if she really wanted them?
My kids needed new shoes, My 3 year old DD does not like girly things and is love with hulk. She BEGGED me for these shoes. I bought them for her. DD showed my mom all happy and mom rolled her eyes and told me that I need to buy her girl shoes....I told her she didn't want girl shoes and loved these ones....Plus she is 3 so who cares? What say you?
(and if you don't buy your kids character shoes would you buy your DD "boy shoes" from the boy section if she really wanted them?)
