Sizing Guide

Details

If you've every wished you could go barefoot all summer, dream no more! The Solstice offers everything you could want in a sandal: a lightweight and open design, a classic and versatile silhouette, and a secure fit for free and easy movement. The natural leather uppers feature clean lines accented with contrast stitching, and the closed back and adjustable strap secure the sandal to your foot (unlike that basket full of old flip-flops you've been meaning to phase-out). Perfect for treks to your favorite forest swim spot, strolls to the local ice cream shop, or dancing the night away at your next blowout barbecue, the Solstice just might become your next summer romance! 

  • Flexible, minimal Vibram rubber sole molds to your foot
  • Buckle closure for adjustable fit
  • Add a Flora stitched-on petal motif for a rich leather accent
  • Handcrafted in USA from premium, responsibly-sourced leathers
  • Custom shoes in like-new condition are fully returnable/exchangeable according to the terms of our return policy.

Please note: the Solstice style runs big so we recommend going down a full size from your regular Softstar shoe size. See the video below for sizing tips.

Softstar does it again! Review by Jocelyn
Rating
I ordered these in red and they are perfect. I have not worn another pair of shoes since they arrived. After about two days of feeling a little snug, they have stretched out to envelop my feet like a soft cloud. What will I do when summer is over? (Oh, I know, switch back to my Softstar chukkas!)

Highly recommend Review by Melanie A

I just got these in the mail and after putting them on I'm not taking them off. I never expected to love them this much or to fit so perfectly. The sizing recommendation was absolutely spot on, and they were made and shipped with lightening speed. A perfect barefoot Sandal that still looks fashionable. For reference I am usually an 8.5_9 narrow and ordered the 7u (8 womens) regular width. Fit like they were custom made specifically for me. (Posted on 3/20/17)
Beautiful and comfortable Review by OctoberAmy

I like these shoes very much, the leather is buttery soft and supple. I got the shiny silver color, which looks great with everything. I think they are very feminine. I wear 8.5 in regular shoes, Narrow when I can find it. So I got the 7U Narrow, per the elves' recommendation, and they are a perfect fit. Any longer and I would catch the toes when I walked. (Since they are hand making them, I question why make them "run big"? Why not just adjust their pattern instead of telling everybody to size down??). Now, I was a little put off by the pointy toe shape in a "naturalist" shoe, but they are open, and the leather is so soft it was not an issue. (However I returned the closed toe Merry Janes for that reason...only to reorder later after I discovered how soft the leather is). This was my first order from Soft Star, and my brain still thinks "oh, I have a shoe on, I will strike my heel!" So I'm re-training myself. Also I have plantar fasciitis and barefoot feels best, but my foot is not really "itself" now. So I haven't worn them a lot, just 3 or 4 times. Will probably be back for more next summer.

Wonderful Review by Kathleen

My teenage daughter and I both have a pair of these. They are so comfortable, and look nice on any occasion. We both wear them every chance we have. I have foot and back problems, and they have both improved SO much since switching to Soft Star Shoes! I wear them exclusively now! (Posted on 5/23/16)
So comfortable and cute! Review by Kim

I love my Soft Star sandals. They are so soft and comfortable. And the flower appliqué makes them super cute. I've gotten comments on them when we I've worn them. This is my third pair of Soft Star shoes and I love them all!! (Posted on 5/19/16)
Fantastic as always!!! Review by Gretchen

I'm becoming a Soft Star shoe hoarder!!! I ordered a super cute DYO pair of sandals for my son's wedding. I had so many people ask me how I found such a perfectly coordinated pair of shoes. They really dressed up my outfit. I was comfortable all afternoon and was able to enjoy the wedding and not worry about my feet! (Posted on 5/19/16)

Perfect matching comfort Review by Nana P

I had several tops with no matching shoes. Soft Star solved my needs. I usually wear an 8.5. I ordered these in a 7. Mine are Kelly Green in front, bright blue in back with a yellow flower. Love ,love, love these shoes and so does every one that sees them. I can't tell you how many times I say "Soft Star shoes.com" when I wear them. Going to Branson Mo. today, I am wearing my Soft Stars so I know what I will be talking about with total strangers. (Posted on 5/7/16)
Comfy Sandal! Review by Maura

I love, love, love these sandals. The first time I bought them, I ordered one size smaller. They were still a little big. This year I ordered another pair, but two sizes smaller than my normal size, and now they are perfect! (Posted on 5/5/16)
My Favorite Sandal Review by Dianne
Rating
This is my second Soft Star Shoe and I'm in love. I can't say enough good things about it. I did go a size down but stayed with the regular width b/c my foot is not real wide. The fit is perfect! What I love the most about Soft Star shoes is the feel of it when walking. The freedom in my feet. The way it was always meant to be. (Posted on 11/14/15)
Love these shoes! Review by Angie
Rating
These are the cutest shoes and they are so comfy! I was concerned about the back of the shoe digging into my heel and causing a blister like most shoes do. So I hesitated on this one. Well. let me tell you, I don't even feel the back of the shoe. The leather is butter soft and feels so good to the skin! Can't wait to get another color! So far this is my favorite shoe from Soft Star! Thanks for making these awesome shoes! I can't wait to share the comfort with others.

I love these sandals! The leather is so soft and didn't need any breaking in. I definitely needed the whole size smaller than my normal size. Thank you elves! (Posted on 8/27/15)
Beautiful! Review by Diana

Finally a gorgeous shoe, that is comfortable from front to back. Having a choice in colors is a wonderful feature.. I am always getting stopped regarding the nice style and the color coordination which is shiny pewter and platinum. very nice minimal shoe for dress up or casual...will order another pair!

Love these! Review by Kikki

I have these in red, and not only are they incredibly comfortable, but I get SO MANY COMPLIMENTS every time I wear them! I even have women occasionally stop me to compliment my sandals as I am walking down the street. I have been wearing my Solstice Sandals all summer, and I have directed several people to your site to check them out. (Posted on 8/20/15)
Nice sandal, sizing is still off... Review by Michigan Minimalist
Rating
Let me start off by saying I pretty much only wear Soft Stars and Vibrams - so regardless of their slight flaws, they are still the best shoes out there.

Soft Stars sizing however could really use some work. I watched their video on the sandals, and according to the video I ordered one size down, and wide. I wear wides anyways. The shoe is still a bit too long, and dare I say too wide?

My wide Portlanders fit a bit too wide too, but my wide ballerines are barely wide enough. Who knows, I just hope that someday the sizing gets a bit more consistent or customizable. (Posted on 8/6/15)
Great looking, comfortable sandal! Review by Janet
Rating
I love these shoes! I got them in shiny red; they make me feel great, they go with (almost) everything, and I get tons of compliments!

Follow the sizing recommendations: I have wide toes and wear size 8.5/39 in "regular" shoes. I got these sandals in 6W, and they fit perfectly.

I bought a second pair in shiny pewter! (Posted on 6/3/15)
Finally, an adult sandal! Review by Dorayme
Rating
I have been looking for Soft Star Shoes to make an adult sandal for years! My children wore and loved your shoes and I too have enjoyed them, but living in the Southern part of the country, I have more hot months than cooler ones so the closed up shoes were only so comfortable for me through the hottest months. I yearned for these shoes, and let me say, they do not disappoint! I love how they hug my feet and give me a cute sandal that transitions through most occasions I would throw at them. The design keeps them on, and secure, yet enough of the foot is uncovered that they have a feminine and chic look, and are COOL. I'm looking forward to adding a few more pair to my collection!

Find Your Size!

You can measure your 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 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. 1. Remove shoes and socks and place your bare foot so that the heel is barely touching a wall.
  2. 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. 3. Step away carefully and measure the distance from the book to the wall.
  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.

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 then you may want to try our printable size guide. Just print the guide below and follow the instructions on the page.

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."

 

Care Tips for Full Grain (smooth) Leather Shoes

WHEN THEY FIRST ARRIVE:

Softstar Shoes are made from eco-friendly leathers tanned in the USA. Leather is a natural product and some variation in texture and hide markings is to be expected. Because we use leather colored with non-toxic food grade dyes, there will likely be some initial color transfer to your socks or skin if your shoes become damp. This will decrease with use, but we don't recommend wearing your new Softstars 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 dry cloth. Push the cloth tightly into the front of the shoe and let sit stuffed overnight to stretch. Do not use a damp cloth as the water can stain the leather or innersole of some leather types, rendering it non-returnable.

 

MAINTENANCE:

Most full grain leather we use is naturally water resistant, but our special vegetable-tanned leather (available only by custom selection on some of our design-your-own shoes) is a "naked" leather and will stain from water alone. You can clean shoes as needed with water dampened cloth and let air dry, but please note if you do this on vegetable-tanned leather then you will need to wet/stain the entire shoe to avoid water marks. Condition the leather as often as desired with any quality leather dressing, but be careful to keep it away from the edges of your rubber soles. Do not use mink oil on your shoes, as it 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 or Nikwax Full Grain Waterproofing on smooth leather for enhanced water resistance. The color on shiny metallic shoes will eventually patina with use into an antique wear look, which can be accelerated with repeated use to water and high wear (e.g. scuffing toes).

 

WASHING:

We do not recommend frequent washing of any leather product as it strips the leather of it's natural oils and tends to dry stiffer. For all of our leathers (except vegetable-tanned) you can clean by hand with a damp cloth, or if needed you can hand wash your leather shoes using a gentle shampoo and cool water. Let them air dry. Do not attempt to dry your shoes by exposing them to high heat, such as a clothes dryer, a hair dryer or by leaving them on a radiator or next to a fire. Doing so may damage leather or rubber soles.

 

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. Shoes with sheepskin can take 3-4 days to air dry if fully submerged in water, but you can speed up the drying by stuffing with old newspapers and replacing the paper twice a day.
