d'Orsay Heel

A high heel shoe in which the vamp, or side, of the shoe is exposed to reveal the arch of the foot.

The d'Orsay heel was named after Count D'Orsay, a French noble who married into English society and subsequently became a pillar of fashion and style in English courts around the turn of the 19th century. The heel style gained scandalous popularity for its arch-bearing design.
