I discovered Mox shoes in 2012 (read my initial review here) and I’ve been raving about them ever since. The shoes wowed me because they were SO very comfortable and versatile. I have never worn flip-flops again. The shoes fit into my lifestyle, no matter what I’m doing. You can wear them anywhere, to the pool, the beach, the shops, camping, school pick up and even out for dinner. They are a great travel shoe too, and they have accompanied me on many overseas trips. I am off to Vietnam in January for study, and will be taking a few pairs with me (a pair weighs 300 grams so they won’t add too much weight to your suitcase). I find myself often wearing them instead of sneakers, even when I have to walk a lot. I remember climbing 300 stairs to Mount Phousi in Luang Prabang, Loas, in my Mox, and they were brilliant.
Mox shoes are made from rubber, which I find is nice and soft around my feet, and yet they are extremely sturdy and provide good shock absorbtion too. The great thing about this material is if they get dirty or muddy, you can just hose them off and they will be dry in a jiffy.
When I started wearing Mox, they had a nice selection of six colours, including neutrals like black, navy and beige and a few bright colours too. Now, they have a huge range of 17 exciting colours to match any outfit. The colour selection appeals to teens and kids too. For example, my ballet dancer wears them to ballet practice each week, and changes into her ballet shoes once she is at the studio. They are the ultimate flat to slip on and go. Do yourself a favour and order a pair for summer! My daughters were kindly gifted some shoes and I’ve included some pictures below of our recent stash.
The rubber material encases your foot, and yet they are also lovely and flexible, so they move with your feet.
To save on packaging, Mox shoes come in a lovely 100% cotton, biodegradable, reusable string bag.
We love supporting this 100% Australian owned and run small business, founded by Vel, a mum of three boys. We’ve been loving these shoes for six years strong.
I find them true to size. I am usually a size AU 8, and I find the size 40 the best size for me. Mox don’t have dedicated children’s shoes, but they do start very small at a size 4 in womens, which fit children once they move past the children’s range. Best to follow the sizing guide here.
