TallerHeels are the world's leading providor of height increasing insoles, issueing them around the globe on a daily basis. For more information on these discreet 'secret' insoles please view our range of Height Increase Insoles


Tallness has been suggested to be associated with people who have a good cardio-vascular health and excellent longevity, although evidence in studies does seemingly contradict previous findings. It must be noted that beinfg excessively tall can create various medical issues, including those of cardiovascular nature, due to the increased load on the heart to supply the human body with blood, and issues resulting from the increased  amount of time taken for the nervous systems center  (the brain) to communicate with the extremities. For example, Mr Robert Wadlow, the tallest man on record developed walking difficulties along with with many other provblems as his height continued to increase throughout his short life. 

Epidemiological studies have also demonstrated a positive correlation between height and intelligence and evidence has shown this is why on average, taller people earn more money and are more successful in interviews. 

In addition, an individual's height has quite noticeable had a ckear link with what social clique, or group you may end up in - at any age in life, this is why many people will ask themselves - am I tall or short? In some colleges, students on the basketball team may have a higher social status than those that are not. Therefore, in some cases, this could contribute to them being classified as a member of society with lower social status  which can be detrimental to that particular individual's self-esteem.

This can also sometimes be translated over into the corporate world. Individuals with short stature can sometimes appear to not have any leadership ability or power, since some people might not take them seriously due to their short stature. This is why the global tradition to use insoles, discreetly in shoes in becoming more common to make oenself appear taller. Up to an extra 3 inches in height can be gained using this technique if carried out properly. These insoles can be adjusted for gradual height increase.

We hope this article goes someway to answering your question 'Am I Tall?'
