Review: Bobux New Step-Up Range

The lovely people from Bobux have kindly given Logan another pair of their fantastic shoes to test out and review for them. He received a pair of their i-walk Get Smart Dress shoes in black and like the last pair of shoes Bobux sent us they don't disappoint.

Now we all know how important our little ones feet are and from birth to five years, little feet undergo a massive amount of change. It doesn't matter if your child's crawling, toddling or walking, they all need footwear that can support healthy natural development.

Bobux is a leading New Zealand innovator in children's footwear and are committed to creating eco-friendly footwear that mimics the healthy benefits of bare feet. They draw on both science and working with globally renowned specialists and natural health researchers to create three ranges that allow unrestricted development as babies and toddlers grow.

Their three ranges; Soft Soles, Step Up and i-walk are based around the philosophy that children do better when they're comfortable, happy and free to develop as nature intended. Each shoe is designed to support key stages of a child's development from crawling to walking.

Soft Sole (for indoor wear): The original Bobux shoe, these are soft, breathable and flexible shoes for babies and toddlers. Made with eco-leather and non-toxic stitching and dyes. With a unique elastic ankle support, these Bobux originals works with little feet as they grip the floor, flex muscles and spread toes, assisting in crawling and making those first steps as easy as possible. Soft Soles offer superior indoor protection, comfort and warmth.

Step Up (for first steps): The new step up range accommodates the shape and stability needed during the vital months when little ones move from crawling to cruising. They are designed on shoe forms that reflect the distinctive anatomy of a first walker's foot. This accommodates the child's rounder foot shape and allows unrestricted growth at this key stage of development.

i-walk (for active toddlers): The enhanced i-walk range strikes the ideal balance between the benefits of barefoot freedom and outdoors protection. They are a soft, flexible rubber-sole shoe with extra grip that conforms to the natural walking motion of little feet allowing them to grow and explore without restriction, avoiding malformation and spinal issues later in life.

i-walk Get Smart Dress Shoes

My personal experience of the Bobux brand has been refreshing, their children's shoes are fantastic and so hard wearing especially with a toddler who thinks he's Spiderman! The shoes are very flexible too but give great support and my son has never complained when wearing them unlike some other brands of shoes. The i-walk Get Smart Dress shoes Logan received are gorgeous. Perfect for smart casual days out or party events like weddings. They go with anything really and although they have bright green laces they also come with a set of black ones which can be swapped over saving any clashing colours or gasps of shock from the relatives!

The Spring/Summer collection will cater for newborns up to size 28 which is a size 10 in the UK. Logan is currently in a size 6.5 and the 24 European size from Bobux and this fits him well. The shoes we received are priced at £34.95 which is expensive but they're such great shoes and so much better for his feet than other brands, and they come in sizes 20 to 28.

Overall excellent shoes, more styles have been added this summer and the new Step Up range for younger children looks great. Pricing is on the more expensive side but then again a lot of good children's footwear retails in that region and these Bobux shoes are well worth the purchase. My son loves his and that's the main thing.

Mummies rating - 10/10
Logan's rating - 10/10
