Construction & testing.
All of our washable shoes for kids are rigorously tested to ensure that the constructions and materials can safely go through the wash and be ready to tackle another day’s chaos, again and again.

We also control for color fading and material shrinkage, so your child always feels stylish and comfortable – even when they’re getting dirty.
Our M2P collection includes different types of washable shoes to accommodate a range of activities. Each category has a unique construction process to ensure your child stays happy, supported and safe while they play, all while offering you peace of mind that their shoes can get cleaned up again in no time.
