Susan Petersen started Freshly Picked in 2009 right out of her kitchen. She made the first pair of leather moccasins using yard sale scraps for her baby boy’s chubby feet. She found she wasn’t the only one searching for cute baby shoes that wouldn’t fall off, and Freshly Picked began.
Each of our products is lovingly handmade by teams of artisans locally in Utah and abroad, using only the highest-quality genuine Italian leather, suede, nylon, and vegan leather materials. No detail is left untouched, to ensure quality from the first stitch to your little one’s first steps.
WHY SOFT SOLES
Soft soles are unique because they allow your child to extend their toes and grip the floor as if they were walking barefoot, which can help children improve their balance and coordination as they grow. The American Association of Pediatrics (AAP), says that the average child doesn’t need shoes with “wedges, inserts, high backs, reinforced heels, special arches, and other features designed to shape and support the feet.” Babies’ sensitive feet also need protection from things like rough surfaces, cold temperatures, or objects lying on the floor. The elastic insert around the top of Freshly Picked moccs helps keep them secure no matter what.
