Our natural, full-grain aged leather is used exclusively for this shoe to give its rustic look. The upper interior is lined with our unique Breathe-O-Prene, a stretchy medical-grade material designed for superior ventilation and breathability. Breathe-O-Prene keeps the shoe fitting snugly around your foot for a secure and cozy fit. The shoe slips on easily and is so comfortable that many of our customers tell us they forget to take them off when they come home at the end of the day!

The Rogue features an 8mm version of our Vibram Geo sole. This lightweight sole is very flexible to allow barefoot-style movement and groundfeel with improved durability and traction. The interior footbed comes with a natural suede removable innersole. We also include an additional pair of interchangeable sheepskin innersoles with your order. Now you can switch between suede or sheepskin to adjust for climate, thicker socks or just for a change of pace!

Rogue Innersoles

Our genuine sheepskin is homeostatic and naturally wicks moisture to keep feet warm and dry. Sheepskin's natural wicking action pushes away moisture to keep feet dry in the summer and cozy in the winter. The natural loft of the sheep will form to the shape of your foot and pack down over time, so the fit may feel a bit snug with new sheep innersoles for the first few days. We recommend starting with the suede innersoles and then switch to the sheep after the shoes have broken-in for a comfortable fit.

We love oursReview by Ringo

I ordered a pair for my husband, an elementary school teacher who is on his feet all day, and he loves his Rogues. It's been over a year and he wears them a few times a week and wants a second pair so that he can keep a pair at each of the schools he works at.

I ordered myself a pair after seeing how happy he was with his. I want to wear these every day. They are like slippers. I'm also a teacher, and I also find these comfortable to wear all day. Poking out from under a pair of pants or nice jeans, the Rogues are sleek and casual-but-not-too-casual. I've had mine for a year and the soles are starting to wear thin, so I'm getting ready for my second pair. (Posted on 12/3/14)

My job has me on my feet all day on concrete floors. The Rogue gives me that extra bit of cushion while preserving a barefoot feel. They are sooo comfortable! Thank you! (Posted on 5/6/14)
Wish they were offered in wideReview by cb

Nicely made. Comfortable. Started wearing Soft Stars because they were able to take care of my wide feet. Wish they offered these in a wide makeup. Not happy with the new sizing implemented in the last year, either. Next time I'll go up a size. If you have feet that fall within the bounds of the mass market, these are great. That's obviously the direction Soft Star has felt the need to go. (Posted on 2/5/14)
Not just for men!Review by Emily

I ordered a pair of these because I love my running shoes and wanted something similar that was a bit more water resistant for everyday shoes. As soon as I ordered I started to worry that these would be too manly, and also that the black would be awkwardly too gray, like the picture here. Turns out I didn't need to worry--they are perfect! Although I love the feminine cut of the merry janes, when I worry about puddles, these are just what I was wanting. I don't feel at all like I am wearing my husband's shoes. And black is black.

Comfortable stylish shoe, but lacks durabilityReview by Nate

Out of the box, this shoe is stylish, comfortable, and extremely versatile. I use mine for work, outings around the town, occasional runs, and light duty trails. Unfortunately as with my other Softstars, they do not last as long as I would like. Within two months of purchase the stitching around the toe box had blown out, which I was fortunately able to repair myself. After four months the seam between the sole and toe box started to come apart, which was extremely difficult to repair and now I am left with a gapping hole. I love the fact that Softstars are handmade in the USA, but for the price they should at least last a year. (Posted on 12/23/13)

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."

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.

Care

Care Tips for Full Grain Leather Shoes

WHEN THEY FIRST ARRIVE:

Soft Star Shoes are made from eco-friendly, tanned in USA leathers.  Leather is a natural product and some variation in texture and markings is to be expected.  Because we use natural food-grade dyes in our leather, there will likely be some initial color transference to your socks or skin if your shoes become damp - this will decrease with use but please don't wear your new Soft Stars with your favorite white socks the first time you take them for a spin. 

If your shoes are a little snug at first in the toe box area, you can gently stretch them by stuffing the toe box with a slightly damp rag.  Push the cloth tightly into the front of the shoe - don't worry, you cannot hurt it!  Let the shoes sit stuffed overnight to stretch.

MAINTENANCE:

The full grain leather we use is naturally water resistant. Clean as needed with water dampened rag and let air dry. Condition the leather as often as desired with any quality leather dressing, but take care to keep it away from the edges of your rubber soles.  Mink oil can degrade the adhesion on bonded soles and cause the sole to separate from your shoe over time. We highly recommend Bee Natural Amore for general conditioning or Rain & Snow on leather for enhanced water resistance. The color on shiny metallic shoes will eventually patina with use into an antique wear look - this can be accelerated with repeated use to water and high wear (e.g. scuffing toes).

WASHING:

You can use a damp cloth, or if needed you can hand wash your leather shoes using a gentle shampoo and cool water.  We don't recommend frequent washing of any leather product as it strips the leather of it's natural oils and tends to dry stiffer.

We are often asked if our shoes can be washed in a washing machine.  While not recommended as a normal course of action, when in dire straits the Elves have been known to toss a pair of shoes in the machine and generally have had good results - just don't mix them with any other item because of color bleeding, and do NOT put shoes the dryer.  Shoes with sheepskin can take 3-4 days to air dry if fully submerged in water - you can speed up the drying by stuffing with old newspapers and replacing the paper 2x a day.
