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.

These are high quality and very comfortable for how high they are. They have a lot of stability. Very attractive with pants or a skirt.

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.
