Bobux Xplorer Shoe Review

bobuxHere at Baby-A we were kindly sent some beautiful shoes from Bobux New Zealand to review. Bobux a New Zealand company…

Bobux began with Chris and Colleen’s quest in 1991 to find a soft flexible shoe that would stay on the feet of their 9 month old daughter, Chloe. At the time, the only offering was hard-soled shoes, that Chloe would not wear.The first Bobux shoe was created using soft leather and suede and included elastic around the ankle to ensure the shoe actually stayed on and allowed Chloe’s feet to develop naturally. That was it – the first Bobux Soft Sole was born!”
The shoes come from their new Xplorer range designed for first walkers.  On opening we found the shoes to be lovely and soft with a funky, bright design. There are 9 colours and 3 styles in the Xplorer shoe range. We opted for the lime green as we like the striking colour. The shoes were different to any other cruiser type shoe we had seen before and had the added benefit of being soft enough for inside but durable enough for outdoor use.

Xplorer shoes from Bobux Ronnie was very excited on opening the shoes and we found that the elasticated heel and small velcro strap proved to be very useful in actually putting the shoe on with ease. It’s always a bit of a mission to put shoes on a wriggling toddler’s feet but these were great!! Made with 100% leather with a flexible sole and no seams to rub on the foot. All of these elements added up to an amazing first shoe. The shoes were a perfect fit as we had used the Bobux Fit Wizard on their website. They were certainly a hit with Ronnie, so much so he was hard to catch. He instantly started running in them as they seemed to add an air of confidence to his newly found skill of walking. ronshoe Thank you Bobux for giving us the pleasure of testing these simple yet ingenious designed shoes, it is nice now to have a broader choice of shoes to choose from for our every growing toddler boy!! We would definitely recommend the Bobux Xplorer shoes.
