Moc3 for Trail Running:

The thin 2mm soles on the Moc3 is suitable for most dirt, grass and moderate trails. Tough-footed barefooters will love them on rocky, technical trails. Since this shoe provides a very high level of groundfeel, beginners who have not yet strengthened their feet for barefoot-style running are advised to transition to rough/rocky surfaces slowly to avoid injury.

The Moc3 is not water resistant and is not recommended for stream crossing, though they are very easy to slip off and carry when you run through water.

Read a review from strayphoto.com that describes how the Moc3 performed on 500 miles of rough trails.

For runningReview by Mathieu

Un peu difficile au début, il a fallu laisser le temps à mes pieds de s'habituer à courir avec une semelle aussi mince. Une fois prêt, je vais toujours courir avec car on ressent TOUT ce qu'il se passe sous nos pieds.
Ce genre de chaussures m'a permis de coirir de nouveau. Avant, une douleur au genou m'interrompait très rapidement. Maintenant je cours de nouveau plus d'une heure sans arrêt ;)

(English Translation) A little difficult at first, it took time to let my feet get used to running with such a thin sole. Once ready, I will always run with because it feels like EVERYTHING is happening under our feet.
This kind of shoes made ​​me run again. Before knee pain interrupted me very quickly. Now I run again over an hour without stopping ; ) (Posted on 11/11/14)
My New Go-To ShoeReview by Katie

I ordered these for a triathlon, but stuck with my DASH RunAmocs for the race (which are also great shoes, especially for running). My feet seem to be between sizes, and I was worried these might be too small. I took them on some short runs, and was too nervous about my race to formulate an opinion. But over the past two months or so that I've had these, I keep slipping them on without thinking about it. I've got several pairs of minimalist shoes, including a couple of Vibram Five Fingers, Inov-8s, and New Balance, but it's these that keep ending up on my feet. This is saying a lot, because I can't even say I find them cute or endearing as I do the others. I love the soles especially, and they are conversation starters. Mostly, I love how free they make my feet feel.

I own three pairs of Soft Stars, the two mentioned here, plus a pair of Mary Janes for my wedding. I am certain I'll be a Soft Star customer for life. (Posted on 11/16/13)

Sizing Tips

Unsure about your size? Our printable guide will help you find the best fit for your feet! Just click the button below to print the guide and follow the instructions on the page (if you don't have access to a printer then scroll down for another option).

 

Note: before you print the guide, make sure your printer settings will not shrink or scale the page. Uncheck any boxes labeled "Fit to Printable Area" and/or set scaling options to "None."


 

Want more details? Check out this video for visual step-by-step instructions:

 

 

No Printer? No Problem!

You can still measure feet using the method below (also shown in our sizing videos). You can then scroll down and see where your measurements fall on our sizing charts to find the recommended shoe size. All you need is a book, a tape measure and a wall.

 

Note: we no longer recommend tracing your feet because it usually gives a larger measurement than the method described below. Our sizing charts work in accordance with the following method.

 

To measure your feet:

  • 1. Remove shoes and socks and place the bare foot so that the heel is barely touching a wall.
  • 2. Place a book in on the floor, parallel to the wall, so that it is barely touching the front of the longest toe.
  • 3. Step away carefully and measure the distance from the book to the wall.
  • 4. Scroll down and look for this measurement on the sizing charts below to find the recommended shoe size.

Once you find your length measurement, you can use table below to best find your corresponding size.

Wide/Narrow: Trouble deciding your width? Our best recommendation is to order a wide or narrow only if you have found you need those custom widths in other brands for your feet to be comfortable. If you have never found you needed wide or narrow shoes before then we suggest sticking with our regular width.

Style notes:

If you find yourself between two shoe sizes, we recommend ordering the larger size. This is especially true of our adult Phoenix Boots, Portlanders and Rogue casual shoes, which run a bit small.

Pros & Cons

 

Pros: A favorite for its stylish look and extremely cozy feel.

Cons: Not water resistant, unless treated with a suede protector leathercare. Requires more effort to clean (we recommend a suede brush).

Pros: Naturally water resistant and easy to clean. Keeps feet warm and protected in cold, wet weather.

Cons: May cause feet to feel warm in hot climates, depending on your tolerance for heat/cold (still more breathable than most rubber or faux-leather shoes).

Pros: Lightweight, keeps feet cool and ventilated. A favorite for running in warm weather. Easy to clean.

Cons: Not water resistant... it has holes!

Use

Our suede leather is a popular choice for casual everyday shoes that look and feel fantastic! Many people use it for athletic shoes as well, though it does require extra effort to keep dry and clean.

Smooth leather provides the most protection from the elements. A popular choice for protecting feet from cold or wet weather. Also gives a classy look for dressy or formal occasions.

While naturally somewhat water resistant, smooth leather can be made more waterproof with full grain leathercare.

Great for athletes wanting to keep feet ventilated and cool. This naturally lightweight material minimizes shoe weight to maximize performance. Although it is not water resistant, the thin, airy material dries quickly and is easy to clean.

 

RUNAMOC HISTORY: 

In the fall of 2009, we noticed a sharp increase in calls from customers requesting modifications to our existing line of minimalist moccasins. We were surprised to learn that people weren't only wearing them around the house, but to run trails, marathons and even ultramarathons. With interest increasing in barefoot running, we began development of a barefoot running moccasin designed by and for runners.

Soft Star called on our online community of fans to solicit input on ideal features to design a new shoe designed specifically for runners that was light, ventilated and featured super thin and flexible running soles. Our fantastic customers submitted ideas, provided feedback on prototypes and ultimately voted on the name RunAmoc. Since the very successful launch of the Original RunAmoc, we have added the Dash and the Moc3 to the line. We hope you find these unique running shoes to be a benefit to your training routine and a treat for your feet!

 

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT TRANSITIONING TO MINIMAL RUNNING SHOES:

Making the switch from traditional shoes to minimal shoes or barefoot running/walking should be done gradually with research and advice from healthcare professionals to prevent injury. It is not recommended to begin heavy running in minimalist/barefoot shoes until your feet have adapted properly. You will probably be tempted to just take off since they are FUN and you feel like a kid in them, but you may end up injuring yourself if you plunge into full speed without proper conditioning. There is a lot of great advice in the recommended reading about transitioning to a more minimal shoe. It is worth your time to do some research and find a training plan that works for you.

Our disclaimer: please remember that we are shoemakers, not doctors. Nothing we say or write should be taken as medical advice or replace advice from a medical professional.
