Sizing Guide

Details

We love innovation. But in some cases, the best way to move forward, is to take a step back. The Roo moccasin is footwear uninvented. Made with natural materials that are high in quality and few in number, these shoes are built to let you fully experience the world through which you move.

Smooth leather uppers wrap your foot in rich, breathable comfort. The traditional suede soles are flexible and soft, well-suited to both indoor and dry outdoor use. Suede is naturally durable and initially non-skid, wearing into a smoother, moisture-resistant surface over time. Don’t worry, you can always restore the soles’ non-skid properties by gently rubbing the sole with a wire brush!

Inside the shoe, luxurious sheepskin innersoles embrace your feet and keep them protected, dry, and oh-so-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 for a secure fit that’s easy on, easy off…that is, if you ever decide to take them off!

  • 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 off
  • Can be worn with or without socks
  • 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

Customer Reviews

Comfortable and Healthy! Review by Roman
Rating
These are the best shoes I've ever seen. I feel every rock or bump I step on, which makes me more aware of surrounding and meanwhile provides me with therapeutic soles massage/acupressure which benefit all internal organs and systems. I bought two (2) if these so far and wear them every day, even with my suit to the office strolling lightly through Manhattan even when pavement is slightly wet after the rain (no leaks). I feel more warmth or chill from the ground as it temperature changes through the day and my entire walk changed since I no longer have an "armor" on my soles (as the most of the shoes do), I started to appreciate how every step can be done, soft or hard (and I used to walk hard because of the conventional shoes), and now every such a hard step hammers through my bones to my spine and back of the head. With these shoes I have changed this habit naturally and now my walk is light and my posture has changed and it eliminated all kind of numbness or fatigue in the back (not even talking about pain - which is completely absent). This is a great product to begin a healthy life with minimum effort providing you with massage and earthing. I would walk bare feet if I could, but I suppose it will be too hippy for my job, but with these shoes it allows me to be natural in the middle of civilized stone jungles. (Posted on 6/20/17)
Wonderful shoes for a toddler with special feet Review by Lauren
Rating
My toddler has very unusual feet due to a rare, non-hereditary genetic condition. She was nearing 2 years old and had never had a pair of shoes. Thanks to Soft Star, our daughter now has shoes that fit! They are soft, pliable, and adorable in the pink and silver we chose for her. The open sides make them comfortable in warmer weather, while the waterproof sole option makes them sturdy enough for our PNW raininess. We love them, and more importantly, so does our little one!

Note from the Elves: Thanks Lauren - we are so glad these worked well for your little one! To clarify for other folks reading this review - the standard suede sole that comes on the custom Roo moccasin is fine on damp surfaces - but will absorb moisture over time with exposure to water. The waterproof option referred to here is the Rambler version with a waterproof sole: http://www.softstarshoes.com/custom-kids-rambler-visualizer.html

Love these moccasins! Review by Katie

I bought my first pair about two years ago and wore them every day. Even in the summer. I finally quite litterally walked right through them so I bought another pair and they are just as lovely! (Posted on 3/31/17)
Delicious! Review by Karen
Rating
I love my Roos! I chose all black, no motif, and sheepskin lining. They are truly comfy, especially in bare feet. I wear American women's size 8, regular width, so I measured the length of my feet like Softstar recommended. I ordered size 7U, and they feel a bit roomy width-wise. I may order narrow next time. I ordered by phone and they arrived much sooner than I was told they would. I found the customer service to be top-notch. I have ordered again and will continue to do so. I love my elf shoes!

This company is above anything I can possibly say, they are amazing and wonderful and above competent to say the least. The shoes are soo cute, soft and flexible. I will never go back to hard shoes again for my littles. (Posted on 2/17/17)
LOVE! Review by Sarah

I never liked the look of baby moccasins...especIally for boys. But these are great! So easy to slip on. The elastic is great. And the quality is amazing! So jealous of my twins now! I've got to get a pair of flats for myself soon! (Posted on 1/26/17)
In love with these ! Review by Pamela
Rating
This is my 4th pair of Roos: 2 Elk, 1 suede, and now, this...my happiest feet except for barefoot. I usually wear a 9.5 to 10 shoe ( when I have to), but found the 8 in these works well.I did need the 9s in the suede, because it is stiffer and in my first Elks ( but these are a bit sloppy ... perfect for thick socks) (Posted on 12/14/16)

As usual, we'll love these, but... Review by Chicmomma31
Rating
We are on our second pair of roos and my four year old wears them as slippers around the house. I purchase the suede soles so she can twirl and pretend to be a ballerina. The first pair I bought were the smooth leather. This time, my daughter wanted to buy metallic because I recently purchased a pair of pewter metallic roos for myself. While my daughter loves these, I am quite disappointed that the metallic began wearing off around the base and tip of the shoe within less than 48 hours of wear. For the price and quality I have experienced previously, this was quite surprising to me. I contacted the Elves and they told me this is normal. I'll certainly continue to buy Soft Star shoes, but I'll be staying away from the metallic because it doesn't wear well. (Posted on 1/17/16)
2nd pair, we love them!! Review by Mel
Rating
My daughter is on her 2nd pair of these mocs. The first pair has suede soles and held up wonderfully despite our daily outdoor adventures. This time I chose grippy soles and to my relief they are thin and very flexible. The leather is soft and high quality, and the craftsmanship is beautiful. Her first pair, now outgrown, could be passed on to another child and then passed on again! In the age of mass-produced crap, here you have found a company of people who actually try to earn your money with outstanding products, service, and ethical business practices. 5 stars all day.

Great shoes! Review by Jules

My daughter got the grippy sole and the smooth leather to accommodate the wet weather of the northwest. She loves being able to choose her color and shape for button and can put them on herself. This is her fourth pair because we love them! (Posted on 10/18/15)
Really comfortable shoes! (according to my son) Review by Rejoicing
Rating
We bought these shoes for my son's indoor school shoes at a Waldorf school. He thinks they are very comfortable and loves wearing them! He is in an upper elementary grade. When grandma saw them she wanted a pair also--it's on her Christmas wish list! (Posted on 10/15/15)
Happy Munchkins! Review by Lucea
Rating
I first bought Soft Stars at our local co-ops as gifts for babies and children. When they became unavailable at the various co-ops, I was very excited to buy directly from the Elves!
The feet of my family are very happy! We all wear Soft Stars!
Recently, my 3 grandchildren were due for new Roos. They were really happy to be able to pick out their own colors! With the sizing guide, the fit is perfect. They have been wearing them everywhere, no longer just as slippers. The smooth leather is easy to keep clean, even when they run through the woods or go into town! The only other shoes I have seen on them lately are cleats for soccer. It will be a sad day when it snows and they will only be able to be worn inside!
THANK YOU, Elves!

Fantabulous Review by Mark
Rating
These are the absolute best shoes I have ever worn. I wear them indoors and outdoors. What I like best is that they protect my feet without any restrictions. I wear them on grass, gravel, sidewalks, pretty much anywhere that is dry. The fit was perfect from day one. I will absolutely be buying more! (Posted on 8/25/15)
I Love my Moccasins Review by Christina

I truly love my Elf Shoes... As a result of a car accident several years ago I have right foot drop, and before discovering Soft Star Shoes I had to wear different shoes on each foot. Now I have matching shoes and very, very comfortable feet. (Posted on 1/23/15)
Fantastic! Review by Sarah

We fell in love with another brand of leather soled shoes when our oldest was an infant, but found out that brand did not hold up well when our girls started walking. A while back I was looking for a pair of earthing shoes when I found Soft Star. I have been very impressed with with how well the soft star Mocs have held up as one of my daughters wears hers all the time: indoors and outdoors (even to bed!). I just got a pair of DYO Mocs for my four year old with platinum back, sage front and a rocket ship (love the rocket ship!) and they are absolutely adorable! (Posted on 12/24/14)
best 'shoes' ever Review by Goat

I got these shoes for casual wear and around the house. I've been wearing them more and more because they aren't shoes, they're like second skins on my feet... with just enough slack. (Posted on 12/10/13)
Best shoes I own!! Review by Megi
Rating
I love these shoes. They are the most comfortable shoe ever. They don't make my feet super hot in summer. They do keep my feet warm in winter. They are not great for mud, snow, and slush... But they are fine for rain on pavement and at least 3 season outdoor wear... 4 if you don't live somewhere with a snow season! I originally got them as house shoes I could run outside in if I had to. I do have a crazy pink and leopard pair for that, but these are my go to shoe for daily wear out of the house. I have arthritis from my back down and have had such improvement since switching to all minimal all the time footwear.

The con? I have five pairs. They are addictive. (Posted on 7/18/13)

Unsure about your size? Our printable guides will help you find the best fit for your feet! Just print the guide for the appropriate age group below and follow the instructions on the page (if you don't have access to a printer then click here or scroll down for another option).

   

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."


No Printer? No Problem!

You can still measure feet using the method below (also shown in our sizing videos). You can then scroll down and see where your measurements fall on our sizing charts to find the recommended shoe size. All you need is a book, a tape measure and a wall.

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. Remove shoes and socks and place the bare foot so that the heel is barely touching a wall.
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. Step away carefully and measure the distance from the book to the wall.
4. Scroll down and look for this measurement on the sizing charts below to find the recommended shoe size.

Which style is best for your child?


Use our handy chart below to compare our child shoe styles and find the best fit for your needs. Remember that all Softstar shoes are made from soft, eco-friendly leather and lightweight, flexible soles for healthy foot development. For children in particular, this is important as the bones in their feet are still forming and not fully ossified until ages 9-11.  We believe shoes should provide protection from the elements while doing their best to mimic barefoot conditions.

Description Soft and flexible all around. A cozy slip-on moccasin that allows feet to move and spread naturally. Similar to our Roo moccasin, but with a rubber sole for better durability on the playground. The first shoe made by Softstar in 1985, and still a family favorite! Upper is made from a single piece of leather stretched around the shoe for a classy fitted design. A traditional mary jane style shoe with adjustable buckle strap and stylish scallop trim. Based on our Classic design, but with an open toe and heel to keep feet cool on hot days.. Based on our Classic design, but with laces along the side and a genuine sheepskin cuff.
Best Use

 

Perfect for first walkers with flexibility for early foot development. Cozy to wear around the house and preferred by schools that require soft-soled classroom shoes. Also good for light outdoor play.

A more durable version of our Roo moccasin. Still a good first walker shoe and great for rough outdoor play. Also acceptable for schools that require soft classroom shoes. 

Great for outdoor play, but can also work for formal occasions with the right colors. A popular winter shoe, as the “closed” design helps keep out water, snow and debris. Adding sheepskin innersoles provides extra warmth on cold days.

Great for outdoor play or for dressier formal occasions.

Keeps kids cool on hot days! Open toe and heel not only provide ventilation, but also give a little more growing room before you need to size up.

Great for keeping feet warm on chilly days! Cuff can be worn down as a winter shoe, or pulled up around the lower calves like a boot.

Leather Uppers

Choose from Suede leather or Smooth Sublime* leather (a slightly softer, more felxible version of our Nova leather). Suede feels cozier, Sublime is easier to clean.

"My child has thick and/or wide feet. Will these work?" YES! Wide width options are available, and this flexible shoe stretches well to adapt to big feet. Elastic can also be adjusted after shoe is made if more ankle room is needed.
YES! Wide width options are available, and this shoe will stretch a little to adapt to big feet. Elastic can also be adjusted after shoe is made if more ankle room is needed.

Fitted design is not as accommodating to extra wide feet as our other styles, but wide width options are available. Laces or Velcro closure are recommended to allow most ankle room.

YES! Wide width options are available. This shoe's open front and adjustable strap allow this shoe to easily accommodate large or tall insteps.

Wide width option with laces or Velcro work well for most wide feet... better than the Classic, but not as roomy as a wide Roo or Rambler.

Fitted design is not as accommodating to extra wide feet as our other styles. Wide widths are available, but not with the fully lined* option (it is already made wide to account for the extra layer of sheepskin).


* This feature is only available on select collection colors, or when you design your own.
