Delivery & Returns

postage information

in the uk delivery takes 1-3 working days. we use a courier (door to door) service and do not offer regular mail. there must be someone at the address in normal working hours to receive the delivery. sometimes a work address is a better option for this reason. we will deliver the package to the address but not person to person, so please guarantee a trusted person will be there to receive the package.

tracking your order

sign into your account and look under current orders where you will be able to view all open orders and their details. if you haven't created an account with us, please refer to your dispatch email and the tracking code.

holiday deliveries

please note during national holiday periods (easter / christmas / bank holidays) delivery and dispatch will be slower. our warehouse and all courier services also deserve a break with their families and often we rely on a skeleton staff of eager beavers. the cost for sending out our dispatches is based on using trackable services not on providing next day although that is most often the case.


what makes plae shoes good for kids' feet?

plae shoes are built with kids biomechanics in mind. they're designed with rounded edges and flexible soles for smoother and more balanced movement. they have reflexive traction which grips on loose earth without compromising contact on hard surfaces. our shoes are durable and comfortable, while featuring removable contoured insoles as well as breathable and washable materials made especially for children.
