I t feels a bit like wearing high heels, as my heel is higher than my toes. They look nice and I can't tell from the outer appearance that they aren't regular shoes. They are significantly longer than my other dress shoes; not sure if they will look strange. I haven't worn them outside or for long periods yet, so that part is unknown. I'm thinking that they may take a little getting accustomed to, with perhaps some calf muscle change, but that doesn't seem to be an issue for me.
I must point out, however, that the 2.8 inches taller must mean 2.8 inches taller than if I were standing barefoot. I measured my height both with my regular shoes and these and there is a difference of about 1.5 inches, not 2.8 inches. I also measured both my old shoes and these by the posterior point of the heel and the difference is also 1.5 inches. Had I known this, I likely would have selected a model with greater height increasing.
