Blue Ivy’s $800 Shoes Won’t Make Her Spoiled, But Her Dad Sure Will

OMG 13


Blue Ivy's fabulous footwear
Good fortune smiled down on little Blue Ivy Carter and delivered her to the richest couple in all of celebritydom, so let’s weigh the variables, shall we? Her parents are stankin’ rich + she’s their first child + she’s a girl (and we all know, whether we’re willing to admit it or not, that girl first children usually get sugary sweet treatment) + Jay-Z’s been waiting to be a papa (despite rumors that he already was).

That all adds up to the science that would explain why eight-month-old Blue Ivy Carter would have custom-made, bedazzled sneakers with a $798 price tag. Just a little something to tide her over until she starts walking, ya know. 

Back in the summer, Jay admitted to Oprah that his baby girl was probably going to be the “worst, spoiled little kid ever” and then capped that prediction off with a line on the song “Three Kings” alongside fellow rappers Rick Ross and Dr. Dre: “couldn't f--- with my daughter's room" and they "couldn't walk in my daughters socks.” Considering he also brags about killing the Hermes store in that same guest verse—and factoring in that his wife was spotted shopping with little B.I. on her hip at Bergdorf’s—seems like spoiled might be an understatement.

I’m pretty sure you can add up every pair of shoes I owned from infancy to high school graduation and the net worth wouldn’t even come close to $800. My mama is a frugal woman with the special talent for making a dollar holler. Jay-Z grew up poor too, but he’s lapped me on the track a few times. Just a few.

Still, I’m not so sure I can say if someone handed me a cool couple dozen millions that I would a) be able to stay vertical, much less put together a coherent witticism or b) immediately start showering Girl Child with flashy, pricey gifts and high-end finery. But it’s also so much easier to find yourself overluxuriating a chubby, kissable infant than a loveable but sometimes surly teenager. Sooo not the same thing.

So shop on, Blue Ivy, and we’ll just pray that your temper tantrums are minimal and somebody in that camp will learn how to say “no.” But seriously, I doubt it. In the meantime, I’ll be combing through Goodwill for whenever B.I. grows out of those booties…

If you had long money like Jayonce, would you spend major duckets on baby stuff like, say, $798 shoes?

no, a baby dont even need shoes, my 11 month old dont wear shoes, he dont need them, he cant walk yet, I would spoil him but not get him over priced stuff that I can get somewhere else for cheap, plus he wants toys, not shoes and clothes, he hates getting dressed

THERE ARE BABYS IN THIS WORLD WHO DON,T EVEN HAVE SHOES TO PUT ON THERE LITTLE FEET.SO IF I WAS GONNA SPEND THAT MUCH MONEY ON A PAIR OF SHOES AND OF COURSE I NEVER WOULD. I WOULD GIVE THAT MONEY TO CHARTY IN HER NAME

I can see where they are coming from, seeing as she is their first child, and people tend to go overboard with their first child. However, $800 for a pair of shoes for a baby that young? Even i was stupid rich, there is no way. My boys kill shoes in a matter of weeks. My daughter is only 4 months so no need there either. I wouldn't do it, but then again it's not my money. So to each his own.

That's ridiculous!

They have so much money that their $800 booties are probably the equivalent to my kid's $15 Payless sneakers. When you're that rich a few hundred isn't much. Yeah, I'd probably shop like that if I had their money.

I mean, even if I were materialistic enough to spend $800 on shoes for a kid who probably can't even walk yet, those shoes are FUG! Give me $800 and I'll make something a whole lot cuter

They worked really hard for their money, so I'm not going to say anything about the price tag. But ... I will say something about the style! HOW ARE THOSE $800!?!?! They're not even cute!

People with much less means spend $60 on baby shoes (my nephew has several baby Nike's) so I don't see the big deal. I love the sanctimony though "I'd give that money to charity", like regular folk never splurge on anything. Of course not. Lol

In a heartbeat! If I had as much money as them- combined their net worth is nearly 1 billion dollars, effectively making them the worlds richest celebrity couple- then of course I would spoil that child! $800 for a pair of shoes is nothing when you're that rich! I'm surprised they ONLY spent $800!

no.  I didn't put shoes on my girls until they started walking.  I think I furnished my first daughter's room for $800, and she still uses the dresser I bought for her before she was born!
