  • Become a Softstar Ambassador

    Do you love telling your friends about our shoes? If so, then you might make a great Softstar ambassador!

    Unlike the affiliate program, which operates online, Softstar ambassadors share their love for our shoes and our company with people they meet in real life. We developed our Ambassador program for our amazing customers (like you) who enjoy telling their friends and acquaintances about our shoes. We are proud of the products we make and we're very grateful to you for wanting to spread the word. As a small company, it is very important to us to have strong connections with our customers and we hope you know how much your support means to us.

    How it Works

    Softstar ambassadors receive a welcome packet including a Softstar t-shirt and a set of Softstar business cards. You may distribute these cards to anyone you like. On the back of each card is a coupon code for 15% off a shoe purchase, which can be used once per customer.

    How to Apply

    Becoming a Softstar Ambassador involves an application and an interview process. There are a limited number of spaces available in this program so not everyone will be accepted. Please note that we will only consider applicants who are existing customers and have already worn our shoes for at least one year.

    Click the button below to start the application. During the application process, you must agree to the terms and conditions shown here:

    Softstar Ambassador Program Terms and Conditions

You agree we can share your story and photos on our site and with other ambassadors. Softstar Shoes will not share your last name or contact information with the public, but may provide it to third parties, such as UPS, in order to provide services like mailing you business cards, etc. You can request to change your photos or be removed from the program at any time by contacting us at [email protected] and we will respond within 21 business days. Softstar Shoes reserves the right to cancel this program at any time.

    • Inappropriate advertisements (false claims, misleading information) 
    • Illegal spamming (mass email, mass newsgroup posting, etc.)
    • Advertising on sites containing/promoting illegal activities

  • Review Softstar Shoes on Your Blog or Youtube Channel

    Are you interested in trying a pair of our shoes in exchange for a detailed online review? We often work with bloggers and vloggers who have websites and/or Youtube channels that appeal to the interests of our customers.

    Before you submit a request for a review, please take the following points into consideration:

    • All of our shoes are designed to be minimalist and to allow feet to move as close to barefoot as possible (no arch support, no padded heel, little to no cushioning, etc.). We do not want this to come as a surprise. If you are only interested in wearing or reviewing shoes with heavy cushioning then our shoes are probably not a good match for you.
    • Softstar will not pay a blogger to review our products. We expect honest feedback from bloggers who want to review our shoes, not a paid endorsement.
    • We only offer our handmade shoes for reviews, not the third-party products we also sell such as Padraig Slippers, Nativearth footwear or Correct Toes.
    • We will not approve reviews for websites that contain adult content (pornographic, violent or graphic images, etc.), display extremist views or are politically-themed.

    If you think your website or video channel would be a good match for a review of our shoes then let us know! If we agree then we may approve your request.
