Can you "get away" with 2. 5" elevator shoes (basically the equivalent of a 1. 5" shoe lift inside of a normal shoe with a 1" heel area). 

Like if you were to take the shoes off around people, would they "consciously" notice the height decrease enough to suspect you, or would they just chalk it up to a "typical height decrease" that comes when you take off your shoes.

This is important since I need to know the max I can get away with.

Yeah but you have to account for the fact that everyone wears shoes with about a 1" sole, so it's only a 1. 5" increase relative to everyone else.

well said. Also heels can be spotted by someone who knows what they are looking for or suspect. LL is always better.

Hi guys, I am wearing height increasing shoes for ages and I am really satisfied.

Don't be ashamed to wear them, they are looking like normal shoes, c'mon! You can browse different websites and models.  I was satisfied with Bertulli brand, but there are so many others.  Don't hesitate and try.  If you don't like them you can always send them back and you will have your money back as well. 

Just in case you want to see what I am wearing:  hxxp: www. bertulli-shoes. co. uk

I don't understand why, but apparently I can't open any new topic. 

So I'll post my question in here, since it's related.

What are the best lifts to use? I'm not looking for elevator shoes, just for proper lifts that won't hurt your feet.  I've been using some for the past months, wearing them time by time, but they're pretty uncomfortable.  I think that "UPS" is the brand.  That's what it's wrote on the insoles.

I found this on the web and it seems pretty good to me, even though it's a little expensive: hxxp: tinyurl. com/mqfgh59

Have you guys ever tried them?

Or maybe you've got something to advice?

Thank you

I know this topic has been posted before but I like to revisit it.

Like how tall are you.
How tall with lifts.
When did you start wearing it.
Etc, etc, etc.......

I was just above 5'2 and I wear lifts to about ~5'5.
I've been wearing it since maybe 21 ?? Thats been like 15 years.
I found out about it when some girl told me her BF stuff his shoes.
I can honestly say my social life got better after I started wearing lifts.(or maybe my confidence just got better).
When I don't have shoes on, I try wearing the thickest sandals possible.
And if someone make me take my shoes off before entering the house, well....I'm in trouble then.

I'd love to hear other people's experience with lifts.
I'd imagine when I'm done with the LL, the lifts will go away.
Then slowly, I'll sneak little by little into the shoes again.

Sorry just wondering, are you male or female? And if you have done LL, does anyone notice your proportion?
I am about 160 cm tall and I am planning to do 13-14 cm LL with 2 operation's

I've been using height increasing insoles for years and this is the major problems that I can list:
   
- It is not DISCREET when the shoes are taken off.

- Uncomfortable/painful if worn on a daily basis for more than 1 h, especially with max height (3"-4"). 

- Bad for your feet if used daily on a higher increase (2.5"-4")

- To achieve more height (2"+) you need to stack/glue layers up that is messy and unstable.

- Adding 2"+ insoles can make the whole shoe quite heavy.


Can you relate to theses issues or is it just me?


Again, some of the problems can be solved with elevator shoes. HOWEVER, they don't solve some one of the major issues - discreteness (especially when shoes are taken off). Also, they create other issues - the selection of designs is still very limited to this day and most of the designs are ugly and/or it is obvious from the outside that it is an elevator shoes. This obviously defeats the purpose of it all.

What I'm really surprised is why nobody in the world has come up with some innovative solution to this issue. The market and demand seems to be there as I found almost 40 makers of elevators shoes and more that 20 makers of insoles.


What are you thoughts and experiences?

emilylj, you are representing Chamaripa, is that right?

I only tried one pair of elevator shoe (from Don) so I'm not an expert, but my experience is that the shoe in the photo can appear as a nice design and as a normal shoe. However, if you want to have 3" increase then once the shoes gets made with that height it doesn't look any longer like in the photo. Also, from my experience, if I spend shopping around I can find a nice looking normal shoe and using the lift inserts myself I can achieve the same up to 3" increase. So in this case it is the best of both worlds and elevator shoe defeats the purpose.

Again, this is based on one elevator shoe make and one model. Please tell me if I'm missing something here.

Below is the link to the photo where I have two shoes, one normal with an insert and the other is the elevator shoe.

They both have the same around 3" total increase and in terms of comfortability I would argue my DIY shoe is more comfortable an natural.

As for the looks, I will leave it to judge it for yourselves Smiley

No. Anything over 1 inch is too much for any shoes. I wear high top shoes and add only 1 inch insoles.

Wearing lifts is another reason to do LL.
