Softstar Shoes Combines Foot Health and Fashion

PHILOMATH, Ore., Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — It’s not always easy to find shoes that are in turn stylish, sustainable and biomechanically healthy…but Softstar Shoes just might have the solution. The handcrafted shoe company has added a brand new design to its unique Primal line that many have come to know and love. Dubbed the Primal Merry Jane, this new shoe style is delightfully comfortable, classy and completely foot-friendly.

This is the third shoe to feature Softstar’s Primal shape, which has a following of thousands of customers seeking healthy kicks. The foot-shaped design is widest at the toes, allowing feet to move freely, and accommodates toe spacers for those wishing to “rewild” their feet back to their natural shape.

Softstar builds sustainability and foot health into the forefront of every shoe design, and the Primal Merry Jane is no different:

  • Strong from the Ground Up™ – The flexible 2mm Vibram™ sole and foot-shaped Primal design allow muscles, tendons and joints to easily flex and respond as nature intended.
  • Less Shoe. More You™ – The Primal Merry Jane weighs a mere 5 ounces, providing a surprisingly barefoot-like experience.
  • Luxurious leather uppers are cut from responsibly sourced German aniline leather. Minimal designs, a small USA workshop and direct-to-customer shipping generate a carbon footprint 15X smaller than the average pair of consumer footwear.

With a feminine strap, buckle closure, and narrow and regular width options, the Primal Merry Jane is compatible with a variety of foot shapes. “My favorite thing about designing this shoe was creating a silhouette that is not only pretty, but healthy and comfortable, as well,” said lead shoe designer, Molly Harrison.

This style is ideal for those seeking a versatile minimal shoe that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. The shoe retails for $140 and is available in three luscious leather colors: Aged Acorn, Elderberry, and Blaze. Handmade by Softstar’s artisans at their Oregon workshop, the Primal Merry Jane is a beautiful combination of fashion and function.
