I-Walk hold a special place in the heart of Bobux designers. At this stage children are starting to have more of a say in what shoes they want to wear so, aesthetically, we get to have a bit of fun.
Of course there is much that needs to be taken into account at this critical stage. Running and jumping poses interesting design challenges along with the less obvious mental development going on at this stage.
Based on Bobux’ expert foot health foundations and styled to demand attention, it’s no surprise I-Walk have been such a massive hit around the world.
As soon as kids can walk confidently they want to run and jump. This kind of activity requires a different approach in shoe design and Bobux I-Walk are specifically designed for this stage.
Taking off and stopping running, changing direction quickly, gripping the ground after a jump; at I-Walk stage there is a diverse range of motion that feet must now accommodate. Developmentally, their feet are becoming much stronger, more defined and leaner. Their toes are spreading and the fatty layer beneath the foot is disappearing.
Changes in the shape of the foot at this stage are reflected in our unique custom ‘lasts’ and healthy foot development principles are incorporated into every design.
