Hailing from the UK, the kids’ footwear label Livie & Luca specializes in making “adorable shoes for adorable feet.” Actually, make that adorable <I>and socially conscious</i> shoes: company founders Mitzi Rivas and Amie Garcia strive to make their soft leather slippers as eco-friendly as possible, and donate 10 percent of their online sales to charity. Inspired by nature, Livie & Luca’s playful infant and toddler kicks include petal-shaped Mary Janes, unisex slip-ons with elephants’ faces on the fronts, “blossom” T-strap shoes embellished with hand-cut suede flowers, and floral-print “Ferris Kiku” flats. You can also find chic little “London” booties with decorative button appliqués and funky cowboy boots. Cushioned leather insoles and Velcro closures make Livie & Luca’s bold designs comfy and convenient.
