@Olney28: I don’t get what you’re saying because it makes no sense. This site is about barefoot heights. Nobody cares what your shoes make you. I could wear a pair of steeled toed boots with orthotics in them but does that mean that I’m 6’6+? No I’m 6’4”

I don't see what's so difficult to understand. As I laid out perceived and true height. Go outside and ask someone how tall they are. It's a fact not opinion or belief that they'll tell you their barefoot (true height) or perceived (in shoes) height. There's a difference between someone who says they're 6' in shoes as apposed to saying 6'2 in shoes when said person is 5'11 barefoot. When you meet/see someone out in public they tend to have footwear on right?? That's all I'm saying

@ Christian 6'5 3/8"

Well I'm referring to actual barefoot height. Has nothing to do with how he appears in public.

There is only one height for a human and that’s a barefoot height. Of course it varies dependent on the time of day.

@Olney28: I don’t understand what you you’re saying to Christian. He’s right in that if he measured 6’2.25 he can’t be 6’3”. Obviously on this site we are talking about a barefoot height and not a shoe height/how you look in public which is not a legitimate measurement by the way being shoes are not part of the human body

@Christian 6'5 3/8"
He can be 6'3". There are two types of height people claim. Perceived (how you appear in public) and true (barefoot)

@Brad: you mean 85?

He measured 6'2.25" so he can't be 6'3".

6'3 220 in his hay day. Barefoot height is typically an inch to an inch and a half less than in shoes. Which people will be wearing when you meet them.

I met Jim 30 years ago, he's freakin BIG on top of the height. 230 easy in '65.

I thought Eric could be 6-1, because Marcus Allen looks taller a lot.
Canson said on 1/Sep/18
Salley looks closer to 6’10 than 6’9”. He has 4” on Rodman or very close to 4”. I’d put Rodman at 6’6” however and maybe 6’6.25 peak

Jim Brown was 6’2” & 230-232 lbs!...a total freak of nature for his era!

John Elway mentioned in that blurb, who I've seen listed in stats at 6'2 1/2
viper said on 31/Aug/18
Rob needs to add Chris Collinsworth. Listed at 6-5 but was measured at 6-3.

@RP He probably measure it in the morning and 6'9.25" at his best before bed. But i still sees him strong 6'9 like Kevin Durant.
Bradley said on 30/Aug/18
Any other H.O.F. running backs at over 6-2? I never gave much thought on his height back in the day...his height surprised me!
RP said on 30/Aug/18
John Sally Peak:
Barefoot: 6’9-3/4”
With Sneakers: 6’10-7/8” to 6’11”
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Aug/18
6'1 7/8 is also not a surprise he get measure before bed. Brett Favre also a candidate 6'1 7/8 at his low.
viper said on 29/Aug/18
I've always thought Salley was 6-9
Canson said on 28/Aug/18
6’2 flat at his lowest peak

Would John salley be about 6ft 9 Rob?
Editor Rob
I'm not that sure on John
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/Aug/18
John Salley 6'11 claimed was biggest joke here. Shave off the cap on Dickerson head then John look at most 7" top on Dickerson consider that John Salley had a 5.1" eye level. 6'9 max for John Salley is generous enough and giving Eric Dickerson 6'2 since he was measured in the morning for 6'2 1/4.
