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.
For many years a prime supplier of Elevatoe Shows was the Adler Shoe Company, which appealed to short men with slogans like "Build up your Ego, Amigo!" and (most memorably) "Now YOU can be taller than SHE is!"
