It's college football season!

Our cozy town of Corvallis, Oregon is just a small dot on most maps, but when our local Oregon State Beavers play a home football game we start to look like like a major metropolitan city. The streets become flooded with our team's orange and black colors as every fan within a 100-mile radius heads into town to show their support. Tim, Soft Star's founder, can always be found right in the middle of the hype.

Tim rarely misses a game (usually nothing short of his daughters' weddings will pull him away) and he's proud to sport his team colors. As you may guess, he has made himself many different pairs of orange and black shoes over the years. He just put the finishing touches on his latest pair of Beaver shoes and we thought they were cool enough to share.

As our founder and the designer of many of our shoe styles, Tim has the ability to add special custom tweaks to his creations. With this pair of Dash RunAmocs, he double-stitched the thread in two parallel patterns. While it's just a subtle change, we thought it added a lot of character to the shoes.

What do you think about this design? We'd love to hear your thoughts.

And remember, you can always choose your own team colors for your shoes.

GO BEAVS!

    I love it, but you seem to have picked the wrong colors. They'd be so much cooler if they were green and yellow.

    I'd be all over them if they were available :)

    Glad you like them Allegra! This isn't a feature we offer yet, but we may consider it if enough people seem interested...

    Oh my, I would go crazy for double stitching if it were available! And there are many Baltimore Oriole's fans out here that would love Tim's shoe!

    I really like the contrast stitching! I'm not a sports fan, but it looks great as a general artistic feature. Brightly-colored mocs are so much fun; this would be a nice finishing touch to help bring the colors together.

    Down here in SEC country this would be fun. I would need purple and gold for LSU, of course.
