Shoes or accident waiting to happen?

I ran across these shoes and am thinking about buying them for my seven-and-a-half-year-old. They're cute and not full price. Both huge factors for me in any purchase.

The problem is my daughter is not the most gross motor skilled child in the world. We've avoided slip-on sandals and shoes up to now to avoid any mishaps. I'm thinking she might be old enough though now, I certainly remember my beloved pair of red Dr. Scholl's I wore everyday the summer between second and third grade.

Anyone have a child who couldn't quite get the hang of flip flops but then eventually did?
