Are they so desperate for attention?
Three men agreed to spend a morning walking around New York City wearing fabulous pairs of pumps, in order to take – quite literally – a walk in their female counterparts’ shoes.
Billy Procida, Ken Again and Jonathan Runyan all struggled to take their first steps in their glamorous shoes, but bravely persisted.
After putting on his black pumps, Billy was shocked at how precarious his balance seemed.
‘How do you all walk through life without a spotter constantly?’ he asked. ‘Is that why women travel in packs? So, like, everyone can catch each other?’
He then took on the sidewalks and did a fairly good job, but remained confused as to whether he was supposed to put down his heels or his toes first.
Jonathan, meanwhile, had to crouch to rub his feet while wearing his eye-catching red shoes with leopard print.
‘It hurts… It hurts!’ the man complained.
He revised his opinion later on and – after the shoes came off – declared: ‘Well, that wasn’t terribly comfortable. It also wasn’t terribly painful.’
Ken, who strapped on a lovely pair of light pink sparkly shoes, pledged never to ask a woman wearing heels to hurry up ever again.
‘I will say you chose the wrong shoes for New York,’ he added, taking a few uncertain steps on the asphalt.
