You may have seen this on the nets or various morning shoes, pardon me, shows:
I’m not talking about the adorable baby, of course not. I’m talking about the high heels she’s wearing. This bears repeating: The. High. Heels. For. Infants.
You can find all about the “Heelarious” on their website, including the six different styles (hot pink, leopard-print, zebra-print, you get the idea). Sure, the heels are “fake”–they’re collapsible–but one question does come to mind: Why? Does it benefit the child or the adult who will laugh at the child’s expense? Do these “heelarious” shoes HAVE to come in the most non-infant colors and patterns imaginable? And why does a bed-ridden infant need such shoes to begin with? Ooops, I guess I had a few more questions.
Personally, I’m a little, oh, I don’t know. Repulsed? Saddened? Nauseated? If I had a baby daughter, this is NOT what I would have her wear, for the sake of a few amused stares from strangers. High heels usually send the “I’m sexy, look at me” kind of message. Is that really the message we want our toddlers to send? Brrrrrrr!!!!!
