What are Cuban Heel Fully Fashioned Stockings? The heel type refers to the way the heel is finished at the top of your ankle. In the case of Cuban Heel stockings this means that it takes the form of a long rectangle shape that is squared off at the top.
Cuban Heels give an authentic 1940s look. Point heels didn’t become popular until the early 1950s when they became the favourite of Parisian couture houses. The Cuban Heel would still have been worn throughout the 1950s and 1960s, especially in the USA. It’s by far WKD most popular heel type.
These stockings are made to fit the average dress size UK 12 to 16, US 8-12 person, (40-44 European). The maximum thigh size that they will comfortably fit is 25" (63.5cm). If you are very slender, and at the bottom height of 'your' size then you can size down.
We recommend wearing gloves when putting on and removing these nylons as they are extremely delicate.
