Sylvan had the most beautiful pair of Soft Star RunAmok Dashes made recently. Soft Star is a small shoe making business in Corvallis, but they send their creations all over the world. They have the cutest workshop with the sweetest elves cobbling away!
There are multiple colors and materials to choose from when making your own color combination. After much contemplation, Sylvan decided on three, beautiful colors: maroon, orange, and yellow. The shoes are super slick and totally stylish. When we explore around town, he always receives a handful of sweet comments from passerbys.
The funniest part about his new shoe obsession is that he loves to clean them off, more than a few times a day. I came across a beautiful shoe/billiards brush at a thrift shop in Walla Walla, and I was using it more for, err, decoration. I mentioned to Sylvan that the brush might come in handy, and he jumped on the suggestion! Now, it is in full force usage, and is doing what it probably does best: keeping things clean (rather than collecting dust on the bookshelf).
I am hoping to order my own pair of Soft Stars in the near future. Probably the Mary Janes,since they are filled with cuteness. Until then, I will just have to enjoy seeing Sylvan’s as they dance around the room and leave magic wherever they step!
