Quick Overview

Our Metro design features an interior seam for a clean and elegant appearance that is ideal for both casual wear or dressier occasions. Choose your own colors and motifs to personalize this fashionable shoe for any occasion. Closure options include a real buckle or a Velcro strap with a faux buckle that can be easily removed for a simpler look.


The sole for this shoe can be made with either our 4mm Vibram Cherry sole or our natural tough leather sole. The 4mm Vibram Cherry sole used on this shoe is lightweight with excellent abrasion and slip-resistant characteristics—comfortable, yet durable for everyday use. Our tough leather sole is thinner, more flexible and provides a wide range of barefoot movement with excellent groundfeel. Note: the tough leather sole may become very slippery on surfaces that are smooth and wet.

Details

  • Interior seam for classy, fashionable look.
  • Choose between 4mm Vibram rubber Cherry sole or our natural bullhide leather sole (formerly called "tough leather sole).
  • Buckles have a small piece of elastic so the strap flexes with the natural movement of your foot. This flex also makes it possible to pull your shoe on/off without opening and closing the buckle each time. 
  • The Velcro strap has a faux buckle which can be easily removed—a nice option if you often find yourself sitting cross-legged on floors. Velcro straps are fast and super easy to put on/off.
  • Choose from your own colors, cutouts or appliqués
  • Handcrafted in USA from premium, formaldehyde-free leathers.
  • We can make most shoes within 4 business days (some exceptions apply).
  • Design-Your-Own shoes in like-new condition are fully returnable/exchangeable according to the terms of our return policy.

Product Tags

Other people marked this product with these tags:

Use spaces to separate tags. Use single quotes (') for phrases.

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.

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.

Care Tips for Full Grain Leather 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 don't 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 in the toe box area, 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 cannot hurt it!  Let the shoes sit stuffed overnight to stretch.

MAINTENANCE:

The full grain leather we use is naturally water resistant. Clean as needed with water dampened rag and let air dry. Condition the leather as often as desired with any quality leather dressing. We highly recommend Bee Natural Amore for general conditioning or Rain & Snow for enhanced water resistance. The color on shiny metallic shoes will eventually patina with use into an antique wear look - this can be accelerated with repeated use to water and high wear (e.g. scuffing toes).

WASHING:

You can use a damp cloth, or if needed you can hand wash your leather shoes using a gentle shampoo and cool water.  We don't recommend frequent washing of any leather product as it strips the leather of it's natural oils and tends 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 - you can speed up the drying by stuffing with old newspapers and replacing the paper 2x a day.
