Running Green: Soft Star Shoes at the Portland Shamrock Run

We're very excited to announce that Soft Star will have an exhibition booth at the Portland Shamrock Run Fitness Fair this weekend! For anyone in the Portland, Oregon area, this is a great opportunity to try on our shoes and ask questions about how we make them. We'll have a full selection of moccasins and casual shoes for kids and adults, and of course plenty of RUNAMOCS! Our running guru, Elf Todd, will also be on hand to discuss his experiences with minimalist/barefoot running.

Portland's annual Shamrock Run is more than just a race—it's a full St. Patty's day celebration that includes chowder, music and beer. Now in its 35th year, the run is expecting to draw a crowd of 35,000. The Shamrock Fitness Fair is a public event that will be held on Friday and Saturday (before the Sunday race) and will feature fitness products, games, contests, a Leprechaun Lane for kids and hourly entertainment on stage.

Be sure to wear your green!
