Heel height trusses are one of the most important aspects of maintaining a good posture. Unfortunately, many people suffer from heel height truss problems due to bad habits or medical conditions. The good news is that there are solutions available to fix these issues. In this blog post, we will discuss the different ways you can fix heel height truss problems and how they can help improve your posture and overall health. Read on to learn more!

What is truss and heel height?

Heel height is the distance from the floor to the back of the foot. The truss is the part of the shoe that supports the arch of the foot. The heel height and truss work together to provide support and stability for the foot.

When shopping for shoes, it is important to pay attention to both heel height and truss. Heel height should be comfortable for you and your lifestyle. If you are constantly on your feet, a higher heel might not be ideal. The truss should provide support for your foot type. If you have high arches, look for a shoe with a higher truss.

How to measure heel height?

There are a few things you’ll need in order to measure heel height: a ruler or measuring tape, something to mark the measurement with (chalk, a pen, etc.), and of course, the heel itself. Here’s how to do it:

1. Place the heel on a flat surface. If the heel is too big to fit on your work surface, you can use a shoe last or something similar.

2. Use the ruler or measuring tape to measure the height of the heel from the top of the heel (where it meets the foot) to the bottom edge.

3. Mark the measurement with your chosen marking tool.

4. Repeat steps 2-3 for each heel you want to measure.

2 ways to try: 
1. Try using a pair of heel lifts or heel pads to even out the height difference between your two shoes.

2. If the heeltruss is too pronounced, you can build up the sole of the lower shoe with a cobbler’s kit that includes materials such as leather, foam and rubber to raise the other shoe to match the higher one.

3. You can also use a tool called an orthotic wedge to fill in any gaps between your feet and the ground due to an uneven heel truss.

4. If you have an adjustable heeltruss platform, try adjusting it so that both heels are at the same level.

5. Another option is to buy a pair of insoles with arch support or cushioning specifically designed for correcting heel truss issues.

If your heel height truss is too high or low, you can easily adjust it by following these steps:

1. Place a level on the floor next to the truss.

2. Adjust the height of the jack until the level is level with the top of the truss.

3. Tighten the nuts on the jack until they are secure.

4. Check that the truss is level from front to back and side to side.

5. If necessary, repeat steps 2-4 until the truss is level.


Fixing a heel height truss is not difficult, and with the right tools, anyone can do it. All you need to do is remove the broken or damaged pieces of metal from the shoe, replace them with new ones and make sure that everything fits securely in place. With a few simple steps, your shoes will be back to looking as good as new! Additionally, knowing how to fix a heel height truss can save you both time and money in the long run by avoiding costly visits to cobblers or shoemakers who may charge more for their services.
