Best Locally Handmade Baby Shoes

Livie & Luca

Face it: When it comes to cool kids' shoes, big-box stores just don't have style. As an antidote, Albany-based Livie & Luca offers handmade kicks for the toddler set through local shops and online. The shoes are "green," made of high-quality leather remnants that would otherwise be discarded, and when the kid inevitably grows out of them parents can send them on to Livie & Luca partner Art for Humanity, which donates used children's shoes to low-income families in Honduras (donors receive a coupon from L&L for free ground shipping on the next pair). But best of all, these diminutive designs come in patterns that make Mommy jealous: crossovers with a tiny silk-screened girl lolling on the beach; classic Mary Janes with appliquéd birds, elephants, or polka dots; and orange "London" boots reminiscent of Ziggy Stardust. For fun and funky East Bay kids, these shoes will definitely fit.
