Quick Overview

Our most popular style moccasin, the Roo is made with soft suede uppers and our strong soft suede sole. Inside, you will find genuine sheepskin innersoles that keep the foot protected, dry and comfortable. Sheepskin is a natural heat regulator that keeps feet dry in the summer and cozy in the winter. Inner elastic hugs the ankle, making the shoe easy to slip on. Roos are hand-crafted with the highest quality formaldehyde-free suede.

Details

  • Genuine Sheepskin innersoles keep feet dry in summer & warm in winter while providing comfort and cushioning.
  • Indoor / Dry outdoor shoe.
  • Elastic ankle closure—easy on and stays on!
  • Can be worn with or without socks.
  • Handcrafted in USA from premium, formaldehyde-free leathers.

We believe shoes should provide protection from the elements while doing their best to simulate barefoot conditions.  Soft Star Shoes are designed wider, with flexible soft soles and natural breathable materials. All our soles are as lightweight and flexible as possible while still providing the protection needed.

Our Roo moccasins are made with traditional suede soles that are flexible and soft. This sole works well both indoors and outdoors (when dry out) with a thick leather layer for protection. Suede is naturally durable and non-skid.  Over time this soft leather will lovingly wear into a smoother, moisture-resistant surface (if you wish to restore the non-skid properties of suede you can gently rub the sole with a wire brush to lift the natural fibers).

Inside the shoe you will find generous sheepskin innersoles that keep the foot protected, dry and comfortable. Genuine sheepskin is nature's heat regulator—it keeps feet dry in the summer and cozy in the winter. Inner elastic hugs the ankle, making the shoe easy to slip on and stay on.

Please use table below to best find your corresponding size. For best results, rely on your standard US shoe size. We find this to be the best place to start for adults and generally the most reliable method.

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 and Rogue casual shoes, which run a bit small.

SOLES

Suede Soles

 Suede Sole

Grippy T-Rex Soles

Grippy T-Rex Sole

Genuine sheepskin innersole.

Softest, most comfortable sole. Best for the true barefooter.

Sole will patina with wear, forming a thin skin that is slightly water resistant and very durable.

Initially non-slip. Possible to run and slide (if you want) on smooth floors once they are broken-in.

Can be worn outdoors on dry days.

Genuine sheepskin innersole.

A rubberized fabric is bonded to the suede soles for an extra layer of grip. This is NOT a rubber sole, but a thin rubber layer that covers the suede sole to prevent sliding on smooth floors.  

Water resistant

Sole begins with "clean" black look. Over time it may wear off and show suede sole underneath in high wear spots.

Can be worn outdoors on damp surfaces (not a waterproof shoe)

DURABILITY:

Most people buy Soft Star moccasins as indoor-only shoes or slippers. They are also used in many Montessori and Waldorf classrooms as their comfortable fit promotes healthy foot development, balance and body awareness.

Our moccasins are also durable for outside wear with a few exceptions. Many of our customers have even trained for and run in marathons while wearing their moccasins! This being said, durability varies greatly from person to person. While most families end up passing down kid moccasins 2 or 3 times, we occasionally hear from customers who have worn through their shoes quite quickly when using them as outdoor play shoes in rough conditions, or when the size is too small and toenails cut against the front of the upper leather. The soft leather design is susceptible to tears or holes if used for scrambling in outdoor gravel environments or toes are dragged on bikes on pavement. They will not have the same durability as a synthetic running shoe, but they can last you years and years depending on your usage and wear habits. Think of them as leather gloves for your feet!

Care Tips for Suede 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 do not 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 across the top of the toes, 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 won't hurt it). Let the stuffing sit in the shoes overnight to stretch the leather.

MAINTENANCE:

Use a suede brush to remove dirt. You can also choose to use a suede protector spray, such as Bee Natural Suede Protector, which should be reapplied after each brushing. While not necessary, it will help keep your shoes looking new over time. Do not use generic leather care products on suede, but only those specifically formulated for suede. Products for full grain or smooth leather will be too oily and may permanently darken and matt suede fibers. 

WASHING:

When a suede brush is not enough, you can use a damp cloth or hand wash your suede shoes with a gentle shampoo and cool water.  We do not recommend frequent washing of any leather product because it will strip the leather of it's natural oils and cause it 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, but you can speed up the drying process by stuffing them with old newspapers and replacing the paper twice a day.
