SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Coming off the success of its fifth collection, innovative kids shoe brand PLAE is expanding its line even further with new styles and colors for spring 2016. PLAE's newest introductions are Chloe, a whimsical take on the Mary Jane constructed of perforated neoprene, and Charlie, the brand's first turf shoe. Charlie features raised and strategically positioned lugs for excellent traction and grip both on and off the field. It's available in antique white or steel waterproof full grain Napa leather, which any parent can tell you is next to impossible to find anywhere else. Existing silhouettes including Sam, Emme, Ty, Lou, Nat, Max and Noel (all named for children of PLAE employees) are available in punchy new colors ranging from dusty turquoise to festival fuchsia.

"At PLAE, we view the world as kids do – with visceral observations, natural wonder and genuine awe," said Ryan Ringholz, PLAE founder and Chief Designer. "This spring collection draws inspiration from the intense saturation of colors that emerge when the season turns – blue skies, green trees and vivid blooms with bioluminescent pops – all derived from nature." 

As part of its spring offering, PLAE is also re-releasing its popular ribbon red perforated full grain Napa leather hi-top. This limited-edition style sold out last year and was re-introduced on February 4 as an Instagram exclusive, shoppable via a special landing page. The shoe also has an expanded size range and is available in whole and half sizes from 8 to 4.5.

The rest of the spring collection will roll out through May at, Nordstrom (all stores and as well as boutiques nationwide.
