The thought of wearing high heels did not deter over 100 men from participating in Tuesday’s “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event. Hosted at the University of Hawaii Maui College in Kahului, the event called upon men to take a stand, literally, against domestic violence.

Check out Maui Now’s video coverage of this event by Wendy Osher:
