When you have children, you quickly learn that you get what you pay for in regards to children's products. Kids are hard on stuff, especially shoes, so it's super important for me to find my children footwear that is not only stylish and comfortable but we need footwear that is designed to last. So where can you find shoes that combine style, comfort, AND durability? One word: Umi!!! After being a loyal Umi customer now for a couple of years, I could possibly be their biggest fan. Every pair of shoes we have gotten from Umi has lasted way beyond our expectations, which is why I would choose this brand of shoes any day of the week.
Most recently, we received a new pair of shoes from the UmiSport Line and we could not have been more thrilled when they arrived. Our 6 year old son is extremely hard on shoes so we knew these would be perfect for him!!! We let him pick out the pair he wanted and he chose the Connor Style.....funny because this is the exact pair I would have chosen for him as well. He is always off playing in the backyard so I knew these would be right up his alley!
There are a ton of reasons why I love this particular shoe. Number 1, these shoes are really lightweight and my son tells me they are super comfy! He put them on the second they arrived in the mail and I have to pry them off of his feet at nighttime because he doesn't want to take them off. He came home from wearing them to school for the first time and swore to me that they made him run faster than ever. HA! Our son knows how to tie his shoes but he is so busy that he rarely takes the time to stop and do so, which makes this shoe even better. These shoes look like they tie but really they velcro. This means he can get them on and off super quick and the don't slow him down. Perfect for an active 6 year old. I really cold not ask for anything more in a good, quality shoe for a busy boy like our son! He loves Umi Shoes just about as much as I do which is why I like them on Facebook so I can be the first to know when they are running specials so we can stock up!!!
