Hollywood actress Katie Holmes has come out in defence of her daughter wearing high heels saying it was her own footwear that inspired her.
Since the three-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Holmes was first spotted in public in her child-sized kitten heels earlier this fall, a debate was sparked on the Web and in parent's magazines over whether they could present a risk to the child's growth, AccessHollywood.com reported.
"She, like every little girl -- she loves my high heels. They are actually ballroom dancing shoes for kids, I found them for her and she loves them," Holmes said.
The 30-year-old Batman Begins actress has also founded the Dizzy Feet event over the weekend in support of the organisation she founded, which aims to help underprivileged youth realise their dreams of becoming professional dancers.
"I've been a fan of dancing my whole life, I met with Nigel and he asked me if I wanted to be a part this… in starting this," Holmes said.
