Heel lifts that slip into the heel area of your shoe provide a simple solution for mild leg length variations. The tallest lift that should be used inside of a shoe is 1/2 inch or 12mm. Increments taller than 1/2 inch should be incorporated into the shoe's external components. Please refer to the Rx Shoe Lift section of this website for more information.
- The lift should be placed under the insole or custom orthotic in the shoe of the shorter leg.
- The lift adds length to the shorter leg to enhance body alignment for a better balanced gait.
- Heel lifts are available in five different height increments: 3mm = 1/8 inch, 5mm = 3/16 inch, 7mm = 1/4 inch, 9mm = 3/8 inch, 12mm = 1/2 inch
