Michael Kors makes high heels for little girls
It looks like it won't just be Suri Cruise flying the flag for the under-10s high heeled shoe brigade soon: internationally acclaimed shoe designer Michael Kors has just created a line of footwear for girls as young as six which includes mid heeled court shoes and high wedges. Of course, the kiddie high heels have caused a bit of a commotion since appearing in the shops, with many claiming they are part of the sexualisation of young girls. Others have simply expressed concern for their growing feet...
Here at Shoewawa we are a little bit disappointed to see that one of our most respected designers is encouraging young girls into heels so early, as we think there's plenty of time for that later on - and that being able to wear heels is part of the few exclusive joys of being a grown-up!
What do you think about the move by Kors to sell such grown-up looking shoes to little girls? The heels are not sky-scrapers: there are no Louboutin-style stilettos here, but the shoes have definitely got more height than your average Start Rite style.
