Umi is one of my favorite brands in kids' shoes. They create fashionable, comfortable and high-quality shoes for kids and only for kids. They specialize in kids' shoes that look smart and are comfortable, so if you aren't familiar with this brand, let me and my trusty Test Drivers introduce you!

Meet the Test Drivers

For Test Driver 2009, Umi had 3 girl Test Drivers:

First Impressions

None of the 3 Test Drivers had ever tried Umi shoes before, so they were all excited to test out something new. What were their first impressions?

Kailey wanted to put them on straight out of the box. Her mom said that she absolutely loved them.

Jenna loved that her Umi girls' shoes look like traditional school shoes, but are built more like a flexible sneaker, so they look great at school, but function on the playground as well.

Kayla's mom said, " She loves them. She loves the colors a perfect pink and black combo and she really loved the fact that they were velcro closure."

Style File

Umi girls' shoes are oh-la-la stylish! They have a huge selection of fashionable girls' shoes, so there's something for everyone.

Kailey and her mom both like the style and look of the shoes. Kailey's mom said that they often buy Mary Jane style shoes and the Umi shoes had a beautiful, floral design that makes them look special.

Jenna's mom reported, "They are versatile and match many outfits and this fits the bill perfectly, with a intricate little design around them that's fashionable and not overbearing."

Kayla's mom said, "These shoes are very extremely stylish, they ADORABLE! They will complement just about any outfit for play or dress."

The Comfort Report

Kailey said that her new Umi shoes are "extremely comfortable."

Jenna's mom said that overall Jenna's Umi shoes are comfortable, flexible and padded, but they rub at the back of Jenna's heel. She thinks once Jenna wears them a bit more, they will break in.

Kayla is my "Princess and the Pea" when it comes to shoes. She has very sensitive little feet and is really picky with shoes. Her mom said, "They are by far one of the most comfortable shoes she owns. She did not complain once while wearing them. She said they were "very, very, very soft". That is because the lining is padded extremely well for a perfect comfort!"
