Product information "Shoto Boot Elephant Wash"

The 5998 is the archetype of all Shoto shoes. The boot with the distinctive inlaid pleat and the 6-hole lacing with the 2 additional hooks already has its own fan base. Just as popular as this shoe, is probably the accompanying wash: Elephant Wash. An elephant was probably the inspiration for the name of this wash. The color is indefinable - something between mud, grey and green - but it definitely looks cool. Thanks to the butter-soft elk leather and the equally soft calfskin as lining, the shoe is very comfortable. The elk leather boot is completely washed, similar to jeans - stonewashed, and then slowly air dried. It is the "high art" to treat the leather so that it does not get hard and the shoe keeps its fit. The shoemakers at Shoto master this like no one else. Various further dyeing and working steps lead the shoe to this special "Elephant Wash".

Due to the special dyeing process, as well as other special treatment techniques (washing, dyeing techniques), each piece is unique. Due to this, individual handwork and the natural nature of the materials, the colours, embossing and structure may vary. Each piece is unique and a real one-of-a-kind, lovingly handcrafted.

Using traditional craftsmanship, Stefano Medori, the second generation, makes unique shoes with great passion. By hand, each shoe is first dipped in a dye bath and then air-dried for at least 24 hours. This creates a unique colouring and varied shades - each wash is unique.

In the 'Stoned Washed' process, the shoes, which are treated with abrasive stones, gain an authentic vintage look. The final finish brings out the unique characteristics - the gradients and shades. The use of premium horse, elk, antelope and calf leather, combined with the best Italian leather soles, create a one-of-a-kind shoe of the finest quality.
