Freshly Picked Moccs — Review & Giveaway

May 12, 2014 — 43 Comments

The ladies over at Freshly Picked sent me a pair of their adorable baby moccasins for Kennedy to wear & for me to review. Also, to celebrate Kennedy turning 6 months tomorrow,  they’re throwing in a pair for one of my readers!

I figured the best way for me to hash out my likes and dislikes of these shoes are with a straight forward pro’s and con’s list.

PRO’S AND CON’S AND PRO’S AND CON’S AND PROOOOOOOO’S….Jimmy Fallon, anyone?

Okay, here we go–

PRO’S:

  • 10/10 on the cuteness factor
  • great presentation when they arrive at your door photo
  • big variety of colors/styles
  • made in the USA by an extremely hardworking MOMpreneur (read the story here).  I’m all about supporting homegrown small businesses!
  • high quality leather:  super soft and durable (so far).  They seem to hold up to Kennedy’s desire to chew on them pretty well. fp1
  • durability — following up on the last point, these should last a very long time & can be passed down to our next kids without looking like beat-up hand-me-downs.
  • versatile: can be dressed up (like we did for Easter) or dressed down

  • comfort — obviously I can’t speak for Kennedy, but these shoes appear so comfortable because of the soft sole.  They flex with her every move & don’t dig-in on her whatsoever.

CON’S:

  • the price — at $60 a pair, that’s a steep price for a little bit of leather to cover my kid’s feet.  I’m not sure if I’d buy these myself with that pricetag unless I knew for a fact I was going to have a couple more kids to pass them down to.  But I feel confident that they’d hold up if that were the case.
  • FP claims that they they’ll stay on your child’s feet. Here’s the deal:  Kennedy was right on the border in sizes so I went with the size up since she’ll grow in to them in a matter of weeks.  As they fit right now they’re slightly big and she’s able to kick them off pretty quickly.  The pictures below were taken in a matter of 5 seconds, and if you look closely at the last picture you can see that her heel is out of her left shoe.

    I’m hesitant to put this as a con because they may not be so easily kicked off if they fit her perfectly.  So take this con with a grain of salt.  We’ll see how they do in a month when they fit her perfectly.

 

So that’s it.  The pro’s and con’s of it all.  I have to say that I love these shoes.  I’ve been a fan for a while now, just before I saw Susan on Shark Tank (Alex & Iove this show! It’s our Saturday morning routine to eat a good breakfast and watch the show from the night before on Hulu).

They’re not your traditional baby shoe and perhaps a little too eclectic for some people’s taste.  But for me, I’d take one in every single size & color if I could!

So you want a pair, right?  That’s why you’re still reading…or why you’ve scrolled down to the bottom of the page to find out how to win them, yeah?
