When the weather outside turns frightful, these boots are SO delightful! Phoenix uppers are made of nothing but the softest leather and are fully-lined with sheepskin to naturally wick away moisture for warm, dry feet. These boots also feature replaceable sheepskin innersoles for long-term comfort.

A zipper on the inside makes this boot easy to wear over or under pant legs, and our zero-drop Lightning Vibram sole provides excellent traction in mild to moderate winter conditions. Go ahead, don’t let cold weather stop your kids from “blazing” a trail!

(Please see care and sizing tips below to ensure proper sheepskin maintenance and a great fit!)

  • Premium blue leather uppers with cream sheepskin
  • Durable, flexible and lightweight soles
  • Zero drop Vibram Lightning sole measures 5mm thick, plus 6mm additional base soling material (plus sheepskin fluff)
  • Fully lined with genuine sheepskin featuring replaceable Sheepskin Plus Innersoles
  • Roomy toebox
  • Can be worn with or without socks
  • Handcrafted in USA from premium, responsibly-sourced leathers

Phoenix boots are only made in one width. New boots should fit snugly, as the natural sheepskin will stretch, but the length of the boot should not cause your child's toes to curl against the front seam—a sign that the size is too small. Please allow 1–2 weeks lead time for this product.

(Psst! Why should the kids have all the fun? To order this boot in a larger size, check out our Adult Phoenix Boots!)

Super warm winter boots Review by Jasmijn
My daughter (7) always has cold feet. That's why I choose for red Phoenix boots. Full lined and cozy. In the beginning she even worn them without socks to feel the soft fluff. Sole is quite stiff in the beginning. Especially when compared to North star boots. She loves to wear them. Mid winter she started complaining that te boots are starting toe slip from her feet whilst running. I tight a brown lace around her ankles to secure them better. I must say that the Y1 is still too large for her. When I bought them her feet measured on the rim between Child size 11 and 12. Advice is to size up 1 size. That's why we bought Y1. She will probably be able to use it next winter. Because of a nice warm layer of sheepskin she is playing an d crawling in them out and about. This has scuffed the red leather significantly. With red polish it doesn't really diminish. And because of her wild play the thread on top of her toes is worn through. We get a lot of compliments on them. And they stayed waterproof al through winter. (I used polish containing beeswax) (Posted on 3/4/18)

Find Your Child's Size!

You can measure your children's feet at home using a book, a ruler and a wall. You can then see where the measurement fits on our charts below to find the recommended Softstar shoe size.

Note: we no longer recommend tracing feet because it usually gives a larger measurement than the method described below. Our sizing charts work in accordance with the following method.

To measure your child's feet:

  1. 1. Remove shoes and socks and place your child's bare foot so that the heel is barely touching a wall.
  2. 2. Place a book on the floor, parallel to the wall, so that it is barely touching the front of the longest toe.
  3. 3. Move your child's foot away carefully and measure the distance from the book to the wall.
  4. 4. Look for your measurement on the sizing charts below to find the recommended shoe size.


  • Wiggle/growing room is already taken into account.
  • If your child is on the border between two sizes then we recommend the larger 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.

Printable Stand-On Size Guides

We recommend using the measuring method shown above for the most accurate sizing, but if you'd like a simpler method (especially when measuring squirmy children) then you may want to try our printable size guides. Just print the guide below and follow the instructions on the page.

Note: before you print these guides, make sure your printer settings will not shrink or scale the page. Uncheck any boxes labeled "Fit to Printable Area" and/or set scaling options to "None."


Care Tips for Full Grain (smooth) Leather Shoes


Softstar Shoes are made from eco-friendly leathers tanned in the USA. Leather is a natural product and some variation in texture and hide markings is to be expected. Because we use leather colored with non-toxic food grade dyes, there will likely be some initial color transfer to your socks or skin if your shoes become damp. This will decrease with use, but we don't recommend wearing your new Softstars with your favorite white socks the first time you take them for a spin. 


If your shoes are a little snug at first in the toe box area, you can gently stretch them by stuffing the toe box with a dry cloth. Push the cloth tightly into the front of the shoe and let sit stuffed overnight to stretch. Do not use a damp cloth as the water can stain the leather or innersole of some leather types, rendering it non-returnable.



Most full grain leather we use is naturally water resistant, but our special vegetable-tanned leather (available only by custom selection on some of our design-your-own shoes) is a "naked" leather and will stain from water alone. You can clean shoes as needed with water dampened cloth and let air dry, but please note if you do this on vegetable-tanned leather then you will need to wet/stain the entire shoe to avoid water marks. Condition the leather as often as desired with any quality leather dressing, but be careful to keep it away from the edges of your rubber soles. Do not use mink oil on your shoes, as it can degrade the adhesion on bonded soles and cause the sole to separate from your shoe over time. We highly recommend Bee Natural Amore for general conditioning or Rain & Snow or Nikwax Full Grain Waterproofing on smooth leather for enhanced water resistance. The color on shiny metallic shoes will eventually patina with use into an antique wear look, which can be accelerated with repeated use to water and high wear (e.g. scuffing toes).



We do not recommend frequent washing of any leather product as it strips the leather of it's natural oils and tends to dry stiffer. For all of our leathers (except vegetable-tanned) you can clean by hand with a damp cloth, or if needed you can hand wash your leather shoes using a gentle shampoo and cool water. Let them air dry. Do not attempt to dry your shoes by exposing them to high heat, such as a clothes dryer, a hair dryer or by leaving them on a radiator or next to a fire. Doing so may damage leather or rubber soles.


We are often asked if our shoes can be washed in a washing machine. While not recommended as a normal course of action, when in dire straits the Elves have been known to toss a pair of shoes in the machine and generally have had good results. Just don't mix them with any other item because of color bleeding. Shoes with sheepskin can take 3-4 days to air dry if fully submerged in water, but you can speed up the drying by stuffing with old newspapers and replacing the paper twice a day.
