Why I love Freshly Picked Moccs

January 7, 2017 No Comments

When I was pregnant with Porter and found out he was a boy, I became very focused on finding cute boy clothes. In my head, boy clothes meant ugly spider man shirts, onesies with teddy bears on them that say “mommy loves me,” bulky Velcro shoes that light up, and whatever other hideous thing you can think of.
Thankfully, all I had to do was a little Google searching to find cute, stylish clothes I now exclusively dress my boys in, aside from occasional ugly footie pajamas (pajamas get a free pass because they’re warm and not worn in public for the most part).
One of the first brands I fell in love with back in 2013 is Freshly Picked, and I wasn’t the only one. Since then, the brand has expanded and it’s become wildly successful.
At $60 a pair, I admit it took me a little while to bite the bullet and buy a pair for Porter when he was a baby; he didn’t have his first pair until he was about a year old. Once I had them, I regretted not buying them sooner because they are AMAZING. They made my life so much easier because they’re super easy to put on (even with squirmy baby feet), they’re made with real leather with solid construction, they’re durable, they’re stylish AND they stretch, so your babe will be able to wear them for longer than he/she would a more traditional shoe.

They’re so successful, they were able to reduce the cost of making some of the classic colors and they passed that savings on to their customers, because they’re awesome. They also frequently have sales, so you can always get your hands on a pair for less than $60. Check www.freshlypicked.com to see the latest prints and styles, and also to find the reduced priced moccs! Needless to say, my second son Preston has been wearing Freshly Picked moccs since his first month of life. Now that he’s almost 10 months old, he practically lives in them.IMG_2048 2.jpg
I should mention that there are a gazillion knock-off Freshly Picked moccs being sold out there and I have to admit, I did succumb to ordering a pair once and the quality just didn’t compare. They didn’t fit his feet as well, the material felt cheap and they weren’t nearly as durable. I would take one pair of genuine Freshly Picked moccs over 10 pairs of fakies any day!

    Love these light grey Mocs and Preston’s adorable overalls!

      Thank you! The jumper is from Janie and Jack and I got them on major sale during the summer time while I was pregnant 🙂

    We have the grey too!

  • Mandy January 10, 2017 at 1:30 am

    We have a pair and love them!!

    • houseofmitchells January 10, 2017 at 10:03 pm

      They really are the best shoe ever for babies. Sooo easy to put on compared to every other shoe we’ve tried

  • Lacey January 10, 2017 at 12:45 pm

    FP mocs are seriously so cute!

    • houseofmitchells January 10, 2017 at 10:04 pm

      They are THE BEST. All the knock off ones suck haha

  • Angel January 10, 2017 at 3:36 pm

    Those are the cutest shoes!

  • Lindsey January 10, 2017 at 3:52 pm

    I adore their mocs! Wish I had picked some up when my girls were babies! They’d make a great gift, though!

    • houseofmitchells January 10, 2017 at 10:05 pm

      My first born wore his until he was about 2 – that was when he started putting holes in them because he was so active. FP does make some hard soled shoes though, you should check those out!

    We have been shopping Freshly Picked for over 2 years now and have never been disappointed! They are the best!

    • houseofmitchells January 13, 2017 at 3:21 pm

      They really really are! Plus they’re a great company, made in USA etc.

  • mothersoulshares January 10, 2017 at 7:52 pm

    These are super cute! My lil guy used to wear moccs all the time as a baby 😉

  • lrramnath January 10, 2017 at 10:00 pm

    I love those on little ones! I haven’t heard of this brand but I will definitely have to check them out if I ever have another little one.

    • houseofmitchells January 13, 2017 at 3:19 pm

      Totally check them out! I know they’re a little pricey but like was saying, one pair of these in my opinion is better than 6 pairs of something cheaper that would add up to the same price as a pair of these anyway!

    I LOVE FP! By the way, when I was pregnant with our son (now 4), I was convinced there weren’t any cute boy clothes. But I was SO WRONG! They are ADORABLE!

    This seems like a great product to poise my five month-old to become label-obsessed. Can’t wait to get rid of her “hideous” Wal-Mart onesies and her cliche infant wardrobe. What matters here is that my child understands important life-lessons like “how to spot a knock-off” and when to tell a person that pajamas are unacceptable in public. If she doesn’t, who will?
    I’m exited to see how superficial she becomes, and when her marriage fails because of her materialism, or if she chooses to pole-dance because that profession
    empowers her financially, whether it be a Michael Kors pacifier for her illegitimate son or Prada baby wipes, at least I’ll feel good knowing that I provided more than just nurturing, love, and warmth – I gave her the best moccasins a small child cannot scientifically remember, nor process, nor appreciate.

      Wow! I’m so sorry this post clearly offended you. I have plenty of Carter’s onesies and have bought plenty of basic plain pieces from Walmart (jeans and t shirt type stuff) and was lucky enough to have many items given to me by a friend with an older boy who has similar style. My having a preference of how I dress my boys has nothing to do with money. I think we are all allowed to have an opinion on how we dress our babies. Making a generalization and claiming this is materialistic is extremely rude and judgemental. You seem to have contempt for me liking Freshly Picked moccasins which is odd to me. This post was meant to share with other moms the success I’ve had with a shoe brand. I wrote about the knock offs and their lack of quality because the ones I bought were really bad quality. Had they been better quality, I would have happily kept buying them. Again, really sorry my liking Freshly Picked seems to strike such a chord and upset you to this degree; enough to attack me and my fundamental values. My having a shoe preference for my babies in no way shape or form was insinuating that LOVE isn’t the most important thing that I give them. I wish the best for you and your babes.

    Those are so super cute! Too bad my little guy is too big for them now!

    • houseofmitchells January 13, 2017 at 3:18 pm

      Bummer! I was so sad when my oldest got too big for them 🙁

    • Highlight of my weekend was a date night with this guy 🥰. I got this leopard blazer from @zara back in November, and I’m loving how it carries into spring time by pairing it with some white jeans and open toed heels. It’s a good thing I don’t post photos of myself every time I go out, or you’d all be saying “Hey Beth, this blazer is over played. Go shopping.” 😂🤪🤷🏻‍♀️ #leopardprintforlife #datenightoutfit #stylishmomsociety

    • This kid spent the entire summer last year asking to swim. Literally every single day, “Mom can we go swimming ?”🐟 Which is why I’m SO EXCITED that he got a spot on the super impacted, hardly any spots available U6 boys swim team! We only had to get there and wait in line at 6am in the rain 🤪 and by we, I mean super dad @ryancurtismitchell. Parenting win! #apdolphins
    • Today marks the first day ever where Preston’s hair cut didn’t involve physical restraint and screaming bloody murder. He was such a good boy and got the biggest smile on his face when he looked at himself in the mirror afterwards 💛💛. I knew you’d conquer that fear someday Presto 😍. Scroll for his “before” pic ➡️😂
