I just can't wear high heels. It seems like all the pretty shoes today have sky high heels.

Is it possible to have a high heel boot or shoe resoled with a lower heel? Maybe start with a cute boot with a 3" heel, remove the heel and whole sole if necessary, then replace it with a 2 or 2-1/2" heel?  And if it is possible, where and how would I start?

The impossible takes a bit longer.

Simply put: no. Most shoes and boots are designed around the heel height, so the rest of the shoe has to follow. Check out how your foot conforms to the shoe when you wear a higher heel. That's because your foot is animate - you can change its shape. You can't do that with a boot or shoe that's already been made. Oh sure, you can put a lower heel on in place of a higher one, but it won't look good and it would probably be impossible to wear. Darned uncomfortable, since the shoe is shaped for the higher heel. That's the physics of the issue.

If you really wanted to do it, you'd find the time.
