Last spring, we introduced you to Umi Shoes (read our review here) — a brand that counts Violet Affleck, 2 ½, among its biggest fans. If you liked Umi’s spring/summer shoes you’ll love the new fall/winter line, which is in stores now.
My favorites would have to be Jet ($65), a casual boot for boys with cool sneaker-styling, Sweetgum ($60), a stylish ankle boot for girls with leaf decals, and Puzzle($38), a funky t-strap guaranteed to brighten up even the dreariest ofwinter days. The entire line is colorful and fun, as we’ve come toexpect with Umi, but what I really love is the sturdiness of theseshoes. The boots — in particular — seem like they’ll hold up wellover the cold months ahead and because each pair is easy on/off, chunkywinter socks won’t get in the way.
