Paar doesn't need to be capitalised?
Edit: Found Sakasiru's response on a different thread helpful.
ein Paar (written capitalized and therefore a noun) means a pair in the sense of exactly two, belonging together:
ein Paar Schuhe = a matching pair of shoes, one left and one right.
ein paar (written uncapitalized, and considered an indefinite pronoun) means a couple in the sense of some, a small, undefined number:
ein paar Schuhe = a couple (a small number) of single shoes, maybe strewn about in a chaotic heap
