From my perspective, it is very difficult to receive excellent customer service these days. My biggest pet peeve is when you call a company and you are immediately taken to an automated machine that has a million menu options and it’s almost impossible to actually talk to a real, live, human being. You used to be able to “press zero” or say “representative” but now, even if you try those things, you either get hung up on or are told “I’m sorry, we did not understand your request, please try again” about ten times before I end up getting so frustrated I am the one that hangs up.
So when there is a company that takes their time with you and treats you like their only customer, it not only makes you feel special, but you grow to love and respect the company on a whole other level. Any and every time I have spoken to someone at Freshly Picked I have had a more than stellar experience.
In addition to the outstanding customer service, another reason I love Freshly Picked so much is because of the admiration and respect I have for the founder, Susan Petersen. You may have seen her on NBC’s Shark Tank; she began from humble beginnings and started the company from the ground up in 2009. She started making designs in her kitchen, which have now gone through six design changes, and has since expanded the company into making more than moccasins. She is a mom, a business owner, entrepreneur, and has a pretty special knack for design! I only hope I will have the opportunity to meet her one day. Maybe she’ll even consider being a keynote speaker at one of my upcoming blogging retreats!
In addition to the wonderful people that make up the company, have I told you how much I adore their products? As a mom, when I find a good quality product that stands the test of time, I become loyal to that product and not only exclusively purchase from that company, but brag about them to other moms every opportunity I can. I sincerely hope that one day I can be an official brand ambassador for this company. Freshly Picked is made up of people I respect, products I believe in, and a brand I trust.
Let’s talk about the look. The soft sole moccs are simply adorable! My daughter purposely picks them out to wear almost everyday and she constantly gets compliments out in public when she wears them. As an infant, her first pair was in the color “Weathered Brown” and we loved them because they matched with everything! She has since grown out of them, but now has two pairs to wear! As a toddler, she has the soft sole moccasin in “Platinum” – which are very sparkly, girly, and match with everything…and now in “Oasis” – which if you haven’t noticed is part of their new spring line and my all time favorite color! You can tell she feels very special when she wears them.
Let’s talk about the selection. There are over 60 styles of soft sole moccs to choose from on www.freshlypicked.com and there are many different options for boys and girls. The soft sole moccs are designed primarily for infants and toddlers. The moccs fit true to size and are available in children shoe sizes 1 – 9. You can also find the “Next Step Shoe” for children graduating from a toddler to a big kid. These hard-soled moccasins run a 1/2 size small and are available in children sizes 7 – 13. One of my favorite items is the “Bringing Home Baby Bundle” that comes in 3 different colors. I can’t wait to have another baby so I can have one of these!
Let’s talk about the quality. The moccs are very durable and the leather is super soft. They clean easily, especially with the Leather Cleaning and Conditioning Wipes and or the Suede Cleaning Kit. Both only cost $7! If you are detoured to buy these moccs in any way because of the price, hesitate no further, these shoes will last as long as your child fits into them and they are worth every penny. Did I mention they clean easily?
Let’s talk about the benefits of buying moccasins. The moccs are easy to get on and off and they stay on your child’s feet! Plus your young child has to have a shoe that is best for their development. According to the research I have done, the bones in an infant’s foot are made of cartilage and a shoe that is too rigid or tight can change the shape of your child’s foot. Therefore, it is important that you choose a shoe in the first few years of your child’s life that provides maximum movement. Soft sole shoes are highly recommended to help the feet grow normally and to help develop foot strength and grasping action in the toes. Most experts recommend lightweight, flexible footwear made of natural materials, like breathable leather. This is why the Freshly Picked moccasins are so perfect!
