 19/Feb/17
I would request a page for Paul Scholes (around 171) and Ryan Giggs
Wrs567 said on 19/Feb/17
Rob, any idea on Ryan Giggs height?

I always wondered his height, I think he looks a tad shorter than David

5'10.75'' a good guess?
Editor Rob: yes, a weak 5ft 11 may well be Ryan's height.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 16/Feb/17
David Beckham has a lengthy torso for his height, so he often appears shorter because of that. He's the opposite of Cristiano Ronaldo who has most of his height in his legs.

181.5 in morning. 180.5 at bed.

He ain't a horrible man. He is however, the smallest man in the world, and I am definitely not talking about height ;-)
Beckham is a phony. Sad.
James B said on 9/Feb/17
Yeah rob sorry I will try and stick to height more
James B said on 8/Feb/17
Rob do you think Beckham is a horrible man?
Editor Rob: James, this is about his height, but I understand he has been in the news lately.

I think it's a useful exercise to remember that anything we type may well see the light of day, so best thinking twice before hitting submit on anything. We all have said stuff that we probably regret or said in the heat of the moment.

The anonymous feeling people have on the web can turn even the most seemingly normal bloke into an abusive troll online.

David beckham is 6ft, Victor cruz is also 6ft as Wikipedia have him at that

I know kobe claims 6'4 3/4" but who really gives a sh**, so we now give men who cheat on there wife's the benefit of the doubt when it comes to there honesty?, I don't like how Kobe lied to that terminally ill child back in 2009 about his height

Only if kobe was 6'6 then beckham can be 181cm

David is 5ft11 exactly. I have never read anything different until this afternoon!
For some reason, I couldn't get through to this website so I tried to access it in different ways, but to no avail. I ended up checking out a couple of other height sites, and they weren't a patch on this one! They didn't captivate my interest for very long at all!
One of them said that David is 6ft! I thought, "I'm going to take a nap!"
So I did!
When I woke up, I found this site again! It really is beyond comparison and I never thought I would say this but it offers a 'service' to the enquiring mind!
HonestSlovene said on 17/Jan/17
@James B I'm between you 2 (closer to Beckham's height at 5'10" range) and wear a UK shoe size 9 (US 9.5), which is about 43-44 EU. Everyone is different, but taller people tend to have bigger sizes (though Beckham has never looked as a fella who wears a large shoe size).

I am 4 inches shorter than Beckham and take a size 10 UK
Johno said on 14/Jan/17
Let me cut to the chase, just look at his hand size, no need to assess via shoe size.

@Arch Stanton please put the source. In ebay with 10 US size you can see his boots

No he doesn't. I've seen Beckham say he takes a size 8.5 UK.

Beckham uses 11 US 10.5 UK 45.3 Europe. There were links on ebay. I don't think in shoes is less than 44.5 European
Craig said on 10/Jan/17
Beckham is 5 feet 10 & a half; judging by picture I've seen with him & OJ Beckham Jnr. It's stated that OJ is 5"11 & he as about half an inch to an inch on him!!! Just because he is so famous he gets labelled as 6 feet!! No chance!!

Lampard is NOT an inch taller than Gerrard.

Steven Gerrard has one of the worst postures I've seen. This is why he can looks shorter than he actually is.

Lampard and Gerrard are both decent 6'0'' guys.

Here you can see Steven Gerrard can look taller than Frank when he is not slouching

hr said on 12/Dec/16
is Lampard really an inch taller then Gerrard?I always pegged Gerrard to be 5'11 or 5'11 and a half at top. his height seems somewhat tall but he seems trumped when he's next to some whose 6'2.

i recall in his autobiography lists himself as among taller members of the English squad at the 06 WC.

and I remember reading in the LFC store he was listed on a poster as 188cm

btw how tall is Jamie Carragher?

Rob, for you who would be taller today between Beckham and Pitt ?
For the average guess Beckham by 0.5 in!!
I believe that they would be closer, like 0.25 inc difference or less
Editor Rob: for me, there's nothing really between those guys, at most 1/4 if measured.
mercury said on 30/Nov/16
I think this listing is incorrect Rob for David beckham just look at his pics with justin timberlake ronaldo nazario and iker casillas they are about the same height so david beckham is 181 or 182 cm
MS said on 26/Nov/16
180 cm seems accurate now. Though i believe that his peak height was 182 cm.
sa344 said on 17/Nov/16
Rob, do you see an inch between David and Frank?

I can't really tell
Editor Rob: yes, I think from that photsession there was enough to see Frank looked about an inch taller.

I don't know if it makes a case that Andy Murray is no more than 6'2" (possibly a tad under even as there isn't three full inches between them), or if it makes a case that David Beckham is due for an upgrade.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Nov/16
186cm seems reasonable for Terry. Doesn't look under 6ft1




Rob, could you add both him and Lampard?
Editor Rob: I am still thinking on those guys. Ideally it wouldn't matter, but I sometimes have to watch the amount of pages and the impact...hence why it's a few a day.
miko said on 7/Nov/16
186cm for Terry IMO.

Solid 6'1.

I would say at least 6ft1. He's taller than Lampard who is a strong 6ft.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/16
Rob, I asked this before but didn't get a reply...how tall do you think John Terry really is?




He's been listed from 6ft up to 6ft2 and honestly he can look all over that range.
Editor Rob: somewhere in 6ft 1 range might be more likely than 6ft 2 or 6ft
spainmen191cm said on 31/Oct/16
Rob, 10st 13lb in kg is not 75, is 69.4 to be precise. Maybe you want to correct ;)

5'10.75", bad posture 5'10.5.
Jay 184cm said on 19/Oct/16
Beckham has always looked a solid 5'11" - in fact, his athletic frame has often given off the impression he might be slightly taller than that, 181cm maybe. But generally photos with guys like Ronaldo or Ramos show him to be a solid 5'11". I cannot see him being under 180cm.
For his generation, he always looked a relatively good height for a footballer, especially compared to his Class of '92 contemporaries. For the current generation, 6'0" - 6'2" is very common. Nevertheless, Beckham has good proportions and always looks good style-wise.

Wallace said on 5/Sep/16
Met him when he was in LA. I'm five eleven and He's about the same height maybe half inch shorter so listing him is fair. He's not less than five ten and half
Canson said on 14/Aug/16
In this pic he has his head tilted downward with Kobe, but I could see roughly a 15-16cm diff (if both straightened up and we take from Beckhams scalp) with a guy who was measured near the 195 mark 194.945. One thing with guys like Beckham Pique Blake Griffin etc with thick hair, it can skew the measurement even if it's just 1cm. It balances when you look at Pique next to a true measurement like Ibrahimovic who was measured at 194-194.5 and is An accurate listing by Rob. Same with Griffin who got a morning measurement but looks (minus his hair) more like 202cm next to Deandre Jordan 207.65cm, about a 5-6cm difference, and with Carmelo Anthony who is accurately 198.8cm, a 3-4cm difference if hair were equal.

With Ronaldo he is in the 5'10-range; Ronaldo's height is probably one of the most accurate there. He was twice at 6'1 in shallow footwear.
