Why Elevator Shoes are Better Than Platform Shoes

Walking, running, hiking, dancing are some of the enjoyable activities you engage in while on your feet. Therefore it is essential that you wear appropriate footwear to take care of your feet when engaged in some of these strenuous yet thoroughly enjoyable activities. If you happen to be of average height and are wearing platform shoes to gain height, some of these activities may cause grievous injury to your feet and other parts of the body. These shoes are constructed with abnormally high outer soles. Sometimes you spend as much as 75% — 80% of your waking hours on your feet; this puts enormous strain on your feet as your body is continuously trying to maintain balance.

These shoes tend to slide or move your foot forward thus increasing the chances of you getting corns, calluses and bunions. In extreme cases you may suffer from hammertoes. Regular use of these shoes results in the shortening of the Achilles tendon making it vulnerable to injuries. Recurrent backaches have also been associated with these shoes. Since the foot moves forward in a platform shoe painful conditions like bleeding and infections under the toenails cannot be ruled out.

Elevator shoes are specially constructed with a 1 — 3 inch insole inside the shoe. The insole is made from tough yet shock absorbent material. Since the elevator shoe top and front is made after factoring in the height of the inbuilt insole, the shoe firmly grips the foot and prevents it from sliding or moving forward like it would in a platform. Elevators are made of good quality leather that is comfortable and molds to the shape of your feet. The flexibility of the platforms is limited due to design and material constraints. The soles of platforms are rigid and do not flex like the soles of elevators.

Elevator shoes offer more comfort and style than outdated platform shoes, however, remember to buy them from reputed manufacturers only.
