I remember the excitement of picking out my '??back to school'? shoes very clearly. The smell of the new leather. The way they were so perfect, without a scratch. How my toes almost touched the top. Nowadays, I'??m just as excited picking out my daughter'??s shoes for school. My four-year-old definitely has to approve of my choice, but my two-year-old gives me free reign.
For both of my girls, I love Umi Shoes. They'??re trendy enough to spark the imagination of my purplicious princess and they'??re cool enough for the woman who has to put them on her daughter's feet several times a day. (Yes, I think she should be putting her own shoes on, by now, too.) They're also durable enough to look great even after my daughters outgrow them.
Cassie is an updated Mary Jane shoe for big girls. Cassie is available in seven colors, leather and patent leather, including purple (Guess which one we got?) and made from the softest, high-quality leather. Adjustable hook and loop closure hide behind the decorative buckle.
My absolute favorite is the Bluet shoes for little girls. With a sweet flower on the toe, hearts across the front and a butterfly on the side, they are whimsical and sweet without being over-the-top girly. Available in four colors with contrasting stitching.
Big boys will love the Carrson suede shoes. They will look and feel like big boys in these comfy, stylish shoes and you'll feel a little sad about that! They're also as comfortable as sneakers and will play hard right along with them.
For little boys, the Bodi suede shoes are the ultimate in coolness. Available in four colors, your little boy will look masculine even if he's drinking from a pink sippy cup. (I know, it happens.)
Shop Umi Shoes and see all their new shoes for fall.
