In the summer of 2012, extreme runner Donald Buraglio ran and finished the Leadville 100-mile ultarmaration wearing a single pair of Softstar Dash RunAmocs.
The Leadville-100, a high-altitude race across the Colorado Rockies, is known as one of the most challengine distance races on the planet (the starting line is at twice the altitude where planes pressurize their cabins, and it's the lowest point on the course). Donald wrote and published a race report for the November 2012 issue of UltraRunning Magazine. You can read the full article by clicking the image below.
"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!"
