    you put them in the sole of your shoes, and they give you an extra 1.5/2 inches of height?

    Girls mainly, what are ur thoughts on this?
    People argue its the same as women wearing makeup or wearing heels?

    What would you think of a man that is clearly feeding his insecurity and wears lifts to look taller?

    Go into as much detail as you want..

    thanks

    I think it would be viewed very negatively if people knew, but I don't think there's any logical reason for that. As you say, I don't think there's any logical distinction between shoe-lifts and makeup/pushup bra.

    If people didn't know, I wouldn't really think there'd be a problem though. If you're a short guy, then a bit of extra height would obviously help.

    Wow if you're that insecure to wear lifts that really says something about you.
    If you're quite short (eg. < 5ft 9) then fair enough otherwise, its just a joke.
    I'm 6ft 1 (Not that tall I know) and have never considered myself in need of lifts.

    Lol I assume anyone considering wearing shoe lifts would definitely be below 5ft9.

    at least heels are more visible and serve aesthetic value - so not comparable

    tight clothes aren't deceitful, just present existing features well - so not comparable to this either

    however, i dont see how its different to padded bras

    therefore

    i lament than you feel the need/desire to do so, but if you want to, go for it

    Agree about padded bras/butt pads etc but makeup/heels are a bit different IMO, because it's fairly obvious when a girl is wearing makeup or heels. Shoe lifts are hidden (like with padded bras etc) - that said, wouldn't really bother me but I'd rather the person I'm with be comfortable enough to not need shoe lifts. But we all have our insecurities, if they make you feel more confident OP then just wear them.

    Nothing wrong with it. Like you said, women wear heels and makeup, so why can't men wear heels?

    If looking 1.5 inches taller or not makes or breaks it for you with a girl then she probably isn't worth your time...
    I guess you are more hoping for general confidence assistance though in which case meh, if you want to wear it go ahead. 5'7 is pretty normal short though, nothing crazy.

    Well if you're less than 1.5 inches shorter than a girl, then for a lot of, I imagine that could very well be "make or break".

    It's surely common knowledge that most girls wouldn't want to date a guy who is shorter than her.

    I don't see why that would mean a girl "isn't worth your time". Sexual relationships are based a lot on physical attraction. :p: How's a girl judging a guy on his height any different than a guy judging a girl on her face?
