I feel you Josh, it sucks being short. Are you sure the height wouldn't outweight the proportion issues you would get? Have you thought about arm lengthening? I know there is a few on the forum that has been looking into it? 5'8 is a decent height, you could become even taller with lifts on. I'm 5'9 and I can definintly tell you that it's a decent height if you live in non scandinavic countries!

I'd like to share with you guys this pic.
On the left is 167cm (dream LL height) and on the right is no shoes 160cm

note: I don't actually wear much when I go out. I'd probably only wear an inch.
So if I was to get LL in the tibias of 7cm, would you people say I don't look proportional?

I think you would look fine proportion wise and longer tibs makes one appear taller than if you were to do femurs

I've never worn lifts.  Where can I get some good ones from? And are they noticeable? Can they be worn with any shoes?

A 5'6" boy came back after the summer holidays one time and was suddenly taller than me.  He claimed he grew nearly 4 inches in that time.  He went around boasting to all the people that called him small before that he was nearly as tall as them.

Needless to say, the abuse he got when he had to take he shoes off to get changed for sports was borderline awful.  Because he was still 5'6", but had 4 inch lifts.  We wouldn't have minded if he hadn't squared up to every guy who teased him before and aggressively attacked them for all the abuse he got before.  But for some people, the fact that he had the nerve to  call himself taller because he was wearing lifts was just disrespectful, and they just laid into him further.

He still wears them.  He got a girlfriend out of school who was 5'7".  When people at my school found out about this, they messaged the girl asking if he had ever taken he shoes off - she said no, but she didn't think it was anything weird.  The next day, when he came round, she asked him to take off his shoes. I think you can guess what happens next.

I would have sympathy for him, but the first thing he said to me when he came back 4 inches 'taller' was that I was a 'F***** midget' when I was literally a cm smaller than him.  It's not like I was one of those people who called him small before anyway - I never talked to him. 

Whenever anyone asks how tall he is now he always says '5'10"', which is ridiculous.  And he can't get away with it forever.  He's living a lie.

By all means, wear lifts if you plan on doing ll.  If you don't, I seriously reccomend you don't - all it does is paper over the cracks.

Can anyone suggest some lifts that are comfortable and would give at least a 2 inch increase. I am new to lifts and I'm assuming they are insoles placed in whatever shoes you're wearing, true?  Huh? I'm looking for something comfortable that wont give me a awkward walk.

Thanks

well shoe lifts and elevator shoes are sometimes called the same thing.

you should buy elevator shoes anyway.

http://www.tallmenshoes.com/k232inta1.html

this is THE BEST pair that will give you 2" more height than a regular shoe.

do not go for the casual range they offer, they are not comfortable, sneaker/sporty is the best, they have the most cushioning.

I have worn the 2.5" version of that shoe, people say I look like I walk normally, but no it does change my gate, i'd say the 1.5" version allows you to walk 100% comfortably.

http://www.tallmenshoes.com/elevator-shoes-3313.html < 1.5" version here.

conversely when i wear the 3.5" boots people notice I walk strange, but it is not noticeable at 2.5" even though I feel I walk wierd

I have many shoes. I'm kind of a shoe fetish guy. I'm really looking for something to put into my loafers and dress (formal) shoes. I dont care about using them for sneakers because I only wear them when I'm working out.

well you can use lifts then but the gain you get form them isnt that much, there just isnt much room in regular shoes to lift you up, maybe you can get 1" more out of lifts but than the shoe regularly gives but i doubt you'd get 2" unless you bought a large boot a bigger size up or something.

I've been wearing lifts since 2002.  Hate every second of it.
Hate the damage it does to my shoes. 
Hate that it limits which shoes I can wear.
Hate the way I walk in them(The more inches you go the more you walk like a disabled person. 
Hate the pain in my feet. 
Hate the fear of being found out.
Hate having to replace them.

Why does it limit the shoes you can wear?

advertised gain is 5.5", actualy gain vs regular shoe is 4.0"

Note: I am in talks with allan from donsfootwear and he is going to make a 4.0" version of the fossato boot, he may even make a 4.5" version later, bringing me to 5' 9"

yeah it sucks cause i can only wear boots w/ my 4.5cm lifts. i think that's the most i would go and nothing more. w/ proper boots i'm standing at around 5'6.5-5'7. which by all means is decent enough for me as my starting height is 160cm. lol. thinking about getting nicer shoes more specifically sneakers w/ the same added amount. if i can walk comfortably in those i don't think i'll need LL. com'on! make more nice shoes for us shorties! haah
