Icon220 Marilyn Monroe's shoes

Comment: Is it true that Marilyn Monroe used to cut down one of her high heels to give her a sexy walk?

I have seen several pairs of MMs shoes, and none appeared to be modified in any way; presumably as she always had the walk then every pair would have had to be cut down.

I heard (can't verify anything) that she did it with one set. That's it.

Wouldn't this make her look like she was limping, rather than "sexy?"

You don't find it sexy when women put themselves through pain and damage their bodies to attract the attention of men?

DH says I look like I'm limping in high heels anyway.

Yeah, because high heels aren't painful or damaging at all in their unaltered state....

Or kind of drunk. Maybe that's "sexy"?

Not all high heels hurt or cause damage.
