Freshly Picked Moccasins & a Giveaway! & Chuck the Truck DVD Review (NYC)

Slippers are so yesterday’s news!

Susan Petersen, founder and creator of Freshly Picked Moccasins, 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.


Creator and Founder Susan Peterson

Since those first attempts, Susan’s designs have changed six times and the moccasins she has for sale now are durable, well designed, and most importantly: stay on your child’s foot.  What a concept!

Susan was also on Shark Tank! She explained to the sharks that money was tight and in order to earn money to start her business she convinced her brother, who owns a window installation business, to let her keep the old windows that he was removing from the houses. She spent a whole summer banging the glass out of the windows because they were encased in aluminum frames and then Susan took the scrap metal to the scrap yard. She made $200 and with that, she started Freshly Picked Moccasins.


Steel color option

Each pair of moccasins features a unique design with elastic at the opening. Freshly Picked shoes are easy to put on and take off your child’s foot. The moccasins are soft-soled and made with durable 100% leather that makes them soft enough for infants to wear yet durable enough for a toddler. Each pair is lovingly handmade in the Freshly Picked shop.

My little guy is loving his cobalt suede moccs. I love how they fit comfortably around his feet, yet they stay on. They are super soft and I can see they are handmade with time, effort, and care. Plus, I am loving the color options that are available… not your usual boring blacks and browns only!

The good folks at Freshly Picked would love to give away one pair of their moccasins to a lucky winner! That is a $60 value!
