The Elevato uses a genuine hair-on hide upper that creates a look few can rival. The cows who produced the hide were raised in Leon, Mexico and groomed from birth to grow fur in ways no other cow can. Fed a rich diet of fatty oils and nutrients, these cows produce a hide that is silky smooth and shows a nice luster when the lighting is right. The base of this piece uses a flat leather sole that slowly adapts to your foot over time. This gives it not only a unique look and style, but a fit and feel similar to a glove for your foot rather than a shoe. This style is hand-crafted in Leon, Mexico and made to order. We have sourced a limited amount of these specialty hides and can only offer this shoe while supplies last.
