Except Him presumably didn't make that choice, Mimi already had heeled boots before him collected her. You can probably put the blame on Blossom, or whoever it was who had control over Mimi's childhood wardrobe.

No to mention giving her an excellent pair of addional ball busting weapons (they don't call the trope "combat stilettos" for nothing.)

As for the damage thing, yes, wearing high heels as a child can cause serious damage (actually, wearing high heels at any time can cause serios damage. and most child podiatrists say it's a bad idea(of course some child podiatrists say wearing shoes period is a bad idea, but lets leave that to the side) There are two major areas of damage. The heel itself throws the foot forward into an unnatural angle, which changes the gait a person takes. In the long run, that gait can cause changes and damage to the calf muscles and ankles. The other point is that many high heeled shoes have very narrow, pointy toes, which of course restricts the motion and puts pressure on your ownand can lead to malformations ("Hammer Toes" ) and possible malformed bones.
Actually if Him really wanted to be that kind of a dick , he might have gone the whole "Golden Lotus Footbinding" thing, though he clearly didn't (if he had, Mimi's feet would be about 2 inches long, and she wouldn't be able to walk, period).
And as I mentioned, this may be normal. Minnie is after all going to get a pair of heeled boots in the future (and not that many years in the future either) and may wear platforms now, which have similar foot damaging properties (I have never been able to tell if Minnie's current shoes are platform, or whether Bleed just draws his mary janes really clunky.)
