Bobux Shoes for Big Kids

A few weeks ago Emma and I were invited to attend the launch of Bobux’s newest range of shoes for big kids, Bobux KID+. They are designed for active children, and we got to test them out first hand at Clip’n’Climb in Richmond, a super fun indoor climbing center.

I’ve always appreciated the quality of Bobux footwear, but until now Emma’s large feet meant that she sized out of them as a toddler. That’s why I was super pleased to hear the new KID+ range caters to a more mature foot shape in sizes from 27-33, to suit 5-8 year olds.

Emma is at an age where I am struggling to find clothes and footwear that fit well, are well made, age appropriate and stylish. All the robust kid’s clothes seems to stop at about age 6, and I don’t even want to get into how I feel about ‘tween’ styles for girls. Until now I’ve also struggled to find good shoes for her super large feet too.

It’s refreshing to see well made kids’ shoes in such a large range of styles and colours, and I’m loving that a lot of the designs are non-gender specific, yay to an alternative to pink butterflies on everything! The KID+ range includes high performance Play shoes, some awesome street style trainers and refined leather classics (which come in metallic leathers, so cool!)

The only downside is that Emma is already in a size 33, but at least she’ll get to wear her Bobux this winter. After that I don’t know what to do, it’ll be just school shoes and runners till she fits into ladies sizes. Maybe I’ll petition Bobux to push up the size range again!

    Running, jumping, climbing trees, skipping, chasey, its such fun being a kid – Bobux are perfect companions when doing all of these activities!

    I love they’re podiatrist endorsed which means I’m making a good shoe choice.

    Our favourites have lots of stripes and faces on each side. In no time at all little miss will learn which shoe is for the left and which is for the right. We think zebras are pretty amazing beasts!

    It’s the Blaze Plus Lo Zebra’s in size 6 which gets out favourite Bobux pick! Made for going on safari everyday and exploring the world in comfort – Yay!

    Like you, we had grown past the original size range for Bobux, so I’m *thrilled* that they are making bigger sizes. (*insert happy dance *).

    My vote for my Miss-5 would be the Sway boots, so stylish but super practical all at once. I’d choose Toffee, but I think she’d choose Bordeaux! (Or, her little inner bowerbird might prove me wrong, and go for a fabulously shiny Vault in gold or silver.)

    We have loved the amazing quality of Bobux shoes in the past, amazing news that they’re an option for us again. (And we might just join your petition to keep upsizing, do you think they’d make them in my size – matching mummy & me boots would be sah amahzing. 😉)

  • Claire says:

    I am so happy to see the new kids + range. Its so hard to find cute shoes that are appropriately designed for growing feet and also accommodate some serious play. How can you choose only 1 pair of of shoes you like the best? They are all not only practical but also super cute! I can see my girl jumping in puddles in a pair of sway boots on a rainy day….wearing a pair of gold swirl shoes as she dresses up in her fairy outfit and makes the cat have a tea party with her…or in a pair of vault boots running around the backyard dressed as a super hero…i can see her dancing around the living room in a pair of red charm shoes on a blue Monday, because lets face it red shoes make everything seem better. Thanks for this amazing opportunity! x

  • Gabey M says:

    Hooray, what a giveaway! And so happy to hear they are doing bigger sizes. Perfect timing for much needed winter boots. I would choose the Ranch in navy for my daughter. The most important reasons I choose bobux are their flexible soles with zero (or near zero) drop, and big toe box. But what a joy that we get to see our children wearing them, too – beautifully designed and perfect colours.

  • Augusta Zeeng says:

    I was sad when I realised we no longer fit into Bobux, but then I was happy to see they now had the kid+ range, and then I was sad that the shop I saw them in didn’t have the full range in our size, and then I was happy again when I found this competition!

  • Rebbecca says:

    Oh the Sway Toffee! They are to die for and I’d love to have them for my baby (who isn’t a baby anymore!!) – they’re stylish, fun, so versatile and most of all, I know they’re well made and good for my little one’s feet. Win, win, win! Thanks Cinti for the opportunity to enter.

  • Rachael L says:

    Totes Ranch Red all the way

  • Karina Lee says:

    Sway Bordeaux would be perfect for my little girl!

  • katie poli says:

    Vault molten gold for my gal, and class charcoal and black for my boys… I could wax lyrical about the fabulous features of Bobux shoes, but let’s be honest, I’m one of those suckers who seems to relish in her kids looking a whole lot more stylish that she does 😀

  • ben travia says:

    Rascal Apple. Not only cool, but has the added bonus of describing the potential wearer of the shoes.

  • Sally says:

    Blaze – either Zebra or Flamingo seem to catch my daughters eye! Love that they are now in bigger sizes!!

  • I love the Vault Molten Gold – a classic style in a colour that goes with everything. I know my four year old daughter would be ALL OVER the Blaze Plus Unicorn Fuschia.

  • Katrina says:

    Step into a pair of Bobux Shoes,
    With so many options, so many to choose.
    For work or play, hip hip hooray!
    The ranch toffee would be my choice today.
    Answer me this, oh Bobux, you’ve nothing to lose:
    WHY OH WHY don’t you make adult shoes???

  • Mel says:

    We’re excited that bigger Bobux sizes are now available. As lovers of Dorothy’s ruby red shoes in the Wizard of Oz, I can see my girls having a magical time clicking their heels together wearing Bobux Ranch Red Boots!

  • Nicole Kent says:

    The Sway Bordeaux’s it is for me
    Stylish and modern for little miss 3
    The Perfect boot for winter days
    For dressing up or inside play!

  • Joanne Chen says:

    The Blaze Hi Dragons in Black.
    A very cool way to encourage exercise: By turning them into fire breathing dragons!

  • Maria says:

    Super excited to see the Bobux range in the larger sizing! I think this winter will be my daughter’s last change though as she’s a size 32/33 already. Would love love to win a pair of the Valut Silver or Sway Bordeaux… but I’d let her decide which pair she liked best of course x

  • Karina Lee says:

    Ranch Army looks super cool for my little girl!

  • Ranch red boots would be my choice to suit her personality.

  • Liz says:

    Wow, thanks for the giveaway (and introducing a new range of kids shoes!).

    I would definitely get Nomads for my girls – perfect for outdoor exploring, even on the coldest of days.

  • Ryan H says:

    Charm Fuschia would be perfect for my little girl with all her girly dresses.

  • Charlotte B says:

    The Pioneer Caramel for my daughter who would look great wearing these with her favourite pair of jeans.

  • Gabriella H says:

    The Charm Red for my girl as its a vibrant colour and matches her vibrant personality.

  • Joanie says:

    oh my! I definitely neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed the Ranch Army for my sprightly tom girl.
    Please also pass on the need for Bobux to create Adult sizes, ‘k? Super!
