Who What Wear gives us some great advice and tips in this article which apply equally for women and men who wear heels.
From the Article:
"The easiest way to look ungainly in heels is to put your whole foot down at once as if you’re wearing flats. It may seem obvious to many, but when wearing a high shoe, put your heel down first, followed by your toe. This will make your walk look more natural."
"you’ll walk more gracefully if you look at your goal point (the café at the end of the street, for example) and visualise a straight line going toward it rather than staring down at your toes as you walk."

From the MasterClass website's Design & Style section, this is a great piece entirely focused on the origins of the Cuban Heel.
Often feared by many men for the higher heel profile compared to most men's shoes, the Cuban Heel is an easy, risk-free start for anyone who wants to start wearing higher heeled shoes, men and women alike, but don't take our word for it, read the MasterClass article and hear from their style experts.
From the Article:
"You’ll often find Cuban heels on lace-less boots, such as side-zip boots, men’s dress shoes, Chelsea boots, and some styles of cowboy boots. Cuban heels are a staple in flamenco and Latin ballroom dancing, as male dancers wear Cuban heels when dancing the tango, cha-cha, samba, and rumba."
"Early forms of the Cuban heel date to the ninth century, when Persian soldiers wore shoes with a rounded heel for stability while riding horses. The Cuban heel also appeared in men’s fashion during seventeenth-century France. In twentieth-century England, a shorter Cuban heel became what is now the modern Cuban heel style."
