Adding some extra height to your frame can be a real confidence booster, especially if you're headed to a job interview or important meeting at work. You don't have to buy stilettos to do the trick, though -- instead, try adding height to footwear that's already in your closet. That may seem like mission impossible, but with the right insert, you can get some extra height and no one will be the wiser.
Get a Lift
Lifts are an easy way to temporarily add extra height to your shoes. These inserts slip inside your footwear and offer anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of additional height. They have a shape similar to a wedge shoe as the insert gradually slopes to its greatest height at the heel. While you can slip lifts inside any shoe, they usually work best in lace-up styles, which more easily and comfortably accommodate the insert. To be on the safe side, don't use a lift more than 1-inch tall in a low-top shoe, and be sure there's enough space at the heel with the lift inserted so you don't step out while walking. Getting used to wearing lifts can take some time, so practice in them before using them outside.
