5 WINTER WAYS TO STYLE IN YOUR PKs.

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 SIZING - FIND YOUR SIZE

FOR BEST RESULTS... 

For ideal and best fit, it's always recommended you have around 10-12mms of space in front of your toes. Our size chart is specific to our footwear, and may differ from your usual footwear.

If needing further instructions on "How to Measure" please scroll down below the size charts.

Once you have measured, please take a good look at the info we have provided on our size charts. 

 

PK BABY + TODDLER SIZE CHARTPK SIZE CHART - THE KIDS
PK SIZE CHART - BIG KIDS
PK SIZE CHART - GROWN UPS

 

HOW TO MEASURE

Stand with feet on a piece of paper, and mark where the end of the longest toe/s are, and middle point of the back of the heel. 

Use a ruler to measure between those two points. (Use your longest foot measurement to choose a size) 

If socks will be worn in the shoes, pop on the socks and then measure in the same manner. 

We also include a width measurement across the widest part of the shoe, this is a measurement of the FLATTEST part of the sole, so there is always more available space than stated, as the sole curves out and up giving your feet more room to spread.

We also have a natural rubber sole that is able to flex with a foot, which helps accomodate feet that have more width. 

While the available length measurements are the same across all styles, the upper construction affects the fit and feel of the shoe. 

See HERE for a more detailed "FIT and FEEL" description of each of our PaperKrane styles.
