List Rules Vote up all of your favorite heels. Don't see a type of heel on here? Add it to the list!

It's a heel off, everybody! EVERYBODY, it's a HEEL OFF! That's right, we're challenging each heel to step it up in this ultimate list of make it or break it. These types of heels are deadly if used correctly. We're talkin' platform pumps, peep-tow wedges, kitten heel peep-toe d'orsay. THE WORKS.

Some of the names for these shoes are just too ridiculous to pronounce, but just look at the pictures. Oh, the pretty pictures of the foot tortures we call shoes. The heel-less ankle strap peep-toe platform is something that would need a little bit of practice before actually wearing them out. On the plus side, if you wear them, you could rock a cane for balance.
