What are the differences between Heel Lifts and Height Increasing Insoles?

We at NuovaHealth are often asked about the differences between the Gel Heel Lifts and the Height Increasing Insoles in our height increase range of products. In this article we aim to answer some of the common questions we get asked so you can make a better informed purchase decision.

What are Gel Heel Lifts?

The silicone gel heel lifts are more versatile and adjustable than the height increasing insoles allowing a more precise height increase. You simply stack as many layers as you want to achieve the desired height you need. Each layer adds 7mm to your height; in a pack you get 5 layers which equal 35mm or 1.5 inches in added height. Buy an extra pair and you can stack the layers even higher for an added height gain of 3 inches.

The Gel heel lifts are ideal for leg length discrepancy (where one leg is shorter than the other.) The gel heel lifts are ideal because of the precise way in which you can adjust the height.

The gel heel lifts are also ideal for small shoes that are too small for the height increasing insoles, they will fit all your shoes and trainers and you can adjust them so the heel lift fits snugly inside the shoe instead of being constrained by lack of space.

What are the best heel lifts to buy?

What are Height Increasing Insoles?

Height increasing insoles are designed to be more comfortable than the gel heel lifts and are more substantial and solid. They are also designed to last. However these advantages are reduced by the fact that they are not as adjustable as the gel heel lifts as there are only 2 layers but those 2 layers allow for a respectable 2 inches gained in height. Due to the lack of adjustability height increasing insoles are not recommended for leg length discrepancy. Height increasing insoles also take more room in the shoe and so are only recommended for larger footwear like boots.

However it must be reiterated that the Height Increasing Insoles are the best quality product, offering superior comfort and more of a lift.

For medical conditions such as leg length discrepancy we recommend the heel lifts. We also recommend the heel lifts for everyday trainers and shoes where there is not a lot of room for the feet. The height increasing insoles offer superior comfort and added increase in height but lack in adjustability and should only be worn with boots with plenty of room for the feet. We recommend trying the heel lifts at first and if you enjoy them you may want to invest in the height increasing insoles for your boots.
