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.
