In my pre-mommy days I accumulated a shoe collection I think only Carrie Bradshaw could have rivaled. I fondly remember the time I purchased my classic black Audrey Hepburn flats without batting an eye at the price tag. As much as I reveled in my personal shoe fetish, as soon as I became a mother, my priorities changed. Now I get a thrill from constructing my son’s shoe collection, and among his selection of kicks are the sweetest pair of handmade baby moccasins from Chérubin™ moccasins. The word chérubin (pronounced CHAIR-uh-bin) is French for cherub, and these are certainly the perfect accessory for my cherub baby!
As a first time mom with a personal love of shoes I was so excited to receive a pair of leather Chérubin moccasins for my two-month-old babe. With all their fun and colourful exclusive designs by local artists, it was hard to choose just one design! But eventually I opted for the cute yet rugged look of the “I Found You!” camo print so I could subtly (or not so subtly) match him with some of hubby’s muted tones. I love how they have plenty of options for both girls and boys, and that most are gender neutral and could easily be passed down to any sibling.
I used the handy and easy to use sizing guide to help me decide what size was right for my little one. I took their advice and chose one size up so I could make sure he gets as much wear out of them as possible. Although he still has a bit of growing to do to make it a perfect fit, I can already tell they’re a great shoe for him.
The moccasins arrived carefully packaged in a simple and stylish drawstring bag which is perfect if you’re thinking of gifting these little puppies to anyone. When I opened it up I was thrilled to see such beautifully and carefully crafted shoes. You can really see and feel the quality in the materials and in every single stitch. Trust me, they’re soft and pliable enough for the most tender of tootsies. I love knowing that each pair of moccasins is handmade and unique – they really are tiny works of art!
Chérubin moccasins are made with smooth leather throughout and buttery soft suede on the soles. The non-slip suede sole is also great for traction when little ones are learning to pull themselves up on furniture and eventually learning to walk, so I can see how these moccasins will be a fantastic footwear option for months to come.
Each pair is 100% made in the USA from USA leather, and Chérubin only uses materials that are tested and certified safe for infants and toddlers. It puts my mind at ease knowing that all the materials are trusted and safe for my baby, even when he manages to get those flexible little feet into his hands and mouth.
My little one comes with me everywhere, and I love that I can accessorize him with all the fun and funky prints that Chérubin provides! I would definitely recommend them to others and plan on making them my go-to gift for stylish little munchkins. What a perfect gift these would be for Christmas!
