Elafaustus is a unique business, centered around the creation of tailored barefoot shoes. The founder has an extensive background in costume design and textiles, skills that are now applied to the craft of shoe-making. Driven by a desire for barefoot ballerinas that were both appealing and affordably priced, she applied her knowledge of leatherwork to make her first pair. This marked the beginning of a journey into shoe-making craftsmanship.
The barefoot shoes crafted by Elafaustus respect the natural shape of the foot, allowing for freedom of movement similar to walking barefoot. Each pair is exclusively made from leather and is hand-sewn. The result is a unique pair of shoes tailored to your feet’s outlines and measurements.
What makes Elafaustus unique are the details. Skin color, thread color, and other elements are carefully consulted with each individual, ensuring a personalized experience. This level of care and attention to detail is reflective of the founder’s approach and commitment to her craft.
Located in a historic area with a rich past dating back to the 10th century, Elafaustus thrives in an environment of natural beauty and inspiration. This serene setting provides a creative backdrop for the handcrafting of each unique pair of shoes.
