OverviewSuggest Edit

PLAE designs and sells washable and customizable kids’ shoes with interchangeable tabs. The interchangeable tabs adjust to accommodate thinner, wider and thicker feet; and allow kids to customize their shoes with different color, material, and print options. The shoes come with a toe guard, pull tab, and flexible sole. They are engineered to follow the natural contour of a child’s foot, leaving the cartilage and fledgling bone room to grow its own way.
