Livie & Luca shoes are designed for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. Soft leather baby shoes come in four sizes, 0-6, 6-12, 12-18 and 18-24 months; all flexible-soled shoes fit sizes UK 3-9, and many go up to a UK 12. All shoes (except the elasticated slip-ons) are fastened with a secure velcro strap, for easy on and off, and every pair is made from signature Livie & Luca leather, which is soft to the touch and gentle on little feet.
Livieandluca.co.uk orders are processed in UK sizing, however, these gorgeous Californian shoes will arrive with the US sizing on the sole, so please don’t let this confuse you! For example, if you purchased a UK size 7 the size on the sole will state a US 8.
Why are flexible-soled shoes best for children?
Livie & Luca believes that flexible-soled shoes are best for children, and so do the experts. Podiatrists are now advising that “barefoot is best”, particularly for children’s feet, with big global brands such as Nike championing the revolution with innovative trainers designed to mimic running barefoot.
Barefoot shoes are fast becoming the recommended way to best support, and protect, your children’s feet when they need it most. Livie & Luca’s flexible, durable soles replicate barefoot walking, and wider toe boxes means there is plenty of room for your child’s toes to spread out. Livie & Luca only uses the softest breathable leather, too, for healthy, happy feet.
