Well-heeled: Monks spotted shopping for ladies’ shoes

It was just another day in a Bangkok mall where two shoppers were spotted enthusiastically shopping for some sexy pairs of ladies’ shoes.

Except these shoppers happened to be monks. Ahem.

Photos of two monks supposedly shopping for ladies’ shoes in a mall in Pinklao have gone viral on social media, Thai Visa reported.

Netizens have criticized the monks for being too concerned with material goods.

The National Office of Buddhism, which promotes Buddhism in Thailand, said it would launch an investigation into the monks, Thai media said.

If it determines the monks have behaved inappropriately, it can expel them from their temple and strip them of their title.
