Life With Bobux
Set your store
Back in the early 1990s, Bobux Founders Chris and Colleen Bennett were searching for shoes for their baby daughter Chloe. Unable to find the very best for their little girl, Chris took to the garage and created the world’s first pair of Soft Soles. Today Chloe has two babies of her own, and Bobux is a household name around the world! We caught up with the three Bennett kids Chloe, Hannah and Sam to hear what it was like growing up in the world of Bobux, and where Bobux has taken them on the 30 year journey to now.
It’s International Women’s Day, and today we wanted to celebrate some of the leading women who help make Bobux great. From the women who design our shoes to the women keeping our company running day to day, intelligent, creative women who help make the world’s best shoes for children’s feet. (But don’t worry there’s lots of men here too - but that’s another post)
Becoming a family looks different for everyone. Whether you’re a surrogate, an IVF mum, two dads/mums, a single parent; celebrating the beginning of a new life is such an exciting part of the journey. Read along as guest blogger Laura O'Riley shares with us her top tips on celebrating by hosting a baby shower!
Bobux customer Maraya Bell was lucky enough to get her hands on our new Scout and Piper school shoe styles when we released them to Australian retailer, Shoes and Sox in early 2020. One year on, Maraya lets us know how they've held up with her two active kids over the last year.
..."It turned out, that I was not able to become pregnant normally. The doctor told me, that the only solution was IVF treatment. At that moment, I felt, that I had failed as a woman, and I was heart-broken"
