Simple, stylish & sustainable.
PAIZO simply means PLAY in Greek and when it comes to kids, something as simple as play is everything! Stepping into a pair of sustainable and stylish shoes is sure to set our little adventurers off on the right track.
PAIZO has crafted lightweight and breathable styles for your little explorers to embrace and enjoy garden play, holiday fun and sunny beach days.
All our creations are vegan, sustainable and unisex. They are designed in the UK and handcrafted in small quantities at a family-run factory in Greece.
The PAIZO story.
Here at PAIZO, our story is simple. Since having children, Felesha, the founder of PAIZO, found it incredibly hard to find truly sustainable kids' shoes. So, she set herself the exciting challenge of creating beautiful products that are good for the planet and great for little feet.
With a background in sustainable fashion, Felesha grew PAIZO naturally as the children’s brand to Collection & Co, her sustainable, vegan and ethical adult footwear brand.
Our materials are good for the planet and great for little feet.
The faux leather we use is vegan and made from recycled PET plastic, which feels kind on active little feet. This sustainable leather-looking material is perfect due to its lightweight, flexible and breathable properties.
The inner lining is crafted with sustainable organic cotton, making them airy, comfortable and good for the planet.
Kids grow fast, and with fast-growing kids come fast-growing feet. That’s why we’ve carefully chosen materials that support children's constantly growing and developing feet.
Unisex shoes to be handed down and down.
Kids' shoes simply don’t last long, suddenly they just don’t fit anymore and sadly most end up in landfill. PAIZO shoes are made to last! If shown a bit of love and care, one single pair can bring summertime joy to kids, year after year.
Vegan because…why wouldn’t they be?
If our kids can play in comfortable, stylish and sustainable shoes that are also vegan, why wouldn't they be! Each design is made with 100% vegan materials and approved by PETA. Our commitment is to keep moving forward on the kindest and most sustainable journey possible.
Easy on and easy off.
Until you’ve tried to wriggle and jiggle a little foot into a little shoe you won’t understand! PAIZO shoes are designed to be easy on and off, with no fuss!
Who needs another boring shoebox?
Our planet doesn’t! So we thought outside the box and came up with a much more eco-friendly and cuter solution. All little shoe deliveries will be sent in a reusable handcrafted cotton tote bag. Everyone loves a new little tote! They can be taken with you on sunny beach days or playtime fun, filled with your little adventurer's favourite toys and snacks. We are proud to say that our packaging is 100% plastic free and zero waste.
When choosing materials we buckle up and stay safe.
Each pair is made with maximum grip on slippery surfaces, secure soles and quick-drying materials to keep playtime fun and safe.
Our shoes are held to the highest safety standards.
They are tested by Intertek, an industry leader for testing the quality and safety of products. With this approval, both us and our customers can feel at ease with the safety of our products.
Caring for your shoes - a little love goes a long way.
Our shoes are made for walking and that’s what we encourage your little adventures to do. However, if you’re looking for the longest possible life from your shoes you’ll need to show them some love. Crafted with high quality materials, but they aren’t invincible. After some time, natural-looking scuffs and marks may appear, as they do with regular leather. So a little bit of care is needed.
There are different ways to clean and maintain different styles of shoes. Some protective sprays or polishes that are used on real leather can be used on our shoes too. Shoes made of canvas and organic cotton can be kept looking fresh and clean by hand washing them.
