Bobux – Limited Edition Solene Roure Range – Step Ups, I Walks & Xplorers

Oh WOW, that’s my reaction to the new range from Bobux. A collaboration between french designer Solene Roure and New Zealand’s own Bobux footwear for babies and toddlers. Currently in Xplorers Step Ups – for those still crawling, taking steps and walking, as well as the IWalks for the more confident walkers and larger children. So bendy, lightweight with a scuff resistant toe, these shoes are hard to beat in terms of function. Then there’s the style! What more can I say, you just need to check them out.

Disney Vans – Due in New Zealand in August – Pre-Order Now – Kids & Adults

Well it’s started already. I have received a request to hold a pair of the new Disney Vans and they are not even due in store until August. So to be fair on all, I have loaded the styles up on the website so that people can message me to hold a size within a style. Here’s were you can view our range, then message or contact us to hold the style & size: Disney Vans – Winnie the Pooh | Mickey & Friends Of course they are so cute! and great for big & little kids We will have 2 styles available – Winnie- the-Pooh Mickey & Friends A word of warning to those a little OCD & have to be matchy matchy. Due to the pattern of the fabric it will be likely that the prints will not match exactly. Here’s what Vans.Com has to say about them: Vans and Disney come together for a magical collaboration that reimagines some of the most beloved and iconic animated characters. Dedicated to those who are young at heart, the Mickey and Friends Disney Era combines the Vans classic low top skate shoe with a custom collage of Disney’s original cast of friends: Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto. The Disney Era also features sturdy canvas uppers with metal eyelets, signature waffle outsoles, padded collar and heel counters for support and flexibility – See more at:... read more

Time to get out the EMU Sheepskin & Wool Boots

Brrr… it was a frost this morning so I was glad to get out my EMU sheepskin boots. I haven’t quite got to the stage of wearing them to work this winter, but no doubt that will come shortly. Of course the next stage is the ‘I’ll wear them to work & then change once I’m there’. This just not seem to happen! It’s so hard, once your toes are so warm, cozy and comfy, to remove your feet  from the luxurious sheepskin and put on the work shoes. The good news is, that this year I might  not have that dilemma.  In store now we have some fabulous and funky EMU women’s fashion styles, as well as some boots that are waterproof. So I can wear them to work & still look ok. Mind you I’ll have to hurry & make my mind up as stocks are running out. Also carried in store are some awesome NZ made Canterbury Leather Sheepskin boots from Christchurch. It’s great to be able to support NZ businesses, especially with the Christchurch rebuild taking sooooo long. Of course there are some great EMU children’s styles as well. Check out the womens sheepskin boots here Check out kids EMU boots here  ... read more

Black School Sandals for small kids feet

This summer Teva have an option for a black school sandal for small kids feet.  The Tirra style has been popular for a number of years in various colours for girls and now we have the full black version for girls starting at a little US8 ( average 2 -3 year old) and going right up to a BIG US7. Yip, thats like a women’s 8 or more. Also pleasing is the fact that it is a good fit on the slightly narrower foot and being neopreen lined is comfy and if it gets wet, it doesn’t matter. It will dry out quickly. This also makes it a good option for beach and casual wear over the long school holidays.   The Tirra Black school sandal  for small to big kids feet is available now at (click here) Foot Forward Kids Shoes – Hamilton, NZ either in store or buy on line.    ... read more
