How to Measure High Heel Shoes Height

By Noel Stanchfield

For many women, high heels are a wardrobe staple. They come in a variety of styles, types and heights. Stiletto, pump and kitten are all types of high-heeled shoes. Although many women own a variety of different heels, they do not always know the height of each heel. Luckily, it doesn't take much effort to measure the height of high-heeled shoes.


Step 1

Set the shoe on a flat, even surface.

Step 2

Measure the back of the heel from the point where it connects to the shoe, called the seam, to the bottom of the heel resting on the flat surface.

Step 3

Write this measurement down; this is the height of your high-heeled shoe.
