Whether you're looking for adorable crib shoes or stylish footwear for a new walker, I can't recommend Freshly Picked moccasins highly enough!! While they do come with a fairly steep price point, you should know that in the world of baby shoes you do get what you pay for, and with Freshly Picked you're getting top quality - we're talking durable 100% genuine cow hide leather with elastic that comfortably keeps them on little one's feet, and a company that was literally founded by a mom at her kitchen table! We're also talking a bazillion amazingly adorable designs!!! I mean, come on, get a load of these:
And for those who want to get their little one's into the spirit for the Games in Rio this summer...
The biggest problem with Freshly Picked? Picking out just one pair... I mean, talk about a dilemma!!!! I must have spent at least an hour trying to pick out a set for my 9 month old twins. Since I was only getting one style, it needed to be something that could go with any outfit, right? I eventually went with Platinum, and I'm seriously loving them! More silver in some lighting and more gold in other lighting, they're shiny and simply spectacular!!
Freshly Picked moccasins are super soft, and it seems my girls might add "pretty tasty" as well - ha!! The elastic makes them easy to get on and off even the chubbiest of baby feet.
Ordering and opening up my girls' first pair got me all nostalgic for when their big bro got his first FP moccasins 2 years ago!! That time around I measured and rounded WAY too far up (I was seriously at least 2 or 3 sizes off, which is surprising since they make it pretty easy with this sizing chart!). I did much better this time - I got probably a size too large but that means they'll fit my girls for that much longer! I call it a win :)
The bottoms are just as soft and smooth as the tops of the shoes, which means they're not especially grippy and not padded at all. This can be seen as a good or bad thing. They're definitely not the shoes to send your toddler running around on gravel in, to be sure. But the thin bottoms mean that they are great for new walkers learning how to maneuver around and keep their balance.
Freshly Picked has also recently come out with a "Hard Sole" line (sizes 7-13) which is the next step for kids needing more of a proper shoe with support and protection rather than the slipper-esque soft soled moccasin.
So, to recap, they're absolutely adorable, comfortable, practical, and one of the hottest and most sought after brand of footwear for babies and toddlers. The soft-sole line comes in sizes 0 (about 0-3 months) - 9 (about 4.5 years) and a TON of designs and colors for boys and girls alike! And now, for the moment you've all been waiting for, here is your chance to...
