Word of the Week: Heel Breast

This Word of the Week is sure to make you giggle.


The “heel breast” refers to the part of the heel that faces forward when the shoe is on one’s foot.  The heel breast is found under the arch of the sole and can be a different color than the rest of the shoe.  For example, the Christian Louboutin Very Prive Pumps have a red heel breast.  The heel breast will differ in size based on the height of the heel itself. It can have a slight curved shape or extended straight down from the sole.
