hey i just joined to pick ur brains, im a photographer, doing a cyberpunk shoot, and for this i need, the model to wear a boot on one foot a shoe on the other, now ive found the perfect heeled shoe


this boot

seem too tall.

My question is, would a cobbler be able to lower the height of the boot, so that when the girl stands in them, they wont be uneven?

and if so what would the cost be?

thankl you for your time, if you can answer this it would be great

conventional answers to this questions are,
No, you can't mess with the original height.

another answer could be, it depends that you know that it is not advisable, and doing so, could cause damage to the boot, or your back/etc if done.

the next comment/answer is: if you are just going to be using it for the Photo shoot, and not much walking is involved, you could do it...then when done, have the other boot shortend to match.

Many shops say no! to changing the structure of the heel, which changes the angle of the heel, and could effect the arch/shank, etc.

In my shop, I do, shorten heels but I always tell customers all the above.
