Ever thought about wearing them?
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.
seriously? negative, i stand at 5'11, 6'0 if asked, and I am just fine.
Pretty sure that this thread is not at all targeted to your kind.
lol, hey I was just trying to contribute. but yes I believe you are right.
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.
