But no ma’am, Willow.
All jokes aside, Same Chic Different Day looooooooves the kids. I promise you we do! But this picture of Willow Smith shopping in Soho in a pair of $690 Adidas Y-3 by Yohji Yamamoto heeled sneakers has us clutching our pearls in horror. Aside from the fact that they are an assault on the eyes, are 4 1/2 heels appropriate for children? True, I grew up rocking white canvas Keds and Nike Air Max, but come on…is this really what’s hot for pre-teens? I blame Will and Jada.
I’m all for letting kids express themselves in a healthy, safe manner (side-eye to the green buzz cut, though), but I wonder: where should parents draw the line between self-expression and exhibitionism (i.e. making an unnecessary spectacle of oneself)?

Totally agree. Sexualizing children is just headed down the wrong path way early.
