I Believe the Children are Our Future…

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)? 

Your thoughts?
