Any shoes which add height (by way of heel), but look discrete and fashionable?

Any shoe attempting to do this will not look all that discrete. Try a chelsea boot with a thick heel or cuban heel?

There are other tailoring tricks besides wearing heels.

or double-soled EGs! You're really not going to get much height out of any solution without it looking ridiculous though. Suck it up, shorty!

It's hard to look discrete with abnormally sized heels. I'd suggest looking into clothing that makes you appear more long and less wide.

Reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where the "little person" gets shit for wearing lifts.

I'm really hoping only for the movie, and even there, limited to scenes where you can't see his feet but he has to appear taller.

Do a search. This topic has come up a few times and there are some examples of better and worse versions. Look for Tom Cruise.

Only for the movie, Scareltt and Gwenyth are both tall girls. If they were in the scene he was wearing lifts or heels. He had bellbottoms to cover the shoes.
