The favourite footwear of men for this event was a bright red, high heel shoe. The occasion was the 2011 walk a mile in her shoes (Toronto) and they started putting on the shoes in Yonge-Dundas Square just before lunch. The September 29, 2011 walk is from noon to 2pm and the square was filled with booths will a shoe station where you could find a pair if needed, sign ups, a first aid station and various information booths.
Besides the men walking in her shoes, which is hard to believe because most are really big shoes, there were also plenty of supporters of both sexes that were there to walk or cheer on the participants. These thigh high boots, pictured above, were perfect for the rain.
Bright red shoes work well with the emergency task force police officer.
I like it when emergency response personnel join in – this year I did not see any firefighters but there were a few police forces represented. See the 2010 walk on my post here.

Members of the RCMP in full regalia were on hand to walk a mile in their own shoes.
