stiletto definition and meaning

What is a "stiletto"?

A stiletto is a type of high-heeled shoe with a thin, pointed heel that is typically taller than 3 inches. They are often made with a closed toe and may feature straps or buckles for support. Stilettos are considered to be dressy shoes and are often worn for formal occasions or events. They can be made from a variety of materials, including leather, suede, and synthetic fabrics. The thin heel of a stiletto requires the wearer to walk with a certain level of balance and poise, making them a challenging shoe to wear for extended periods of time or on uneven surfaces. However, their sleek and elegant appearance has made them a popular choice for those looking to add a touch of glamour to their wardrobe.
