Measure the length of your child's foot by standing them on a flat surface with your full weight on your foot, then measure the distance from the back of your heel to the tip of your longest toe (normally their big toe).This measurement will give you their foot length. This will allow for between 6mm - 12mm of growing room (the maximum recommended is 15mm). You do not have to add the growing room onto the foot length. If your child is right on the maxiumum recommended you may want to go up a size.
As you can see the Xplorer, Step Up and I-Walk ranges include size 22. This is because of the different developmental stages children can be at when wearing this size - some are walking confidently, others are still finding their feet!

The 100% leather upper provides breathability and the leather pull tab makes these dress shoes easy to put on. The double velcro closure is an added bonus making sure for increased adjustability and comfort style making it well suited for most feet.
Development stage: These are a great option for children doing 10 steps or more at a time on their own. If they are only just taking their first steps then consider our Pre-walker range including the Bobux Xplorer
About the Stepup Range:
The Stepup range is designed to cater for those starting to take their first steps but not yet confident with their walking. This range is flexible and soft for growing feet but feature harder wearing rounded soles for outdoor adventures. Carefully designed to form fit first walkers and using soft materials that fit snugly around chubby feet. Step Ups are styled like little shoes (who doesn’t want cool kicks for their kids?) while retaining all the important adjustability and stability features of healthy first walker footwear.
First walkers have a unique foot shape, their little feet are still chubby and cute like they were as newborns but their heels are now formed enough to support their weight. Bones are beginning to form in their feet but they’re still rounded and feature a layer of fat across the soles. Their arch and achilles remain undefined like chubby babies’ feet, but don’t worry, they’ll soon be taking shape.
