What does Softstar do? We make minimal shoes for happy, healthy feet! Every one of our shoes is handcrafted at our Oregon, USA workshop.

We work hard to make Softstar a socially and environmentally responsible company, as well as giving a good experience to both our employees and our customers.

Our Core Values

  1. Make our workshop a wonderful place to work: A creative, energizing and efficient workspace. An open, honest atmosphere where we work with mutual respect and dignity.  A place where our families and community are welcome and integrated.

  2. Share the handcrafted experience with our customers making unique, beautiful, comfortable and quality footwear while encouraging direct interaction via excellent customer service

  3. Walk lightly on the earth: Conserve raw materials  by thoughtful use.  Minimize our environmental footprint by reducing waste, reusing and recycling.
