High-heeled leather boots for toddlers
Last November, I posted my highly critical views about the fad for high heels for babies. I sincerely hoped it was just a passing fad and people would be sensible and refuse to buy the inappropriate shoes but unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case. In fact, the American company, Heelarious is still doing business and even worse than the high heeled shoes, has launched a new range of knee-high leather boots for toddlers. (link via telegraph.co.uk) I'm appalled at the very idea. In my opinion this trend is not only very inappropriate but quite offensive. Babies and young children should not be sexualised. What do you think about the high heeled shoes and the leather boots for toddlers? Do you agree with my views or do you think I'm overreacting and that this fashion is just harmless fun?
