Umi has just recently launched their Fall styles and they are definitely a hit in this house. With Umi shoes you high quality without losing style or comfortablility. With children's shoes all of the above is very necessary.
I let Makenna pick out her shoes and she chose the Cassie ($59), in pink! PINK. Needless to say I have to buy her another pair of shoes because pink can't possibly go with every outfit. These glossy patents are a modern mary jane that have a satiny smooth finish.
Kendall joined the shoe action with these adorable Bluet style Umi shoes ($57). We'e already put this bad boys to the test by letting her play by the water table in them. Time after time of getting splashed on and well soaked the shoes look the same. I love how they added perfect traction from slipping with the rubber sole. To make everyone's life easier when it comes to putting shoes on a toddler (or is that just my toddler that hates shoes?) they have completed the Bluet with an adjustable hook and loop closure.

Umi has been hand crafting shoes for babies, boys and girls for years and years and through this they have developed a deep understanding of materials, patterns, footbeds—the building blocks of creating the most comfortable shoes around.
Umi was recognized for their shoes' flexibility and traction – two key attributes to look for when shopping for little ones. Umi shoes are designed to fit children properly, with shoes for every stage of development. They are made of leather insoles and full leather linings, which act like a natural, supportive, and non-restrictive "landing pad."

You can see in the picture to the right the curved shape of the shoe. Umi offers shoes for every stage of life from infant 0-9months, crawler-cruiser 7-13 months and first walker 10-24 month. Each stage is specific to your child's deveoloping little feet. See that green dot in the picture? That indicates which stage shoe category which definitely takes the guess work out of shoe shopping.
