They come with insoles that can add up to two inches
Insecurity is a hell of a drug. At least that’s what one company is counting on with its new insoles that are capable of adding up to two inches in height to the men who wear them. Because nothing says intimacy like never taking off your shoes in front of your significant other.
This news is likely a boon for height-challenged guys everywhere, provided the people they’re dating prefer their men be tall rather than honest.
They’re called Altitude Insoles, and this video on Business Insider UK‘s Twitter feed, shows how they work.

They’re made from breathable rubber so your feet don’t get nasty, they can be easily adjusted to your size by cutting along the guidelines, and the company insists they are both comfortable and discreet. Emphasis on discreet. Because the last thing a guy insecure enough about his height to wear elevating insoles needs is to be exposed for wearing them!
The video has been viewed 180,000 times, so either there are a lot of guys aching for those two inches, or a whole bunch of people wondering why this is so groundbreaking. Anyone who’s seen the episode of Seinfeld when Kramer’s friend Mickey uses lifts to keep up with the growth spurt of the little kid he’s standing in for knows that lifts have been around forever!
And they’ve always had their critics.
For guys who consistently lie about their height on dating profiles.

If you want to go around boosting your height, more power to you, not that two inches is going to do all that much for you. I’m 5’11 – 6′ on a good day – and I guarantee you that if I lost a shot with a woman, it wasn’t because I was lacking inches on my altitude. YA HEARD?
