Warmer weather, pending vacations, and growing toes call for new shoes for the kids. This season, stock up on unique, whimsical, and high quality pairs of shoes and sandals from Livie & Luca that will coordinate with every spring outfit and keep your kids comfortable through their summer vacation. We at Daily Mom have nothing but the utmost respect for the mother duo that makes Livie & Luca possible, so we make sure our kid’s feet are decked out in nothing but Livie & Luca’s best!
Long Live Livie & Luca
In 2005, Livie & Luca officially launched their first collection of hand-made shoes for boys and girls after a couple years of vision making and selling shoes from the trunks of cars. Today, they appear in retailers nationwide selling top quality footwear that not only makes kid’s feet happy, but makes a difference in the community by spreading joy and giving abundantly to charities.
Spreading joy, growing community, making a difference – this is Livie & Luca.
For the Ladies
As much as little girls love their shoes, they deserve not only designs and styles that appeal to their “fashion” sense, but also shoes that are top-quality, safe, and able to move and grow with them as they explore their world in princess dresses and superwoman capes. In sizes ranging from 4 to 13 and Y1-3, and in a variety of colors, fabrics, and textures, every girl will find her perfect Livie & Luca glass slipper and wear it proudly.
While a white shoe for a little girl might make you cringe, it’s a shoe wardrobe essential for the spring! With all the Easter festivities to enjoy, the flowing sundresses to wear, and the impending weddings to attend, a casual, yet easy-to-dress-up white shoe makes sense, and Livie & Luca’s Ruche is our personal favorite.
This white shimmer leather, MaryJane style shoe is simply sweet and understated with just enough detail and accents to stand out. A Velcro closure makes access easy and allows for a custom fit, the breathable inner sole allows bare feet to be comfortable in the warmer weather, and the light blue microfiber lining makes us think about sipping lemonade on a Charleston front porch during a late summer afternoon.
Oh, and just keep your gal away from post-spring shower mud puddles, and you’ll be good.
If your daughters are anything like ours, then any piece of clothing, pair of shoes, or basically any item they own must be pink. If that’s the case in your household, then getting your little girl to wear this pair of shoes won’t be hard at all. In fact, the challenge you’ll encounter will be convincing her to take these off!
The Petal is Livie & Luca’s signature design, and for good reason. Available in an array of other shades (even though it’s hard to compete with pink), with an easy-to-clean patent leather exterior, natural leather lining, and a Velcro closure for a custom fit, this sandal can be dressed up for spring tea parties or kept casual for playground runs.
For the Gents
It’s true that boys tend to be rougher on their kicks than the ladies, but that doesn’t mean they need to be demoted to wearing unsafe Crocs and heavy duty rain boots all spring and summer. With Livie & Luca’s line of shoes for big and little boys (sizes ranging from 4-13), there are stylish and sturdy options of sneakers and sandals that are built to withstand active lifestyles, while still keeping your dudes comfortable and allowing you to find a pair of shoes that goes with their Sunday suit.
Decent looking sandals for bigger boys can be almost impossible to find, so it’s a breath of fresh air that Livie & Luca designed their Captain sandal in a classic, yet modern way that isn’t overly clunky and boasts a gorgeously neutral vintage gray color.
Naked feet can breathe against the nude microfiber lining and also stay protected with the closed-toe style and durable rubber sole. The silky soft leather exterior only looks better as it ages, and the Velcro closure makes it easy for your independent son to pull these sandals on and off, while also maintaining a perfect fit.
Every little gentleman needs a classy sneaker for those occasions where comfort and durability meet ironed slacks and inside voices. Livie & Luca’s Grip shoe makes it easy to keep your son playground ready while still having him look his best.
In an antiqued vintage blue shade, these leather sneakers feature faux, elastic laces with a handy Velcro closure for a custom fit. Whether he wears his favorite pair of argyle socks or keeps his feet bare, the breathable inner sole with a unique camo star printed lining will keep his toes fresh and his trendiness on par.
For the Brother/Sister Duo
If you are the mom of both a daughter and a son, chances are you don’t dress them in matching outfits on a daily basis. Every once in a while though, either for a special event or just a random Tuesday, you itch to make them actually look like well-behaved and loving siblings. If a whole outfit is asking too much, then just start small; with their shoes! Livie & Luca can help you achieve a subtle matching look for your boy and your girl with their Archie and Skipper shoes.
These two pairs of shoes not only coordinate perfectly with each other, but they are neutral and comfortable enough to wear on a daily basis, no matter what the day brings.
While they may just look like a cute pair of shoes, they contain an extra special feature that will make you smile but leave your kids giddy with excitement! Made for the sunshine, both pairs of shoes contain a “sun print fabric” that magically transforms when the shoe moves from the shade to the sun. The tan thumbprint dots grow orange legs (green legs on the girl’s shoe) when exposed to the light, turning into little bugs. Now that’s a fun shoe!
Your son will love his Archie sneakers that easily slip on without the inconvenience of laces or Velcro, and the breathable inner sole that will keep his feet happy while he’s building sand castles and skipping rocks. The leather and canvas mix of fabrics keep this sneaker as unique as the built in sun print, and we’re sure he’ll be more than happy to “match” his sister.
While your dude is dancing in his Archie’s, your daughter will be smitten with her Skipper’s. This sandal/sneaker is made for the spring and summer months, which is not only evident by the super cool sun print, but by the breathable inner lining, the pearl shimmer leather toe cap and Velcro strap, and the honeycomb rubber sole.
There is nothing we love more than finding high quality, good-for-the-feet shoes for our little ones. And of course if those shoes come in modern, easy-to-love designs and styles, then we’re all the more happy. That’s why Livie & Luca is our go-to footwear brand. Keeping our kids safe, happy, and healthy this season is both our and Livie & Luca’s mission, and we feel good about that!
