Umi Shoes Back To School GIVEAWAY!

Umi Pilot
Yes, I realize that back to school started a month ago, however, it's taken me an entire month just to catch my breath and get used to new routines for two children, a new school for one, a new classroom for the other, to fill out forms, permission slips, print out the lunch menus and learn how to correctly pronounce the name of the teacher that someone just informed me I've been saying wrong for four weeks (my bad).

Luckily for me, I've got Umi Shoes on my size. I've reviewed Umi shoes multiple times before on The Full Mommy and you can expect to read about them again here because they are my go-to shoes for both of my boys. I don't even have to think about it: They get a pair in the spring and another in the fall. I know the quality is consistent, the styles are hip and fun, they are affordable and I know they will last the entire season. As crazy as back to school month has been for me, Umi helped me tremendously by being there and making it easy to check NEW SHOES off my list. I so appreciate having a brand that can do that for me.

I'd like to do the same for you, because Umi has generously offered a pair of shoes for a lucky Binkytowne reader. If you would like a pair of Umi's for your favorite little feet here's what you need to do:

1) Comment here and make sure you leave your email address!
2) Visit Umi's Facebook page and leave a comment there as well.
3) Think about which shoes you want if you win.

Your choices for the giveaway include:

The Orchid for Girls, in pink or black OR The Tiberius lo in chocolate:

Umi sent me a pair of the Pilot shoes for boys (seen above) and they are perfect. They are casual enough for jeans, but well made enough to look nice with khakis or cords. Of course, my two year old doesn't care about that. He only cares that they feel good and enable him to run fast. They do both.

You can visit the Umi website to see all of the cool options for fall and winter and right now shipping is free with any order of $50.00 or more.

I'll pick a winner on October 15th. One comment per person please and GOOD LUCK!

Thank you to Umi for providing a pair of Pilot shoes:
Full disclosure, I buy 3-4 pairs of Umi shoes every year and I wish they made MaryJanes for adults. 


  1. I love these for a little boy! I have two, so I'd have to decide who would get the new shoes. I can't remember exactly how I found it, but I really like your blog. I live in the North Shore area too (Fox Point).

  2. The orchids are great! I love that the shoes are girly but still comfy and good for little feet. I used to live in Madison but am now in NC, and I can't for the life of me remember how I ever stumbled onto your blog in the first place, ages ago!

  3. Well, my son would love the Pilots just because they are called "Pilots"!

  4. I love me some pilots (I even drive one). The question is--if I win, to which one of my two boys will the shoes go? Oh well, we'll cross that bridge if/when we get there. Glad you are back to reviewing stuff--I've always loved getting your opinion. no longer an option at g mail

  5. My son needs a new pair of shoes for fall/winter. The Pilots are so cute and would go with everything.

    I too couldn't give up the reviews! My kids are so used to getting new DVD's to watch that I just couldn't stop. My son needs his Thomas fix!

  6. I love these shoes, thanks for the chance at entering! I wrote on umi's facebook wall. Just found your blog too!!

  7. Ooo! Am I too late? I'd love a pair of shoes for my little guy. :o)
