: What is the meaning and origin of the phrase 'chinese heels'?

Obviously, cads who speak Chinese. Actually, never heard the phrase. Something about footwear, I supppose. And the most distinctive Chinese footwear, of course, is that used when Chinese ladies had their feet bound. Dreadful institution! Or perhaps it means something totally different. SS
