What we believe in…
At Bobux we want children to be free to grow and develop healthy feet for life
Everything we do at Bobux comes from understanding and loving little feet. It is a fact that during the first five years of a child’s life, their feet undergo an enormous amount of change. Children’s feet need room to grow, flex, strengthen and develop naturally.
The best thing to promote foot health is allowing children to crawl, walk and run in bare feet. It allows them to naturally acquire balance, coordination and good posture.
Footwear should provide little feet with protection from harsh surfaces, but never hinder their freedom to grow. Nothing is more important than shoes that allow unrestricted, anatomical development.
Our passion…our focus
For the past two decades Bobux has recognized that barefoot is the best for natural foot development. We draw on this philosophy every day to create footware that mimics the freedom of bare feet.
To ensure our shoes continue to meet the unique needs of each developmental milestone, Bobux partnered with internationally recognised footwear specialists, last makers and podiatrists for innovative use of design techniques and materials.
All of our ranges feature very specific attributes that promote natural development.

First made famous by the bossa nova rhythms of the 1960s, Ipanema is the most glamourous neighbourhood in Brazil. Situated in the south of Rio de Janeiro those who visit say it is home to the most beautiful people in the world. It’s spirit and soul is drawn from the culture that emanates from the stunning beach sitting adjacent to the Copa Cabana. The stunning tropical sunshine entices the beautiful people to surf and sunbathe through the day and dance in the coolest bars and clubs into the night.
It is from this culture that the inspiration is derived for iPANEMA footwear. The 2010 collection is overflowing with the happy and exotic spirit of Brazilian beaches. This Summer’s styles are a variation of bright colours adorning exotic and bold prints. Crystals, charms and gemstones cling to straps like sea urchins. The beautiful wave-like tiles of the sidewalk that runs parallel to the sand feature throughout the collection. These flip flops and sandals are the focal part of your beach outfit.
Our products represent much more than fashion though. We have a strong environmental and ethical influence that aims to preserve all this natural beauty for generations to come. This year’s collaboration with Gisele Bündchen supports a Climate Change project. It is this strong sense of social responsibility coupled with cutting-edge technologies that create the unique style of iPANEMA.
