"When we start the school year all the kids look really prim and proper and the shoes are all shiny and brand new…in the spring everything looks a little different but I've noticed that Umi shoes are more long-lasting..."

-Maheen, Umi Mom and Kindergarten Teacher

Thoughtful Shoes For Thoughtful Souls...

When it comes to quality, Umi doesn’t cut corners. Making our children’s shoes, we use only the softest, drum-dyed leathers and other non-toxic, environmentally friendly natural materials. We test each and every design extensively for durability and safety. And we ship our shoes in 100% recycled packaging. At Umi we care about protecting our children and our planet. Just like you.
