Eco-Friendly | Vegetable Tanned | Chrome Free Lex & Liv Footwear is a stylish line of American handmade, soft-soled, leather children's shoes. Featuring an elasticized, overlapping design, they are easy to get on but difficult for babies to remove. They offer protection to delicate feet, while encouraging the free range of motion and balance that develops from walking barefoot and unrestricted. To maximize comfort, only the soft suede portion of the leather comes in contact with baby's heel. And rather than relying on the leather to stretch into shape, Lex & Liv moccasins are cut to follow the foot's natural form, enabling the leather to stretch evenly across the line of the toes, extending the wearability of the shoe. 

With a background in Architecture and a strong affinity for modern children's decor, founder and designer Katerina Buscemi made the   unexpected, yet welcome transition to handmade children's footwear when she was unable to find non-toxic, chrome-free leather baby moccasins in the American marketplace.  She sought out the perfect leather, tanned and dyed using only the purest vegetable ingredients and found it in Germany. All of the moccasins are crafted by hand in their Rochester, New York studio using the finest German chrome-free, vegetable-tanned cowhide leather. Each pair comes specially packaged in an organic cotton bag that they hand make in the USA.
