Third grader wearing high heels

Another thread got me thinking about something I saw at my school a bit ago, but didn't give any thought to it since. I had to go into a third grade class for some paperwork during a prep. Anyway, I saw a girl in high heels. The teacher didn't seem to mind. So, I didn't make a stink about it. I called my mom later that day and it came up. She really was poed about it. What do you guys think of s third grader wearing high heels?

Totally not appropriate. Plus, it's a safety hazard. There should be something in the dress code about "appropriate footwear".

We recently had a sixth grader in snakeskin platform pumps. The platform had to be at least 3-4 inches high, and the heels were sky high stilettos. They looked like the type of shoes Lady Gaga would wear. I reported it to the principal and the girl had to change her shoes.

I have noticed this A LOT recently. Even younger students are wearing heels, tall boots with heels or wedges, and just generally completely ridiculous footwear.

I also have noticed a lot of younger students wearing heels and wedges. I don't like it, but I've usually let it go unless they had PE that day or they weren't able to walk correctly in them. If it looked like they were going to get hurt, then I would say something.

I don't think it's a big deal at all. Here in CR I see tons of crazy club wear being worn by younger girls... to *church*.

We have bigger battles to fight.

The kindergarten students wearing their short and sexy sweater dresses (but I won't go there—well, I kind of just did, but I digress...) and stumbling around like Bambi in their fancy shoes would NOT make it out in good time and safely for any of our frequent emergency drills.

Common sense, parents...common sense.

We wear uniforms, but honey when they are allowed to dress up for a program or something--you definitely see heels, even on the 5-year olds (make-up too )!

I would be worried if it was something they did a lot that it would mess up the muscles in their feet-I know adults with that issue.

My daughter is in 3rd grade and has worn little kitten heels to school before. I would never let her wear anything higher than that though.

Last week I saw a first grader wearing some wedge sandals that looked like something a 20 year old would wear.

Isn't that dangerous for growth at their age?
