Not so Heelarious...

High Heels for babies?

There’s a lively debate on the Internet about the shoes, with some bloggers appalled by them and others smitten with the cuteness of it all.

A press release from manufacturer Heelarious goes heavy on the cute: “Fashionable. Adorable. Hilarious. Ingenious. Yes, we're talking about the latest rage in shoes to hit the market since Sex and the City made Choo and Louboutin household names. Heelarious has conquered the last frontier of baby fashion in such a fabulous way that we have to think that Carrie Bradshaw would most certainly approve.”

Celebrity-Babies.com had this take: “If you're the mother of a baby and can't wait to go for your first mother-daughter manicure, get her fitted for her first bra, or give her a makeover, you might get a kick out of heelarious infant high heels.”

Others are less excited. “These baby high heels are ridiculous and take out all the fun in having a baby and toddler,” reads an anonymous comment posted on Digg.com. “I wish the fashion industry would quit promoting adult like clothing and accessories for infants and toddlers. Doesn't anyone want to keep the little ones a normal dressed baby?”
