BIRO

Size Guide

The bell has rung and it's time to expel old school shcool shoes! Out with the chunky, heavy and oppressive old and in with the light, flexible and fun new school kicks by PaperKrane.

These Biro Lace-up style shoes with their buttery soft black leather uppers, elastic laces and rubber soles, are so effortless to wear due to their slip on style (laces can simply be pulled tight or loosened, so no need to tie laces!), and will have your little students feeling comfortable all day!

It's time to put other school shoes in detention and to give these PaperKrane school kicks a go because they are top of the class when it comes to foot health and comfort!

AS OUR SHOES ARE A GENEROUS FIT, (as always) WE RECOMMEND MEASURING YOUR CHILD'S FEET BEFORE SELECTING THE SIZE YOU NEED. (Use the size chart link below.)  

Please be advised, wearing shoes too large is not great for little feet, so do not size up too much. 

LACE UP STYLE PK | CONSTRUCTION

  • FLEXI - Natural rubber sole that packs a punch in the flex department 
  • Lovely pebbled black napa leather uppers, with pig skin/microsuede lining. 
  • Stretchy elastic laces for easy slip on. 
  • As with any new shoe we recommend you continue to wear socks with them while they are being worn in. The leather and shoe will soften over time, but it's not unusual for brand new pairs to feel a little tight or stiff to start with. Especially if your child is used to our fabric pairs.

SHOE CARE | CLEANING

  • To make cleaning your PKs easier we suggest treating with a waterproof stain protector first, for school a leather conditioner that also contains a polish is best. As that will allow you to regularly touch up any scuffs that occur on the playground. 
  • FLEXI SOLES - Spot clean or wet wipe - Do not machine wash. 
  • Do not leave to soak in water to avoid any damage to the leather.
  • Brush or wipe the soles to clean. 

 

Colours may vary from screen to screen. As with any item made from leather, natural markings and creases may be found in the outer material, and wear and tear from regular use will be part of the normal life of this item, every line, scuff, or mark tells the story of an adventure your little one has been on. 


PAPERKRANE SIZE CHARTS

Not sure what size PaperKrane shoe you or your child needs??

We suggest you choose the same size as your existing shoes - you can find these on one of the four size charts below. 

But to be safe, please measure both feet while standing with your heels against the wall, marking where the longest toe/s are on paper or a ruler. If the shoes will be worn with socks, please wear the socks and then measure in the same manner. {HOW TO MEASURE HERE}

Leave at least 1cm or a thumb width of space between the longest toe and the inside lengths below. If you’re in-between sizes, we recommend you size up.

Across our soles and sizes the fit is the same, unless we state otherwise.
