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.

@WIles and Slim
181 is definitely tall if we're talking globally. The global adult male average is no more than 5'7".
TheBat said on 28/Sep/20
@Wiles190

In Latin America or Asia, 5’11” can be considered legitimately tall depending what country you’re in.

Next to Tony Jaa (5-6) both barefoot he’s not more that 5-10 flat.
Bradley said on 25/Sep/20
That's not 5' 11" or more with Tony Jaa. He's 5-10.
Willes190 said on 25/Sep/20
On what planet is 181cm tall?
TheDon1528 said on 24/Sep/20
Around 5'11" if you ask me
Anthony B said on 22/Sep/20
Rob theres alot of votes where he's at 180.1 cm ....time for a downgrade
Anthony B said on 22/Sep/20
Why would a tall guy already wear elevator shoes or some type of foot enhancement rob?
Editor Rob
Women wear high heels for fashion, to accentuate the legs and body shape and also some of them will admit they enjoy the extra height it brings...Some guys might just like that extra inch a thick boot or lift gives, even those above average.

Whether there is elements of insecurity or not I don't know. It's their choice ultimately....but as I've joked before, it does make guessing height a bit harder, if somebody wears them.
Anthony B said on 20/Sep/20
Rob him and 5'6 Tony jaa..both are barefoot

Anthony B said on 20/Sep/20
Rob when will he get downgraded again he's around 5'10 3/4 -5'11 if he was that tall he wouldn't have to wear heavy lifts
Editor Rob
Diesel wears thick boots, but whether he wears lifts in his boots - that's speculation.
TheBat said on 18/Sep/20
5’11” at most, 5’10.5” at least.

@Slim 6’1

You can’t use movie scenes as evidence. Camera angles can make him look taller or shorter.
Slim 6'1" said on 11/Sep/20
181-182, evidence is the pacifier
S7even said on 10/Sep/20
this guy is STRUGGLING to be 5 10.5. and today im feeling generous
Sunil S said on 29/Aug/20
There's absolutely no way Vin is in the 5'11" range. At best, he's a strong 5'9," just a hair under 5'10" (pun intended). I've seen a few pictures where Vin was wearing a ridiculous pair of elevator shoes which barely got him up to Paul Walker's and Dwayne Johnson's heights. Google itself, which always lists an actor's exaggerated height) has him at 6'0." Vin needs a serious downgrade.
Pumpgun56 said on 26/Aug/20
hey rob how tall do you think is vin diesel in this picture with his air max 90? does he have lifts in his shoes? he looks close to the guy on the right who is 6‘3 Click Here
Editor Rob
Sam's I think a 6ft 2 guy, and Vin held up reasonably well at the event.

As for lifts in a pair of Air Max, well Click Here.

When you put a 3cm lift layer (which provides 0.7 inch of actual height), the space inside becomes very small. You have 1 inch from the lift to the lower part of the curve where your ankle sits above, so it's quite uncomfortable and your foot can slip out of them.

I'd be a bit surprised (from looking at bigger photos like this) if he had anything inside his sneakers.
Sean95 said on 18/Aug/20
Staying troll free, there's no way Vin is using 3"+ footwear from all recent images. They don't look anything odd like RDJ and certainly not Burt Reynolds type. Just a thick 1.75-2" boot. There's always a chance he may put a lift into his already thick boots, but how much can he really put in without making it noticeable? 0.25"-0.5" lift? If you think he's rocking in footwear that boosts 3" or higher you've never experimented with lifts/elevators, they look very different to how you walk.
Hotpots said on 16/Aug/20
Professional boot enhancement makers do 2” or 3” without any problem. The giveaway isn’t the boot it’s knee break in the pants. Like above. His knee break in those pants is obviously out of proportion. Vin uses imo 2.5 or 3” boots.
fiivefootten said on 15/Aug/20
I think he is a 5'10 guy who likes to make u believe he's 6'1.
Fivefooteye said on 11/Aug/20
@Big Rob

How much height add a pair of average and common boots?
Editor Rob
Vin boots are more 1.75-2 inch range, but normal boots can still give 1.25-1.5 range. Stuff like Timberland/Cat/work boots give that range.
Hotpots said on 7/Aug/20
5-11 is optimistic. Probably 5-10.75.
Slim 6'1" said on 7/Aug/20
his size matches the rocks but strength no way jose
TheBat said on 5/Aug/20
I still don't get why Vin is listed at 5'11.5". More often than not he looks more of a weak 5'11" than a strong 5'11".
Slim 6'1" said on 4/Aug/20
5’10” is stupid . He’s more like 181.5-182cm
Georg78 said on 4/Aug/20
Of course he is shorter than he claims and than he looks like in photos, because he stands up so straight and he wears boots. Still, I get a feeling that a lot of people exaggerate a lot when saying Diesel is actually 1.78 and shorter. The fact is like Rob says here: he is shorter than 1.85, but under 1.80 sounds also like a joke to me
vgno2 said on 3/Aug/20
dont understand how people think he is 5'10 etc. I think he is a 5'11.5 to 5'11.75 guy
Dmeyer said on 1/Aug/20
Wath botters me IS that in that shot were he look 5-11 with czokas he has aleast 1cm more shoes so 5-10,5

182 prime just missed out on mighty six foot mark
Eagleeye said on 31/Jul/20
I thought 5'11.25 in the past, but he uses big shoes, a weak 5'11 is perfect for him.

Editor Rob
no more than 5ft 11 that moment
Keith Bacchus said on 30/Jul/20
Yeah he clamed 6 foot 1 170 pounds not sure about 6 foot 1 maybe and maybe he was 170 pounds when he was much young but look bigger and he buld more muscles and in 2001 fast and furious he looked about for his height about just a quess 190 pounds or 200 might be under 200 pounds biceps maybe 18binches chest 48 inches waist 32 quads 26 inches
Keith Bacchus said on 30/Jul/20
6 foot or very close to it peak I think hes taller than 5 foot 11 or 5 foot 11.5
Johnny 181-182 cm said on 30/Jul/20
@Rob I am 5ft 11.5 range busting a gut in the evening. Can I pull off looking like a big guy if I wear Vin Diesel´s boots? Also can you recommend me some good logger boots which are available on Amazon which can add near 2 inches, the type Vin wears.
Editor Rob
I can't personally recommend any model as I've not tested them out. It's better doing some reading on the various logger boots on amazon and seeing what reviews say.
Sometimes paying more money like 150 bux for a good pair is a good investment compared to cheaper models.
Anthony B said on 29/Jul/20
He needs a extra half inch off rob he's 5'11 max

Everyone can say anything, but there's about 4inches difference (at least i think).

Maybe he is really 6'1 guy. He didn't look so small next to the rock or paul walker. Most celebrity already wear thick boots
Dmeyer said on 10/Jul/20
xxx is those times were he looks 5-11 flat as he wears those 1.8in type and yet looks 4cm under marton 6-1 czokas you could even argue 5-10.75 , and czokas cant be over 6-1 as he has a hard Time looking over 1in on 5-11.75 denzel today
Chinybobs said on 4/Jul/20
Problem with people guessing his height is they make the estimation while he’s in his special footwear. That’s the whole issue! The footwear is massively enhanced
Chinybobs said on 26/Jun/20
In Riddick he’s not as tall as Urban. Looks shorter even with his special boots about 2”
Peter175 said on 24/Jun/20
Rob, how can people believe Vin is less than 5'11"? I'm not sure if the Rock was ever 6'3" but there's no way he's like 5 inches on Vin, looks at most 3.5 inch. Walker has him by maybe 2.5", if anything Vin is closer to 6ft than 5'11" even taking out his footwear
Editor Rob
I can understand how a percentage estimate him as 5ft 10.5-11 range. People are entitled to their height estimations, but there's a fine line between genuine belief in a guess and outright height-trolling.
Jordan Gunnery said on 16/Jun/20
Hey Rob, i have an idea about Vin.
As for the height, i think he is max 5'11.25, instead for his weight in the first movies of the Fast Saga:
Fast One (2001) max 205 lbs, similar to the other actor Matt Schulze
Editor Rob
I'm not sure what Vin claimed for a weight.
I know earlier in Matt's career he used to list himself as 6ft 1 and 170 lbs, although he obviously looked heavier than that in 2001.
Panchsfhool said on 14/Jun/20
179-180 for this guy. His 6'2 and 6'4 claims sound like a joke but everyone has the right to claim whatever he want after all
Jam Cherry said on 10/Jun/20
In XXX 1st part he doesn’t look anything over 178.5 cm
Chinybobs said on 10/Jun/20
Has to be funniest guy in Hollywood in height terms. A 5-10,5 guy spending his career claiming 6-1+ claims.
Chinybobs said on 2/Jun/20
I think he’s made an honest mistake. Many famous people believe your height is in your enhanced shoes not in your socks. Lol. Wondering if he’s keeps on 3” boots while doing it with the wife.
Nik Ashton said on 29/May/20

@ Christian 6'5 3/8" - Absolute madness! How tall do you think the great Michael Jackson was and when was Howard Stern’s incredible claim?
viper said on 28/May/20
Reynolds not quite honest.

He was listed at 5-10 in college
Chinybobs said on 27/May/20
Anyone with any sense can see the knee break in the picture above is beyond abnormal. Looks ridiculous. 3” heel enhancement imo.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/May/20
@Nik
Michael Jackson being described as 6'2" by Howard Stern, was also insane.
Gaspergoo said on 25/May/20
Really...even if he is 5"10"....c'mon...thats hardly short.....I mean he is 5'11" to 6' with shoes on....a decent height in my book and he definitely does not look short on film because he is slightly above average height which in the USA is 5"9"....its people like Pacino, Cruise, etc that are obvious below average height and it shows.....Vin...like i said...even at 5'10" with shoes is almost 6'.....I am right at 5'10" and have measured myself with shoes and was right at about 5"11=1/2....almost 6'....i have never been called short and women have never had an issue with my height.....wait...correct women who are above average height in the 5"11" to 6' height usually go for men above 6'...but really 95% percent of the women i have come in contact with are shorter than me.....or below 5'10"
Nik Ashton said on 25/May/20
@ Rob - Burt Reynolds was honest about his height but it’s incredible that he was described as 6’5” by Paul Williams!
Nik Ashton said on 25/May/20
@ Christian 6'5 3/8" - I dunno but it’s also incredible he was listed as 5’12”! Whatever next? 4’24”?
Bradley said on 24/May/20
He's 5-10. Has that Burt complex to be 6 feet. He wears monster boots for a reason.
Kaido said on 24/May/20
he looks like currently exactly 5 feet 11 i give him Max 180.2cm
with shos 183 cm
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/May/20
@Chinybobs
I have the same sentiment as you, 180cm is the absolute maximum for him.
Chinybobs said on 23/May/20
Looked at at least 30 photos and watched a few of his films. Absolutely struggling to see him over 5-11 barefoot. 5-10.75 barefoot is maximum I can say.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/May/20
@Nik
Lmao, who the heck thought that 6'5" equals to 182!?
Nik said on 20/May/20
I've seen him described as 6'5" (182 cm) on one site and 5'12" on another, the 492 celebheights voters don't agree!

Claims that he is 6'4" (I'm not saying they are by Vin Diesel) must be the most incredible ones ever made about the height of a celebrity!
Editor Rob
One that is even more bizarre was Paul Williams, when he said "Pat took one look at Burt [Reynolds], who was 6-foot-5, and one look at me — I'm 5-foot-2 "
Tonyveiga said on 20/May/20
On fast five movie in the beach scene on the poarch Paul is barefoot and he has two inches on Vin in is boots 1.77cm guy
Anthony B said on 19/May/20
He looks close to 5'11 rob...why haven't been downgraded yet
Editor Rob
5ft 11 is the lowest I could ever go.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 19/May/20
@Chinybobs
Whether he claimed 6'4" or not, it's an absolute insult to legit 6'4" guys. It makes The Rock's 6'5" claim/listing look like child's play in comparison.
HeightRealist said on 17/May/20
One of my favourite actors!! Love the Riddick movies.

My friend Vin wears big shoes that give him a 2 inch lift. He looks 6'0 with the lifts. 5'10 barefeet. 5'11 first thing in the morning.
Gaspergoo said on 15/May/20
This is one actor that is suspect on height and i'm not even sure this website knows for sure how tall Vin true height really is......anywhere from 5"'10" to 5'11-1/2.........
Chinybobs said on 14/May/20
@rob. Oh sorry. That’s just insane by others to say he’s 6-4 lol. He’s not even over 6-0 barefoot. Those boots are the golden ticket. Very very enhancing.
Chinybobs said on 13/May/20
He once quoted 6-4????!????!!!! WTF???!!! Lol. He’s 5-10.5 absolute max. 3“+ boots on that’s him. Saw him on Jonathan Ross show. Looked spooked when questioned on his height!!
Editor Rob
Not Vin himself, but other people have described him 6ft 4.
Zoheb Nauman said on 12/May/20
He is a wannabe tall guy
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/May/20
If there's one celeb that deserves a downgrade, it's Diesel. Even more so than guys like Quinton Aaron and Shawne Merriman. At least those two aren't insecure about their height, to the point of resorting to wear boots with lifts in them.
Jam Cherry said on 4/May/20
Monstrous boots and strong posture presents him and RJD taller, Vin is nothing over 178.5 cm
Cockstride said on 4/May/20
He’s no more that 5-10.5 barefoot. Absolutely never ever. Just try to catch him not wearing enhanced footwear if you can. Barefoot he’s just about over average Male height. Add the magic boots and suddenly he can get tagged a taller guy. Insecure for sure. Jonathan Ross called him out on his true height and was visibly upset with that attention of the question asked. Next talk show he appears in the host should ask him to remove a boot. Lol.
Nearly 180cm guy said on 30/Apr/20
Vin's height is one of the biggest puzzles on this site... Vin is bald but his posture and heels often help him look taller than he really is! Here is one of his photos next to Karl Urban from 2004 where Vin looks taller than Karl: Click Here
Although in other photos Karl looks taller than Vin: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Traditionally, Vin's heel was thicker: Click Here Click Here
But in 2002 Vin met Samuel L. Jackson: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
In photos like these, the difference in height between them might seem small, but in other photos Samuel looked much taller than Vin: Click Here Click Here
As usual, Vin had thicker shoes: Click Here Click Here
Samuel is known for often having a loose posture and Vin almost always has a great posture, considering that I can believe that Samuel was a full 3 inches taller than Vin. Rob, what is the better chance of 5ft 11.25 for Vin or 6ft 2.25 for Samuel?
Editor Rob
181 is a figure many would estimate Diesel as being, sam nearer peak has over 2 inches on him, how much over 2 is debatable.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 29/Apr/20
@Anon
He'd be more like 181.5 in regular sneakers. Maybe 182.5 in Jordans or other thick basketball style sneakers.
Anon82673929 said on 27/Apr/20
179cm barefoot
182,5cm in nikes
184cm in logger boots
187cm in logger boots + lifts
Sonny Black said on 23/Apr/20
I’ve met Michael Bisping who’s about 5’11-5’11.5 and when I see Vin Diesel next to him he’s about an inch taller. I understand Vin Diesel wears big thick boots all the time so I imagine he’s probably around 5’11 1/2.
186cmTravis said on 22/Apr/20
If @cockstride is correct with the 2.5-3.5 inches he always looks like a 6 footer next to Paul Walker in those monster heels so he would only really be 5’9.5-5’8.5 I’d go in the middle for him at 5’9 maybe he’s 5’10 out of bed
Dmeyer said on 21/Apr/20
you can see the foot pose is normal in some shots were his shoes are about 1.6-1.8in and yet can look 6'0,25-6-1 like he would be 6-1-6-2 with the boots on even with 1 in lifts that gives no more than 0,6 in reality it still makes him 5-11
Cockstride said on 13/Apr/20
The math is simple really with him. The boots are a minimum of 2,5” up to 3.5” So in public he looks 6-0 to 6-1. He is definitely not over 5-11 barefoot.
R. M.McCarthy said on 11/Apr/20
Vincent stands even height with James Corden. Corden is 5'8" probably 5'7" barefoot. Quit with the ego trippin Vin, you have a crazy volume of movies, most of them pretty good. Ditch the lifts. You're not fooling anybody. I'll bet 100k you're not over 5'9".
kelvin said on 4/Apr/20
Vin Diesen began his trauma when he worked with Dwayne Johnson.
curious fact in a scene from the movie "blood shoot" you can see his heels XD.
is when he goes to his ex girlfriend's house I think.
I think he have stalone syndrome. wanted to be like the great Arnold.
but that is not and will never be the way.
meanwhile Jason Stakham laughs and receives millions with his Hobbs & Shaw.
berta said on 30/Mar/20
the funny thing with vin diesel is i would be shocked if he got measured anywhere from 178,5 - 183 he could really be anywhere in that range but probably somewhere in the middleand the middle is about 181 so thats what i give him.
pov said on 23/Mar/20
@Cokcstride, I couldn't agree with you more. I've been saying for years this man isn't even 5'11. He'd be claiming more than 6'1 if he was 182cm. I believe he is 179cm MAX
Cockstride said on 20/Mar/20
5-11.5 barefoot is way off imo. At least an inch shorter barefoot. His boots are 3” custom made.
Bob da cob. said on 9/Mar/20
Not sly even wears lifts as insane as vin does. 3” boots absolutely. Makes him around 5-10 barefoot.
Crab said on 5/Mar/20
5ft 11 1/2 is the highest I'd go for him. I genuinely wouldn't be surprised if he measured slightly under 5ft 11 honestly - but I think around this height is arguable. Under 6 foot, 100%. Maybe just brushes it right out of bed.
TheBat said on 4/Mar/20
Funny how the female model that said Vin was 6'4" also said The Rock was 6'6". Both of those guesses are just terribly way off.
Gunit said on 4/Mar/20
Between 1.79 - 1.80
Gaspergoo said on 2/Mar/20
I'm 5'10" even and I'm fine with that height ....never been called short....with shoes I'm 5'11 to 6....so hardly short....guess it depends on your desire to be tall
Bob da cob. said on 1/Mar/20
@bradley I agree. High time these celebrities come clean on their macho claims of height. Some celebrities out there who aren’t particularly tall but state legit heights these jokers should do the same and bin the Frankenstein boots lol.
Bradley said on 27/Feb/20
He's 5 foot 10 and nothing more....and he hates it.

Go watch him in the Johnathan Ross show. In some very suspicious footwear. Lol. Can’t be more that 5-10.5 barefoot
Johan 185 cm said on 14/Feb/20
Did he forget the lifts? He looked as I would expect a 5'11" guy to look with a 6'0.5" guy. Footwear advantage but around an inch shorter.
Bob da cob. said on 5/Feb/20
Look at the knee break in the picture above with Katee. It’s absolutely ridiculous!! Looks like those shoes are stacked to death boosting him.
Dmeyer said on 5/Feb/20
WE have to Wright to see the entire scène and see the premire pics to realy see the différence between vin and diesel , if Cena usualy wears 1-1,1in shoes and diesel 1.5-1.75in shoes if diesel IS 5-11=25 and Cena 6-0.25-0.5 they should look reasonably close
TheBat said on 3/Feb/20
5'10.75" would be a way better listing for Vin. He hasn't seen a 5'11.5" barefoot measurement any day, even out of bed.
183John said on 2/Feb/20
Honestly fast and furious 9 trailer shows him taller than Cena by an inch and then shorter by an inch so if he isn’t wearing boots in the scene where he’s shorter robs claim is right but if he is then Jesus he’s 5’9 1/2 barefoot
BB9 said on 1/Feb/20
In the trailer of fast 9, he is at least an inch shorter than Cena.
Bade said on 29/Jan/20
He could be 6'0 or a little above. But 6'1 is too much of a strech

A weak 6ft guy.
Bob da cob. said on 18/Jan/20
Problem here is people posting pictures of him in boots. It’s impossible to say a legit height. His footwear is insane. Looks 6-1 in his boots so I’d say those boots are boosting him 3” approximately. So he’s under 5-11 flat. I’d say 5-10.5 barefoot.
5'8Bobby said on 18/Jan/20
Come on he is no where near 5’8 if he was those elevator shoes would make him 5’11 max

191 cm Jason said on 12/Jan/20

Jason, bro, that's impossible because Vin at least 5'10.5" and 5'11.25 max, i think.
Seriously he isn't so short next to Paul Walker (legit tall guy) or Dwayne Johnson (legit tall), but yeah you're right he's lift shoes wearing guy even on beach (lol), unfortunately.
191 cm Jason said on 12/Jan/20
Vin was standing in front of me in a elevator in Beverly hills at a hotel he didn't have his lifts on. I'm 6'3' and Vin looked no more than 5'7'-5'8' max to me.

5-10.5 flat. Big time buller on his height.

6’1 like he claims robs listed him too low those boots only give him 2 inches at most and looks the same as Paul Walker when Paul has a sneaker on
TheBat said on 25/Dec/19
@Christian

Same, I used to believe The Rock was 6'5" until I saw him next to actors like Oliver Jackson-Cohen who's 6'3" and Dwayne looked at most .5 shorter than Oliver back in 2010.

When Show was in WcW as The Giant they billed him even higher at 7'4". Kevin Nash was billed 7'1". I think they went with a solid 3"-4" increase for alot of guys.

@Roderick
I've been watching wrestling on and off for nearly 2 decades, and I always knew subconsciously that Kane, Undertaker, and Nathan Jones, despite all 3 of them being called 7 feet tall at one point or another, were nowhere near Big Show's height, but it never came across my mind deep enough. I remember back in the day, they used to try to bill Big Show as high as 7'3", which I always knew was BS. If there's one thing I can't stand more than height inflation when it comes to wrestling, is inconsistency, in that some guys are inflated as high as 6 inches, while others are billed legit or even underlisted. If you're gonna inflate the wrestlers' heights by a certain amount, then apply the same standards to all of them. I'd rather all of them be inflated by 6 inches, then be inconsistent, tbh.

@Christian Same here. I used to believe Kane was a legit 7 footer just a few years ago. I remember I was watching an episode of Smackdown back in like 2011 and I seen Kane and Big Show standing on the ropes together and I noticed how Big Show looked noticeably taller than Kane by at least 3 inches. That's when I said "wait, something isn't right here" and used to go onto online forums where people said his real height was 6'8"-6'9", which I bought for a long time since I still believed Big Show was 7'0" at the time.

----------

Its strange they used to say he was 7'0" at times on the events as in games back in the 90's/early 00's I remember him being listed 6'9". That was the moment I realised Undertaker wasn't 6'10".

I'm guilty of believing in celebrities' listed heights as well. Heck, when I was younger and before taking interest in height. I used to believe that pro wrestling billed heights were legit, lol.

I actually believed his 6-2 listing when he was getting famous right after fast and furious and seeing him in knock around guys. Back when I believed in some actors listed heights.

He can look well over 6-0

Vin looks usually couple inches shorter than 6'2 Rock but hes gotta be in lifts or big boots. In reality 5'11 seems right. Any pics of him and 6'0 John Cena together to judge?

Not seen any useful comparison, there is a few photos of Vin in front of John, but I think I can tell from that Vin looks at least an inch smaller

He is 5'11 out of bed and 5'10.5 throughout the day. Paul Walker always had him by almost 4 inches and he never seemed to be that much taller than 5'4 Michelle rodrigues unless he wore lifts so yep. Definitely needs to be listed at 5'11

It's pretty easy to spot Vin wearing lifts. His knees break way higher than they normally would.

The leg break in the trousers is the give away. Looks so odd like it does with Ironman actor RDJ. Another notorious shoe enhancer lol. He’s 5-10,5 barefoot max. So insecure with his height. Got real touchy on the Jonathan Ross show when his height was mentioned.

Caldoni is 100% correct. If he were 5 11.5" plus those custom wedged monsters he wears all the time he'd be rockin' at 6-2 easy. He's 5-10 and hates it.

Caldoni said on 25/Oct/19
I think this is robs worse calling on a height. 5-11.5 barefoot is just insane. If he was those boots would make him 6-2 minimum. It’s logic with that massive footwear barefooted he’s a 5-10 approx man. Looks practically the same as his wife barefoot.

-----------

He has pulled off before looking near The Rock in height and Paul walker. He can reach 6'2" in his big boots. The regular ones that he wears give 1.5-2 inches. He does look a 6 foot guy near others. I give him 5'11" but I can understand why Rob goes for the top end of whats possible at 5'11.5".
Caldoni said on 30/Oct/19
His 3” Frankenstein boots make him 6-1. Absolutely no pictures of him barefoot looking over 5-11. 5.10-5 barefoot max.
Gaspergoo said on 29/Oct/19
Most likely 5'10".....not short just slightly above average....he doesn't look short in movies because he is not on the short side like Al Pacino

@Paton you’re likely not 6’0 if you think 5’9 is “really short” it’s average height. 3 inches of difference isn’t a lot. And I don’t think he’s under a weak or flat 5’11, even 5’10.5 would be like a low for him. Or extreme low I think he can look 5’11 range But he is a massive lift wearer.

True story. I ran into to him in SoHo after he finished his first real movie, Pitch Black. No one knew him at the time and he could walk around freely. I’m 6’0. I remember thinking he was really short like 5’ 9. There are rumors he pads his shoes and wear lifts. I think I saw him before he started doing this. This guy is short. Trust me.

The very lowest I would argue is 4.5" between him and 5'6.25" listed Tony jaa. They were barefoot.

The knee bend in his pants are ridiculous high. Probably is people think the Rock is 6-3 and he’s not. 6-2 is more realistic and vin loves to claim just under him at 6-3. Johnathan Ross asked him on the show and Vin was very sheepish about the answer.
TheBat said on 7/Oct/19
@Christian

Very true. He's definitely one of the biggest lift wearers in Hollywood today. And most above average guys including me are perfectly fine with our height. I've been usually measured at 5'10.5" sometimes as low as 5'10.25".
pov said on 7/Oct/19
How much would you say his footwear adds then rob? His soles always seem to be ateast 2 inches (in filming they are more). And I know he has something inside of them. 2 inches or more internal lifts, you can tell by the composition of his stance, if it was 1 inch he’d still have a natural look. His knees are fully locked in all of his pictures. So that means he must have atleast a 4 inches in his overall footwear, and he wears very high boots covering his ankles, enough to add another inch. I would say he has 4 inch increase minimum, but I really think he has 5 inch footwear. He’s the biggest height fraud in history, even more so than stalone
Editor Rob
He can get near 2 inches in a fair amount of boots he has worn - some of the carolina lumberjack style. A few times he might only get 1.5 inches...it is rare to see him in dress shoes

Those 2-inch boots are always going to look big, but whether he puts anything in them...
pov said on 6/Oct/19
The average guess says it all really. I usually agree with your listings rob, and they are usually spot on. But on this one occasion I disagree. If vin diesel was 182cm (181.6) and wears boots which add 5 whole inches (2 inch heels and 3 inch lifts), of course they wouldn’t add exactly 5 inches to his height, but he would probably measure around 188-189cm in them easily. Would he really be humble enough to claim 6”1 if he measures around 188-189cm in them boots? He wants as much height he can get. I do think he may measure around 185cm in those 5 inch lifts but barefoot he has to be 179cm, 180cm max.
Editor Rob
He's not wearing boots that give him 5 inches.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Oct/19

He's especially height conscious for an above average guy. Most actors who wear lifts and thick footwear are short or at the most below average.
Public Enemy said on 6/Oct/19

Yes you are right. The side pic on Diesel’s boots looks about 4 cm and not 6 cm as I first thought when looking at the front. Walker’s heel looks 2 cm.
Johan 185 cm said on 6/Oct/19
Public Enemy said on 5/Oct/19
@Johan
Nice pic of diesel and walker in their suits but if you check closely in the pic Vin’s boot heel is about three times the size of walker heel so Vin has a 4 cm heel advantage on walkers shoes which look 2 cm heel. I think walker is 187-188cm standing tall and diesel at 180.5 cm standing tall minus footwear.

-----------------

Click Here

Side shot of the footwear. Laces are normal, foot position is normal. Thats only 3-4cm max boot. Looks smaller than a timberland. Absolute max difference in footwear is 0.75" but I think 0.5 inch is good. Which puts him 3" shorter than Walker footwear advantage included in that pic from before. Other pics show more 2" so putting him 2.5" shorter.

Walker at 6'2" puts him at 5'11"-5'11.5" max. Which is why I always had him at 5'11.25" ( 180.975cm).

So for me anything 5'11-5'11.25" is possible but not over or under. Outside chance of 5'10.75" or 5'11.5".
Editor Rob
if you went down to ground level and photographed it, I'm sure it would be no less than 4cm. He's worn thicker than that on occasions, like those Carolina logger style boots near 2 inches in some films.

@Johan
It's certainly not too low. 5'11.5" is a joke for Diesel, to be honest. If he was as tall as 5'11.5", then Paul Walker's 6'2.5". I've always put Diesel at around the 5'10.5"-5'11" range, even when I first came here. 5'11" is the best case for him.

--------------

5'11.5" is too high but still better than his former listing of 5'11.75". Took a long time to convince Rob that he was lower. I have always argued 5'11-5'11.25", when he does wear lifts he gets up to 6'2" in boots. For a 5'10.5" guy that is 3.5" of a boost. Rob has tried elevator boots, 4 inchers and I don't see Diesel in that size of footwear. He is too mobile for that kind of lift.

Then there is now a clip of him barefoot with 5'6" Tony jaa training so at their lows and he looks easily 5 inches taller.

Walker to me was 6'1.75" tops. He didn't look the full 6'2" but also tended to wear vans and so maybe was only 6'2.25" max in footwear.

Click Here

That is one of the only times I have seen him 1) wear a regular 3-4cm boot and 2) Walker stand with good posture and have a dress shoe. He probably only has 1/4-1/2 max more footwear and is 2.5" approx shorter than a guy who is almost 6'2".

So if Walker stays 6'2" than Vin needs to be down to 5'11-5'11.25"...

IF Walker is less I would think more 5'10.75"-5'11".

How he could look with big boosters

Look at how his jeans fall on his boots. Having Walker at 6'2" not many would doubt his 6'1" claim from that pic.

I couldn’t agree more withv you @Dhrew Ghelani. @Johan185cm he defo wears 5 inch lifts. 2 inch boots and 3 inch lifts inside them. If he was 5”11.5 wearing that he’d look well over 6”1 with those big boots including lifts. If he was a legit 5”11.5 he wouldn’t really need to wear those big ass boots with lifts on top to look his 6”1 claim. 2 inch boots on his own would make him look like a solid 6”0, and in many cases he’d get away with 6”1 as most people over their height. he can’t fool me with those his claims with his ridiculous shoes. I think he’s 179cm nothing more.
Johan 185 cm said on 30/Sep/19
Dhrew Ghelani said on 25/Sep/19
He struggles to even look his '6'1' claim even with lifts, noticeably a few inches shorter than the late Paul walker, as well as Dwayne Johnson, and Chris Pratt .

Rob:
A) If he was a 5'11.5 guy, wearing 5 inch lifts he could be easily mistaken for a solid 6'1 if not 6'2.


------------

People overestimate lifts even elevator boots. Rob tried a pair of huge boots from Don's and they gave 4 inches of height. I don't think Vin wears ones that big they look more like common elevators that are 2.5-3 inches. 5 inches is huge we are talking about platform heels or some rare designer models that gave more height for women with bigger feet. Does that even exist Rob? 5 inches for men?
Editor Rob
The Dons boots are massive and because of the high angle of internal lift the boot needs reduced 2 sizes.

To get an actual 5 inches is really hard - the front section needs to be more 1.5 inch high to get anywhere near it.
Abdullah ass said on 29/Sep/19

Caldoni said on 24/Sep/19
The knee break in his trousers is the tell tale sign of massive lifts. His legs look short but his knee breaks are way too high. RDJ wears ridiculously huge boots and you see it the same with him. Vin is not over 5-11.

Diesel isn’t below 5’11 I truly believe he’s 6’1 no shoes are flat of course he’s not going to tower over Paul Walker his boots aren’t even that thick they give him around an inch to an inch and a half plus in most of their Paul has a heel and celeb heights has him as 6’2 there’s no way Vin Diesel is lifting that badly he probably just has good posture granted there’s a good chance he could be around the 6’0-6’1 range at times but his elevator boots don’t give him 2+ inches I’ll give him 6’1 maybe he’s lost some height because he’s in his 50’s but no way is he below 5’11
Dmeyer said on 26/Aug/19
Click Here , for exemple the foot pose IS very normal and he gets no More than 2cm extra compare to the other and looks about 6'0,25 Guy will look in normal shoes he has to be 181cm 5'11-11,5 is the zone under 180 or over 181,5 IS unlikely
Dmeyer said on 26/Aug/19
People seem to forget that its very likely his Boots just give 1,75in plus exelent posture he could look about 3cm taller than his Real height , that will make him solid 181cm or maybe but i doubt its the case he has a 1in lifts inside so so another 1,5cm extra and that will make him 180ish

He is 179 MAX..because i have seen a picture of him with his wife who i think is 177 and he did not look more than 4 cm taller than despite his big shoes while she wore some flat flip flops.

pov said on 4/Aug/19
Rob if he claims 6”1 in his big ass elevator boots there is no way he’s 181cm barefoot. You wouldnt need elevator boots to look 6”1, good example is drake who is probably 182cm barefeet, but in timberlands and his airforces which he loves wearing he’d easily measure 6”1 as they add around 4cm. Vin wears elevator shoes and he always looked atleast 2 inches shorter than paul walker. I think he’s 176cm MAX.
Lamont Cranston said on 4/Aug/19
Anyone who thinks Vin is anywhere close to 6’ refuses to look at any picture where you can see his footwear.

In some ways, at least Vin is open about it, with the 1” soles being visible, and who knows how much ‘lift’ built into the hidden heel.

This is one of the images from that clip when he is barefoot with Tony Jaa (5'6"), look at the top of their heads its more than 4 inches more a solid 5 inches. Hard to say from the pic to the cm because of Jaa not standing at his best but throughout I saw 5 inches in the clip..

So I can't see him under 5'11" anymore. It makes sense as he can sometimes look near guys who are 6'1" because of having an inch or more footwear advantage.

@Simon James interesting, but I don't think he's below 180cm.

This guy has one of the worst little man complexes in Hollywood. You don’t have to be a genius to see how extreme his lifts are. In long pants his knees are either 2/3rds of the way up his legs, or he’s adding about 3-4 inches in lifts. No one is that insecure about their height unless they are way shorter than advertised. And no guy who is 5’11” is wearing lifts that ridiculous. Vin looks utterly preposterous in about every photo he takes, because he’s so desperate to be seen as taller. He’s 5’9”, and I know this for as close to fact as you can get. I was in NYC a couple of years ago and we were in the same restaurant. I am 6’0” barefoot, and that day was in espadrilles - so no added height - Vin was wearing his customary gigantic boots, and we were the same height, if I’m being generous. I was probably a shade taller in truth. Without the boots, he’s losing 2-3 inches minimum. And that’s being kind. The things have huge soles, and obviously elevators inside. The man is 5’9”.

His wife is 5-9 barefoot. He’s an inch max taller barefoot. Johnathan Ross even pulled him up on his bogus height claim and he got defensive
Jamie said on 13/May/19
Ratman - Fast 8 he was listed as 6’1”

He’s an inch taller than his wife barefoot. Make what you will be his absolutely not 5-11.5 barefoot. 100% definitely not. Rob needs to re investigate his claim.

--------------

Any pics Jimbo? His wife is listed elsewhere by her agency as 5'10".
Ratman said on 11/May/19
He is 5'9 because in fast five when the whole team got caught, his height was listed at 5'9 and Paul's was 6'2, so that's that, leave the man alone and let him do what he wants

Some forget that even when wearing a normal shoe like Nike Shox he could have another inch or more in lifts inside.

From all I've seen for years, I don't think I'll give Vin a flat 5'11". However, I often see the argument that 5'11.25" could be the perfect listing for Vin. Rob, how likely is 181 cm for him?
Johan 185 cm said on 30/Apr/19
He did look 5'11" with Tony Jaa barefoot so 180-181cm is reliable. I don't see him as low as 5'10" range.
Terry said on 27/Apr/19
He looks similar in height to Daniel Craig.
John wilson s. said on 25/Apr/19
If he is 1.81, then I am 1.81 too, but I aint
I am 1.79

Seriously. He might be 1.80 but only immediately after bed
Logan M Barringer said on 21/Apr/19
@ 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

@J-Dog, LMAO! Lol am sure Vin won't like to take off those. ...

Here is a picture of Vin Diesel's current lifts.

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.

Paul NS (6ft 0.5) said on 23/Feb/19
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.
berta said on 6/Feb/19
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
ROB look at this content://media/external/file/82671 Vin is the P👢rince of elevator shoe wearers .I still don't know why you hawe him at 181.5, he is 178 barefoot .
Editor Rob
You would need to upload an image to something like imgur.com or find the site that it's already on to link to...as there's no upload facility on this site.
Averageman from Crapton said on 5/Jan/19
5'11 flat seems like a safe bet for him.
Bang said on 2/Jan/19
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?
