Named after a long, thin, razor-sharp type of knife, the stiletto heel is tall and skinny just like the weapon. It takes skill to strut with these ultra high heels, but for those who do, the style makes a bold statement and flatteringly accentuates the curves of the legs. Modern designers create these high heels in a broad array of styles, from towering platform stilettos to sandals or boots with thin heels. Those who crave unique shoes look for vintage stilettos with one-of-a-kind patterns and materials. However, make sure that the pre-owned versions you view are in excellent condition and true to size. eBay's trusted sellers have many high heels available for shoppers, in a plethora of colors from neutrals to bold, bright hues. Neutral stilettos work well with a variety of outfits, while vivid colors add visual punch to an ensemble. Wearing a pair of these daring shoes to the right function makes you feel sexy, adventurous, and fashionable.
