The Cuban heel (or Spanish heel) is making a comeback, and about time too. Men's heeled shoes perhaps haven't always been the most popular of options but when you take a brief look at the history of the Cuban heel, all of your qualms and hesitations regarding the heel will soon fade away.
The origin of men's heeled shoes can be traced back to 9th century Persia, where it was believed horse riding warriors wore higher heels than usual to help them keep their feet in the stirrups of their warhorses. This was consequently replicated by the cowboys of Wild West era America and most recently men's Cuban heels found fame when popularised by The Beatles and their namesake, the Beatle boot.
So that's medieval warriors, cowboys, and the most famous band of all time, all of whom sported the Cuban heel. Not a bad set of advocates is it?
