What does effective heel height mean?

Warm weather calls for platform sandals and we are loving new arrivals TESTRA115 and SYDENY110 because they are so comfortable and easy to wear. The secret is all in the platform unit, which lowers the effective heel height giving the wearer support with style.

Effective heel height refers to how much the shoe actually elevates your foot versus the physical height of the wedge or heel itself.

For example, a sandal like TESTRA115 has an 115 mm block heel but a platform of 30 mm so your foot is only inclined 85 mm.
