LOPA CREATES CHILDREN'S FOOTWEAR THAT STEPS AWAY FROM THE EXPECTED. Balancing art and utility, Lopa was founded in 2019 in Portland, Oregon
by friends Caitlin Shrigley and Hali Boyd. 

After the birth of Caitlin’s child, it became clear that a new type of baby footwear was needed - Lopas. We wanted strong foundations for first steps, style at every stage, and traction that empowered exploration. Each pair of Lopas showcase beautiful fabrics that aren’t too precious to be lived in, youth apparel that doesn’t read as binary,
and a playful approach to refined aesthetics. 

From our family to yours, we offer you our commitment to quality and thank you for inviting Lopa into the milestone moments of your children’s lives.
