Get excited for one of our biggest giveaways ever—we're going electric!

2021 was another one for the record books, but we made it, and we made it in style. Right now the paths for biking in minimal shoes near our Oregon headquarters are cold and wet, but we're dreaming of spring and dreaming of coasting on two wheels!

This is where you come in. To celebrate the new year, and new beginnings, we're teaming up with Rad Power Bikes and Timbuk2 to bring you a game-changing combo: the Rad Mission 1 e-bike, paired with a customizable Classic Messenger Bag! And of course we're going to equip you with foot-friendly Softstar shoes.

This prize package, worth over $1,500, will go out to one lucky winner after the giveaway ends on January 17th.

  • RadMission 1 Electric Bicycle ($1000)
  • Timbuk2 Custom Classic Messenger Bag ($150)
  • Softstar Gift Card ($350)

About the Prizes

Prize Package for Biking in Minimalist Shoes

RadPower Bike

The RadMission 1 is a sleek, stylish single-speed electric bike for city riders craving more utility than your average fixie. With a 500W high-torque motor, 20-45+ mile battery range, and a mid-step frame, it’s ready to handle any mission.

  • Single-speed drivetrain
  • 27.5" x 1.95" Kenda Kontact tires with K-Shield puncture-resistant liners and reflective sidewalls
  • Integrated headlight and tail light with brake light functionality
  • Half-twist throttle and 4 Intelligent Levels of Pedal Assist
  • LED Control Panel
  • Mid-Size Unisex Model

Timbuk2 Messenger Bag

Design your own Timbuk2 custom classic messenger bag by choosing your style, size, fabric, colors, features & more!

Designed in San Francisco with decades of user testing and consumer feedback in mind, TIMBUK2's updated Custom Laptop Messenger features an updated fit, smarter organization, and improved laptop protection. Just like our customizable shoes, you can tweak the design to suit your needs!

The shoulder strap features an optional curved air-mesh strap pad for increased comfort, finer webbing, and Timbuk2’s new Double-Loop CAM buckle that adjusts quickly and eliminates dangling straps. An optional grab strap makes the messenger easier to grab and go, and SR buckles are partially concealed behind the messenger flap for a more refined but just as secure closure.

Softstar Gift Card

Keep your feet happy and healthy in the new year with a $350 Softstar gift card. Trying to decide which Softstars are best for biking in minimal shoes? Here are some top picks:

Breathable and lightweight, our Quick Dry Dash RunAmoc is a great choice for biking. It's our only Dash model featuring a rubber toe cap protecting the front of the shoe. It also has a zero drop 5mm Vibram Omniflex rubber sole, a great choice for haptic feedback without making pedals too hard on your feet.

Our Primal RunAmoc is a good alternative to the Dash if you prefer a wider toe box. Be aware the width may not be compatible with all pedal straps. All Primal RunAmocs are made with bike tubes for the toe cap. If you customize yours, the Omniflex (5mm Vibram Rubber) sole is great for biking in minimal shoes.

Beware of Fraud

Sadly, we live in a world where fraudulent social media profiles (especially from Instagram) have impersonated Softstar in an attempt to scam our fans by claiming they must use a link to enter credit card/payment info to redeem giveaway prizes. We do our best to report and shut down impersonator profiles when we find them, but if you receive a notice that you won one of our giveaways then please follow these tips to ensure your security:

  • This giveaway does not end until midnight on January 17, 2022. No winner will be selected until after that date. If you are told you won before this date then the message is fraudulent.
  • We will not require any additional registration or credit card/payment information from the winner. We will only ask for a shipping address for delivery of the prizes.
  • The winner will be notified by email, not by social media, and the message will come from an address with a domain of either or Messages from any other address domain are not from us.

    This ebike looks amazing! My husband has been wanting to ride his bike to work, but the distance is a bit too long, and the hills a bit too steep. We've also been cladding our whole family in softstar for more than 8 years. Thank you for offering this amazing giveaway!

    I love you shoes-they feel like leather gloves on my hands. I have 4 different pairs and recommend them to everyone who will listen, even strangers. My son hikes the Appalachian trail in Softstar shoes and had NO foot issues, not even blisters. He wore out 2 pair but that is pretty standard for through hiking the AT. Love the elves at Softstar!

    I have had the Softstar Adult DASH RunAmoc shoes for exactly one month now and they have become my favorite everyday wear shoes! The real test will be when I use them for when I do my outdoors work! Now to decide whether to get the Adult Rogue, Adult Roo Moccasin or the Sedona Sandal by Nativearth next when the funds become available! Good luck everyone!
