A Boot Story
For 15 years we have been making children's boots alongside our shoes. We have come up with some pretty joyful designs… a veggie boot displaying a turnip and a mushroom, a woodland boot with a gnome dancing across the side, even a tape measure boot!
You can see we’ve always touched each boot design with whimsical Livie & Luca details and we’ve also dedicated ourselves to making them perfectly functional and comfortable. Over the last 15 years, we’ve used your customer feedback to co-design each new collection and with that evolved knowledge we’ve created a product that we believe is the healthiest shoe for your child’s foot.
What has made our boots superior over their evolution?
-It’s the use of soft, natural, breathable leather inside and outside of the boot
-it’s a flexible and protective outsole
-it’s the biometrically-designed insole crafted for a growing foot
-it’s easy to access, with the just-right positioning of quality zippers and straps.
This fall 2019 season several favorites are back along with a few precious new designs.
Say hello to Wink, a brand new beautiful Chelsea boot silhouette for girls in delicious sparkle, glitter and shine. The Chelsea boot was first made by Queen Victoria’s shoemaker in the 1840’s. They were mainly used for riding then and further popularized by British rockers of the ’50s and ’60s. Our Wink is versatile in style - think jeans or a party dress - and practical in design: easy on and off with elastic on the ankle and a zipper on the inside. Wink comes in Gold Shimmer and Silver Metallic.
Our Boho-inspired Sonoma boot is back in all her comfy coziness! This boot has a lovely soft shearling on the inside and a free-spirited fringe and braid on the side, a nod to the equestrian influence. She’s super easy to pull on and off with a top-to-base zipper. This season we’ve added a leather-based bottom to the Butterscotch colorway, a new neutral!
The timeless Tiempo boot is back with her distinctive embossed leather clock buttons, so easy to match with fall outfits and holiday sparkle. Tiempo evolved from the Marcha boot that had metal clock buttons marching up her side, a tribute to the ephemeral and whimsical nature of time... We have also put the leather base on the Tiempo boot in Mocha and she comes in Taupe and Black.
Hearing a need for a boys’ boot, fall 2019 offers the handsome, practical, and highly matchable little artist boot, Pollock. With a single wide hook-and-look strap for easy on and off, this fellow makes everyday dressing effortless and stylish. Pollock in Gray has a bright green heel tab and Pollock in Mocha has a bright orange heel tab, in case you should need to pick out your little one from across the playground!
For Babies we introduce the darling Fleur in Gold Shimmer and Desert Rose. Fleur offers a single wide hook-and-loop closure that make for easy on and off and features a vintage look with scalloping and perforations.Fleur in Gold Shimmer
Say hello again to sweet Benny, our classic take on the spat boot. Benny is a fall/winter bootie that you can pop on with any romper or onesie. For boys or girls, Benny is an all-purpose pleaser!
All our fall 2019 boots stand upon the shoulders of our boots past. We love looking back and revising our work based on the feedback we get from our community - it's an honor to feel like every shoe at L&L is a collaboration. See below for a few pics of past boots that have contributed to our understanding of bootmaking and helped us to continue to craft boots that honor the fanciful lifestyle of a child and pay close attention to their developing gait and growing feet!
