Heel heights measurement for women’s shoes

Last Updated on

Shoe Heel heights are measured by lying the shoe on a flat working surface and measuring the heel from the bottom to the high.

On the website, we have put our shoes into 4 different heel height categories – High, Mid, Low and Flat. Refer to the chart to provide an idea of how high the shoe could be. Please make use of the chart as a basic guide only as sizes do differ from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Block heel

Block heels are usually high or short but they are generally square and also have a more sturdy, chunkier layout. If you are seeking a sensible higher heel to use all day, block heels, as well as wedge heeled shoes, are highly recommended.
