In 2012, Michael Sandler and Jessica Lee, co-authors of the book Barefoot Running, released a feature length movie appropriately titled Barefoot Running, the Movie. The documentary covers all aspects of barefoot running, including an analysis on running anatomy, training exercises and tips on what to expect while transitioning from conventional running. In one chapter, Michael discusses footwear and offers his checklist of qualities that should be found in a good barefoot running shoe. A very proud RunAmoc Dash is featured as the model of a shoe that fulfills all requirements. For more information, read our review of Barefoot Running, the Movie.
"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!"
