You can easily increase your height by up to two and half inches without any noticeable difference in your shoes. Elevator shoes have very thick soles that can look odd in some outfits. Since shoe lifts can be inserted into any shoe you aren’t stuck wearing elevator shoes with every single outfit that you own.

    The freedom to wear your favorite shoes is an advantage that brings many people to womens adjustable shoe lifts rather than elevator shoes.Elevator (Frankenstein?)

With elevator shoes it is easy to see the difference in the sole heights. If you are self-conscious about your elevator shoes now is a great time to switch over to shoe lifts, instead.
