I'm not the best when it comes to fashion. Sure, I appreciate it. Do I wish I was better at styling myself and my kids? Yes. Do I would love to have the time, energy, and budget to go shopping regularly, pick out the latest trends, and post #OOTD (outfit of the day) pix on Instagram. HELL YES!!
But, it's not me and it's not my life. Instead, my shopping generally consists of scrolling through purges on Facebook kids' clothing resale groups. Which can be fun (and addictive), don't get me wrong! But part of the fun of being a blogging mom is working with both well-known and up-and-coming brands who introduce me to their fabulous products, which I get to test out and then introduce to you all! Not every product that makes its way to my door step meets my expectations, and in turn they do not make it onto my blog. But when something is everything I expected and more - It's happy dance time!
Well, today's happy dance is brought to you by Bobux, maker of stylish, comfortable, and functional footwear for newborns through 5 years old. Bobux makes great shoes for all stages: soft soles for babies, lightweight and flexible shoes for pre- and early-walkers ("xplorers" and "step up"), and durable grippy "i-walk" shoes for confident walkers!
We recently received two pair of Bobux StepUp Classic "Dance" Mary Jane style shoes in gold and silver for our 1 year old twin girls and we absolutely love them!!
My girls have been walking for over 4 months already (since about 9 months) so they're quite steady by now, but they've been going barefoot at home and in very thin soled Robeez or Freshly Picked moccasins when out and about - just enough to keep their feet clean but thin enough so they can easily feel their footing and walk as if barefoot. But now, they're ready for sturdier shoes to protect their feet better and help them learn how to walk in "real" shoes.
These Bobux "StepUp" shoes are perfect for this!! StepUps are built for first walkers with a durable and grippy yet light-weight and extremely flexible rubber sole, they're the perfect shoe to graduate to after crib shoes.
Designed in New Zealand and made in Indonesia, the StepUp Classic "Dance" shoes feature an "anatomical shape," meaning they are built for the rounder shape of new walkers' feet (and they're podiatrist endorsed). They also feature an extremely high quality thick adjustable velcro strap, so it won't cut into baby's foot. They have a flexible and breathable upper leather with leather lining, and come in both silver and gold. They just need to come out with a bronze set and they'll be ready for the next Olympics! Ha!!
I mean, come on, how cute are these shoes?? And if you're into mommy daughter matching, it'd be pretty easy to find a silver or gold to match these!
Also, they come in a really nice box, making these a wonderful gift!! Tis the season, after all!
Head on over to Bobux' website to check out their full line of shoes for kids from birth through 5 years! They have free shipping on orders over $50 (which you'll probably reach if ordering at least 2 pairs).
They also have a great rewards program - for each customer you refer, you'll get points and they'll get $5 off. You also get points for signing up, following them on social, reviewing products, signing up for their newsletter, and of course purchasing products!
