Celebrity Buzz and a First Person Review

As true NYC fashionistas in the making, Sarah Jessica Parker’s daughters have been spotted wearing Umi Shoes. As I cover children’s fashion, I decided to see what all the buzz is about, as I tried a pair and wrote a review. 

Sarah Jessica Parker has always been fashion forward. It’s no surprise that Sarah Jessica Parker ‘s daughters, Tabitha and Marion, are constantly spotted wearing the best trends. Recently, Huffington Post called the girls “the most stylish NYC kids.” As little trendsetters, the twins make a great duo that moms everywhere can look to for advice on how to shop the latest children’s fashion trends. When spotted on the street, Tabitha and Marion wear girly styles, and are always looking very levelheaded and age-appropriate. Some of the best outfits the twins wear have super practical designs, which give the girls room to run and play.


Celebrity Buzz About Umi Shoes: Sarah Jessica Parker

Recently I found the most adorable photos of Sarah Jessica Parker’s girls wearing a cute kids’ shoe brand, Umi Shoes. In the photos, one of the girls wears a pair of red boots with pom poms, the Darena style, which look practical, warm, and trendy. Because the girls are usually spotted walking in NYC, wearing comfortable shoes is a must have for treks across the city. Umi shoes have quite the buzz around them. Other celebrities whose children wear the brand include Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck, Marcia Cross, Kimora Lee Simmons, James Tupper, Candace Cameron and Val Bure, Joely Fisher, Tori Spelling, Shirly Brener, Mila Jovovich, and Kelly Ripa.

Personally, as a mom who follows the latest arts & entertainment news, I was intrigued with the children’s shoe brand and had to learn more. I was excited when the company generously offered to send me a free pair of my choice of shoes for my daughter to try. Trying a pair for free helped inform my writing, but didn’t influence my opinions. As a writer, I greatly appreciated that the marketing division gave me permission to use photos of the celebrity twins wearing the company’s shoes in my article. 


First Person Review of Umi Shoes

My oldest daughter Samantha is very fashion-forward. When choosing a pair of shoes for my mini hipster daughter, I wanted a mix of style and practicality. Samantha is a super girly tomboy, as she loves to play outside in the dirt and enjoys dressing up as a princess. I chose the Pink Connor Little shoes, which are girly and outdoorsy. As I had my daughter try the shoes out, I loved the support and comfortability. The shoes have a practical design to help little ones stay comfortable on long walks.

New, pink tennis shoes make an excellent gift for the holiday season. Pink Connor Little shoes are appropriate year round for kids! Because my daughter tried the shoes out, I can tell how durable the items were. The material used to make the shoes is made to last. Because of the durability, I honestly feel that the shoes are a step up from my daughter’s old pair of tennis shoes.

I plan to have my daughter use her pair for years, so I bought them a little big. My daughter currently wears a 9 and I bought a 10. I didn’t see a half size, but I love stocking up on shoes for future use. The shoes required some loosening of the strap to slide on, so I taught my daughter how to pull the shoes on independently. With a little explaining, my daughter understood how to hold the shoes with her hands and push her feet into the shoes. My daughter is only 3 1/2 years old, so new shoes always require some instruction. Because the shoes are so well padded and secure, some kids may need help getting the shoes on to their feet. Honestly, I’m really happy with the shoes, as the style and comfortability really impressed my daughter and me. My daughter looked comfortable in the shoes, even with a little extra space in the toe. Wholeheartedly I would recommend the shoes for the style and practicality.

I received a free product, but it in no way influenced my opinion.
