Footwear on the mat

Hello!

Has anyone found a type of shoe/pad they can wear on the mat which is reasonably acceptable? I have been having severe hip problems for the past couple of years which has been keeping me off the mat more than a tiny bit, and it looks like a large part of the problem has to do with different leg lengths. As such, I now wear an insert in my shoe and it helps quite a bit. I am wondering if anyone has worn a lift on the mat, and if so, how they have gone about it?

While this is not a cure, it might make training possible again so I am willing to give it a go if the CI doesn't mind.

Best, Rachel
