Style Choices & Elevator Shoes Part 4 – Your Lifestyle

tall shoes for men, elevator shoes, bespoke height increasing shoes

Try and picture, in your mind, a conservative banker wearing 5 inch boots to work. That's a mismatch, isn't it? Such boots might be perfect for a rock star, on stage, but definitely a major gaffe in the boardroom of a bank. While this is an extreme example of a lifestyle clash, it does point out the need for tailoring your look to how you live, and how you want to be living in the future.

mens high heel shoes

Many men who want to increase their height are motivated by a desire to elevate their stature in their career, or in the realm of romance. Face it, the purpose of elevator shoes is not just to make one taller: it's to help one rise up in life. That's why your lifestyle will help you choose just the right style of tall shoes for men that will help you get to where you want to go. The last thing you want to do is defeat that purpose by selecting a style or type of elevator footwear that calls attention to itself. You don't want your shoes to 'wear you'.

While you may think you need the maximum amount of lift for your height, it may be that a proper style choice (and a bit less lift) will increase your apparent stature more than just getting an extra 4-5 inches of absolute height. For one thing, maximal lift can be hard to handle. It's more difficult to stay surefooted when you have more lift than you can manage, which will call attention to your attempt to increase your height. Perhaps the best way to get exactly the right amount of lift, along with a proper style match, is to speak to someone who can guide you along the path to selecting the perfect style for you.

Style Choices & Elevator Shoes Part 3 – Your Need for Height Increase

tall shoes for men, elevator shoes, height increasing shoes

Every man (and woman) who is 'vertically challenged' has a unique perspective on his or her condition. For some, being at the low end of the height curve is no problem. In fact, it may be part of their appeal. Actor Warwick Davis has made a very successful, public career, despite being 3' 6” (106.7 cm). In his case, he has no need for 'height increase'. Wearing tall man shoes would be counterproductive.

Obviously, not everyone can take the 'if you can't fix it, feature it' path in life. Most folks who are less tall than they want to be adapt to their situation (consciously or unconsciously). Some even go to the trouble of relocating, surrounding themselves with people who are of short stature, like in the Philippines. For those who don't fancy going to extremes, elevator shoes can help, along with the proper fashion choices that accentuate a vertical line.

What you do in life can also determine whether or not your stature is an obstacle. American basketball players are often noted for being exceptionally tall. Nevertheless, there have been NBA professionals as short as 5'3”. However, being the exception may not fit with your personality type. In that case, adding to your height with shoes that increase it will be the way to go. The key is to find the right shoes that fit, not only your desire to stand taller, but don't call attention to themselves for the wrong reasons. Cheap 'lift shoes' don't do the job. Elegant, handmade footwear with a discreet lift incorporated into the design of the shoe itself will do the job perfectly. I leave it to you to decide which path is best for you: feature it, or fix it.

Style Choices and Elevator Shoes, Part 2: Your Personality

handmade elevator shoes, height increasing shoes, tall shoes for confidence

Those who stand tall in their bare feet generally have a laid-back persona. Those who don't generally develop a fireproof confidence and, sometimes, a “deplorable excess of personality”. The trick for the vertically challenged, who do all they can to increase their height, is to tailor their behavior to match who they wish to be with who they are now.

tall men shoes

One example of a person with a truly 'forward' personality, who happens to be short, is comedian Jon Stewart. True, his on-screen persona is an act. However, many aspects of his outgoing, high energy behavior are the result of growing up (and stopping unexpectedly) in a competitive environment in New Jersey, which is not known for producing shy, retiring types. You will have to consider the local norms of behavior in your environment, if you are contemplating a change in how you present yourself to the world. What works in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, may not pass muster in Fargo, North Dakota.

The main consideration, if you are trying to match your presentation to your new height, is what actually works for you. The last thing you might want to do is imitate someone you admire, but is a total mismatch for who you are, inside. This also includes what you wear. Again, a mismatch here could mean that your clothes will be wearing you, so to speak. Think about the times you have seen someone and said to yourself, “That person's a wannabe – trying to be someone he is not”. Make sure your choices in clothing, behavior, etc., aren't too far away from who you are, underneath.

Bespoke, Made-to-Order Elevator Shoes

bespoke elevator shoes, made-to-order tall shoes, height increasing shoes

The latest 'fad' is handmade. Artisanal pickles, small batch wineries, hand bound books – it's all part of a trend in getting back to basics. The thing is, this is no trendy thing for some craftsmen. The cordwainer is an artisan who crafts bespoke footwear for the discerning client. They've been around for hundreds of years. They aren't starting a trend. They're continuing custom work that dates back to the Renaissance.

mens shoes with heels

What's new in the field is height increasing shoes, crafted for the individual. For the most part, 'tall shoes' are mass produced basic styles, with lifts stuck inside as an afterthought. They represent a simple, economic decision: deliver the most, to the most people. Well, 'most people' aren't discerning, with an eye towards luxury, comfort, and discretion. For those few who can appreciate the best, sweatshop stuff isn't their preference.

Enter the specialized cordwainer. This artisan can craft footwear that looks elegant, is made from top quality leather, and incorporates a discreet lift for the wearer that is tailored to that wearer's actual needs. Instead of taking pre-made shoes and putting questionable lifts inside, these craftsmen use 21st Century lift technology as the foundation for a shoe, boot, sneaker, loafer, or even a sandal, that can become the exact fit the intended wearer needs.

If you are such a discerning person, it's time to reach out to the one source of such bespoke elevator footwear. Perhaps you need more lift on one side than the other. You could possibly prefer a given style in an exotic leather upper. You might also require a very soft fit, to accommodate your sensitive feet. It's time to pick up the phone and call the source that will happily craft your footwear to your exacting specifications.

Style Choices and Elevator Shoes, Part 1: Your Build

bespoke elevator shoes, stylish height increasing shoes, tall shoes

“Clothes make the man.” The same can be said about his footwear, especially if he's 'vertically challenged'. The real challenge is matching the wardrobe to the figure. A very slim man can appear taller than he actually is by virtue of his slimness. A heavyset man can appear shorter than he is, simply because his rounded figure distracts from his actual height. Actor Oliver Platt stands 6'4”, but can appear to be shorter, unless he's standing next to someone much shorter than himself.

elevator shoes summer 2015

Your build (and fashion choices) will determine how tall you appear to be. If you haven't thought about this before, it may be unfamiliar territory for you. When you look at yourself in the mirror, it may be hard for you to see the total view of your appearance. A man with a basically slender frame, even if he has a few extra pounds around the middle, will not need the amount of 'height enhancement' that a truly portly man will.

Serious elevator footwear will increase your height, but you may need less lift if you're rail thin. On the other hand, if you have a beefy build, you may need to adjust your fashion choices to enhance your height vs. width. For men with this challenge, going with a monochrome (one color) look will help. So will avoiding horizontal stripes and high waisted pants. The idea is to de-emphasize your girth in favor of your height.

As you continue to think about what will work best for you, keep in mind that your attitude and confidence will increase your stature in a way that no ruler or measure will capture. Having fireproof confidence can make you seem like a giant, even if you have to look up at others to make eye contact. It's all in the mind, your own and the minds of others.

Elevator shoes for all occasions Part 5 – Boots

tall boots, elevator boots, bespoke boots, height increasing boots

Boots have been one of the best ways to increase the height of the wearer for centuries. Most boots were originally made for horseback riding, and have a heel that is designed to work with a stirrup. Of course, those who could use a bit of height increase found that their boots supplied a boost to their stature.

Fast forward to today. Boots are a part of most casual wardrobe choices, and can even be found in some business dress environments. Boots and jeans are required for the cowboy look. Best of all, boots now can be everything, from plain, conservative, full grain leather to wild, color accented combinations of calfskin leather/suede/patent leather and other materials. Add to that the new collection of 5 inches boots, for those who wish to stand as tall as possible, and you have a wealth of choices in boot styles, lift, and colors/finishes.

The benefits don't stop here, either. For the luxury consumer, the ability to get their boots customized is a priceless benefit. Nowhere else can one get personalized height increasing footwear that reflects exactly what is desired in fit, finish, individualized lift, and a host of other modifications that can be custom ordered and delivered. If the only barrier to getting elevator shoes is a need for special services, that barrier is now removed.

The most obvious benefit to such footwear is its discretion. Since boots are a part of mainstream fashion, there's no need to worry about getting a bit of extra height increase from 21st Century lift technology that is comfortable, secure, and discreet. No one will suspect that your boots have more than just a taller heel to increase your height. That's because GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes are made, from the ground up, to be elegant, discreet, and fashionable.

Elevator shoes for all occasions Part 4 – Sneakers

One of the first places those in the know go for a bit of height increase is sneakers. That's because certain brands of popular 'trainers' have a built-up sole that can add up to 3 inches to the wearer's height. However, they're not exactly discreet. You can see the extra lift, from the outside appearance of the shoe's construction.

How great would it be to get comfortable, well-fitting sneakers that increase your height discreetly? It'd be really great, if they're good looking, have a proper fit, and don't obviously seem like 'tall sneakers'. Well, the time has come. Thanks to superior lift technology, an eye to fashion, and handmade attention to detail, you can enjoy all those benefits and more! Plus, these elevator sneakers are customizable, with up to 4 inches of lift by request.

In other words, these are bespoke sneakers, not just mass produced from a fixed style.

You can call and discuss your particular needs with the top man who can deliver your footwear with your exacting needs in mind. Try that with a major brand of sneakers, and see how far you get!

Elevator shoes for all occasions Part 3: Loafers

elevator loafers, tall loafers, height increasing loafers

There's one style of shoes that hasn't, up until now, gotten a 'lift', so to speak: Loafers. That's because most manufacturers of lift shoes found it hard-to-impossible to make a pair of loafers that would stay on your feet with lifts stuffed inside. They were uncomfortable at best and fell apart, at worst. The reason: these cheap lift shoes were just regular loafers with lifts added after the fact.

GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes decided to tackle this challenge from the ground up. Beginning with custom made forms (called 'lasts') that create a shoe shape that includes superior lift technology, these loafers do what no other loafers can – discreetly increase your height while giving you surefooted wear and lasting comfort. The success of this effort is plain to see: these are some of the best loafers available anywhere, with the discreet benefit you know you'll like.

This is an industry first. The others aren't doing this. You'll look high and low, and not find first quality leather and suede loafers that increase your height the way these shoes do. In fact, no one else is making height increasing loafers, anywhere in the World. It's a new way to stand taller, in style, with sure footed wear and comfort.

Elevator shoes for all occasions Part 2: Business Dress and Casual

dress elevator shoes, height increasing shoes for business, business casual tall shoes

One of the main reasons people seek out elevator shoes is to take their business game to the next level, physically and professionally. An increase in stature not only increases the wearer's confidence, it actually makes a difference in how others perceive that person. The influence of height in success may be an unfair advantage, but the one who seeks it is simply playing by the unspoken rules of social dominance.

That's why investing in top quality shoes that discreetly increase your height is paramount. It isn't enough to just stand taller. The shoes you wear can make or break your appearance. Superb, handcrafted, elegant footwear is the foundation of dressing for success. If those shoes happen to increase your height without calling attention to that aspect of their construction, that's the best of all possible worlds.

dress elevator shoes

GuidoMaggi Dress Shoes for business dress and casual business wear fulfill all those requirements. They are the best, made from the best leathers by hand, and incorporate 21st Century lift technology that includes a memory foam layer over hard-working, long lasting natural rubber lifts that last all day and cushion your feet like no other. Imagine that:

  • All day comfort

  • Discreet height increase

  • Handmade elegance

  • Premium leather

  • Lasting performance

As that awareness sinks in, that you can finally get what you want, it's a relief. Now, you can be the one that took control of another part of your plan for success. You can give yourself an edge, and do it in comfort and style. You can elevate more than your stature – you can increase your confidence with ease.

Let GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes supply you with that advantage. Whether it's conservative Oxfords, or cutting edge colors and styles, these dress shoes are for you.

Elevator Shoes for All Occasions, Part 1: Formal Wear

If you're in the market for shoes that make you stand taller, you may have found that the biggest sellers all have the same problem – they look cheap. There is no way you could make these shoes fit in with a wardrobe that is anything better than undistinguished. That's because these mass produced 'lift shoes' are just regular shoes with lifts stuffed inside, and are selected according to whatever part of a line of discount shoes will probably sell as elevator shoes.

Now, turn that around. Imagine a dedicated, fashionable man decided to do more than increase his own height. He went out and created a complete line of handcrafted, luxurious shoes that incorporated the best of 21st Century technology for increasing the height of the wearer comfortably, securely, and discreetly. That was the start of GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes.

formal elevator shoes

One of the earliest needs that GuidoMaggi fulfilled was in the area of formal wear, especially for bridegrooms. Tuxedo and Bridegroom Shoes may not be a large part of the footwear market, but for those men who want to stand tall next to a lovely woman in high heels, it's a burning need! These men need to feel the confidence that a well-made shoe, with superior lift technology inside, will deliver. Plus, no one will suspect that elegant, patent leather shoes with sewn-at-sight detailing are also height increasing shoes.

If you are a bridegroom-to-be, or have a formal occasion that will require your attendance, you already know you need the best shoes to go with your tuxedo. Now, you can enhance your appearance with the only elegant, discreet, handmade shoes in the World that also make you stand taller. Flattering your wardrobe and increasing your stature, discreetly.

Why You Need These Elevator Shoes, Part 4: More Confidence

tall shoes, elevator shoes, height increasing shoes

Standing taller, with good posture, in comfort, means you now have what you wanted all along: more confidence. Elevator shoes can give you all of that. That doesn't mean you'll actually get all those benefits from just sticking lifts in your present shoes, or buying cheaply made (and cheap-looking) 'lift shoes'. You have to invest in the best.

Superb elevator shoes give a benefit that cannot be faked – quality. Footwear made from the finest leathers, handcrafted by artisans who know their business, delivers the one thing cheap elevator shoes never will: discreet height increase. If you suddenly look taller, folks might check out your shoes, to see if you're wearing 'high heels', or the telltale signs of awkward shoes that don't fit with your wardrobe. If they don't see those signals, they'll soon admire your stature without question.

bespoke elevator shoes - guidomaggi luxury shoes

That's the real benefit of GuidoMaggi Luxury Elevator Shoes. They are so flattering, so elegant, so discreet, that you don't have to worry about looking like you're trying to be something you're not. First quality height increasing footwear calls attention to itself, but the hidden benefit of height increase does not. That's because no one will suspect that luxurious shoes are made to do what these shoes do.

Surprisingly, even those who are already tall love GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes. They're so well made, and look so elegant, that they are worn by fashion models, style aficionados, fashionistas, and celebrities who already stand tall.

If you want to get ahead in business, with confidence, there's an easy choice for you to make. Just have a look at the Dress Shoes by GuidoMaggi. From there, you can expand your horizons to wherever life takes you. All you have to do is choose the right footwear for your needs and wants. That's GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes.

Why You Need These Elevator Shoes, Part 3: Foot Comfort

comfortable elevator shoes, comfy height increasing shoes, tall shoes for comfort

You may have already felt the pain of wearing cheap elevator shoes. Those shoes were actually regular shoes with 'lifts' inserted as an afterthought. As a result, the top of your foot was pushed up against the upper, causing discomfort. After a short while, the lifts collapsed, and your 'height increase' went from inches to millimeters.

Those aren't the only sources of discomfort from badly made height increasing shoes, but there's no point in describing all of them. You know you want to increase your stature, but don't want to hurt your feet in the process. Here's the solution: get elevator shoes that are made, from the ground up, to be comfortable to wear, that cushion your feet, and keep you standing tall for as long as you own them.

casual elevator shoes

That's the GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes difference. From the very start, these shoes are created to provide a comfortable, discreet lift for the wearer that doesn't quit. The actual structure of the footwear is built around 21st Century lift technology, and is presented in a handmade, luxury creation that meets the demands of the most discerning fashionista (or corporate dress code).

The most recent enhancement to the GuidoMaggi experience is the addition of a 'memory foam' layer, above the natural rubber lift. This means your footwear becomes a perfect fit for each of your feet, in a way that no other footwear can. At the same time, the elegance and style of each pair of shoes, boots, and sneakers provides another source of comfort: enhancing your appearance.

If you've been waiting to buy the right elevator shoes, your wait is over. You will get the comfort, style, increase in stature, and long-lasting wear that only handcrafted Italian footwear can provide. GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes – the elevation of tall shoes into superb appearance and performance.

Why You Need These Elevator Shoes, Part 2: Improved Posture

deluxe elevator shoes, fashionable height increasing shoes, tall stature shoes

Height increasing shoes do their best work when the wearer stands with good posture. Unfortunately, for many users, the shoes they picked don't help. The lifts inside can cause discomfort, or even collapse altogether, over time. The desired elevation doesn't do the job.

Thankfully, GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes are made, from the ground up, to be long-lasting, comfortable, and help the wearer stand up with good posture. That's because the high-tech lifts are designed to make standing up straight, with the weight of the wearer moved forward, a natural result of wearing them.

shoes for short men

In fact, while they are not orthopedic or orthotic, they do deliver a solid benefit to the wearer. The recent addition of a 'memory foam' layer over the lift technology gives the wearer a solid, continuous connection to the foundation of the shoe that spreads the weight of the body more evenly over the insole. Plus, the natural rubber lifts maintain their height increase over time, rather than gradually collapsing from the weight of the wearer, as happens with cheaper, synthetic lift inserts.

Best of all, these elevator shoes are made with discreet height increase in mind. That is, they're not just regular shoes with lifts stuffed inside. They are built around the lift, so that the proper fit, finish, and look of the shoes is in harmony with the wearer. By using top quality leather and other deluxe materials, these shoes are made to look great and last a long time, while giving the owner both improved stature and an elegant appearance.

From basic, conservative dress shoes for business to the latest, cutting edge fashion, GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes deliver more than just an increase in height. They are the best way possible to increase your stature and improve your posture. That's the best of many Worlds!

Why You Need These Elevator Shoes, Part 1: Discreet Height Increase

elevator shoes, height increasing shoes, tall shoes, luxury shoes

You want to increase your stature. What's the right way to do that? Discreetly, of course. You wouldn't want to walk around with a box to stand on, or wear platform shoes, if you're trying to be discreet about standing taller. So, how to choose the right elevator shoes?

The answer is simple: buy quality. There are literally tons of cheaply made (and cheap-looking) 'tall shoes' out there. Most are simply regular shoes with height increasing lifts inserted into them. They are uncomfortable, bad for your feet, and fall apart (or the lifts collapse) after just a few months of wear. That's because they weren't designed and handmade, from the ground up, to be superior height increasing shoes.

taller shoes

Even if they don't ruin your feet or fall apart after three months, these mass-produced commodities have the fatal flaw of being 'downscale': made to attract those who want cheap prices. The last thing the makers of these shoes want is to have their footwear price itself out of the bottom rung of the market. Therefore, the very idea of designing and handcrafting superb footwear is not in their plan.

Contrast that with GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes. From the ground up, these shoes are planned, designed, and finished with an eye to delivering the best made shoes in the World. Plus, they incorporate 21st Century lift technology that is designed for comfort, all day wear, and long life. Most importantly, they don't look like 'lift shoes'. They look like what they are: Italian-made footwear that is fashionable, luxurious, and increases height in a totally discreet way.

Your choice is simple. Either go cheap, and pay the consequences later, or go luxe, and reap immediate and long-term rewards. Put that way, there's really no choice at all, is there? Buy a pair of GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes – or buy more, if you already have some.

Elevator Shoes for Work, Part 4: Setting Priorities for Your Look

dress elevator shoes, height increasing shoes, business casual tall shoes

One size doesn't fit all, when it comes to deciding what footwear is most appropriate for your work situation. How strict (or how lax) the dress code is at your place of business is for you to know and follow. Having said that, in most cases, the actual style, color, etc., won't be spelled out for you.

That's where your priorities help you decide what will ultimately be the best choice for your situation, and upward progress. If it is your intention to become a senior partner at a very conservative law firm, there's very little room for you to maneuver away from the style choices of the existing senior partners. On the other hand, if you are working for a high-tech startup, footwear will be determined by your position and work: outside sales staff won't be encouraged to wear sneakers or brightly colored loafers, while in-house field engineers could very well be wearing steel-toed boots.

mens elevator shoes

You also need to be forward-looking. Where do you want to end up? If you're a sneaker-clad customer service rep, who wants to be a supervisor/manager, you might want to lose the sneakers. Make yourself ready to be promoted in advance, in a moment's notice. Let your entire look represent where you want to be, even if where you are is not anything like how you will be working, dressing, participating, etc.

In other words, choose your footwear to reflect where you are going. If you go on a hike, you don't wear formal patent leather shoes. If you go to a board meeting of a major corporation, you don't wear sneakers (unless you're the chairman of the board). By making your path ahead the priority, you'll find it easier to choose the right footwear for now, and for the future.

Elevator Shoes for Work, Part 3: Business Casual

casual elevator shoe, informal height increasing shoes, business casual tall shoes

For those of you that have the opportunity to 'dress down' at work, whether it's Casual Friday, or Business Casual is the rule, you have a lot of latitude in your choice of shoes to wear. In fact, it may be that strictly formal footwear may be a poor choice to wear, if your clothes are less than conservative.

First of all, there are some styles of footwear that are too casual for Business Casual. Generally speaking, sneakers, loud colors, 'street grunge' boots, and the like, are often the wrong choice. There's a limit to what will pass for Casual, when you're trying to be businesslike. Take you cue from your environment and try to match, rather than challenge, the norm your colleagues have set.

shoes for short men

It's usually acceptable to add color accents beyond the basic black and brown, as long as they're not too loud or jarring. Conservative styles in seasonal colors are a good choice. Also, suede leather can soften the look of basic styles in a way that does not offend.

Loafers can be another way to 'dress down' without being too far from the rules for good taste. Some styles of boots and ankle boots will also work well in this environment. The key here is to match the look of the footwear to the rest of the wardrobe. The idea is to enhance the look without calling attention to your feet. After all, if you're looking for discreet height increase, the last place you want others to be looking is at your feet.

In order to make your business appearance the most effective, you have to harmonize with your environment. Your look is not the way to stand out. Your performance, personality, ambition, and drive should be the thing others notice the most about you, not your footwear.

Elevator Shoes for Work, Part 2: Optional Styles

When it comes to business dress, it's the tiny details that make the difference. Just because you want a pair of elevator shoes, that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the proper appearance for your corporate culture. The Devil is in the details, and here are some details that will help you make the correct choice for your situation.

The construction of the shoe itself is an often misunderstood element that does make a difference. For example, an Oxford style shoe is not the same as a Derby (or Blucher). The Oxford's facing (the part where the laces are threaded) is part of the vamp, or front part of the shoe. The Derby/Blucher facing is sewn atop the vamp, which can allow a wider opening for your foot. In a very strict corporate environment, a Blucher could be a fashion faux pas. In most cases, however, this tiny detail will go unnoticed.

worker elevator shoes

It is up to you to observe and research the culture to which you aspire to join. It's not enough to guess, if you're targeting a very competitive niche. Once you've done your groundwork, you'll be able to make informed choices as to the right shoes (and the right amount of lift) for your situation.

You may also have some flexibility regarding accents or other additions to the plain look. A toe cap style can be conservative, but not boring, whether it is an Oxford or Blucher vamp. The Monk Strap shoe has been declared the most advanced dress shoe, and is considered more conservative than a Blucher style. Broguing, or decorative perforations, round out the style accents that can still make the grade in a conservative environment, and can come in several styles of vamp (Oxford, Blucher, Monk Strap, and so on).

In Part 3, you'll discover the World of Business Casual...

Elevator Shoes for Work, Part 1: Must-Have Styles

elevator shoes for work, business height increasing shoes, tall shoes for office

For some, height increasing shoes are a 'one-off': something you buy for a wedding or formal affair. For the ambitious, who wish to improve their lot in life and business, elevator shoes are a part of their arsenal of weapons for rising to the top. No matter what business you are pursuing, your footwear needs to match your environment and culture.

There's a major difference between the corporate culture of a law firm and a tech startup. In fact, at one Silicon Valley startup, there was no 'dress code'. One day, an employee showed up wearing a tie. Soon after, more employees showed up to work wearing ties. The big boss cleared up the assumption, by coming to work wearing a tie – over his T-shirt. After that, no more ties were worn.

You'll need to know the environment before you choose the right shoes. It's best if you blend in, rather than test the limits, when it comes to your wardrobe choices. For the conservative, Old-School look, a plain toed Oxford shoe is always correct. Depending upon the choices of those in charge, you can stray from that style only when it aligns with their own choices. The classic Wingtip or Brogue is one example of a style that shouldn't raise eyebrow among the elite.

As for color choice, go with the color that matches most of your dress wardrobe. For many men, black shoes are best with Black, Gray, and Navy Blue clothes. Brown goes with brown, beige, and camel-hair coloration. The easiest way to tell what works is whether the shoes 'jump out' at you, rather than blending in with the fabric of your dress-wear.

Shoes are not an afterthought. They are, literally, the foundation of your dress wardrobe. Give them the consideration they deserve, especially if you're looking to increase your height, discreetly.

Unique Footwear, Personalized and Raising Your Height

In an Age of mass produced consumer goods, isn't it nice to know that some things are still made by hand? This is especially true when it comes to fashion. Practically all the major fashion houses have a prêt-à-porter (ready-to-wear) line of merchandise that's designed and manufactured for a mass market. Yes, it's 'affordable', but it's still a compromise.

For those who want no compromise, hand crafting by expert artisans is more than just a return to the old way of making things. It's vital to those who require specific details that cannot be skipped. Almost-good-enough, for those who know, is never good enough.

Sneakers, Plimsolls, Sand Shoes, Trainers – Casual Footwear That Can Elevate!

elevator sneakers, height increasing sneakers, casual tall shoes

The idea of a 'sneaker', or rubber-soled canvas shoe, goes back to the end of the 19th Century. My, how things have changed! What was once a utilitarian sport shoe is now a cultural phenomenon, not just in hip-hop and rock 'n' roll, but in everyday wear for millions of folks who just want to be comfortable and get a bit of a lift.

That's where the new look of sneakers comes in. In the old days, sneakers were flat, 8-9mm rubber-soled shoes with a canvas upper that were for sports and physical training. Fast forward to today, and you have full leather and composite uppers mated with technologically sophisticated insoles, raised heels, and even air bladders to 'tweak' the tightness of the fit, according to the activity the wearer will be engaging in.

Everything Old (Penny Loafers) Is New Again (with a lift)!

elevator loafers, height increasing moccasins, tall penny loafers

Back in the 1950's, a particular style of loafer, which featured a diamond-shaped cutout across the upper, became a prep school fashion icon. That's because that cutout was just the right size for inserting a shiny penny, as an eye-catching accent. The 'penny loafer' was born. While they were worn with socks during school days, it became de rigueur to wear them with no socks on days off, and during the summer vacation.

Throughout the rest of the 20th Century, their popularity came and went, like the tide. Now, the moccasin style of loafer, with a minimal heel, is experiencing a resurgence. For the guy (and gal) who wants to stand taller, that can be a problem. GuidoMaggi Luxury Shoes to the rescue!

If You Can't Fix It, Feature It!

short stature, elevator shoes, look taller, height increasing shoes

For most folks that are interested in elevator shoes, their lack of stature seems to be the problem. They want to be taller, and don't want to call attention to themselves. Strangely, trying to 'hide in the herd' can actually lead to calling attention to yourself in the wrong way, if you are exceptionally 'vertically challenged'.

Here's a suggestion that might help: “If you can't fix it, feature it!” Rather than trying to blend in, be outstanding. Sure, you can do all the things that increase your height, like height increasing shoes, avoiding horizontal patterns in your clothes and the like, but that only scratches the surface. To really direct attention away from how tall you are, direct attention to yourself. Increase your impact!

short stature, elevator shoes, look taller, height increasing shoes

Here's a short list of strategies and tactics for increasing your impact:

  • Wear a hat. This not only increases your apparent height, it calls attention to you in a way that stands out from the crowd. Think for a moment: how many of your friends, family, and acquaintances wear a hat? Plus, you will direct attention away from your height increasing shoes. Be different!

  • Dress like a 'dandy', if you like. This is not for everyone, but if you have the fashion sense and necessary ego, dress to impress. Those who can pull off being a 'peacock', fashion-wise, get a lot of attention, without the downside of being downsized. Go for elevator boots with as much lift as you can get away with.

  • Cultivate an outgoing personality. Naturally, if you're a committed introvert, this won't be comfortable, at first. That's the thing – stepping outside of your comfort zone can lead to all kinds of good things, if you're willing to take the risk. Developing a 'fireproof' confidence, taking the lead in social situations, wearing height increasing shoes, and generally being the center of attention will teach you an important lesson: it's not how tall you are, but how big your impact is.

To sum up, call attention to yourself. If your impact is more important than how tall you are, you may find yourself wondering why a lack of height used to be a problem. Be outstanding!

Elevator Loafers – a Dream Come True

moccasin elevator shoes, height increasing loafers, slip on tall shoes

Until recently, the idea of slip on elevator shoes was just a dream. Because of the way shoe lifts have worked in the past, it was considered impractical to add them to a moccasin-style shoe, because they would be too unstable for the wearer to walk comfortably.

That's because most elevator shoes are just regular shoes with inserts added as an afterthought. If you have any experience with mass produced 'tall shoes', you'll know that these cheaply made shoes don't offer a comfortable fit, or last for very long. The added lift inside the shoe cramps the foot, and often collapses after a short period of time.

When Traveling, Pack Light and Be Ready for Anything

elevator shoes, height increasing shoes, travel shoes, comfortable shoes

Whenever you have to pack for a trip that's more than just overnight (or will involve a change of climate during the trip), you may face a challenge as to how much (and what) to pack.

Too often, guys will either bring the minimum and be caught unprepared for unusual weather or fashion requirements, or drag along their entire wardrobe and end up using a fraction of what they packed.

elevator shoes, height increasing shoes, travel shoes, comfortable shoes

Here's how to get the most out of the minimum:

  1. Pick a single color theme. Rather than going with a full palette of colors, go with one basic major color (like blue) and select all your other clothing to match that main color. That way, you won't be stuck with a bunch of unrelated clothing items that only go with a given outfit or clashing color.

  2. Plan on dressing in layers. This is especially important if you're going from a warm to a cold climate in the same trip. You don't have to pack all your cold weather wear – just select items that will go together and will pack flat in your luggage. If you really need major cold weather coverage, a down-filled jacket beats a fleece for warmth and will collapse down to nearly nothing.

  3. Be ready for dressing up and down. Even if you're doing a casual vacation, it will be good to have a dressy jacket and pair of pants for spontaneous events (like meeting a lovely lady you want to take to dinner). If you're traveling for business, be ready for some down time with 'knock around' clothes. Even if you're in a cold climate, you may end up in a hotel with a pool or a place with a hot tub. Pack a bathing suit!

Most importantly of all, get in the habit of thinking ahead to what you'll actually be doing, rather than trying to cover all possible scenarios. With experience, you'll learn what to leave out, and what you must never forget to bring.

Buon viaggio!
