A chunky heel is a thick, solid built heel that normally does not taper much and often resembles a stacked block. Chunky heels are generally more comfortable to wear than other heel types such stilettos and are often chosen for the added support and stability they provide on high heeled footwear. Chunky heels are available in different heights and shapes and can be found on a wide variety of shoe styles.
Heels are shoes featuring an incline on the heel. Heels could be a separate piece from the outsole or a wedge heel that runs the entire length of the outsole. The heel provides elevation and can be found in many different shapes, including block, tapered, blade, and wedge. Heels can also be many different heights such as kitten heel, stilleto heel, low heel, mid heel or high heel.
