Introducing Baby Leopard!
Our leather-cutting elves have the privilege of working in the most colorful room in the Soft Star workshop. At present, we have over 50 different colors we use to make our shoes in smooth, suede and shiny leather (plus quite a few animal-free options). Since many of these colors need to be stocked in varying grades to accommodate our different shoe designs, the result is hundreds of hides rolled up and carefully organized within reach of the elves.
Just a portion of our smooth leathers.
Tim, founder of Soft Star, works hard every day to track the inventory of our leather supply and keep all the colors stocked. Since we only use leather that is formaldehyde-free, colored with FDA food grade dyes and sourced within the USA, this can be a challenge. As some of our customers may have noticed, our color options occasionally change depending on their availability. Sometimes this means we have to drop an unpopular color, but it usually means we get to add new colors as they become available. We now offer far more colors than we did in the past, including the recent additions of suede gold and suede grey in the grade we use for our adult moccasins.
For our animal print enthusiasts, we have some big news: Tim recently added suede Baby Leopard to the inventory! No, it isn’t made from baby leopards, but from our standard formaldehyde-free suede cowhide colored with food grade dyes. We’ve received many requests from customers for more animal prints, so we’re very excited to offer this new option for our kids moccasins and adult RunAmocs.
With our new website up and running, you can now see colorful swatches of all of our leathers in the drop down menus from our Design-Your-Own shoe options. If you have any questions or feedback about our colors, don’t hesitate to call an elf.
