Tifton fighters are trading in their boots for high heels to show support for the fight against domestic violence. Kiefer Daughtry is an engineer at the Tifton Fire Department, and right before the interview, he traded in his work shoes for a pair of fuchsia-colored high heels. “What’s going through your head right now? How does it feel?” asked Poitevint. “It feels terrible. I’m ready to put shoes on," said Daughtry. “How long have you been in them right now?” asked Bobby. “Five minutes,” replied Daughtry. Daughtry said it’s nothing like anything he’s ever worn before. “Oh, absolutely not. The boots we wear are steel-toe and pretty sturdy. These shoes are way worse,” explained Daughtry. This is all part of an outreach initiative by Ruth’s Cottage and the Patticake House.
