I wear these sketchers:




I put one insole in them as well, increases my height 2 inches.

No one ever suspects anything because sketchers are a common brand name here in the states.

I just work around it, straight to bed/sofa.

well I get more out of these than 1 LL, I will always be in lifts, even if I do 2 LL, it will just be 2" max.

Need to get used to them, and the plans to dodge around the height loss.

I'm about 5'5 1/2.  I wear lifts that were marketed to be 3 inches, but, after I measured them, they come out to be about 2 1/2.  But 5'8 is better than 5'5 1/2 so I'll take it.   Grin

I have a pair of these and I call them my Herman Munster or Frankenstein shoes. They are very heavy and make a clog sound when I walk.

umm weren't those the tallmenshoes calden range that you bought?

these are VERY different, they are not like the other ones.

I had all 4 calden 5.0" ones (3.5" taller vs regular shoe)

and I know bugarri does 3 5.0" ones

this is the 5.5" one, its 10x better than those ones.

Mine do make me taller but I'm not sure if they make me 5 inches taller. I have two pairs  and they are both very big and loud. Another challenge with them was trying to be discreet while wearing them. I wear suits for work and they just didn't look right with them but, they looked a lot better when I wore jeans.

Astallastheaverage- We have a store in the mall here that also sells them. I'm going to see if what they have is any better than the other two pairs I own.

you have a walk in store?

I have only seen 3 online outlets that do "extra heightening boots", tallmenshoes, donsfootwear and bugarri shoes.

they started to make them in 2010, the calden ones look bad, give 3.5" vs regular flats (4.5" vs barefoot)

donsfootwear ones look great, they make 2 models.

bugarri make those, they are the best.

increasing shoes (constep) also make ones like these but they are impossible to walk in, maybe you have those ones.

you are probably thinking of these


bugarri sell 3 like these, and calden/tallmenshoes sell 4 like these, they make you 3.5" taller vs flats, they are horrible looking, the bugarri 4.0" one looks 10x better and 100% "normal" like doc martins.

The pairs that I have look exactly like this.

Oh yes in El Monte, California there is a warehouse where I would sometimes go to buy lifts. I've tried almost every brand out there but found most pairs uncomfortable. So, I went to a walk in store to discuss best heights, how to walk in them etc. Here in the Philippines, there is a store inside the Mall of Asia that sells elevator shoes.

well I have those and they are NOT heavy.

they are very light, as light as the sneaker lifts I have.

on the sound they make, its just the same sound doc martins make as it has a boot sole.

they look fairly normal in comparison to most boots.

not sure on the ones you have, maybe they differ somehow, does it say "bugarri" in the inside of the shoe, because they do on mine.

Ok I just want to confirm I was wearing these shoes again today.

they are the lightest shoes on the market, it's like walking on feathers, they are just like wearing regular flats, I am not kidding here.

you should give these ones a go.

That sounds great. I'll take your advice and get a pair or two.
