Livie & Luca were selected by Footwear Plus magazine editors and readers as the best shoes for pre-walkers- quite an honor for the mom-run business formed in 2005.

“We’re a company that’s not afraid to take chances and it’s paid off,” said Mitzi Rivas, owner of Livie & Luca. “We’re a group of gals who design from our hearts. Even though we’re the little guys, we’re mighty.”

In addition to their baby and children’s shoes, Livie & Luca plans to launch a shoe for women- stay tuned for their debut!
