Worth The Cost? Bella Ballerina Shoes by Skechers
LaLa (age 4) recently got a pair of Bella Ballerina Prima Princess Sneakers by Skechers for her birthday and she was so excited! Seriously, she just turned 4 and was asking for these shoes for months.
I had a hard time buying shoes that retail for around $40 when she has lately been outgrowing shoes about every 2 months! So, Nonna to the rescue. She bought the Light Pink/Hot Pink model:
These shoes are marketed to girls ages 4 and up and the commercials show a cartoon girl who can spin just like a ballerina in these shoes. In reality, the spinner (see below) is just a plastic insert embedded in the ball of the shoe so that when your daughter goes on her toes on one foot she can twirl around.
I have to say that the overall quality of these shoes is good and consistent with the Skechers brand name, and for all the joy she has gotten over showing them off to friends, they might....just might...be worth the high price.
