The lady can still rock a pair of skinny jeans like no one’s business. If there’s a “German Shepherd” joke to be made here, we confess it eludes us. Love the boots, though. Hate her for subjecting her kids to Crocs.

      Mom with an edge = love. Crocs = burning, intense hate. Klum/Seal kids = adorable.
      That is all.

      It’s certainly an attention-grabbing t-shirt, I’ll give her that. Still can’t get my mother’s line, “Only tramps wear heels with jeans” out of my head, and it’s got to be what, 40 years now? 
      Crocs — yeah — I used to be a preschool teacher, and we HATED them. They fall off, the kids can’t run as well in them as they can in sneakers or plain old shoes, and they get playground (wood) chips stuck in them every six seconds, causing wailing and fussing and even the occasional splinter or injury. I’ll never understand why parents see them as actual shoes. They’re more like flipflops with covered toes. 

      • Rachelle Neame

        The same thing happened to me! Kids I got in my old day camp were always tripping up trying to run in Crocs. And you NEED the kids to be able to run in order to keep a sane day camp/nursery/childcare thing going on. My goodness.

      Can we talk about how much the model’s makeup scares me? It’s as if someone at the shoot said, “Yeah, make the girl in the dog shirt look like a meth addict.” When bad makeup happens to pretty people, indeed!

          I found teeny tiny five-fingers in pink for my 6-year-old. They’re completely adorable and she loves them. But yeah, I know we won’t be winning any fashion competitions any time soon.

          Do you have children?  If so, are they old enough to speak and give opinions and commentary on things?  I learned to be careful of proclamations about kids after I had them.  There is no place for Crocs at school or on trips to the zoo, museum, etc.  But, running quick errands?  They are easier than getting a 4-year old to put on his socks and shoes and get out the door in a timely manner.  Plus, you know, he kinda likes them on the weekend.  Heidi has 4 kids, all with their own opinions in life.  I’m cuttiing her slack on the crocs, as I’ve never seen HER wear them.

          • Anonymous

            I second that. I never bought anything pink for my daughter (not easy), until she was about three and decided that it was the only color she’d wear. Rather than wrestling her into the clothes I decided she should wear, which doesn’t work anyway, she was head to to hot pink for a year and a half. She’s outgrown this, thankfully, but unless you’re prepared to beat your child, which I am not, sometimes a compromise on Crocs is in order. Luckily my daughter has also decided Crocs aren’t cool anymore, but I almost wish they were as it totally saves time.

          as someone with wonky pinky toes, i loooove my five fingers. they’re the only running shoes i’ve found that don’t cause some kind of blister on the little guys.

          plus maybe you should consider letting your kids develop their own sense of style instead of forcing yours on them.

          My Vibram Fivefingers aren’t a fashion statement but they are kinda cute in an odd way.  More important, best workout shoes ever.  Exercising the way nature intended means less knee and hip injuries.  That seems more important than fashion, imho.

          Really? I thought I kept hearing stories about them getting caught in escalators. Sounded like something out of a horror film. Maybe that’s just apocryphal, but I would certainly research the topic thoroughly if I had kids who wanted to wear them…

            Exactly! I knew there was a whole website dedicated to Croc injuries, not for the squeamish…
            As for Miss Heidi ~ she is looking fierce body-wise, but damn! can’t she put on a little make-up? I don’t mean she needs the full-on ” I was made up at gunpoint at the Clinique Counter” look, just some lip gloss and eyelashes would do it for me…she’s washed out.

            • Anonymous

              Yah. And Snopes (which I love) points out that any kind of shoe or garment can be a problem. Making your kid behave on the escalator… just one of many wonderful things parents have to be terrified about. Try googling swimming pool drain accidents sometime. I couldn’t sleep for a week. My point being that anything can be a hazard. As I said, we’ve had two escalator entrapments and neither involved Crocs. Stuff happens (to paraphrase Forest Gump).

         I’m going to have to get me a Swedish Chef shirt now.  (OK, I’m way less Swedish than Heidi is German. And I’m a decent home cook, not a professional chef. But that’s the only parallel I came up with ;-)

      She looks very cool.  Casually chic. 

      I really don’t hate Crocs.  I actually own a pair and they are very comfy.  As an adult, however, I understand that there is a time and place for them.  I think kids can get away with wearing them more often, though.  An earlier comment said something about school and I agree.  You shouldn’t let your kids wear them if they will be running or doing P.E style activities.  But out running some errands with Mom?  Why not?  I mean, it could be worse.  They could be wearing them with socks.

            The work line Crocs are amazing for standing all day, especially if there’s a lot of fluid spill potential like kitchen/hospital work. I’ve been wearing my Mercys at work for almost a year now, and I’m yet to get lower back pain in them after standing all day.

            They’re still ugly though – LOL. Combined with the scrubs I have to wear, no wonder my wardrobe has started to get more “girly” pieces in it.

        I love my Crocs, I admit. I do have the Mary Jane style, however, which are slimmer and stay on better, and I’m just walking from my house to the school, or around the grocery store. They suck in gravel, but so do any sandal type shoes. My daughter had some, also Mary Jane style, and they were adorable on her. To each their own, I guess.

      Crocs are of such ugliness that it irradiates to everything on the person; if the person is a kid, then it goes to the responsible adult. 

      Too bad, because Heidi’s jeans and boots are killa. I cannot get behind the dog though. I bet she’ll see that sweater in a year and wonder wtf she was thinking. 

    • http://twitter.com/ILikeShiny Cindi Williams

      Boots and jeans are great. I don’t care what label you throw on the sweater, however; it still looks etsy if etsy were around in 1978.

      Rule #1 with kids: pick your battles.  If wearing Crocs will get you out the door and on with the day, then fine by this mom.  Heidi looks great, but why is she in jeans, long sleeves & boots and the kids are in summer clothes?

      A discussion of childrens footwear should only be concerned with the functionality of the shoe. Crocs ain’t perfect, but they’re not the worst thing either. Especially if the kids are just running errands.

      Hey!  Crocs are perfect kid shoes, not least because they can put them on their own damn selves from an early age. 

      That’s not what I was going to say, though — I was going to ask why an allegedly high-fashion sweater has a paint-by-numbers dog head on the front.  Why is that worth several months’ normal-people salary (or more), exactly?

      The boots look great – except something looks ridiculously OFF in these pics. 

      The extreme heel height and arch would make it seem almost like (point/toe) ballerina level.  and then looking the last pic where her calf muscle is and it looks like her ankle is near the cuff, her foot would have to be like 18 inches long for this to make sense visually to me.

      I hate crocs, I think they’re hideous.  But as a mom of kids around the same age as Heidi’s, I totally understand why her’s are wearing them.  Easy, comfy, cheap.  But I would never  wear a pair, and I’d laugh hysterically if Heidi herself was wearing them. Anyone under 13 gets a buy on those.

      Crocs are like diapers. They’re fine when you’re really young. They’re probably acceptable when you’re over 90 and have medical issues. It’s the years in between when they’re unacceptable.

      Heidi might not be responsible for the Crocs. Have you tried arguing with your kid about what they’re going to wear? It’s an exhausting process and the energy is better saved for getting them to eat their vegetables. You have to pick your battles. 

      I think she looks really tired in these photos and not her usual radiant self. I realize that she doesn’t have any make up on (or its really minimal), but still. Looks like she could use a good night’s sleep.

      That sweater is very…80s. And not in a good way! And just to be a dissenting voice, I really don’t like those boots, they make her feet look oddly elongated, like she’s got flippers in there or something. I can tell they’re very fashionable but those are some weird proportions going on there!  Crocs – my daughter loves them what can I say? I know the feet people say they’re awful for small feet, and they’ve caused more injuries while running among the small set than anything else I know, but if it means one less fight in the morning getting her off to school she can wear them. They tend to take them off and run barefoot anyways, kids aren’t stupid enough to wear uncomfortable shoes – unlike us adults!

        This mama was so pleased when she managed to score some Missoni ballet flats for her daughter off the Target website.  Kid hasn’t worn them once because she finds them too uncomfortable after her Keens.

        I guess if it doesn’t matter to you what your child’s preschool teacher knows from her many years of experience, then by all means allow your child to go to preschool unable to run and play as freely as children wearing shoes or sneakers. Right up there with the moms who let their little girls wear dress-up high heels to school, without packing real shoes and making sure the teacher knows the kid has them. I always thought my preschool director showed a serious lack of spine not laying down a no-Crocs rule. It would have saved a lot of tears and trips to the bathroom to fix boo-boos.

          You don’t know me and you certainly do not know what matters to me. My kids always wore sneakers and shoes to school. When they were in preschool, Crocs hadn’t even been invented. And had they been, I would have been perfectly capable of making my own decisions about whether they were suitable or not.

          I’m pretty sure that T and Lo were alluding to the “aesthetic” value of Crocs (or lack thereof), not safety concerns. They are comfortable and colorful and all of the kids in my neighborhood who have been wearing them happily all summer have managed to survive. I guess they all have horrible parents who don’t listen to their preschool teachers.

      Wearing Crocs has made my feet stronger because my toes have to be active while walking in such a large shoe.  Having stronger feet helps a lot with my plantar facistis.  Of course the plantar facistis may have come from years of high heels.  Sure Crocs are kind of hideous but wincing in pain while walking wasn’t pretty either.

          Last year I also got a horrible case of plantar fascitis. I went to Walmart and picked up some inexpensive Dr. Scholl’s inserts for PF and after wearing them a couple of days, there was a remarkable difference. I read later they are as effective as the expensive ones you get when you go to a doctor. You might want to give them a try also.

        That’s the reason I wear wooden Bstad clogs–they strengthen all your foot muscles by forcing your toes to hang onto them while walking.  And nothing beats them for back support.  They are kinda ugly, too, but my feet love them so I’ll continure to wear them!  Of course–never for a party or dinner–just while running errands and/or spending long hours in the kitchen.

      Maybe the kid picked her own Crocs. Gotta be honest — those things are insanely comfortable. I had foot surgery a few months ago, and my Crocs are the only things that fit and are comfortable on my swollen foot. After trying to stuff the swollen (surgeried) one into anything attractive, I have been lighting candles to thank whoever is out there for sending me Crocs.

      I’m in a bad mood (work-related), so I’ll be the dissenting voice here…

      I have several pairs of crocs.  If you work on your feet 12 hours a day, you would understand wearing them.  I have to wear accursed steel toes at this job though, groan.

      And those jeans just look like a yeast infection waiting to happen to me.

      The top is stupid. But this woman is so genetically blessed, she makes literally makes me want to cry. There is just nothing else to be said.

      Sigh. Wish I looked like that in skinny jeans. I would never wear the top, though. I have a Shepherd mix and I’d look like the weird dog lady wearing my dog on her shirt.

      As for the Crocs, my daughter BEGGED me for a pink pair when she about 7. I gave in. Now she has a plain black pair (no holes) for garden work and tending the chickens. At 12, I don’t think she’d be seen in them outside the house.

      I think deep down we ALL wish we could look so effortless, cool and naturally gorgeous when just out running the kiddos to Trader joes.  Seriously, individually, I may not love any of the peices but somehow, on Heidi, it just looks natural and easy.

    • Addicted2Glamour

      The sweater teeters on Crafts Class. But she is working the Hell out of those jeans and the boots are oh-so-yummy.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      That she can walk out of the house barefaced in a DOG SWEATER and look that incredible defies reason.  I need those boots and I need to slap whoever is getting her makeup mostly wrong this season.

      (Also: Let the kids have their crocs.  Anything that avoids kid shoe funk is ok by me.)

    • Jessica Goldstein

      I hate the top but still think she looks amazing. You are correct that she wears jeans better than anyone, including many jeans models! Forget Victoria’s Secret, why hasn’t Lucky or some other jeans brand made her their face? As for Crocs, I hate them, but kids love them. Fortunately, I can honestly tell my son that he can’t wear them because his foot is skinny and they give him blisters.

      She looks great.  Wonder why she doesn’t wear more pants on the show.  She should.

      Heidi tends to look better in more casual stuff i think, she just really works the casual looks.

      the only thing i have to say is kids are never ~subjected to crocs. as a nanny and former daycare worker, kids love the hell out of crocs. hahaand they are easy to get on and off, good for kids. oh lawd i never thought i would see the day i would be defending crocs. hate myself a little.

        That is why children have adults around! For fashion discipline!  lol, my 5 year old nephew LOVES his crocs.

      The most important takeaway about Crocs: they do actually have relatively cute rubber flats that are not nearly as monstrous as the originals. (Emphasis on the “relatively” – they are still rubber shoes.) If you are wearing the clunky classics, you are still unnecessarily wearing a fug, dumpy shoe, since the comfort and durability concerns are moot. If you are wearing Crocs that look like Crocs…that is not really cool. (Kids don’t count. I get why kids like them. I don’t really get why moms like them. Do you want to wear your daughters’ sparkly butterfly jeans too?) Gardening could be ok in them. Leaving your garden in them…not so much. It’s like pajama pants at the grocery store. We all know how long it takes to put on real pants and real shoes, and we all know that you understandably tired moms and lazy college students have the same 60 seconds total it takes to get both tasks accomplished.

      Is it me, or did she get an extra shot of sassiness since she’s lost weight?  She’s werQin it for sure.

      I’m largely ethnically German. In Europe people spoke German to me as a first guess. And I like the way I look, but it is nothing like Heidi. I can’t even see the shoes or the shirt because she is so amazing looking, even in casual clothes.

      Sorry the boots are just too high for me. It just doesn’t look right but I love the sweater and jeans and her hair – she’s lovely.

      As for the crocs: you think she is ‘subjecting her children to crocs.’ Please. They are subjecting her. Every day they want to wear their crocs and I say, ‘why don’t you put on your pretty sandals or wear your new sneakers?’ but until it gets cold, I might as well be suggesting they wear a top hat and tails. Of all the battles I have to have with my children every day, what they are putting on their feet is just not a priority. Half the time we get in the car and I panic and say, ‘is everyone wearing shoes?’ Cause if they are, that’s good enough for me.

      I on the other hand would not be caught dead in them.

      TLo. Crocs are the perfect kids shoes. And they only look cute on children anyways, so it’s ok.  I like that she put her kiddos in some normal cheapie shoes like all moms do. However she looks way better than any other mom I know. Bitch.

      heidi looks svelte and beautiful here, but she looks a little pissed off.  i think she’s marching her kids out to the car one by one so they’ll stop hitting each other for a minute.  but she’s still wearing those screaming high boots!

      this is one of those photos where her face looks different to me, like i might not recognize her without the captions (but i’ll never forget those legs).  someone commented about possible surgical work, but i think maybe it’s just weight loss.  i adore the sweater, but then i’m a total dog nut.  i believe dogs are the creator’s finest work.  it’s my religion. dog is my co-pilot.

      I don’t have a problem with Crocs on young children. If there’s one demographic that should wear Crocs, it’s them. Them and nurses. 

      • Anonymous

        and I find them totally acceptable for puttering around a garden or walking on the beach.  They are easy to rinse off.  I won’t let my children play on the playground with them or wear them to school.  They are beach/pool/run errands with mom shoes.

    • Now I am The Bee

      Oh Crocs are fine on kids.  They love them–comfy and funny all at once.  Heidi looks good–but I can’t imagine how she is bopping around town and going to the playground in those 5 inch heels.  Girl must have some strong ankles….

      Heidi looks fabulous.  And I have to agree with TLo and disagree with the commentariat; Crocs are never ok.  On anyone.  Ever.

      I hate crocs, but they are acceptable on children. So I’m okay with this.

      As Manolo the Shoeblogger reminds us Cros are ok on people under the age of 12.  On the other hand I don’t understand why anyone wants to wear a dogs face on their torso.

      There are very few people who can wear a borderline Cosby sweater and manage to make it look chic and hip.  It’s the “Oh I just threw on a sweater and some jeans with a pair of boots to pick up the kids and run errands.”  Only when I do it, it’s a sweater I bought @ target and banana republic jeans that are too tight because I’ve gained weight and haven’t bothered to buy new ones.  In short, it’s what all of us wish we could look like running errands:  chic without trying too hard.

      As for the Crocs – I will defend them once again – they are some of the most practical shoes out there for kids and adults if your day involves getting wet, going to the beach, getting in and out of boats or climbing around on rocks.  They provide incredible traction which also make them great for climbing around on playground equipment.  Furthermore, kids love them, so as a mom you have to choose your battles.

      That sweater is pretty ugly in my eyes – it reminds me of those super heavy, super plush blankets you see at dusty roadside markets, picturing landscapes with animals.
       
      As for the Crocs, I find it easy to avoid that battle with my child because I don’t purchase them. My 75 year-old father wears them when working in his vegetable garden. I guess I put them in the same category as steel-toed boots – for folks with specific work needs, like nurses or chefs.

      I love it when celebrities with major money and fashion sense let their kids wear whatever they want. It’s really cute.

      Sorry, but Crocs are very comfortable. You just have to embrace the ugly.

    • oohsparkley!

      I’ve seen some comment wishing Heidi had put some makeup on, but I was super jealous of how great she looked without any!  I never leave the house without at least mascara or eyeliner because without I have invisible lashes and rabbitty eyes.  This isn’t a formal photo-op so I think she looks fab.

      Krist those boots are fierce.  And hate to break it to you TLO, but kids love crocs.  They’re comfy and come in bright colors and are virtually indestructible.  I doubt her kids are forced to wear them so much as they force her to watch them wear them.

      I loathe crocs, but love that her kids are wearing ‘normal’ kids clothes.  PLus, Leni looks like a kid, not a teenager.   I wish more people would remember that kids are just kids!

      As for Frau Samuel, besides hating her for looking that awesome without the full make-up treatment, I like that she is willing to go a more natural route with her kids.   It’s refreshing, she doesn’t look like she just rolled out of bed, but the isn’t all made up.  Very nice.
