Last week we attended the preview reception for the Walk A Mile In Her Shoes charity walk at Turf Lounge in support of the campaign to end violence against women. The evening was hosted by CP24’s Steve Anthony, who was wearing heels by the way… in fact I spotted at least six men in heels, even the male serving staff were in heels, now that’s some serious support. We sipped on signature beverages like the blistered stiletto and the sling back which was absolutely delicious, and snacked on appetizers while being given tips and tricks on how to walk in heels, as well as how to look good while rocking heels. There was even a walk off between some of the men in heels, which was hilarious by the way, but oh so touching 🙂

There’s something absolutely satisfying about seeing these men in heels don’t you think?… maybe it’s just me 🙂
