How to Wear Your LiftKits for Shoes

Follow the steps below to get the most out of your height increasing shoe insoles.

1.  Pick what shoes you are going to wear

Your first step is to pick out what shoes you are going to wear. If a lo-top or regular sneaker, you will want to not wear an insert that is more than 1″ tall.  The two biggest factors when adding an insert to your shoe is to make sure that there is enough room in the heel of your shoe so that you do not step out of your shoes as you walk and that you are not creating too much pressure in the tongue of your shoe.

2. Test the fit of the insert in your shoe

Slide the LiftKits inserts into your shoes. One size fits most shoes (usually size 8 US Mens and up). If your shoes are smaller than size 8 you may need to trim to fit as outlined in steps 3 and 4.

3. In the case the insert is too large for the shoe, assess how much you will need to shorten the insert by

If the insert fits in the shoe appropriately there is no need for trimming.

4. Follow the guided lines, trim with regular scissors

5. Re-insert the insole into shoe to confirm the fit is perfect – try on shoes and you’re ready to go!

If the insole fits the shoes but the shoes are uncomfortable try these tips.

*If the insert takes up too much room in your shoes you can try:

1. Wearing a shoe that is a half size bigger (this usually cures any comfort issues as the the heel of the insert lifts your foot up and  pushes your foot forward at the same time, so by purchasing a larger shoe you are creating more room and ridding yourself of these issues).

2. Loosen your laces or don’t lace them all the way to the top to create more room for your foot
3. Try the insert in a high top, boot or higher ankle support shoe if there doesn’t appear to enough room in the heel of your shoe.

*some Lo-Tops have too low of ankle support for even the 1″ shoe lift.  Because of this we are working on a new lift that fits in even the lowest ankle supported shoes; like Converse Chuck T Low Tops, slip on Vans and some dress shoes.  Keep an eye out for this announcement coming soon.
