Freshly Picked - Competition - Moccasins

Hello again! So I see I haven’t chased you off. Good thing too, because I am going to chat about a trend on the rise here, which is children’s moccasins!

I wasn’t always on board with the whole trend. Honestly, Grayson is so rough with his shoes I am surprised that they don’t explode on his feet. When the original company, Freshly Picked, starting making the rounds, I was intrigued, at the very least. Made of genuine leather in the USA, I had to admit they were cute, but how could they stand up to a tornado of a toddler? 

Well, I bought a pair in the color Mint, thinking that they would be at least cute in the photographer stylist point of view. I was WRONG. Not only are they perfect for shoots, but they are absolutely WONDERFUL!!! The color is bright, the sizing is wonderful, and even though Grayson had hesitation in the first few seconds (eeek change!) he was hooked! 

I had to test them outside of course. We went to the gym, the stores, the sidewalk, the beach, everywhere, and they held up! He was comfortable, and he didn’t even try to throw them off his feet (which he sometimes does with other shoes). Not that he could, because of their unique design. 

What I like about them most is that the company is run by, and the shoes designed by a regular mom named Susan Petersen. She knew the needs of her children, and designed that way. She’s very inspiring! 

The most sentimental part of these moccs (yes theres a sentimental part) is that after some wear, my son’s foot imprint is in the sole. It’s like having his footprint forever that size, without having to use inkpads, or to even beg him to sit still for me. 

All of that was the reason I received a second pair in Butterscotch. Not only does he look super cool, but I get more footprints to hold on to while his little feet grow so fast. Hey, the compliments help too. :)
