Cutwork is a type of decorative embellishment in which portions of the shoe upper or the surface of a handbag for example, are cut away to create a design pattern. The resulting cut-out shapes can sometimes be reinforced with stitches placed close to the edges to form embroideries.
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.
