We have a family tradition when it comes to first shoes – both Angus & Winifred had Livie & Luca elephants and, it is now time for (Tiny Baby) Miles to follow in their footsteps. Angus had navy ones, Win had red ones, and this season Livie & Luca have produced them in a brown colour.
They arrived this weekend, and are everything I expect of Livie & Luca shoes. They came in a re-usable box with handles (which all my children have loved playing with when their shoes arrived). Miles is no exception and, it takes us a while to get to see the shoes inside because he disappeared with his “suitcase”.
The shoe upper is made from a buttery soft leather and has cushioned padding around the heel. The soles are incredibly flexible and the toe box is roomy for precious toes. And look at that cute elephant cut-out, complete with tusks! I remember from Angus’ & Winifred’s days in their elephants I was stopped so many times to be told: “I love those shoes! Where are they from?”
I ordered these from Phil at Bear-Foot Shoes. He offers free UK delivery on all orders (yippee) and has some helpful sizing information on his website. Bear-Foot stock Livie & Luca, Bobux, Bogs and Sew Heart Felt brands. Phil feels passionate about the barefoot philosophy. He is himself a barefoot runner, and set up Bear-Foot after experiencing difficulty sourcing shoes for his own children.
Now, those of you active on the Natural Mamas forum know I don’t like to let an opportunity pass me by… so I asked Phil if he would like to run a giveaway with Natural Mamas. He said yes! (Thanks Phil).
The winner will get to choose a pair of shoes from Bear-Foot in their choice of style and size, subject to what Phil has in stock.
He is also offering a special discount code worth 20% off full priced stock to Natural Mamas – valid on purchases until midnight on 20 May 2016. Just use code NMSPRING20 when you checkout. Why not post a comment below or on the Forum showing us which shoes you used your discount on?
