We have a large collection of mens shoes and boots with a cuban heel. Sometimes known as men's high heel shoes, cuban heels are notoriously famous in the latin world. Often used for dancing, cuban heels can also be worn by those looking for a slight boost in height. Although this is not always the case. Cuban heel shoes and boots are also a symbol of the rock and roll movement. In the 60's and 70's they were brought to the public attention by the world famous Rock band The Beatles.
The Cuban heel (or Spanish/Stacked 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. Heeled shoes didn't become popular amongst women until the 16th Century! 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? Well if you're still having doubts about the greatness of men's Cuban heels then just wait until you see our excellent selection of boots and shoes which feature top quality leather heels.
