i tried a pair of 1 inch lifts today. i couldn't stop my heel from slipping. i tried the heel lock lacing technique and it helped a bit but i do not understand how people can walk around like this.

It's very uncomfortable. It won't do any good if you're trying to dance. Some people, once they experience shoe lifts, they get hooked on to it and won't go anywhere else without them.

this is incorrect.

seriously 0.5-1.5" are easy to walk in for 8+ hours and you can dance in them etc.

it is 2.0-4.0" that are hard to walk in and not good for dancing.

ask any girl about kitten vs stelleto heels they will say its hard to dance in the latter.

but you should be fine with elevator shoe with a gain of 3" (actual is 1.5") for dancing, running etc.

I'm not saying you can't walk in them properly, you can. I'm just trying to say that they're not comfortable vs a normal pair of shoes to do things. I'm not old enough to own a car, so I don't have the luxury of walking in the lifts for a short period of time. I rely on public transport + walking

I believe elevator shoes are much more comfortable than lifts, I think they have proper heel support.

try this dgdts & NBW

http://www.tallmenshoes.com/k3312.html

that will give you 1" of height vs. flats, saying things like "how can someone walk around like this" in reference to 1" lifts is silly, it is 100% easy.

and I walk around in 4" lifts for an hour and 2.5" for an hour, you cannot run in them, but they are certainly walkable.

I have been on nights out in clubs with 3.5" lifts as well, for a good treck, it's not that tough, girls are in high heels, they are 10x worse as there is little support for them.

1.5" I can do. 2" is hard for me. It doesn't look natural when I walk. It looks like I'm struggling to try and walk as normal as I can without messing up the walking pattern.

thanks for the suggestion though. You should become an online shoe elevator salesman

here is my description of the type of shoes you get in the market now, and how well you can walk in them, I have tried them all so I know what it's like to have each gain.

Type of shoes

0.5”- 1.5” can be had in sneaker/formal wear, and can be worn for 8 hours with 100% ease and you can run in them.

2.0” - 2.5” are available in sneaker/formal wear, and can be worn for about 30 minutes with 70% ease and you cannot run in them.

3.5” - 4.0” can only be had in “boot form” (aka big soles) and can be worn for about 30 minutes with 70% ease and you cannot run in them.

Note: Usually boot form doesn’t look that great, most attire is designed for sneaker/dress; you can get away with boots if the height is really needed, unfortunately most boots are generally seen as being socially unacceptable to wear inside and you ideally cannot get married in them.

note: these are the actual gains, so the 2.5" is an elevator shoes with an advertised gain of 4.0" etc.

with that being said YOU DO walk normally in all of these, I have tested them with my mum and asked if if I walk wierd in these? and she said NO on the 2.5" ones and NO on the 4.0" ones, you do not walk weird so you needn't worry about that.

and you really should be able to walk in these for hours, even the 4.0" ones, women are way worse off in heels than you are in elevator shoes, elevator shoes are like a wedge heel with even more support, to compare them to high heels it is like they are beginners heels.

also I have seen 5 year old girls in high-ish heels (2") with less support than elevator shoes, come on guys, man up!

I have 2 separate pairs from Don's that are really incredibly well made, but I just don't wear them enough to warrant what I spent on them.   Height increase is for real though.

The problem with lifts....in my opinion, is that after a while almost everyone suspects it. No matter how much you hide it.

Yes, I stopped wearing them for now but most of the time felt like Clark kent hiding the shoes or keeping them on all day in the house when I have company. Making sure I remove the lifts if we are drinking just in-case I pass out on the couch and someone removes my shoes cause I'm asleep. Always on the back of my head.
Afraid to take them to a club in NYC and you get patted down and sometimes they make you take your shoes off, that would be embarrassing.
