Rob, the measurements from this site are midday, or evening?
Editor Rob
Generally I'd think of afternoon because there is a much bigger difference between 7am and 1pm versus 1pm and 7pm

178 for Iker

Editor Rob
Could seem over 6ft 2 there, but I would have thought he had a bit more sneaker so 188 range could be possible.

This man looks 5cm (ATLEAST) shorter than Cristiano Ronaldo, so he is not taller than 181cm.

Xavi said on 25/Jun/18
I met Casillas in a hotel in the northern part of Spain. Entering the elevator I found it a bit funny that he as a goalkeeper is shorter than me.
I measure 180 or 5'11. Even my company commented on his height...

He was shorter than 180 without any discussion of footwear or a slouched back.

Eod.

He's been listed as low as 175 and as high as 185. Pegging him in between sounds fair.
jjj said on 7/Jun/17
Wow. I knew he was on the shorter side for a goalkeeper, but he never appeared this height on the tv to me. Looking at pictures with other players i can see he is about 5'11 now. Very surprised i do have to say, but clearly it shows that height is not the be all and end all for a world class goalkeeper like him!
ok said on 19/May/17
Raw Height is a private stuff but I suspect he is 5"10(1.78cm barefoot) and 1.81cm in mitre boots . Too handsome to look at height
James said on 21/Apr/17
I think is time for a new downgrade. 5 ft 11 would be spot on.
RichardSpain said on 6/Apr/17
with shoes maybe 183 cm /184cm . Without shoes 181/182cm not more.
Johnny said on 15/Mar/17
On flat ground he can look 2 full inches shorter than Ronaldo, so nearer 5ft 11 flat than nearer 5ft 11.5.
Johnson said on 15/Mar/17
@Filippo look at the pics of Casillas with Rajoy. Rajoy is as tall as Obama

Johnson said on 19/Jan/17
@James I said gut bust measurement. I don't consider gut bust on my listings so I couldn't list Casillas over 182 cm. You should consider Casillas has poor instance, always.
But please look pictures of Casillas with Rajoy (as tall as Obama), or Zapatero 184 cm... you will see they are close enough and in suits.

I am of the opinion that Casillas is a typical 1.80 guy. No more, no less. I have friends that claim 1.80 themselves and they look the same.

Casillas is waaaaayyyy shorter than 185.5 Cristiano Ronaldo:

Look at Casillas' sneakers and you will notice his foot are nearer the camera than Benzema's ones, that explains why he looks similar.

In this pic, Benzema looks 1.83, Cristiano 185.5 and Casillas no more than 1.80:

James said on 18/Jan/17
@Johnson No Johnson, no. Look at the poll. Most people think Casillas is in the 1.80 range. And football players are measured in the morning so almost everybody think Casillas is 1.80 range in the morning. 182.5 is unbelievable for most people. I think Casillas is 182.5 in sneakers only, but not barefoot.
Johnson said on 30/Dec/16
With a gut bust measurement Casillas reaches 182.5 in medical test of course.
MDV said on 15/Dec/16
Rob, can you please add Sergio Ramos? He is in extraordinary shape and very discussed in the world for his goals in the last minutes of his matches ! Best defender at the moment in the world!
6 foot is perfect for him: always 2 cm more than Casillas
James said on 11/Dec/16
@Johnson Coentrao is 1.76. Ozil is listed here as 1.77 (he can be 1.78 at most). Coentrao is 2 cm shorter than 5' 10" Ozil and like 9 cm shorter than Cristiano:

Casillas is 2 cm shorter than Ramos, while Ramos is 2 cm shorter than Bale:

I still think Casillas is 1.81 morning height and 1.80 most time of the day. 1.79 just before going to bed.

He makes David Beckham look a weak 5'11.
Andrea said on 7/Nov/16
Rob, from what his 183 and 184 claims come? Considering you think he's 181 range, i would have said "maybe he measured in shoes and went with that", which is believable considering that a 181 guy could easily measure 183-184 range in shoes...
But again it seems he said to be 186 in shoes... Do you think it is just pure "upgrading"?
I'm not much into football, so I really don't know how tall he looks with others but, from reading the comments, it seems that nobody believes he's near his claims, let alone the 185 listings he generally gets listed at...
Editor Rob: one of the visitors linked to a big interview and said he claimed the 183cm there. I think if anybody looked at him with Ronaldo, less than 183 is believable, although I don't think he'd be less than 181 range, I did think a solid 181 range was possible.
Borats Chicken said on 6/Nov/16
Rob, i clicked football players and hes the only one there?
Editor Rob: yeah it was the wrong category, he's in the Soccer Players now.

I had decided at the start to use soccer to distinguish from Americans use of the Football term for NFL.

I find it confusing myself as I never use soccer, but since the majority of visitors are American, you can understand why I call it that.
Josh said on 6/Nov/16
He looks 5'11 flat. I don´t know why teams list him as 6'1.
Johnson said on 6/Nov/16
@MDV I would request Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Pirlo, Del Piero, Totti, Seedorf and of course... Carles Puyol
MDV said on 6/Nov/16
Rob, Casillas page has 66 comments and 48 votes in few days; more than anybody added recently. If you consider to add more footballer like Ronaldo luis,Ronaldinho,Buffon you will be more and more popular.
Editor Rob: that's more than I would have expected, but then he has been a big soccer name in the last 10+ years so many have seen him. Some people, well visitors might not know their height, so can't really offer an opinion.

But it is useful seeing a lot of guesses on new pages.

[Editor Rob: Tony, 169 range is possible, but I think she has a little bit lesser posture than Iker has.]

Yeah that's true, Iker has an excellent posture in that charity event pics. So ur saying that she might b near 5'7"?
BTW she's Pretty
Editor Rob: Tony, yes 169-170cm is very likely...and the two girls beside her are certainly not too bad either.
spainmen191cm said on 5/Nov/16
Rob, how tall do you think is Morata? he claimed 190cm on a tv program
Johnson said on 5/Nov/16
@James there are bad days and mistakes on medicals because of the person who measures. Kaká could be in that moment like 0.5 cm down his typical height. Cristiano could be stretching but I doubt much that his medicals are under of 186 mark. Marcelo was 18 he was 171.8 but now he is not under 173.5 for sure

MDV said on 4/Nov/16
@James I don' t know about Ronaldinho.
At the beginning I had your same opinion because Ronaldinho was clearly shorter than Beckham in the pics I saw, so 178 would fits him. But later i checked some pics of Ronaldinho and mike Tyson ( real 178 cm) in the same footwear and Ronaldinho was always an inch taller. So I'm very doubtful about him. Truth can be in the middle at about 179 cm; but for what I saw he can be anywhere between 178 and 180. That's why I asked Rob to make him a page: for see the average guess height about him (:
James said on 4/Nov/16
@Johnson Not only you claim with no evidence that Pato is 1.80. You also claim Ronaldinho is 1.81. Don't you see the contradiction? Ronaldinho is shorter than Pato, how can he be 1.81?
James said on 4/Nov/16
@Johnson Almost 24 years old Pato looks 1.79 with Neymar:
Click Here
Click Here

Pato is listed everywhere as 1.79 and looks it. I don't know why do you have to inflate his height with no evidence.


Click Here

Your 1.81 claim for Ronaldinho is just science fiction. He is kinda similar to 1.77 listed (probably 1.76) Seedorf and shorter than 1.79 Pato.

Ronaldinho is a legit 1.78 guy.
James said on 4/Nov/16
@Johnson Ronaldinho is shorter than 1.79 Alexandre Pato and almost identical to 1.77 Clarence Seedorf. He is 1.78 m. He is shorter than Pato, so he is obviously less than 1.80
spainmen191cm said on 4/Nov/16
I agree with James, about he has a height complex. I mean in his interviews he always says "he is 186-7 in shoes" I think that is, because he has always been criticized for being a short goalkeeper. He probably would like to be 6ft3
TD said on 4/Nov/16
I see you've downgraded him. This listing fits him better. A legit 5.11, strong 5.11 guy. When you compare him to Ramos a 6ft weak 6ft guy, and Beckham, a 5.11, more likely in my opinion, a weak 5.11 guy, this listing is more accurate for casillas.
Johnson said on 4/Nov/16
@James Pato was 179 as junior. Now he is 180 cm. Ronaldinho is similar to Guardiola 182 cm (no more than 1 cm apart)
James said on 4/Nov/16
On the medicals he was 100% sure standing on tiptoe, since he obviousy has a height complex. He is always lying about his height, his 184 cm claim is absurd. On the medicals Ramos was listed as 183 cm when he is minimum 2 full cm taller than Iker. Kaká was also listed as 185.6 cm and Cristiano as 186.5 cm. Those medicals are innacurate.

Morning height: 181.4 cm
Afternoon height: 180.6 cm
Night height: 179.8 cm

Since his afternoon height is 180.6 cm he can be correctly roundep up to 181 cm
Height said on 3/Nov/16
He could be a solid 182 cm.
James said on 3/Nov/16
@MDV You always make extremelly accurate guesses. But your estimation of Ronalinho's height is wrong.

I put messages below the listing of 182 cm when he was 15-16 years old. He is clearly taller than Raul who has always been listed 180 cm tall. (178 cm at 17 years old) Nobody can deny that in medicals he is 182 cm
Joe said on 3/Nov/16
Yeah, 5'11.25 is a better listing.
I still feel like 5'11 is closer, but a quarter inch difference is a margin of error.
Giorgi said on 3/Nov/16
I knew this guy was 182 cm max. It's cool how the world's legendary goalkeeper is shorter than you haha
MDV said on 3/Nov/16
@Editor Rob: well the average for Iker after 34 votes was right on 11.25, I think that is a good consensus to put him on the 181.

Ronaldinho, maybe in the future he will get a page, he could be nearly 5ft 11.

So Robbi, let's make it official and add the Ronaldinho page at 5 ft 11 :)

@anon real height is the usual height in medical controls... you said like "Casillas is claiming morning height" as if it was wrong. Nobody is around claiming evening nor saying less height than in medicals... is a little absurd
TD said on 2/Nov/16
Definitely 5.11, probably as legit as it will get, maybe 5.11.25 suits him best... 5.11.5 is being kind to him.

I am not sure about this listing.
Here he does look a tad shorter thanFabien Barthez who always looks no taller than 5'11"... Click Here
I think maybe Barthez has a small advantage but for sure a 182 cms next to a 180 cms doesn't seems as Casillas next to Barthez...

Johnson said on 2/Nov/16
@anon he has always been listed 185 cm. 183 cm was just a little confession. I have the leaked listing of Real Madrid: 182.2 cm exactly. And I have the listing when he was 15 years old he was Cadete (not even junior) and he was listed 182 cm in a magazine
anon said on 2/Nov/16
How many people even know their exact height unless they have been measured accurately, I am sure a lot of people claim their height in shoes or compare to others going off other people's claims, He said 1.83 in an Interview which could have easily been he got measured in morning or in shoes.
Jay 184cm said on 2/Nov/16
Looks 180cm with Ramos in those photos James has posted.
Also looks the exact same height as Di Maria (180cm) and Benzema, strangely (think he claims 184cm too.)
Looks 2 clear inches shorter than Ronaldo in the photo Johnny posted.
I'm saying 180-181cm at most.
Leonardo 1.73m said on 2/Nov/16
He has small head and his body still looks under 5'11

Nail it Rob, this is exactly what I'd have guess for him. Maybe 181cm, but I don't he's lower than that.

I don't get why he's listed at 6ft1 despite him claiming 183cm.

In my humble opinion he is 1.81. Here's why:

This is from a 2003 Real Madrid's calendar (Casillas being 22 years old). Here Casillas is listed as 1.80:

Would probably measure 181cm flat at his lowest, he looks visibly shorter than 6fters.
anon said on 1/Nov/16
Good Listing, He is likely 181-182cm range, 5'11.25- 5'11.5 I would give him the 5'11.5 based off that, as you say not quite a flat 6'0 but looks a solid 5'11 range guy, cant see him being under 181cm
Johhny said on 31/Oct/16
@Rob 5 ft 11.25 (181 cm) will be a better fit don't you think?
Editor Rob: from what I've seen I think somewhere over 5ft 11 but not a full 6ft.
Sam said on 31/Oct/16
Similar height to Valdes. Barely taller than Wayne Rooney to be honest.
MDV said on 31/Oct/16
Good to list famous player Rob.
I personally think that he is more 5 ft 11.25 in because he was very close to Beckham... or Beckham is a 5 ft 11.25 in and Casillas is 5 ft 11.5in
spainmen191cm said on 31/Oct/16
I think its a good adding to celebheights, he is listed everywhere at 6ft1!
Johnson said on 31/Oct/16
Great addition!!!!! I think he is 1.82
Tony Stork said on 31/Oct/16
@Editor Rob,

R u sure he's this tall? I would've guessed him more around 181 range rather than 182. He looks a bit over an inch shorter than Raphael Nadal, a good inch shorter than Bale and 1.5 inch shorter than Zidane. 182 isn't impossible, but I thought 181 would b a better fit.
Editor Rob: well I think 5ft 11.5 is probably the most, I could see the 11.25 argument...I do though think he could be taller than a guy like Beckham.
DruceLee said on 31/Oct/16
Rob, did you see him with Beckham? He could be 181 or 182...this is good listing for him
DruceLee said on 31/Oct/16
Rob, did you see him with Beckham? He could be 181 or 182...this is good listing for him
Editor Rob: he can look the same as Beckham at times, but also can seem to edge him if standing well...the odds are more likely he is a bit taller I feel.
