    I don't know, dude. He's also asking about suits and other wardrobe stuff in other threads - where he posts links to AE shoes, Brooks Brothers and Hugo Boss suits, etc. Good luck with your spam hunt.

    Thank you... I mean elevator shoes from Thailand, that to me comes under the same category as Canadian pharmacies, offshore Viagra and penis enlargement pills.

    Hi guys - To calm down any suspicions of spam sensitive and troll sensitive people, I have absolutely no affiliation with Don's Footwear.

    My lessons learned are 1) never post a url and 2) never post a url where you may say something positive / say something about how they market it on the website

    As I have no affiliation with Don's - I just want to say to NEVER buy shoes from them because nobody should where elevator shoes based on the responses on this forum.

    Cheers



    I will not be pursuing elevator shoes, and will build my entire shoe collection on AE. Thanks for the input.​

    If you are real pretty already maybe you could go for gender reassignment therapy and then wear 6 inch stilletos.

    Don't do it, I'm a lot shorter than you, and I am usually at the top level in the room at this point in my career. Be confident with who you are, wigs, elevator shoes, swing your hair are seen as weaknesses

    I am 6'-0" in height and always wanted to be between 5-'2" to 5'-6". I am serious. The benefits of being in a comparatively smaller body outweigh the disadvantages.
    Examples: 1) Live longer than tall people. 2) Lightweight build has more agility. 3) Look younger longer and as a result, get to date younger women longer without having to be rich. Smaller guys may have a rough time in childhood to asolecense but things do even out in adulthood. What is not to like about being on the smaller side?

    Out of curiosity, how definitive is the science on point 1, and where are you coming from on point 3?

    You didn't mention a major advantage of being tall: more attractive to girls.

    Really? "'studies after studies"? Sounds like bunkum to me. Do any of these "studies" have any scientific, academic, or statistical validity? I'd be curious how many actually valid "studies" you've consulted. You're of average height. I would think being comfortable with your own self would be of far greater value that worrying that someone is taller than you are. It's something you can do for yourself, at no cost, and you'll never have to make embarassing explanations when a girlfriend or colleague notices the lifts in your shoes.

    No science necessary. Ever hear the terms, 'Little old man' and 'Little old lady' ? Now, ever hear the term 'Big old man' or Big old lady'?


    Some women prefer taller men while others prefer smaller men. For this you must take a poll in a womens forum. Some women may find a taller man intimidating. Behaviour will have a larger role in attracting a woman then height will. Wouldn't you agree?

    Tell that to Jack Welch. Instead of creating a perception of being a good leader why don't you produce, work hard and lead by example.
    You have a confidence issue, not a height issue.
