North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been spotted sporting Cuban heels like his late father Kim Jong-il.
In photos from the North Korean state media of Kim visiting an amusement park in Pyongyang with his wife Ri Sol-ju last week, the chubby leader’s shoes look designed to make him seem taller.
Kim, who is thought to be 168 cm tall, apparently wears 5-cm lifts.
