Getting used for your lift shoes But this brings me to the major point. Breaking in your elevators. Even though, like me, you wore lifts for years before buying your lifts, the principal problem is that you have to go USED to elevators that are wearing and I discovered that with this you need a bit of a strategy. It is so simple and it has worked with everybody I have advised. You walk around just getting used to the different standpoint. You definitely will FEEL far taller — that fridge door handle and top will probably seem almost’distinct’ (in a great way). You then go for a walk in London where I am based, this usually means taking the dog for a walk, or even going to local shop or the newsagents, walking into a bar but not hanging round inside. The reason for this timing is that you do not need to return after an enforced 4 hours at a new pair of boots thinking”that was terrible”. You probably will not anyway, and this could be just felt by you about ANY shoes you purchase in the local shoe shop. But these are special and you need to become accustomed. They key to this brief walk is that you are in control — you may set the time you are out, which you can not do if you decide to go out with mates and it becomes a long 6 hours in the bar you can’t get out of once you have started. Do this three or two times and you are ready, because you will for sure have got used to walking into them — and just to be sure, just do a trip involving stuff that is not drawn out. A night with some mates in a bar or bar you know will finish in a few hours, some time. Whatever. Currently a lot of this depends upon how high you’ve gone. I went a bit wild and straight for 5″ elevators. But I had had years of elevator sporting before so was utilized to lots of it the main factor for me was that they had been the most comfortable boots I had worn in YEARS. OK, I couldn’t operate in 5″ elevators. OK I have to be a bit more cautious about jagged surfaces. OK, I did not really want walk for hours or stand all day (but I couldn’t even do that when I wasn’t wearing any lifts or elevators at age 17!) . But every inch lower than the complete on 5″ is easier to finesse and walk easily — and a set of 3.1″ (8cm) elevators, well they actually are a cinch after a little of walking-in… just SO easy to become used to.
