Even out walking boot

I'm in my seventh week post op in a walking boot. I had ankle fused in 2 spots and a big toe plate for fusion there too, and a tendon pulled up. Any suggestions for evening out the height between the high walking boot and the tennis shoes? I have an arch support in both my walking shoes and my tennis shoes. I am using crutches with trying to bear some weight on the surgery foot. Has anyone worn 2 walking boots to even out the high and low? Has anyone worn a heel on the non walking boot foot. I have an implant in my nonsurgical big toe, (from 8 years ago) so a heel would hurt that implant. Thanks for any suggestions.
