English term or phrase: kitten heel
A low sculptured heel curved sharply inward along the sides and back, then flared slightly at the base - does anyone know the German term? Many thanks!

Explanation:
Unfortunately, I did not find the translation in a bilingual dictionary.
However, the following web sites might help you at least a little.

The following site is in English and provides pictures of this kind of heel:

The following two web sites mention "Y-Absätze", although they do not provide pictures of them. You can easily find the relevant passages by looking for "Y-Absätze" using the "find in page" feature.

Sorry that I do not have time to look any further.

Again, I am pretty sure that Y-Absätze is a correct translation for kitten heels.
I hope that I could help you at least a little. Good luck.
