Clearly he's a fan of big shoes (see 2nd pic) as he's taller than Enrique in these!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jul/21
Editor Rob: sometimes it does look possible
I think it's arguable...what you have him at currently is a low range, never falls below it. Out of bed is easily 184.5-185cm zone. Average guess is too low.
said on 8/Jul/21
Rob, is 6ft on the dot possible?
I think in those shoes he's easily clearing 6ft1, maybe even pushing 6ft2...that's why he appears taller a lot
sometimes it does look possible

Rob how much height does that boot add? My dad saw him in the airport once. He's like 181-182, according to my dad. Really slim.
Could be 1.5-1.6 inch...or if the angle is making it 'thinner' as much as 1.75.
Sometimes if you photograph a shoe from higher up, then from floor level, the difference can be dramatic.

this man is an excellent example of why I am saying that around 6'0 is the best height for men .

Ricky's heels at that event were enormous Click Here
while Rock's footwear appears pretty flat. In regular shoes he appears too similar in height to guys like Timberlake to have a shot at a full 6ft listing.

Hey Rob, does Ricky Martin have a full six-foot chance? Here is his picture alongside Chris Rock from the 90s:
Ricky looked at least 2 inches taller than Chris Rock. Rob, how likely is the full 6 feet for him?
Ales said on 20/Aug/18
Would agree with this listing. I saw an interview on mtv in 1999 where he said he was 1.81/2. Also, I saw a quote from a UK newspaper in 2001 where it said he’s not short, he is the best part of six feet tall.

You obviously have no idea how tall you actually are, then. Sorry.
David said on 8/Oct/17
I'm 5'11" precisely in bare feet and met Ricky when he lived in LIC years ago. He was wearing sandals. He was a good 2" taller than I, so he's 6'1" and not a smidge under that. 5'11.5" is insane--he was measurably taller than I, by at least two inches. None of these other people seem to have an in-person frame of reference.

I never saw Letterman listed at 6'4", as far as I know he is about 6'2". As for Ricky Martin, he _is_ at least 6'. In that same interview with Letterman he said that when he was about 14 he looked like a 10 year-old, or something like that... did anyone watch that interview? I think Ricky Martin was a late bloomer.
Teague said on 17/Aug/08
First off Letterman is 6'4", so, in that case he is at least 6'!
Anonymous said on 15/Aug/08
Nonsense, he is actually slightly over 6'. I remember once watching Ricky Martin commenting the beggining of his career on Letterman, he said that when he was young people didn't make much of him because he was too short, Dave was really surprised at that and said "too short?!". So I assume he is probably not noticeably shorter than Letterman who is 6'2".
Brad said on 6/Jul/08
Wears big heels. 6' is about right. Why he isn't a movie star is beyond me. Poor management. Big down time between any projects. Not enough touring. His fans hate that.
Anonymous said on 1/Jul/08
Stefano , thats not an interview ,thats not coming out of rickys mouth ,is just a website with info that someone put in there.
Anonymous ,i didnt see the picture , but you have to take into consideration rickys heels , hes allways wearing big heels , if he is 6.2 is not necessary to be wearing big boots all the time you seem to ignore the photos down here where hes sporting more than normal heels.
Plus there is one interesting pic when he is near bush and he did not tower bush nor looked significally taller than him just answer that cuz i dont get it.

Hey Manolo if you say that Juan Luis Guerra is 2 meters(6'7") than Ricky Martin has to be like 6'2". And I am not saying it beacuse I am defending him, its beacuse I already saw the pic in there isnt 8 inches of diference between ricky and juan luis guerra its more 6 or 5 inches. But you cant really tell because how the pic was taken, and its hard to tell.
Manolo said on 10/Jun/08
Ricky is definitely 5 ft11in that means 180cm..look at that photo:Juan Luis Guerra is 2 metres tall and Juanes is 1.73 so Ricky is definitely 1.80 plus he always wears heels that's why people think he is taller than that but it's not!

Hey rob check this one:Click Here
Will Smith is leaning, but still is taller than Ricky , i wonder what kind of boots ricky has since his pant covers his heels ,looks like boot are they ?
Also ,where the 5.11 1/2 came from? I remember he was listed at 6 ft and all of a sudden you changed it to 1.82 ,have you based on his strange footwear to do that?
Andrew said on 12/Feb/08
As I'm reading the comments it's almost clear that most people who met Ricky IN PERSON says he is about 5,9 - 5,10 ( only one person said sth different ). So I think that could be his true height ( maybe all of them are one jealous **** who want to disgrace mr. Martin :) but I don't think so ). But the most interestin thing in this topic is how skillful and tricky he is - he looks really tall in every picture he appears. Maybe he's got great boots - if woman can look tall in high heels , man can also. Celeb official heights are often false - for example I'm from Poland and our prime minister Donald Tusk
seems to be tall guy ( in a press conferences, meetings ) and he is listed on the sites 5,11. But when he came to our city we were surprised he wasn't that tall - he was 5,7 - 5,8 ! Very interesting idea of this site Glenn and Rob:) Keep up on this work !
Anonymous said on 1/Feb/08
Why don't people realize that the debate should come to an end when there are people who have met Ricky IN PERSON? It doesn't matter how tall he can look, and much less on T.V., the "IN PERSON" fact is what counts ( to have seen him in concert doesn't count, because you have to stand on the same ground to judge someone). There are some people who look taller than they really are, and that is Ricky's case. I don't know if people lie here, but I'm 6' and I met him in person, and he was shorter than me. Having said that, there should only be one thing left to say: either I AM A LIAR or he is SHORTER THAN 6'. Personally, therefore, I think that Stacy lies. I would add that I happen to like Ricky Martin, and that I don't gain any money by saying he is shorter than he really is.
Glenn, what looks to you like a "relaxed posture" in the Metallica photo, looks to me like the typical tense posture of someone in high heels; in other words, he looks like he could fall if he doesn't pay attention or stops resting on James Hetfield's shoulders (I'm exaggerating so that you understands what his posture suggests me...) Regarding Bush
glenn said on 28/Jan/08
ricky was 6-2 when i saw him.but in boots.those pics are bad to judge with.sorry.he looks at least 6ft in the metallica pic.his posture is relaxed.and similar in the bush pic.all that said,i think he admitted once he was 5-11.

OK guys ,i want to clear up this thing of martins height.For those who think he is taller than the height listed here , here is the photo:Click Here
Ricky martin and President Bush
If Ricky is taller than the height listed here , he would have towered over bush who is 5.11. That wasnt the case.
Oh and for people who repeately claim that ricky is 6.1 here is the other photo :Click Here
Ricky martin with Metallicas James Hetfield
Hetfield is 6.1 so no way ricky martin is the same height.
Of course he can look very tall sometimes but please check his shoes because he wear some huge heels almost everytime.
And finally , Leonary , stop attacking Dcs ,sure , may be ricky wont be as short as 5.9 but I think he has a valid point which is ricky being sorter than the height listed everywhere
leonari said on 23/Jan/08
DCS: I fyou truly think Ricky Martin is 5'9" tha you are either 6'5 and /or can't gauge height for ****!
5'9" for Ricky martin..thats new one. Incredible.
Dcs said on 22/Jan/08
I shook hands with him London's Virgin Megastore in 1999 when he became number one in the U.K with Livin' la vida loca: THERE'S NO WAY HE CAN BE 182 cm, as I'm 185 and he was WAY shorter than me! I would say 175, more or less. Days before I met him, I heard a female journalist on Capital Radio saying that she felt deceived to find out he was so short when she met him but she was pleased with his English. Days after hearing that, I had the opportunity tho check that in person, so no one can tell me he is 182 whatsoever (but shortness is not an illness, by the way)

I'm watching italian television;ramazzotti(180) is near italian showman pippo baudo(185 at his peak) and ricky martin.baudo is taller than ramazzotti;martin is taller than baudo.There are little differences.If Baudo lost some inches and if ramazzotti isn't 180,martin is 182.But if baudo today is 185 and ramazzotti is 180,martin is 186.
luca,i'm watching in italian tv "telegatti oscar" and baudo is near bova(181);they are at the same height.I think that Baudo was 1,85 at his peak,now is 1,81.But if Martin was taller than baudo,he can't be only 1,82,but 1,85.

Eros Ramazzotti is very lucky to be even 5'9. There's a photo of him and Laura Pausini and Andrea Bocelli (I'm not bothering with tinyurl, please use Google). And if Ramazzoti is 5'11 Bocelli is 6'5. Although I believe Ramazzotti and Martin are far from the same height, Martin at 182cm is completely out.

He is taller!!!! I remember I saw him somewhere near to Elle McPherson - she was in very big heels (she herself is like 183 cm)and.... they were of the same height!!!! Really!!! I was also surprised! It was Miss Universe I guess, but not thi year.

I always though he was about 183-4cm, probably about 185 when he wakes up in the morning. Oh by the way how much does people loose height during the day Rob, and those everybody loose height or just certain people? I hope you can answer my question, beacuse I notice my self more taller when I wake up than when I go to sleep.
the taller you are, you could shrink more. But, anybody claiming they don't shrink at all...has a spinal column of an alien nature

Most of the sites that I looked for Ricky Martin's Height said that he was between 6'.05" and 6'.1" which for me sounds correct. I have seen Ricky Martin Martin and a Spanish TV show called bailando por un sueno next to the host Adal Ramones which he is only 1.69 cm(5'6") and Ricky defenetly looks like 1.84 cm (6'0.5"). I said Ricky is about my saize cuz I am 6'.1".

i love how women judge men's heights all the time, meanwhile they wear high heels... a girl who is 5'6" can give off an appearance of 5'9" with 4" inch heels, and standing next to a guy who is 6'2" make him look 6' and make a guy who is 6' look 5'10"
MD said on 21/Feb/06
Ricky is exactly the type of person that I think would care about his height. His build never looked more than average height, to me. I'd always guessed 5'10"-5'11," and he is nearly always in boots.
rockshock said on 20/Feb/06
he's not that tall!!
i've met him 3 times and i'd dare to say he's not taller than 5'10
he wears shoes with platforms... that's why he looks taller in pictures or videos.

Torero said on 12/Jan/06
judging by some of the pics, he looks like 5'11 tops. Firstly Will is leaning over and Ricky looks 2-3 inches shorter with Will leaning. Secondly, if will was standing fully straight Id think it would expose the height of Ricky Martin, which I think is about 5'11 or possibly shorter.

I think Martin is only about 5,10 or something. Becuase when he was on the jhonathon ross show he was atleast 3inches shorter than 6,1.5 Ross.

Yes he is considerably shorter than Will Smith. I'd say 3-4 inches in the photo plus he wears really big shoes. Well he definitely is the type of guy who would wear lifts. So i think he should be downgraded to about 5'11 at very least. Thank You

I would be shocked If this guy is under 6-0. But If he is shorter then Will, then the 5-10 to 5-11 is a possibility.

next to will smith whoes not 6'2 , hes less, ricky looks more then 2 inches shorter ( around 3-4 inches , as will is leaning over a lot), I reckon rickys under 6ft, maybe 5'10- 5'11, I think 6'.5 is pushing it seriously overboard
