Susan Petersen 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.I honestly have no idea as where to start with this review. There is so much that I want to say, but yet so little time and space. Besides these moccasins making your baby look fashion forward, they are also made with 100% genuine leather and love. These shoes easily slide on and off, but still manage to stay on the feet. It's magic! If you still aren't believing me about how amazing these are, here's a picture of the ones I received.
Since then the moccasins have gone through about six design changes. Each change has perfected the look and the fit of the soft-soled shoe. The moccasins you purchase today are durable, well designed, and most importantly: stay on your child’s foot.
Money was tight at the time Susan started and in order to earn money to start her business she got resourceful. Her brother owns a window installation business and in the summer of 2009 she convinced him 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. At the end of the summer she took the aluminum window frames to the scrap yard and recycled them to get money. She made $200 dollars and with that literal sweat equity, she started her business.
Each pair of moccasins, whether being shipped to the rich and famous (or at least their kids), or shipped across town, are made with care, perfection and a love for the little feet they are intended for. We sincerely hope you enjoy our product!
If you still aren't sold, then something must be wrong with you. (I'm kidding.) (Am I?) Anyways, these precious things got to my doorstep so fast that I was literally shocked! I opened them in a it of giggles and smiles. Oh how I wish they were my size!
