At nighttime in summeryou can of course get away with your usual elevators going out, but there, you see lots of guys now going out just wearing flip flops, particularly to casual things (or indeed whenever they can get away with it, so desperate are they to take advantage of the brief period when it is hot and simple ). It’s not my style . I don’t over dress shoes like a club organiser, but a t-shirt for a night and wearing flipflops out is not me. But plenty of men do, and I can see that if your mates do it, then you do not wish to seem the odd one out. I’ll come back to the night thing. But it really IS a different matter and it’s just another of these trade off/lifestyle things you have to consider. I’ve said it before — if your lifestyle leads you to want to get off your luxury elevator shoes as much as poss and spend hours with the sand between your feet or whatever, then incorporating height HAS to be at a lower level — you just cannot be on the beach or soccer pitch one minute and adding 4″ the following during the afternoon. So that IS a consideration. Drop a bit of height What do I do? I am now in a very hot state for six months endless sun and sea right at my doorstep, well as chance has it. I work DO go on a little bit of sunlight and the beach for a swim and at night, being at the club company, sleep late if I can. But I am not one who wants to play with game or whatever. When I am in London, where I’m usually based, I nearly always wear 4″ or 5″ elevators, but right now out here, during the day I use trainers/sneakers much of time (you can get elevator variations, lots in the GuidoMaggi stove, or include lifts up to a certain degree). If I am on the shore and relaxing of course I take off my trainers, but when I get up I put them on as I love to have my natural height advantage as far as I can when I’m stood. This is nothing odd and it’s all just too much for you do not do it, should having to perform! It is all a decision. This aspect really is all about life and it seems that many cannot grasp this stage that we are different. It is not funny or sad or odd not to do what you believe everybody else is doing. Every one of you has a different way of what trade-offs you’re prepared to make. By trade-offs I mean the degree to which you are ready to (or wish to, or find it easy to) accommodate your height inclusion along with other regions of your life. Of course you may NOT be wanting to run about on the beach playing beach volleyball so that you start with a plus…One of my contacts who I have advised in the past does not go in the water (does not enjoy it), always wears full 4″ elevator shoes on the beach to keep his elevation intact. Nobody approach is’incorrect’ or’correct’ — we are all different and diverse and will certainly do things in another manner. But of course when we’re with a group, we like to stay within criteria. It seems to me that the more you want to do things with others in any lively sense on the shore or at summertime generally (sporting shorts and t-shirts etc) then you HAVE to get prepared to go lower, and also have those options in your wardrobe. Everything you do NOT want to do imho is to drop from height addition completely. From all that I have gathered from the others (and to some degree from my experience), you can do virtually anything exactly the same with roughly 2.5″ — 3″ from sneaker height addition — which is a lot actually, it is effective to other people but it is totally imperceptible taking off and putting on, and also you may run, play beach volleyball and walk energetically in them. That level also means you can wear virtually anything by means of shorts, and also the coaches do as though they may be adding height, NOT show whatsoever. Add more for nighttime — easy I do suggest that for nighttime you can add more — in fact if you are doing the 2.5″/3″ through the day then you CAN go for 4″ lifts during the night in boots. These gaps are modest scale — to everything you may think counter-intuitively, others won’t notice. Whatever you’re doing — whether a sedate dinner or a night out on the nightclubs and bars — I presume that for going out at night (nevertheless young/old) you can push it. If you’re younger and lots of your mates ARE wearing v casual stuff to a barimho add your height in your boots, just spend the benefit and enjoy it that they are in the flattest possible footwear! It doesn’t prevent you dressing casual. One guy I am interested in Estonia is already 6’4′ and adds of stature since all his mates at work are extremely tall. It’s exactly the same. And they comment when such thick soled boots are worn all the time by everybody around them, it is dead simple to include height. So there is a lifestyle aspect ready — would that it were all that easy. The summer, stay at a level during the afternoon to’keep your hands ‘, so to speak and maintain your height up at night.
