"Heel" can refer to both the rear, padded area of the underside of the foot, as well as the solid part of a shoe that supports the heel cup. The standard measure for heel heights is as follows: an 8/8 (low heel) is 1" high; a 16/8 (medium heel) is 2" high; and a 24/8 (high heel) is 3" high. Types of shoe heels include: Baby Louis - The same shape as a Louis heel, but a 12/8 or shorter. Built Heel - Created from layers of leather or fiber with contrasting tones. Continental - A higher heel with a slightly curved back and flat front. Cuban - A thick, stacked heel with little or no curvature and tapered at the bottom; usually medium in height. Louis or French - Features a curved back; ranges in height from 16/8 to 24/8. Stacked - Similar to the built heel, but typically can be created from synthetic and leather materials. Often found on spectator shoes. Wedge - A heel that is as wide as the shoe itself and follows the shoes contour from toe to heel. May be of any height.
