Civilians unfamiliar with U.S. Air Force Honor Guard protocol might think that heel cheaters are used merely as a way to “sweeten” the sound made when Guard members click their heels together. But while this is undoubtedly true, it overlooks the fact that heel clicks are used to communicate directions for different sequences and maneuvers, and it is imperative that all members of the unit are able to hear and clearly distinguish distinct heel clicks during formal and often solemn ceremonies.

Our heel cheaters help ensure that heel clicks are heard loud and clear. They are easily secured to the sides of dress-shoe heels with glue and screws in a matter of minutes, and touchups with black nail polish are all that’s required to give them a new, professional appearance and prevent corrosion.
