Why not share this post!

I never knew that shopping for baby & toddler shoes could be so confusing until I had a baby of my own. Wearing the correct shoes is important and ensures that your child's feet are free to grow and develop properly.When looking at buying shoes for your toddler it is important to consider their development stage and ensure that you are buying the correct shoes. One brand that is a leader in this field is Bobux. They are one of the leading brands of shoes for children aged 0-5, and they have a great range of shoes for every stage of development. If you are wondering which shoes you need, we have put together a simple guide below:


Prewalkers are designed to be worn for newborns up to those who are beginning to take their first steps. Through unrestricted movement, soft soles allow the foot to flex and grip and refine and strengthen, setting the physical foundation for a foot to grow into adulthood. You can find the full range of Boboux Prewalker shoes here (including the lovely designs below).

Baby Walking Shoes

Once your child has taken their first steps, they'll start walking a lot more, and you'll find that the soft sole shoes will no longer suit their needs. The Bobux  Step Up and Play range is designed to meet the needs of children learning to walk, cruising, and who are new to unassisted walking. They are also designed to accommodate the activities that children of this age are doing - playing, running, jumping, kicking and climbing! See the full range of Bobux Baby Walking Shoes here. bobux first walkers

Toddler & Preschooler Shoes

Once your toddler has mastered the art of walking, the activities that they engage in change again. They are running and jumping and a lot more active, and this kind of activity requires flexibility along with added grip. The Bobux IWalk is designed specifically for this purpose. You can see the full range here.

3 years later, this guide for baby shoes is still on point. There are so many things to take into account when shopping for footwear... such a headache. That's why I usually leave my little one barefoot most of the time :)
