Giveaways and Reviews

UMI Back to School Giveaway!

Every year I say the same thing – I love the warm carefree summer months but the one allure of the fall that I love is shopping for back to school clothes!  This year, Nevaeh, my almost 4 year old, is starting Preschool so I have two kids to shop for (eeeee!)

Keeping in mind our budget, I have to look for items that are good quality and will last the kids the school year.  A deal simply is not a deal if the item falls apart within the first few months at school.

Whenever people ask me about shoe brands that “hold-up” so to speak, UMI is at the top of that list.  I’ve always had great experiences with UMI shoes that we’ve reviewed over the years.

While UMI is available in stores across Canada and the US, many of us can only find them online (or, in many cases, the best selection is online!)  Sometimes shopping for shoes online can be difficult, especially when you’re unsure if a brand fits big or small.  What I love about UMI is that they offer customers a Size Chart on the site AND a downloadable size chart that you can use to accurately measure your child’s feet!

I’m really glad we did this for her fall shoes because I was surprised by how much her feet had grown since the spring!  A note, make sure you check your printer settings before printing the chart and print it at 100% (sometimes things print scaled to the size of the page.)

We decided on these oh so fashionable black Radiant boots from UMI for fall and winter for Nevaeh.  Great with leggings or skirts, I thought the black color would be best for matching her outfits.  Also available in cocoa and red, the Radiant boots feature a back-zip and cushioned cozy fit.  The Radiant boot from UMI can be purchased directly from the site for $95 with free shipping and returns within the US (Canadian orders can be placed via phone and are shipped using FedEx – charges apply.)
