Approaching footwear design from a new perspective, PLAE takes note of the crucial differences between a child’s foot and an adult’s. Instead of scaling down adult shoes, PLAE’s research led them to the realization that a child’s foot is mainly cartilage until they grow older. In that vein, they developed shoes designed around the foot’s soft tissue formation, including ankle-foot braces that keep little feet steady. Appealing to kids’, PLAE offers a customizable option, letting kids choose their own velcro tabs in a variety of fun, playful designs.
