We were tickled this week to learn we are featured in Michael Sandler's top selling book, Barefoot Running: How to Run Light and Free by Getting in Touch with the Earth. Michael and co-author Jessica Lee were kind enough to send the Elves our very own autographed copy—very cool. Since that time, they have visited our shop and developed a good relationship with our elves. They even helped us test some of our running shoes!
Michael also has a website devoted to barefoot running: www.runbare.com. We encourage you to check out his interesting and informative articles.
"Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I have purchased over 8 pair of 'minimalist' shoes in the past 3 years...none of them felt like walking barefoot to me......until now. Your leather is soft your soles are flat and my foot is relaxed!!!"
"My entire experience with Softstar has been nothing short of an amazing experience from beginning to end. Will not buy any other shoes...my feet no longer hurt at all."
"This shoe is exactly what you would hope it to be. High quality leather and workmanship in a simple, natural stance running shoes made of all natural materials. Glad I found them."
"I've never had shoes that have fit as well as these or received as many compliments… I wish I had found them sooner!"
"There are no other shoes like Softstar - strong, comfortable, pretty - the best choice of minimal shoes one can get. Thank you for making our lives easier and wonderful!"
