Katie Holmes Defends Putting Suri in High Heels

 PPNY/GSNY/Splash News Online

Katie Holmes doesn't think there's anything wrong with dressing her 3-year-old daughter Suri in high heels.

"Like every little girl, she loves my high heels," she tells Access Hollywood.

After Suri was spotted wearing high heels on multiple occasions, critics complained that the footwear could be detrimental to her physical development. "A common side effect of adults wearing heels too often is the tightening or shortening of the Achilles tendon," New York podiatrist Dr. Oliver Zong told Fox News.

But Holmes, 30, insists Suri's heels are supportive.

"They are actually ballroom dancing shoes for kids," she tells Access. "I found them for her and she loves them."

Suri also "loves dancing and singing and she's just a joy," Holmes told Extra. "She loves it all."

Tom Cruise's wife said they are all gearing up for a "big family Christmas" in Los Angeles this year. "I love Christmas," Holmes said. "It's my favorite."
