GUESS Women’s Hondo3 Peep-Toe Pumps

Hondo3 from Guess features a peep-toe, chic cutouts and an adjustable ankle strap, while a 1″ platform and 4″ stiletto heel give you a sexy boost. The adjustable ankle strap will come in handy if you have one foot slightly larger than the other.  This shoe comes in a variety of colors but we just love the texture and color of the tan/light brown edition.

Below is a list of the most common shoe types, but if you still need a more in depth list, check out the Shoe Glossary Online.

Ballerina Shoes or Ballerina Flats: A flat heeled enclosed shoe that has a strong resemblance to ballet shoes.

Boots: An enclosed shoe that covers the entire foot and finishes at the anklebone or above, can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Demi Boots generally are no taller than the ankle. Ankle Boots have a shaft that ends at or around the height of the ankle.

Booties: A shoe that looks like a boot but ends under the anklebone. Sometimes referred to as a ‘shoot’ or ‘shootie’.

Clogs: A type of shoe, usually casual and comfortable, with an open or closed heel and a slip on style.

D’Orsay: A d’Orsay style pump is a woman’s shoe in which the vamp of the shoe is cut away very close to the toe box, and the sides are cut away, revealing the arch of the foot. A half d’Orsay is similar to a d’Orsay in which the vamp of the shoe is cut away very close to the toe box, and the sides are cut away, revealing the arch of the foot but in a half d’Orsay only the outside edge is cut out.

Espadrille: Slip on shoes of Spanish origin, which have a woven fabric (usually canvas) upper, and a flexible sole typically woven from rope or grass.

Flip Flop: A type of sandal, usually a thong, with a lightweight foam outsole that makes a “flip-flop” sound when you walk. Also known as jandals.

Kitten Heel: A type of women’s shoe heel that is set forward and usually very low in height.

Loafer: Loafers are slip-on shoes usually with rounded fronts without shoelaces or buckles.

Mary Jane: A type of women’s shoe characterized by a single or multiple straps across the instep. They are typically flat though they can have varying heel heights and come in a variety of styles.  The strap can be attached with elastic or a buckle, making it easy to slip on and off.

Mule: A heeled shoe with a closed toe, open back and no strap.

Peep toe: Shoe with a small cutout in the front to slightly reveal the toes.

Platform Shoe: A shoe with a thick sole under the front part of the foot. They can have a high heel or the sole can be flat (in which case the thick sole runs the entire length of the shoe).

Pump: The classic work shoe. A heeled shoe of any height which is totally enclosed. Peep-toe shoes can sometimes still be classified as a pump.

Sandal: These have an open toe and open back, with straps across the foot though some designs can vary and have a closed heel, crossed front straps or ribbons.

Slide: A slip-in shoe, totally backless with an open or closed toe. Technically a closed toe slide becomes a ‘mule’.

Sling-back: An open back shoe with a strap that wraps around the upper heel.

Stacked Heel: A heel that looks like stacks of wood, but is actually made of leather or leather-like covering that just gives that appearance.

Stiletto: A very high, slim and tapered heel. Every Princess needs one!

Thong: A sandal with a strap that runs between the first two toes. They can be open back (like the traditional Aussie thongs) or have straps that secure around the ankle.

Wedge Heel: A heel that extends all the way from the sole to the ground, so there is no empty space under the shoe. If the shoe has a thick sole under the front of the foot it is known as a ‘platform wedge’.
