Pee Wee Pumps is a company that sells non-functional high heels for babies.

While some have criticised the business, others seem to think the products harmless.

What do you think? Are these heels cute, or just inappropriate?

Heels for little girls who are actually walking are really bad for their feet, and it annoys me that these are sold at all, let alone marketed as though they are suitable for everyday wear instead of as "party" shoes to be worn only sometimes.

Heels for babies are not quite so bad because they're not going to be walking in them, so it's just a bit of silly dressing up. I wouldn't buy them for my own child though as I think they're a bit tacky.
Totally inappropriate. Let babies be babies - they don't need to look sexy. I think this is dangerous territory, and it's even more so because, while some people think it's cute, others will certainly think and feel otherwise. Dare I say the 'p' word?

I used to watch a segment on an inventors tv show about crazy and useless inventions and perhaps that's where these belong. I think it's a bit early to be making fashion statements.
AWFUL! I think any little girl, under teen years, looks ridiculous in heels, no matter how small the heels are. What are the parents thinking?! And I think plastic shoes would make feet sweat, in summer! I wouldn’t mind little kids wearing there mother’s shoes, in their house, for dress ups, but that’s all.
You have to be kidding! I have never heard of these. That is insane. I would have thought bad for posture and foot development. In two words "totally inappropriate".
They're not actually meant for walking. They are soft shoes, and not the ones in the image. I wasn't sure about copyright, so went with safe option - Barbie shoes.

Totally inappropriate to the nth degree!

Humans', of ALL ages, should go barefoot as much as possible, for healthy feet!
LOL I don't even put any shoes on my kids until they can walk...and even then it's only if they are walking somewhere they might hurt their feet if they have no shoes - like on hot cement, at the park, or at the zoo. the over sexualisation of kids is insane and the idea of putting high heels on a baby is nuts to me.
Of course they are!
