In casual conversation this can even be shortened to "I'm five seven." The feet and inches are both understood.

EDIT: An interesting thing to note is that when describing a person's height, you say "five foot" not "five feet." I'm sure there is an interesting explanation as to why.
If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!
