Freshly Picked Moccasins Review


Freshly Picked was started in 2009 when Susan Petersen stated making baby moccasins because she became frustrated by the lack of well-designed baby shoes. Her second child, Gus, was her mocc-tester and a she used a bag of leather scraps that she picked up at a yard sale, this began her experimenting with her designs. She worked at her kitchen table and persisted through some disastrous attempts until she created a pair of moccasins that not only looked adorable on Gus' chubby feet, but that also stayed on his feet. Over the past almost five years, she her moccasins have gone through about six design changes. These changes were to perfect the look and sift of the moccasins. All of Freshly Picked moccasins are made in the USA and each pair of moccasins are made with care, perfection and a love for the little feet they are intended for.

Ebony Moccasins & I <3 moccs="" t-shirt="">

We received this awesome package from Freshly Picked! Size 7 Ebony Moccasins ($60ARV) and nice drawstring bag that they came in, 2 t-shirts ($17/ea ARV) one for Cade and one for Ezio, a bunch of temporary tattoos and pins! Freshly Picked moccasins are available in sizes 1 through 10. Cade wears a size 11, however after receiving Ezio's moccasins I think a 10 would have fit Cade, but that's okay. Freshly Picked was nice enough to send Cade a t-shirt, tattoos and a pin as well as Ezio. I love these t-shirts on the boys, they look great with sweats, jeans and even just a diaper and moccasins! Who knew? 


Ezio leaned towards the left right as I tried taking a picture of him and Cade both wearing their t-shirts and then Cade ran off to play. Anyhow, back to the moccasins. These moccasins are made of 100% Genuine Leather and handmade right here in the USA. These moccasins are made with a unique design with elastic at the opening, helping for ease of putting the moccasins on as well as taking off and the elastic also helps them stay on your child's feet. They are soft-soled, which is perfect for new walkers to keep their feet warm and protected, but to also allow proper stepping and walking. We didn't put shoes on our children until they were walking for SEVERAL months. The durable soft-sole of these shoes are suitable for babies and toddlers alike.

These gorgeous moccs have been featured in Parenting Magazine, IN TOUCH, US weekly, People.com, Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Kim Take New York. 

Ezio usually takes his shoes and socks off, however he loves wearing his moccasins! I have to say he leaves these on the most, which is awesome since we are in our cold WI winter right now. The moccasins come as a pair of universal feet and they form to your baby or child's feet. Ezio's are already forming to his feet, however that doesn't mean they will create any issues with his feet or how he walks as if you were to put tennis shoes on the wrong feet all the time. I love when he brings me his moccasins because it reassures me that he loves them. The elastic in the ankle of the moccasin make is so easy to put them on and helps keep them on, but it's not too tight and all of the elastic is covered by 100% genuine leather so there is no irritation to baby's skin. Unlike other soft-soled baby shoes with the elastic in the ankles, these do not leave any marks or cause discomfort. The 100% genuine leather is thicker and more cushiony then those really thin fabrics. I want a pair of Freshly Picked moccasins for myself!!
