PLEASE NOTE: THE GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED – BUT THE REVIEW IS STILL WORTH A GOOD READ =)
If there is one thing my Isabella has been blessed with, it’s a full wardrobe! When I was pregnant I was blessed to find her just about everything she needed to last her for a good 1-2 years. This included all her shoes as well… however, shoes have also been the hardest piece of her wardrobe to deal with! Why? because no matter how cute they all are or how sturdy they are meant to be, they are either too heavy for her (sneakers), too flimsy or they are always falling off (or getting pulled off). For a while we used to call her Cinderella, she was always missing at least 1 shoe. And, usually… one of our 3 dogs would find the second (dropped) shoe… and turn it into a chew toy.
Izzy is SUPER active. She started walking at around 10 months and now at 15 months, she thinks she is a parkour master. Sneakers are great, but they are heavy. Her sandals, are slippery and the open ends easily get caught onto things like rugs, so she falls more. I needed a comfortable, light and durable shoe that would stay on her feet and allow her to run as freely as she would if she was barefoot.
Freshly Picked Moccasins
Along came her first pair of Freshly Picked Moccasins… OMG, we (Izzy and I) are in LOVE! Let me warn you now…it is so hard picking a design…. because they ALL are simply gorgeous!
I purposely ordered the pair about 1 size larger so that Izzy could grow into them. What amazed me, is that even with the shoe being bigger, they still do not flop around, fall off or cause any walking issues. In fact when she is wearing them, she is able to walk, run and climb around more freely.
Just look at the QUALITY! The stitching, the fringe, the leather… all of it… PERFECT. They are even shipped to you in its own little dust bag with the Freshly Picked logo. I was SUPER impressed when these arrived, the quality really is exceptional!
They are GREAT for both indoor and outdoor wear! At home, the park or at the store… these can be worn anywhere! And, you don’t have to worry about losing a shoe while you are out and about (they are literally the only shoes that stay on her feet!).
Izzy literally wears these… every…single…day! She will bring them to me first thing in the morning so I can put them on her. With any other shoe, once she is tired she will yank them off or insist I take them off for her… but, not these! They stay on, and she doesn’t try to take them off…ever. She is very comfortable in them which is a HUGE plus!
- Elastic at the opening makes the shoes easy to put on, easy to take off, and most importantly: they stay on your child’s foot.
- The soft-soled moccs are made with durable, wear-tested leather and are suitable for infants and toddlers alike.
And, did you know….. These soft sole shoes are the best option for your little one and their spine health! According to Dr. Jay Jagannathan, a neurosurgeon :
Freshly Picked soft soled moccasins can help your baby’s feet absorb shock and potentially transmit less shock to the foot, leg and back. In addition, Freshly Picked soft soled moccasins help your baby support his feet, which may provide ankle and arch support without being overly restrictive or uncomfortable.
Where to Find Them:
Freshly Picked moccasins retail for $45-$60.00 and yes, they are worth every penny! I have seen no sign of major wear or tear on Izzy’s pair so far, and as I mentioned… she is a parkour master (lol) so she has definitely put them thru the ringer already… and they are surpassing my expectations! They are also super easy to clean, just use a wipe! (For the leather moccs, that is).
Freshly Picked has actually just released some new designs as well! OMG, I NEED to get these!!! (That Pineapple design is to-die-for) You can check them out for yourself on the Freshly Picked Website (click here) .
