Skechers After Burn – Memory Fit
Listed on the official website with 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) of heel height, the Skechers After Burn Memory Fit is one of the tallest Skechers shoes, adding about 1.3 to 1.4 inches of height.
The Skechers After Burn – Memory Fit is a basic pair of lace-up trainers that feature a leather, synthetic, and mesh upper with cushioned Memory Foam insole.
At first glance, the shoe may look uncomfortable because of the bulky profile, but the Memory Foam insole on the inside not only makes it pleasant to wear but also makes you taller.
I’m 5’7 so wearing this pair of Skechers makes me roughly 5’8 tall. The pair does take some time to get used to due to the higher sole but it’s pretty solid. I wear it for brisk walking.
Although I wouldn’t wear this pair for running (there are better Skechers running shoes), I would wear it for casual walking around town. Or better yet, give a pair to parents or seniors.
Skechers GOrun Elevate
The Skechers GOrun Elevate is one of the most comfortable Skechers that make you taller, listed at 1.5 inches of heel height, adding about 1.3 to 1.4 inches of height.
People adore this particular Skechers shoe because of its unique lacing system, or lack thereof. It’s basically a versatile workout shoe with a pull-on design and a breathable mesh upper.
Moreover, the cushioning has been praised by plenty of people who stand all day. My sister works 16 hours a day and this pair of Skechers made sure she didn’t feel any pain.
In fact, many of her coworkers praised her comfy-looking shoes due to the color (white with a touch of soft pink and green). It also made her taller by about one and a half inches.
Skechers Hyper Burst
One of the tallest Skechers shoes is the Hyper Burst, boasting a substantial 2 inches of heel height with a 6 mm heel drop, making you roughly 1.8 to 1.9 inches taller.
A friend of mine made the switch from Asics running shoes to the Skechers Hyper Burst because he was having plantar fasciitis pains. He said the shoe’s been great.
The Hyper Burst has made almost all of the pain go away. He tried shoe inserts, but now he can walk without them in these shoes. In fact, he’s doing about 8,000 steps a day now, pain-free.
Would I recommend this shoe for performance running? No. But if you’re looking for a pair of athletic sneakers for long-distance walking, the Hyper Burst is one of the best.
In addition to the superior cushioning, I really like the Goodyear Anti-slip Rubber Outsole on the bottom of each shoe that delivers enhanced traction, stability, and durability.
Available for both men and women. The Skechers Hyper Burst is a great pair of sneakers that not only adds more height but also emulates the feeling of walking on clouds.
Skechers GOrun Glide
The Skechers GOrun Glide is one of the tallest Skechers shoes.
Although the height from the top of the heel to the bottom of the sole is 3 inches, the actual heel height is 2 inches. Overall, this particular Skechers shoe makes you 1.8 to 1.9 inches taller.
A friend of mine officiates basketball games for middle and high schools.
Every year he buys a new pair of shoes. He hit the jackpot with this because it’s very light and comfortable. This goes to show that this pair of Skechers is great for brisk jogging and walking.
Up top, the upper is breathable thanks to the knot fabric upper. Down below, the midsole is so bouncy thanks to the super thick foam with a unique weave design.
Skechers Max Cushioning Elite
The tallest pair of Skechers shoes is the Max Cushioning Elite. It boasts a whopping 2 inches of heel height with a 6 mm heel drop, adding about 1.8 to 1.9 inches of height.
As the name suggests, the Max Cushioning Elite is the Skechers shoe with the most cushioning. The arch support is so soft on the floor, it’s like walking on pillows.
Even with high-end running shoes, I keep getting calf pull injuries. Then, my brother told me about these and I’m grateful that he did. No more problems with my muscle pull.
I immediately bought a pair for both my wife and my sister, and they’re both extremely happy with the shoe. The colors available are also nice because they are subtle and neutral.
Also, don’t sleep on the upper. The material is made of a breathable lightweight engineered knit fabric that not only hugs both of your feet but keeps them cool inside as well.
Overall, if you’re looking for the most comfortable Skechers shoe that makes you taller, look no further. The Max Cushioning Elite will make you donate all of your remaining sneakers.
