High Heel Boots (1.5 - 2.5 inches)

I've been looking around for some boots that would boost my height a little. I've looked in a few places but I've only had a bit of luck and I'm more in the market for something black. Does anyone have any suggestions for boots with heels about the length that I've posted (anywhere from 1.5 - 3 inches or so)? About all I've found to my liking are these Energie boots on ssense http://www.ssense.com/Energie-Men-Ca...rown_Boot/8321 and while I'm not crazy about the buckle placement it doesn't turn me off of them either, especially for the price.

Any suggestions?

I'd suggest you become comfortable with your current height and desist from searching for obnoxiously large heels (3 inches, seriously?). For a boot with a higher, but still normal, heel look into Frye's. I know I've seen a few that would fit that category.

Yeah I'm not so sure about three inches but anywhere from 1.5 to 2 inches would be fine. Looks like Frye's has some good stuff, thanks. I'm 5' 10" so my height isn't a big issue but it DOES feel nice with the extra inch or so, ha ha.

Become comfortable with who you are... Clothes won't fill that void and you'll be a better man at the end of your journey.


Plus, 3 inch boots on men should only be reserved for those decked out in KISS costumes.

Logger boots in general have high heels...Chippewa, Red Wing, Whites.

sucks for me thats tall, and dont want to be taller. The heel (1-1,5) of my lace to toe Red Wing loggers have almost made me not wear them, since I feel my proportions look freakish.

I'm sorry but you can't compare those boots to White's.

5'10" and you're insecure about your height?

There are plenty of people shorter than you and you'd better believe that heel is conspicuous to the point that it should offset any confidence boost you get with the height. I have a pair of snakeskin ankle boots with pitched 1.5" heel that I wear for fun (not ironically, just when I'm feeling it, brahs) and people definitely notice.

high boots make me think of KISS.
