@ak, as Rob said, that's a fair assessment of yourself. I wake at 5'10.5, and claim 5'10.

@Rob Paul, hey Rob, how tall do I look here? Click Here

Ben says I look 6'0, I thought I looked 5'11 range.
Editor Rob: some low angles can make people give a taller impression. If you wore a slim pair of trousers/jeans and retook the photo you might seem over six foot!
Canson said on 18/Sep/17
@G5'11: well said! I ran into someone I met maybe last year that is 6'4.5ish in shoes and claims 6'5 this weekend. To this day just like last time he claimed 6'5". I didn't speak with him this time but someone saw us next to each other and a girl he was with asked me what I was and said 6'4" (was prob 6'4.25 since I was in my feet and went to the gym). I had on casual shoes prob around 3/4" and still edged him like last time when he was in sneaks. She immediately proceeded to say he was this and I look a tad taller (I have better posture and body proportions too). others standing there said he is 6'4. Just like my 6'3 friend was there at the bar last time he called him on it this time my 6'5 and change friend in flats edged him by 1.5 when he walked past and the girl said the same to him then realized this guy was claiming his shoes. That's an already tall guy being insecure with his height (last time said I can't believe you all told me I'm 6'4 and proceeds to argue about why he measures in shoes) then wanting to be taller.
Canson said on 18/Sep/17
@Jason: 6'3.5 is fine as is what you claim. People that are 6'2.5 claiming 6'4" so at least you are there being honest at 6'3.5 or near it. You will realize once you get older that you're height at that point is not that important. I have you by near an inch 4-6mm so below 6'4.5. I usually say I'm 6'4" because I don't feel like I really need to be any taller when I'm not playing pro ball etc. it's no different than someone claiming a morning height or shoes since I'm claiming my lowest and rounding down
Canson said on 18/Sep/17
@Anonymous: if you're that height 6'6 and change works. You really grew almost 5/8" at 21? You may make it to 2m or even a legit 6'7"

Rob i know its natural but doctor back in 2011 noticed my lower spine was rounded not in natural way though.
5'10 said on 18/Sep/17
I wake up 180cm and go bed 178.4cm barefoot. I feel tall in UK people who say they are 6'0 are shorter than me and my 6'1 friend guessed me at 5'11. In real life 5'9.80 and over barefeet is tall, people just lie about their height.

"As far as I'm concerned, anything under 6'2" is small and guys under 6' are just sub-human. Those who lift are just overcompensating but that's pointless cuz girls always pick the taller guy."

mmh that's interesting, so according to you, the vast majority of human in the world are "sub-human"? What an idiotic statement. You sir have some serious issues and seem overly fixated on height. You even feel compelled to advertise your 6'5 3/8" stature in your handle. I feel sorry for you and only hope that you gain some maturity and learn to see past height alone.

Congratulations for being 6'5 3/8" but believe me, you'd be a much bigger man if you only showed a little respect to others. Right now, you either sound like a complete, debilitic moron or a forum troll. and I hope for your soul it's the latter...
tree said on 18/Sep/17
Rob if a 179cm person reaches till the ears of a guy how tall is him?
Editor Rob: an ear is like 2 inches or so, if they were at the top of the ear of the taller man, then this tall fella could be over 6ft 2, near 6ft 3.
Greg said on 18/Sep/17
@Pazuzu first of all, "Bad genes"? I ended up a weak 5'11, which I have no issue being with. Sure it would be nice to be taller, but at least I'm not shorter. Besides I wouldn't really want to be at a standout height. Second of all, I said that my poor diet and lack of sleep while I was still growing probably stunted me an inch or so, didn't think I was going to end up 6'4, but I could have ended up a flat 6 foot had I slept more there where days where I was doing to high school freshman/ sophomore year and I had only slept an hour or two that's definetly not healthy and would effect a teens growth in most cases plus if I actually ate better as a kid. It's not an excuse, it's a logical fact get it through your head boi.
Dennis said on 18/Sep/17
For those of you who think '6 foot' is 'tall', measure yourself with a tape then look at the tape 5cm below your height and tell me whether or not you feel tall? That's the difference between 6ft and average 5'10, not much at all.

'Tall' to me is significantly and obviously above average. I'd say 6'3 is the start of 'tall'. What do you guys think?
tree said on 18/Sep/17
Rob did you ever smoked?If you did it was just one pack of cigarettes or did you smoke for months,years?
Editor Rob: in teens a few times, but since 16 never touched a cigarette again.

I remember more having to go out to the Ice Cream Van or local shops to buy '10 Silk Cut', my Mother's fag of choice...was age 9-10 at the time and never once did any of the Van men or shops bother, they sold ciggies to kids quite happily!
jake said on 18/Sep/17
hey rob im 16 and 6 months old,and i would like to know where i am with my growth, i am currently 176(5,9.5) and reach 177-8(morn) whilst going down to as low as 174.5 at night(usually measured at 12am).I dont remember hitting a growth spurt but i do remember that this time 3 years ago i was 158 and i grew steadily throughout those 3 years.At the age of 15 i was around the 170-171 mark and i haven't noticed much growth since then.My father was 5,11 in his peak, however, has now gone down to 5,10 and my mother was 5,8.5 at her peak and she is now around 171(5,7.5).The thing with my family is that the genes are so unpredictable, my mother's immediate sister is 4,11 but ironically her sons range from 5,7 to 6,3(the father being 5,11).Im making this because i've noticed that my growth has recently slowed and my dream is to reach 6,1 which is about 4 inches away at most.Through the information, i've given you what height range do you expect me to be and do you think i would be able to reach 6,1 by the age of 19-20.(note:My 2 fully grown sisters are 5,5 and 5,7 respectively)
DruceLee said on 18/Sep/17
My navel height is 111, 112cm...is this above average for 179cm?
Jack The Smackhead said on 18/Sep/17
@Bobby: I think the reason being as to why your height is discussed so controversially, is because it is a very common height. I wake up at about 5'11.5/6, and drop down to 5'10.75 every night, so i'm basically 1 inch taller than you, and I would never dare say I am a 'strong 5'10'. Yeah I may be a weak 5'11, but I agree with your logic: as long as I am 5'11 most of the day (in which in the day is what 99% of people will see me as) I'm not going to claim a strong 5'10, as only people like my family and my girlfriend would see my as that. Besides, I'm 100% sure they would not notice, nor care!

I wouldn't worry what people say or think, and as long as you genuinely are the height you say you are, then focus on more important things ;) Just because someone's bones happen to be a bit longer than yours, doesn't make them any more of a man than you are fella.
Jack The Smackhead said on 18/Sep/17
@Tonyx @G'11: Remember I'm 5'11 too and have size 8 (US 9) feet! Although my reach is around a strong 6' which is normal I think.
Jack The Smackhead said on 18/Sep/17
@Christian-6'5 3/8: Oh, I see, Truth was the original person who said that. Christian, being a 6'5 guy yourself, what are your views on his ridiculous statement?
Canson said on 17/Sep/17
some people here make some serious excuses just to make themselves taller. Adding shoes or saying you're almost this height when you're 1.5 or 2.5" when you're not or claiming a morning height doesn't change the net result of what you really are. I don't get what I'd do good about having to reach 6'0" or 6'2 etc doesn't make you any better of a person

we 5'9ers here get treated very poorly on celebheights. our height is depicted as way shorter than it is . I dont know if it is because of the number (single digit instead of 5'10) or something but it is hurtful :(

I think we are at least weak average if not more . please have some more respect and realistic outlook . thank you

I guess nobody cares for us or how we feel ....
JEFFERS said on 17/Sep/17
Jason, If you're lowest is 191.5 that's equivalent to 6'3.39" so to claim only 6'3" is downgrading yourself. Your high of 193.8 is actually 6'4.29". I think a lot of people would claim 6,3.75"
JEFFERS said on 17/Sep/17
Rob/any user, 8am out of bed height is 176.5cm. 11.30pm down to 174.9cm. Can I class myself as a typical 5ft 9 guy. If you were me what would you view your true height as?
Editor Rob: I think saying 5ft 9 for yourself is very fair!
Sally said on 17/Sep/17
@ Ben

I am so sorry about the tragic loss of your father. I hope you and your mother can console each other through this difficult time. You mentioned in your post "It's also time for me to come out." I hope you don't feel as if there is anything wrong with being a Foster child. There are many types of families...The one thing every family has in common is the love and support they give each other. Good luck!
Bobby said on 17/Sep/17
@Panzuzu, 5'10 is 50 percentile, based on who? I'm below average based on what? I was frequently the tallest one in Greece, and even Canada am one of the tallest guys on the university campus. Walking around at 5'10 midday, I feel anything but short, I feel tall.

Canson said on 17/Sep/17
Slim I have to disagree with you. sometimes depending on footwear you can mistake a 5'10" guy for 5'11-6'0 esp if they are a strong 5'10 and where maybe they have a lot of footwear putting them at or even over 6'0" at night. 5'10" is above average still. 5'8/5'9 or 5'9 maybe is the average.
Ben said on 17/Sep/17
@Johan I would claim "A little above 6'3" " if I was your height or 6'3.5". I'm assuming you're 19 oe 20. If you're lucky you might squeeze out another inch in your 20's but it all depends on how much your parents and other family members grew.

Andres said on 17/Sep/17
@Bobby So did u measure flat 5'9 at midday when u were 18? Cause you have said many times that u were mismeasured and thought u were 6ft at 18???
Canson said on 16/Sep/17
@Jason: nope. Although I wasn't as aware of height differences until i came to this site a few years ago but don't believe I grew after about 18 maybe. I'm mid 30s now and essentially same height. Ive measured about 6'4.5 for basketball in college (was told 6'4.75 once but could've been error and a couple of those were at a 6am practice and in my physicals outside of that were always around 6'4 3/8 or 1/2). As of today I'm a little shy of 194cm on a normal night

As far as growing I wouldn't necessarily rule it out but at the same time you may get to weak 6'4 (6'3.5-.75) at your lowest or even 6'4". Now Insomniak, another poster, gained about an inch or over an inch at 18 to hit 6'6" but that is not common for everyone and wouldn't necessarily bank on it happeniing. But I think if you get inside of the 192.5-193 range you'll be straight. I'd actually classify that as my ideal height as it keeps under 6'5" in a regular shoe.That's a legit 6'4". My absolute low that I've hit has been 193.2 on a night when I was on my feet but typically a low is 193.7-194 at night. Be that as it may I still claim 6'4" so if you were 192.5-193 and I stood next to you equal footwear ground etc we would only be maybe tops 1/2" different. But I will also say that 6'3 range is also a very very good height.

@Slim I believe I did actually, only by a little bit. I definetly could have reached 6 foot, not complaining or saying I'm short obviously I'm above average and I've been called tall before, but in all realness I wouldn't mind 1-2 inches and yeah my 6'3 friend was the same lol.
?lvaro said on 16/Sep/17
Did anyone here grew anything after 18?
G 5'11 said on 16/Sep/17
@Jason Bruh you're fine at 6'3, I never understood guys who are 6 feet or taller wanting to be taller. I would gladly take another inch, or two. a comfortable 6 foot would be amazing, let alone 6'1. I would even taker a stronger 5 ft 11. Most guys are finished growing by 18, only a select few will gain anything. I doubt you will, no offense. But you are already at a great height..
HonestSlovene said on 16/Sep/17
@Manlet You are slightly short but with that user name I thought you were somewhere between 5'4" and 5'8" seriously. I'm like 180 cm morning and I feel strong average. 179 cm in the morning is probably dead on average in white countries.
Greek said on 16/Sep/17
Rob can measuring height while lying down knock off an inch?
Editor Rob: it shouldn't make much difference. I did a video a few years ago showing Standing versus lying down measurements.
Tonyx said on 16/Sep/17
Bobby, thank you for your answer. So you think the reach should be, in general, 4in(10.16cm) longer then the height. What about the waist, i mean not just the fat around it but the bone structure itself. How wide do you think the waist should be so as to look good/aesthetically pleasing? What about hips? Height, reach, broad shoulders and wide hips all help you hit harder but you can't grow any of it. Punchers are born not made. But long arms and wide shoulders look good, while wide hips, even if with a lot of muscle mass and less body fat still look kinda weird on a man.
Matt179 said on 16/Sep/17
@blazer

I never get under 5foot10. I measured myself at 11 oclock pm after a full day of work+ Gym(heavy squatting) and it was like 5foot10.10 almost 5foot10 flat.

But miday im sure im 5foot10.50(179cm). Also i really dont give a **** about my height too much since im very muscular. I dont look like a skinny guy standing next to 6foot1 guy, Sometime im even more built than lanky 6foot1+ Guy.

If i was very skinny at my height i would freak out, but im not.

The nike sneakers that i wear give 1.4 inches of height. So im about 5foot11.90 inches with them. When people ask my height i just say 5foot11. Nobody ever question that. So i must look like a 5foot11 Barefeet guy when i wear those nike sneaker. This is when i dont wear The 1 inch shoe lift foam in them.

These days i dont wear the foam lift, Just the 1.4 sneakers, So im 5foot11.90 with them.Keep in mind here in Canada the average height is 5foot9. So im almost 2 inch taller than those guys 5foot9. Im totally confortable when i wear these, when i wear Flat Chucks taylor i feel just above average, when i wear nike 1.4 sneaker i feel taller.

Totally confident when i wear those since im very much muscular than 5foot9 and sometime im more build than 6foot1 guys. So i dont really mind at all being 179cm barefeet.

Hey Rob, if I'm 5'11.5 in the morning, is it okay to say I'm 5'11 when someone asks?

You did say he was in the 5’11-11.5” range and Last year or so, i use to think he was a 5’11” guy until now that I’ve seen more pics of him with other celebs,
I’m fairly convinced that he could b 5’11.5” or pushing 11.75”/6'. He can look closer to 6ft at times.

What’s your thought on this Rob?
G 5'11 said on 15/Sep/17
@Tonyx well reaches vary, at a weak 5'11, mines around 6'2 which is quite big. But I would say,
Average shoe size for a 5ft 10 guy= 9-11 is common
Average shoe size for a 5 ft 11 guy 10-11 is common
Average shoe size for a 6 foot guy= 11-12 is common
but obviously it varies: For instance, mines 10.5 US I know my math tutor who is somewhere in the 5'11 range is 10.5 as well. But I have a weak 5'9 friend who's a size 12 lmao.

It was Truth who made the original comment, and Arch just later quoted it. Here's what Truth said:

Truth said on 4/Sep/17
Thomas is right though. In the end game, the one factor that is a game-changer is height. Some of you think a 6'1" dude who packs a lot of muscles can strike fear into men's hearts and make ladies swoon but that just shows how deluded you are.

I'm 6'4" 240 pounds @ 7.5% bodyfat. I can walk into any room and have any lady I want on the spot without saying a word. Now that's something all the money in the world will never buy you.

I've got a few friends around the same height and in top shape and it's the exact same deal for them. We just won the lottery when it comes to genetics. Put in the work in the gym and we're masters of the world.

As far as I'm concerned, anything under 6'2" is small and guys under 6' are just sub-human. Those who lift are just overcompensating but that's pointless cuz girls always pick the taller guy.

Hate to break your bubbles guys but that's the plain Truth :-)

@Jason 6'3, there wouldn't be a point of you said " almost 6'4" referring to your morning height as you're tall enough already.
@Jackthesmackhead yeah I noticed, well that means you would have to target 80% of the General heights forum lmao.
@Blazer I feel you, most guys would go with those stats would say 5'11 but I'll give you kudos for using your lowest even though you don't even have to.
@Fer I gotta say, you ended up well for having pretty short parents, unfortunately you might not grow more just like that. However, if you want try doing various stretching exercises/yoga and take glucosamine phosphate, do some research you might be about to gain a small fraction, but you have to be really doing the stretches and you can't stop. Some people who have taken it for joint pin reported measuring slightly taller, you won't gain inches but it's still worth a shot.

Canson, at 6', 1 in 4 guys edge you out if the average is 5'10" which it probably is now, saying it's 5'8" or 5'9" is just absurd to say it mildly. Yes it's great to stand at, but I've been called skinny and "as thin as paper" and while yes I do gain respect from it and so, I think 190 might be a better height.
pazuzu said on 15/Sep/17
@Bobby

No disrespect or whatever, but you have to be brain damaged to ever think you were 6'2 at not even 5'10 flat. Even if that came from a doctor's mismeasurement. That's the equivalent of being told you are monkey, and start hanging upside down from trees eating bananas.

There's absolutely no scientific evidence that suggests weight lifting can stunt growth. Unless you were holding a bar over your heads for 24 hours a day. This is nonsense.

It should actually stimulate growth hormone production, not stop it. Again, no disrespect Bobby and Greg, but maybe you stop finding excuses for failing to reach your predicted height. It's probably that you just got bad genes on the height department, unless you were criminally malnourished as children.


I also saw that Mr Bobby claimed that 5'10 is above average. 178-179 cm for 20 year olds is at the 50(%) percentile today . A guy who is 176.5-177 cm (5'9.5-5'9.75) at his extreme low like Mr Bobby, would be at about the 40(%) percentile amongst 20-30 year olds, so a little below average height for his age.

Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 15/Sep/17
@Tree Ray Ramona was technically measured on Everybody Loves Raymond. However, the measurement was at 5'11 3/4" (which is obviously WAY TOO low for him). A lot of people thought that he was 6'3" before then, which I was questioning. What they should have is a show where they legitimately have celebrities volunteer to get measured, and then they use a lot of photos (considering the footwear/lifts for some of them) to do a pre-measurement estimate. Some who would NEVER volunteer to do it:

1. Tom Cruise-Although I do think that he could measure up taller than people think. He might try to sneak in earlier in the day, however.
2. Vin Diesel-While I do think think that he's taller than most people think that he is, he's obviously not 6'1" like he claims to be.
3. Arnold Schwarzennegger-I would love to see what everybody's reaction would be on here if he somehow measured up at over 6'0 on this show today. I bet that people would pull the "he's lifts that you can wear bearfoot" card. I'm not saying that he would measure up that tall, however, but the page would be flooded for months.
4. Sylvester Stallone-Do I really need to explain why?
5. Justin Bieber-He would probably try to get somebody to drive him to the show 10-15 minutes out of bed, and he would probably rush in telling the person to measure him right away.
6. Robert Downey Jr.
7. Justin Timberlake
8. Chris Pine-Mainly because of the fact that he actually does seem to be a bit insecure about being a tall guy.
9. Ryan Reynolds-Same as up above.

Some who would do it:

1. Henry Cavill-He seems to have no problem with his height whatsoever, and is able to own being tall as much as he could own being short.
2. Daniel Craig-He's aware of the fact that he's not 6'0"+ (the shortest James Bond), yet he isn't insecure over it in the slightest.
3. Tom Hardy
4. Jamie Foxx
5. John Cena
6. Brad Pitt-He is 5'11" and claims it.
7. Tom Hiddleston-He really doesn't seem to care too much about his height. If he were paid to do this, then he definitely would do it.
8. Chris Hemsworth-Same as up above.
9. Vince Vaughn-He's definitely not height conscious like some actors are, even if he typically does have impeccable posture.
10. Snoop Dogg
11. Nicolas Cage
12. Morgan Freeman

I would pay some big money to watch this show, so they should jump on it before some of these celebrities lose any height.

@Canson, I said they would be around 6'1 with 2 inch lifts and wearing 1.5 inch shoes. Yes, I would can Bobby and Matt179 basic 5'10 people. Bobby maybe even a 5'9.5 if he only wakes at 5'10.25.
Bobby said on 14/Sep/17
@Fer, you and I have the same stats, more or less, I also measure 5'10.5 in the morning (with optimal sleeping conditions) and will measure a flat 5'10 at my low, if the conditions are not optimal, I generally will sometimes measure 178.7cm, but will usually measure 179.1cm. You're younger than I am, and when I was 18, I measured a flat 5'9 midday, I remember it was a 5pm measurement. But I was still growing even after that period, and managed to squeeze out an extra inch. I think you have a good chance to reach 5'11, or if not, 5'10.5. Either way, you've already done very well, considering your parents height.

Editor Rob: it certainly has a potential, especially if water-fasting is followed too!
Bobby said on 14/Sep/17
@Canson, if I sleep on firm mattresses that don't cause my back to sink in, in other words, optimal sleeping conditions, then I will always measure 5'10.5 in the mornings, with a low end of 5'10.25, so on average, my lows will be around 5'9.75 to 5'10, generally midday, I am a flat 5'10, or damn well near it, by like 1/8th of an inch.

@Bego, bodybuilding may affect your spine at any age if you raise stupendous amounts of weight with improper form. That's the only reason why people experience injuries in bodybuilding.

Rob, how tall do I look by sitting here?

Editor Rob: I couldn't really say much from the photo.

I will say though, leg length to spine ratios can certainly give people different perceptions when sitting. Add in people who slouch/curve spines and you are sometimes surprised when a person stands up!

G511, I don't think you stunted yourself, I think you need to clear your mind and stop worrying about being below 6', you're still above average/tallish and a great height.
And if you're lucky you may squeeze a quarter inch. I know a guy who got 6 hrs sleep often and smoked, he's a strong 6'2", I'm not saying to be unhealthy, but it's unlikely that a guy living in a develeped country is stunted.
blazer said on 13/Sep/17
@matt179, if you wake up at 5'10.75 then your at least 5'10 at night. A typical 5'10 flat person. Adding an inch and a half between tall shoes and lifts make you appear a typical 5'11.5 person. But at the end of the day when you take off your shoes and lifts your 5'10. I wake up 5'11 and I'm just a little over 5'10 at the end of the day and I claim 5'10. I don't claim my morning height because at the end of the day it's gone. What is your night time height? If your only losing .25 then you must work laying down or in bed. You probably drop under 5'10 at times if you only wake at 5'10.75
Jason said on 13/Sep/17
So I'm 193.8 right out of bed and 191.5 at my lowest. I personally view myself as a very strong 6'3, what height should I claim?

@Greg I was lifting weights since i was 16. I dont know how tall i was back then, im assuming 2-3 cm's shorter than now. But i've read how bodybuilding doesnt affect height and its a myth. But i dont know what to believe, during your grownth spine shall be free to reach its full potential so exercising (not bodybuilding) should be included, since lifting weights has affect on spine and you are doing compound exercises.

Rob Why they never measure famous people on tv shows?Don't ask them before the show starts cuz they will refuse, make it a surprise in front of the audience and if they refuse it is clear they are much shorter.I would like to see Bieber who claims 5ft9-5ft10 measured without shoes.
I would ask Bieber how tall are you?
Bieber 5ft9-5ft10
Me:Well many people say you are 5ft6-5ft7 let's prove them wrong, here we have a nice stadiometer...:)

Rob how could Bieber or any other star refuse it?If they do it is clear they lie, if they will be measured it will PROVE they lied.
If they say the stadiometer is not put right together use a tape measure its good for a rough measurement.
Editor Rob: in Japan and Korea, they have sometimes done measurements on shows.

It's very rare to have anything like it in America, though there was the radio show who did get some heights of lesser known Singers, but most measurements are roughly done, holding a tape measure.

Man, give the audience a button with 5 guesses or something - make it interactive, then measure the celeb You could have a bit of fun with it...heck, get 'Big G' to pop his head in the door saying 'still Five Eight!'

I think I grew like half an inch last year (but I'm not sure). So, can I reach 5'11'' in the evening? Or at least 5'10.5''?

@Blazer: as for Matt179 that's not putting him at almost 6'1". He's not but 5'10 at his lowest and 5'10.75 out of bed. That's a legit 5'10 and 6'0" in a 2" shoe no higher
Canson said on 12/Sep/17
@Jack the Smackhead: being a strong 6'4" I could say I didn't get every woman I wanted growing up and was told I was too tall before. Now I feel I did well in my honest opinion because I took care of myself over the years and appearance etc. And now I'm with the one I wanted I will say as we've been together forever it feels.

But i for sure have also been told I was too tall before. Not often at all but even if it happened 4 or 5 times that's still an occurrence. Now yes taller guys sometimes have an advantage sometimes but same time there is more to getting women than just your height. Your overall appearance carries more weight honestly and how you carry yourself body type etc. you could be 6'2" and a model and be a jerk or a pro athlete and smell or not take care of yourself outside of your trade.
Canson said on 12/Sep/17
@Slim, Mark, Celebheights 6'1.5: the biggest variable is the truth. Now many people here are younger teens and early 20s and still growing so it's reasonable that you would expect changes to occur albeit little for most people. Then you have some where they are done growing where it is consistent. but when shoes come into play or egregious claims or saying they feel short or wishing taller and growing then some questioning could be warranted. Now for Bobby I wouldn't go as far as that necessarily that he is for sure lying but I would also have stayed away from comments about claiming height in shoes or almost 6'0" at the same time esp when people have already given him grief over 5'10. I actually see his 5'10 claim as ok if 5'9.75 is his lowest. Now I may state to the fraction if I know what I know now and we're his height but I think a lot of that for me is because I claimed to the 1/2" for so long myself (don't really know as often) I just round down since I'm between 1/4-3/8 at night
Canson said on 12/Sep/17
@Blazer: it's more about what he ends the day at tho as opposed to waking up some days at 5'10.25. If he is 5'9.75 truthfully at bedtime then he can get away with 5'10. I would call myself 5'10 or state out my true height if I were that height.
the Slav said on 12/Sep/17
I shrink a lot during the day lol.
Wake up at 185 and then go to bed at 182.8 on a good day. My extreme low can be as low as 182.3
Canson said on 12/Sep/17
@Celebheights 6'1.5: I agree Mark is honest but it's more based off his own claim for himself. His estimates aren't necessarily a basis of whether or not he is honest. There are people here who may over or underestimate and be honest on their own height. Instead they use Rob's listings here and end up estimating based on that. He sometimes bases his off robs listings too like most people here do. I have done the same in some cases as well. But Not all of the listed heights here are actually correct. I trust more the ones where rob has met someone. There are many tho to rob's credit that he has not met and he has made a spot on estimate as well so we are all human.

@Bobby exactly, and I know it really stunted my growth because when a teen is still growing say from the ages of 14-15 and he isn't getting enough sleep, and his diet is messed up. I mean don't get me wrong I'm glad I ended up a weak 5'11, basically similar height as my Dad who I believe during his peak was somewhere in 5'10-5'11 range. Also he told me one of my great uncle was a legit 6'6, which is crazy because back then that would be considered extremely tall. Also i could have ended up 5'5 or even 5'6. Funny thing about that is recently this girl claimed I was a midget and was way shorter then her at 5'7.. when my eye level is like 5'6, plus when I met her in person I easily had several inches on her. so that wouldn't make sense unless I was one of These 👽. But then again she is just stupid in general.

Hi rob, I've seen some of your videos on you tube, was wondering if you've ever tried out elevator insoles? If so what insoles did you use and how much did it increase your height by?

I've seen 5-9cm ones, but realistically how much do you reckon 9cm elevator insoles they will add to your height?
Editor Rob: I've never worn any, but the angle these lifts are made, means when it says '2 inch height gain' it really is 1-1.5 range. Because they measure at the very back of the lift, this doesn't account for the foot NOT pivoting at the back, but it pivots at the ankle, which is 2 inches further down the slope of the lift.

The Dons tried to alter the shape of their elevator shoes, so that the slope is less and you end up with a bigger lift. They called it midsole tech.

@Truth

6'4" is a good height and I'm happy for you that you're enjoying the advantages and privileges of being that height, but you're being a bit condescending though. Especially when one point you said that guys under 6ft are sub-human.
Bobby said on 12/Sep/17
@blazer, not really, I have a morning height of 179cm on average, I used to religiously check this every morning. I look too tall to be a 5'9 guy anyway, most 5'9 guys I see, I edge out anyway. My morning height is too above 5'10, for me to be only 5'9 at any time of the day. I'm still three quarters above 5'9 around my ultimate low anyway. I'm pretty much a textbook 5'10.

@ Bego

In my opinion the average height of men in the UK is not 5'10", even excluding men from foreign backgrounds.
Truth said on 12/Sep/17
@Jack The Smackhead, very true. Arch was a bit blunt and inconsiderate of other's feelings. I myself would never go outright in real life and call shorter guys inferior. That would just be mean and as you pointed out, this is the height that nature has given them, so really not cool to kick a man when he is down.

The only situations when I call short men little doggies is when I see them acting tough and bullying others. It usually gets them all riled up haha

From 6'2.5 and up, you need to pack on some muscles otherwise, you'll just look too tall and slender. Shorter dudes I think should refrain as it just makes them look even shorter and stockier. In the gym, I see many started to lift casually for self-confidence and ended up overcompensating, turning themselves into uneasthetic muscle-bound cardboards.

240 lbs just takes too much effort to maintain it over long stretches. In my opinion, best let the body choose it's own natural weight. For me, I find 208lbs is my optimum functional weight for sports. Supper easy to maintain and takes zero effort in the kitchen. Much easier to find clothes as well :) Also noticed I attract very different type of girls at that weight.
Del Mar said on 12/Sep/17
Rob, two of my comments seem to have been lost? The comments was:

@Bobby
Reason I asked for age 2 height is because usually men end up slightly taller than the double of it when adults. At least, so it is said, so I wondered what you guys here experience on that matter.

My other comment was about how tall I could look here Click Here. Some of you might remember I have menntioned my height, but let's say if you didn't know 😉

The thing is though Johan, you don't need to look like a monster to gain respect among the people that matter in this world. People will respect you more when you're completely yourself, aren't trying to be something you're not and aren't afraid to be unique. Work out to feel great and healthy, if buffing up makes you feel good, stick with it for that reason, not to kid people into thinking you're a 250 pound monster as you don't really need to be to be a real man.


----------

You don't have a choice how others perceive you Arch, most people judge you on appearance and so I am used to the comments and even strange people touching my arms and shoulders. My wife on the other hand....well she gets annoyed.

Working out isn't just a hobby for me its a lifestyle and one that I have followed on and off for over 20 years I wouldn't really know how to be different even if I wanted to BUT what other people think doesn't matter to me at all. My wife wonders why I still do it after marriage and kids, she doesn't understand and neither do the majority of people.

Some people play cards or read a book to get some quiet time I have always liked lifting pieces of iron.

@blazer

I wake up at 5foot10.75,measure on a stadiometer.

I dont wear elevator shoes, but Sneaker that give 1.35 inch of height, I put 1 inch foam shoe lift inside, so it give 2.35 Of total height over barefeet, I measure myself on a stadiometer with them and the top of my head reach 6foot0.85

The thing is, Before i used to look at taller guys as competition. But in my mind its this. Guys that are 2inch shorter than my total height of 6foot0.85, so 5foot10.50 Guys with shoes. Its not competition at all.When im talking to them they are looking at my mouth, their eyes level are at my mouth. Shorter guys are no competition. Guys that are around 6foot are equal to me. 6foot2 guys are competition, But the way i see is this. I Bulk up with bodybuilding, So 6foot2 guys that are lanky are not competition. They look like bean pole next to me when i wear my shoes. Guys that are under 5foot10.5 with shoes, I wouldnt want to be in your place. Must suck alot.

@Johan lmao so true, but there's no reason to lie. I'm like 162 10% bodyfat more or less that's what I weighed at my last docs visit. I'm pretty Lean and defined. Yeah on stage would be 5-7% bf, and you can see every single shred and muscle it's crazy. But a lot of people do troll on the internet.

Good article on the 100 year height study released in 2014: Click Here , I suggest everyone on here checks it out, Rob has probably studied it already :P. ONE scandinavian country left in the top 10, Denmark at an average height of 181.4cm for males which is ofcourse, still very tall.. considering this is an average. But still. Must be because of all the junkfood spots that have opened over the years :p

I'm not sure if Bobby is really telling the truth now considering the shoe measurement.

Rob did you know that people born in the 1970s will all be in their 40s in two years the ones born in 1978 and 1979 will be the last ones to hit their 40s.

Hi Rob,how much do these add?

Editor Rob: not seen them up close, but from those photos in google images, I'd have thought a fraction under an inch.

Bobby said on 9/Sep/17
@Johan, that was a genuine mistake on my own, I was measured incorrectly as a teenager, and always assumed I was at least six foot after gaining three inches. It also doesn't help that I wasn't height conccious either and just assumed whatever height someone said they were, was true. When I asked my law teacher at 17, his height, he said 5'9 and I was 3-4 inches taller, so I'm thinking I was a 5'11/6'0ft back then. I also had this other teacher who claimed six foot and honestly looked it, if not, he was a strong 5'11 because he did have two inches on me. Though a lot of times, we almost seemed the same height as well, which just further fuelled that belief. Anyway, there's your history lesson, it's been seared into my memory, but the fact you even know all this and take the time to go looking for these comments, is a little disturbing. You're not gay for me, are you?

You could have just left it at "honest mistake" and I might have believed you. However I do believe the lady protests too much :)
Its good that you have finally accepted your height Bobby, well partly anyway since you keep going on about shoe height.
Nothing matter except barefoot measurements, all the rest is boosting.

Btw you do realise that you linked those articles below in response to Canson? I was curious and clicked on the article didn't need to do any searching i"m afraid.

Well said Arch Stanton!
Jack The Smackhead said on 11/Sep/17
@Arch Stanton: I seriously hope you're joking with that statement. You're deluded if you honestly think just because you are 6'4, you can have any women you want "without saying a word". How vain and cocky can you be? I assure you, no women would want someone you like you, who thinks he is superior just because his bones are a couple of inches longer than other men. Pathetic. I'm 5'11 and you've just insulted most men on this page who are under 6'2 and 6ft, as you describe them as "sub-human"? Nor would I ever assume i'm superior to other men that are shorter than me? it's just one of those things that you cannot control. I would love to see what you look like Arch, if you are so incredible like you describe - I want to see the face behind this inconsiderate brain of yours.
Editor Rob: Arch wasn't actually saying that, he was putting in quotes a kind of paraphrasing of the type of comments that sometimes have appeared on here over the years and saying that this kind of mentality or trolling was a bit silly.

Rob, if I'm only 176.5 cm morning out of bed, then would I be considered short among young guys in UK?
Editor Rob: you'd probably be viewed as average mostly, but with a percentage of people, they may see you as under average and some even view you as short...especially amongst 18-25 year old crowds.

Ben said on 11/Sep/17
I have to say something...the one öerson I called my father died in his sleep last night...

It's also time for me to come out, since I was 2 years old I've been living at a foster family and the one I've been refering to as my 6'2" uncle on this site was my foster faimly father but for me he was always my father and he was my was always there for me. I never even knew my real father and I have barely any contact with my real mom.

I've been through a lot of ****, especially the last 7 years. My dog I grew up with died in 2010 at the age of 7, my other dog died at the age of 14 in 2012, and one friend I grew up with at the foster family but moved into his real mom back in 2006 and became a drug addict died in 2012 at the age of 22, in 2012 he wanted to move in with us again to help him, he was doing so good and he wanted to move in with us so much, we of course happily said yes but then he dies in the hostpital because they gave him the wrong medicine. In 2016 I lost my dog at the age of 5. And now I lost the one that raised me since I was 2. He was always a very big and tough man and it felt so weird seeing him so weak the last few months, his weight before he was sick was about 225lbs and when he died his weight was about 160lbs. I remember it so clearly, my mom (my foster family mom) woke me up at 1am and while I was doing CPR I could feel how skinny and weak he was and it was disturbing and when the ambulance finally came they said he's dead and there was nothing we could do. My foster family mom (Which I will be refering to as my mom) met him in 1976 and in the early 80's they got married and now he died at the age of 65, her heart has basically been shattered, she's lost a part of herself. I'm so shocked and I don't know what to do, I can't believe it. In the foster family there's only people, me and my 5'6" friend who I've known since 2007. But thank you Rob for creating this site, it really helps getting away from things and it's a nice hobby to talk about height and right now I really need it. ☺

@Bobby, if sometimes you wake at only 5'10.25 then you are a strong 5'9. You should claim 5'9 or state that your 5'10 morning height.
Blake said on 10/Sep/17
Would you/have you ever think about adding a simple game to your site like a guess who is taller between 2 randomly generated celebrities from your database or any kind of game height related? I promise one day I will lose interest in this site for my sake and yours!
Editor Rob: A 'Higher or Lower' price is right type interaction might be interesting.

Editor Rob: so many models released by both companies makes it hard to tell!
Truth said on 10/Sep/17
I agree with Canson, wouldn't wanna be an inch taller either. At my height, I still got perfect body balance and coordination. Enough to slam dunk with either hand and smash it like superman when playing beach volley. Also got top speed, accel & change of direction for football & tennis so that's cool.
Not sure if I'd enjoy the same benefits if I were any taller. Yeah, you got the odd super-athletes who are gigantic but they're the exception. Most taller guys I know just don't have enough coordination & many of them end up with joint problems as well.

Besides, even if it weren't for sports, I wouldn't wanna be any taller as 6'4" is the perfect height for dating. Girls can wear their stilletoes and still get that comfy, safe feeling when they huddle into you for a cuddle.

Also it's groovy when you tower pretty much everyone at parties in your mocassins, specially when so many dudes are trying so hard using lifts and heels. And it kinda defeats their purpose cuz everyone notices anyways. Think if they wore flip flops, they'd score more points with the girls as it would show self-confidence. Just my 2 cents :)
tree said on 10/Sep/17
Rob why if i measure my height like 5-6 times in a row in 2 minutes the 7th measurment will be 2 milimiter lower.
BUT if i sit on a chair i recover the 2mm in 20 minutes.Maybe i stain my back a bit?
Editor Rob: yeah, you might be straining a bit.

relaxing on a couch during the evening can sometimes help ease the back and add 1-2mm.

I've tested this myself in the past and can find my low at 5pm, but at 8pm maybe 1-2mm taller.
Greg said on 10/Sep/17
@SammyDerrick, I know exactly the same video you're talking about. That guy was 5'5, they didn't think he was 5'8, unless you mean they said they wouldn't mind a 5'8 guy. I think most girls under 5'8 wouldn't mind a 5'8 guy but the ones that he would appeal the most to would be to 5'2-5'4 range girls. Also idk, a lot of girls where lying about their height in that video, towards the end the tallest girl was somewhere over 6 foot, the one next to her claimed 5'10 at worst I could see here strong 5'9, then the girl who looked 5'7-5'8 range claimed 5'10, but the other girl even said " you're not 5'10 I am" I would believe the other girl.. and right as soon as you said the 5'10.75" ( he might even be 5'11) guy I knew you where talking about Ariya. I'm really obsessed with height, so often I watch all those types of videos where people go around asking girls what their ideal height in a guy was. I've also been trying to get Rob to list Ariya for like forever lol. I wonder if he will actually get round to doing it one day. It's also interesting how vitalyzdtv who claims 5'11 (listed on here at 5'10.5") Met Ariya a couple years ago before he got famous. And on bodybuilding forums someone asked him how tall Vitaly was? To which he responded " I think like 6 feet he was way taller then I was " I believe they had equal footwear in the pictures. Unfortunately I can't find the picture anywhere, but they looked similar idk. Would be interesting to see how tall he actually was. Also I think it's odd how she guessed a weak 5ft 11 or 5'10 range guy at 6'1, she was definetly lying about her height. It was that light skin girl who said she wanted a guy who was 6'5 right? That whole video made me laugh, seems like they where just blurring out random numbers. E.g 6'0 6'2 6'3 6'5. But yeah, I wouldn't mind being a few inches taller like 1 or 2. Or at least being a comfortable 6 foot in the afternoon. I really regret not getting enough sleep in high school, and eating poorly I feel like this screwed me over majorly. I really wish there where some exercises or pull you can take that would make you grow I really do...

@Csimpson oh nice man I noticed, but then you removed me for some reason? Dunno why. Yeah Bobby is still here. But anon is a troll lol don't listen to him. Connor is a legit 6 foot, he did a measurement video and one of them was under a stadiometer..
Also what is he talking about " this Ukrainian dude?" Like is he just mad or something? Half the **** he talks about is nonsensical. Yeah he's jealous of my height by the looks of it that's why he's talking all this wreckless.
Greg said on 10/Sep/17
@Canson Yeah well I see what you mean, and yeah he probably would lose more then 1/4th but we won't know since we haven't met him in person or seen a measurement video from him, personally I think he can claim whatever he wants, that he measures throughout the day.

Editor Rob: probably not much over half inch range.
Bobby said on 10/Sep/17
@anon176, I also wake up over 5'10, at a comfortable 5'10.5, and have never dropped to almost a flat 176cm before, the lowest I've dropped was 5'9.5-5'9.75, which means, I'd be a flat 5'10 midday. Textbook 5'10 really.

I call BS on a lot of the people here... No offence, but I'm chuckling at some of the comments, we're all pro wrestler size right? Somebody has been reading too much of "Kevin Nash on Twitter: "283 at 7.8% body fat"... 😜

Its just bad trolling Arch, like height people like to fib about weight and bodyfat as well. Most don't have a clue what 7% or 10% looks like.

I sit at 14% body fat at 220 pounds /185 cm and most think I am a monster ( regular folks) Most think I am 188-190 cm and 250 pounds. Bodyfat has never come up but I am sure they would be shocked at the truth as well.

Down at 10% you are already jacked, ripped to hell with clear definition in all your muscle groups.

7% is pro competition bodybuilder haha.

It's a pity that a lot spoil it for others as over the years some people have had some interesting things to say and discuss here but this sort of comment "Some of you think a 6'1" dude who packs a lot of muscles can strike fear into men's hearts and make ladies swoon but that just shows how deluded you are. I'm 6'4" 240 pounds @ 7.5% bodyfat. I can walk into any room and have any lady I want on the spot without saying a word. Now that's something all the money in the world will never buy you. I've got a few friends around the same height and in top shape and it's the exact same deal for them. We just won the lottery when it comes to genetics. Put in the work in the gym and we're masters of the world. As far as I'm concerned, anything under 6'2" is small and guys under 6' are just sub-human." reduces the page to cretinous trolling.

There are times where I wonder how tall I would actually be if my spine and legs weren't curved, and if my back/neck wasn't hunched over. I was told that I would need to spend a ton of money to get this posture fixed through surgery, so it will never happen. People even figure out and ask if I have Scoliosis the vast majority of the time.
Blake said on 9/Sep/17
So Rob if you had been born female she is the exact to the millimeter equivalent height? I reckon she will be around 5 ft 7.5 once she stops growing?
Editor Rob: yes roughly 5ft 3-3.5 range would cover the 5ft 8.25 range

the predicted height would be around 5ft 7-8 for her...

Jenny at age 12-13 was 5ft 6 and 1/4, so after 13 she gained 2 inches.
Her sister (Iona's Mum) was about 5ft 7 at near 14 and ended up just over 5ft 9.
Canson said on 9/Sep/17
@G5'11: it's actually a morning height for him. He's only 5'10.75 out of bed. I don't buy for a second that he only loses .25" from out of bed until noon. That is not possible. Usually half inch is gone minimum maybe more like 5/8" if you have been up 5 hours at that point. But we see far worse so it's no different really with him doing that. I just don't see the value in claiming that when it's not even an average for him. Just my two cents that seems more like he's inflating himself for no reason no diff between 5'10 and 5'10 1/2" both are above average heights.

Now if he were maybe 5'10.25 at his lowest then I could see it. But even if he were not on this site and went to a doctor on routine and didn't know it varied, unless he goes within an hour or so of waking up he would likely be 5'10-5'10 3/8 which is just 5'10.
Luca said on 9/Sep/17
Rob,after how many hours waking up should you measure yourself to discover your real height?
Editor Rob: once you get to 6 hours, you won't shrink much more. But, a morning height is of course an actual height, it's just that nobody sees you at that height.

If you want to fit into the average time that people measure (assuming everybody was honest), then giving a height after being up 4-5 hours is fair enough.

@MM, dude, textbook 5'10 is basically legit 5'10, and that's all I'm saying that I am. You don't need to get all hostile, or call me a joke, I have measured 5'10.5 before though, especially with good sleep. In the mornings I'm basically 179cm, more or less.
Bobby said on 9/Sep/17
@jjj, nah man, 5'10.5 is indeed what I measure in the mornings, if I'm well hydrated and sleep on a good mattress. If I get poor sleep, it's around 5'10.25 in the morning. Generally though, I'm a strong 5'10 in the morning, always, that never fluctuates. Around the early afternoon to midday, I go to a flat 5'10 to 5'9.7/8s, and at my extreme low, which I reach carrying around my 25-30 pound backpack filled with textbooks, I get around 177cm. On average though, I am closer to a flat 5'10. I feel six foolish in the morning with shoes on, makes sense since I'm 5'11.5, or if I had poor sleep, it's 5'11.25. If they invented real miracle growth, I'd take it and hope to be 6'2.

we 5'9ers here get treated very poorly on celebheights. our height is depicted as way shorter than it is . I dont know if it is because of the number (single digit instead of 5'10) or something but it is hurtful :(

This is in response to the following individuals...@ Mr 6'8, @Truth and @Canson and many others,most women want a taller man...I'm saying as a guy whose 5'8.5(174cm)AFTER A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP and spends most of the day in the 5'7.5(171cm) range...BASICALLY I'm short.
However,if you watch this video Click Here you'll realize that some girls find my height 'attractive'(and I use this word very loosely)plus most women aren't that guy at estimating height...Click Here a guy whose 5'10 and 3/4 is found attractive by a girl who thinks he's 6'1...
When all is said and done,I'd wish that I was 5 inches taller NOT A FOOT TALLER @Mr 6'8 life can be a little rough at times...I'm pretty sure some drunk guys try to pick fights with you...for some strange reason.Plus all we can do is accept who we are without trolling each other...i.e.P.S.A. from a 5'8 guy...

Rob, if I ever meet you in person, perhaps when I go to London in May/June 2019 or if you ever go to Sweden, would you like to measure me?

@anon176 ok...so apprently I lie about my height. How tall do you think I am? I wake up at 180.5 (Measured a few months ago), go to sleep at 178.6 isch (Roughly measured last night). Plus you have my height measurement video I did back in May for the User Height Page (RIP) where I got 5´10.75" after about 4 hours out of bed. Glad I could prove you wrong :) But go ahead, try to bring me down, it won't work pal :) And please, leave Connor out of it, he has had a very rough time the last few months. Let's keep Celebheights peaceful shall we.

@DruceLee Cool, I didn't know that, I only knew the average was somewhere between 5'10"/5'11" according to Wikipedia. But well, I was only like 5'2" in 2013.

@Del Mar, hmm I have no idea how tall I was at the age of 2. But I do know that I was born at 50cm, at age 9 I was 133cm and at 10 I was 138.5 cm.
Del Mar said on 9/Sep/17
@Bobby
You're pretty close to the double though. I ask cause doctors predicts boys to be slightly taller than the double of what they are on the two-years control. I wonder just how precise that actually is for the general dude
Bobby said on 9/Sep/17
@Del Mar, I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess I was the average height of a two year old boy, which is 34.5 inches or 87.6 centimeters. Given my current height now... which is a comfortable 178cm, then I am more than twice as tall as I was since then but not three times as tall, since I'd be like nearly as tall as Robert Wadlow was.
Del Mar said on 9/Sep/17
Obviously this picture doesn't show us on the same level or from a good angle, but still what would you assume my height to be here Click Here. And let's say you don't know already, as I have menntioned my height in this thread before. I am, of course, the youngest man in the pic

Funny how all the height-liars&inflaters (Ben, Bobby, still missing Connor?-it's likely to come) out of sudden intermingle. Honestly this crazy Ukrainian dude seems to have a perceptual disturbance - if you look barely average, ok that's fine - but how on earth can you pose like a pro bodybuilder while your hip is wider than your shoulders 😂

Hello guys. I am a guy who just turned 16 years old and I am solid 185 cm (6'1). Do you guys think I'll make it to 6'2? I've grown 2.5 cm since last year.
Canson said on 8/Sep/17
@G5'11: yes I agree with you. Not to put down anyone who is that height but 6'8" is too tall. I'd say above 6'6" can bring major inconveniences really as most doorways are around 6'7-6'9" so you make a wrong move with shoes or out of bed you could hit easily. But this sheds light on why some taller guys in general are very firm about how tall they are and don't lie up or get frustrated when people inflate them to make themselves taller. It's because I'm aware of problems taller guys like that have and even the few I have I know I would not want to be any taller. lol I was serious that one post where we talked I told you that I would want to lose 1/2" rather than gain any height whether it's 1/2" or 1 inch or 2 inches. I mean 6'6" guys or even 6'7" aren't likely to have health issues but they will face a lot more than a guy who is maybe 6'2 or even 6'4. A 6'4 and 6'5 are pretty similar honestly but the 6'5" has less latitude with shoes as boots or Jordan's put them up there esp if it's a strong 6'5. for example with Christian, I have a friend who is his exact height and wears casual type shoe usually and is 6'6" on the cuff generally (6'5.25 at night barefoot). I reach that almost in boots and Jordan's evening maybe within 1/4" and it isn't all that bad but when you're talking about my friend getting up around 6'6.5 in higher pair of shoes it can make doorways, light fixtures etc less avoidable. Example if he wore Jordan's or timbs he would be close to A full 200cm in shoes even at night and likely is a 202 guy out of bed since he is likely a full 6'6" barefoot or a hair over upon waking. Now 6'6" isnt going to kill you neither would 6'7" but they make life a bit harder. 6'4 even brings some of the same but not to the degree of someone 6'8 barefoot

My "ideal" height would be a 6'3 7/8 evening or somewhere between 192.5-192.3 which would still essentially make me a close enough 6'4" to where I would still claim it. If you dip a little under it you won't even hit 6'5" with some shoes unless Jordans or Boots. But yes a lot of taller guys I know that are even taller than I am actually say 6'3" is ideal height not even 6'2".
