Back to school season is upon us, folks! Are you ready?
This year, my oldest will be a Sophomore in high school. (How did that even happen?!) And Sophie, my middle child, will be starting Kindergarten. Xander, my youngest, is right behind her, since he's only a year younger.
This season, I wanted to get Sophie some shoes that are not only adorable, but can also withstand the use and abuse of very active little children. Of course Xander gets a pair, too, by default. It's only fair, since his siblings get new shoes for school this time of year.
Anyway, my kids are monkeys that love to climb, run, jump, and play. I have to be honest, I sometimes have a hard time keeping up with them, especially if I haven't had my coffee. Their new shoes from Umi Children's Shoes will definitely be able to endure, without coffee, too! Because...well...shoes, unlike exhausted mothers, don't need coffee to function!
The awesome folks at Umi sent us a couple pairs of shoes from their new Fall 2015 line to check out for ourselves. I have been a HUGE fan of this brand for quite some time, so I knew I would be delighted by the quality and style of these shoes. Of course, I wasn't disappointed! Seriously, this brand rocks my socks.
As always, our shoes arrived with lightning speed. The kids couldn't wait to try them on!
Sophie received the oh-so-chic Stomp in Cherry. These boots look a LOT like the boots I used to practically live in as a 90's teen, and they are so darn adorable.
The Stomp boot comes in either the Cherry you see here, or a nice, mock-patent Black. They feature side zippers, which I absolutely love, but also come with laces. We received an extra set in a shimmery black should Sophie want to change up her look a bit!
These boots are made from a man-made upper material, have a cushioned footbed for comfort, and have flexible, durable outsoles. With Umi, one thing you can always count on is quality. These boots are definitely made to last!
Xander got these awesome Ava shoes in New Blue. They are an easy-on slip-on style, which I absolutely love. They also feature a cushioned footbed and durable outsoles.
Our favorite part? The groovy faux-snakeskin appearance, of course! How stylish is that?! Xander is convinced these shoes were made from the skin of a magical blue snake. I'm not going to burst his bubble and tell him the truth just yet.
Sophie and Xander are totally loving their new fall kicks from Umi Children's Shoes. Not only are they fashionable and funky, they are also incredibly comfortable for everyday wear. As a mom, I appreciate the fact that they're designed specifically for growing feet.
So if you're looking for stylish and durable shoes for your little ones this back to school season, definitely check out Umi Children's Shoes. They have so many fun styles for both boys and girls, and these shoes are amazing in quality and are built to last! We've been Umi fans for quite some time, and I can tell you that the kids outgrow these shoes long before they wear out. Yep. They're pretty darn awesome, and worth every penny!
