Mama Loves: Podiatrist-endorsed kids’ footwear that’s super stylish

When it comes to finding footwear for little feet, there are a few boxes that MUST to be ticked – comfort, practicality, quality and durability. Sometimes this means that style takes a backseat. But not when it comes to Kiwi brand-gone-global, Bobux.

Protecting and nurturing growing feet is the Bobux specialty, and with their new Spring/Summer 2018 Collection here, you can be sure they’re delivering on all things foot health, comfort AND style this season!

Like every Bobux Collection, SS18 was designed from a foundation of foot-health best practice. Endorsed by respected podiatrists around the world, Bobux shoes are built to meet the needs of kids through every stage of their development. In shoes designed especially for their unique little feet, kids are more comfortable and their feet are free to move and grow naturally.

Leather is the star of the show in the Bobux Spring/Summer 2018 Collection. Developed by their own team of Kiwi designers, SS18 sees a focus on supreme quality, luxe finishing and super-softness. Styling in the range is kept simple and understated so the beautiful, natural qualities of the leathers are centre stage.

Naturally porous, leather shoes like those in the Bobux SS18 Collection draw out moisture to let feet breathe, keeping them dry, comfortable and healthy (kids’ feet sweat twice as much as adults’, so you can see how this would be useful!). The natural flexibility of leather means it moves like a second skin, molding to the unique shape of kids’ feet and getting more and more comfortable the more the shoes are worn.

The ultra-soft material is kind to delicate skin that can otherwise be prone to blisters and discomfort, and although it may pick up a few scuffs here and there, its natural resistance to abrasion means leather shoes last.

The stunning leather sandals and shoes in the Bobux Spring/Summer 2018 Collection have got growing feet covered this season. All styles feature intuitive fastening mechanisms, that make getting shoes on and off a breeze – perfect for kicking your sandals off for a spontaneous water fight!

Here are three of our favs!

1 // Hampton in Silver Shimmer, $90

Strappy, open-toe styles are always a hit for summer, and this Bobux Collection sees a huge variety for boys and girls alike. Open-toe styles such as the Hampton can be fully opened for ease of fit and adjustability.

2 // Chase in Toffee, $45

For those who prefer the protective element of closed-toe sandals, the Collection has a range of styles such as the Chase that encase the forefoot, with cutouts providing added breathability.

3 // Boston in Rio Red, $95

And for days that call for something with a bit more coverage, Bobux’ new trainer, Boston, fits the bill with on-trend street-styling and breathable leather, or to keep feet comfortable throughout the day, the Lo Dimension features a Merino lining that naturally regulates body temperature.
