Testing out Bobux Blaze Shoes from the new Kid+ Range

LP and Little Man, unlike other children, have feet that don’t grow very quickly. At nearly four and nearly six they have very similar sized little feet but their problem is that shoes wear out before they are too small, meaning that I am forever buying shoes and often going for value over design. So when Bobux sent the children new shoes, ones that they chose themselves, it was immediately obvious that they would love them so much.

The new Kid+ range of shoes from Bobux fit children up to the age of eight, extending their previous range by a good few sizes and meaning that we can enjoy the comfort and style of Bobux for a little bit longer.

Blog Birthday – Bobux Shoes Giveaway! (Competition now closed)

Earlier this year LP was sent some gorgeous Bobux boots to review and since then we have been huge fans of the brand – It was lovely to find shoes for girls that weren’t just pink or purple and designs that weren’t overly girly and covered in hearts and flowers. Finding an alternative to the big names on the High Street is always hard but with Bobux we have found somewhere we will definitely be buying shoes from in the future.

Review: Bobux Children’s Shoes

I’ve always had it drummed into me that it’s important to get children’s feet measured regularly and always make sure they have well fitting, well made shoes. Decent shoes are the one thing that I will always pay money for and would never buy cheap shoes for my children to wear regularly but with this in mind I found it hard to find places to buy quality shoes for LP without resorting to the usual shop on the High Street.

Bobux recently gave LP the opportunity to review a pair of their shoes and it coincided nicely with us having just got her feet measured. Given the awful British weather at the moment and it still being raining and cold more than sunny we opted for a pair of boots for her rather than shoes.

Bobux Children's Shoes

Bobux are originally from New Zealand but they now sell their innovative range of baby and toddler shoes all over the world. Every pair of shoes maintains the healthy feet ethos that was established over 20 years ago. I originally thought they were purely an online retailer but I’ve since found out that their shoes are actually stocked in many independent shoe shops across the country – One being in my local town and another three stores within a short driving distance.

LP’s new Urban Beat Boots arrived and she couldn’t wait to try them on – “New shoes Mummy!”. I managed to keep LP away from the boots just long enough to take a picture and then she insisted on wearing them around the house!

I was pleased that the boots had not only a velcro fastening but also a zip meaning that they were easy to get onto LP’s feet and also stayed securely in place. The soles of the boots are made of flexible rubber allowing LP’s feet to grow whilst wearing them and Bobux offer a lot of information online to make sure that any shoes you buy are the correct size – I also love that if the shoes don’t fit correctly or you change your mind all returns are free of charge.

Bobux have a great range of shoes – Soft newborn shoes, soft sole shoes for developing feet, pre walkers and shoes for confident walkers. When looking for somewhere new to buy shoes for LP I’m pleased to have found Bobux. Their shoes are different with a vast array of colours and styles – It makes a great improvement on the just pink and purple shoe choices we’ve had for LP over the last year – Being able to choose ‘girls’ shoes that are green, brown or blue is such a novelty and something I could definitely get used to!

LP has loved wearing her Bobux boots and we’ve loved having them – They are well made, fit her comfortably and a nice pair of boots are a staple for any wardrobe – Even if you are only two and a half! LP’s feet seem to be growing incredibly quickly for someone so petite and I will definitely be shoe shopping with Bobus in the future!

Bobux shoes vary in price depending on style however the boots we chose have an RRP of £42.00
