Marilyn Monroe once said, “I don’t know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot.” If by a lot she means pain, don’t worry, one of the guys behind Butterfly Twists took one for the team. After losing a bet, he found himself wearing a pair of 6-inch stilettos at a party and a long night of discomfort prompted him to come up with an idea to end high-heel suffering for women.
