What made you decide to upgrade Niall. This listing is perfect.
Editor Rob
Well I had another look at those 1d guys and feel he pulls off 5ft 8 more often than not
Harvey Huang said on 5/Nov/19
172.5cm

Rob's listing is perfect

Here he is with NCT127, a korean kpop group. Everyone in that group is between 5'8 - 5'11 and Niall is as tall as the shortest member. Good listing Rob

Like 5’7.75”!
cmillzz said on 10/Jul/19
If he’s even shorter than this listing, Rory Mcilroy is no taller than a flat 5’7.
MD said on 3/Jul/19
"My cousin Dale Winslow is 170 cm tall, and he said (this is a direct quote) "Niall did not really seem taller than me I think.""

I mean, I think he's shorter than currently listed. But if something this purely anecodtal - with an "I think" to end it, no less! lol - is your proof, then this is frankly ridiculous "evidence." Did you honestly think that was convincing? And then to call it an "atrocity?" lol Come back with something better.
Taled Khaban said on 1/Jul/19
There is literally no way that this guy is 172.1 cm. I've been a part of the Click Here community for nearly 6 years now and I have never seen such an atrocity. My cousin (who's name is Dale. I've removed his last name for privacy) met Niall at an awards show on December 7th 2016. My cousin Dale Winslow is 170 cm tall, and he said (this is a direct quote) "Niall did not really seem taller than me I think."

To conclude, I believe that this website's listing is inaccurate. Private Message me, or text me at ---- for more proof and/or discussion regarding this issue.

If this guy is taller than 5'7.75", then he is probably 5'8" but 5'9" is too mich for him.
cmillzz said on 24/Apr/19
Actually I take that back, I think 5’7.5-5’7.75” would be more reasonable for him.
cmillzz said on 11/Apr/19
I actually do think flat 5’8” could be possible for him.
Blindammo! said on 6/Apr/19
Hi Rob, Niall Horan claimed 5ft 9 today on instagram stories! Look up!
Editor Rob
He should have stuck with 5ft 8 as it is more believable I feel.
Mj7 said on 28/Mar/19
@rob

Think he might deserve a full 5'8 looks close to 5'9 these days. What's your opinion? Do you think he is using some height tricks like other one direction boys?
Editor Rob
He is pretty close to it
Bilbo Baggins said on 22/Feb/19
In this clip from James Corden's The Late Late Show two days ago - Click Here - Niall looked considerably taller than 5' 8"-ish James Corden. I'd put Niall at about 5' 9"-ish nowadays.
Quoter98777 said on 21/Feb/19
Looked 1.5" taller than 5'8 Corden walking side by side during the escape room segment. Please update to 5'9 Rob.
Tia said on 18/Jan/19
I feel like he has to be closer to 5’7 even or maybe 5,7.5 because he’s definitely shorter than Zayn and Louis and always has been in the band as he’s listed as being the same height here. He’s also shorter than Ed Sheehan also listed at 5’7.75
Warren said on 28/Aug/18
I feel like Niall and Hailee are about the same height as Justin and Hailey and Niall could be edge him out by a small fraction
Paula said on 17/Aug/18
Mariah John, Hailee is definitely not 5'8. She's said she's around 5'6-5'7 in the past. I'd say a solid 1.73 for Niall, and 1.68 for Hailee.
Maria John said on 17/Aug/18
He is taller than 5’8. He is dating Hailee who is 5’8 and he is taller. I would say maybe 5’9.5. You can see it here Click Here

Hailee did say she thought she was 5ft 6.75.

Johanne said on 4/May/18
I met Niall 2 weeks ago, and I was A LOT taller than him (I'm 181/5"11) and my friend is 5"7/170 and they were basically the same height, he was probs 2 or 3cm taller than her. I think he's 173 WITH shoes
Paz said on 12/Apr/18
Rob, apparently he claimed 5'9" on stage the other night. What's the bet he'll be 5'10" by the end of the year? ;)

5ft 9 in shoes is believable, but barefoot I struggle to see it!

Niall is 1.73 in the 2018
Dominika said on 17/Mar/18
Hey :) I met Niall couple days ago and I'm 175cm tall. Niall was wearing boots and I did flats (which couldn't make more than 1cm difference though) and we were the exact same height. I tried to google how much is that in feet but every site gave me a different number 😂😂 So I can confidently say he needs an upgrade 😉
Adnan said on 24/Feb/18
171 cm
Josh9 said on 20/Feb/18
I think his exact height is 172.7 cm on the dot. Bang on 5’8.
Warren said on 23/Jan/18
I think this is the strong evidence Rob

he's a legit 171cm
Editor Rob
I think 171cm would be the lowest I'd ever try to argue, I still think near 172 overall is possible.

Zayn is clearly the shortest....Nial can pull off 5'8 nowadays. Louis looks near enough 5'8 as well
Renegade said on 3/Nov/17
I could believe this for Niall but I think the others need downgrading because there's no way it's only a few mms between them. I would put Louis at 5'7.5 and Zayn at 5'7.25

I don't think that he's this tall, I'm sure that Rob would comfortably edge this guy out.
I think he's between 171-172cm

5'8" he is the same height as Louis tomlinson

Lol, the only one direction member to not excessively lie about their height. Using boy band logic(6 cm exaggeration) I would be 6'2.

@AJ

Lifts plus camera angle lol Niall is 5'8 so if Ellen is 5'7 he shouldn't be towering her by 4 inches. That would just make him same height as Leonardo Dicaprio 5'11.
Ronaldo said on 18/Jun/17
5ft 8in
AJ said on 17/Jun/17
@Tallish89

I think think the angles might have been in his favor, but regardless, I think 5'8" is probably the best listing. He should be upgraded.

@Bee123 They don't wear lifts lol. Except Zayn none out of them are really that height conscious. They wear boots, and I doubt it's cause "height", I mean those boots rock lol. Zayn wears platforms so it's safe to say he's very height conscious

Stop making a mockery out of yourself, you have already embarrassed yourself enough

quit trying to be edgy, if you're trying to insult me at least be original

Show some respect to people, stick to the height, don't start something you're going to cry about

@wrs567

Didn't you ask Rob to upgrade Bieber to 172cm claiming he looks taller than that height too? lol

Crazy fan
dfghvgh said on 25/Apr/17
one direction real height
Harry Styles = 5"10.5 or 5"11
Liam Payne = 5"10 or 5"9.5
Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horran,and Zyan Malik= 5"9 or 5"8.5 and maybe 5"8
Wrs567 said on 2/Apr/17
@Bee123: Nope not me. Wrong person.

and I think Niall is more closer to 5'7'' than 5'8''
Bee123 said on 31/Mar/17
@Wrs567

Aren't you on the Bieber page claiming Bieber is 5'8/5'9 lol

But your claiming Nail isn't?

i think 5 ft 7.5
Johnson said on 16/Mar/17
Now that Rob updated Harry Styles at 5'9.5 could be the time for 5'8 Niall Horan... I wish
Bee123 said on 12/Mar/17
He only seems honest cause he doesn't make ridiculous 5'10 claims like Zayn and Louis.

Just added a inch or so to his height no doubt he wears lifts his 1d photos proved it football pics he was shorter and on red carpet pics he looked 5'9...

Every 1D member wears lifts sometimes they can look anywhere from 2 to 4 inches differenlce in height
Kal said on 7/Mar/17
He looks 5'8
Cal77 said on 7/Mar/17
@AJ

I won't trust that Niall's taller than Joe at all. Every one direction member lies about their height but I think Naill just adds 1 inch which makes him seem honest.

Their are way too many pictures that suggest he wears lifts as well.
AJ said on 6/Mar/17
Are you still open to 5'8" or is weak 5'8" the max for Niall?
Editor Rob: AJ, you can't rule it out, I still feel his 'about' claim is reasonable, he's pretty close to 5ft 8.
Wrs567 said on 6/Mar/17
Niall is not 5'8''! that's just a bit over the top

A guy like Rob will comfortably measure taller than him

5'7.5'' - 5'7.75'' absolute maximum for Niall
AJ said on 4/Mar/17
Rob now that you upgraded Joe Jonas to 5'7.5", don't you think it's fair to update Niall to 5'8" because there's definetly atleast .5" difference between the two. Not to mention he's taller than Zayn and Louis.
Editor Rob: he's probably the most honest of them all when saying about 5ft 8.
Danny said on 6/Feb/17
The only 1D member thats not lying about their height. I think hes a full 5'8

Clearly taller than zayn. He must be not less than 5"8 Rob..i think he needs an upgrade
Addison said on 28/Oct/16
Rob, i think you should change his listing to 5'8, if you have seen the photo of joe jonas and niall recently, that photo is all you need to confirm that niall is a solid 5'8 and no shorter!

Some photos of Niall Horan with 6'6 listed rugby player Paul O'Connell from last week's Ryder Cup. Horan does not look 5'8 or less. Actually looks a bit taller than his listing. Michael Phelps is also photographed standing beside O'Connell...the difference is probably about 2.5 inches. I have met O'Connell. He is more 6'5 than 6'6.
Dot said on 7/Oct/16
Looks a full 5'8 to me. At least hes kinda honest about his height unlike his fellow band members
Hannah said on 23/Sep/16
Rob, what shoe size do you think he wears, and what's the average for 5-8 male
Editor Rob: maybe a 9, that is very common in 5ft 7-9 range for men, 8-9US size.

Hey rob, so are you pretty confident Niall would edge out zayn today.
Editor Rob: I think he probably is the most reasonably honest saying about 5ft 8, because he can look pretty near it...whereas guys like Harry claiming 6ft or Louis 5ft 10, is stretching things too far.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Jun/16
Rob, there's a typo on Zayne.. He does look 5 ft 8 with Messi and Timberlake.

Good upgrade Rob, there was way too much evidence suggesting the need for an upgrade, although I wouldn't be surprised if he's actually 5'8".

Because it's a picture with obviously bad angles. Truth is, though, that they really aren't as far apart in height as currently listed

how can they all look exactly the same (or 1cm difference) on the picture provided by Rob???
plus said on 8/Jun/16
@Rob you should check the pictures of Soccer Aid 2016. I don't think Nicky Byrne and Niall Horan are 3 cm apart. 1.5 cm max between them. Louis was also close (like 3-4 cm maximum) to Danny Jones (McFly) who is 177 cm tall, standing in the row
MD said on 7/Jun/16
Not only are they at least the same height, but Niall might be slightly taller. Louis has been listed too high for quite awhile now.

Ridiculous. At that height, he'd basically be the same height as the tallest guys in the band.

Looked not even 5" shorter than 6'2 Djokovic back stage after the Australian open final. I doubt he would have worn lifts for that. He also looked 5'9 in the Rooney and Mata pic. This kid needs an upgrade pronto.

Rob upgrade niall and zayn to 173cm or else downgrade louis to 170cm if niall and zayn are legit 171cm.

Niall said on 18/Dec/15
1D's heights are a little tricky, as Niall has always been listed as 5'7 in the official merchandise, but has been seen to be taller than Zayn and Louis who are "5'9" as the official merch claims. I'd say he's 5'8 or 5'9.
Liam said on 17/Dec/15
The height listed seems right skip to around 2:37 in the video and you can get a good idea, especially since they're all wearing the same footwear aswell.

Has 2" on 5'7 Mata and barely below 6'0 Gerrard. 5'9 for this kid, must have grown a couple inches as he's only 21 so it's possible.
MD said on 31/Jul/15
@Rob,

What's going on in these pictures with Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney? Even given the angles and possible footwear differences, they look so short. Are they considerably shorter than they are believed to be?

It can't be that Niall is taller than listed, because we have plenty of evidence that that is not the case. Is it really just the angles in these shots?
Guest said on 16/May/15
To be honest unlike other members, he doesn't add inches to his height. He's relatively honest i guess, i agree
Bishop said on 14/May/15
He seems relatively honest. But keep in mind he was 18 when he stated this, so he probably got influenced by the other members and will probably claim 5'9-10" soon enough.

At least Nial is the only honest one direction about their height.

Do they all wear lifts except for Liam or something? They all look about 5'9 here (compared to Liam), except for Harry. I mean he's obviously dropping height, but it doesn't look like much more than 0.5 inch.

I think Niall is 5'6.5'', It's just my opinion from what I've seen. No one has to agree with me.
