Shoe lifts are small and very discreet. When you wear them with sneakers or loafers no one will know that you have a device in your shoes at all. You can easily increase your height by up to two and half inches without any noticeable difference in your shoes. Elevator shoes have very thick soles that can look odd in some outfits. Since shoe lifts can be inserted into any shoe you aren’t stuck wearing elevator shoes with every single outfit that you own.
The freedom to wear your favorite shoes is an advantage that brings many people to shoe lifts rather than elevator shoes. Another big difference is that you can use shoe lifts for leg length discrepancy in only one shoe and no one will notice the difference. With elevator shoes it is easy to see the difference in the sole heights. If you are self-conscious about your elevator shoes now is a great time to switch over to shoe lifts, instead.
