Vada's feet are pretty small, a size three in baby shoes which is somewhere around nine months-- I think. Her small feet has a lot to do with the fact that in general V is just a small child. Anyway, its hard to find shoes for her because generally the size that she is in are made primarily for babies who are not yet walking and so the bottoms are soft soled and provide no traction. Since V is up and moving she needs something with a hard sole and that provides great traction. I have found some things a long our way. I found a decent pair of tennis shoes, although not my first choice for style purpose but they provide the support that she needs. Anyway, I was having a conversation with a could of friends the other day about my shoe
addiction problems for Vada and they brought in a couple of pairs that their daughters had recently grown out of. This was my favorite pair!
A pair of (approximately) thirty year old hand crocheted gladiator-like sandals!!! OMG!!! Aren't they fabulous?
Never mind that they were slightly too big, or made from yarn and might as well have had wheels attached to the bottoms. They are cute. Cute. CUTE!
Besides, V isn't walking yet and I'll only put them on her when were going somewhere where I have to carry her around. Were talking serious fashion here. No one else has these, yet.
Turns out that V likes being bare footed almost as much as I do and ripped those suckers off from her feet as quick as she could, but not before I got some pictures of her in them!
