Definition: What are High Heels?

Info by Lipstick | 2013-01-25 at 11:49

Many people are already describing shoes with the most minimal heel as high heels. But are these shoes really high enough to go through as high heels? In this information, I want to tackle this issue and concern with the definition of high heels. From when is a shoe worthy to be called high heel?

Only the height of the heel counts

The definition of high heels actually includes only one thing: a heel of at least 10 centimeters. Regardless of the shoes are boots, pumps, wedges, platform sandals, closed or open - whenever the shoe in question has a heel of at least 10 centimeters, we can label the shoes high heels.

Important: We have to measure the difference in height between the front and the rear part of the foot. Thus, for example, we can not call platform shoes with a 10 centimeter platform high heels, if they have the same height at the front and the rear.
