UMI Children's Shoes :: Fun Picks for Back-To-School {Giveaway Ends 9/5}


Kids have started going back-to-school this week in my area, and with that I've seen a lot of crisp new backpacks, outfits, and of course, shoes. A staple for every child, new shoes are especially fun to welcome the cool Fall weather and the new school year too.

I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

For a kids shoe company that remembers that every step your child makes is important as their first, check out Umi Children's Shoes. Boasting high quality and child-safe materials, Umi shoes are built to last and keep your child's growing feet safe no matter what each day brings. Umi's Fall collection is pulling off a mod, sophisticated feel for big boys this year especially. With dark colors and leather material, pulling together a snazzy look for Buddy is a breeze!


After reviewing the Laren sandal earlier this year, this time we opted for the Henley II style in the Olive color. Part high-top, part boot, the Henley II is a great addition to any boy's shoe collection. This style features a real suede leather upper, rubber sole, velcro closure, and extra support on the back of the heel.
 
There won't be any slipping or sliding with these rubber soles! They will have great traction and plenty of stick when needed on rainy days, and yet this sturdy rubber doesn't compromise the great flexibility these shoes still have.

 I like the tongue design on the Henley II. The velcro closure holds the tongue in place when closed, but also allows the tongue to completely fold down when open, making the shoes easier to put on.


I'm planning on getting some sort of spray leather protecting product to prolong the suede leather upper. I think that with prolonged use, and a few rough playground play dates, we might have an issue with wear. However, taking the proper steps to protect the leather should keep it looking new and beautiful for the entire life of the shoes.

  • Durable outsoles
  • Leather uppers
  • Hook-and-loop strap closure

    The olive color is lovely, and will coordinate well with the rich deep colors of Buddy's Fall and Winter wardrobe very nicely. I also love the touch of lime and brown that surrounds the bottom outside of the shoe. It adds that extra bit of personality that is perfectly subtle for a boy's shoe. The Henley II is great if you need a shoe that can also work great for Sunday dress, or any other occasion where a more dressy shoe is required.

    Buddy says they're comfy, and that he can still run pretty fast in them (of course, very important to any young boy!). Another win from Umi! We love their shoes, and the high quality is always very obvious.
