High Heel Styles

High heels come in a wide variety of shapes and heights and feature different details like ankle strap heels, open toe or closed toes and cut out heels with unique designs.

Some of the most popular types of high heel shoes include:

  • Stiletto heels

  • Kitten heels

  • Peep toe heels

  • Cone heels

  • Pumps

  • Wedge heels

  • Platform heels

Other common high heel styles are comma heels, flare heels and espadrille heels. Heels can also come in the style of boots such as ankle booties or thigh high boots.

Stiletto Heels

Stilettos are the highest of all heels with a long, thin high heel. Stiletto is an Italian word that comes from the Latin root stilus.

They are named after a weapon, which resembles the same short dagger with a tapered blade. Present day stilettos often vary in size and height and are commonly worn to elevate a look for a date night or fancy event.

Kitten Heels

Kitten heels are a type of stiletto with short heels that are usually only about an inch or two in height. The style is credited to be popularized by Audrey Hepburn.

Kitten heels are easy to wear as an everyday shoe, younger women or for beginners since they don’t have a very high heel height. Many women wear kitten heels to work or with their everyday outfits.

Peep Toe Heels

Peep toe heels come in a variety of styles, usually a pump, bootie or slingback heel that feature a small opening at the toe area that allows the tip of the toes to show. These heels are typically worn as a dressier shoe.

Cone Heels

Cone heels are a type of heel that get wider at the top and narrower at the bottom, towards the toes. They were given the name cone heels because of their cone-like shape.

These heels have a pointed toe with a sturdy base and come in a variety of heights and styles. Cone heels are considered versatile and timeless.


Pumps are one of the most commonly worn shoes by women. They are wider than other heels, low around the front and usually about 2 or 3 inches in height, although they can vary.

Wedge Heels

Wedge heels are characterized by their unique heel shape. They have a heel that is in the shape of a wedge and have no separation from the heel to the toe.

They come in a variety of designs and heights and typically are easier to walk in than other styles of heels.

Platform Heels

Platform heels have a very thick sole, or heel that sets them apart from other heels. They are said to be more comfortable than some other styles of heels since the heel is thicker.
