Shoe Review : Umi Shoes + Giveaway


Its official.. my son's shoe collection is now better than mine.

We got a pair of Puggle baby shoes from Umi and they are soo pretty and not like anything else I've ever seen. The combination of colors plus the great thick Velcro strap certainly puts any baby who owns a pair into the "super fashion diva" category. Every detail is so well thought out I am actually jealous of these shoes. I love the little dots on the side of the Velcro strap, though its such a small detail, the little details really add up. These shoes also offer a elastic cuff which helps the shoes stay on. Connor is trying to walk and soon these little shoes will be his partner in chasing Melos around the yard.

The baby shoes are wonderful, and beautiful, but I was totally floored by the quality of these children's shoes. I just cannot do the Cosmos justice through a picture, you must simply feel of these shoes to understand. I can safely say, I personally have never owned a pair of shoes this nice. If you hang around me long enough you will learn I am a leather FREAK, meaning quite simply my many many long years riding and competing with show jumpers (horses) left me with an appreciation for fine leather. Umi certainly did not spare any expense when making these shoes as not only is the leather top quality (and soo soft) the insoles are super cushy. I can safely say I will not feel an ounce of guilt putting these on my son as I know his little feet will be in the best of shoes. I only wish I had a pair in my size. (you know, if they made one more size higher than their biggest pair, a size 37, I could wear them! My feet are soo tiny... oh well)

The best part? Umi is giving away one free pair of their Infant shoes. Included styles would be the Puggle (Boy or Girl), Pearl, or Primrose.

My fav Umi shoes are the boys ZAZU. I love the boot cut because of the extra ankle support it gives, and the black and tan color combo is very boy chic.

I just discovered these shoes today and LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE them. My favorites the Puggles in navy and blue (they weren't on the Umi site but they are at Piperlime), but my second favorite are the ones you posted (navy/green/orange). My son tried them on this afternoon and boy are they nice shoes and a massive improvement on the ubiquitous Robeez.
