Back to school shopping is hard especially as my kids get older they are wanting different things then they used to and their style is changing especially with my oldest. No longer is it “cool” to wear the old styles of last year and the new styles are what she is wanting to wear. As you all know shoes are one thing that I am very picky about, the shoe must bend so after that test the rest is all just pluses for us.
The new Bella Ballerina: Curtsies by Sketchers meet all of our needs, my needs of bendable shoes and her “need” to make a fashion statement. Along with being the fashion statement that my daughter wants to make she is loving that the bottom of the sole has the a nifty disc on the bottom that gives these Ballerina sneakers their name, it makes you able to spin like a ballerina with ease! While you might think that the spin thing on the bottom would make the soles slippery when walking on surfaces like linoleum and hard wood floors, they don’t and if you are concerned about having your floors scuffed you don’t need to be they leave no marks on your floor if you child is spinning in them 🙂
Making outfits that my daughter loves is easy with these shoes, since there are multiple different colors and sparkly she can pair them with a skirt or a pair of jeans and a shirt. Her school doesn’t allow kids to wear anything other then sneakers on gym days so these are perfect for having a cute outfit when she has gym. The only thing I would change about them is that they had Velcro instead of laces since we are still working on learning to tie our shoes, but that is nothing that a quick double not doesn’t fit 🙂 Overall we love them, my daughter says every girl that wants to be a fashionable ballerina should have a pair and as a mom I will have to agree with her statement 🙂
