Personally, I really love the designs offered by Umi. I think that their designs are simple enough so that you only need a couple of pairs of them for each season and the shoes will match most outfits your kids wear. At the same time, these simply designs are cute enough for any princess and prince.
I know some moms who prefer buying cheaper shoes, but I have also noticed that they have to buy shoes a lot more often because the shoes get worn out more quickly. As such, I think you should just invest in a couple pairs of great quality shoes like Umi -- because in the end, you can either buy several pairs of shoes that are cheaply made, but buy a couple of high quality ones. Spring is here and your kids are most likely in need of some sandals, so make sure you go to Umi and check out their nice selection of shoes.
