This post is sponsored by Bobux shoes, but all the opinions in it are mine and at the bottom you can score a pair…so please read on!
You’ll probably remember the last post I wrote about bobux shoes, if you don’t you can check it out here. We’ve loved Bobux long before I had any bloggy relationship with them…because they are seriously awesome shoes! Now let’s talk about 4 year olds…and score some custom sneakers!
So being 4, it’s a big developmental stage for kids, they are learning that their likes and dislikes can be expressed easily and that they are able to assert these ideas onto their adults. They basically tell us what they like and don’t like in no uncertain terms. It can result in tantrums, over even the smallest of things.
This week Master 4. …doesn’t like chicken. Or fried rice, but white rice is ok. Broccoli is awesome, but corn is off the list. You get the picture. Whether his tastes are actually changing or not, who knows, he just seems to have learnt to assert these requirements better than before.
Last week he would only wear his “batman” jumper, this week the navy blue merino cardigan is the best jumper. Two weeks ago, despite my desperate pleas, he would not put on two slightly different socks (from the same set but different dinosaurs), this week he willingly put on a hawkeye sock and a captain america sock. I’m confused.
So, you probably understand that I think these sneakers from Bobux are very cool. And very, very convenient if like me you’ve got a 4 year old like mine. Why are they so cool? Well, apart from being a gorgeous white leather sneaker in the Kid+ range (sizes 27-33), they are entirely customisable. The high gloss white leather allows them to be drawn on with the special markers.
You get 5 flouro colours (pink, yellow, orange, blue and green) a black and white pattern with cool animals, and a sneaker designed only by what the whim of the day is. We’ve got the flash on one sneaker and a storm trooper on the other. There’s plenty of white space to decorate too as you please. The velcro straps are perfect for little fingers and they are retailing at $105 a pair. They are also UNISEX! How awesome is that? And Bobux shoes LAST….so you might be lucky enough to use these for two kids!
The next day….you want iron man and ninja turtles? Or you want optimus prime and the hulk? Go ahead. You wipe them clean with a baby wipe or water and a cloth and off you go again. The designs also wash away if the shoes get wet, but that just means…a new opportunity to do a new design…
Thinking outside the box with these, I reckon they’d be awesome to take on a flight…wear them on white, the kids colour on the journey and off they get with custom shoes…wipe them off and do it all over again on the way home!
