I bought a pair of Umi shoes as a Christmas gift for A. this year. It’s a company I never took very seriously because they’re quite expensive, but I was fortunate to stumble on their site during a 50% off sale they were having for the holidays. I was really surprised at the quality and care they put into their craftsmanship and understood a little more why they charge a premium for their products. They also have a social mission, dedicated to being an environmentally friendly company using sustainable products and packaging. My son loves his Umis and always runs to me with these in hand when it’s time to go outside.
Style-wise, these shoes are super cute with a variety of colors and styles trending on the conservative side (no bling or big logos anywhere) but definitely versatile enough to dress up or down.
I can’t justify paying full-price for a pair just yet since toddler feet grow so quickly, but next time there’s a sale, you’ll totally find me there. Speaking of sales, you can get 10% off any new styles with code NEWSPRINGSALE12 at checkout. There’s also a nice selection of clearance items, including the cute Tendems I mentioned above.
