Baby shoes are somewhat of an oxymoron if you ask me. There are many cute baby shoes out there like Nikes and Sperries, but what the shoe companies do not tell you is that they will likely fall off within the first ten minutes of babies wearing them. Freshly Picked Moccasins are the only shoes I suggest for every baby shower, birthday, Easter, and Christmas gifts you buy for all of your littles and their friends, girls and boys. No matter who the recipients are, they will love these moccs and wear them until their footprints are imprinted into the bottom of their pair.
I never seen a pair of FP moccs I did not love, and everywhere we go while the kids have theirs on, everyone gushes about how cute these shoes are. They are soft-soled which actually helps walkers keep their balance better and prevents crawlers from having to pull around a heavy shoe. These are the only shoes I have ever been able to keep my kids from pulling off, and they never fall off when they’re running around. The high-quality leather used by Freshly Picked is so much nicer than any other knock-off moccs. If they get dirty, you can wipe them down, and they look brand new.
Harper and Nolan both have an extensive collection, but, with the release of the Utah collection, I had to get them a few more pair. I am really digging the Beehive State, Timp and Salt Flats colors from the collection because they are my favorite neutrals and perfect to pair with spring and summer clothes for boys and girls. I also like the moccasins that are bright pops of color like the Aruba, Cherry and Salt Water Taffy! When choosing a pop of color over a neutral, I suggest doing so after you have bought that season’s clothes (or most of them) so you can get a pair to coordinate with more pieces and outfits.
$60 might seem like a lot to spend on a pair of shoes for babies or toddlers, BUT if you buy a pair you can color coordinate with a lot of their wardrobe and is a half size larger than their foot, the leather has such a nice quality you can get a lot of wear out of them, pass them down to your next kids, or resell them online. Freshly Picked also has sales every few months, and at those times, you can get moccs for $45. I tend to buy a neutral pair for the kids and then during the sales get more moccasins in larger sizes so the kids can wear them as they grow. Freshly Picked recently came out with crib moccasins for newborns with a price point of $45. I am itching to get a pair for some friends who are about to welcome their new baby and maybe start stock piling for our future babies’ mocc collections.
