Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift
The Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift is the ultimate heel lift. Not a heel pad or cushion, the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift is a firm heel raise that is finely adjustable from 1.0mm to 12.0mm by removing and replacing the self adhesive plastic layers. The Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift allows for the staged introduction into, or away from heel lift therapy and contours to the shoe and the plantar aspect of the heel without losing height. The Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift is layered laterally and easily trimmed with scissors to create a varus wedge up to 5 degrees. The Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift is placed under the foot-bed or insole and moulds to the shoe so that each shoe fits and feels alike.
Please note that the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift includes a single heel lift only, NOT a pair.
Who Can Benefit from the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift?
The long constant slope of the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift supports the arch and avoids bridging the heel and ball of the foot, reducing arch stress. The firm, multi-layered material does not cause heel rubbing in the shoe. When placed under the insole, the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift creates no additional bounce or heel motion in the shoe, unlike foam rubber or gel materials, and will not compress or lose its shape in use.
The transparency of the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift makes it ideal for use in sandals and fitting to your shoe takes only seconds. The easy customisation of the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift provides spot pressure relief for heel spurs or plantar warts and the fine control of elevation for best foot comfort. Peeling or replacing a layer changes elevation by 1mm, so that shoe lift height can be adjusted up or down at any time from 1 to 12mm.
The Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift is available in a choice of three sizes - Small, Medium or Large to fit most (see sizing chart below).

How Thick is a Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift?
It's important to know how thick your heel lifts are. Take a look at the image below to see just how the lift slopes to give graduated relief:
Thankfully, we've measured them so you don't have to. These measurements are taken before any adjustment to the lift has been made. To get an idea of thickness dimensions, take a look at the measurements below:
- Heel Height: 14.5mm
- Mid Lift Thickness: 8mm
- Bottom of Lift Thickness: 0.5mm
The Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift is sold as a single item, NOT as a pair. It is suitable for both left and right feet.
Instructions For Fitting The Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift
In order to fit the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift to your shoe, simply peel and replace the layers of the heel lift to set the height of the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift. You can remove or replace the top (longest) layers first. For example, if you wanted a 9mm heel lift height, simply remove the top three layers. However, for 6mm or less of heel lift, remove every other layer of the heel lift instead. (It also means you will have two heel lifts for the price of one!).
Then remove your insole or moulded footbed from your shoe and place the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift with the smooth side up on the floor of the shoe. If the heel lift needs trimming to fit perfectly, you can trim the edges of the heel lift. If the heel lift is too thick to cut, you can dismantle the layers, cut the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift to the correct shape on each layer (using your first modified layer as a template) and then fit the layers together again. Then replace your insoles or moulded footbed in your shoe on top of the heel lift. Sticky tape is not normally needed to keep the Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift in place.

What If My Insoles Aren't Removable?
The Clearly Adjustable Heel Lift isn't particularly suited to use in shoes with insoles that aren't removable, as it may be uncomfortable when placed on top of existing insoles. For shoes without removable footbeds, we recommend the Cambion PQ 6mm Heel Lift, as it provides a 6mm lift along with cushioning to enhance the comfort of your shoes.
