    Oh come on. Really?! I know this is Style Forum and all, but really?! I understand drivers for comfort while driving, but shoes specifically for riding in elevators? Really?!

    I'm 6 foot 2 so no, but I saw a very short portly fellow at the airport last week wearing them. He was still a short fat bugger at the end of the day and the extra inch or so he was gaining didn't make one bit of difference, apart from telling me he has a complex about his height.

    A small story. I was at my friends office waiting for him to have lunch together. My friend is 5’01” . So he came back to his desk. And took his shoes straight off. And started complaining how he purchased the elevator shoes from the internet for $160 and how uncomfortable those shoes were . That was the first day he was wearing them . 5 minutes later his assistant come to his desk asking for his help (my friend owns the business) ; She was wearing running shoes . My friend asked her how come she turned in to runners in the office ? She said she also has her heels on her bag which she will put on if it’s a must . And complained how uncomfortable the heels are and made this statement “ You have no idea how painful it is to wear and walk on heels “ .
    At this stage me and my friend bust in laughing. She had no clue as to why we started laughing and gave us a strange look and left.
    Well my friend did buy a pair of new shoes that day after launch and we played soccer with the “elevator” shoes , before it went to the rubbish bin.
    And yes they look wired when you wear them. And running to catch a train or bus on these shoes won’t be a good idea either.

    *** I forgot to mention his shoes were designed to make you 4 inches taller***

    No. I'm 5'6" and have simply come to terms with it. I wear shoes that I like, and leave it at that. Having a complex about your height just isn't healthy.

    Pretty sure that this thread is not at all targeted to your kind.

    At light of 5' 6", I've been somewhat vertically challenged all my life. Would never buy lift shoes. I'm quite comfortable where I am. If someone else has a problem with it -- fuck-em.
