My daughter has had a shoe fascination since she was just a little bitty baby. Actually, "shoes" was the first real word she spoke! I guess when you're a baby and you're at ground level most of the day, you get to see a lot of shoes coming and going.
Riley has even made taking her shoes off and on a game, and loves to play with her shoes like toys from time to time. So, when I saw the high quality, adorable looking shoes offered by Umi Shoes, I just knew that Riley would want to wear a pair. Keep reading to see if I was right!
Umi Shoes has years of experience making only children's shoes. Each pair of their shoes is meticulously crafted to give little feet the utmost in comfort and fit. Their age-appropriate lasts, patterns and buttersoft leathers are what makes Umi Shoes a step above the rest.
Every shoe Umi makes is also tested for safety and durability and made from only non-toxic drum-dyed leathers and other environmentally friendly components. Their shoes are even protected in recycled packaging, so as to leave a smaller footprint on the Earth.
I was very pleased when the Pendant Raspberry children's shoes from Umi Shoes arrived, for I was surprised at what a well-made shoe this was. The soft rubber sole was very flexible and appeared as if it would be very comfortable on Riley's feet as she was running and jumping about. I also thought this shoe was absolutely adorable!
I love the classic closed-toe styling of the shoe itself and the green and white floral accents were so well done too. My favorite feature though was the rick-rack detailing on the Velcro strap. The white stitching all around the shoe was also flawless. I consider the Velcro closure to be a plus for now Riley can easily take these shoes off and on by herself, and any mom knows that toddlers just love doing everything by themselves right now!
Riley loves these shoes and thinks of them more like toys than actual footwear. She'll put these on by herself when she's in the mood to run and jump around the house. Riley also fancies these shoes her "ballet slippers" and is always dancing around like a little ballerina when she wears them. I think these are fabulous shoes and highly recommend the selections from Umi! Any child will get quite a kick out of these stylish shoes with every little step they take!
