High heels for babies and athletes?

Apparently it is the moment when everyone from infants to athletes need to have high heeled shoes. A company called Heelarious has put out a line of high-heeled infant shoes. They would really irritate me if it weren’t for the fact that they are aimed at the pre-walking set and so won’t do any harm. Wanna mess with peoples’ heads? Put a pair on a boy baby. People flip when they see anything that even smacks of transgender “transgression” in a kid. When he was 5, CD jr. went out for Halloween as one of the Power Puff Girls. The looks we recieved when people said what a pretty girl and he said “boy” were wonderful. I’m like, he’s 5 — gender is not yet an issue for him. Can we wait a few more years before we start the stereotyping?

Even though I’m not a fan of heels (just seeing them worn makes my feet hurt), I do like these new homage to Converse’s Chuck Taylors. ($65 here.) Only thing better would be a high heel set of Timberlands.

Hmmm, seems I’m a little late to the trend on this one. Other variations on the theme include this one for $130

Or this for $10.

Or for more formal moments this is available for $14

Oh Lord. Today is apparently the day when I channel the spirit of my dear departed friend Tony Cheung who knew more about women’s shoes than anyone I’ve ever met. On the wings of victory, queen!

  1. Oooh my, that’s ridiculous! I suppose it doesn’t help with spoilt Hollywood brats like Suri Cruise having million dollar wardrobes bought for her by her doting parents – including high heel shoes made to match her mum’s. And we thought OUR generation had foot problems from heels.

    (Also, I was tempted not to leave a comment here just so your page would keep the “There are no comments yet…*Kick things off* by filling out the form below.” pun. Oho.)

    Put on your red dress, baby
    Ya know we’re goin’ out tonight
    Put on your red dress, baby
    Lord, we’re goin’ out tonight
    And-a bring along some boxin’ gloves
    In case some fool might wanna fight

    Put on your high-heel sneakers, lordy
    Wear your wig-hat on your head
    Put on your high-heel sneakers, child
    Wear your wig-hat on your head
    Ya know you’re looking mighty fine, baby
    I’m pretty sure you’re gonna knock ’em dead

    Put on your red dress, baby
    Lord, we’re goin’ out tonight
    Put on your red dress, baby
    Well, we’re goin’ out tonight
    And bring along some boxin’ gloves
    ‘case some fool might wanna fight

    Put on your high-heel sneakers, child
    Wear your wig-hat on your head now
    Put on your high-heel sneakers, baby
    Wear your wig-hat on your head
    Ya know you’re looking mighty good, really
    I’m pretty sure you’re gonna knock ’em dead
