These shoes showed up in a bag of hand-me-downs from my sister. Kaitlyn has been asking to wear them for a few days. I finally remembered to plan ahead when laying out her clothes this morning. The minute she put them on, I could tell they hurt her feet. I asked her if she wanted to change. She said no. I asked her if they hurt her feet. She responded with, “No. They are fine. My teachers will like them.” Evidently sacrificing comfort for fashion starts at age 3.
