BORN IN NEW ZEALAND
Bobux founders - Chris and Colleen Bennett, are a true New Zealand success story - “the best discoveries are right under your nose” and that was certainly the case for the couple.
Bobux began with Chris and Colleen’s quest in 1991 to find a soft flexible shoe that would stay on the feet of their 9 month old daughter, Chloe. At the time, the only offering was hard-soled shoes, that Chloe would not wear.
The first Bobux shoe was created using soft leather and suede and included elastic around the ankle to ensure the shoe actually stayed on and allowed Chloe's feet to develop naturally. That was it - the first Bobux Soft Sole was born!
"Bobux is a family business, with Chloe now a part of the team. Our retailers, agents, staff and everyone involved with Bobux are part of our extended family. It makes sense to us: it was our need as a family to find the right shoe for Chloe that launched an international business, and created a range of shoes that truly support the healthy development of little feet."
Today, Bobux's Head Office is still in New Zeland but the company now sells an innovative range of baby and toddler shoes all over the world. Every product in the ranges maintains the healthy feet ethos established over 20 years ago. Find your closest store here.
FREE TO GROW
At bobux we believe in enhancing the natural development of a child’s foot so they are free to grow and develop healthy feet for life.
Everything we do at Bobux comes from understanding and loving little feet. 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! Learn more.
Barefoot freedom is best so at Bobux we design innovative footwear that mimics the natural freedom of barefeet
The best thing to promote foot health is to allow children to crawl, walk and run barefoot, allowing them to naturally acquire balance, coordination and good posture. Learn more.
We create unique children's footwear that recognises the natural anatomical shape of a changing child's foot to deliver the best comfort and protection for growing feet.
At Bobux, it is paramount that we work in conjunction with internationally recognised footwear specialists, last makers and podiatrists to ensure our shoes continue to meet the unique needs of each developmental milestone, and ensure parental peace of mind. All our ranges feature very specific attributes that promote natural foot development, whatever stage your child is at. See our ranges here.
