The answer is going to vary depending upon what story and what set of legends or Fairy Tales you wish to base the answer on. In the majority of stories, elves are depicted as being very small. Small Elves * The house elves in Harry Potter series are much shorter than people. * The elves in The Shoemaker and the Elves are on the small side. * The movie Elf had small elves * The Santa Clause movies had small, as well as young, elves. Tall Elves * J. R. R. Tolkien's Elves (The Lord of the Rings, etc) are physically the same as Men (although the different human peoples vary in size, so some are shorter). * The books in the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini, also had tall thin elves

How tall is Arwen?

not clear, but I always saw her as a tiny bit taller than arigorn (elves are tall) even though arigorn was tall for a man of his time. I would say at least 186 cm but probably taller. Only pics of her being slightly taller is when Aragorn is nodding down. But the shoe or none shoe-matter is not regarded here. Elves are known to wear thin-soled shoes. Everything from 186-193 cm is a possibility not regarding he can have slightly thicker soles making her some centimeters taller then
