How Much Taller Do Timberland Boots Make You?
Timberland boots are trendy and cool at the same time. But they weren’t designed keeping fashion in mind. This is why they never focused on heel heights.
These boots look thick, tough, and insulated and each feature serves the kind of workers they intended to make for.
However, it doesn’t imply that they have no heels at all. It does have heels and it can make you a maximum of 2 inches or 5.08cm taller.
I have also mentioned before that sizes impact the height slightly. The larger size you buy, you would notice a slight increase in height. But that’s almost considered negligible.
One drawback about these heel heights is the compression.
Soles tend to compress as you keep on using them. The rigidness of a sole varies on what type of boot you are wearing.
If you are wearing work boots then soles tend to be extra rigid. So less compression, less decrease of heel height.
On the other hand, if you choose hiking boots. Then the soles are seen to be more flexible and less rigid than work boots. It’s because the flexibility of the toes is important while climbing or hiking rough areas.
Now going back to flexibility.
Because it is flexible and less rigid, they tend to compress with time. This means if it’s 1.5 inches now, it doesn’t mean it would stay 1.5 inches all the time. The height would decrease, the more often you wear them.

Do Timberlands Look Good on Short People?
Height isn’t what makes Timberlands make people look good. It’s the outlook that matters.
I do agree, looks is a relative term here. The definition of “looking good” varies from person to person.
Some people believe the taller you are, the better you look. Whereas, some people believe it’s the outfits that define how you look.
Personally, I believe Timberland boots are cool enough to outstand both outfits and heights completely.
To me, no matter what you wear or how short you are, wearing Timberlands would make you look great and stunning!
Besides, look at Ariyana Grande, Cardi B, Billie Eilish, and the list goes on. They are short, yet wearing 1 or 2 inches of boots. And they don’t just look good, they look awesome.
So why won’t you look good?
No, not just good. You would look tough, stylish, and stunning. You already do. So believe in yourself and wear them if you are into Timberland boots.
But if you are looking for Timberland boots that can make you look taller (like almost 3 to 4 inches tall), then Timberland may not be your best option.
