You are probably wondering who this man is. He is the reason why we wear stilettos today. Roger Vivier was a designer for Christian Dior in the 1950s and was credited for reviving interest in the high heel style. Named for the stiletto dagger, the shoe was known to be more erotic in nature and not necessarily a shoe that the common everyday woman wore.

Vivier reworked the design and made it more wearable for the everyday woman, and with the popularity of female film stars changing the way sexuality was portrayed on the big screen, stilettos became more in demand.

By the 1970s, Manolo Blahnik produced a new version of the stiletto and the shoe continued to evolve into the stiletto that we know and wear today.
