  • Many sandels offer a heel option even for the young (elementry school) they are cute for dress. For the "high heel" such as 4 inch or the more adult styles you may want to shop for a special event like a dance or conformation and explain about image and function of the heels.

  • whenever they are ready, just make sure they have a heel free option as well. while heel's seem cool, sometimes they're impractical and cause undue pain when learning to use them.

  • I think it depends on the heel. If it looks nice with the outfit and is appropiate and comfortable to wear...whatever age you like. It is really up to you as a mom.

  • At least 14. It makes me uneasy every time I see school age girls wearing heels.

  • Girls can be klutzy and awkward in high heels. I would take the girl to the shoe store, and see how she does. I would do this a few weeks ahead, so that if she needs some practice walking in them, she has plenty of time, if she needs to wear them in the near future. I have found that when my nieces wear high heals, they walk and act more like young ladies than when they are running around in flats or in flip flops...
