My daughter is turning ten in a few weeks, and I don’t know if you know this about prepubescent children, but their feet, good lord, their feet want to get a jump on that whole growth spurt thing.
This is annoying in any event, because suddenly the kid needs new shoes more often than she needs new underwear, but it is particularly annoying for a young girl because the difference in shoe styles between kids and juniors is, shall we say, extreme. As soon as she passed the size 4 mark, it seemed that retailers wanted me to either pay twice as much or buy her hooker gear. And you know how I feel about either of those options.
My little girl still wants pink sandals. Pink sandals she can run and jump and play in. Which is why I still pink puffy heart LL Bean, and why I was ecstatic this morning to find that their pink cool wave sandals are on sale for just $6.95 in sizes 3-6. Use coupon code 3001059 for free shipping, too.
Pinky Flipperfoot is going to be thrilled.
