In a fashion development sure to give podiatrists a future boost in business, a line of high-heeled booties for babies has been launched for the six-month-and-under set.
You know, just in case you were looking for something to accentuate your little one’s baby bustier.
The mini-stilettos are sold online with the tag line: “Heelarious – her first high heels.” Made from a soft material, the company’s Web site states they are not intended to be walked in, but rather to encourage harmless, laughter-inducing fun.
Despite criticism from parents and child psychologists who argue the shoes encourage children to grow up too quickly, the Munchkin Pseudo-Manolos — which cost about $35 (+ thousands of dollars in future therapy bills) — are selling like hotcakes.
Infant fishnets not included.
