Spring is in the air, and with that comes a change in weather, flowers and of course, fashion! My 5.5 year-old, Kieran, loves to wear ballet flats…all the time. She is 100% girly so the more sparkle on the shoes, the better in her eyes. As a mom and a physical therapist, I want her to be excited about the clothes and shoes she wears, but not at the cost of damaging her growing feet. Too many of the flats our there have really stiff soles and she’d slip on the pavement in seconds if she tried to be active in them. And, let’s face it, when shoes are pretty and you have a girly girl, she’s going to want to wear these shoes ALL THE TIME, not just for special occasions.
So when these shoes came in, and I did my cursory inspection, I gave her the green light to slip them on and take a few laps around the back yard. The Michael Kors Claret haS many features that make these shoes great for dressed up Spring events AND for play:
- Flexible Soles
- Wide Toe Box
- Non marking, rubberized soles
- Elasticized around the foot (These shoes do not slip off her heels when she’s running around)
- Adorable girly design
- “Sparkle Power” (clearly, an important feature for Kieran)
In addition to Michael Kors, Stuart Weitzman and Enzo also have a new spring line of cute shoes for the girls you should check out this season:
