    Looks like these could give you an extra inch or 2 in height. Why is the heel so high?

    These are Gucci, btw

    Are you sure you didn't unkowingly post this photo from their womens section? There are, or at least used to be several models of Gucci loafers that are near identical for men and women. In the photo you have posted, the loafers look gender neutral. They don't appear to be too high to my eyes. Perhaps it is just the camera angle or lighting used that presented a concern.

    They do appear a tad high but I see no concern. Many gents will quickly embrace these.

    Not sure if it is relation or coincidence, but many of the Tom Ford shoes I have seen have had a slightly higher than standard heel.

    I have these shoes and they are not as high as you may think they are. They kind of remind me of the vintage 'cuban' heels from years ago (but not as high). They're super comfortable and classics - get them!
