The Xplorer range from Bobux is very on trend and seamlessly combines both form and function, to create the perfect everyday sneaker for children.

The sole design is lightweight, and super flexible, which ensures that your little one has full freedom of movement whilst crawling, cruising and walking.

Alongside the avant-garde styling the shoe also features new, innovative textile technology such as the micro-armour plated toe cap which ensures that the high wear toe area is protected from scuffing.

Kids are going to love the simplicity and comfort of these shoes, just as parents are going to love the ease of wear, durability and style.


Safety:

Choose footwear made from safe, soft material.  Little feet need to move, and they often end up in little ones’ mouths so it’s great to have confidence that they are safe forthose sucking moments.

All Bobux shoes use the highest quality leather that meet the strictest international shoe and even toy standards so you can be 100% sure your little ones are safe when feet meet mouth!


About little feet:

Children’s feet are very different from adults’ – they’re wider across the toes, narrower at the heel and the inner arch is lined with fatty tissue. There are also large gaps between the bones, which are soft like jelly. So, it’s not really surprising that little feet are quite vulnerable.

From newborn to around four years old, little feet go through a range of changes. The fatty tissue in the inner arch is exercised away with movement, little bones start to harden and form and muscles learn how to grip the floor. Incredibly though, all 26 bones and 36 joints are not fully formed until 13 years of age!

Because little feet start life so incredibly soft and pliable, they need absolute flexibility to develop as Mother Nature intended. Tight fitting socks, rigid soles and materials that don’t move with wriggles and stretches can hamper healthy development.

Choosing the right shoe - information from Bobux.

 

 

Which type of Bobux should you choose?

Little feet start life so incredibly soft and pliable. They need absolute flexibility to develop as Mother Nature intended. Bobux believes tight fitting socks, rigid soles and materials that don't move with wriggles and stretches, can hamper healthy development. The range of Bobux shoes available at The Sleep Store can be broken down in to three main styles, Soft Sole, Step Up and i-Walk. Bobux has created each of these ranges to offer a different level of support and structure suited to the different stages of development a childs feet go through. Here's a breakdown...

Soft Soles - This type is ideal for babies that have started to crawl around and explore. They give their feet freedom to move and grow. They provide them with protection and comfort whilst ensuring secure grip.

Step Up  - This type is ideal for infants that have taken first steps in the last few weeks. First time walkers have a unique foot shape, which is reflected in the Step Up range. They are as flexible as a shoe can get for enabling unrestricted development.

i-Walk - This type is ideal for confident walkers that love running, jumping and going on adventures. A confident walker has a more developed, but still unique foot shape. The i-walk range accommodates this, providing the best possible flexibility whilst adding grip for kids on the go.

Size 22 iWalk or Size 22 Step Up?

The I Walk is a different shape to the Step Up which make it a different fit, the actual lengths are the same.

When it comes to deciding whether to go with the I Walk 22 or stay in the Step Up 22 comes down to how well the child is walking and how much fat is still around the top and ball of the foot.  If in doubt stay in the Step Up!

It terms of determining how much room is at the end the toe to end of the shoe:

If the foot has measured at the bottom of a size, there will be approx. 12mm of room left to grow.  For example: if a child’s foot length is 140mm, they will be a size 23 and have 12mm left to grow.

If the foot has measured at the top of a size, there will be approx. 6mm of room left to grow. For example: if a child’s foot length is 145mm, they will be a size 23 and have 6mm left to grow.

 

What Bobux believe in...

Bobux want children to be free to grow and develop healthy feet for life.

Everything Bobux does comes from understanding and loving little feet. It is a fact that during the first five years of a child's life, their feet undergo an enormous amount of change. Children's feet need room to grow, flex, strengthen and develop naturally.

The best thing to promote foot health is allowing children to crawl, walk and run in bare feet. It allows them to naturally acquire balance, coordination and good posture.

Footwear should provide little feet with protection from harsh surfaces, but never hinder their freedom to grow. Nothing is more important than shoes that allow unrestricted, anatomical development.

 

 

Passion & focus

For the past two decades Bobux have recognised that barefoot is best for natural foot development. They draw on this philosophy every day to create footwear that mimics the freedom of barefeet.

To ensure Bobux shoes continue to meet the unique needs of each developmental milestone, Bobux has partnered with internationally recognised footwear specialists, last makers and podiatrists for innovative use of design techniques and materials.

All of the Bobux ranges feature very specific attributes that promote natural development.
