Compensating for leg length difference

My one leg is 1/2 inch shorter than the other. When I buy shoes, I have a shoemaker build up the shoe heel for the shorter foot by the 1/2 inch.

Last week, I took a new pair of shoes to the shoemaker. He suggested that instead of adding 1/2 an inch to one shoe heel, that he add 1/4 inch to that heel and take 1/4 inch off the other heel.

This sounds logical, that is, raise my shorter foot by 1/4 inch, and lower my longer foot by 1/4 inch.

BUT, is this alternative okay to use rather than just making the 1/2 inch adjustment on my shorter leg?
