Soft Soled, Leather, Made in the USA Moccasins by Freshly Picked (Review with Giveaway, Ends 05/30/14, Worldwide)

Disclosure: We received a free pair of moccasins in exchange for our honest opinion about them.
Susan Petersen started making baby moccasins in 2009 after becoming frustrated by the lack of well-designed baby shoes. Using her second child, Gus, as a mocc-tester, and a bag of scrap leather she picked up at a yard sale, she began experimenting with designs. Working at her kitchen table, on a shoestring budget, Susan persisted through some disastrous attempts until she had created a pair of moccasins that not only looked adorable on Gus’ chubby little feet, but stayed on his feet as well.

Since then the moccasins have gone through about six design changes. Each change has perfected the look and the fit of the soft-soled shoe. The moccasins you purchase today are durable, well designed, and most importantly: stay on your child’s foot.
Each pair of moccasins, whether being shipped to the rich and famous (or at least their kids), or shipped across town, is made with care, perfection and a love for the little feet they are intended for. We sincerely hope you enjoy our product!
I don't know which of us loves little shoes more, Daniella or me. We both love to match shoes not only to her outfit, but also to each other, if possible! Daniella currently has six pairs of shoes and three of them are soft soled. I think it's really important that her small, growing feet have the ability to move freely and have minimal sole.
Daniella really likes her moccasins. I love that they are gender neutral (my regular readers know how much I love anything gender neutral!), but also a neutral color to mix and match easily with her outfits. 
Daniella likes feeling like a big girl and being able to put her moccasins on all by herself! She doesn't need to have someone tie her laces or help her with a strap that came out. She just needs to slip her foot inside!
She likes that they keep her toes safe (she recently had an owie toe from riding her new balance bike without any shoes on.)  She insisted on wearing her Freshly Picked moccasins when she visited her cousins for Easter and wanted to jump on their trampoline.
I think they are simply adorable. We have received many compliments on them and frequently get asked where we got them from. 
I love how durable they are. She has been wearing her moccasins for about three months now and the sole is barely showing any wear!
With over thirty varieties of moccasin colors and styles to choose from in infant and toddler sizes 1-10, Freshly Picked moccasins are sure to become a favorite! If there is a particular color that grabs your eye, snag it while you can! Some colors are limited edition.
I especially love that each pair is handmade right here in the USA!
Oh, and I have been told a secret that I can share with you!!! VERY SOON, Freshly Picked is releasing NEON colored moccasins!!!
