Basic Heel Elevators

There are a variety of situations in which heel lifts can be of great benefit: from adjusting the height of one heel to correct leg length discrepancy, to adjusting the height of both heels to boost height, or simply to promote good positioning and alleviate heel pain.

The Basic Heel Elevators can be applied to a wide range of orthotics to provide an extra lift at the back of the shoe, which can help promote good, natural foot positioning. They can be stuck down onto an orthotic or sole to give a secure, non-slip application.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Pair of Heel Lifts

Sizing of the Basic Heel Elevators

To find the perfect size heel elevator for you, please remove an existing lift, elevator or insole and measure it at the widest point as demonstrated in the image below. Once you have this measurement, please consult the sizing chart beneath to find the perfect size for you!

How to measure your insole

Size UK Shoe Size Dimensions (Length x Width)
Small Size 4 - 6  103 x 60mm
Medium Size 6.5 - 8 109 x 63mm
Large Size 8.5+ 119 x 66mm

Who Can Benefit from Wearing the Basic Heel Elevators?

Most podiatrists would be able to recommend whether a heel lift would be suitable for your needs. Indications for use include:

  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Heel pain
  • Leg length discrepancy

The Basic Heel Elevators are adhesive-backed and available in three depths - 4mm, 6mm and 8mm.

Key Features and Benefits of the Basic Heel Elevators

  • Easy to use heel lifts
  • Can be applied to a range of orthotics
  • Self-adhesive backing for easy application
  • Available in three thicknesses and three sizes
  • Sold in pairs and packs of 10

Which Thickness Should I Buy?

These elevators are available in three different thicknesses: 4mm, 6mm and 8mm. If you suffer from leg length discrepancy, we would recommend speaking to your GP about which degree of elevation you require. If you suffer from heel pain or a heel condition, then choosing one of the lower sizes might be a better choice for you.

How Do the Basic Heel Elevators Work?

The Basic Heel Elevators work by supporting your heel and ankle with a layer of high density EVA polymer. This material can redistribute pressure and reduce the day-to-day strain that your heel feels. Alternatively, if you suffer from leg length discrepancy, using just one elevator can reduce the difference in length between your legs. 

How Comfortable Are the Basic Heel Elevators?

These elevators have been designed to fit comfortably inside your shoe, and won't feel overly bulky or uncomfortable during use. The elevators use a firm yet shock-absorbing material that means your heel is always cushioned while walking. This can actually improve comfort if you spend a lot of time on your feet.

Will the Top of My Foot Rub On the Top of My Shoe?

Due to the downwards sloping nature of the Basic Elevators, you should find that the top of your foot won't rub on the top of your shoe. The elevators quickly get thinner as you move down their length, meaning that your foot should fit snugly inside your shoe without it feeling tight. These elevators are designed to fit inside a pair of shoes with thicker insoles present.

Do the Basic Heel Elevators Move During Use?

A self-adhesive backing on the downward facing part of the elevators means that they won't move around during use. This means that they provide superb comfort and won't cause blisters due to a constant moving underneath your foot.

Buy in a Two Pack or in Bulk

The Basic Heel Elevators can either be supplied as a pack of 2 or in a pack of 10. The self-adhesive backing means that you don't need to remove your elevators from your shoes, so if you like to change the shoes you wear regularly, we would recommend buying a pack of 10. 

High Density Foam

The Basic Heel Elevators have been designed with high density foam, enabling you to provide excellent support to the base of your feet. With high density foam you can encourage recovery by providing unparalleled support, helping to prevent your feet from feeling the full impact of the ground. By reducing this impact, you can increase comfort and reduce injuries while on the move.

What Are These Heel Lifts Made From?

These heel lifts are constructed from a high density EVA polymer. They are flexible but offer a firm surface and support.

Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Size and Fit

Using Your Shoe Size

For most of our insoles, the easiest way to find the best size for you is to go off of your current shoe size. The majority of our insoles are available in a range of sizes and you can simply select the size that best fits your existing shoes.

Please be aware that, as with shoes, there can be slight variations in the size of insoles. For example a size 8 of one brand might not be exactly the same size and width as the size 8 of another. To help account for these discrepancies, a number of our insoles include dimensions to help you ensure you're getting the right size.

Measuring Your Current Insoles

While using your shoe size to find your best size is a good guide, it is not always foolproof. If you want to guarantee that your insole fit your shoes as closely as possible, we recommend measuring your existing insole and using this as a guide to your size.

To do this, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Remove the existing insole from the shoes you wish to use your new insoles with (please note that not all insoles are removable)
  2. Measure the insoles at their longest and widest points (see the below diagram for an idea of where this will be
  3. Match the measurements to the dimensions of the insoles listed, and choose the size that best fits your results

How to measure your insoles

Where Can I Find the Dimensions?

The dimensions for insoles can be found on the "Product Details" tab (please see below) and are usually found in the sizing section of the listing, in a table. Please be aware that not all products currently have the dimensions listed.

Product Details Example
The dimensions of insoles can usually be found on the "Product Details" tab

What If There Are No Dimensions Listed?

If you do not see the dimensions listed on the Product Details tab, please fill in the form below and we will work to get the relevant information as quickly as possible. We will email you once we have the information that you have requested.

Trimming Your Insoles to Fit

To get the ultimate level of fit from your insoles, you can trim them to make a small adjustment. To trim your insoles, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Remove your existing insoles from your shoes
  2. Line up your existing and new insoles at the heel
  3. Trace the outline of the insoles against the new pair at the toe end (see the image below for an example)
  4. Carefully cut along the traced line
  5. Your insoles should now fit your shoes better

Trace the outline of your existing insoles
Carefully trace the outline of your insole

Please note that not all insoles are suitable for trimming. Most insoles are unsuitable for return once they have been trimmed to fit; we recommend bearing this in mind prior to trimming.

If you would like a more detailed guide to trimming your insoles, please read our full guide on How to Trim Your Insoles.

Wednesday, 20 April 2022  |  Ann

I have used similar heel lifts in 4mm but wanted to try a slightly higher lift so ordered 6mm in these basic lifts as they were inexpensive and wouldn't be too much lost if they weren't suitable. The heel lifts are good. They arrived next day so I am pleased with the service . I have used this company before and will order again from them. Thank you for good service and a good range of products. It would be nice to have heel lifts in a light colour for ladies' sandals .

Initially thought they were uncomfortable, but think that was just me getting used to them, now I have had them for a week all fine and do not notice this.
Have ordered another pair as well, you start to find you need several for all shoes and boots unless you want to keep taking out of one shoe to put in another.

Response:

Hi Christopher,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and for letting us know your experience with your Heel Elevators. We really appreciate customer feedback and are really happy you're finding them helpful!

You are correct that products with self-adhesive strips can be tricky to move between different pairs of shoes. Unlike insoles, they are intended to be a more permanent fixture in a single pair of shoes as the self-adhesive tack on the underside will eventually become less and less sticky when routinely transferred. They can be transferred, however if you are routinely using different pairs of shoes that require elevators, we do recommend buying a second pair to prevent slippage or malalignment.

We hope you find this information helpful and thanks again for taking some time to leave us a review!

Kind regards,

Seth at ShoeInsoles.co.uk

Basic but good
Monday, 14 March 2022  |  Ashley

These seem to work to give the right sort of lift I need to avoid tendonitis of the Achilles. But they have a slightly skew shape to fit in a left and right heel of the shoe and yet both in the pack have the adhesive on the same side.

The basic elevators are very practical.
Tuesday, 7 December 2021  |  David

I didn't actually mean to order the basic elevators but I'm not disappointed. I had previously purchased the pro-heel elevators that I switch between footwear and I can actually recommend both types. The basic are ideal for footwear most often used.
