New Zealand brand Bobux is the go-to brand for developing feet.
At Bobux HQ in New Zealand, they spend a lot of time thinking about what makes healthy feet. Since their inception in 1991 they've strived to promote natural foot development for active children. Over the years they’ve brought in foot experts and podiatrists to be part of the company and they've put a lot of effort into studying how children move as they grow. Besides protection, little feet need room to move, grip, grow and develop naturally. Bobux offers all this through good designs with a fun Kiwi-wibe.
Bobux offers several developmental stage-based ranges: 'Soft Sole' baby shoes for indoor use, 'Explorers' for active crawlers and early walkers, 'Step Up' for first walkers and 'I-walk' for confident walkers. All Bobux shoes are made from eco-friendly and high quality, breathable leather with a natural, non-slip rubber or suede sole.
