@Pinkmoon:  I have had heels shortened but was told that the maximum they could take off without ruining the way the shoe worked, was 1/2″.

i’ve never heard of heeel shortening.  but good to know.  something to keep in mind since i don’t like wearing very high heels  (though I am 5 feet exactly)

I wouldn’t do this.  It throws off the balance of the shoe.  Just look for something flat.

@Pinkmoon:  I agree with PP that I wouldn’t attempt this.  If you shorten the heel, the top portion of the shoe would tip up, unless you also fix the slope of the sole portion of the shoe…  It will most likely cost more money to fix than a new pair of flats.
