Umi Shoes Spring 2013 Review and $60 Gift Card Giveaway



Babies grow so fast and their feet grow even faster, or so it seems! Just when you breathe a sigh of relief that you have shoes for them for a season or two, before you know it they need a new pair. This isn't a big deal for Baby T, he has 6 older boy cousins! Baby E on the other hand, she is the little princess among all the princes, so I'm always looking for shoes for her and we like to stick to very few pairs of nice quality. Instead of five pairs that are cheap, she may have just one pair of sandals and one pair of Mary Janes that she wears all the time and that are comfortable. She was filled with joy at receiving the Natalia shoes from Umi's new spring/summer line. Baby T got the rugged Zander shoes to outfit him for his spring, summer, and fall adventures. 



Baby E absolutely loves the classic pink Natalia sandals. Okay, so she loves anything pink, I admit. But she does wake up in the morning and the first thing she does is put these shoes on since I don't allow her to wear them outside in below freezing weather! Can't blame her. I give her the excuse of 'breaking them in' before spring arrives. If and when eventually spring arrives, she'll be wearing these with some tights and barefoot in the summer. I can't try them on, but she insists they are very comfortable!



The fresh styles from Umi for 2013 are absolutely gorgeous and I don't want to spoil it for you, check it out and see for yourself. It's hard to make just one choice! The girls espadrilles are beautiful, and the canvas print Mary Janes? Don't get me started. Having a girl is hard, girl's shoes are just too cute! Umi has great styles for boys as well, the oxfords and sneakers are super stylish. The Zander shoes that Baby T is trying on here are perfect for some exploration outdoors. They are rugged and bulletproof, for all the things little boys like to do.

We are huge fans of Umi shoes and love the new styles they come up with each season. One thing that I would love to see them explore in the future is the possibility of minimalist (or 'barefoot') children's shoes. Those are so hard to find, but I would love to have more options for flexible-sole shoes for older children, not just babies. It's a niche that hasn't really been filled yet in the world of kids shoes.
