YES -I am a shoemaker.
NO - I do not have time to make shoes for my children.
This does give me great angst, believe me, but I have to be realistic about what I can achieve with my meagre quantity of kid-free time.
So after searching far and wide for soft shoes for Hazie, once she grew out of the ones I DID make, I fell head over heels in love with BOBUX.
A New Zealand company, their design and materials are so fantastic, that they are now exported to countries all over the world. Nothing speaks louder than parents who are happy with your products. I just wish I had discovered them sooner, Leo might have had some too!
We just got our new navy pair today, ordered through Ecobabe, as Hazie has trashed her first pink pair. Soft sole is where we're at, they also make first walkers, and more accomplished walkers with sturdier soles.
These are the designs we have, there are so many, it's hard to choose!
