Height of Heels

Can you name three essential things required for living? For me, it’s clothes, bags and shoes! I discovered my love for shoes (or I would say heels) recently and I am simply loving this feeling of falling in love all over again.

Out of love curiosity, I decided to compile a list of different types of heels. After lot of hard work and research, I found the following 13 types of heels.

Flat Heels   
1  1.       No Heel or Flat Heel – Flats are perfect for daily use. From flip-flops to flat ballerinas, you can find immense variety in flats. For years I have been an all flat girl and just recently stepped into the world of heels.

Low Heel
2.       Low Heel – Heel which is less than 2.5 inches is known as low heels. Low heels are pretty comfortable and best suitable for tall girls who can’t wear high heels!

Chunky Heel

3.       Chunky Heel – Chunky heels are high heels which are comparatively thick. These heels are comfortable to wear and meant for girls who don’t find stiletto heels easy.

Kitten Heel

4.       Kitten Heel - A kitten heel is a short, slender heel, usually from 3.5 centimeters (1.5 inches) to 4.75 centimeters (1.75 inches) high with a slight curve setting the heel in from the edge of the shoe.

Stiletto Heel

5.       Stiletto Heel – It is a long, thin and high heel named after stiletto dagger.

Cone Heel

6.       Cone Heel – Cone heels are broad when they meet the sole and narrow down near the bottom.

Spool Heel

7.       Spool Heel - A spool heel is a heel that is wide at the top and bottom and narrower in the middle, so resembling a cotton reel.

Wedge Heel

8.       Wedge Heel - Wedge boots or wedgies are boots with a sole in the form of a wedge so that one piece of material, normally rubber, serves as both the sole and the heel. Wedge boots are more common for women and often have a sole that is much thicker at the back than the front, making it a high-heel shoe or boot.

Louis Heel

9.       Louis Heel - Women's shoes with a curved, medium-high heel are known as Louis or French heels.

Platform Heel
1   10.   Platform Heel - Platform shoes (also known as disco boots) are shoes, boots, or sandals with thick soles at least four inches in height. They are often made of cork, plastic, rubber, or wood (wooden-soled platform shoes are, technically, also clogs). Platform shoes have been worn, for reasons such as fashion or added height, in various cultures since the Ancient era.

Prism Heel

11.   Prism Heel -

Puppy Heel

12.   Puppy Heel 

13.   Cuban Heel

Can you name any type of heel that I forgot to cover?

PS: I did a shoe haul recently. I will be putting up the pictures real soon...
