  • Breathe-O-Prene® liners wicks moisture and keeps dust and dirt away!
  • Genuine leather uppers, perforated for breathability.

The Moc3 utilizes Breathe-O-Prene® technology to provide a moisture-wicking and odor-resistant interior that hugs your foot from all sides. A layer of our LITE perforated leather protects the outer shell. The soft, minimal design of this shoes provides a maximum level of barefoot movement, and the extremely thin and pliable soles allow you to feel the texture of the ground under your feet in great detail. Weighing only 5oz, these shoes can be easily pulled on and off, and they roll up nicely to stuff into a pack or slide under a belt. Although the Moc3 was designed with runners in mind, it also makes an excellent and comfortable everday shoe. If you're looking for a truly barefoot experience with the most basic protection from the elements, then you've found your match!

Moc3 for Trail Running:

The thin 2mm soles on the Moc3 is suitable for most dirt, grass and moderate trails. Tough-footed barefooters will love them on rocky, technical trails. Since this shoe provides a very high level of groundfeel, beginners who have not yet strengthened their feet for barefoot-style running are advised to transition to rough/rocky surfaces slowly to avoid injury.

The Moc3 is not water resistant and is not recommended for stream crossing, though they are very easy to slip off and carry when you run through water.

Read a review from strayphoto.com that describes how the Moc3 performed on 500 miles of rough trails.

Moc3 Design:

This shoe is designed by veteran running shoe expert, Mike Friton. Mike has over 25 year experience in shoe design and technology, and is currently teaching shoe design at the Portland Art Institute. An avid runner, he spent his early years working in Bill Bowerman's laboratory and with elite runners. With a background in anthropology, he has been interested in historical and cultural evolution of footwear and has a passion for simple, foot healthy designs.

Fantabulous!Review by Janzo

Poor reviews because they are leather is stupid. Don't buy them if you don't like that they're made of leather! These are a marvelous shoe when road conditions don't allow me to be barefoot! I wear a fuel belt, take the bottles out, and roll up these beauties so I can slip them on when I run across dirt roads or chip-sealed roads here in Michigan. These are truly the next best thing to barefoot and I'll wear them no matter what they are made of! Thank you, Soft Star for making wonderful, LEATHER shoes that are lightweight, super comfortable, and just pure genius in their simplicity! (Posted on 3/7/14)
Love my Moc3 but is the vegan option gone?Review by José
Rating
I really like these shoes, but it seems that there is no more vegan option. That would be very sad. I guess I will have to hope for the pair that I have to last, and then look for an alternative. I guess I was hoping for an opposite trend. Five star for the vegan option, and for me, there is no other option.

Note from Soft Star: Thanks José for your feedback. We hope to bring back the Vegan option soon - we are working on a pattern change to make the toe seam more durable for the Vegan material. (Posted on 4/26/13)

I love this shoe! Super comfortable, like wearing a pair of socks. Super lightweight, I liked so much I got two pairs. My only complaint is that I think they might run large, I normally wear a 8.5 womens shoe, I bought the 7U and it was too large, however the shoe was so nice that my neigbor tried it on and loved it so now she has a new pair of shoes! I then ordered the 6U and they fit perfect. (Posted on 4/20/13)
Love the Moc3'sReview by Barefoot Kathleen

These feel like isotoner gloves on my feet and I love them! I still like to go totally barefoot when it is warm enough, but when the temps drop here in the winter, my Moc3 are the next best thing to totally bare. Will be going for a pair of reds next for a bit of variety in my life! :-} (Posted on 12/11/12)
Best minimalist shoe I've tried so farReview by Quinn
Rating
I usually run barefoot but I use the Moc3 for gravel and trail running. I got them in Aug 2011 and so far I've put over 200 miles on them. They're holding up well despite being used on some very rocky trails in Utah. I think they're perfect, even for rough trails. (Posted on 4/11/12)
yes, butReview by Lechuza

See, the bottoms of my feet feel so fabulous, finally. Connected with the earth yet not freezing and not cut to pieces. And my feet look so very beautiful. I do think that feet are intrinsically beautiful.
Now here is the hidden ugliness.There is between my lovely feet and the lovely leather of the poor animal who died to give his hide so I could run free, an nasty layer of stinging petro-chemical synthetic fabric. I detest this.
The bottoms of my feet feel lovely. The sides and tops feel stingy and nasty and horrible. Before my run/walk is over I have to take off my beautiful shoes and put up with the gravel hurting the soles of my feet because I can no longer stand the horror of the petro-chemical menace on my skin. And this is through organic cotton socks! WHY??? Why could it not have been wool? Already the shoes are expensive, so we are not worried about the plight of the poor. Since the shoes are made of the SKIN of animals, it is obvious we have dealt with the moral issue of animal rights, so why not wool, or maybe silk?

(SOFT STAR RESPONSE: Please note Soft Star removed last name and address provided by this reviewer for privacy reasons. We appreciate the suggestion to use natural materials as a liner, and did, in fact, consider alternatives. For this shoe to slip on and snug, the design required elastic properties which are not present in natural materials. ) (Posted on 3/15/12)
My Go-To ShoeReview by Dustin
Rating
Having to stop and explain my Fivefingers to almost anyone I ever met started to grow on my nerves and make me think twice before wearing them out in public. So I started looking for a more subtle shoe that still offered a comfortable, barefoot-like feel. I got more than I bargained for with the Moc3's which proved to be twice as comfortable as any pair of FiveFingers I'd owned, and infinitely more stylish (seriously, I wear these in black with dress slacks regularly). The Moc3s are perfect if you're looking for a minimal shoe with that intense, sock-like ground feel, while still providing stylish day-in, day-out wearability. I have a hard time putting anything else on now, and will definitely buy again.

I wound up being between sizes so I ended up going with the smaller of the two and couldn't be happier with the fit. (Posted on 2/14/12)
Ruby Red Slippers!Review by Brandon
Rating
Ruby Reds are what I hear them called as I run by other runners. I love the uniqueness of these shoes. I accidently ordered them one size too small and I thought all was lost until I put them on totally barefoot and they fit perfectly. A great shoe for treadmill, pavement, or dirt trail. In Michigan the winters can keep you from running barefoot, but this shoe allows for near perfect from and protection from the snow and cold. A great addition to any shoe collections.

Sizing Tips

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.

Leather Colors

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.

Moc3 Video

Although it was designed for barefoot/minimalist footwear runners, the Moc3 is so comfortable that it can cross over to everyday wear, yoga or other sports. Click  below for more background on the Moc3. We love it and hope you will, too!
