The original Soft Sole was designed by Bobux back in 1991. It proved a huge hit with parents around the world because it was so different. Made of only soft leather at a time when every shoe company was trying to get kids into hard soled shoes, it was quickly adopted by people that didn’t feel comfortable cramming their kids feet into concrete-esque footwear. As it turned out, this was quite a lot of people.
Simplicity is at the root of the Soft Sole’s genius. Here’s a shoe that actually meets the needs of pre-walker children, both in terms of foot health and usability. It goes on easily, it stays on, and it lets the foot move, bend, splay, grip, strengthen and grow as nature intended.
