In the season of Christmas pageants, school recitals and church functions, your little girl needs a festive pair of holiday shoes to match her pretty dress. Fortunately, there are a number of cute holiday shoes for girls that won't break the bank. From sparkly red glitter to black patent leather, here are five our our favorites.
Available in Target stores and on Target.com for only $14.99, the Hello Kitty Pink Glitter Ballet Flat is a clear winner. This charming slip-on is covered with multicolored sparkles and features a metallic pink band and bow for a Mary Jane look. A metal Hello Kitty charm hangs from the bow, which is sure to delight girly-girls. With a round toe and cushioned, tagless footbed, this adorable sparkly flat is as comfortable as it is stylish.
The Xhilaration Hummingbird is another glittery Target find for the shimmer-loving girl on your Christmas list. This round-toed slip-on flat is ideal for mixing and matching, since it comes in seven different colors -- pink, red, navy blue, silver, black, bronze and gold. Also retailing for $14.99, the Xhilaration Hummingbird features a cushioned footbed and a textured, non-slip sole.
Act now to get the gorgeous retro Brash Brandy Bow Flat from Payless Shoesource. This leopard-print fabric flat features a large red bow at the toe, combining a '50s vibe with contemporary styling. A solid blue version is also available. Buy the shoes for $24.99 and pair them with Payless' other Brash accessories, including hair bows, crocheted brooches, silk flower headbands and cute silver necklaces, earrings and rings.
From Nina Shoes comes a bright red toddler dress flat with a ruffled strap. This medium-width patent-leather shoe features a chunky black sole and a ribbon ruffle around the velcro strap. The back of the heel has extra padding to keep it from rubbing blisters as your little one takes her first steps onto the holiday stage. The Nina Ruffle Bow Flat is available in toddler sizes 5-8 for $44.99 at sophiastyle.com.
We adore the Eli Patricia Mary Jane, available from Glamkidz Boutique for $104.99. This eyecatching Spanish design comes in an apricot-gold leather and brown suede combination, with a brown boe and an apricot toe cap. The apricot strap closes at the side with a traditional silver buckle. Featuring a supinator for arch support, the Eli Patricia comes in infant, toddler and youth sizes, with toddler sizes costing an additional $8 and youth an additional $14. It may be pricey, but the striking beauty of the shoe is worth the splurge, especially for girls who need to wear dress shoes more often.
Whether your little girl is the star of the school Christmas play or just going to Grandma's for holiday dinner, a cute pair of shoes is sure to be a welcome gift. After all, who doesn't like to look gorgeous from the bows in her hair down to the tips of her toes?
