Somehow I always referred to them as Cuban, but turns out that there are some classifications out there when it comes to reinforced heels.

Can you tell each type of heel apart?

There was recently a nice article explaining the difference done by Gigi’s Intimates, an online store that specializes in vintage-look stockings by Cervin and Gio.

Perhaps it would be nice to know how such heels got their names, but for now, have a look at some instructions on how to tell which one is which.
