Looking for shoes with a 13mm (approx) drop - for wearing about town

I am in the UK and looking for shoes with a 13mm (approx) drop - for wearing about town. I need the drop or else my achilles tendons inflame.

I found Brookes running shoes that have a drop, but I can't find anywhere selling 'about town' shoes that have a drop.

If I can't find any ready-made shoes, I might consider having a pair made, so add that if you know of a good shoemaker.

About town is a little vague, what in terms of appearance are you looking for?

Many if not most boots with visible heels have high drops like that. I have a pair of rock port chukkas with a drop in that zone. You could also try outdoor /adventure stores, shoes by keen, columbia, some merrels etc with have higher drop boots.

if sneakers/trainers, some weightlifting shoes have higher heels than normal shoes.

Another option to consider is putting small heel lifts in your shoes to give you the 13 mm heel drop you are looking for.

Thanks @smoke - By 'About town' I mean not sneakers - something like a dress shoe in leather. Something I can wear with a suit.

In that case yes I would check out rockport and ecco shoes, you should find something you like. :)
