Umi Shoes Review & $60 Gift Card Giveaway


There is only one thing better than buying shoes for myself... buying them for my kids! I love buying clothes and shoes for my boys, but I am super-picky about the shoes I buy for them. I want the shoes to be cute and fit their personalities, but I also want them to be durable and comfortable, of course. My boys love playtime, so they always put their shoes to the test every single day. I had the opportunity to work with Umi Shoes and had to tell you all about them because they are great shoes for babies, girls and boys!

About Umi (from website)
We are Umi Children's Shoes and around here, happy little feet begin with our gentle hands. Hands that meticulously craft each and every shoe for teh utmost in comfort and fit. Hands that simply know how to make a better children's shoe. So: what makes a better children's shoe? Years or experience working with age-appropriate lasts, patterns and buttersoft leathers give Umi a step up over everyone else. At Umi, all we make are children's shoes, and we believe every step your child takes is as important as their very first.
Shoes are made for much more than walking. Umi shoes are specially designed for the littlest and hardes working feet in mind. At Umi, our focus is on quality, comfort and style. From years and years of hand crafting shoes for babies, boys and girls we've developed a deep understanding of materials, patterns, footbeds -- the building blocks of creating the most comfortable shoes around.


My Thoughts
With Spring here and Summer quickly approaching, I have been on the lookout for some quality sandals for the boys. Last year we reviewed a pair of Umi Sandals and they are still in great condition! This year we chose the brown Umi Whitny sandals to review, which are available for girls and boys. The Whitny is a classic closed-toe fisherman sandal made with suede. The suede used for these shoes are incredibly soft and the entire shoe is bendable. I love finding shoes that are so comfortable and also light-weight for my children to wear.
We spend a great deal of time outdoors and I picked the Whitny sandals because they provided air to the feet so they don't get too sweaty and because they are closed-toe. The boys play hard, but with the closed-toe sandals, I know they won't stub their toes!

We absolutely love these shoes and think they are the perfect Spring and Summer shoes! We can wear them outside on the playground, to the beach or even with a cute outfit when we go out for dinner. They are versatile, soft and comfortable! For the bargain price of only $55 and FREE shipping, we at Children Teaching Mama think this is quite a steal!

Ready for a chance to win your little ones some awesome shoes?
