stiletto heelAccording to Wikipedia,

A stiletto heel (American English: spike heel) is a long, thin 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.  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)

I have several pair of office shoes that have stiletto heels but their height is only about 2.5-3 inches.
