Everyone’s up in arms over these photos of Katie Holmes and her daughter, Suri Cruise, at the beach taken last Memorial Day weekend.

Internet folks are lambasting Katie Holmes for wearing heels on the beach and making 5-year-old Suri wear heels while playing in the sand — or wear heels at all.

Here are the controversial photos:

I don’t believe that anyone will willingly wear heels to the beach. So, I’m guessing that Katie Holmes didn’t plan on going to the beach or walking on the sand when they went to this Memorial Day beach party.

Maybe the allure of the surf and the sea was too much for little Suri, so Katie Holmes let her play in the sand for a little bit.

But these are all just guesses, of course, and, honestly, if I were going to a party near a beach, I’d be wearing sandals and hoping that the party would come closer to the water.

No, the two didn’t swim, but they watched the waves in their heels. Suri wore a pair of inch-high sandals, while Katie wore some heeled woven booties from Givenchy.

Wow, all I can say is I wish I were so rich that I didn’t have to care about my $740 heels getting ruined after using them on the beach.

Seeing the mother-daughter duo bond and spend time together is nice, though I wish she had removed her shoes.

Now, speaking of the shoes, here’s a closer look at those Givenchy booties. They feature a woven upper that sits on a slim 3.25-inch heel. The style comes in brown and black. And as mentioned earlier, a pair will cost you a hefty $740.

If you want it, feel free to buy a pair if you can find it in your size. But please, for the love of shoes, take them off if you have to walk on the beach.
