(Closed) Heel Height!?! How tall are yours?

@scqt13:  I actually ended up going with a different pair of shoes; my mum and sister HATED these shoes (too flashy apparently) so while I still have a major weak spot for them I felt a little deflated. I’ve ended up going with a pair of Rupert Sandersons instead. But they were very comfy when I tried them on! Just make sure you check the toes – I find that peeptoes start cutting into my toes very quickly and then it’s game over.

Lots of amazing shoes in this thread <3

My only problem is 4″ heels make me slightly taller than my partner (about 0.5″), so we had to find shoe lifts for him to not make me look like an amazon! We bought some lifts from a market but they fit a bit weird, so we’re looking at getting custom shoes to make him higher like ones on http://www.taller.com


Does anyone have any more experience with raised heels for guys?

I’m 5’4″ and Fiance is 6’5″ so I’d have to be in stilts to be taller!  I’ve got 6″ platform Louboutins for the ceremony and pictures, then after dinner I’ll change into 4″ heels for dancing.

Someone bumped this thread and I think it’s a good one, so I’m going to comment as well.

My heels are about a 5 inch heel.  When I wear them, I am just a tad bit shorter than him.  I wanted him to feel tall, so I opted out of sky high heels, these are still very tall.  We discussed it and he will be buying men’s dress shoes with a slight platform to give him the height over me he wants.  The compromise works.  He looks taller than me and I still get to wear super high heels.

Alip22:  I pay a lot of attenion to heel height myself. I buy all my shoes online so I always look up the height before I buy 🙂

I’m 5’3 and my fiance is also 5’8 (“on a good day” he says lol). Normally I wear 3″ to 3.5″ heels. I always feel taller than him when I wear heels but I can see in photos that I’m still a tad shorter. 

But for my wedding I went a little lower. I ordered custom shoes from Shoesofprey.com and chose the 2.7″ heel just so they’d be a little more comfortable since I’ll be standing in them a lot. I also ordered peep toe. Good luck!
