Soldier, if you are indeed a soldier try your dress uniform shoes sometime to squat in to see how you like the raised heel. I got the idea from a guy and gave it a try in mine and actually liked the way it felt. Just enough lift without a squishy sole. Looked kind of funky with my lifting clothes, but they gave me an idea of if I really wanted to go out and buy a pair of lifting shoes. I have not found anyone close to me who carries them, and hate to buy shoes off the net as I have a difficult time finding foot gear which fits me well.
I see you are in Ft. Hood, so I am guessing you are serving. If so, thanks for your service. I retired in 2010 from the military.
