Have you ever owned anything and loved it so much that you had to have it twice? There are actually a few things that have made it into my everyday life that way. Guess what? Livie & Luca is one of them. One day when I was much much younger, mommy found these adorable boots online and just had to have them. When they arrived they were even more beautiful than they looked and it was one of my most well worn boots to date. Well when I outgrew them mommy decided that I needed another pair of the exact same boots. Do you know what that means? When something is just so utterly amazing you just gotta have more than one. Now you may think that hey, Madison is just making this up because she got some free shoes to review. Oh no, no, NO! Madison never make up stories and to show you that I’m being 100% honest as usual, mommy just had to pull those shoes out for you. Notice how well worn they are and the two different sizes. As I said before, it’s not very often this happens, so when Livie & Luca offered to send me one of their shoes to review, I was over the moon!
Here was a brand that I already loved and I was going to work with them. How much more awesome does it get? I say it doesn’t get any better than that. Now let’s do a throwback photo of me rocking those boots! Even back then I was fashionable don’t you think?
The hardest decision we ever made was actually trying to figure out what shoe we wanted to highlight. By the way at the moment we are writing up our review they are having the most amazing sale so I would suggest buying a few pairs even in bigger sizes and saving them for later. You bet that’s what we are going to do.
We decided on getting the Knoll Cloud Blue from their summer 2014 collection. Sizes for Livie & Luca are:
Adult Women: 5-10
Can I tell you what I really love about Livie & Luca? Their shoes are made of the softest leather so breaking them in is no problem at all. It seems like they’re already broken in for you making them comfortable right out of the box. That’s not all. Their bold designs and colors are all so beautiful and whimsical that choosing the one you love the most is going to be a challenge.
My Knoll has a beautiful leather upper with a flower textile print. It also has an easy velcro closure making it easy for little ones like myself to put on and off. That is another feature that we love about Livie & Luca. Almost all of their shoes, about 98% of them either come with a hook and loop closure with velcro closure or just velcro only. I have actually only seen one of their shoe that had laces. Their shoes just screams “hey I’m independent, I can do this by myself”. It also has a durable and might I add flexible outsole that you would love.
The collar around the heels are padded giving extra heel support. Now why doesn’t everyone think of that. The insole is breathable and removable and also very soft and cushioned. I can jump and jump and jump without having to worry about corns, bunions and blisters. After all I am much too young to worry about things like that.
Now Livie & Luca isn’t all about money. No they also give back to the community. Partnering with it’s customers and Art for Humanity to facilitate the donation of gently-worn shoes to children in Honduras. Children living in poverty are given possibly their first pair of shoes for school and protection from soil-borne infections caused by walking barefoot. They also pride themselves on “treading lightly” on the earth and incorporates eco-friendly practices wherever possible, such as using lead free leather and non-toxic glues. This commitment to the environment combined with fresh designs has created the magic that is Livie & Luca.
Now that’s a company you just gotta love!
Livie & Luca ships not only to the US and Canada but there is also international shipping as well to other countries around the world. For my international readers that’s very good news. They are available in not just girls but boys and women sizes too. Mommies that’s good news for you too!
Remember there’s a sale currently going on so don’t forget to get you a pair or two or three! Why? Because Madison says so and because Livie & Luca gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!
