"Boss of the Moss" Mick Dodge Wears Soft Star Shoes on National Geographic Series
Have you heard of The Legend of Mick Dodge? It's a documentary television series produced by National Geographic that follows the adventures of a man who abandoned civilization 25 years ago to live in the forests of the Olympic Peninsula.
Mick Dodge lives off the land without any modern technology, and he prefers to walk and run barefoot to reconnect with the earth. When he does wear shoes, however, he wears Soft Star Original RunAmocs!
Mick has been a long-time fan of Soft Star Shoes (originally introduced to us by Barefoot Ken Bob Saxon many years ago). We've had some fun and engaging conversations with him over the years, and we're flattered that our simple handmade leather moccasins meet his criteria for living naturally in the wilderness. Mick has always held a special place in our hearts and we're super excited about the success of the show!
Season two of The Legend of Mick Dodge will premiere September 30, 2014 on the National Geographic Channel. Here's a fun clip, which shows his shoes at 1:49 (also shown in the still image below). We hope you'll check it out!
