both answers sound good to me

in an interview an  with kate hepburn about her first impression upon meeting the duke on the set. she says here was this man with this huge body, but tiny feet.
if you notice the duke did had small feet. my guess is the duke created a totally unique way of swaggering.

Did the DUKE steal his walk from the king of stuntmen Yakima Canutt? A rumor I heard many years ago.............

  I thought John Ford taught him how to walk like that.  On the documentary on the Alamo DVD, there's some good interviews how director/producer Wayne wanted everyone to walk like him.

  If its not the Ford thing, I remember reading the Duke had a broken leg before he hit it big.  Could that be it?

Apparently Wayne's walk & hand on hips stand were influenced by the Michaelangelo statue 'David', of which he was a great fan.

On the Bravo Channel (Inside the Actor's Studio) they were interviewing Burt Reynolds, I was flipping by and he was telling the end of some story about how John Wayne got his walk, all I caught was something about walking like an Native American putting toe to heel, toe to heel, etc., I'll see if they repeat it

Did you know the sets in most of the films John Wayne starred in were built smaller then normal? why you ask? So the Duke could look bigger.

Not kidding.

  I know he broke his leg early in his career, maybe that had something to do with the Duke's unique walk?

Not kidding.

But John Wayne was 1.93 m tall, what were they trying? Make him look like he was 2.05?

Anyway, they do these things often nowadays. The stars/actors tend to be small.
