What Are Height Increasing Insoles?

23 October 2018  |  Eugene

Height increasing insoles, sometimes known as 'shoe lifts', are the easiest way to boost the elevation your shoes provide. Often, these are used in only one shoe to correct a discrepancy between the length of your legs, which can cause an uneven gait that leads to a whole host of other problems. Alternatively, they can be placed in your shoes to give you a little boost in height and confidence, and can also help to increase comfort for those with ankle or Achilles problems. If you'd like to see all of the options we  have available, take a look at our Height Increasing Insole category!

Height Increasing Insoles for Leg Length Discrepancy

Did you know that approximately 60% of the UK population have some sort of discrepancy between their leg lengths? For most people the difference in height between either limb is so subtle that they're likely to go through life never noticing it. For those who do, though, help is at hand (or foot)! Our height increasing insoles are easy to use to give you the boost you need, and in true ShoeInsoles.co.uk fashion, they're designed to make your shoes as comfortable and healthy for your feet as possible!

Save Your Little Leg

If you are able to see – or more importantly, feel – the difference in the length of your legs, then you’re probably not unfamiliar with back aches, sore hips, aching arches and a host of other pains that come from suffering from an unbalanced gait. Leaving your uneven legs uncorrected will only stand to make these symptoms worse, especially as leg length discrepancy can be a life-long issue resulting from the way your limbs grow. Leaving a shorter leg to compensate for its lacking height without any corrective assistance can lead to issues not only with the leg itself, but with the foot, where it spends the much of its time compensating for the difference.

Boost Your Confidence!

While our height increasing insoles are great for correcting leg length discrepancy, they can serve a more aesthetic purpose as well. While size isn't everything, a little boost in height can go a long way to increasing your confidence throughout the day, and a pair of our height increasing insoles can do just that. As an added bonus, if you find there's a little extra space in your shoes, height increasing insoles can fill that space to give you a snug,comfortable fit!

Our Favourite Height Increasing Insoles

If you're lost as to which height increasing insole to pick, don't worry, because we're here to help. To start, the Clearly Adjustable Leg Length Discrepancy Insole is a great pick, as it fits most shoes, and can be adjusted in 1mm increments to provide the perfect height for you. Ideal for all of the purposes we mentioned above, this insole will conform to the shape of your shoe for maximum comfort, providing a height boost without any deficit to comfort or performance. Alternatively, these insoles are also available in a heel lift version.

Adjust-A-Lift Heel Lift

Adjust-A-Lift Heel Lift

Our next pick is a similar product, but made with a leather top layer for some extra cushioning and odour-prevention. The Adjust-A-Lift Heel Lift is made of three separate 3mm layers of neoprene rubber, finished with a layer of leather. You can remove each layer to achieve your desired level of lift, and with one in each shoe, you can enjoy a slight height increase. Since the top layer is made of leather, these lifts are breathable, comfortable, and help to prevent the build-up of odour.

The Height of Comfort

Whether you want to boost your height or correct a leg length discrepancy, everything you need is here at ShoeInsoles.co.uk for the taking. While some of our favourite height increasing insoles are listed here, there are plenty of other options that all have their own unique benefits.
