My daughters' first word was "shoe". Her shoe collection now is one to be very jealous of - and she's not even 2 yet! It therefore feels very appropriate that we were recently sent a fabulous pair of soft leather shoes from the lovely people at Bubshoes. "Wow", were her words when she saw these ones, and we popped them on to try out straight away.
Now, you can tell when something is not to my little madam's liking - she still likes to hurl certain items / food across the room, however these little hip shoes stayed firmly on her feet all day. And that is one of the joys of these shoes - the fact that they do stay on bubbas feet (and we all know how they like to take their shoes / socks off all the time), plus the fact that the leather is super soft and just moulds around the littles ones little feet perfectly.
Bubshoes have been imported into Australia from South Africa and are relatively new to Australian shores. There is an array of different hip designs to choose from, and sizes range from newborn to 24 months. All shoes are handmade from genuine leather, and are just perfect for the crawler and then ultimately, the early walker.
My little lady is now a proficient walker / runner, and of course, is already is quite happy toddling around in normal shoes, however she seemed to rather like the comfort of these shoes, especially around the house. Also a perfect option when travelling - perhaps on board a long haul flight when one would normally shuffle about in socks. Bubshoes are a perfect compromise.
The Bubshoes website is simple and clean looking and therefore a joy to navigate through...plus, they currently offer free delivery within Australia.
