Wouldn't be surprised if he was under this, he barely looks average height to me.

Anybody have an idea of Simon Gallup height? Looks to me about 5-10 or 5-11, he´s quite skinny too.

I recently saw a video of him performing along side of Korn (Davis) and the 2 looked about the same height. When I looked up this listing, for a minute I was thinking Davis needs a serious downgrade from his 6'2". But then I noticed there was a scene where, for a split second, both singers' feet were visible. Davis (who was also holding loose posture throughout the performance) was in black socks while Smith was wearing really thick boots like these: Click Here
and was up on his toes! Don't be fooled if he looks taller, Smith is most likely (when not in boots and flat footed) about 5'10" as he claims.

He was definitely 5'10 in 85.

That's that 1985 tour program that has him at 5-10 (you have to scroll down a bit): Click Here
He can look short, no doubt, but that's maybe because he's a bit chubby... Most Cure members were smaller I think, Perry, Porl, Lol, Jason...
[Editor Rob: that's a better source than any I read, looks like it's directly from himself.]

Molko is shorter than 5 and 6 (well, maybe he is in some boots... )and Robert on stage looks really just a bit taller
Alice said on 18/Feb/11
well i compare it to ppl he has met for example Brian Molko is 5ft 6 and robert is a lil taller then him so i think about 5 ft 9 :P

5.8 max. No way he's 5.11
Tabby said on 16/Jan/11
I remember reading in a tour programme from '85 that he's 5'10".

He was 5'9 - 5'11
Those of you saying he's 6' are crazy.

I think he may actually be 6'.

He's always looked short to me....5'11? Really?! I'd guess him to be 5'9 max.

i met him once. i'm 5ft 11 and he was a couple of inches taller than me, but he had enormous boots on - he is probably my height i would say

could this mean robert and david bowie are the same height?
hermione said on 17/Dec/07
... his boots are really tall! i have a pair of Bunker boots (the same as him) and they make me look like a giant! i dont think he's 180cm! more like 175ish

I saw him several times on concert, and whenever he still looked 175(5-9) about
giulia said on 1/Jan/07
It's obviously absurd!!!!!!!!! Once I saw him on a concert and He looked no more than 174 centrimetres!This definitely a big blasphemy!!!!!
Glenn said on 20/Apr/06
I never saw him,but agree he might be 5-8,5-9.I always heard or read 5-10.and stupidly,I believed it.and read ballsy 6ft for him and David Gahan,who is 5-9.5 at best.

i meet him in rome in the backstage after his gig in the 2003.
i'm 6'1'' and he appered me 4/5 inches shorter than me.
5'11'' it's impossible, he had always huge boots and the classic darkwave hair style and in the best way he can appear like a pretty 5'10''.
in my opinion he's 5,9,,

...almost for 10 years I was an extreme fan, got tons of videos an pictures, I would say 5 9, maybe a bit smaller now... but he always wears flat shoes and molko always wearing high heels or excentric footwear... well 5 8 is possible...

I've done a bit of research on the cure and the other day I saw a photo of robert smith standing next to brian molko (who is 5'6) and he looked, at most 2 inches taller
