Talking about Heels
At a recent event, while talking about footwear with women of all ages and sections a sudden realization was that how we all want to speak smart however most are smeared with misinformation. Here I take you through a journey on types of heels and where do they work the best.
- Kitten Heels
With these I love the style for the comfort and the fashion mix. They’re great for parties or work events where you don’t need the extra height but will be on your feet for awhile. A good to go for every women and I suggest as a must have.
Also known as simply high heels, pumps are usually wider and between 2 and 3 inches in height. They’re typically low cut around the front. Another recommendation for your wardrobe however for women with foot ache, try before you buy.
The highest of all the high heels, stilettos can reach up to 8 inches. While these heights can cause problems walking for many, it’s a worthy for the lengthening effect they have on one’s legs. Note: many stilettos are also platforms due to the height (see below for platforms).
- Ankle Strap Heels
The height of the heel can vary, but the one common denominator is the strap that goes around the ankle, making the heels more secure and comfortable to walk in.
- Cone Heels: Wider at the sole of the foot and narrower at the base, cone heels form what you might expect: a cone. Just picture an ice cream cone on the bottom of your shoe. Disclaimer: while we know you love your shoe collection, please try not to eat them. Up for a formal event where you may need to be on your feet, try these for a go.
- Sling Back Heels
Unlike ankle strap heels, the sling back heel just has a strap that goes around the back of the achilles heel. This provides a more elegant look while still achieving the function of stabilization.
- Platform Heels
You can see platform heels from short to tall. The main thing that makes them platform is the part of the shoe under the sole is thicker. This makes the higher heels more comfortable because there’s less of a height differential between the back and front of the foot. A relief form aching feet I must say!!!
- High Heel Sandals
With varying heights, a high heel sandal is anything that has any of the heel types listed here (high, stiletto, kitten), but with a sandal upper.
- Cork High Heels
These heels simply refer to the cork material used to make them. They can vary in height and style, but the cork material makes for a softer, more cushioned step.
- Spool Heels
If you think of a spool of thread, you may understand the concept of spool heels. The heel is thicker at the sole of the foot, narrow in the middle, and then comes back out at the base. Quite comfortable for a walk, they give you a balance and also works for that in the wet garden party
- French Heels
Also known as Louis Heels or Pompador Heels, these are similar to spool heels wherein they are short but have some curve to the heel.
- Chunky Heels
This is the general term for any heel with a wider base that is typically square. They’re usually on the short to medium side, and provide more stability than traditional high heels or stilettos.
- Comma Heels
Think of the comma. Yes, we’re referring to the punctuation mark. Now line that up with the heel of a shoe, and you have a comma heel! Very unusual kind and not that in fashion these days, just wait and watch for them to come back in trend.
- Fantasy Heels
Here’s the wildcard heel type to cover all of the crazy designs out there. There are so many types of heels you could never think of in your head, and yet they do exist. We’re not sure who wears them other than maybe Lady Gaga, but they do exist.
- Wedge Heels
There are two different types of wedge shoes: wedge heels and wedge sandals. Wedge heels are flush just like a high heel would be, and there is no separation from the heel to the sole. An effect here is that they make your foot look large. So petite women beware of using these as they may overpower your physique.
- Wedge Sandals
While they have the same type of heel as a wedge heel, wedge sandals have a more open, sandal upper. Go for it girls, they are comfy, stylish and ready for any occasion.
- High Heeled Boots
These pair well under or over jeans or even with a skirt or dress, may come in variety of heel types but wwith a boot tucked above them.
- Ankle Booties
A return from the old era these boots are a comeback in style for winters or rains and even spring where high boots might look overdone. Gran them in neutrals and flaunt at every casual meet.
