Arena - nSustainable children's shoes made of organic cotton in a T-bar sandal cut
Our sweet "Arena" combines comfort, sustainability and style. Made from 100% certified organic cotton, this shoe offers an eco-friendly and skin-friendly alternative for little feet.
Characteristics:
  • Material: Made of soft and breathable organic cotton that is gentle on children's sensitive skin while protecting the environment.
  • Design: The classic T-bar sandal cut not only ensures a secure hold, but also gives the shoe a charming retro look that goes perfectly with any outfit.
  • Sole: The flexible minimal sole allows maximum freedom of movement and supports the natural development of the feet. At the same time, it offers excellent grip and stability on various surfaces.
  • Magnetic Fastener: A practical Velcro fastener makes it easier to put on and take off and allows for individual adjustment to the child's foot.
  • Comfort: Thanks to the soft, removable insole and breathable materials, the shoe stays comfortable all day long.
  • Vegan: No animal components were used during processing.
Why organic cotton?
Organic cotton is a wonderful material. It refreshes, is particularly skin-friendly and very pleasant on the skin. We at POLOLO like to use cotton (organic / organic) as an alternative to leather for our sneakers. Cotton is also particularly elastic and light on the foot. It is very breathable and also has good absorbency - making it ideal for children's feet, especially in the summer months. It is important to us that the cotton comes from organic farming. With organic cotton, monocultures are avoided and synthetic pesticides and fertilizers are deliberately avoided during cultivation - alternatively, plant-based products and humus are used. In organic farming, around 30 percent of the crop is rain-fed in order to avoid additional irrigation (optimal water consumption). The undamaged soil stores much more water. With certified organic cotton, only particularly health-friendly colors are used. High social standards are maintained and fair wages are paid. All of this is good for the environment, local people and the health of our children.
No plastic packaging at POLOLO
At POLOLO we largely avoid outer packaging and do not use plastic in our packaging. These models only come in a paper shoe box. Please dispose of it in the trash or, better yet, store the shoes in it if they no longer fit. Because POLOLOs can be passed on or sold on.

Fit of children's shoes

The human foot takes approximately 18 years to fully develop. Of course, it grows fastest in the beginning. Therefore, you parents should check the fit of your children's shoes every 3-4 months. For POLOLO street shoes, we have always developed removable soles - as far as this was possible for the respective style. On the one hand, you can easily replace a sole (e.g. add a wool sole for the winter) and you can use it to measure the foot length and fit very well. If the imprint of the big toe is already dangerously far forward, then your child has already grown again and is due for the next shoe size. Our soles are all very flexible, especially our Barefoot collection.

POLOLO pursues the highest ecological standards

When producing our POLOLOs in Spain, we pay great attention to ecological, pollutant-free materials and workmanship throughout the entire production chain. We only use German natural leather that is vegetable tanned and certified, organic quality cotton (organic / kbA) and wool from controlled organic animal husbandry (organic / kbT). POLOLOs are allergy-friendly and therefore our leathers are naturally chrome-free.
