Freshly Picked Moccasins

I'm so excited to share this post with you! I am such a fan of "Freshly Picked" moccasins. If you have never heard of them, you are in for a treat!

Freshly Picked is a brand of children's shoes that are hand-sewn in the US, and made out of high quality genuine leather. They have all sorts of colors, and recently launched their own signature "camouflage" print.  I have been following Freshly Picked on Instagram for almost 2 years now, and I can happily say I have been a fan since the beginning. Susan, the owner, was recently featured on the TV show "Shark Tank". Her story and success is very inspiring, especially to us "mompreteneur" type women out there.

Freshly Picked recently sent me a pair of the Prince George moccs (Named after Will & Kate's baby).  It is the perfect shade of blue, that goes with anything from denim to leggings to dress up clothing.

Whats so great about Freshly Picked Moccs? Oh, Let me tell ya...

  • They're ADORABLE!!!
  • They're Handmade 
  • They fit FAT FEET! No cute shoes would fit my son, but these went on so easily!
    • They honestly take 2 seconds to get on with no struggle at all.
  • They're made out of soft leather that is comfortable on your child foot. 
  • They have a soft sole: 
    • Since they have a soft sole, their feet are able to feel the ground more naturally than a hard soled shoe. (Perfect when they start walking)
    • My pediatrician even raved about them, describing how soft soled shoes are much better for your child's foot development so they don't develop "flat feet". Since the leather forms to your child's foot, it is the closest they can get to bare feet. 
      • Flat Feet (Wikipedia): 
        • The appearance of flat feet is normal and common in infants, partly due to "baby fat" which masks the developing arch and partly because the arch has not yet fully developed. The human arch develops in infancy and early childhood as part of normal muscletendonligament and bone growth. Training of the feet, especially by foot gymnastics and going barefoot on varying terrain, can facilitate the formation of arches during childhood, with a developed arch occurring for most by the age of four to six years. Flat arches in children usually become proper arches and high arches while the child progresses through adolescence and into adulthood.
  • The elastic around the ankle makes it so they DON'T FALL OFF!!! (No more taking your child out of his/her stroller to discover one fell off along the way!)
*Tip: I spray my Moccs with Cadillac Leather Protectant spray. Its a water and stain-repellant shield. You can buy it here for $7 from Nordstrom.com. It tells you on the canister what type of leathers you can use it on, so make sure you read the warnings before you start spraying. 
    **Just a personal recommendation.

Here are some pictures of my son in his "Weathered Brown" Freshly Picked moccasins, currently in stock! They are a great color, and go with EVERYTHING!
