We have designed a shoe which allows new walkers, active toddlers and early school children’s feet to grow and develop naturally, whilst still receiving support in all the right places!
Every part of our shoe has been considered when it comes to supporting and maintaining comfort for little feet. Literally from the ground up!
The sole of the shoe allows for extreme flexibility in the ball of the foot, offers shock absorbing traction in the ball of the foot and is made of non-slip genuine rubber, to allow your child’s feet to grip easily and avoid too many falls!
Every pair of Piccolini Shoes has a removable insole. This insole has been designed to help support the child’s foot, but does not force to mould the foot. The front section of the shoe is designed to be slightly wider, so their little toes can wriggle around and not be restricted. The insole can be easily replaced by a personalised orthotic if needed. Please get in touch for further assistance, we would love to help you out!
Finally, the upper! After many designs and sampling, our first design to go into production is our ‘Original High Top’. The three velcro straps allow for easy adjustability. One strap around the ankle offers more support where needed.
One of the most important things for us is to design a shoe that will not cause more harm to our environment, or even to ourselves.
After researching for many many months, sourcing a material that is not dyed or grown using harmful, toxic chemicals, we finally partnered with a supplier who produces Organic Cotton.
We take pride in knowing that the materials used to make our unique sneakers are the best quality.
Every pair of shoes that walk out of Piccolini, are made with Certified Organic cotton, both the upper and the lining.
The soles of the shoes are made out of genuine rubber and are designed to endure many kicks and knocks.
They grip to all surfaces and are designed with the ability to bend and flex in all the right places.
A lot of time was spent sourcing a durable velcro. This means no more fluff getting caught in your shoes!
Our Piccolini kids shoes have been tested to be machine washable. See below instructions best to follow;
-Remove insoles from the shoes before placing in laundry bag and into the washing machine.
-Machine washing has been tested on the shoes to 30’C
-Use “footwear” setting if possible and set to low spin cycle
-Wash separately to avoid possible colour bleed to other clothes
-Dry the shoes naturally, out of direct sunlight.
