Bobux Xplorer Shoes - Review

We were recently select to review a pair of shoes from Bobux's new range and it couldn't of come at a better time as Noah has only just started to walk.

About the Xplorer - What they say

Elastic and Velcro closure - Easy to get on squirming feet and designed to stay on.

Micro armour toe cap - Superfabric textile provides incredible abrasion resistance with maximum flexibility. 

Advanced Eva sole - Unprecedented flexibility allowing for better contact with the ground and improved proprioception (spacial awareness - an important part of learning to walk.)

Concealed sole seams
- No uncomfortable seams rubbing on toes and feet.

About the Xplorer - What we think 

The look
I'm a fan of the Bobux Xplorer appearance. They do come in a range of different colours but the green really stood out to me. The shoes look very different from anything else that is on the market and I think that's great. It's good to have variety when boys shoes are usually so restricted with styles and colours. 

The fit
They fit Noah's feet like a glove, almost like they were made for him. The velcro and elastic fastening is easy to use and the toe guard is a godsend for clumsy toddlers. I do have to say I did struggle getting the shoes onto Noah's feet. Considering my last job I was a trained fitter in a shoe shop I shouldn't of really had a problem with it but I did. A simple tag to pull at the back of the shoe would eliminate that problem and wouldn't compromise the design in any way either. 

The wear
The shoes are very soft and light which makes me feel confident when putting them on my sons feet as I know they will be comfortable for him. Noah toddled about easily in the Bobux Xplorer shoes and they stayed on his feet no matter what mischief he got up to. 

We are very happy with our shoes. They are fab for both indoor and outdoor wear and I feel happy knowing Noah is getting so much support and comfort out of a shoe. I will certainly be keeping my eye on Bobux shoes in the future, I'm a new fan! 

- I was sent this product for the purpose of this review. However all opinions are my own.
