In case you're new here, you should know something about me. I am a shoe lover. Fanatic, really. I always have been. I should have known that having children would absolutely mean more feet for me to find cute shoes for. When I found Umi Shoes I knew I had hit the jackpot of cute shoes for kids. 

I truly adore the children's shoes that Umi carries. Yes, they are cute and stylish. What's more is that they are comfortable for my kids and incredibly durable. As a parent, one of the most important things is that the shoes my kids wear can withstand the test that my kids put them through on a daily basis. I've actually had shoes for my kids before that were more expensive than some of my own and only made it through a short period before falling apart. That is just unacceptable to me. The Umi shoes  that my kids wear, sometimes daily, show total durability. That's probably due to the high quality materials that go into making every pair of shoes from Umi and their stringent quality control checks. It's nice to know that this company is serious about the life of their shoes. Because, let's face it, kids are hard on their shoes.

At Umi, children's shoes are created and crafted with incredibly high standards. Only the highest quality materials are used to create the shoes at Umi. The shoes go through more than twenty quality control checks to make sure that they will pass the test of the busy kids who wear them. The styles at Umi are eye catching and the perfect blend of trendy and classic. The rich, bold colors of the shoes make a statement while the classic designs keep the styles fresh and fun. Perfectly adorable detailing give each and every pair of shoes a unique touch that is totally Umi. Girl shoes from Umi range from ultra girly to fun and sporty. The boy shoes are all boy and the shoes offered at Umi are perfect for little dudes with big style.

Umi has amazing new styles for their Fall Collection. We were sent the boy's style Tiberius in black and the girl's Adelaide in Chocolate. My son absolutely loves his Tiberius shoes. They arrived in perfect time to be his new black shoes for his first year of school. One of the best things about putting Umi shoes on him is knowing that all day long, whether he's at his desk or running in P.E., his feet are comfortable and being fully supported in the most healthy way. Not to mention that they are so very cool looking.

My daughter squealed with delight when she saw the Adelaide shoes. Yes, she's very much like me. These rich brown chocolate shoes are perfectly adorable. The stitching and scalloped detailing is all impecable and the sweet heart on the heel is just so sweet. I love that these shoes are very versatile. They have the wonderful Umi sole that is perfect for running around outdoors while still being beautifully crafted and definitely nice enough for indoor events. I know that these shoes will get plenty of wear this fall. And, like our other Umi shoes, will show no signs of wear even after the craziness that my kids put their shoes through. Really, that is one of the reasons I love Umi shoes so very much.

I definitely recommend Umi shoes. They are always one of my top picks for kid's accessories and definitely a Must Have for Back to School and for Holiday Shopping! You can get Umi shoes from their Online Store.
