What is a shoe lift?, shoe lifts also known as height insoles, heel lifts, height increasing insoles, shoe lifts inserts are small wedge shaped devices that are inserted into shoes or boots, to increase height so the user becomes taller. A heel lift is exactly the same as a shoe lift, presumably the difference in terminology is used to explain the exact function of the lift, whenever a shoe lift or heel lift is inserted into the shoe or boot, the heel portion of the footwear becomes extended, resulting in the heel becoming raised, exactly the same principle as high heel shoes, with the heel raised the individuals height is also elevated. Shoe lift insert, again is exactly the same, insert denoting that the height increasing insoles are inserted into the shoe or boot. There exists a huge demand for height increase, as an individuals body image becomes more and more important in a society where image has become everything. There are also many different paths for an individual to increase height, height inserts being just one. So called elevator shoes are another way to get taller, these are shoes or boots with height increase insoles already built in to them. Elevator shoes are just as effective as shoe insoles for height but are a lot more expensive and they do restrict the user to just the one pair of shoes, if the individuals new found height is to be available at all times, unless of course the user has an unlimited supply of elevator shoes for every occasion. Height increasing shoe insoles do have a distinct advantage compared with elevator shoe lifts, being a lot less costly and having the ability to be removed at will and reinserted into any shoes or boot that is required, this does save a lot of money and preempts the need for purchasing several elevator shoes. An individual seeking extra height has more options available than just insoles to increase height, there is a veritable tsunami of wonder treatments on offer, all promising to increase height. Not all of these options are as conclusive as the advertising would have us believe, miracle height growth pills have been around for many years but as of yet there is no real conclusive evidence that they actually work. There are also many exercise programs advertised, I have yet to find any evidence that any of these actually work. Shoe inserts increase height, this is a fact and they increase height every time, this is not disputable, it is a fact that could save anyone wanting to be taller a lot of time, worry and most important money. Shoe lifts are guaranteed to increase height, period. A new trend is emerging and that is leg lengthening surgery, as the term indicates this method of increasing height involves a surgical procedure. The surgery involves breaking the leg bones of the individual concerned, inserting pins in the legs keeping the broken bones apart, this promotes the growth of bone tissue to bridge the gap between the ends of the broken bones. Leg lengthening surgery is time consuming, painful and not least very, very expensive, it is my honest opinion that if someone is looking to increase height then in shoe heel lifts are a much quicker, cheaper and less painful option, though leg lengthening surgery would give a lifetimes increase, with no need to buy elevator shoes or height increasing shoe inserts. There are shoe lifts for men and shoe lifts for women, all these insoles increase height and are very affordable and easily accessible on the internet, which is very convenient for anyone that wants to buy shoe lifts from the comfort of their own home. All heel lifts for shoes are very light in weight and easy to insert into either a shoe or a boot, some height increasing inserts offer more height gain than others. It is widely accepted that shoe height inserts should offer no more than 5 centimeters height increase, an insoles height should be measured at the rear, this figure is not a wild guess, chiropractors and orthopedic professionals agree that anything over 5 centimeters could be dangerous, not just dangerous while walking but using such shoe inserts to increase height could lead to future problems with both the upper and lower back, any increase height insoles that are advertised to offer more than a 5 centimeter height gain should be avoided, 5 centimeters is more than enough for anyone, an insoles height increase can be directly proportionate to the safety of the lift. Leg length discrepancy is a condition where one leg differs in height from the other leg, This may be a birth defect or it may occur after a broken leg, a serious infection, or damage sustained to one or more of the growth plates in a leg. Leg length alignment asymmetry is more common and occurs when when the legs themselves are the same length, but because of injuries in the pelvis or upper leg, one leg or hip is held higher and tighter than the other, these unequally tightened muscles can cause the legs to seem to be of a different length. In such cases, more and more orthopedic doctors are turning to shoe lift inserts, the patient is prescribed heel inserts and as well as being a quick and painless treatment, the cost to health authorities is considerably reduced, which is always a factor. Shoe heel lifts are not a lifetime cure in such situation but can increase the maneuverability of the patient and in many cases can also help to decrease limping and lead to a marked improvement in self confidence. Insoles for height are not just used to increase height but are also used to alleviate the pain and suffering of sufferers of leg length discrepancy, not bad for the humble shoe lift. There are two main types of heel lift inserts, the full insole shoe heel lift or the half insole height shoe inserts, both have the same function, to increase height and differ only in length, the full height shoe insoles include a full length insole exactly the same as any ordinary insole whereas the half shoe height insoles do not offer a complete insole, just the heel area of the shoe. Some height increase insoles are more suited to use with boots rather than shoes as sometimes, especially with low backed shoes, the shoe insoles height can protrude outside the shoe.A heel lift for shoes is specially designed to overcome this issue. Heel lift shoes also overcome this problem as the shoe or heel lift boots are predominantly designed around the actual heel lift boot. Nowadays there is a huge market for shoe lifts, be it heel lifts for men or heel lifts for women, both mens shoe lifts and shoe lifts women are identical to each other the difference being in the size of the insole, a shoe lift for men will naturally be better fitted to a male shoe or boot and the opposite is the case for womens shoe inserts, height gain will be just the same in both cases. So when buying any type of height increasing insole always be sure to get the correct one, price will never be an issue as these devices are inexpensive. When buying online delivery can be arranged in unassuming packaging so privacy is assured. Because buying shoe lifts online is so easy it is so easy to find a solution to feeling insecure because of height issues and to feel a lot more confident and attractive for a very small financial outlay, shoe lifts are a no brainer.
