Can height increasing shoe lifts cause foot problems?

Hello, i was thinking of buying some [url=http://nuovahealth.co.uk/shop/gel-height-increase-heel-lifts/‎]height increasing heel lifts insoles[/url] which are basically like these shoe lifts....sometimes even called heel lifts (dont ask me why they got so many names lol) anyway they are meant to increase your height and have built in orthotics do you reckon they are safe to wear?

Will the built in orthotics help prevent discomfort or pain?

Thanks

I tried that to help with my flat foot, to take some pressure of the posterior tibial tendon. The lift strained my Achilles' tendon pretty badly! I can't say that would happen to anyone else though. My feet are REALLY messed up!
