Dressing up shoes for a toddler?

My daughter will be 2 on Christmas Eve and she loves shoes. I know this sounds crazy but she does. When we are out in clothes shops she will suddenly be sat on the floor taking off her own shoes and trying to put high heels on. She also spends a lot of time at home taking my shoes on and off. She isn't safe to walk round in them!

I think she'd love a set of those dressing up shoes that just slip on but would they all be too big for her at the moment? She is shoe size 7 so probably fairly big for her age but I'm not sure?

My dd loves hers, she's a size 8 and they fit but it's more the width of the foot that can be a problem,they're very slim fitting. I got hers in Sainsbury's last year.

Dd2 is nearly 3 and size 7.5. She has been tramping around in DD1's old play shoes for about 6 months.
They're quite spacious but as long as she's not on the stairs they are OK.
It was a box with 3 pairs and a tiara. Will check the make for you when I go upstairs but cheap & cheerful.
I'm a soft touch so I'd probably get them for the reaction on her birthday/Xmas day and if she didn't seem safe with them, hide them away for 6 months.

Dd has quite wide feet with a high instep but I'm suspecting she will likely just want to put them on, walk round the living room, take them off, put them on again etc.

She often cries if we go past shoes in a shop and she doesn't get to try them on...

What about these?
They're available in infant size 7 and look a bit safer than the plastic heeled shoes. m.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Girls-Kids-Shinny-Princess-Elsa-Dress-Up-Sandals-Princess-Shoes-Party-Formal-/132214316092?var=&hash=item1ec8965c3c

My 4 year old dd had the Argos set (chad valley I think) for Christmas last year and they get played with several times a week. My 20 month old son has taken a special interest in them and is often found walking around (always in a matching pair) I was a bit concerned about his safety at first but he's actually really steady in them- far steadier than me in heels!

Just checked and ours are razzle dazzle glam shoes and tiara, same as your pic but mine are no longer available on amazon.

Chad Valley ones are good too. Ndn's dd had those.

I got dd who also loved shoes proper one but from primark and shoe zone instead of clarks when she was that age. Tacky and covered in glitter- she was in heaven! The slip on ones were fine year after.

My 2yo is the same. We got her dressing up ones from b&m
