Stilettos Heels

The allure of the Stiletto Heel

What woman doesn’t feel more feminine when walking in stilettos?  They make you walk with a purpose – you have to step carefully lest you land in a sidewalk crack or grating in the pavement – and they make a killer sound.  Face it, clogs and platforms can’t quite compare with the sound of stilettos clicking across the floor.

Stiletto heel

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

A shoe with a stiletto heel

A stiletto heel is a long, thin, high heel found on some boots and shoes, usually for women.

It is named after the stiletto dagger, the phrase being first recorded in the early 1930s.[1] Stiletto heels may vary in length from 2.5 centimetres (1 inch) to 25 cm (10 inches) or more if a platform sole is used, and are sometimes defined as having a diameter at the ground of less than 1 cm (slightly less than half an inch). Stiletto-style heels 5 cm (2.0 in) or shorter are called kitten heels.

Not all high slim heels merit the description stiletto. The extremely slender original Italian-style stiletto heels of the late 1950s and very early 1960s were no more than 5 mm (0.20 in) in diameter for much of their length, although the heel sometimes flared out a little at the top-piece (tip). After their demise in the mid-late 1960s, such slender heels were difficult to find until recently due to changes in the way heels were mass-produced. A real stiletto heel has a stem of solid steel or alloy. The more usual method of mass-producing high shoe heels, i.e. moulded plastic with an internal metal tube for reinforcement, does not achieve the true stiletto shape.  Read more…
