Back to school season is here and with that comes shopping for back to school outfits, school supplies and gear and new school shoes. Having high quality shoes for your children is essential as they support children’s feet plus if your children have PE daily like ours, they need a good shoe that offers traction. Although, high quality shoes usually cost more, they will last longer, make your child’s feet happy and provide exceptional comfort. Umi Children’s Shoes are a brand I recommend to everyone I know and for many reasons. Umi knows how to make a quality children’s shoe, as they hand craft each shoe to provide the best quality, comfort and style. We have reviewed (and bought) many shoe styles from Umi and each shoe has lasted. Now, with back to school shopping season arriving, you’ll want to take a look at their back to school fall styles that include adorable boots, stylish moccasins, Mary Jane styles and much more.
I had Zoe have a look at their styles and she immediately chose an ankle boot style. The Ravern boot in black multi is a chic ankle boot without shoe strings making them an easy choice for younger girls yet still a fantastic option for our big girls. The butterfly appliqué makes this boot fashionable as do the silver studs embellishments. There is an adjustable Velcro strap with silver detail and one for looks. The back pull straps are enhanced with X stitching and there is also a half flower detail near the toe of the boot. Each detail makes this a one-of-a-kind boot yet the quality is amazing. Because they are constructed from hand you can tell the detail is exceptional from the fine even stitching to the leather uppers to the high quality thick sole with grips. Even though a boot, the non-skid surface will allow your child to wear them out to play even in the gym without worry of slipping. The ankle has enough support to support the heel and they look fashionable with any outfit; jeans, skirt, leggings. Zoe has worn these almost daily since arriving. She doesn’t care that it is hot out; she says they are “comfy”, “cute”, and “her favorite shoe ever.” She absolutely adores them and I agree 100% with her reasoning. Umi tests each shoe for durability and uses child-safe materials including non-toxic drum dyed leathers even protecting them in recycled materials.
If you haven’t had a chance to purchase a baby or kids shoe from Umi yet, you really are overlooking the best shoes for children. With many styles for infants, boys and girls there is something that will appeal to anyone. They are so trendy even celebrities put their children in them. I always purchase a size up for extended wear but in my opinion they run a bit big so be sure to print out the size chart before ordering your child’s shoe. Umi offers free ground shipping on all their shoes and you’ll want to check out their deal of the month! Don’t run from the price, they will endure the day to day life of children!
