Freshly Picked For Your New Walker [and a Giveaway!]

I remember when I was pregnant with Jackson, I just swooned over all of the little baby shoes out there. They were so cute, I couldn't wait for my little guy to wear them. I was gifted some very nice pairs of shoes at showers and after he was born, but then reality hit. Babies hate putting shoes on. And not only do they hate putting shoes on, but good luck keeping them on those precious little feet! I was continually baffled by how hard it was to get the darn things on, yet my teeny little baby could kick them off in a matter of seconds with no issues whatsoever.
Needless to say, my excitement was quickly put aside and more often than not I opted for my baby to go barefoot. And that worked for a little while, because, as many of you may know, newborn babies don't walk. So we wore lots of thick socks and called it good until he started walking the following summer. By then, it was somewhat easier to keep shoes on his feet. Somewhat.
With Lincoln, shoes were one of the last items on my list of things to buy. I knew from experience that baby shoes were just a pain, and while they were cute, they just weren't worth the hassle. Anything with laces, or even Velcro, basically gets a quick glance before I immediately move onto something more practical.
Enter baby moccasins. These little shoes are quite the craze right now, and with good reason. The elastic band and functional design make them easy to put on, and they also stay on. Freshly Picked is where the trend all began, and trust me when I say that they do moccasins, and they do them right.
These adorable moccs slip on easily, and they stay on. After trying numerous pairs of shoes from a number of different brands and price points, I can tell you that the quality on these is impeccable. The leather is soft and giving, and they are truly a step above the rest. As we are entering the early stages of standing and walking, these shoes are absolutely perfect. We went with a classic color, and I am so glad that we did. They match just about anything, and can be dressed up or down. Perfect for pairing with his Easter outfit, but also great for afternoons at the park. If you are looking for options with a little bit more personality, though, the rainbow dots or B-A-N-A-N-A-S are about the most precious little things I have ever seen! Okay, all of their moccs are adorable. I do not think there is a single pair that doesn't have me swooning. 
Now for the fun part. I am excited to be giving away a pair of Freshly Picked moccasins to one lucky winner!** Enter with the options below, and tell me why you would love a pair of Freshly Picked moccasins for your little one! The giveaway is open through Saturday, and I will announce the winner next Monday!

  1. I didn't/don't have these for the boys and would LOVE to try them for Knox. Same here: after the second kid, you just know baby shoes are basically impractical, and homeboy try to pull his socks off every second he gets...especially in the car.

  4. Since we live in the south and it's warm most of the year, our babies didn't really wear shoes for the first year of their lives. We just kept them in socks if it was chilly. And then both of them are extremely flat-footed so we had to go the Stride Rite route to help them walk. I have always loved these mocs, though! I remember when they were on Shark Tank!

  9. I would love these for my baby boy! He is about to walk (he's about a month older then your youngest) and his shoes are always falling off. I've been wanting to try these and see if they really don't fall off like everyone says!

  18. I would love to be able to surprise our little one (and my wife) with these moccs! We didn't have a lot of money when I was a kid, but my parents always made sure we had proper fitting shoes back then. That is why we are such big fans of Freshly Picked!
