If you're thinking about buying elevator shoes, it's better to spend a bit more money and go for a quality brand that will be comfortable to wear and last longer.The brown shoes are from Don's, and are the only elevator shoes I personally recommend.
The leather is exceptional, the MST makes them comfortable combined with the softer sole. said on 20/Oct/17Rob, an idea for a youtube video if you ever have spare time for it try and complete everyday tasks in elevator shoes.
If I wear thick boots (say Timberlands or cuban-heeled such) with a discreet lift (0.5-1 inch perhaps) and brush my hair up, how tall do you think that I could look to people, and do you think that people who already know me from the past will notice that I look taller?
[Editor Rob: there's definitely a proportion who could benefit from exercises to recover hidden height.
As long as the boot is designed to function at 4", 5" or now 6", they are really walkable.
I always test anything new for several hours by firstly short walks (just in case it's "aaargh, no way, get me home") and then longer ones.
