  • Anyone tried Soft Star shoes?

    A friend just told me about these, she says she loves them and wears them all the time except when it's too cold. I noticed they have running shoes you can get with trail soles from Vibram. I looked at VFFs but my feet are really wide and weird so I don't think they'd fit well, and also I hate synthetic fibres. She says SS will make them to fit if needed as well.

    Wonderful company. Yes, they will custom fit the shoes. I bought a pair of RunAmoks (cool name). They fit perfectly. I wear 4E. But they don't work for me. I got the thin soles. At over 200 lbs (dropping), I'm not cut out to go that close to barefoot, or at least unwilling to. Also, they constantly fill with sand and other debris. I think the trail soles in one of their shoes without the ventilation holes might have worked.

    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

      Thanks, that's useful info. I was thinking of the suede runamoks, no ventilation holes in those.

        I haven't tried Soft Stars but I think Invisible Shoes are a great alternative to Vibrams. Each pair is custom made to the shape of your individual foot. Their customer service is top notch as well.
