We love innovation. But in some cases, the best way to move forward, is to take a step back. The Roo moccasin is footwear uninvented. Made with natural materials that are high in quality and few in number, these shoes are built to let you fully experience the world through which you move.

Smooth full grain leather uppers wrap your foot in rich, breathable leather. The traditional suede soles are flexible and soft, well-suited to both indoor and dry outdoor use. Suede is naturally durable and initially non-skid, wearing into a smoother, moisture-resistant surface over time. Don’t worry, you can always restore the soles’ non-skid properties by gently rubbing the sole with a wire brush!

Inside the shoe, luxurious sheepskin innersoles embrace your feet and keep them protected, dry, and oh-so-comfortable. Genuine sheepskin is nature's heat regulator—it keeps feet dry in the summer and cozy in the winter! Inner elastic hugs the ankle for a secure fit that’s easy on, easy off…that is, if you ever decide to take them off!

  • Genuine sheepskin innersoles keep feet dry in summer & warm in winter while providing comfort and cushioning
  • Indoor / dry outdoor shoe
  • Elastic ankle closure—easy on and off
  • Can be worn with or without socks
  • Handcrafted in USA from premium, responsibly-sourced leathers

Roo Moccasin FAQs

  • Moccasin free form sizing.

    Softstar moccasins are beloved for their genuine sheepskin soles and ultra-comfortable feel. They have an free form nature that allows them to fit many different sizes and shapes of feet with ease. People often order a size bigger in moccasins for the extra roomy comfort as the design allows your foot to move to the front easily. Extra length ends up behind your heel, and not in front of your toes which makes it comfortable for walking. This is also handy with children as they can grow into bigger sizes with ease.

    When you receive a new pair of moccasins, you might find it is hard to tell apart the right from the left. The size tags will be on your inner ankles. They may also may look slightly different from right to left. Keep in mind that your new shoes will start to "mold" into your foot shape within a few hours and continue to do so the longer you wear them. It's not unusual for us to hear from customers who try a new pair of moccasins and don't like feeling the inner seam against their feet when they first put them on, but in 99% of these cases the feeling of that seam disappears completely within a couple days as you break in the shoes.

  • Tell me more about elk leather.

    We are excited to offer wildharvested North American elk leather as one of the color options for this shoe. Elk leather is naturally softer and more supple than our other full grain leathers and makes your moccasins extra cozy!

    Please note that this leather is more vulnerable to stains than our other leathers and even plain water can discolor elk moccasins. Due to the wild nature of elk, these moccasins may show natural scars or blemishes. We due our best to use the cleanest parts of the hide for the front of elk moccasins, but sometimes we nave no choice but to include a few imperfections (see example in product photos above). This leather is also prone to variations in color and may look lighter or darker than the photos shown on this page. We receive only a limited supply of elk leather every year, so it is not uncommon for it to become unavailable in the winter as the year ends. Due to it's higher cost, there is a $10 surcharge for elk leather.

    Despite the drawbacks, we love the comfort and locally-sourced nature of our elk moccasins and we're sure you will, too. They have become a steady favorite among both our fans and our shoemaking staff. Elk moccasins feel great on your feet and make wonderful, unique gifts for your loved ones.

    Please contact us if you have more questions about our wildharvested elk leather.

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

Measure Your Feet...

Note: we do not recommend tracing feet because doing so usually gives a larger measurement. Our sizing charts work in accordance with the following method:

Remove shoes and socks and place bare foot so that the heel is barely touching a wall.
Place a book on the floor, parallel to the wall, so that it is barely touching the front of the longest toe.
Step away carefully and measure the distance from the book to the wall.

... and Find Your Size

Once you have the measurement, look for it on the charts below to find the recommended Softstar shoe size.

Care Tips for Full Grain (smooth) Leather Shoes

Includes Sublime, Nova, Shiny, LITE, Plonge and Vegetable-Tanned Leathers


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.
