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.
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.

I was surprised to the fit and style of these shoes. I got mine in silver but will defintely order them in gold as well. I have not worn pretty shoes for so many years because of needing an 11W and attractive shoes in this size are very hard to find. I have had so many compliments and so many of my friends have noticed that I am wearing dressy heels again. These go with so many outfits and I am very, very happy with them.
