It is not news that I am what you would call a shoe fan and I love reviewing shoes for both myself and the ladybug…..One of my favorite brands when it comes to shoes for the little lady? Umi and the reason is very simple. Umi offers you a great selection of adorable and well-made shoes. The quality in the materials they use is unbeatable and the attention to detail is second to none, so that is why I have Umi in a very special place when it comes to shoes. If you more reasons to see these are really a great shoe option for your little ones, then you should know that The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) has formally approved all 3 stages of Umi baby shoes with their seal!
I have done many kids shoe reviews and there are a couple of key features that I look for when I am shopping for shoes for the ladybug and those things are comfort, quality, and also that the shoe actually allows the correct development of my bug’s feet. All of these criteria are certainly covered by Umi .
Lucky little me had have the chance to review some of the different Umi shoe designs. Each season I look forward to seeing what new designs they will add to their collection and not once have I been disappointed and this season is no exception. The new additions are here right in time for the new school year and that is what I thought I would get for the ladybug, but then I saw the Radiant boots….If you have followed this blog, then you will know that I have a real weakness for boots and I just couldn’t resist the gorgeous boots for the bug!
The boots are just adorable and my little lady will look like a star this fall….You know she will wear those the minute the temperature drops! Right now it is a bit hot here in south Florida, but this will be perfect a little later this year (probably around January or so). The Radian comes in three different color combinations and I opted for the black boots with the pink flowers.
Umi really did their homework when they designed these adorable boots, from the great quality leather they used for the upper part of the boot to the flowers they used to decorate them to the stitching that accentuates the boots….And if you add the fact that the boots are really comfortable and the lining is made in pink to match the flowers, the boots are simply adorable from top to bottom! The boots as all Umi shoes feature a design on the bottom of the sole to help prevent slipping…As I said Umi do their homework.
At Umi, caring for little feet also means caring for the earth—which means they set their standards sky-high. Every shoe they make is tested for safety and durability and meets strict guidelines for child-safe materials. They use only non-toxic drum-dyed leathers and other environmentally friendly components. Protected in recycled packaging, Umi is a brand that is sure to please parents and Mother Nature alike.
Their shoes are made for much more than just walking. Umi shoes are specially designed for the littlest and hardest working feet in mind. At Umi, their focus is on quality, comfort and style.
From years and years of hand crafting shoes for babies, boys, and girls, they’ve developed a deep understanding of materials, patterns, and footbeds—the building blocks of creating the most comfortable shoes around.
