Umi Shoes: Review and Giveaway!

Since Madelyn is such a shoe fan, I am always on the look out for great shoes. Not only great for looks (which is what Madelyn is mostly into right now) but for comfort and function. Umi makes adorable shoes for children, and their shoes are made to last!
From the site:
At Umi, we build real children's shoes. Not floppy leather slipper socks. And not miniature grown-up shoes. We know a lot about growing feet. Front to back. Side to side. Top to bottom. Umi shoes are designed with children's feet in mind. Around here we have some pretty high standards. We craft our shoes from the highest quality nappa and nubuck leather, with carefully constructed lasts. Our manufacturing process includes more than twenty quality control checks to ensure that every pair of shoes meets our standards. The result: Umi shoes are flexible, supportive, built to fit, and go the distance.
I think that the qualtity is superior and they really make great shoes! The leather is soft, the Velcro straps are strong and durable, and the shoes are flexible enough for little walkers. I am excited to see how these shoes last through the miles Madelyn will put on them. I think they will outlast Madelyn's use.
Umi's shoes come in several sizes for baby up to children's sizes. Sizes are in European sizes from infant 17-children size 38. The prices range from $40-$105 and the quality is what you pay for. The shoes are made with nappa and nubuck leather, which makes the shoe last. There are so many styles of shoes for baby, girls and boys with picks from summer shoes, dress shoes, or tennis shoes.
Another bonus about Umi shoes, is they use only non-toxic materials that are built to last. Their drum-dyed leathers are tested for colorfastness and wear-resistance. Umi packages their shoes in recycled materials and uses environmentally sound practices to manage waste. At Umi, making a safe, healthy, earth-friendly product is not trendy...it is who they are.

I can't decide between the geneva and the cayenne shoes. They are both so cute and not too girly.

The Selenia is adorable in blue. I'm so glad they have bigger sizes. So many stores stop with baby sizes. The bigger kid shoes are adorable, though.

I would love to win a pair of the Umi Shoes! I can't decide if I would like to win a pair for my son or daughter! I like the Sail or Treasure Map for my son, and the Enchanted or Paisley for my daughter.
