Thank you to Freshly Picked for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts shared are my own.
Having a little walker on board is so exciting.Baby S started walking just after her first birthday, and now, three months later, she's fast on those feet, trying to keep up with her big brother. She's learned how to say 'up,' 'down,' and 'walk,' and wants to walk every chance she gets. We've been on the go so much the past couple of months that she's been doing a lot of riding in the car or stroller. When she does get the opportunity to walk around, she makes the most of it- exploring every little thing she can get to... and it's a joy to watch.It's always been hard work for my husband and me to find good baby shoes that are comfortable, well made, and will actually fit our children's feet. They both have thick feet from top to bottom, and finding shoes to stretch and properly fit can be and has been a challenge.
When I learned about Freshly Picked, I was touched by their story, and was interested in seeing if their adorable moccs would be a good fit for Baby S in her daily adventures. Freshly Picked has an incredible selection of gorgeous, trendy moccs that are comfy for babies to wear, and stay on their feet.
Freshly Picked all began with Founder, Susan Petersen, creating moccs out of scrap leather at her kitchen table, back in 2009. Today, Freshly Picked has shipped their stylish moccs to the rich and famous, and to mocc-lovers all over the world.
The Birch Mary Janes- a classic design, and the perfect pick for summer!
I could have spent hours pouring over the adorable styles of moccs at Freshly Picked. It was a hard decision to pick just one style for S to enjoy this summer, as I loved each pair I laid eyes on. There were so many fun colors and prints available- everything from watermelons to ice cream cones! I chose a classic style, like the Birch Mary Janes, because they looked so sweet, and seemed to match my sweet girl's style and personality. The neutral color has been a win-win for us. These moccs go with anything and everything from dresses and skirts to leggings and shorts.
The beautiful Birch Mary Janes are fabulous for babies and toddlers.
Our Freshly Picked Birch Mary Janes has been everywhere with us this summer. They've been to the beach, to the mountains, and to Florida. S loves to wear them because they are so lightweight. All of her other shoes are clunky, and her cute baby moccs aren't. She never trips over them, and really can't seem to figure out how to pull them off of her feet, which is a win for mommy. Since they are made from durable, yet thin leather, these moccs help S to be steady on her feet, as if she were walking barefooted.

The Birch Mary Janes have become our first choice for footwear for S. They're easy to slip onto her feet, and since they're so light and comfy for her to wear, we don't have to worry about her screaming about them or her trying to pull them off in the car, where we can't reach her. She walks like a pro in these cute Mary Janes, and she always receives compliments on them when she wears them out. I'm excited to see what new styles come from Freshly Picked this fall so we can add to our collection. S will be headed to Day School two mornings a week, and these will be perfect for her to play in all morning as she learns and makes new toddler friends.
They're even perfect for indoor play and snack time!
My husband has been incredibly impressed by Freshly Picked. He's a stickler for quality products, especially shoes. He's also a big fan of leather anything, so he really loves these Mary Janes, and thinks S looks rather adorable in them. He's only slightly biased.
Features and Info
This sweet Mary Jane style is designed specifically for babies and toddlers with the same easy-on elastic opening and width as moccasins that keeps them secure on little feet. Made of our luxe Birch leather with a t-strap cut out, teardrop details and adorable scalloped collar.
Elastic at the opening makes the shoes easy to put on, easy to take off, and most importantly: they stay on your child’s foot.
Our soft-soled shoes are made with 100% durable, wear-tested leather and are suitable for infants and toddlers alike.
Each Mary Jane is made by hand, and may vary slightly in leather grain and stitching details.
These sweet Mary Janes just fit Baby S. She is 15 months, and we chose the 12-18 mo size (3). She has only a tiny bit of room in them, so I would say that if your kiddo's feet are on the larger side, you will probably want to size up. There is a handy size chart on every page of moccs on the Freshly Picked site, to help you make the best decision for your little one. If you do need to exchange for a larger or smaller size, exchanges are no problem!
