As tensions increase with North Korea, one can’t help but wonder what is up with the women in Kim Jong-un’s military strutting around in 4 inch heels:
Is it just me or do these women look like Kim Jong-un’s Bond Girls?
It seems I’m not the only one wondering about this photo, Maureen O’Connor at NY Mag said:
Among the many mysteries associated with North Korea’s military, “Why are they wearing high heels?” is perhaps the least important of all. But it’s still so mysterious: How much time do these women spend marching in heels? Do they have special techniques for dealing with blisters? Are their platform heels standard-issue? (The woman in the middle appears to be wearing a different style than the other two.) The products of border bribes? What about the scrunchies on their ponytails?
