IT'S TIME TO GO PKRAZY

Wazzup!! We have gone a little crazy this week… PK KRAZY, or PKRAZY to keep things concise.

PKRAZY planning our first ever EOFY sale!

Like, ermgherd, say whaaat?

#HighPitchScreams #Clapping #MaybeALittleEyeGouging

Our largest sale ever is upon us... it's not really hard to be our largest sale when it's only our 3rd in 6 years!

The pre-game nerves are well and truly setting in, but it wouldn't be drop day without those little butterflies in our tummies, do you get those like we do? For us it's wondering if there'll be a website issue, will an item oversell (cheers Shopify and your random glitches), will things load up ok... will the password protected page come down at the right time... And will anyone show up to the PK party?! Ha ha... 

 

As we click "publish" on this, our next MASSIVE order is steaming its way across the ocean to us, and we are so close to needing to move into bigger premises it’s not funny, it’s cool, but it’s def not funny… So close in fact that we decided to try clear everything out with a massive SALE so we can just stay put!

Soooo… We’re kicking it off today - FRIDAY, JUNE 29th @ 12:30PM AEST, and it’ll run for ONE week.

But get in quick because once things are gone, that’s it… you won’t be seeing them again!

We’ve even found the few last pairs of our GEN 1 PKs from our first drop last year… and they’ll be loaded up at ridiculously delicious prices!

We’ll even load up any seconds we have… Yup!

No codes necessary, everything will be adjusted. 

 

So yeah… can we tempt you to help us clear some space for what is to come? Jump online at 12:30 and snag yourself a big ol' bargain!

5 WINTER WAYS TO STYLE IN YOUR PKs.

If the last couple of days are anything to go by, then Melbourne is in for a cold winter! 

This is definitely a favourite time of the year, because it means layering up in warm clothing, beanies, wheat bags, and extra blankets on the bed.

Kids will still want to get out and play even though the weather might be starting to more closely resemble the inside of a fridge. So along with a pair of their flexi PKs, they need to be able to move and stay warm during the cooler seasons.

Here are a couple of cool layered looks for this autumn and winter, that still allow kids to be kids.

(We also add layers underneath... long sleeve thermals, singlets or tees depending on the temps.)

PK PHOTO SHOOT

ice cream pksWe recently had the pleasure of meeting up with Thu Pham Moore, one of our talented PK mums, who just happens to also be an amazing photographer. With her first trip to Melbourne booked for early August, (coinciding with the arrival of our first order of our new outsourced PKs) we decided there was no better time to book a shoot. 

We all met at Harbourtown, which, if you're from Melbourne, you'll know is probably the most deserted place in the city... making it the perfect place for a photoshoot involving 7 kids! The area lends itself to many different settings and backdrops as well, which we loved after scoping it out a month or so earlier. 

Here are a couple of pics from the day. Many thanks to Thu, and all the mums and kids that took part. We had a fun afternoon, and can't wait to see all of the photos!

PK HALLOWEEN 2016

FRANKIE PKS

SPOTLIGHT ON... FRANKIE. Another original PK creation!

Frank is back, rebooted, dismembered and ready to go in all his gory greatness. Flesh coloured suede soles add a deliciously monstrous element to this petrifying PK pair, whose motif is a smorgasbord of body parts arranged in an oh so kawaii fashion. Rich purple and pistachio details complete these ooey gooey booties for a fabulously flesh-eating finish. So get your zombie on and don these most scariest of soles ‘cause if you’re only left with feet at the end of Halloween you want to make sure they’re wearing Frankenboots.

Because the soles are genuine suede, they won't be machine washable. So please spot clean your shoes. There are suede cleaning kits on the market, and waterproofing sprays that you can get to lengthen the life and looks of your suede soles. 

Thinking of checking out the next restock? Check the size chart on our website carefully beforehand, and please make sure to order the size you need.

All booties are mainly crafted from high quality cotton, so will allow your little one's feet to breathe. They are designed to stay on, and in winter offer the perfect solution to keeping little socks on little feet! They're ideal for every stage of baby and toddlerhood, from crawling and cruising, to standing, strolling and playing.

Stay tuned for more PK Halloween sneak peeks and the restock date/time reveal! 

Are you following us on Instagram? Our official VIP hangout, PaperKrane HQ? And the PaperKrane Facebook page? These are the places where you'll find the most up to date info on all things PK!

FRONTIER RESTOCK

SATURDAY JULY 16th - 2PM AEST - The Frontier restock will load. From prairie to the wild west and rugged north... I've rounded up the coolest prints to create some of my fave PK high tops yet!

I've been working hard this year to prep as many pairs as humanly possible, and this month's restock is no exception... so don't miss out. The styles available are as always limited edition. So if you see something you like, go for it cause it most likely won't be back.

This month we're introducing the PK KREW tee and crew sweater, along with the bright on white PK BABE tees. The PK tote is back, with a new screen printed graphic, too!

Good luck with restock. I'll see you there! Kate xx

STREET vs GEEK RESTOCK!

Today is the day for the STREET vs GEEK PK restock! 

From Krazies to Potter PKs and everything in between, there's something to suit each geeky gangsta vying for a pair!

I'd like to thank Hadassah Hine, a PK mum and customer who is also a talented writer, for having some fun and writing up all the product descriptions this month! I think she's done an amazing job at bringing that aspect back to the PaperKrane website for me. 

Now... it's time to study for today's big test. Check out all the pairs available HERE Looking at getting a tee? There's limited stock left in our ace bronze PK high top print, so load that into your cart before the shoes load up at 12:30. That way you won't waste time adding it after and potentially lose the shoes you have. (We all know the cart doesn't hold stock till you clear that PayPal page and you're on the page adding your shipping details/discount codes/etc...)

Good luck today! Perhaps you may be best to study a little PK CHEMISTRY 101
