I would have to agree with you. Our littlest just turned 4 and he is not wearing them this year. (although he has a pair of hand me downs...) I'm a little sad about it-
I remember going to the "shoe store" to buy my daughter hers every summer. And then she discovered flip flops - kind of sad when they grow out of this stage...but I've been noticing the teens in our area are wearing them again, so maybe after a few years, she will go back? Adorable little piggies she has there.
