Back To School: Umi Shoes Review and Giveaway


It's hard to believe that it is already time to get our children ready to return to school! Summer surely flew by for my family! My son will be starting Pre-K this year, so my husband and I are just beginning to get a taste of what "back to school" preparation is all about.

We have been shopping for clothes, shoes and school supplies for the past few weeks, trying to be as prepared as possible to start this new journey!

I was given the opportunity to review a pair of shoes from the new Fall line of Umi Shoes, which was super exciting! I chose the Tyler style in Navy for review.


I am extremely pleased with these shoes! Though my son has not started Pre-K yet, I did let him wear his new school shoes to dinner last weekend so that he could give me his opinion of them. He has other shoes by Umi, and they have always been favorite, and the Tyler's are no exception. My son can hardly wait to wear these shoes on his first day of Pre-K!

Cooper said these shoes are very comfortable and "fast", which is the greatest compliment my 4 year old can give a pair of shoes! I love these shoes because they are easy for my son to put on and take off himself, which is very important to him. They also appear to be very sturdy. Considering the life we have gotten out of other Umi shoes, I have no doubt that these shoes will last the entire Fall season, and then some!

Here is a little about the Tyler (from their website):
Tyler for big boys is king of the schoolyard. Crafted from manmade materials with a cool gradient of overlapping foxing and a sleek band of [suede?] at the toe and back, Tyler finds the perfect balance between smart and suave. Adjustable hook and loop closure.

I am extremely pleased with these shoes and would highly recommend them to anyone. If you are searching for the perfect pair of Back To School shoes, you can't go wrong with the huge selection at Umi Shoes!
