Although heel shoes are depicted in ancient Egyptian murals on tombs and temples, the earlier mentions about human leg in heel shoes come from Hellenic times.

The wearing of heel shoes was booming in Europe in the 16th century and was lasted until the French Revolution. Then the low shoes were worn again, because the heel was a sign of wealth and well-being of the nobility. High heels were worn by Louis IX., Mary I Tudor, and Catherine de' Medici.

The ownership of heel shoes was associated with the ownership of horse, because this type of footwear was suitable for leg in the stirrup. The heel is back in vogue in the 19th century and they keep there to this day. The heels have also erotic function. Heel has an impact on posture of women - accentuates the bust and bottom.
