Umi Shoes Review

I have been a fan of Umi shoes since my children were first walking because of the exceptional quality, style, comfort and value. Umi currently has a wonderful selection of new fall shoes that would be perfect for back-to-school. When I purchase Umi shoes, I am confident that every pair of shoes is tested for safety and durability and has been created by hand to ensure the perfect fit for your child’s developing foot. Umi shoes are also a great option for eco-conscious families because it uses only non-toxic leather and other environmentally friendly components with recycled packaging.

From the boys new arrivals, the Bodi (SRP $56) is a wonderful pair of shoes for active boys that is made with ultra soft suede and hook and loop closure for easy fastening. This shoe is so stylish and can easily be worn for dressy occasions or for a trip to the playground. I really like the sturdy outsole which is sure to hold up brilliantly with my son who is constantly on the move. This style is available in the following colors including black, chocolate, taupe and dark green. My son commented that his Bodi shoes in black are very comfortable and he likes to “run, jump and play” while wearing his new footwear.

My four year old daughter is just as active as my boys but she absolutely insists on having super stylish “girly” shoes. From the girls new arrivals, the Prema style (SRP $60) is so pretty that Hannah wants to wear these soft pink shoes everywhere. The reinforced toe cap and soles give it extra durability and the padded insert is very comfortable. She likes the hook and loop closure which gives her the confidence to put on her own shoes (she hasn’t mastered the art of tying her shoes quite yet).

Umi shoes are perfect for back-to-school because the special designed generous size fit makes these a long lasting pair of shoes. I always order the exact size from Umi as opposed to ordering up a ½ as I do with other brand shoes because I know that it fits true to size with additional room to grow. Umi takes pride in constructing a shoe that is made using only quality, durable materials so it is ultimately a great value.

Umi has a wide selection of shoes for babies, little boys and girls and big boys and girls. I always love to check out the latest styles for each season and I really like the style and functionality of the new fall shoe line.
