I love to promote companies that are truly eco-friendly. We need to raise awareness and buy green whenever possible! Here are 3 great kid shoes companies that I adore (in no particular order).
Why Chose Umi?
Thoughtful Shoes For Thoughtful Souls…
When it comes to quality, Umi doesn’t cut corners. Making their children’s shoes, they use only the softest, drum-dyed leathers and other non-toxic, environmentally friendly natural materials. They test each and every design extensively for durability and safety. And they ship their shoes in 100% recycled packaging. At Umi they care about protecting our children and our planet.
Why Chose Keen?
Through KEEN’s Hybrid.Care giving program, they work with nonprofit partners to make a difference in the places we love now and for future generations.
This year they helped:
- Permanently protect 13 million acres of land
- Teach Leave No Trace principles to more than 1,000,000 people
- Stop 9 proposed hydropower dams in the US
- Remove nearly 40 tons of trash from our nation’s waterways

Healthy Foot Development
pediped Originals, Grip ‘n’ Go, and Flex have been officially recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) as being beneficial for children’s growing feet.
