Turns out I am not the only one with super poor ankle flexibility.
That looks like it’s about the same heel elevation I need at the moment (I squat with oly shoes + heels on small plates because of poor ankle flexibility).
Now where can I get these add ons? Does anybody of you use something similar?

I put 1cm cork heel inserts in my oly shoes have worked wonders! £5 on amazon!
I used to raise my heels with proheel orthotic inserts inside my shoes obtained cheaply from a physio shop… it worked well for a while but long term, I found it more beneficial for my lifting to improve my ankle flexibility.
Update: Rogue Has those Inov8 Heel Raisers in Stock. Might be worth a try.

Update: Lots of elevated heels have been spotted at the 2013 Worlds. See for example Bahador Moulaei’s shoes here.
