Note: Adult Roo moccasins require a thicker grade of leather for the cuff, so less color options are available for the back of this shoe. Unless otherwise noted, the button will match the trim color.
Our standard Roo moccasins are made with traditional suede soles that are flexible and soft. This sole works well for both indoor and dry outdoor use. Suede is naturally durable and non-skid. Over time this soft leather will lovingly wear into a smoother, moisture-resistant surface. If you choose our Grippy Sole option, the suede sole will be bonded to a thin rubber fabric for increased traction, water resistance and durability. As the rubber layer eventually wears out (hopefully after a very long time), you will see the suede sole appear underneath it.
Inside the shoe you will find generous sheepskin innersoles that keep the foot protected, dry and 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, making the shoe easy to slip on and stay on.
Please use table below to best find your corresponding size. For best results, rely on your standard US shoe size. We find this to be the best place to start for adults and generally the most reliable method.
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.
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.

The following list shows all of the leather colors used in our workshop.
You will notice that our smooth, full grain leathers come in a variety of grades and styles. We've found some of these to work well on certain shoes, but not on others. For this reason, when you choose to design your own shoe with smooth leather you will only see certain types available.

Care Tips for Suede Shoes
WHEN THEY FIRST ARRIVE:
Soft Star Shoes are made from eco-friendly, tanned in USA leathers. Leather is a natural product and some variation in texture and markings is to be expected. Because we use natural food grade dyes in our leather, there will likely be some initial color transference to your socks or skin if your shoes become damp. This will decrease with use, but please do not wear your new Soft Stars with your favorite white socks the first time you take them for a spin!
If your shoes are a little snug at first across the top of the toes, you can gently stretch them by stuffing the toe box with a slightly damp rag. Push the cloth tightly into the front of the shoe (don't worry, you won't hurt it). Let the stuffing sit in the shoes overnight to stretch the leather.
Use a suede brush to remove dirt. You can also choose to use a suede protector spray, such as Bee Natural Suede Protector, which should be reapplied after each brushing. While not necessary, it will help keep your shoes looking new over time. Do not use generic leather care products on suede, but only those specifically formulated for suede. Products for full grain or smooth leather will be too oily and may permanently darken and matt suede fibers. Please do NOT use mink oil on any suede shoes - it will mat the fibers, and will break down the adhesive bond in soling on styles that have bonded soles.
When a suede brush is not enough, you can use a damp cloth or hand wash your suede shoes with a gentle shampoo and cool water. We do not recommend frequent washing of any leather product because it will strip the leather of it's natural oils and cause it to dry stiffer.
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 and do NOT put shoes the dryer. Shoes with sheepskin can take 3-4 days to air dry if fully submerged in water, but you can speed up the drying process by stuffing them with old newspapers and replacing the paper twice a day.
