Zig + Star is run by and created by the mega talented Ali. Ali's story of why she created Zig + Star resonated with us here at Acorn & Pip. Here's why she created her awesome shoe brand...'As a mum of two girls and a boy, I felt frustrated at how the kids wear market directed me to buy one type of product for my daughters and another for my son. An avalanche of pink unicorns on one side of the shop and an army of dinosaurs on the other. Shoes were no better: boys’ shoes were built for adventure, but where was the colour or the fun? Whilst girls’ shoes were sparkly or impractical...This pigeon-holing gives our kids the message that there are limits and restrictions to how they should dress, what their interest should be and ultimately, who they should be.

After 20 years working in fashion and footwear, I decided to tackle this head-on. To create the shoes I wanted to buy for my own children. Unisex styles in cool colours, that not only looked great but were good for their feet and for the planet. Designed in collaboration with a Paediatric Podiatrist, the styles are designed to adjust to each child and grow as they grow.

Who says you can’t have style and substance? IT’S TIME TO CHALLENGE COMPROMISE, STEREOTYPES AND OUTDATED BELIEFS. Unisex styles that don’t pigeonhole little people. Shoes that look good and are good for their feet. Planet conscious shoes designed to last and grow as they grow. Unisex designs that will adjust and last longer.
