Little Lulu's

We are a small family run brand of luxury leather baby shoes. Designed in the UK and handmade in Italy. Big people trends for little people's feet.

Little Lulu’s is a brand of leather baby shoes professionally designed in Sheffield by Catriona and handmade in Italy from the finest eco-friendly nappa leather. These little works of art are completely wearable. They come with a dust bag and presentation box, which together makes a precious keepsake for years to come.

Designed for your little one's feet, Little Lulu’s are comfortable, flexible and offer support while also looking cute and stylish. Big people trends for little people’s feet. They are all pre-walkers. Sizes come in 16, 18 and 20, which roughly equates to 0-6 months, 6-12 months and 12-18 months but all babies vary. Please see the size chart for measurements.

Each shoe has been made with the utmost care and attention. In between the lining and the upper there is a soft padded layer, which adds to the buttery texture and gives babies extra comfort. The stitching is as refined as embroidery with no imperfections, maintaining the soft feel of the shoes on baby’s foot.

Our Awards

We are an award winning British brand with high quality Italian craftsmanship.

Catriona Alfaham began working on Little Lulu's after the birth of her daughter, Layla. After years of working in the fashion industry as a footwear and accessory designer she yearned to go it alone and do something for herself. Having Layla gave her the confidence to pursue her dream.

Initially Catriona planned to make the shoes herself but she knew she wanted a kind of quality and craftsmanship that was more than she could produce herself so she began looking for a factory in the UK and Europe. When she found the Italian atelier who now produce the shoes she knew she had struck gold. Their 30 years of experience is evident in the beautiful make up of the shoes.

When she launched the brand at a childrenswear trade event, Bubble London she was thrilled to win their "Rising Star" award. Industry insiders had seen something special in the brand and could see it would go far. Little Lulu's is still growing and is stocked worldwide in the UK, USA, China, Dubai, Australia and New Zealand

  • "I bought a pair of these gorgeous little tan desert boots for my 8 month old grandson’s Baptism day. They are just great! Beautifully soft suede, stylish, with a zingy wee contrasting green stripe down the back, and a great fit! They arrived in good time, perfectly as described, and were beautifully presented in a little lulu’s bag and see-through box. My daughter was thrilled with the gift, and baby Gus looked so smart in them, in all the photos of his special day. They were greatly admired! ??"

"These ultra cute white leather trainers, from a small independent UK brand run by Sheffield mum Catriona Alfaham, are made of the softest Italian leather and jazzed up with multi-coloured laces. Our tester enjoyed showing them off as she cavorted haphazardly around the place, taking her first steps. These are ideal for babies learning to walk who are not quite ready for harder soles because the whole shoe is made of soft nappa leather, handmade in an Italian factory...."
