"Heels" typically refer to a type of footwear that has a raised heel, usually taller than the toe. They are often worn by women, but men can also wear heels. Heels can come in many different styles, such as pumps, stilettos, wedges, and block heels. They can be made from various materials, including leather, suede, and synthetic materials. Heels are often worn to dress up an outfit, add height, and create a more feminine look. However, they can also be uncomfortable to wear for long periods and can cause foot and back pain if not worn properly.
