What kind of shoes should I let my 13 year old daughter wear to her school dance?

My daughter wants to wear thesse high heel shoes and I don't want her to wear them but she refuses to get any other shoes. Should I compromise and let her get heels that arent too high?

  • I would get shoes with low (and inch or so) chunky heals. Not to lady like but still a heel.

  • If you don't want her to wear them, tell her she's not going to wear them. You are the mom, and if she refuses to get any other shoes, then you refuse to let her go. No 13-year old should be telling her mom what she will or will not do.

  • at that age my mom let me wear small heals.. high heels.. def a big no go at the age of 13. If she doesnt want to wear any other shoes tell her to go barefoot!

  • Id let her wear the heels and see how much they hurt. My son and his gf just went to prom and she wore dressed up flip flops lol. Why? She did the heals when she was younger and they hurt her feet.

  • I want her to be happy, but I don't want her to get hurt if she falls or breaks the heel. She is going with someone tall on purpose. She thinks I will let her wear heels. Should I let her wear 2 inch heels?

  • 2 inch chunky heels I might consider. I would not let her wear those skinny heels to a dance where she will be goofing off. Plus those things take practice to actually be able to walk in much less dance! She would end up kicking them off after 1/2 and hour. Your the mama though. GO let her try some one and see how they look and feel. Remind her it will be a LONG evening if they are uncomfortable or hard for her to balance in.
