Despite what all the white stuff on the ground says, spring is just around the corner. Okay, maybe that's wishful thinking, but spring will arrive sooner or later and we're ready when it's time to trade in the kids' snow boots for some cute and comfortable shoes thanks to UMI.
As parents, we put value on finding the best first shoes for baby or for appropriate shoes for first walkers, but the need for adequate support and comfort extends well beyond those first few pairs. UMI is committed to comfort and it shows in the details of all their shoes - from UMI baby to big kids shoes. Toddler shoes, like the red Bodi C pair Max is wearing, are flexible, lightweight, and breathable. There's comfort and padding in all the right places to ensure his feet are comfortable even when he's running around like a little wild man.
UMI shoes don't lose comfort features as they grow in size. In fact, many pairs, like the Morie H on my daughter, have UmiCloud Tech memory foam insoles to ensure comfort all day long. And, can I just say how much I appreciate the easy-on easy-off but totally stable velcro closures on many styles, including Cruz B II. When getting three kids ready in the morning, I need all the help I can get and it's a huge help when the kids can dress themselves from head to toe.

As much I value all the design features that make UMI a good choice for my children's feet, I also LOVE the style and look of the shoes. My three kids are very different people, with distinct personalities all their own. The variety in wearable and adorable styles from UMI means I can easily find pairs that reflect who they are.
Every child walks to the beat of their own drum and we think you'll find a shoe at UMI that supports every rhythm, just like we did. Here are a few of our favorite styles for spring.
