Luckily, your hope-he’s-clever columnist has already researched this subject. First of all, stiletto heels are a famous style of sexy (albeit sometimes impractical) women’s shoes. Stiletto heels are thin, long high heels that are found on some women’s’ shoes and even boots.

They have an interesting story too.  The origins of the name are sketchy however it’s believed that the heel was named after the stiletto knife and harkens back to the 1930s. Perhaps what is most interesting is that not all stiletto heels are the same length.

Statistically-speaking, a stiletto heel can be as short as 1 inch or as long as 10 plus inches if the sole of the shoe is a platform. There diameter can be as little as half an inch. Sources indicate that shoes with stiletto heels that are 5 centimeters or less in length are referred to as kitten heels.

Furthermore, sources indicate that all high slim heels are not stiletto heels. History shows that during the 1950s and even the 1960s the original Italian stiletto heel had a diameter of 5 millimeters for the majority of their length and often flared out at the top. Sometime after 1965 stiletto heels became more difficult to find in shoe stores. True stiletto heels have a stem of steel or some type of allow.

Stiletto heels also create a fashion illusion. Stiletto heels make a woman’s legs appear to be slimmer. They also make a woman appear to be taller and to make her feet seem smaller. In fact, wearing stiletto heels also changes a lady’s gait as well as her posture.

They cause a woman to flex her calf muscles as well. All of this makes the woman’s buttocks and bust more noticeable. Today true stilettos are no longer as commonly available as methods of mass production no longer allow for the creation of a true stiletto heel shape.

Most recently, heels have also been scientifically proven to be perceived as sexy and to be able to hold an influence over men. (If you missed that article—shame on you!)

These classic shoes not only flatter women who can wear them but influence men and to an extent pop culture as well. They are even featured in film and song. Stiletto heels have definitely left an impression (. . . especially on men who like women to walk on them). Ah, but that’s a subject for another edition.
