Hello!

It will increase your child’s height from 1 inch to 2 inches. Some shoe lifts can easily be trimmed to fit different shape of shoes. Proper shoe lifts can turn any shoes to height increasing shoes. Shoe lifts also reduces foot fatigue and joint pain, absorbs impact and improves comfort.

The disadvantage is that you cannot guarantee that the leg length difference can be completely cured.  Huge leg length defects cannot be corrected.

Take care!
