Shoe Lifts: Little Known Benefits

Hi my favorite readers! Wearing shoe lifts, whether they are noticeable or not, provides many benefits. It can be easy to focus on the negative, but what’s the point in that?

I previously wrote about being grateful for my 1.5 inch shoe lift. And..seeing that the post received such positive feedback, I thought I’d talk about […]

Gratitude For Shoe Lifts

Hi everyone! Some may think that wearing an orthopedic shoe lift is a hindrance. After all, not everyone wears one and the wearer could be on the receiving end of some strange looks. I know, I have worn an external 1.5″ version for 40 years. Part of my post-tkr includes adjusting my shoe lifts. […]

It […]

Note to Shoe Lift Wearers

Something interesting has been happening that I believe is worthy of sharing. If you wear an inch or greater shoe lift, beware. Those Velco closings do not work well on aquatic shoes known as water slides. And, I’m talking about the Velcro on a high-quality Speedo product, not some cheap brand. The Velcro easily […]

Making A Flip-Flop Shoe Lift

Since wearing a nearly 2” shoe lift makes life easier for me, I needed to come up with something that would work with my poolside flip-flops. Well…

I had an extra pair of black flip-flops (that term cracks me up for some reason…) that was just collecting dust. Since I replaced them with a more sturdier […]

Difficulties With Shoe Lifts After a TKR

HI everyone..Recently, I was asked why my shoe lift keeps changing. I don’t know why. The doctors do not know why.

Here’s the story:
For 30 years it was 1.25” due to a fractured femur I experienced after a car accident. Then, I had my tkr. As I wrote about in previous posts, I needed […]
