The footwear of choice for communist regimes


Any ideas as to why these North Korean soldiers are patrolling in heals.  I mean, they have tread which will help them chase their fleeing countrymen across the ice but that's where the practicality ends. Also, is Number Two wearing sensible pumps with blue socks?  Yes. North Korea is a glorious mystery.

I saw this too (best photos of the year? I had to stop looking about halfway through--there were too many that were too, too much), and I was like, ladies, how much distance are we getting out of these shoes? Like, are we going on maneuvers, because either you are fooling yourselves, or North Korea knows something about shoe design that the rest of us done. It's like a whole communist country of Stacy Londons.
Good for you, soldier number two. Numbers one, three and four: I don't get you.

Val, yes, and I too only made it halfway. Oh brother. Didn't they used to give warnings and the option to view after clicking? I really rely on that!

Number one does NOT look happy! :)

How do they get those hats to stay perched on their heads? It looks like the slightest gust of wind would knock them off.
