For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a short person. At 5 foot 1, most of my friends throughout school were much taller than me and it was a sore point during my childhood. But alas, I was cursed to be short and there is no cure, right? Wrong – enter elevator shoes.
Just because the rest of the world normally towers above you doesn’t mean that you can’t feel more self-confident and add a couple of inches to your own height. When you try a pair of shoes that offer a little bit of lift to your stature you will notice your walk becomes a little more confident and you are able to stand eye-to-eye with your friends and colleagues.
Even though there is nothing wrong with having a shorter body style there might be instances that you wish you could close that gap just a bit. Standing straight and walking tall might change any insecurities you might have felt in the past.
One thing to look for when shopping for elevator shoes, otherwise known as height-lifting shoes, is their appearance. Along with an increase in height, is that they can ‘look’ like elevator shoes. Some have an obvious thick hell and square toes. If you can find something tapered that looks less like a specialized shoe it will probably stay in style longer and have a more appealing look. As with most things you probably get what you pay for in elevator shoes. You will want them to look good, be comfortable to wear for long periods of time and to last.
Some shoes will be able to add anywhere from two to five inches in height and still have comfort and can deliver the important support you need while wearing them also. There are hundreds of styles on the market so you don’t have to feel like a shoe with lifts can’t be attractive. You can find everything from dress shoes and casual shoes to workout wear. Almost every style can be found by the right company in a taller size.
Along with increasing your height elevator shoes can also help improve your posture and offer the necessary support needed to keep your gait smooth and your stature straight. When you are feeling a little taller and standing up straight, you will have a feeling of positivity and well-being that you may have never known before.
