If you ever heard your sweetheart talking about the “best-ever” slides, stilettos, or marry janes, you may want to make friends with different types of shoes and shoe terminology.
Short stilettos or kitten heels were popularized by the British actress Audrey Hepburn. They are a step-sister of the stilettos and feature slender, short heels. Stacked heels are another variety and a type of casual footwear. They are usually beige or brown in color and the heel is made of layers of wood which are sandwiched together.
Wedges and platforms are popular women’s shoes. Wedges come in different varieties such as strappy wedges, espadrille wedges, and wedge sandals. They are often decorated with jute or cork. Platforms come with built-up soles, and there are platform sandals, boots, and shoes. In addition to these varieties, there are slingbacks, mules, pumps (court shoes), and ballet flats. “Cute shoes” is a phrase that shows you which pair of shoes a woman really wants to have.
Whether your girlfriend or wife loves wedges, slides, or kitten heels, buying her a pair of shoes will give her closet a lift. Leading footwear designers offer a variety of shoes for women, including Sergio Rossi, Jimmy Choo, and Christian Louboutin.
