A heel is the projection at the back of a shoe which rests below the heel bone. The shoe heel is used to improve the balance of the shoe or for decorative purposes. Sometimes raised, the high heel is common to a form of shoe often worn by women but sometimes by men too. The high heel is sometimes supposed to originally have been invented for riding boots to prevent the boot from slipping out of the stirrup.
