The Different Types of Vintage Stocking Heels

What are the different types of vintage stocking heel designs? Many women have this question about fully fashioned stockings, so we put together a handy reference guide below. Luckily, it's pretty simple!

Point or French heel stocking

The reinforced part of the stocking tapers to a point above the back of the ankle. This classic design compliments the shape and length of your leg.

Cuban heel stocking

The reinforced part of the stocking comes to a square above the back of the ankle. These are similar to Havana heel stockings, though the design is thinner and finishes higher on the leg.

Havana heel stocking

Similar to the Cuban stocking heel, the reinforced part of the stocking comes to wider square above the back of the ankle. The width above the ankle is similar to that on the bottom of the foot.

Manhattan heel stocking

The Manhattan could be described as a mix between the Point and Cuban stocking, with the addition of a thin, intricate outline that traces the entire heel design.
