Plae

WHAT MAKES PLAE SHOES GOOD FOR KIDS’ FEET?

Plae shoes are built with kids biomechanics in mind. They’re designed with rounded edges and flexible soles for smoother and more balanced movement. They have reflexive traction which grips on loose earth without compromising contact on hard surfaces. Our shoes are durable and comfortable while featuring removable contoured insoles as well as breathable and washable materials made especially for children.

 

ORTHOTICS SUPPORT

 
most kids shoes are not made to accommodate AFOs (ankle foot orthotics). PLAE shoes are different, here’s why…

  • No other kids shoe has a removable tab feature. our tabs come in 4 lengths: use a shorter
    strap for a narrow foot, or a longer strap for a high instep, wide foot, or AFO.
  • Most non-AFO shoes don’t open up wide enough for orthotics. our tongue is designed to
    open up completely and our insoles are removable, making for easy entry in and out!
  • Most shoes made for AFOs aren’t, shall we say – easy on the eyes? let’s face it, every kid wants to be stylish and PLAE shoes let them do just that!
