It’s a Girl Thing: What is an Stiletto heel?
Women love shoes, there’s no doubt about it. A women can have an average of 3-5 kinds of shoes that she would use in different occasions. And one of them is shoes that has an Stiletto heel. So what’s an “stiletto heel”?
According 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.
