Plae Shoes Size Chart
All sizes published on our website are US sizes. Please note that size availability varies by style. Make sure to refer to our kids’ shoe size conversion chart below if you have any questions about your child’s foot length and the corresponding size in European, or UK sizing.
If your child has a fuller foot or a higher instep, you may need to go up a tab size. If your child has a very narrow foot or low instep, you may want to go down a size. If you require different tabs please email us.
How should I measure my child's feet for the best fit?
We know how challenging it is to get the right fit. Just measure the length of your child's foot and match it to the cm size on the chart below. Still got questions about fit? No worries, just send us an email.
What about orthotics and AFOs?
We've had many enquiries about whether plae kids shoes will work with orthotics and AFOs. The unique design and engineering of plae shoes and interchangeable tabs allow for accommodation of orthotics and AFOs. A wider shoe opening allows for easy entry. The insoles can be removed, and a wider toe box gives you that extra needed space. The interchangeable tabs (velcro straps) come in different lengths including extra-long to allow for a custom fit. learn about PLAE'S unique design and engineering for orthotics and AFOs here.

How do I care for plae shoes and tabs?
Kids’ shoes get dirty, that’s why plae shoes are washable*
• for suede, nylon, mesh, and synthetic uppers, machine wash separately in cold gentle cycle with a gentle detergent. do not put in the dryer or tumble dryer. use small suede brush to remove excess dirt if desired.
• insoles can also be machine-washed in cold gentle cycle either left in shoe, or removed and washed separately.
• dry naturally, avoiding direct sun.
• for all over leather styles, wipe down with slightly damp washcloth and leave to dry, avoiding sun.
