Quick Overview

The North Star is a longtime favorite with a lace side closures and genuine sheepskin innersoles and cuffs. The cuff can be laced up for a taller boot or laced down for a cozy winter shoe that can easily slip on and off for conveneince. Made from the softest, formaldehyde-free leather, these boots are sure to please! Soft soles, lightweight, stylish and warm—all in one package!

Please specify if you want the boots laced up or down when you order, as lace length differs for each. If you specify alternate length laces then we will include extra laces and instructions so you can try them both ways.

North Star Instructions Cuff Down


  • Soft rubber Vibram Geo soles—durable and flexible.
  • Allows natural foot movement and development.
  • Genuine sheepskin innersole and cuff for added warmth.
  • Smooth leather upper is not lined, making this a cozy winter shoe or an outdoor play boot for mild/moderate winter conditions.
  • Can be worn with or without socks.
  • Made from premium formaldehyde-free leather.
  • Handcrafted in USA.

Designed for moderately cold weather. This boot has genuine sheep fleece on the cuff and foot bed, making it an excellent choice as a winter shoe and short snow playtimes. Warm, but not over-heated! If you plan for your kids to wear very thick socks with these boots, we recommend you order a size larger in a wide width.

If you are looking for an even warmer boot then you can order a Design-Your-Own North Star that is fully lined, or you can check out our fully lined Kids Phoenix boots.

Please be warned that although our boots will keep moisture out to some degree, they are not waterproof and can become soaked through after extended hours in snowy/wet conditions. Although our boots make excellent play shoes, they are not intended for severely cold or wet climates.

For detailed instructions on how to measure your child's foot, please view our How-To Sizing Guide.


SANDAL SIZING: Sandals tend to run big since they are usually worn without socks. If your child falls between two sizes, choose the smaller size.

BOOT SIZING: Boots tend to run small due to sheepskin lining and (often) thicker socks. It is usually safe to go up at least one size when buying Soft Star boots for your child.  The North Star is a more "fitted" style, so order a wide if you plan to wear with thick socks or if you want a roomy fit.

MOCCASIN NOTES: The good thing about soft, moccasin-style shoes (like the Roo or Viley) is that extra length is generally not a problem, so you can often buy with growing room. Your child's foot will slide right to the front of our moccasins and the excess length will be in the back behind their ankle—no worries about tripping over extra length at the toe. Think of it like a glove for their feet. The moc style shoe is very forgiving if too big, which is a good thing if you are on a budget.

If your child has thick or chubby feet, be sure to indicate you need a wide width. If your child has EXTRA wide feet, please read this.

All 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 simulate barefoot conditions. Soft Star Shoes are designed wider, with flexible soft soles and natural breathable materials. All our soles are as lightweight and flexible as possible while still providing the protection needed.

Our shoes have soft, flexible & protective rubber soling. Sizes 4-7 are low profile, whereas sizes 8 and up are slightly thicker to support the heavier weight of growing children. After a few days, the flat soles will mold to your child's foot while providing the protection of a sturdy, non-slip shoe.
