Kim’s recent photographs and videos analyzed by South Korean conservative newspaper Chosun Ilbo suggest that the shoes he wore had insoles that seemed to push his feet upward, creating the appearance of a high slope in the front of his footwear, between the two leaders at the summit landmark.
According to The Washington Post, a new analysis of his shoes suggests that he might actually be about 5-foot-4 at standing, which is 3 inches shorter. Previously, it was thought that the North Korean leader was around 5-foot-7.
In the photographs taken during their meeting, Moon appears to be around 5-foot-6, but he seems to have gained a few extra inches in height with his shoes, making him appear shorter than he actually is.
Some sources claim that Il Jong Kim, the father of Kim Jong Un, wore shoe lifts in his shoes to make himself appear taller, including popular choices such as elevator shoes and shoe height-boosting insoles that can elevate you up to nearly 3 inches.
