It’s time for me to talk about my favorite baby and toddler moccasin company again! That’s right, it’s Freshly Picked. I previously raved about their moccasins when Max was 11 months old. Looking back on that prior review makes me feel incredibly nostalgic – he’s grown so much since then!
Freshly Picked sent a pair for Max the Toddler to try on and I chose the color “Stone Suede.” Honestly, I really, really wanted “Starry Night” (a gorgeous metallic color) but I had to remind myself that the moccs weren’t for me 🙁
I opted for suede because Max already has two leather moccs from Freshly Picked so I wanted to see what their suede was like. I was not disappointed. The suede is thick and feels durable yet remains soft and supple. Their moccs are no longer handmade but the quality and craftsmanship is still impeccable.
The reason I am such a huge fan of Freshly Picked and their soft moccasins is largely because, for babies and toddlers who are learning to walk, moccs do not hinder healthy feet development. Barefoot is best whenever possible. But when they are walking outdoors those tender feet need protection. I think soft moccasins are the next best thing.
