Mini Mocs is a company that marries form, function and fashion for the youngest Michiganders and babies all over the world. Founded in Michigan in 2005, Mini Mocs is the brain child of Annie Boyer, aunt to her sister’s six kids and witness to her sister’s frustration at not being able to find unique, high quality footwear for her children. Mini Mocs is the result of Annie’s desire to change that.

Mini Mocs are essentially designer footwear for babies, but they serve a greater purpose than just keeping kids looking fashionable. Mini Mocs, which come in four different sizes, are pediatrician recommended for good development. Experts say that being barefoot is best for development, and Mini Mocs provides the freedom of being barefoot, with the protection of having shoes on. And because they are produced with motor skill maturation in mind, Mini Mocs provide the most support for good development at all stages of infancy.

And as if making those wearing them happy weren’t enough, parents will love Mini Mocs, too. Designed to stay on, Mini Mocs eliminate the tediousness of continually retrieving dropped and kicked off shoes. All Mini Mocs footwear is also incredibly flexible and machine washable – and what parent wouldn’t love that? Curious babies can even put their Mini Mocs in their mouths without causing parental anxiety.

Another reason Mini Mocs impress those who purchase a pair: all of the shoes are handmade with incredibly high quality material. The care exercised in the production of Mini Mocs ensures that each shoe is made to be the most comfortable, superior quality footwear on the market.

Annie also has big plans for the future of Mini Mocs; along with a redesign of the website she’s currently working on, Annie has plans to expand the products Mini Mocs offers, as well. She says, “With the New Year ahead Mini-Mocs is continuing to grow here in Michigan, the USA and overseas in Italy. We will soon be adding 2 new sizes to our permanent collection as well as baby accessories & some clothing.”

Hi, all! A few years ago, I was fortunate enough to meet Awesome Mitten creator Alex Beaton at one of my favorite Michigan landmarks: Michigan State University. Aside from my indulging Spartan roots with trips to East Lansing, I spend most of my time watching movies, cooking, hanging out with my family, and counting down the days until summer, when I can spend a few more days on any of the beautiful lakes of Michigan.
