11 Pairs of Ruby Red Slippers and Sparkly Shoes

By caseymullins |

Addie has had wide feet from the womb. She has always needed shoes that are a little harder to come by, ones that fit her high arches and wide toes. The wrong pair of shoes will leave her with blisters, sores and the whines. She also happens to be the fanciest little girl I know, meaning regular old shoes are not going to be found on her feet. The shinier and more glittery? The better.

My dad watched ‘The Wizard of Oz’ with her and I she got her first pair of ruby slippers on the morning of her third birthday. She didn’t take them off until her toes were nearly bleeding from being squished into them. Oh, how I looked high and low for a replacement pair. You see, kids, four years ago sparkly shoes weren’t as easy to come by. Once I finally found some I bought them in two sizes — unfortunately, she has outgrown both pairs.

In my search for the next great ruby slipper, here’s some of my finds, some are red, some are striped … and all of them are sparkly.
