    It's more for Fashion & Beauty, I know, but I wanted to post it as anon - so mods please either keep it here or move to F&B but keep as anon, or delete. Thanks.

    I'm a male and have just found about "elevator shoes". Thinking about getting some, as I am quite short by the Western standards - 5 feet 5 inches (165 cm). These could make me a bit taller and most likely more comfortable around girls. The examples of the shoes can be found at

    and you can read about them at

    I was just thinking - if I were to get shoes that would give me 5 additional inches, wouldn't it look weird considering I'm 5 feet 5 originally? :confused:
    I'm concerned a bit and afraid I might look dumb because of the lack of proper proportions - 178cm is quite a lot, and I'd still have my original hands, arms as such that might make me look... Bizarre? :lolwut:

    What do you think?

    when they say 5 additional inches, you actually don't really get that because of the angle. Have tried walk in women's high heels? its is quite uncomfortable, and the height you actually gain is less than the perpendicular height of the heel.
