Details

Let's face it, sometimes you just need a single shoe and you don't want to pay the full price for the pair. Sometimes a shoe gets lost, sometimes one gets damaged (we know, dogs love our natural leather) and sometimes medical conditions leave people with a need for just one.

Since we make all of our shoes by hand at our Oregon workshop, we can easily make just one left or right shoe for you at half the cost of the pair! Here's how it works:

  1. Choose which shoe you need (left or right) from the options above and add this virtual "product" to your cart.
  2. Pick any other shoe on our site and add it to your cart. That shoe will automatically be deducted to half the price and we'll only make one for you.

Terms and Details:

  • Because every shoe is hide specific, once you place your order for a single shoe the order cannot be cancelled.
  • Orders for single shoes are non-returnable and non-refundable. Please contact us with any sizing questions before placing an order: elves@softstarshoes.com or 541-753-5845.

  • Sizing Tip: If you would like to be sure of the size then we recommend ordering a full pair of shoes to try on for fit. You can then return them for a full refund (as long as they still look new) and order a non-returnable single shoe. We offer free domestic shipping from our workshop, so you'll only have to pay the charge of shipping the pair back to us.

  • If you are trying to match a lost or damaged design-your-own shoe that we made for you in the past, it would help if you could email us a photo of the shoe you still have so we can match small details like the thread color, insole color, star motif, etc. Please note that our natural leather can vary between hides, so colors and grain texture may differ slightly from your original shoe.

  • Adding this single shoe product to your cart tells us you want every shoe on your order to be single. If you would like to order a full pair in addition to a single shoe, please place another order for it. We'll be happy to combine shipping on multiple orders if you ask us to do so in the "Notes" field above.

  • The following shoes, which are pre-made, are only sold as complete pairs and cannot be separated into single shoes:
    • Shoes from our Sole Mate category
    • Clearance Sale Shoes
    • Limited Quantity Shoes
    • Third-party footwear, such as Padraig slippers and Tabor Desert Moccasins.

Find Your Child's Size!

You can measure your children's feet at home using a book, a ruler and a wall. You can then see where the measurement fits on our charts below to find the recommended Softstar shoe size.

Note: we no longer recommend tracing 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 child's feet:

  1. 1. Remove shoes and socks and place your child's bare foot so that the heel is barely touching a wall.
  2. 2. Place a book on the floor, parallel to the wall, so that it is barely touching the front of the longest toe.
  3. 3. Move your child's foot away carefully and measure the distance from the book to the wall.
  4. 4. Look for your measurement on the sizing charts below to find the recommended shoe size.

     

  • Wiggle/growing room is already taken into account.
  • If your child is on the border between two sizes then we recommend the larger size.

 

 

SANDAL SIZING: Our child sandals tend to run big since they are open-toed and open-heeled.We recommend ordering one size smaller than the recommended size for sandals.

BOOT SIZING: Boots tend to run small due to sheepskin lining and (often) thicker socks. It is usually safe to go up at least one size when buying Soft Star boots for your child.  The North Star is a more "fitted" style, so order a wide if you plan to wear with thick socks or if you want a roomy fit.

MOCCASIN NOTES: The good thing about soft, moccasin-style shoes (like the Roo or Viley) is that extra length is generally not a problem, so you can often buy with growing room. Your child's foot will slide right to the front of our moccasins and the excess length will be in the back behind their ankle—no worries about tripping over extra length at the toe. Think of it like a glove for their feet. The moc style shoe is very forgiving if too big, which is a good thing if you are on a budget.

If your child has thick or chubby feet, be sure to indicate you need a wide width. If your child has EXTRA wide feet, please read this.

  4. 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 and Rogue casual shoes, which run a bit small.
