Just curious, but is the height of professional athletes taken while wearing their skates, shoes, kleets ect? Because that's the height that they compete at, or is it taken without shoes? Cause I notice that some of them are rounded up or their height is listed as one inch taller from the last season to this season on the official team rosters.

Yes, some athletes' heights are taken with their shoes.
Take for example Michael Jordan, he's called as 6'6, while in barefoot he's really around 6'4.
