I’m starting to think I need to have a “footwear” category.
Any regular readers of my blog have read my ongoing (yet eventually successful) saga of finding warm waterproof boots (note to Ragtopday — well, my boots are men’s boots also).
I haven’t always been obsessed with comfortable, well fitting, easy to walk in footwear. I used to actually think it might be useful to walk around in heels and such. But then I realized that I was not, and never would be, a “girlie” girl. I can’t wear heels because I’m just as likely to walk on grass as on a sidewalk. Have you ever tried to walk on wet grass in heels. Talk about a “sinking feeling.” I finally figured out that NOT shoving my precious toes into pointy tips and NOT having my poor heels sink or my calves be miserably sore was a good thing. I still recall the happy day my pal mamasara introduced me to the joys of Birks. That was during the FIRST 1/2 of the Reagan administration (I stopped wearing heels during the Carter administration – at my wedding I wore dance shoes for the ceremony and changed to my white birks right after).
So — now we know that I’m not a big fan of “fancy dress” shoes and heels, so imagine my surprise when I found about about the existance of THESE
Yep — high heels for INFANTS??
They’re not for walking in (the heels collapse) I suppose they’re just for photos. And they are $35 a pair. $35 for shoes that a kid can’t even WALK in.
Where’s the sense in that??
