The men of Flint, Michigan, aren't afraid of a little flair—all in the name of charity, of course. Last week, the male citizens of Flint put on ladies' shoes—everything from bedazzled Crocs, flip-flops, and stilettos for the city's first-annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes protest against domestic violence. "I decorated my crocs for the special occasion," said participant Kevin Botos. "This is my first time participating, but I would have definitely wore heels if I could find my size." And student Luis Garcia said: "I feel like a better man by participating in something like this. I also feel taller too." [Michigan Times]
