We asked Hannah to tell us a little about herself and why her chosen cause is so important to her.

"My name is Hannah and I am the owner of Cookies and Scream. I was so stoked when Kate + Zara chose to put my strawberry print on their shoes, little old me, now able to say I am actually wearing my art from head to toe lol. 

The Stroke Foundation is very dear to my heart because in 2020, during one of the covid lockdowns, my mum had a stroke. It was a truly difficult time and though we are lucky we didn't lose her, we definitely did lose parts of her.

As she learnt to walk again we realised she wasn't able to lift her feet in regular shoes, so we got her a pair of PaperKranes and she has never looked back. :) 

They are the only shoes she will now wear. 

When my sister was 29 she also suffered a stroke, another reason why I have chosen this foundation.

The stroke foundation (which can be found at strokefoundation.org.au) has been around for 25 years.

They are dedicated to advocating for access to innovative treatments, break through stroke research, increasing public awareness and recognition and more. 

Do you know the signs of stroke? F.A.S.T - 

Face (drooped)

Arms (can't be raised)

Speech (Slurred or confused). 

Time (is critical, outcomes are improved by acting asap - Call 000) 

 

You can find this and lots of other usual information and resources on their website

And you can find this amazing limited edition pair HERE - before they're gone!

PK SIZING - FIND YOUR SIZE

FOR BEST RESULTS... 

Our size charts are specific to our shoes, and may differ from your usual footwear so we always recommend you measure before ordering.

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

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 - Look at the "BEST FIT" column to see where the foot fits best.

* If closer to the end of the "BEST FIT" measurements then the next size up will be a better choice.

For most comfortable fit, aim to have up to 7-12mm of extra space in the shoe.  

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

We include a width measurement across the ball 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.
