Elephant hide boots are hard wearing, not hard to wear. No bones about it, you won't find a more resilient hide than elephant and each pair will have it owns character for a boot unique to you. Our handcrafting process includes tucking the interior seams, full leather stacked heel and insole, hand-lasting, and inspecting every detail along the way.

Enhanced Boot Fit

The shape of your boot comes from stretching leather around a form called a "Last". 

Unlike traditional lasts that are flat and straight, Capitan enhanced lasts are designed around the shape and curve of your foot. 

The lasting process is then completed by our most-skilled artisans. These master craftsmen select and stretch the hide by hand allowing them to feel what each unique piece of leather needs to form the desired look and fit of your boot.

This proces delivers what we refer to as our firm handshake fit.
It's not easier or cheaper to do it this way, but your boots will conform to your foot for incredible comfort and last for years to come.

Received boots today. Quality is incredible, soft yet sturdy construction! Fit is great, a little tight at the vamp but will break in perfectly. Likely going to wear these boots everyday. Fit is large compared to some boots. I wear a 9 Tony Lama, ordered 8.5 for these.
Will come back with a long term wear update.

Size: Larger than expected

I wear a wide width in every other boot brand, but these are very wide. They have very comfortable soles, but I would buy a standard width next time.

Comments everywhere

Everywhere I go I get compliments on my Elephant boots. They fit very well. I usually wear 9.5 but ordered these in a 9 since the rough out I purchased in 9.5 were too big. Love my Elephant and when a light brown or honey are available, I’ll buy another pair
