One pair of our genuine sheepskin innersoles to keep feet protected, dry and comfortable. Sheepskin's natural wicking action pushes away moisture to keep feet dry in the summer and cozy in the winter. You can add these innersoles to any of our shoes that are made with plain suede innersoles.

How to glue Basic Sheepskin Innersoles into your shoe:
- Check for fit before gluing. When inserted into your shoe, the innersole should reach the front edge without bunching or leaving a gap. Wrinkles can lead to permanent creases, so make sure it lays flat.
- If your innersoles are too big then you can cut away the excess with scissors. If it helps, turn your shoe upside-down and lay the innersole on the outside of the sole to see where you need to trim. Please note that trimmed innersoles are non-returnable.
- Once fitted, add a drop of adhesive to the leather underside of your innersole, where the ball of your foot would lie. It only takes a small dab of glue to keep the innersole in place, and most household glues or double-sided tape work great.
- Fold the innersole lengthwise (like a taco) with the glue on the outside and carefully slide it into the shoe. When you are sure the innersole is placed properly, press down firmly on the sheepskin over the glue or tape.
- Lift up the back of the innersole and add adhesive to the underside of the heel. Press into place.
- Let the shoes sit overnight before wearing, or as long as your glue needs to set. Re-glue as needed.

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. Remove shoes and socks and place your child's bare foot so that the heel is barely touching a wall.
- 2. Place a book on the floor, parallel to the wall, so that it is barely touching the front of the longest toe.
- 3. Move your child's foot away carefully and measure the distance from the book to the wall.
- 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.
Printable Stand-On Size Guides
We recommend using the measuring method shown above for the most accurate sizing, but if you'd like a simpler method (especially when measuring squirmy children) then you may want to try our printable size guides. Just print the guide below and follow the instructions on the page.
Note: before you print these guides, 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."
Use the chart below to compare our innersole options and choose the best innersole for your shoe.
We strongly recommend waiting to break-in your shoes before adding sheepskin innersoles. The shoes may feel too tight otherwise and lead you to believe you need a larger size, but they will loosen up with a little wear. The sheepskin fleece will also become thinner after wearing them a few weeks.
