Hi! Has anyone had experience taking a pair of high heels to a cobbler and getting the heel cut down? I’ve hear they can only cut a max of 1/2″ and can only cut the heel if they do not have a steel rod in them.
I have a pair of Badgley Mischka’s with a 3″ heel that is fine for walking, I’m just worrying about stanging in them during the ceremony. I’m wondering if shortening the heel would be a good option, otherwise I’ll just wear them for photos and switch to lower heels or flats before the ceremony.

let me know what you find. I bought a pair I love but they are just TOO high for a whole wedding day. I was wondering the same thing!

Picture your toes turning up like cartoon feet. That’s why you can’t take off more that 1/2″ or so.
A high heel is balanced when constructed to have a certain specific relationship with the toe of the shoe.

No you can’t do that. The pitch or angle of the shoe is constructed to fit the heel height.

Mrs.Vanilla : Please let me know what you did? i have a pair of bradley michkas that are also way too high for comfort.

Mrs.Vanilla : this seems like it would be problematic – as you would also then need to change the angle of the entire footbed. i’d just get shoes that fit and are comfortable as-is. i wore the badgley mischka dara wedge, fwiw.

I have had heels shortened. The OP is correct. The maximum is 1/2″.
