Unlike high-heeled shoes, the component of elevator shoes that increases the wearer's height is inside the shoe, hiding it from observers. An elevator shoe, like the platform shoe's heel, can be made from different soles like plastic, wood, or rubber. Shoes with thickened soles are also used in cases of orthopedic problems, although the term "elevator shoe" is not usually used for these.
Shoe lifts are often sold separately as versions that are small enough to fit inside a regular shoe. These lifts can increase the sole height by 1-2cm in a regular shoe. By contrast, elevator shoes are designed to accommodate a much larger shoe lift of up to 7cm. Combined with the outsole, this can typically increase the wearer's height by up to 10cm.
An optimized insole of an elevator shoe so that it no longer has to be arched on the heel. Thus, creating a raised flat sole that provides the perfect unison of a lift and the exact comfort of regular shoes.
