Elevator shoes are shoes that have thickened sections of the insoles (known as lifts) and
known as Height Increase shoes under the heels to make the wearer appear taller, or "elevate" them as the name suggests.
An elevator shoe, like the platform shoe's heel can be made from different soles like plastic, wood, or rubber. There are some elevator shoes that increase the height of a wearer by 2.6" to 3.2" and even by up to 4".
Unlike high-heeled shoes, the component of elevator shoes that increases the wearer's height is inside the shoe, hiding it from observers. Shoes with thickened soles are also used in cases of orthopaedic problems, although the term elevator shoe is not usually used for these.
Also referred to as lift shoes or height-increasing shoes, from the outside, elevator shoes look like any other footwear. They may have a heel, but it is not excessively high - it just looks like an average heel on an average shoe.
Inside the shoe and positioned under the foot, is a raised platform or sole that invisibly adds height to the shoe, giving the wearer the appearance of being taller.
While these types of shoes are available for women and guys, there are many more options in this type of footwear for men than there are for women. Presumably this is because off-the-rack women's footwear offers more heel options.
