It’s time to take a look at shoes today, ladies and gentlemen… the costume kind, that is! And GIRLS dress up shoes in particular! Shoes are pretty special accessories for most ladies, I think… and our little ladies – our girls – are no different.
If you have a little girl in your house who loves to play dress up, especially dress up along the lines of All Things Princess, then you’ll know that shoes are a pretty important part of the outfit… after all, the perfect princess costume really only comes together perfectly when the perfect shoes are daintily placed on her feet. Who would Cinderella be without her glass slippers?
Addressing The Sizing Question. Her Feet Keep Growing…!
There are many different girls dress up shoes out there, but thankfully, the designers of the majority of them have thought through the fact that kids feet GROW and GROW and GROW. Most girls dress up shoes are sort of “one-size-fits-all” or “ranging from size X to XY”, believe it or not. They come with either no straps (so her little foot can just tuck into the tighter top of the shoe and sit on the flat part of the back at whichever spot it lands), or with an adjustable strap that will help the shoe fit the growing foot for quite a while.
Are There Options Other Than Disney Princess?
I hear your frustration. Disney Princess stuff is everywhere, is it not? Perhaps the little girl you’re shopping for hasn’t (yet) been exposed to Ariel, Belle, Elsa, Snow White, and the other ladies in the line. Perhaps you’re just not a fan of introducing brand stuff and/or filling their heads with Hollywood at such a young age as 3. Perhaps you’re just wanting some “Generic” shoes that will match the slew of princess dresses in her closet.
THANKFULLY, there ARE generic princess shoes, just as there are some beautiful generic princess dresses.
Let’s take a look at some really cute generic girls dress up shoes options.

What Are Top-Selling Disney Princess Shoes? “My Little Girl LOVES The Princesses!”
The marketers at Disney certainly knew what they were doing when they launched the Disney Princesses brand. It’s brilliant. Little girls want to watch them, dress like them, carry them everywhere, decorate with them, read about them… really, BE them. And so, you KNOW your little girl, who loves her Disney Princesses, will go crazy over Disney Princess Shoes. And really… doesn’t every girl need a pair of (pretend) glass slippers like Cinderella?
I’ve dug around on Amazon.com and here are 5 of the highest reviewed individual Disney Princess Shoes. Most are made by Disguise or Disney – good quality, sizing straps on the back, gorgeous detailing, and decent prices for what you’re getting. Check them out by clicking the links!
