and 3 inches is definitely possible it's just not always comfortable, but I wanted to know what the height felt like so I cushioned it with various squishy pads under my toes so that it feels good lol Smiley

people know - especially if they are more than say 2.5" or so. They will pretend not to notice or something like that but especially girls (most girls know all about heals) etc , they know.

it is a valid point but it is your assumption and speculation, maybe this happened to you I really don't know. From my personal experience, they never noticed it, i met lot of girls with it, went out in dates, had a girlfriend, visit my relatives, family etc. Even with my ex girlfriend she never noticed it, maybe i really knew how to hide it pretty well, neither my best friends noticed it))) Even when I had fights with my ex and she would try her best to hurt me this subject never came up. BTW, I always used pants with wide end on the bottom, i never used skinny pants. I agree there are some shoes that are pretty loud and obvious but I never bought those!!! People notice the obvious, but there are some pretty good shoes out there that you can't really tell even with 4" or 4.5"... Now, the worse that happened to me when using lifts was: when i was invited to a house and I had to take off my shoes!!!! i had always to come up with some excuse not to come in the house hahaha, I only told my mother and my sister, and they said they only noticed something was different, that i look better, but they couldn't tell what until i told them, they were amazed, and my mom is the kind that notice even if I gained or lost 2 pounds. I really believe girls or whoever do not notice lifts if you know how to wear them and if you dont buy the obvious freaky shoes. But again this is only my speculation and what I can tell from my experience. Maybe everyone is my life is an excellent pretender and girls were ok with my lifts, as they let me in their life in sexual and romantic level, that's something I will never know.

once they were checking my bags at JFK when coming from an international flight. The security saw my shoes and looked at them then took only one my shoes with 4'5" to a special scanner, then she brought it back, well this happened to me about a year ago, maybe things have change now since then

I know all about the wide pant bottoms and shape of shoes etc etc. I know. To some girls, especially when they are dating you for a while height or any physical attributes is a non issue. Anyway we can agrue about this all day but I still feel that people do know, why would they tell you that they know. If the heel is within reason than maybe not but anything more than say 3" changes even the way you move around (just enough). The girls that are into fashion know all about this.
LL is the best route.

good point! so one tip for people who want to use this shoes, start with small heels, it does change your way of walking but only until you master it like i did, plus if you do it gradually start maybe with 5cms heels for maybe few months until people you know get use to your new height and you get your walking straight, then you can increase another 3 then 4 or even 5cms. yeah i guess we can argue about this all day))))agree to disagree Wink Wink Wink?? Im sure there are some people that can notice it like maybe you and me)))) when I came to do my LL i met people and I told them I was wearing shoes with isolated heels and they didn't believe me until i took my shoes off and they saw how short i got and i literally show them the heels inside the shoes. but again maybe they pretended all lol i guess ill never know)))

I am almost 16 years old a solid 5'8 i always felt a bit short so I made my own 1 inch lifts  Cool from sport shoes. I wear them inside my shoes sometimes, well I look better cause i am 1. 5 inch taller than barefoot which goes me to a pretty average height. The only person who noticed the difference in my height was my gf who is 5'6. 5 and we always had an eve contact and now boom i was 8cm taller than her  Grin .  Anyways i will be wearing then when she is on 4 inch heels when we have only 2 cm difference.  :) I mean 1 inch makes a huge difference. I want to become a ll patient, dont care about pain, risk and effort i had precocious puberty and i was alwas taller than my peers so i know that feel bro. 6cm with donghoon lee in 2-6 years will be great for me :D. I mean i wont be considered short anymore and thats great!

I'm 21 and have been using 3" lifts on a daily base for about 2 months now.
I have to walk around 3-5 km daily to my college but I have gotten used to lifts by now, the 5"7-5"10 boost is enough for me to feel almost no pain ^^.

Kind of like the lifts and the attention I have been getting because of them :).  Lifts will do fine for now and maybe in the far future some LL.

Well.. Here is the lifts that I make. Even if its just for the music, haha. 2.8 inches is the final pair. I would just like to say that I've not advertise them for -3-4 years now.  just make the occasional pair for folks that's interested. I would rather that they buy my shoes Wink  Stay Well, Stay Happy! From the Don!

Short answer: I did wear lifts 2 years ago but I have not worn them since a year ago (haven't done LL yet)

Long answer: Usually I don't feel the need to wear lifts because I get used to "how to talk to tall people". With people 3-4 inches taller than me, stand straight and bend my head back a bit. With people 5+ inches taller than me, stand straight, bend my head back, spread my legs apart a bit for balance and lean backwards. It's a little uncomfortable to talk to people 5+ inches taller than me because I feel like a kid due to the height difference...but like all things, I just get used to it after a while. It's quite funny actually sometimes when very tall people cannot hear me they will "half kneel" and lean 60 degree forward to position their ears next to my head. At least then I know they are trying to hear me? Tongue

Anyway, usually I don't feel short hanging out with my colleagues because I am used to it, but when I go party/clubbing with friends, I would get that distinctive feeling of being "short", the feeling that I am inferior. Mostly this feeling is driven by comments by girls that would wear heels when we go party/clubbing. "Oh wow I didn't know you are so short!" or "I can't hear you now I am on my heels".

I always hated parties because of these comments, until I discovered lifts. Two years ago, I used to wear lifts that are about 3 inches high for special occasions. No cliche intended, but it was "a whole new world". People who noticed my height change at parties joked that I wear "heels", which then I would say "You can wear lifts too! I just want to get some slightly fresher air up here". I wear lifts at parties until I begin to feel a strange sore on my calves. I am sure there are some lifts out there that won't cause sore calves, but it was then that I thought to myself, "I lived 20+ years with my current height. What's the harm to live another 2 years being short as I save up for LL?"

And so, that is why I wore lifts 2 years ago but I have not worn them since a year ago.

Anyone know of any good elevator shoes that are under $60 US, comfortable, very casual, and add at least 2.4 inches? Also, I wear size 11 US and it's ridiculously hard to find elevator shoes in this size since most people who wear elevators have smaller feet than this.

For example, bugarri's only go up to size 9.5 US  Cry

Most importantly, I want to shoes that won't even suggest that they may have platforms inside! The more discreet the better!

Help much appreciated!

There are no shoes with all these characteristics.

The best you can do is to add 1 inch insoles to a normal shoe which is about 1inch, so you'll have about 2 inches gain.

Thanks for the advice. I'll take a one inch gain over nothing any day. I definitely feel a height difference over my normal height in shoes, even with just one inch of lifts added in.

I do have 4 inch lifts but, sadly, they look very strange and unnatural on my feet. Anyone paying attention to my ankles would probably be able to figure out what these particular shoes were intended for.

First time I wore lifts was when I added 2cm of socks inside my shoes, and my shoes were already 1.5cm thick so 3.5cm in total. That day when I walked into uni I got noticed A LOT more. One day you're unnoticed the next day girls are looking at you with a smile and your starting to have livelier conversations with friends. Especially one super hot greek girl was standing around and staring at me like she had a massive crush, not a sight I've seen in ages. It's crazy how 2 cm has such a difference!?!

I only use 1 cm nowadays because more than that just destroys my toes and I dont think I give much of a shi* about what girls think any more, too many failed relationships I'm not even gona try.
