Get Kids Shoes Right – What You Need To Know

Before you buy your kids the first shoes that fit, STOP, not all shoes are made equal!

So your kids need new shoes? Maybe they need their first pair? But where do you start and how do you know that you have found a pair that supports development? Here is how you can ensure you get the best combination of support and fashion.

choosing the right shoe

Choosing the right shoe

Naturally you want a shoe that looks stylish but not all shoes offer the functionality required for growing feet and instead focus more on what they look like. Before putting your child’s foot into a pair of shoes, consider these:

• Ensure you get the right shoe size. This is the most important thing you can do for your child’s feet. You can check this by getting a piece of paper and putting it flat on the floor, up against the wall. With their heel against the wall, draw around the toes and measure the longest part of each foot.

• Choose shoes that are right for your child’s development stage. Bobux are firm believers in ‘stage, not age’ because every child develops skills and reaches milestones at different times. Therefore what one 12 month old needs could be entirely different to another; one could be running while the other is only just learning to walk unaided. To learn more about what stage your little one is at, use this expert chart, it will tell you everything you need to know in an easy to understand image!

• From prewalker to pre-schooler – shoes should be 100% flexible, breathable and light. Their tiny feet start out so soft and pliable which is why it is crucial that we, as parents, ensure their feet can form as naturally as possible.

Once you have found the ‘right’ shoes for your little one, you can decide on the pattern and style.

Bobux – More than just fashionable shoes

Bobux are experts in shoes. They have worked hand in hand with podiatrists to ensure they are meeting the needs of growing feet and finding the perfect balance between offering protection and allowing kid’s feet to develop naturally.

choosing the right shoe

With the launch of their new range for Spring/Summer 2016, Bobux also released a ‘Form without function’ campaign. It was to highlight to parents that just because a shoe looks good or costs a lot, that doesn’t mean it is practical or functional. You can check it out by clicking the link.

This is where Bobux are different. Yes, they have designed their shoes to embrace how kids use their shoes, whether that is running, jumping, rolling or just learning to stand. BUT in addition to this they also take fashion very seriously and want your little ones to be the trendsetters of their generation.

choosing the right shoe

The new season of shoes is full of colour, flair and style! Think Mary Janes, ballet, boots, sandals, sports shoes and so many more. There are so many eye catching designs that also have clever little ways for kids to learn left and right. Haddie has a pair of Blaze Unicorn Fuchsia (because what little girl doesn’t want unicorn shoes) and the unicorns are on the inner foot, as if they are looking at each other, just like friends do. These particular shoes are durable, vibrant and easy for toddlers to put on themselves.

Orbs my 10 month old is just learning to walk, taking a few steps at time but still realising that crawling gets her wherever she wants to be a lot faster. I wanted shoes for her that were flexible and light enough that she barely noticed she was wearing any, the origin Xplorer shoes were perfect! The bright stitching and soles on the black shoes grabs your attention for all the right reasons. The colours are amazing, they are flexible and light yet remain durable.
There are four new colours in this style added to the new range; in addition to the existing – Black/Yellow, Black/Orange, Black/Pink, Black/White, Black/Blue, Black/Lime, Cobalt/Citrus, Silver/Pale Pink, Pink/Fuchsia, Navy/Red.

choosing the right shoe

Bobux are proof that just because something is good for you, doesn’t mean it has to be unattractive or bland. The options available give parents choice. If subtle is more your thing than there are plenty of gorgeous styles. If loud and proud is what you are after than you will not be disappointed in your selections. If sweet and delicate is ideal than sweet and delicate you can have.

choosing the right shoe

The new range offers something to suit every child, in every stage of development. Stand out from the crowd and know that while looking stylish, their feet are also being supported in development. It’s a WIN-WIN.

You can view the full range of Bobux shoes here or visit them on Facebook and Instagram.

    I have always loved Bobux shoes. They were the first brand I ever purchased. I love their new range too.

    Blaze Hi Shark would be perfectly comfy for the little man…..and he rocks anything Blue

  3. 05/09/2016 / 9:43 am

    They are the most awesome shoes for little people! I can see why they come highly recommended.

    Love the dream candy shoe in first walkers would look so cute on my little girl as we love all things pink!

  5. 05/09/2016 / 10:54 am

    Bubby shoes are so cute, I find them hard to part with once my daughter has outgrown them! (I may or may not have two or more pairs stashed away in her memory box). Love the look of the little sandals, perfect for summer!

  6. 05/09/2016 / 11:11 am

    Those shoes are so cute! Thanks for the chance to link up (and thanks for putting a reminder on FB! Otherwise I forget when all these link up are) xx

  7. 05/09/2016 / 12:31 pm

    I think that the Bobux shoes are super cute and let’s face it – buying shoes for children can be super expensive {especially when they tend to grow out of them so quickly}. What Mama wouldn’t want to win a year’s supply of these fantastic shoes?

  8. 05/09/2016 / 12:57 pm

    Trouble (Apple) would be perfect for my little man- he is always getting into trouble unintentionally! As I was writing this he managed to get a toy stuck in the sliding door rail and break a soccer ball. His favourite colour is green too!

  9. 05/09/2016 / 2:44 pm

    They’re really cute. I have three boys, so I always end up using hand me downs. They don’t need as many different shoes either, so it saves money. If I had girls I’d be too tempted all the time!

    I ❤ bobux! Love the Roamer sandals for my little guy in Navy… need a little coverage on the toes as he’s sprinting every where!!

  11. 05/09/2016 / 3:54 pm

    I love the Activ in pink/silver splash as mine needs some sneaker type shoes and she is usually always wearing pink or grey so they’d match every outfit.

  12. Samara McRae

    I love the Blaze Hi Shark. My little man would look so cute in them.

    Our one year old, is just starting to cruise,
    She needs flexibility in her shoes.
    The ‘Step Up’ range will meet her needs;
    Award winning Xplorers will help her succeed.
    First walkers in silver and pale pink
    Origin Xplorers- just perfect, we think!

  14. Fe Roza

    I like the Blaze Hi Finch Arcadia because it’s not in traditional girls colours and it’s trendy and unique. I like this a lot but I also like so many others.

  15. 05/09/2016 / 10:39 pm

    The shoes look so great. The skip gold would be perfect for heading into summer.

  16. 06/09/2016 / 3:52 am

    What cute little shoes! Thank you for hosting this link party <3

    I’m in love with BEAR RED. How adorable these would look on a newborn baby!

  18. 06/09/2016 / 8:41 pm

    I need a pair of the blaze unicorn fuchsia for my 3 year old. You have no idea how many thousands of treats a pair of shoes with unicorns on would mean to both of us!!!

  19. Sharon Johnson
    06/09/2016 / 10:02 pm

    The Racer sports shoe is my 3 year olds Bobux favourite! Casual shoes that are easy to throw on and mix for everyday wear! Sure will please Mr 3.

    I’ve just been to the Bobux facebook page and discovered something that has mesmerised me – Solid 24 Carat Rose Gold Bobux Shoes – What a dream! Not only do these babies look futuristic, they’re super cool. Check them out https://www.bobux.com.au/solid-24-carat-rose-glod-anti-shoe

    I read on to discover they’re a fake gold Bobux shoe they sell but still so amazing.

    One of the things I like best is that that podiatrists and physiotherapists are involved in the creation of every Bobux style. So I know they’re great support for little feet.

    My favourite for this summer would have to be the Jump Sandal in white. They’re cute, let the air flow through and have a caged toe so little ones don’t stub their toes. Love them!

    The Omega Blazing Yellow is would add a bang of style and colour to my daughters feet!

    SKIP PEONY, our little girl will love these & they’ll look nice with all her Summer dresses this season.

  23. Diana
    09/09/2016 / 3:29 pm

    Call me practical, because that’s what I am. Reef Caramel Sandals are my favourite, great neutral colour for maximum wear, and being unisex they can be passed down the line……..seeing as little tootsies out-grow before they wear-out shoes.

  24. Olivia

    Blaze Unicorn. Everyone wants a pet unicorn when young and with shoes one will always be with them

  25. Anthea Cornish
    09/09/2016 / 5:10 pm

    i like the pinky/red shoes with the unicorn on them, but all of your shoes are amazing and would delight any child.

    The cutest Bobux shoes are the ‘Bear Red’ design, they’re perfect for the first precious steps of my baby bear in the big wide world!

  27. Megan Walton

    So hard to choose…
    I love all the shoes!
    But the navy Rhyme
    They win every time

    My little one explores and gets into grime.
    Perfect for his travels, bush and sand,
    BOBUX SHOES, a range thats grand.
    For healthy feet , podiatrists agree.
    letting them be free to develop naturally.

  29. Amanda
    13/09/2016 / 3:39 pm

    The little one would have a field day in the Blaze Snow Wolf (blaze) made specifically for play when it provides extra support, while he’s still balancing to foot work!

  30. Stacey Shailer
    13/09/2016 / 10:45 pm

    I love the TWIST PEONY/NAVY/WHITE shoe, it’s nautical and yet girly all at the same time!

  31. Jeanie P
    17/09/2016 / 2:00 pm

    I love the Bobux Vogue Pink / Silver Splash! Not only are they pretty but they have unrestricted movement for babies who are close to taking off! Striking a Vogue pose is something that will be done by miss 9 months. So eat your heart out Madonna, there is a new girl with comfy shoes in town! She is just about to take her first steps and in these I know she will wiggle, wobble and love entertaining a cheering crowd!

    The Delight Red will have my niece walking in the right direction.

    I just bought my twins their first pair of shoes and got them the bobux dance silver Mary Jane’s which are stupidly adorable but made me so thankful that the girls have different sized feet and I’ll get double the wear out of one pair! The girls grow so fast, it’s insane.

    I also love the dream candy, the jump white and so many others. It’s very tempting to give them a shoe collection as big as mine ?

  34. Karina J
    19/09/2016 / 6:06 pm

    I love all of the shoes but my daughter would love the Twirl Silver shoes.

    20/09/2016 / 6:44 am

    I love all the different styles and colours you can choose from, all very stylish and they look comfortable , which i think is very important. These are my favourite…https://www.bobux.com.au/breeze?colour=white

    I grew up with boys and brothers I had 2 sons then suddenly I had a daughter who dances around and LOVES rainbows and unicorns… She would adore the Blaze Unicorn. The kids grandmother can hardly walk because her feet were not looked after when young so I like that these are podiatrist approved.

  37. Jessica F
    20/09/2016 / 8:29 am

    Love the vogue pink/sliver splash shoes for my baby girl. Like my daughter these shoes are fun and stylish with out being over the top!

  38. Becky Downey
    20/09/2016 / 10:48 am

    TRACKSIDE NAVY/RED/WHITE because of its great FEETures! They are a STEP in the right direction for all first walkers.

  39. Lorna M
    20/09/2016 / 1:27 pm

    The Mary Janes in Wish Navy is absolutely adorable. Pretty design that looks of quality workmanship and most importantly comfy for little feet.

  40. julie

  42. Stephanie
    21/09/2016 / 8:11 am

    It is so hard to find leather sandals for boys. The unisex reef sandals in caramel (yum!) is my pick of the bunch!

  43. Maree Wood
    21/09/2016 / 9:45 am

    Hard to pick a Favorite.. They all look comfy 🙂

  44. Toni C

  48. Ashleigh Gribben
    25/09/2016 / 9:05 pm

    Aaahhhh the little Fox Milk ones are my fave from the pre walkers range – they remind me of my sons first shoes (Bobux obvs??) that have raccoons on them! ?

  49. Cathy
    26/09/2016 / 12:55 pm

    The Roamer navy sandals are perfect for us,
    Being my son’s favourite colour he’d wear them-no fuss.
    Easy for him to take off and put back on again,
    Fitting an innersole they get 10 out of 10!
    With a broken leg last year we need the extra support,
    These Bobux sandals don’t leave us short.
    I love that they have a closed over toe,
    Protecting from stumbles when on the go.
