The insoles of our shoes provide support while allowing a natural instep so that your posture is not compromised. Altitude Shoes also allow you to achieve the ideal alignment of the spine (posture starts at the feet). This in turn helps to increase your height by allowing you to stand straighter and not slouch forward.
Standing taller may have the added side effect of increased confidence. See our customer Testimonials for more on this. Also note that there have been numerous academic studies which show the benefits in health, wealth and attraction of increased height (see directly below).
Career and Financial Success
Arianne Cohen, author of The Tall Book, says that tall people are 90% more likely to ascend to the CEO chairs of Fortune 500 companies.
Similarly, in the international bestselling book “Blink”, Malcolm Gladwell states that 58% of the CEO’s of Fortune 500 Companies are 6 feet or taller. 58% is over 4 times the percentage of American men that are 6 feet or taller when compared to the general population. This is an over-representation of 400%! Coincidence? No.
Other studies confirm that being taller leads to career success:

Academic studies, newspapers, journals and other highly reputable sources confirm that taller men are more attractive to women. See, for example:
- BBC Article – Are Tall Men More Attractive?
- The Innovations Report – Does Size Matter - Studies on Height and Attraction
- Academic Study on Height and Attractiveness
Wikipedia also attributes male height as being one of the main determinants of physical attractiveness: Wikipedia on Height and Physical Attractiveness.
Society has accustomed us to linking taller men with success and confidence. Taller men often get the girl, the job and the promotion among other rewards (see links above for academic and practical evidence). Consequently, being taller drives your image in this direction.
