Livie & Luca
shoes are the perfect combination of modern and funky style with a lightweight yet durable, kid-friendly design for pre-walkers to pre-schoolers. Inspired by a pair of beautifully handmade shoes given to her son for his first birthday, designer Mitzi Rivas and co-founder Amie Garcia realized there was a need for adorable, functional, and affordable children's shoes.  After copious research and hard work, Livie & Luca was launched in May 2005, and their kid-approved designs
think elephants, butterflies, soccer, even veggies
are also a hit with mom and dad. 

Livie & Luca's creations incorporate brightly colored leathers, bold designs and whimsical modern touches that capture the playful essence of childhood.  Their comfortable construction allows beginning walkers, toddlers, and pre-schoolers to navigate playgrounds, city streets, and dirt pathways with style and ease. 

Other unique features of Livie & Luca shoes:

  • Individuality:  Every shoe is handmade so no two will be exactly alike, each shoemaker leaves their marking under the strap

  • Kid Comfort:  Made from the softest leather, Livie & Luca shoes are breathable and comfortable

  • Earth Friendly:  Livie & Luca takes steps to minimize their carbon footprint, using reusable cloth bags instead of shoe boxes, going paperless, and other green practices

  • Inspired by Daily Life:  Designs are inspired by children's artwork, the desinger's day-to-day life with her children, and fresh, clean looks

  • Cutting Edge:  The soles of Livie & Luca shoes are mimicked after Astroturf, and the shoes are lightweight (less than 1/3 lb.) yet robust
    and super flexible

  • Giving Back: Livie & Luca makes a practice of donating 10 percent of their proceeds to rotating charities

It's no wonder celebrity moms Angelina Jolie, Marcia Cross,
Kate Winslet, Brooke Shields, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Reese Witherspoon (to name a few) have flipped for Livie & Luca's moccasin-style shoes for their trendy tots.  

Adorable shoes for adorable feet, Livie & Luca shoes are $34.50 to $37.50, available at select boutiques, in-home parties, and at
