Plae shoes are a great new brand of trainers and play shoes from the US. They’ve been designed to follow the natural contour of a child's foot with a good width to the toe box whilst coming in narrower across the mid foot to suit narrow and medium width feet really nicely. They also come with a removable insole and the option to change the Velcro tabs to give a really good adjustment to the fit.
The flexible soles are nice and flat with no internal seams and, with the insole removed, zero drop. The soles are also hard wearing and use dynamic traction sole treads to ensure a good grip. The rest of the shoe is designed to elite athlete standards: with durable toe guards, and wicking, washable anti-microbial inserts. Great care has been taken to source responsible, recycled, and non-toxic materials and there are some good vegan options in the range.
