I've made 10 new meshed for higher heeled shoes.
As these do not replace the original meshes, it should be a download for everyone :-)

It is:
1. The thigh high shoes have gotten a platform
2. Kneeboot with platform
3. Kneeboot with slightly higher heel
4. Strappy sandals with High heel
5. Strappy sandal with platform
6. High heeled court shoe
7. Very high heeled court shoe
8. Increased heel on open toe pump
9. Increased heel on strappy open toe pump
10. The ankle boots got a higher heel.

Unfortunately the textures are the same of the original shoes, but you can change colors in CAS.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Any chance you could rename the files something that makes more sense so we can pick and choose the ones we want? Also, are these different from your other shoe pack or not?

These are fantastic, thanks! Any chance you could rename the files? I generally like to pick-and-choose what content I use, and it's hard to do that with a bunch of numbers and letters :/

Great shoes! Could you please separate files or rename better so we can pick and choose the ones we like. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent work, but I agree with the comments on naming. It is better if a description of the item used in the package name.

I like most of these shoes. They're really well made. But I have a problem with how they show seams at the ankles of some of them. With the default shoes, in the transition from flats to heels, the skintone is virtually flawless. No seam. But if I then change to your version, there's an ugly seam problem which can be seen most readily from the side/back. Have you noticed this? Is there any way to correct this? I assume it's an issue with the texture mapping?

Also, I don't love all of them. And I'd like to know which package files are which. Some of them I'd like to delete permanently. But, really, most of these are nice. And I'd love to have them in my game. For now, I'll try to single out the ones I can't live without, and then make do. But, I'd really like the seams to disappear, if possible.

I also noticed the seams. That looks really weird. I hope this can be fixed.

Yeah it can be fixed but it means lower heels... The first ones I made had really nasty seams. But I've tried to minimize the flaw without compromising the heel height. Now its not noticable in game play, but you will see it in CAS if you look for it.
