Why Men May Want Tall Shoes

Why Men May Want Tall Shoes

You will find yourself surprised if you know the number of men who are not as tall as they make themselves seem to be. Most of us do it subconsciously, anyways.

A lot of fashion advice tell shorter men they need to get tall shoes in order to appear taller. Ever told a friend not to wear something because it makes him or her look short? That’s specifically what I mean.

Besides Shoes, Men Can Improve Their Posture

Let’s have a look at your posture. Improving your posture can increase your height the moment you apply it. If you can do so now, stand in front of a mirror and try it out. First, stand up with a slouched back. Then, improve your posture where you hold your chin high and your chest pushed forward a bit. You see yourself gaining some height. Moreover, people with a high position look proud, which makes them look taller, as well. Sometimes, you may see a man walking around like he owns a place, even though it’s obvious he doesn’t.


Why Do Men Wish They Were Taller?

Most men even of average height wish they were taller by a few inches. Why? Well, the reason is, height has been merge with authority and power since ancient times and our brains are meant to look up to people who are taller than us. A short stature man may feel insecure and less likely to do well in life when compared to tall men. With women things are a bit different and short women can quickly gain a few inches by using high heeled shoes.

So, what are the options for men? There is a way for men to increase height and with it the confidence to face the world: platform and elevator shoes.

Elevator Shoes

Height increasing shoes look like the normal shoes you wear every day when viewed on the exterior.


Height increasing shoes are important in that they make the wearer look taller quickly and more efficiently. These shoes are especially made to enhance the height of the wearers (without it being obvious) and at the same time make them feel happy.

Platform Versus Elevator Shoes

Platform shoes have gone out of fashion and today, instead of increasing the confidence of the wearers, it may make some feel contempt and scorn. Elevator shoes are more like ordinary dress shoes compared to these; the only difference is that they were produced with inbuilt shoe lifts. These shoe lifts create an image that you are taller by almost 3 inches without any noticeable difference on the outside.

The shoe lifts may shift in the shoe or may be fixed permanently in the shoe. But, a shoe with an inbuilt shoe lift is more comfortable and preferred by most.


Platform shoes have an outer sole that is 1 – 5 inches high, but elevator shoes come with in-built soles that can make your height increase from 1 inch to almost 4 inches.

Furthermore elevator shoes are produced from the finest of leather and are available in the latest styles and designs. The insole itself is made of a sturdy shock absorbent material and is as comfortable as a regular insole. The shoe is similar to any other walking shoe on the outside.

That said, do some research to truly see which type of shoe is best for you. These shoes make it possible to stop envying taller guys and, instead, check out a pair of height increasing shoes.


While there are little tricks to look perhaps an inch taller at most, height shoes will provide the most height the fastest way.

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.


Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.


So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.


2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.


4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
