GILLIE & MARC "ANIMAL" - SHOES THAT SAVE!

March 04, 2022

GILLIE & MARC

Time to have a peek at who we are also collaborating with for our next special pair of PKs under our SOLES WITH SOUL initiative… 

Now in our previous blog post we introduced you to Gillie and Marc, the world renowned artist duo who have also created this brilliantly bold Aussie inspired print, based on their artwork, "Lewis, and a few of our favourite things." (More on Lewis the koala here)

G&M ANIMAL LOVE SHOES

For this pair, named “G&M ANIMAL LOVE” [Find them HERE], we are also teaming up with Molly’s Wildlife Warriors!

This talented group of passionate wildlife lovers started up after Molly @mollywrightofficial (with her mum @_ally_wright), took part in an educational, emotional and very magical trip to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Open Day. 

Molly is an 8 year old actor, who has been fortunate enough to spend time around humanitarians and animal activists. 

Inspired by what she has seen and heard, and the people around her, when Molly was 7, she set up a team of 40 wonderful children, who have spent the past year taking on challenges to raise money for Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.

Now if you’re not familiar with Currumbin Wildlife Hospital please read on… they are one of the World’s busiest wildlife hospitals and they run ENTIRELY on charitable donations.

The goal of the Hospital is to treat, rehabilitate and release sick, injured or orphaned native wildlife.

In 2020 alone, the Hospital treated nearly 14,000 animals, including 600 koalas, and the Hospital has treated in excess of 140,000 animals in the past 20 years.

They treat every animal that is brought to them, for free, and with these extreme weather events becoming more frequent, they are in need of as much support as we can all give them. Relying solely on donations isn't easy, but the work is too important not to do.

We can help raise awareness for Currumbin through our shoe collaboration, and raise some funds, too. And aligning with groups like Molly's Wildlife Warriors, who raised $23K in 2021 for Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, we can reach even more people!!

With this amazing arty Aussie inspired print by Gillie and Marc, we put together a PK style shoe of epic proportions, and along with Molly and her wildlife warriors we hope to bring awareness to the plight of animals in Australia, especially the now endangered Koala. 🐨😢 

Through our Soles with Soul initiative we hope to help amazing wildlife rescue centres like Currumbin Wildlife Hospital 🏥 continue to do the critical work they do every day. ❤️ So wear these special PKs with pride, knowing you're helping wildlife at the same time!

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 - 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.
