The Spring Green #30: Livie & Luca Review

Sunday, May 16, 2010 Posted by Dina N

My kids and I are big fans of the adorable Livie & Luca shoes. Last year, I reviewed a pair of their wonderful Red Fun Dots shoes. I was so impressed by their quality that I bought some Livie & Luca boots. My daughter wore them daily all winter. We've received countless compliments about these shoes from other moms who wanted to know where to get them.

Just in time for spring and summer, Livie & Luca have come up with more "adorable shoes for adorable feet"! We picked the new Red Petal shoes for review. These shoes are made from soft red leather, with beautiful stitching and attention to every detail. They are very comfortable and lightweight, with flexible soles and easy Velcro closure. I love the cut-out detailing in the shape of flower petals! The quality is excellent, and my daughter adores her new shoes. Red Petal come in whole sizes from 4 to 13, and are also available in magenta.

In case you've missed my earlier review, it bears repeating that in addition to making beautiful and quality shoes for kids, this company shows a remarkable sense of social responsibility and commitment to the environment. The Livie & Luca shoes purchased online come in a reusable cloth bag. All shoes are made with non-toxic glue and from remains of high quality leather that would otherwise be discarded. Brochures, business cards and postcards are printed on post-consumer product and use soy ink. The factory conditions in the places where Livie & Luca shoes are manufactured provide for fair and equitable treatment of workers.

Livie & Luca strongly believes in creating a better world for our children. 10% of online sales are donated to charity. Besides, after your kids have outgrown them, you can send back the gently-worn Livie & Luca shoes for donation to a non-profit that coordinates the distribution of shoes for families in need. Livie & Luca has partnered with Art for Humanity to arrange for the delivery of donated children's shoes to low-income families in Honduras. If you donate a pair of kids' shoes, you will receive a coupon for free ground shipping on Livie & Luca shoes.
