Kim Kardashian West Says This Type of Shoe Makes Her Look Taller

Some might be surprised to find out that Kim Kardashian West stands at only 5 feet 3 inches. Yes, looks can be deceiving. The star tricks fans and followers into thinking she’s taller with a few simple moves that involve her shoe choices.

On Sept. 21, Kardashian West wrote an entry on her website titled “Short-Girl Problems: My Top 3 Tips for Lengthening Your Look.”

She wrote, “It’s not a secret that I wear heels 99 percent of the time. If I do wear flats, it’s a momentous occasion, lol. I live in heels because they’re the best way to look taller.”

But what kind of heels exactly? “Wearing nude, skin-tone or clear shoes elongates your legs!” she said.

Lately, she’s been spotted wearing clear heels from husband Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 2 and Yeezy Season 4 lines, which has us thinking he designed the shoes with his wife in mind. She even wore those crazy clear thigh-high boots that appeared in the Yeezy Season 4 show.
