High Heels for Baby Girls?

High Heels for Baby Girls?

What happened to the days when baby girls wore cute pink slippers or shiny Mary Janes?  The latest fashion trend for tots—high heel crib shoes—is causing quite a stir.  Some people think it’s adorable, while others find it an attempt to create even younger clones of Paris Hilton. Heels for babies that can't even walk? Really?

Created by two Seattle moms, Heelarious shoes sell for $35 a pair, and come in such designs as leopard satin print, hot pink patent, black satin, zebra satin, black patent and hot pink satin. The shoes only come in one size (0-6 months), and aren’t meant to be walked in. In fact, the heels collapse if a baby attempts to stand on them.

Heelarious brags that they have “conquered the last frontier of baby fashion in such a fabulous way that we have to think that Carrie Bradshaw would most certainly approve.”  Wow, we never thought we’d see the day when a Sex and the City reference made it into the same sentence as baby footwear.

What do you think of this latest fashion trend—totally adorable or too creepy?

I agree with everyone here - it is too much and way too creepy! Babies are cut enough on their own...

Yes, I agree with Dairygirl--it's totally creepy and obnoxious. I wouldn't be surprised if make-up for babies was the next thing in this product line!

Looks like somebody's going to make money with this "different" fashion concept!
Can't baby girls be adorable on their own, without ANY accessories??

Disturbing on so many levels! What's next, makeup for infants? I mean, c'mon...
