3 shoe experts, at the time in Portland, USA, with decades of experience in the footwear industry, asked themselves if they could create truly revolutionary shoes for Indian children. The answer turned out to be Plaeto — India’s first shoe designed exclusively for growing Indian feet.
There’s no shoe like Plaeto.
Scientifically designed for young feet that are constantly growing.
Asymmetrical Lacing: For everyday twists and turns.
Off-centre lacing allows the shoe to bend at the natural flex point of the foot, the metatarsal joint, and avoids any restrictive pressure from the lace.
Plaeto FitSystem: Feet growing? The shoe grows too.
Removable Fitliner, under the insole, can be peeled off to expand the shoe by up to ½ a size.
Wider Toe Box: Because Indian feet need wider shoes.
Wider toe box provides support and freedom to growing muscles, ligaments and bones.
Plaeto 365: Day 1 comfort on Day 365.
Proprietary midsole cushioning that is durable and tough but responsive and supportive of feet well into a year of usage.
High Toe Bumper: Takes the ouch out of play.
Bumps and knocks are part of a normal day for busy young feet. A reinforced bumper keeps feet, in particular toes, protected from mischief and mishaps.
Made from just 7 materials, a size-7 Plaeto weighs around 300 gms. It’s lighter than a regular kid’s shoe, kind to the earth but still stubbornly protective of growing feet.
Sustainability is our Lifeforce.
One of our sustainability goals is zero-waste manufacturing units and repurposing waste at each step. While we’re stubbornly and surely headed that way, Plaeto shoes already have an incredibly low carbon footprint of 6.5kg CO2/pair*, which is 50% less than most athletic footwear.

Soft Bags For Sturdy Shoes.
Plaeto shoes are delivered in a beautiful and reusable cloth bag made from cotton textiles by Fairkraft Creations, a fair trade company working with women artisans in Karnataka. A sustainable purchase that doesn’t add packaging waste and also contributes to the earning of these awesome ladies!
Made for India, Made in India.
World-class Plaeto shoes are made with materials suited to Indian conditions and Indian feet (that tend to be broader). Additionally, most of the materials are sourced and manufactured in India. That keeps Plaeto light on feet, easy on your wallet and good to the environment as well.
