A Cuban Heel is a broad heel that is angled at the back, straight in the front, and tapers to a slightly narrower base. A Cuban heel is of moderate height and the base is fairly broad. Cuban heels are found on many styles of men's and women's shoes including boots, sandals, and pumps. A famous example of Cuban heels is the style of chelsea boots worn by the Beatles in the 60's. Cuban heels are sometimes referred to as Latin heels, as well.
Pumps are heeled shoes that are typically tapered to a point or a narrow square toe. The upper of a pump covers the heel and sides of the foot, leaving the top of the foot exposed, which allows the wearer to slip on the shoe.
Trotters Jamie Disappointed in fit and quality

I was looking for a low heeled closed toe shoe that I could wear with slacks that was comfortable but not clunky looking. When the shoes arrived, I thought these fit the bill. They seemed tight at first. I almost sent them back for a larger size. I'm glad I didn't as they quickly stretched and would flop off my heel. I clumped when I walked to the point where my husband was making jokes about the noise. The elastic straps were not firm enough to keep them in place. I'd never dance in them. The leather started wrinkling badly across the toes. Then the heel cap fell off one of the shoes. I've super-glued it back on this time but now the leather is frayed now around the cap. I don't know if the heel cap will stay on and it looks like the soles are going to wear through soon. I don't wear these for walking and they aren't exposed to salt or snow here in Florida. I just wear them mostly in my office and might stop at the grocery on the way home. They haven't been abused. I remember buying Old Maine Trotters years ago and the quality was good. Wonder where these are made now? I just bought these in November and it's early March now. I have shoes I have been wearing for 10 years that are in better shape. Maybe shoes were better made back then.

I like the Doris because I can wear it anywhere. It looks great with slacks or a dress. It fit a little snug when I first wore it but is very comfortable now. I was happy to find Shoe Buy because they handle AAA shoes which are hard to find.
