Shoes, Style On Trial

“Style” on Trial: ‘Heelarious’ high heels for babies


Let us just begin this article by stating for the record that The Fashion Police exempt babies – and, in fact, all children – from their rulings.  Babies shouldn’t have to worry about "style". That’s one of the cool things about being a baby. That and the drool.

It’s not the "style" of these shoes we’re interested in hearing your opinions on, then, but the very idea of them.  They’re called "Heelarious" and they’re baby’s first high heels. Now, we should also point out here, that they’re not real high heels. They’re soft crib shoes designed to look like high heels, and they come in a variety of colours and styles including hot pink, leopard print and black patent with rhinestone.

So, what do we think of this, readers? Clearly these shoes are aimed at parents rather than their children: we’re wondering whether you find them "heelariously" funny and harmless, as the manufacturers intend, or whether you think, like we do, that even although they’re supposed to be funny, there’s still something just a little bit off about the idea of a baby in stilettos – albeit fake ones?

What’s the verdict then, fashion cadets: are these shoes "heelarious"? (If you think you are, you can pick up a pair from the Heelarious website for $35.)
