Have you heard of The Legend of Mick Dodge? It's a documentary television series produced my National Geographic that follows the adventures of a man who abandoned civilization to live in the forests of the Olympic Peninsula.
Mick Dodge lives off the land without any modern technology, and he prefers to walk and run barefoot to reconnect with the earth. When he does wear shoes, however, he wears Softstar Original RunAmocs!
Mick has been a long-time fan of Softstar Shoes. We've had some fun and engaging conversations with him over the years and and he has always held a special place in our hearts.
Here's a still photo of Mick's Shoes from the show:
More about the show, and about Mick's preference to go barefoot:
"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!"
