German engineer Mark Bryan, age 61, isn’t averse to dispelling gender preconceptions.


Although high heels were first designed in the tenth century to give men more height and style, they are now almost exclusively associated with women.

Mark is just one of many contemporary men who are reclaiming the iconic shoe style for those who weren’t born female.

Mark Bryan, a 61-year-old robotics engineer with three children, divides his time mostly between his career and family.

Although the man’s appearance would not lead one to believe he had a social media following, his daring attire and photos have recently caused quite a stir online for the native German.

Through his Instagram uploads, Mark has gained nearly 660,000 followers.
