Editors' note

Discover PaperKrane, an Australian online footwear retailer with a passion for foot health, fashion, and sustainability. Their barefoot/minimal style shoes boast the ‘Four F’s’: Flat, Feather Light, Foot Shaped, and Flexible. These qualities improve overall function, posture, natural gait, and foot strength, while offering stylish and fun designs for all ages.

Initially focused on children’s footwear, PaperKrane has since expanded its range to include women’s shoes, with a men’s line expected in the future. Their unique and fashion-forward offerings range from casual velcro shoes to chelsea boots, mary janes, and school shoes.

Founded by two Melbourne-based moms, PaperKrane works closely with a Vietnam-based factory that respects traditional handmade shoe techniques and maintains a fair, happy workplace. The company visits the factory several times a year, ensuring a close relationship and minimal waste in the production process.

PaperKrane also has a strong commitment to social causes, collaborating with artists and celebrities for their “Soles with Soul” styles. These limited edition shoes raise awareness and funds for important charities worldwide. So far, they’ve donated to the ONJ (Olivia Newton John) foundation, Pretty Foundation, Minus18 youth, and Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, with more partnerships planned for the future.

Check out our complete and reliable guide on all your barefoot shoes & minimalist footwear options in Australia.
