Scandeez Baby Mok Shoes Review and Giveaway!




If you read my blog, you know I have an almost 10 month old little girl named Violet and she is my flower child! She has never worn shoes! With winter coming up, we figured we should get her used to shoes. Easier said than done!!

Enter Scandeez and their adorable Moks. I came across this cute little Etsy shop and fell in love with the shoes Connie makes! Not only are they cute, but she has eco-ethics as well! She uses only natural fibers and fabrics. They are just the sweetest shoes! Here are some examples of the cuteness!

Baby Leather Ladybug Moks Size 0-3 Months Baby Leather Dots Moks Sz 0-3M Baby Leather Dots Moks Sz 0-3M Baby Leather Whale Moks Sz 18-24M Baby Leather Skull and Crossbones Moks Sz 3-12M Baby Leather Elephant Moks Sz 12-18M Baby Leather Elephant Moks Sz 12-18M Baby Leather LLama Moks Sz 3-12M

The best shoe for a baby really is a soft shoe! Babies need to feel the ground to learn to walk. If my baby can't be barefoot, I would choose these as a second choice in a heartbeat! The uppers, inside sole and exterior sole are made from leather. They are soooo soft! The tops have a small band of elastic to help them give a snug fit so baby can't kick them off as easily! I love the designs on the bottom! What a cute surprise when someone picks your baby up! The craft-womansip is just supurb and the quality is amazing. You will not be dissapointed here!

I really love how friendly Connie is and how much she loves her work. You can really tell she takes time and care to make these shoes and that makes them even more special to me. I feel like she cared what my little Violet would look like in these shoes. These were made FOR Violet, as all her shoes are made to order. You pick what you want and then allow her a few days to make the item and then ship it.

Moks come in a variety of sizes, all based on your baby's heel measurement. This measurement is precise! I always buy big and in this case it kind of bit me in the butt. My little girl is big, she is wearing 12 and 18 months size clothes at not even ten months! Since she has never worn shoes, I measured and then added a little for good measure, dont do that! haha. They fit her but they are a little loose. The sizing issue was entirely my fault though! Right now we are putting socks on with hers and they fit just fine. I think it is wonderful that they are true to fit! Make sure you measure your little one's foot and go by that!

Here is what Connie recommends:

Size:
Please add 1/4"(.6cm) or more to baby's foot measurement then choose size according to that total measurement.

0-3 months 3 1/4"(8.3 cm) - 3 3/4"(9.5 cm)
3-12 months 4"(10.2 cm) - 4 3/4"(12.1 cm)
12-18 months 4 3/4"(12.1 cm) - 5 1/4"(13.3 cm)
18-24 months 5 1/4"(13.3 cm) - 5 3/4"(14.6 cm)

Let me just add that I added to her 1/4" recommendation! I added 1/2" instead of 1/4" like she says to do! Follow her directions, she knows what she is doing!

These are the adorable Moks Violet was able to test out!

Baby Leather Flower Moks Sz 0-3M

I thought the purple color and the flower were very fitting for her! I don't have a picture of her in hers to put up here yet because she is entirely uncooperative so far in wearing shoes. I suggest that you buy these when your little ones are in a 0-3 months and let them get used to them from the beginning. This is true of ANY shoe. It's going to take a little more patience with Violet to get her to keep her shoes on! I think she takes after me and just likes being barefoot!

I just want to take a moment and gush about how soft and flexible these shoes are. I keep rubbing my hand along the bottoms! The entire inside is soft too! Any baby would be comfortable in these. I think these shoes are just what new walkers need to feel comfortable and confident. No baby is going to want to learn to walk in an uncomfortable shoe!

These shoes are priced at $30.00 which is an incredible value for an extremely well hand crafted item! These are made when you order them, for your little one! I am a firm believer in buying good, pricier shoes for their first shoes because it is so important for their little feet to get a nice start!

She also makes a variety of other items, such as wet bags, onesies and burp cloths! So talented!

Of course I have amazing things to say about Connie! She is a darling to work with! You wont have an issues with her and her eco-friendly shop!
