Overview

High heels are a type of footwear that are commonly worn by women. The shoe is designed to have a normal fit around the toes, but to have a rising middle area, followed with a high spike, or heel. High Heel shoes come in different styles and forms, but the most common and easy brackets for fitting the designs into are:

  • Stilettos: Extremely high and thin heeled shoes. These are most commonly associated with more ' sexualised women', though this is not always the case.
  • Wedge: The wedge design for a heeled shoe is more prevalent for a sandal, but they do exist for standard shoes. In short, a wedge has the 'gap' between the front of a shoe and the heel filled in with a large wedge.
  • Pump: Pump shoes are the most common form of high heels, and they are also known as court shoes. Regardless, they are a standard design along with a heel.

Despite all the arguments associated with high heels, they remain a popular form of footwear for women. High heels can make women appear taller, and this is part of their main appeal. Along with this, they are a frequently sexualized item, and can make women look hotter and more appealing to men.

In-Games

Generally, high heels are occasionally worn in games by some women. They are not worn by all women, however, and are occasionally used for sexualized women. Depending on the game, high heels can occasionally be purchased to customise a female character.
