Suri‘s love of heels have been talked about almost as much as the health-care bill (well, in our world, at least). So leave it to the mini fashionista to step it up by pairing red polka dot pumps with a fancy flamenco dress while visiting dad Tom Cruise on set in Spain.

We’re not sure who makes her super-cute pair, but we’ve tracked down an equally adorable and totally affordable version (below). At $25 a pop, they’re the perfect dancing shoes for your future ballroom dancer!

With all the respect, the shoes with heels for a 3 year old are NOT a must-have.

Not a fan of heels for little girls- children should be able to run and jump and play at that age and heels could cause injuries.
After all, you have all your adult life to torture your feet with high heels.

I have two granddaughters, ages 4 and 5 – and both would love these. My two year old grandson also loves shoes.. especially mine – and he would probably wear them when his 4 year old sister wasn’t! Playing in heels is not going to hurt children – take it from a 48 year old who has raised 3 kids and now has 4 grandchildren. Kids shouldn’t be running around the house anyways, in heels or not. I see a lot of little girls at church wearing shoes with heels – it really isn’t a big deal and the women on here who make it such are rather unnerving.

I think they are cute, but I would not let my little Adalyis wear those out even if she begged me. Heels for a 3 year old should be for play, ONLY.

This girl just keeps getting cuter. But aren’t heels a bad idea for a little kid? Will it stunt her growth or something? I’m probably just making that up.

Pam, actually heels are terrible for your feet, back, posture etc. even for adults but especially for children who still have growing feet. Don’t believe me? Talk to podiatrist about it.

There is really no reason why a toddler needs to be wearing heels. Women wear them to make themselves more attractive, which obviously should be a concern for children. Playing in them is one thing, but wearing them as everyday shoes is totally different.

I also don’t see how heels for toddlers are a “must-have”

I remember my first pair of platform “heels” in the 6th grade. They were such a big deal – and as heels – completely level so no strain on the ankle. Every little girl slips on her older sister/Mom’s high heels and walks about, and then takes them off, but heels are not safe, or good for growing children. The question is if 1) she chooses to dress this way 2)her parents dress her up for fun…

I remember a while ago CBB posted an article on these really tacky looking soft shoes made to look like little high heels for newborns. Yikes….lol!

I honestly don’t think little heels on girls dress shoes are bad. I had a little heel on my church and dress shoes when I was younger. I mean, adult heels aren’t good for your feet either but if they’re wearing them for a few hours I don’t see the harm.

Nicole on

Honestly, I don’t think they’re that bad. She’s likely not wearing them on a daily basis or even all day when she does wear them.

Just reply and say it’s cute, or don’t reply at all. But there’s no need to rehash the ‘why does she need heels’ debate every time we see the poor kid. We’re not her parents, so it’s none of our business.

And not about the shoes-they’re cute and I don’t think they’d hurt if they’re worn just to play dress up. And thank you very much, fuzibuni, but I would NEVER, EVER let my daughter wear hot pants or cropped shirts. Just because some people like to let thier little girls play like little girls doesn’t mean they’re raising a bunch of prostitots. NOT funny.

They were in Spain and apparently the family decided to dress her in a Flamenco (I hope I spelt that right) costume. It’s not bizzare imo, she probably saw the adult dancers and wanted to dress like them?

She’s not anybody’s child on the board (unless one of us is Tom/Katie and if so *waves at them*) so we can sit and talk about what’s right/wrong with her style of dress till the cows come home, doesn’t mean they’re going to do a thing about it.

What part of ‘Dancing’ shoes was unclear to you know-it-alls? Do you think the child wears a Flamenco dress everyday, too? Acting holier than thou and uptight over what type of shoes a STRANGER’S kid wears doesn’t prove what a superior parent you are, it just makes you look sad that you care so much. Let Tom and Katie dress their child as they please, and focus on your own children and your own life. Their future podiatrist issues (if any) certainly won’t be affecting your life any.

My daughter’s Disney Store Minnie Mouse shoes have the exact same size heel. I don’t see what the problem is…they are for play and dress up. Not a big deal in my house.

She is the cutest little sweetface girl! I love seeing pictures of Suri. Tom and Kate must enjoy every minute that they have with her. If she’s anything like my little sweetheart, dress-up play and pretend would be all day, everyday, if she had her way!
Those shoes are precious. My little one is a shoe freak and would love them. Like mother, like daughter!

You can get these shoes all over Spain – my friends’ little girl has a pair from their holiday to Menorca. They are used only for dress-up & therefore I don’t see a problem with the heel.

To be fair, most of the comments against the heels had little to nothing to do with Suri. The post is about the shoes which CBB called “must-haves”, not the girl in them. But, dancing shoes are not meant to be worn when you’re not dancing, fyi.

Also, to those who think heels are harmless…seriously? I dare someone to find me a podiatrist or pediatrician who thinks heels are good or harmless if worn for an extended period of time. They shorten the tendon in your ankle in addition to causing bunions, back aches, etc.

Don’t get me wrong- I love my heels. But, I’m not a toddler.

B. on

Makes me wish to have boys…
This is NOT about SURI, it’s about dressing kids like mini-adults and I feel it is WRONG.
Let children be children, meaning dressed like children and educated like children. It doesn’t matter what they want, but what is good for the. That’s what’s parents are for, no?

My favorite Christmas gift ever was a pair of high heeled dancing shoes. I will never forget opening that package. My mom could not get them off my feet for the entire winter break. lol. When dance class opened again, she had to put the taps on the bottom. But did that stope me? Oh no! I wore the shoes with the taps and all every day. Even to school. And no I didn’t turn out to be a stripper. :P I’m a teacher.

I love it! I love how they let use her imagination. Suri will some day be aware of all the negative comments on everything she wears …. like on here. She’ll have enough time for that. Right now I love how they let her be her. I love those shoes! I buying some for my 3 year old.

The comments about not commenting because “she is not our child” are really annoying. This is a comment board – hence, comments are made and NONE of the children on this blog are our children?! That being said, awful shoes and definitely not on my 3 year old.

My, what lovely dancing shoes.

But….I don’t see any dancing going on??
I was under the impression dancing shoes were not for everyday wear…slapping “Dancing” on the title really doesn’t make them OK in my eyes.

Little girls LOVE high heels. My daughter used to run around in them all the time when she is little. They were for play. Now she is insisting on taking mine. :)
