Ever heard of Sock Ons? The clever design that go over babies feet to keep their socks in place? Well the same designers have also got a similar product – Moccons. Using the same concept – the slipper socks are thicker material with little moccasins attached to the bottom. They range in size from 6-12 months up to 2-3 years and come in a variety of unisex designs to go with all outfits.
We were kindly gifted a pair and I chose the navy stripes as they caught my eye and were likely to go with most outfits.
Elijah has been wearing them for a few weeks now – mostly when he is in his carrier on a walk, especially on an evening or chillier day, as they are perfect for keeping his toes warm. We also use them for little slippers when we are away camping. In the last three weeks he has started to crawl and so when we are away and in the awning we like to have his feet covered so these are the perfect option.
The sock section is highly elasticated so they stay on the feet really well, so you run no risks of loosing one when your out and about. I am sure you have all been there (not just the Dads…) when you get back home and you realise even after all the checks every few minutes, that you have lost either a sock, or God forbid an expensive (if not pointless!?) shoe?? Nodding your head in agreement? Yeah the missus still hasnt forgiven me for loosing one of Zachs sandals almost 3 years ago when he was a baby!!!
Being the outdoors family that we are – Eli had the moccons covered in mud second time of wearing them. So i am happy to confirm that they are in fact machine washable and come out in perfect condition again ready for the next adventure.
If you fancy a pair for your little ones feet you can purchase them here direct from the website. But they are also available widely at various stockists.
