Heels are shoes featuring an incline on the heel. Heels could be a separate piece from the outsole or a wedge heel that runs the entire length of the outsole. The heel provides elevation and can be found in many different shapes, including block, tapered, blade, and wedge. Heels can also be many different heights such as kitten heel, stilleto heel, low heel, mid heel or high heel.
Quilted footwear, luggage and apparel articles incorporate fabrics with details and characteristics of a quilt; mainly the stitches that form a series of padded compartments; which are added as a decorative detail or for insulation. Quilted footwear is more commonly worn during cold weather months.
