Mama Mondays – Starting off on the right foot

Bobux Melbourne launch attendees

 Mr D, Little Miss H and I were among twenty-two adults and eighteen young cuties that spent a fun-filled morning with New Zealand footwear company, Bobux at their rebranding and launch event of their Play range of kids footwear. As you can imagine, with that many little ones running around and excited parents chatting away the Together Fit gym, the morning was alive with energy and buzz.

The moment we arrived Mr D just wanted to head straight to the refreshments and nutritious wholefoods catering by Heal.Thy Self Co as if he hadn’t just had breakfast. However as soon as he was fitted a pair of fresh new kicks from the Blaze range, he was ready for some play time. I gave Mr D the option to choose the colour #IWalkBlaze he wanted to get and without hesitation or even looking at the other colours, he went straight for the green high tops. Green is his favourite colour and the pair he picked were a vibrant green, with the pretty colours of pink and purple on the sides in the image of a finch.

Shoe fitting Bobux Melbourne relaunchBlaze Hi Finch BobuxHe’s been wearing these almost everyday since he got them!

His new pair of kicks are super comfortable and so stylish that I saw the lightness in his step as soon as he put them on! I was curious to find out more about the design after hearing Bobux representative Greg Parmenter speak about the Bobux brand, their values and research kids foot development. So I went on their website and found that the reasons why Mr D seemed more agile, speedy and stable on his feet!

– Super lightweight due to the flexible Tetraform rubber! It only weighs 92 grams per shoe so he is able to climb and run a lot more swiftly than before. No more limited coordination – more lightness and flexibility.

– Each shoe has an animal graphic on it which helps Mr D put them on the right way – he was always getting muddled up and putting his shoes on the wrong foot but now he knows the finch goes in the middle!

–  The extended micro armour toe cap means more abrasion resistance for more extreme play

There was a fun photobooth, gym equipment for the kids to play around with, friendly staff that helped out with any questions, amazing food and drinks and face painting! It was a great way to spend our weekday morning and being so close to the beach, we headed out to Williamstown afterwards because Mr D wanted to see the yachts and run along the pier.
