Introduction and History of Elevator Shoes for Men

Elevator Shoe is very much similar to ladies high heels, except they are invisible, feels better, and actually improving your posture.

They work the same way as women's high heels with a elevated foot step back at the heel area. Elevator shoes aka height increasing shoes, man hidden high heel shoes, height enhancing shoes, lifting shoes etc. Nowadays elevator shoes are rapidly getting more popular because of they are more and more stylist yet functioning perfectly.

Custom insert may be a alternate solution however not as effective as the already well made elevator shoes. Height increasing insole or insert are ideal for high profile shoes as boot style or high top sneakers. Regular "Loafer" style's back portion (the back of the shoes and collar area) is mostly too short to accommodate your heels and hold tight. Your shoes become "slippers" and will walk funny. Nonetheless shoe lifts are more versatile and customizable than elevator shoes.

Our products feature 2 to 5.2 inches in height increasing and are comfortable enough for everyday wear. After a very short period of usage you will prefer the feeling of standing straighter. Many of customer prefer them over regular shoes.

How to Make High Heels Elevator Shoes More Comfortable


Use shoe inserts/pads from the drugstore for the balls of your feet. These reduce some of the pressure placed on your foot when walking or standing in high heels. Most are self-adhesive and can be easily place into the shoe.


Try heels from a comfort line such as Naturalizer, Easy Spirit or Aerosoles. These shoes are designed for both comfort and style and feature padded insoles.


Look for shoes that have a “hidden” platform built in that supports the front of the shoe. Lust-worthy Christian Louboutin shoes offer this style, but you can also find the style in lines by Steve Madden and Guess.


A shoe with a slightly thicker heel, as opposed to a stiletto, is more comfortable for all day wear or walking. Shop for heels that can offer this type of support.


While sky-high stilettos are to die for, a heel can be a little lower and still look sexy. Experiment with kitten heels for a feminine look that’s also comfortable and work appropriate. Wedges are also another way to wear heels, since they offer the height of a heel with maximum comfort.


Extra comfort padding insole will eliminate shock and increase the softness of the impact while walking

Fashion Tips for Shorter Men

Before we start with the fashion advice, the following are some simple yet often overlooked tips that can help you appear taller:

1. Maintaining good posture is key if you want to hit your maximum height potential. Remember to sit with your back straight and stand proud with your head up high at all times. A slouched stance will only make you look shorter, not to mention insecure.

2. Keep in mind that, as a general rule, short hair works best for shorter men. Long hair tends to hide the neck and shoulders, making your head and body look like one body part, which doesn't help you in your quest to look taller.

Wear vertical stripes
Anything that elongates your height is a good thing. For example, vertical stripes in clothing can help extend the look of your shorter body.

Opt for dark shades & light fabrics
In addition, dark colors, especially black, tend to have a slimming effect and help shorter men seem more elongated. The same applies to light or medium-weight fabrics. Heavier fabrics, on the other hand, tend to make you look bulkier and shorter.

A proper fit is key
Remember it's important that your clothes fit flawlessly. Looser garments can make you look stumpy, so opt for a fit that is trim rather than baggy. In terms of sweaters and T-shirts, V-necks can help make your torso look longer. Turtlenecks, on the other hand, can make you look stumpy, as they conceal your neck.

Do not wear your pants too high; you should wear them just above your hips. Also, avoid wearing low-rise pants (even if they are the trendier alternative), as they tend to make legs look shorter than they already are. Your trousers should break on your shoes slightly more than average, to help make your legs look longer by covering your socks properly. Finally, keep in mind that pants with no pleats or a single pleat are more flattering than multiple pleats.

Just look good
Just remember that the key is not necessarily to look as tall you can, but to look as good as you can. The proper fit and the right styles can make you look great, regardless of your height.

How to Make Regular Width Shoes Work with Narrow Width Feet

Finding shoes that fit perfectly for people with narrow feet is very hard. Only a small handful of shoe brands create shoes geared for people with narrow feet. Most people with narrow feet have to suffer with regular width shoes that can cause a variety of problems. If your shoes do not fit snugly, your feet can slip around in the shoes which can cause irritation, blisters, and ulcers. Injuries are not only limited to those just mentioned, shoes that don't fit properly can also cause you to twist an ankle if your feet slip around inside your shoes. Especially people who are physically active and participate in running or any other sports activity. It is very common to twist an ankle because of poorly fitting shoes.

So what can you do if you have narrow feet? If you cannot find the shoes you want in narrow width, there are a couple of things that you can do to help your regular width shoes fit more snugly.

If you find the perfect pair of shoes that you just can't live without, but you are a little discouraged because they do not come in narrow width, no need to worry. With just a couple of techniques, your regular width shoes will fit much better and you will reduce your chances of injuries in the future.

First of all, purchase a cushioned insole to insert into your shoes. You want to make sure that the insole offers heel, arch, and shock support. A well cushioned insole will not only add support to your feet and joints, but will also fit snugly inside your shoe to help reduce friction. An insole also helps to stabilize your foot inside your shoe to keep your foot in place and reduce slipping.

Another technique that can help your shoes fit better if you have narrow feet, is the way you lace your shoes. If your shoes have two sets of eyelets on each side, lace through the ones furthest from the tongue. This will help bring both sides of the shoe together more tightly. There are several different types of lacing techniques, and many of these techniques can help cure a lot of shoe problems. If you are not quite sure how to lace your shoes, there are several websites on the internet that offer pictures and step-by-step guides to different lacing techniques.
If you have narrow feet, try following these suggestions to reduce irritation and pain with your normal width shoes. You no longer have to worry if a brand comes in narrow width; with these techniques, you can now wear any type of tennis shoes that you wish.
