So it wasn’t enough that little Miles (aka BatKid) had his Make-a-Wish dream come true with the help of thousands of screaming San Franciscan flashmobbers, the key to the City, and a special edition of the city’s paper. He also had insanely cool custom-made sneakers on his feet. Local startup footwear company Plae made them for Miles, with custom Ka! and Pow! details. Behind the Batman-themed exterior is footwear with kids’ health at its center. The shoes feature recycled PET (milk jug) uppers and environment-friendly leather, all manufactured in a solar-powered, fair-labor factory. Founder Ryan Ringholz previously worked for UGG and Puma, so he knows his way around a sneak. Lucky kid.
Prepare to Be Insanely Jealous of the BatKid’s Eco-Cool BatKicks
