    Chelsea boots with cuban heels are a respectable option.

    You'll find elevator shoes commonly worn by floor traders, of all sizes, at the various financial exchanges; where it pays to be seen.

    Just thinking outside the box... [​IMG] Get a bespoke Swedish upper garment made to conceal the neck rings, Svenn, and no one will be the wiser. [​IMG] I'd guess this could take a few years or so but you sound young so there's plenty of time.

    Those boots Tom Cruise are wearing don't look normal to me. First thing I noticed was the awkward standing-on-toes posture he has in that photo, like he was wearing high heels.
    I can see that, though I think if his jeans were longer it would be undetectable. Who knows how many inches of height he has there, I guess someone could look up his and that woman's to get a rough guess... but hopefully it's significantly more than the 1 inch or so i'm looking for.

    I hate to dampen your spirits cgardel, especially because you're having so much fun on this thread, but those hill tribe woman actually have just pushed down their collar bones rather than actually elongate the neck (it's a common misconception, don't worry). Anyway, please carry on...

    Tom Cruise's shoes are also skilfully shaped to hide well under his trouser hems without having a clumsy break. Perhaps there is untapped potential in extending the length of your pants.

    gcardell, OP asks a question and if you can't answer it then STFU. Posting humorless pics can be annoying the third or fourth time around.

    To the OP, have you thought of going bespoke? I can't imagine it being too difficult to sneak in a few cm's at Lobb's or Beluti's if you can engineer the shoes from scratch. Personally, I think you have a solid height. Any taller, you won't be able to help old ladies crossing the street.

    posted in December by the original poster...
    i went to a physical therapist about my lordosis and they said strengthening the stomach and stretching the hip flexors was the way to minimize it. I did just that and didn't notice anything. I think the popular conception of how straight the lower back should curve is unrealistic- nearly all the aboriginal tribespeople you see on tv have a very pronounced lordosis... I think it's the sign of a strong lower back/gluteul muscles.
    Lordosis (Wikipedia) I hope your doctor has given you permission to wear the funny shoes because wearing those things with your medical condition without oversight sounds pretty fucking stupid to me. How about asking a specialist about appropriate shoes and requirements for your condition?

    Hi,
    I bought height increasing shoes on the website http://www.bertulli-shoes.co.uk/. I ordered shirts, pants and a jacket. Modern style, cheap price, I like it!
    N.P
