Did You Wear These Ugly Shoes as a Kid? [Photos]

Do you ever look back at old photos of yourself as a kid and think, what was I wearing? Luckily, we grew up in the 90s, which is an excellent excuse for horrible fashion choices. So many awful things were happening in fashion then. Plus, when you were little, your parents dressed you. So you can blame it on them.

One thing in particular that little kids get away with is ugly shoes. You know, like how Crocs are horrific on adults but kind of cute on toddlers? So many of the shoes we wore as kids seemed awesome at the time, but were really atrocious. Click through the gallery for pictures of shoes that we think should stay in your past. Meaning that you really should get rid of them if you still have a pair.

      Yes! I had jelly shoes and they were amazing. They came back in style a couple years ago, right? At least I thought they did, I'm usually behind the trends so who knows. I'm glad we both agree that crocs are hideous. Amen.

      Oh my god, jellies are the worst. Not because of how they look, but because they made me a total klutz. Granted, I was like 6 or 7, but every time I wore them I would trip and skin my knees. Every. Time.
