You may have seen some of the lovely new Bobux designs in my recent giveaway here. The shoes are designed for active toddlers, which perfectly describes soon-to-be 3-year-old Pierre ! Bobux say : "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."
We chose to receive the i-walk navy fast forward trainers from their new collection. As you can see, Pierre was very proud when they arrived and couldn't wait to try them on.
They're actually a bit on the big size - I decided to go for the next size up, as we were ordering online, to make sure they wouldn't be too small - so they will be absolutely perfect for when he heads off to school for the first time in September. (Eeeek ! I'm going to have to stop saying eeeek every time I put "Pierre" and "school" in the same sentence !!) The fact that they're slightly big didn't stop him walking and even running around all over the place in them though !
I asked him if they felt comfortable and he said yes (but that doesn't actually mean a lot - he says yes to most things !). The flexible sole seemed to help him run properly - he usually has a strange way of running with his legs slightly splaying out sidewards when he runs in his normal boots (like his legs are going too fast for his body!). I love the fact that they are so easy to put on because they open nice and wide and the tongue doesn't get in the way. The fact that they have Velcro fastenings will make it much easier for Pierre until he learns to tie his shoelaces too.
If you've looked at Bobux shoes in the past but think that your toddler may have outgrown them, they've changed their size availability and they now go up to size 28.
