High heels are great for kids because they’re easy to style, they make a pair look great and they’re great for dressing up for Halloween, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal Pediatrics.
The study, which examined high heels worn by 5,000 children ages 5 to 12, found that, overall, the high heel trend is growing.
“Parents are increasingly adopting these types of items as a way to express their kids’ personalities and express themselves, whether it’s Halloween, birthday parties or a summer event,” Dr. Deborah K. D’Angelo, lead author of the study, said in a statement.
“High heels have become an appealing style choice for teens and adults alike.
They are a fun and fashionable accessory for kids that is fun to wear and comfortable to wear.”
The researchers used data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics to track the popularity of high heels.
The study looked at whether there was a link between the number of children wearing high heels and the prevalence of obesity, diabetes, asthma, and other conditions among the children.
It also looked at trends in the popularity and cost of high heel styles over time.
The researchers found that as the popularity for high heels increased, the prevalence in the U-shaped pattern increased as well.
In other words, the more children wore high heels over time, the less likely they were to develop obesity, asthma or diabetes, the study found.
