How tall is Vin Diesel

Vin Diesel's Height

5ft 11 ½ (181.6 cm)

American actor best known for roles in films such as the Fast and the Furious series, Pitch Black, XXX, Boiler Room, The Iron Giant and Saving Private Ryan. Vin has been described at a mind-bogglingly optimistic "6ft 4ins". He has claimed "I'm 6ft 1" on a radio show, but wears thick heeled boots a lot of the time.

@ Rob what do you think would be his max height? 5'11" flat?
Editor Rob
I feel for me the lowest I'd argue is 5ft 11.

"I really can't see over 5'10" oddly......"

Shocking I know

Rance said on 9/Apr/19
if vin was 5ft 11 why wear lifts ? and he clearly does. 5ft 11 isnt a bad height at all but personally i think he is actually 5ft 9, in 2 inch boots that takes him to 5ft 11, if a lift inside the boots he can easily reach 6ft, take note when in a pic with another celeb and hes standing straight both his legs are always very straight and close together. he stands like he has little stilts on,
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/19
Rob, how tall do you think his brothers are?


They both look very similar to Paul. Oddly enough his parents look on the shorter side
Editor Rob
They do look close in height, maybe within about an inch.
Johan 185 cm said on 8/Apr/19
Paul walker at 6 ft is silly, he was taller than Freddy Prince Jnr (6'0.25). I have Paul at 6'1.5" and Vin could look near him when in his huge boots.

Paul wearing a 0.5/0.75 in sneaker so around 6'2" and Vin at 5'11" wearing 2 inch boots getting him to 6'1".
Jimhopper said on 21/Mar/19
5-10 flat. His boots are ridiculous. Adds 3+ inches on lol.
billionaireslayer said on 18/Mar/19
5'9 n half at best, only reaches 6ft in boots with lifts, crazy to believe he is any taller, watch A Man Apart 2003, there is a scene where he pulls Timothy Olyphant who is around a believable 6ft out his car and Olyphant is in flats while Vin is in mega boots and Vin still looks shorter. Also Paul Walker autopsy list him at 5'11, while most list people taller than what they are due to toes pointing downward and spine decompression. Could have been a little over 6ft but due to the cause of his death maybe some height was lost on the table. If he was close to 6ft he would be coming off as 6'3 with his boots and lifts. 5'9 to 5'9 n half
Lara said on 18/Mar/19
I would say he is 1.80 m.
TheBat said on 14/Mar/19
The only way Vin Diesel could be 6'1" is in the 2 inch shoes he always wears. I will put him at exactly 5'11" barefoot.
George Kaufman said on 13/Mar/19
This guy claimed 6'4?!? LMAO
Editor Rob
He's not claimed that, but another actress once described him as that.
Akash// 181.8CM said on 10/Mar/19
Also, you should take a look at this video Rob.

Akash// 181.8CM said on 10/Mar/19
This man is not 5'11"!! He wears thick soles shoes and stuffs lifts inside all of them.
I agree with the other guy. All you need to do is take a look at him with his wife in that pic and he's barely a fraction taller and that as well it's because he's wearing Nike Shox that he's stuffed with lifts to hide with his baggy jeans.

He probably saw your video on Nike Shox as sneakers to make you taller and decoded to use them lol.
Editor Rob
Diesel rarely wears anything but boots, Shox are too small for him 😎

The funny thing is, I have Nike shox and air max...I've yet to wear them out and about. I'm waiting till I have lost a fraction of an inch in height before sizing up 😄
Bradley said on 28/Feb/19
Vin is 5' 10" barefoot. He wears custom wedge probably greater than the video.....of course with The Rock he needs a Bieber Board with mustard.
Rance said on 28/Feb/19
i think vin is 5ft 10 at the most maybe even 5ft 9 n half, even if if your 5,9 it wouldnt take alot to look 6ft, you wear boots with 2 inch heals and then inside those boots you have another 2 inch lifts lifting your heals, your then 5,11 - 6ft i put the rock at 6ft 1 not his often stated 6ft 3, the rock has a good 4- 5 inches on vin
maa said on 27/Feb/19
The lifts king....Probably only a 5 ft 11 guy that tries to be 6 ft 1...Around 2 in advantage compared to regular shoes...
Editor Rob said on 23/Feb/19
I did this video the other day and was going to put it up in March but thought since I've been promising for many years to do one on lifts, that it was best just to get the damn thing up...Better late than never! 😚

It just shows the actual lifts used and what height they give you. I think when folk talk about getting 3 inches of height just from lifts themselves, I'm not sure they've measured what lifts actually measure... 🤔

I have and show exactly what you get.

TW8 ss: tbf, that photo may be an outlier as, as RisingForce once noted, Vin once looked close to as tall as a heeled Jimenez once on a rare occasion where he wore normal dress shoes. This to me implies he can't be below 5'11". Click Here
TW8 ss said on 21/Feb/19
I think 5'10" is fair. His footwear is so suspicious.

Click Here

His wife is wearing flats and has similar posture to Vin. Vin is wearing Nike Shox which adds about 1.5"-1.7" of height and he barely clears his wife's listed 5'10" height. I do not believe his wife is 5'10" since even for females models are given an inch or two in most cases.

His arms are short too...they don't fit someone who is over 6' unless they have T-Rex arms.
Bradley said on 20/Feb/19
His monster boots get him 4" easy. He hates being 5 foot 10.
Editor Rob

To get 4 inches of height needs a massive amount of lift. 1.5 + 1.5 is possible to get around 3.

I will do a video next month showing how much lifts in boots can give.

yeah i Believe his shoes give him 4-5,5
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Jan/19
No, his boots aren't 4"-5". Likely close to 2", possibly closer to 3" if he has lifts. I doubt he's under 5'11", but he's definitely taller than 5'10".
rawdshaq said on 10/Jan/19
His boots are so thick, like I'm talking 4 - 5 inches. No way he is anywhere near 6' 1", he's 5' 10".
Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 9/Jan/19
Oh Vin, just another guy who adds like 2 inches to his height. Him and Telly Savalas both were like 5'10"-5'11" guys who tried to convince the world that they're over 6 foot. I get claiming 6'0", but 6'1"? Really? He was definitely quite a bit shorter than the late 6'2" Paul Walker in the Fast and the Furious movies. Luckily, most of the movies I've seen him in are him playing gentle giant cartoonish looking or CGI characters. He's like 5'11".
K.A 188 said on 6/Jan/19

5'11 flat seems like a safe bet for him.

I think he needs a downgrade Rob, 5 feet 11 suits much better for him.
Paul NS (6ft 0.5) said on 29/Dec/18
@Bradley and Simon James

IMO, Vin is definitely up there for worst height insecurity in Hollywood. He and Bono are a close competitor for the #1 slot but I might give Vin the edge because at least Bono actually is well under average heightwise, which makes his blatant huge lifts easier to understand. Vin is just being greedy with a solid height that a lot of people would kill to be, and he doesn't even have a sense of humor about it like Burt Reynolds.
Bradley said on 27/Dec/18
Simon nailed it. Huge complex with Sly second. He's 5-10. He needed a board with The Rock....kill shot for a 5-10er.
Timson.. said on 27/Dec/18
Click Here His wife is stated as 5-9.5 to 5-10. Here she is in flats. He is in a nice big sports sole trainer. Utterly no chance hes over 5-10.5 barefoot. He needs big big shoes to look tall.
Simon James said on 24/Dec/18
Vin has one of the worst short man complexes in Hollywood. I walked past him in the street once in NYC, and he was way shorter than I had imagined. I'm 6'0", and I was significantly taller. I was wearing low profile espadrilles, and he was in thick soled trainers. In so many pictures you can see the extent of the lifts he is wearing, because his knees are way too high up his legs; giving him the longest lower legs in the world. Having seen him in shorts, we know that isn't the case. This guy is in the 5'9" to 5'10" range. Max.
PAN BERRY said on 23/Dec/18
He’s got 5’10” written all over him when you see him in first xXx
berta said on 22/Dec/18
Click Here: Til LIndermann from Rammstein ( listed as 184 cm) have easy 2 cm on Vin when Vin is standing in his regular military posture and Of course lifts. Although i think Till Could be 185 cm guy. His very big build and large head can make him look shorter. I think Vin Could be a 181 cm flat guy, probably what he would measure.
Timson said on 20/Dec/18
Does look much taller than his 5-9 wife. He’s not over 5-11 flat definitely. 5-10.45 probably bare feet.
Heraffe said on 16/Nov/18
5’ 9’’

Look at the first scene in pitch black where he’s standing by his lonesome in his high heels, after finishing that poor chaps booze.
(A little after the 39m mark).
Canson said on 4/Nov/18
@Christian: he’s definitely a lift wearer. He could appear taller due to it I’ll say that much
Agent Orange said on 4/Nov/18
@Berta
I think he is 5"11.25 . Wakes up over 6ft. I think the fact that he wears lifts moderates people's perceptions negatively that he is much shorter than he actually is. I mean why would someone who is 5'11.25 wear lifts?
berta said on 3/Nov/18
the average guess seems a fraction to low. weak 182 could be to high. Paul walker was always mutch taller at about 187 and vince had maybe 3 cm fotwear advantage. Than means that it would only look 2 cm beetween them but was more.I think 5 `11 1/8- 1/4 but if his shoes are not as thick as we think, then he could be the listed height.

These are also close to what Vin wears: Click Here Ether that or an all black version of the Cascades with black laces. Click Here He probably has a pretty extensive collection of black boots, but almost all with a big logger heel.

They are pretty much one of the bigger styles he wore on some films, it could turn a 5ft 8 guy into looking 5ft 9.5 to people.

His boots will always be ramped cept in long distance action run shots...we can't have the Vinster falling forward and breaking his noggin.
Rising - 174 cm said on 15/Aug/18
Regardless of Vin's height, that video is really sloppy work. The person who made the video didn't come particularly close to matching Vin's famous black boots. This closeup at the 2016 People's Choice Awards looks to reveal a Skechers logo: Click Here We know Vin has worn Skecher Cascade Logger boots so that's a good possibility. Good shot back at the '03 MTV Europe Music Awards: Click Here You could probably say for sure if you could just zoom in a bit more to the logo on the tongue without reducing quality, but these are a pretty close match: Click Here They both have that red logo at the bottom: Click Here Either way, searching for black leather combat bats with a 4-5 cm logger heel and 2-2.5 cm platform will get you close. Then the uploader completely ignores Vin virtually pulling himself up to his maximum height while pushing down a leaning Rock, who is STILL taller and probably not above 6'2.5" himself. Vin is lucky if he even pulled off 6'1" at that event. Finally, one photo with Chuck Norris should be taken with a grain of salt when their feet and the ground aren't shown and footwear is unknown.

@187guy, I fully agree with you.

@Bradley

We can't give the Rock a pass either. His claim is no better than Vin's, if not even worse.
Bradley said on 31/Jul/18
Again, no board needed with the Rock if we believe his fibbin'. His 6-1 is laughing gas.
Rising - 174 cm said on 15/Jul/18
Well, he's not 6 feet or 182-183 cm minimum. If his girlfriend is her listed 5'10" then she'd be 6'1" in heels: Click Here You can argue those pics favor her a bit and exaggerate the difference, but it's still obvious Vin is shorter or 184 cm max in normal dress shoes. And Rock was only 6'2.5" by the time he was 40, then Vin struggles with 5'11" in this video: Click Here Some of that could be Rock on higher ground, but the size difference between them is striking and this assumes their boots cancel each other out, which usually isn't the case. Then if you look up the video of Vin break dancing with 5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon, it's tough to say their exact heights, but Vin definitely doesn't seem taller. He did actually wear normal shoes for once that night: Click Here You can see his ankles look in a pretty normal place there.

With that said, I don't see the 178-179 cm max 5'10" guesses either and Vin doesn't wear anywhere near 5" footwear. Those would be some of Mariah Carey's biggest heels! He wears combat/logger boots that add 1.5"-2" range along with the occasional 2" elevator shoe and even 1" dress shoes once in a while. He could add lifts to some of his boots, but probably not more than an inch or it'd be noticeable in the lace area. Vin can look his 6'1" claim at times and pretty regularly looks to hit 186-187 cm in boots so he'd need a 3.5"-4" boost to be 5'10".
Robinson said on 12/Jul/18

Agent Orange said on 27/Jun/18
Think he’s a 5’11 guy. His muscularity may make him appear smaller. Don’t think he wears lifts but yes some of his boots look to give a couple of inched. His forced posture does look a bit ridiculous tbh and us probably not good for his neck.
Rising - 174 cm said on 27/Jun/18
Even Vin wouldn't dare claim 6'4", but I'm sure the actress who estimated him at that height will never find herself out of work as long as Vin has anything to say about it. Outside of the 6'1" claim, it wouldn't surprise me if Vin has even tried claiming 6'2" because he actually use to get listed at that height regularly.

A typical pair of combat/logger boots for Vin come with a 1.5" to 1.75" heel and a 0.75" to 1" platform so that's an easy 4 cm gain without knowing what kind of insole or even lift he might have in there. This listing or 181-181.5 cm range is pretty safe because he looks to reach about 186-187 cm in a lot of his boots, but his posture will be at least 1 cm advantage over someone with more relaxed posture and some of his boots probably have a heel as big as 2". We've also seen Vin in what appear to be 2" elevator shoes, but he has looked to hit 6'2" in some of his footwear and pass for his 6'1" claim so even if he does occasionally supplement his thick boots with a lift, it'd still be difficult so see him shorter than 5'11".
tree said on 31/May/18
I don't hate him but his crazy imo to claim 6ft4
With a real 6ft4 guy Click Here i bet he would still claim 6ft1 even if he is asked next to a real 6ft4 man.

I bet he would go crazy if he would be short lol

Absolutely, Christian.
I would be shocked to learn that this person is taller than 5'11.5" in the morning, I do not see him above 180 cm (in the evening, barefoot). Only with all the tricks, in elevators (with insoles), excellent posture, he is 6'1". Barefoot ... I think 179 cm range!

Vin is like 179cm, 180 at the most. Always wears lifts and big boots and its very noticable too.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 19/Apr/18
It's difficult to give an exact number for guys like Diesel because we don't exactly know the amount of lift they stuff inside their shoes/boots. My estimate for him is 5'10"-5'11" range.
Jim Hopper said on 17/Apr/18
5-10 peak. BS again
joe joe said on 8/Apr/18
Rob look at this pic with Vin Diesel. Man this is uncomfortable to look at. The pose, the shoes. He has some real height issues. Do your think he has lifts in those boot Rob? For me it's a dead cert.

A man exhibiting this many symptoms of height issues is sure to have lifts in his boots

He's also giving himself and extra boost by putting his arms around the people next to him there by making sure he's getting full lift. he's got about an inch on 6ft Micheal Bisping in this pic haha. What makes it even more weird is that he probably isn't that short without the silly boots posing and lifts

Click Here
Editor Rob
he wears solid boots to enhance his stature...he likes to look a bit taller in public. I don't know if he has a lift in or not, half to 3/4 inch lifts are tricky to ever spot properly. Once you have 1-1.5 inch lifts, suddenly the laces area can bulge more than normal.

He wears logger boots at times which give him almost 2 inches, so he's looking an inch taller than normal and if he stands impecabbly, possibly an extra half inch compared to those around who aren't at military stance.

Dracula said on 28/Mar/18
@176cm guy
First of all, they had him listed at 5'9 in previous films, somebody mentioned that. Secondly, you can google those lifts, and see how much they add.
Heels on logger boots give you 2 inches of height. That's 5cm of height. Now, everybody has shoes, so deduct 2-3cm and you have 2-3cm height increase. Additionally, he has 7cm insoles.
Now 176cm+5cm(heel)+7cm insole=188cm 188cm-3cm(everybody has shoes)=185cm
Now, height addition doesn't equal highest point of his lift. You can see that on the picture below. You can deduct another 1-2cm loss. So in the end you have somebody who is 183-184cm tall in lifts (perceived height). He can sometimes seem taller depending on lifts, foot placement, other people shoes etc. But that doesn't matter, cause we are calculating his real height here, without lifts.

It's shame Vin is bald. He could add another 3 inches with hair :)

176cm guy said on 26/Mar/18
@KillerFrame I could see the 5'10" or 5'10.5" guesses seem reasonable, but i can't really see him being around my height. I would honestly be surprised if he did measure that tall. But i don't think the shoes he's wearing is going to give that much of a boost. Possibly the shoes he's wearing could give him around 2" of height advantage (including the lifts). If he's really the 5'11.5" that Rob guessed him to be. That means with my estimation, he is 6'1.5" with the shoes and lifts on. Since the average sneaker gives off about half an inch. He would look 6'1" to the guys that are wearing Vans or Converse. If there are guys wearing regular boots or dress shoes that might give out an inch in height. Then he would look 6'0.5" to them. If someone is wearing 1.5" thick boots or something, then he would look 6'0" to them. Pretty simple, if you ask me. But don't take my 2" shoe advantage guess literally, it's just a guess.
KillerFrame said on 27/Feb/18
@176cm guy
He competes with Rock (both are bald guys with huge muscles). Vin doesn't want to look small near him, that's why he is doing it. It's his job to play big bad boy. If you talk about insecurity, look at Rock. He has to abuse steroids to look the way he does, which are far more harmful than lifts. He even frauds his height by 3 inches. And yet nobody talks about his insecurities.

Have sympathy for this guy, he was playing bald buffed guy for years, and now is basically being challenged by Dwayne in fight that he cannot win.

And Rob's listing being 5'11 1/2 and him claiming 6'1, is basically frauding 1.5in. But in my opinion Vin is 176-177cm (5'9 1/2). Here is the proof that he has insoles inside his boots. Those boots can give him 2in and insoles 2-2.5in. I think:
1) 5'9 1/2 - barefoot.
2) 6'1 - in lifts.
3) 6' - perceived height barefoot.

Hey Rob, what can we do to tell Vinny to stop being so insecure about his height? Some people would die to be his height.
Editor Rob
I don't think he is going to suddenly switch to converse anytime soon, but I think let him be...he enjoys his style of boots which boost his height a little bit taller.

Everybody enhances their look to differing degrees. Be it styling your hair, the clothes you wear, the shoes/heels, the makeup, the eyebrow shaping, waxing, cosmetic surgery, bodybuilding etc.
JBieb said on 11/Feb/18
Rob, what do you think how tall the guy on the right side next to Diesel is?

Vin is probably gaining 2-3 inches by being significantly closer to the camera, maybe even 3 at least.
Gracian said on 10/Feb/18
Rob, now I'm going to ask a difficult question... Who do you think might turn out to be taller? Vin Diesel or Benedict Cumberbatch?
Editor Rob
It is hard to tell, as Cumberbatch has looked progressively shorter from the first time I seen him to last year, when I thought...this bloke doesn't look much over 5ft 11!

@Awkward: Russell was actually measured at 6’3” flat barefoot and that was as is the case with all NBA measurements since 09 an early morning measurement. Not to mention he had a bush when he was drafted so chances are he wasn’t even that. A 6’3”ish early Am less than an hour out of bed would make him 6’2.5 at a norm but my guess is he’s 6’2” flat. He looks about an inch shorter than 6’3 commissioner Silver

this page says hes only 5 foot 9 is that true Click Here

That same article lists Robert Downey Jr. at 5ft9in and Tom Cruise as a flat 5ft7in. It also says:"Officially, Tom Hardy is stated to be 5’10”, but most reports claim he is, at best, 5’9”."When we know that Tom claims 5ft9in and is listed that on IMDB and Google. They wrote that Arnold The Terminator is 5ft10in...
Why would we even care what they think at screenrantdotcom?
They have 0 credibility when it comes to discussing height. Rob and his website do.

As for Vin Diesel, i doubt he is 5ft 11.5in (181.6cm) today. I think 5ft10.5in would be closer to the truth. His boots may differ from 1 event to another so just because he wore lifts in his boots to one event doesn't mean he wore the same thing to another event. Meaning what? Meaning one day he gets 2.6in from his footwear, but on the next day he's getting only 1.75in. Catch my drift? He is consistent in wearing boots but inconsistent in how much height they give him.
What is really interesting is that he doesn't really try to hide it yet he doesn't look that silly. I mean he wears rather tight jeans with tight hems that do not drape over his footwear so everyone can see what he is wearing.

Rising - 174 cm said on 19/Nov/17
@Rob: I think these might actually be one of his pairs of boots: Click Here Either that or very similar.

Prada also makes a very similar one. Looking at both, the heel is anywhere from 1.5" to 1.75" and the platform from 0.75" to 1". All of which makes sense as that'll give you a nice boost. I also watched Fast 7 recently and Vin really doesn't look that much taller than 5'9" Kurt Russell in it. Perhaps 2" or so.
Editor Rob: yes, he favours boots like that, with a 1 and 3/4 inch heel, some pushing close to 2 inch.

the question is whether he puts anything inside them...

You're probably underestimating how thick those boots are. I have an opposite opinion, I think that anything more than 5'11" is injustice, and he's most likely between 179-180cm.

Paul Walker was a legit 6ft2in guy though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Oct/17
This is the lowest I'd argue for Diesel. 5ft11 flat is an injustice. He could look identical to Walker in some scenes when in boots and the latter in sneakers. At 5ft11 flat he wouldn't have pulled that off.
Jim Hopper said on 14/Oct/17
Do the math here. P walker is approx 6-1,5. Look 2" on Vin. Vins heels on those shoes are hilariously big! So if Vin 5-11.5 flat he would taller than Paul!!!! At least an 1" over him. Vin is not over 5-10.5. Click Here
Jim hopper said on 13/Oct/17
According to a BBC insider Ross was told before hand while interviewing diesel don't say too much on his height claim. Legit source I believe. He's around 5-10.5 max. Sly can look near 6-0 in enhanced boots while being 5-8.5 so diesel can look 6-1 6-2 easy in enhanced boots.

Now if Jonathan Ross pulled a gift-wrapped box and offered it to Vin and he opened it and saw a pair of lifts, that might be pushing things too far and Vin would blow up.

If his wife is 6'1" in those heels, then he would be lucky to scrape 6'0" in shoes when she wasn't bending her knees in that second pic you linked. Looks a good inch difference there but I will be conservative and say maybe vin had a 0.75 inch dress shoe , it still puts him at 5'11.25" max barefoot.
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Sep/17
While I don't THINK Vin had extra lifts with those black boots on that occasion in 2003, those boots are still going to make him look taller than he is regardless, but this photo of Vin in dress shoes and his 5'10" listed girlfriend in heels is what first made me guess 5'11.5": Click Here If she's 6'1" in those heels then Vin looks about 6'0.5" or so in shoes, though he looks shorter in these other full photos from that event: Click Here They look closer again in the last 2 photos, though.

Admittedly, he doesn't look 5'11.5" here barefoot with 5'6.25" Tony Jaa: Click Here but perhaps there's a better pic or photo of them available that day. I haven't had time to look through all the footage yet.

Btw, Vin did look to wear dress type shoes to at least two events this year.

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Fast 8 Paris premiere: Click Here Click Here

Not many height comparisons from those events, though. At least from what I've seen thus far.
Rising - 174 cm said on 15/Sep/17
@Tonyx: Good find, these definitely look like those: Click Here I think those are legitimately Skechers. Some celebs put their own insert lifts in. Sly Stallone's favorite shoes for a half decade were Hogan sneakers, which he seemed to insert a half inch to inch lift in based on how high his ankle was. Robert Downey Jr. wears expensive designer high-top sneakers - most of which don't come with lifts built in - and while high-tops would typically conceal lifts like Vin's boots as they cover more of the ankle, in Downey's case, he stuffs in big enough lifts that you can easily spot the bulge. So whether Vin is wearing custom built elevator boots or regular boots doesn't always tell us if he's wearing lifts.

These might be his black ones: Click Here 1.75" heel and look how similar the bottom of these are: Click Here You can see the logo in this close up, but I can't quite make out what it says: Click Here These Prada leather combat boots with a 1.5" heel and 1" platform are very similar as well: Click Here

I don't think Vin had lifts on that occasion, but I believe he wears supplements the already thick boots at times with up to an extra inch inside. It's pretty likely he has some custom boots as well with all those different colors like red, green, gray etc., some of which I'd guess are elevator boots. I think he's 5'11.5" and will hit 186 cm or so in a lot of his boots, sometimes looking taller with his exaggerated posture. He may even reach 187-188 cm at times when he adds a lift.
Tonyx said on 11/Sep/17

Diesel probably stuffed some thick orthopedic insoles inside maybe even a 1/2in lift inside, or is sneaky and those are custom made. Maybe he specifically asked for the Skechers logo to fool people and there is a 1in lift inside.
I think Vin is 5ft10.5in.
Guanzo said on 9/Sep/17
I want to those shoes imo but this shoes are custom made i think.
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Sep/17
Here's some good shots of Vin's typical black boots. I think when you consider the heel and platform along with the likelihood of a decent insole, those boots are probably giving him around 1.75" of actual height even without lifts, so we have to remember that it's a gain similar to some elevator shoes so along with Vin's longer legs, it might look funny and force up his posture with or without extra lifts. In these cases, I at least wouldn't rule out lifts looking at the lace area.

Close up at 2016 People's Choice Awards: Click Here
Fast & Furious 8 Photocall in Madrid: Click Here Click Here Click Here

So far, I've seen Vin wearing boots by Timberland, Porsche Design, Johnston & Murphy as well as Tod's, but have not seen a brand for his usual thick boots, which I suspect may be custom. While I think he's probably worn black ones both with and without extra lifts inside, I think more surely some of the red ones or green he's worn recently probably have lifts as the heel wasn't as big, but I don't doubt he was getting as much height at times. A different type of boot filming Fast 8, but the large heel remains: Click Here Click Here
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Sep/17
Shorter than Jamie Kennedy makes sense as I've been convinced for years now that 5'11.5" is spot on for Vin. It's rare I settle that much on one estimate with a controversial height, but needless to say, I'm glad Rob gradually dropped him to that and doesn't appear on the verge of dropping him further, although I can understand the average guess, though the flat 5'10" stuff has never seemed possible to me. However, I wouldn't rule out lifts on Red's rooftop photo. It's too far too tell for sure either way and the heels and platform are thick enough to give a good 1.75" absolute minimum without lifts, but the boots even look pretty short, which is typical of elevator boots. With his likely 1 cm posture advantage and footwear, he does struggle to look 2" taller than Tyrese, who I suspect may be more 5'10"-5'10.25" than 5'10.75", but then that would suggest Vin has no lifts or I'm over or underestimating one of them. I must admit Rob's listings with a 2 cm difference line up perfectly here. I posted this once before, but Vin in a more moderate 2" type elevator shoe and Tyrese in thin shoes: Click Here The difference could look greater than that, if you look at other pics and even the video available, but Tyrese looks to be in 2 cm footwear max. But to add a comparison I don't think has been posted. Vin and Michael Caine, who Rob lists at a current height of 184 cm:

Click Here

Click Here

Vin gets close with boots and posture, but it appears Caine still edges him. If Caine is down to 6'0.5" as listed by Rob at 80+ then Vin passes for about 6'0"-6'0.25".

At 50 years old, after 20 years of wearing heavy boots, lifting weights, staying muscular, these days he is 5ft10.5in. Wears elevator shoes only with a suit when he can't wear boots. When he wears boots, they look like logger type of boots with a pair of thick orthopedic insoles inside.

Has anyone even met Vin Diesel in real life, or does everyone just draw conclusions based on speculation?

I was in Miami about 10 yrs ago with a group of friends. One day half of us (6) went to the beach, and the other half went shopping along the main strip. I went to the beach.

We met up a few hours later and the group said they met Vin Diesel and Shaq (when he played for Miami Heat). It was at 2 seperate occasions they ran into them in the same day. All 6 of my friends said Vin was a runt. He was shorter than anything and did not match this 5'11" - 6' persona everyone thinks. One ofmy friends who is quite short (roughly 5' even) said he was about the same height as him. I highly doubt all 6 of them were lying to me.

People on here just wadte their time talking about stuff that isnt even true, and have no experience.

5'10.5 at the extreme lowest I don't think, more like flat 5'11. Or 5'11 and one eighth, on that case, a classic 5'11 wanting to look taller. I can't see the guy wearing more than 2.25 inches worth of footwear. So rob can round the guy up to strong 5'11 or down to flat 5'11.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 17/Jul/17
@ma

I agree with your estimates. And he does look a bit out of proportion when he puts on his lifts, such as short torso and arms and high knees. I believe body proportions plays a big role when it comes to hiding lifts. People with naturally long torso/arms and short legs are the best candidates for wearing lifts without looking odd.

That pic you used of Vin barefoot is from a clip of him training with 5'6" Tony Jaa. Its been posted before and he looked around 5 inches taller than him side by side.

He is 5'11"-5'11.25" tops.

Probably so. Vin being 5'10.5"-5'11" barefoot and his biggest boots boost him to 6'2" (which gives 3-3.5") So I can see Rob at 5'11"-5'11.5" if he wore them.

I think that if he was barefoot and gives his boots to Robbie Paul...Rob would edge him out
Editor Rob: the thing with elevators, no actor is really walking around in 4 inch Elevators.

Me at 6ft is impractical...I tested these about the house and garden a few times and I just can't see any actor spending time in public with such big footwear 😲😲

The ones James Kyson Lee wore, were certainly 3-inch styles, but he was walking about like a Drunk Penguin!
KipJaymesYes said on 21/Jun/17
This is true but quite funny. I have a friend who is 6'1" flat. He has met both The Rock and Vin Diesel. He first met Rock when Rock visited Samoa in 2004. My friend got to shake his hand at the airport and said Rock was definitely 2 inches taller than him which means Rock is 6'3" and not the ridiculous 6'5" or even 6'6" that they would bill him at in WWE. He also said he expected Rock to be bigger but was more on the lean side though still big.

My friend then met Vin Diesel 2 years later in Venice Beach. This is when Vin was single, no kids. At this particular time Vin wasn't wearing shoes and both he and my friend were barefoot on the concrete chatting it up. He told me Vin was 4 inches shorter than him which means Vin is 5'9". Vin even tried to tilt his head upward and puff his chest out to make up for the fact someone was bigger and taller than him for once. Truth is Rock's posture sucks and Vin wears ridiculous lifts and even stands erect 100% of the time to appear much taller and bigger than what he is.
RisingForce said on 20/Jun/17
That's simply not true, cepinac. Vin is not standing right next to the poster with a straight on angle. If even a mugshot were taken from that angle, the margin of error would be great. Sorry, but all I see is confirmation bias there.

In the above photo, Vin looks about 6 inches taller than Katee Sackhoff. Without knowing her exact heel size, she may be near 5'8" in them. But Vin is also standing straighter, and if you look at other photos, it doesn't look more than 5.5" to me: Click Here That puts Vin at 6'1.5" in boots again, which seems to be a pretty common height for him.

As for Rock, I'm not sure I've seen a really good comparison where they're close. There's the rooftop photo where Vin has huge lifts and visibly shorter than Rock in his own boots and in this video of the two, I don't see more than 5'11": Click Here I stick to my estimate of 5'11"-5'11.5" range and it would make sense that Vin in some of those ridiculous boots with perfect posture would come close to a 6'2.5" man with bad posture, but the photos I see aren't full ones and Rock is slouching. In those instances, even a guy like Sly Stallone could even appear 6'1" in photos, which must be impossible in the type of shoes he was wearing then.

@Christian: you're right! Not quite as high as Rock. I actually used to think rock wore lifts but now don't. Rock you're absolutely right is 191 with shoes and maybe 188 without. Vin may in lifts be still a couple inches shorter than him even with an advantage

I'm a bit confused. Do you mean that Diesel can look the same with Rock when he wears his lifts? Vin looking the same height as Rock means that Vin must be 191cm with shoes, which is too high imo.
Canson said on 18/Jun/17
@Christian: he can look close with Rock some days but others not. I agree with your estimate tho
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 18/Jun/17

6'2" in his lifts mean that he can look about 6'1" when standing next to everyone, right?
Canson said on 16/Jun/17
Good estimate Christian

Rising force: agreed in his lifts he can look 6'2"
RisingForce said on 15/Jun/17
The event at the bottom of my post? I do see about 6" in that first pic since it seems Donnie would reach low on Vin's nose, but he is a little closer while Donnie has better posture, but Vin does look an easy 6'1" compared to Bisping in the same pic if Bisping is in that 6'0.25"-6'0.5" range. Come to think of it, Vin did look as tall as Jonathan Ross to me when he appeared in his boots in 2013, though he was noticeably shorter in his 2009 appearance. So it does seem Vin's hits at least 186-188 cm in his boots, possibly even 189. This confirms they're at least close to as big as a lot think, but it also seems to suggest he gets more or less gain from different boots. Unfortunately, it's tougher than I'd expect to get good comparisons from events for the last XXX film.

Let's be succinct - 5"10 barefoot - Close to 6"2 shod with boots and whatever accessories are contained within. 190+ with all the gear seems extremely unlikely.
RisingForce said on 13/Jun/17
Now this pic doesn't make sense: Click Here Michael Bisping is in that 6'0"-6'0.5" range and Vin does pull off near 6'2" with him there, but I assume he's being helped not only by his elevator boots, but also the arm around shoulder push down and perhaps a camera angle. But Nina Dobrev is only 5'5"? How is that possible when she looks at least around 5'11" there in heels? I'm not familiar with her, but I guess that pic is just way off.

But you can see Vin now has his elevator boots in light blue as well! Click Here I still think the black ones he wore in NY recently are the biggest, but huge lift there!

This is another interesting one. I think berta referred to this and he was right, Vin looks like he's on his toes in his boots again: Click Here That one is a bit more of an elevator dress boot: Click Here Click Here But it still comes with all the height-enhancing ability Vin requires from a boot!

So far, I've only been convinced Vin reaches 186-187 cm in his elevator boots from what I've seen, so that first photo must be off. Now what that barefoot photo is good for is seeing Vin's proportions without height-enhancing footwear. That can at least give us some idea of how big of a boost he really gets.

My personal guess was that he is 175.

Wow! This is a great photo, brother.
Obviously, Vin Diesel is no more than 180 cm / 5'11 ".
By proportions, along the length of the arms and legs, it is not more than 180 cm. With this agree 95% of the guys at celebheights.com. I'm tired of repeating it ...
Those who think he's 5'11 "or more, you're just sick (sorry).

179-181 (evening and morning)

RisingForce said on 13/Jun/17
cepinac, sorry, but extrapolating off a poster in the background won't get you to Vin's height. As for the video, it doesn't tell us much. One is a walking still, which are terrible for height comparisons and we can't see their feet in the other 2. Chuck Norris is a known elevator boot wearer himself. Also, those aren't Vin's boots in the video. They're just random elevator boots and then a shoe lift. It seems Vin's boots are usually custom.

Here's Vin without boots: Click Here Pics from that night are the best we have of Vin without boots or elevator shoes. Vin's girlfriend Paloma Jimenez was listed 5'10" in her modeling days. If that's accurate then she'd be about 6'1" in those heels and Vin is barely shorter, so he'd be about 6'0.5" in normal dress shoes making him about the 5'11.5" Rob lists him. Paloma could be more 177 cm of course, which would make Vin about 181 in comparison, or even 5'9.5", which would make Vin around a flat 5'11". All possible of course.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 12/Jun/17
Vin is at least 2 inches taller than Chuck Norris. I believe Norris was the one who wore lifts when he met Vin, who was wearing normal shoes. Click Here If Norris wasn't wearing lifts, that would put Vin at 5'9", which is way too low.

There are surprisingly few good pics of Vin and Ice Cube, but here's the decent ones: Click Here Click Here Click Here It's not that easy to gauge the difference because of posture, raised eye levels and position, but in the pics it looks 3.5"-4" give or take, imo.

Here's video: Click Here Not a great angle, but you do see Samuel L Jackson and you can tell from about the 40 second mark that he's taller than Vin in sneakers similar to what Cube is wearing, but slouches a lot for photos.

Vin's boots look a bit different, but he still has a pretty thick heel and to me, there seems a good chance Vin has near 5 cm elevators with Cube in flat 2 cm type shoes. Here's one more good shot pretty close with a decent side view of Vin's boot: Click Here
RisingForce said on 1/Jun/17
Christian, I still believe Vin is 5'11.5", although I don't mean at his low. I definitely believe he drops to 181 cm at his low. Right now, I see anywhere from 5'11" to 5'11.5" as a fairly likely midday measurement. I can't say 5'10.5" is impossible because we've rarely seen Vin in normal shoes. As for Russell, I'm fine with taking his measured height, but I'd say for simplicity and a middle ground, lets say he's 6'3" on the nose. As I said, I'm not reading too much into the pic where Vin looks shorter because it's only one pic and not a full one, but it does certainly bring into doubt Vin passing for 6'1" with him. It's really difficult to tell if someone has a smaller lift in a boot, but I have said I think Vin wears boots both with and without lifts considering he can go from looking like a 5'11" range guy in them then look near his claim at 184-185 cm at other times.
Canson said on 1/Jun/17

@RisingForce

D'Angelo was officially measured at 6'3 1/4" without shoes in 2015 Click Here so that shouldn't put Vin at anything above 5'11", considering that he had footwear advantage over D'Angelo. And his measurement likely took place very early in the day, so he's only probably like 6'2.75" at his low, making Vin 5ft10.5, the height I guessed him at for a long time. I don't think he was wearing any lifts though, as his boots didn't look odd.
RisingForce said on 31/May/17
Here's what I'm talking about with 6'3.25" measured D'Angelo Russell.

He looks his 6'1" claim here, but Russell is losing height with his posture Click Here
This photo may suggest how much height Russell was losing, even with the camera advantage he doesn't look over 181 cm here: Click Here

It's not proof of anything since the pic he looks shorter in isn't full, but it may have been more of a posture advantage that helped him pass for his 6'1" claim with Russell.
Guanzo said on 31/May/17

RisingForce said on 30/May/17
Christian, it depends on how much height he wants to gain. High tops will conceal enough so your foot doesn't fall out, but if Vin wants a bigger 3"+ or 3.5" boost, he's going to need a thick boot. Of course, high tops can become obvious as well if you stuff big enough lifts in them, particularly if you don't buy the right size or adjust your pant length and cut. Just look at Robert Downey Jr. A longer than usual boot cut jean would be best, though I'm not sure it's his style, but at least he wouldn't look so much like he was standing on a box. Funny enough, usually baggy pants make your legs look shorter and can mask abnormally high knees, but it doesn't always work with Vin. If you go with sneakers, though, you definitely need high tops. Sly Stallone's favorite shoes were Hogan sneakers for a few years, but because they were just a big sneaker and not high tops, you could see his high ankle position when he sat down and when you put 1"+ insert lifts into regular shoes as opposed to custom elevators, you need to wear at least 1 full size bigger so all this made drew more attention to them and made the sneakers seem even bigger. Tom Cruise's big mistake is when he wears a thick boot with a big internal lift, he wears particularly tight jeans along with it and the jeans aren't long enough to begin with so then they end up looking way too short highlighting the bulky boots and lifts as well as high knees. The opposite of Cruise would be Antonio Banderas and Simon Cowell. They'll wear big heels and supplement them with internal lifts, but overcompensate with boot cut jeans too long, which draws attention, particularly with Cowell who looks in danger of tripping and because it's all covered, it can look like they're wearing ladies 3" high heels as opposed to a men's cuban heel + an internal lift. I've seen photos where you could be fooled into thinking it was a woman in jeans from the waist down.

For Vin, I think there are options. The 2" elevator shoes he wore to the 2013 Grammys with Tyrese are much better with a suit since his big Frankenstein boots look quite conspicuous with a suit, same thing with Sam Worthington. But I think your idea would be worth building off of for Vin. Maybe get custom high tops in that style with built in lifts. Then for a boot look, as I said on the Kane Hodder page about Kane's Frankenstein boots, there are fashionable and thick Timberland type styles many wear which give about 1.5" even without lifts so getting a custom designed pair like that with reasonable lifts inside doesn't sound too hard, or even putting a reasonable insert in Timberland or Caterpillar boots. Actually, if you look at the pic with D'Angelo Russell, Vin's boots blend in as pretty normal, but while Vin looks his 6'1" claim in the full pic, seeing the other pic, I now think a lot of that is D'Angelo's posture since he stands straight in the other pic and looks about 4 inches taller instead of 2 even with Vin closer to the camera.

But back to the main point, the only real reason Vin's boots would need to be even close to that obvious is wanting a 3"+ boost. I'm not completely convinced that's what he gets, but maybe it is on occasion. There are some guys who do a genuinely good job hiding lifts since there are a number I suspect, but aren't sure of. In Vin's case, cowboy boots wouldn't really be his style, but those are an easy way to hide an additional lift, plus, even without lifts, you're going to be getting 1.6"-1.7" over barefoot height anyway. Take Mel Gibson for instance, I don't think he was ever any taller than 5'9" barefoot, but I think he's fooled a lot of people because he's usually appeared in cowboy boots both on and off screen for 30 years since Lethal Weapon. I believe he's worn lifts a fair amount, but it's always hard to tell if someone has an extra lift inside a cowboy boot. Most people won't think twice and just assume someone is getting a bit extra boost from the bigger heel of that style.

@RisingForce

The second photo you posted was the most obvious. Even the average person can see that he's either wearing built-in elevator boots or normal boots with lifts stuffed inside it. I mean, look at how his feet has a sloping angle, and how the lift is buldging out of the boot, creating a visible crease. Click Here If he wants to make his footwear less suspicious, he should stop wearing his custom boots and start wearing high top sneakers, like Jordans or something, and then add lifts. His massive boots let the cat out of the bag everytime.
ma said on 29/May/17
@Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8)

Most of you guys think Vin is around 179-180. I believe he is 181-182 cm.
Everybody agrees that with lifts + boots he could gain 8-9 cm.
So that's why for me he could be 190 cm with his maximum internal lifts + extreme boots like these

Click Here
RisingForce said on 28/May/17
Christian, that's because Jensen Ackles edited Jared's page!

I think I remember Vin being on a box for that, funny enough, that reminded me of this Jonathan Ross interview: Click Here At 6:38 Jonathan Ross asks how much bigger Rock is than Vin and Vin replies 2-3 inches, but Ross doesn't buy it and says "No. More than that", which Vin replies "don't push it." Of course, Vin probably buys at least Rock's 6'4" claim, so Vin would almost definitely maintain his 6'1" claim and he might even try 6'2". Now Vin in his Frankenstein boots does pull off similar height to 6'1" Jonathan Ross at 3:55 in that video, but a few years earlier, you see Vin was noticeably shorter than Ross without his boots at 1:28 in this video: Click Here You see good side shots of Vin's shoes throughout the interview, such as 1:42, but I'd need higher quality to guess whether they're normal dress shoes or possibly 2" elevator shoes again. Without knowing about footwear, Vin definitely seems 5'11.5" max this time.

While I'm here, I might as well post a few more good shot of Vin's black elevator boots in Washington Heights recently: Click Here Click Here Click Here Well those boots will take him to heights for sure. And a good shot from the premiere: Click Here You see from the back that the heels are bigger than a lot of boots that style.
