You may remember I felt a bit outraged when the first pictures of little Suri Cruise wearing high heels sandals emerged. Just as I previously was in response to a collection of shoes meant for babies which also featured high heels. For fun.
I always thought adding an extra inch or two is a grown up style matter and there was no need to bring that kind of style option to (little) children. Not just because I tend to favor comfy, playful wardrobes for kids but also because their bone structure is too young and not yet in favor of changing the weight center by adding the unnatural height. I’m no doctor, so these are not professional opinions, just a mother’s instinct acting against the fashion.
However, Suri Cruise, my dahlings, was an absolute trendsetter. Today I found a picture of Coco Arquette, Courtney Cox (ex Arquette)’s daughter wearing high heels sandals. Then, pensively looking at the photo, a familiar memory has crossed my mind: haven’t I seen high heeled sandals in H&M while looking for shoes for our girl? Yes I did! Yes I did! High heels for kids are officially in, daaahlings! You can find a pair at your nearest H&M store (and, possibly others, only this is what I found. Please share your experience and thoughts on the matter as well) (photos via 1, 2)
