Inspired by a pair of hand-made shoes combined with the purpose to spread joy, Mitzi Rivas brought Livie & Luca’s first collection into the world in 2005. When her close friend, Amie Garcia, saw that first pair of shoes she fell in love and wanted to give them to her own children, and to others. As a teacher, Amie strove to make a difference in children’s lives and she knew through these beautiful healthy shoes, that purpose would continue.
Our mission at Livie & Luca has always been based in these values - to spread joy and to make a difference through the creation of comfortable and whimsical shoes, to do meaningful work in which our products positively affect the lives of others. The guiding idea behind Livie & Luca is that we sell more than just shoes and this idea has proven to be the key to our success.
We’ve grown our business as our community. This community is near and far: the employees in our offices and factories, our customers and their children, our neighborhood, our city, our world. The more our community grows, the more opportunity we have to touch lives through our mission of spreading joy. Passing along joy is how we practice our mission of sustainability, because we care about the long-term well being of our community.
Children are near and dear to our hearts and most of our charitable giving focuses on making the world a little better for our upcoming generations.
Spreading joy, growing community, making a difference – this is Livie & Luca.
Livie and Luca UK is owned by Happy Little Soles, a family run business which specialises in barefoot shoes for children. We have always been huge fans of the beautiful Livie and Luca range and have stocked them on our website for a number of years now. In the summer of 2017 we were devastated to hear that the availability of Livie and Luca shoes in the UK was under threat after Livie and Luca UK was put up for sale. We were delighted to be able to step in and reach an agreement, which would enable us to take over the distribution of Livie and Luca shoes in the UK and Europe.
We hope you enjoy the wonderful range of shoes on offer!
