Big fat "Meh" from me I'm afraid.
They are soft pram shoes for babies not yet walking.
Not to my taste but they do no harm

Well they won't harm the baby's feet as they are soft shoes, but they are symptomatic of this obsession with genderising and sexualising what babies and girls look like.

MrsJayy Thu 30-Mar-17 15:07:24

They are ridiculous looking however some parents like their girls looking girly they are no worse that bows on babies or frily hats

badabing36 Thu 30-Mar-17 15:11:01

Erm dunno.

I don't like them, but sexualising babies? Are high heels just about sex?

Reow Thu 30-Mar-17 15:13:09

Fucking hell. I hate this world sometimes.

ageingrunner Thu 30-Mar-17 15:13:51

This is how they're advertised

I have seen outrage about this company (or a very similar one) a couple of times. I imagine they get a lot of business from people seeing the threads on here and twitter etc.

badabing36 Thu 30-Mar-17 15:39:53

Yep, you got me there ageingrunner, pretty fucking disgusting.

Ugh. Doesn't that pic breach all manner of guidelines?

ageingrunner Thu 30-Mar-17 15:58:30

You'd hope so wouldn't you Datun?

ageingrunner Thu 30-Mar-17 15:58:54

I know it's awful badabing 😷

ageingrunner Thu 30-Mar-17 15:59:15

Sorry can only do short posts due to screen refreshing constantly

What the actual fuck

GoodyGoodyGumdrops Thu 30-Mar-17 16:05:38

The picture on the BBC website looks like a raddled old Hollywood has-been! Hardly a good look.

And, yes, high heels are about sex. They mimic the arched foot position common in arousal, and arch the lower back and hips into an arousal position.

GoodyGoodyGumdrops Thu 30-Mar-17 16:06:26

Not these shoes, obviously!

BigDeskBob Thu 30-Mar-17 16:07:16

It reminds me of when people dress up their dogs at Halloween. That second picture is grim.

Soubriquet Thu 30-Mar-17 16:07:53

So I'm guessing you haven't seen the bow glue yet? Where you can actually glue a bow on your babies head when there isn't enough hair to clip it in

M0stlyBowlingHedgehog Thu 30-Mar-17 16:18:10

Holy shit ageing, that photo. There is not enough brain bleach in the world for that photo.

ageingrunner Thu 30-Mar-17 16:21:13

I'm really sorry about the photo. Perhaps shouldn't have posted it tbh

Soubriquet Thu 30-Mar-17 16:23:22

Check this out

girlie glue

picklemepopcorn Thu 30-Mar-17 16:26:32

That picture is appalling. Anyone we can complain to?

Footle Thu 30-Mar-17 16:29:47

How about the ancient art of foot binding? Should that be revived?

Datun Thu 30-Mar-17 16:38:13

You absolutely should have posted it.

Pink toys for girls was bad enough. Head glue worse. And this is the logical result. Girls have a role dammit and we're going to let everybody know.
