Feeling the rich, loamy soil of the Elderwood Forest below your feet is invigorating. Propel yourself through the world confidently wrapped in legendary leather tabi with the grip and control that only tabi can provide.
The Elderwood Tabi are hand-crafted, calf high tabi boots made from our highest quality leather. Designed to zip up for quick trips to the forest edge, while lacing up the outer calf to adjust to your body shape (whether generously calved, or slim and lithe). Elderwood products are made with daily wear, hiking, adventuring, and festival trips in mind. Will your knees hurt after a day of wear? Absolutely not. Our soles are light weight, borrowing from athletic shoes in design, while still constructed with a high rubber content to last as long as possible (typically 1-6 years depending on daily / weekly wear). The soles are made to be flexible, molding to your feet and the ground. Heirloom quality made to last a lifetime with proper care. We recommend gentle leather lotion in dry climates every month, or every three months in more humid circumstances / with less frequent wear to preserve a new-look. Fully lined with comfortable materials, with every edge finished.
Every pair of Elderwood Tabi comes with a pair of black flat leather laces with metal tips. We also offer a green and purple faux leather lace pack (also with metal tips) for $24.99 to give your boots a pop of color. Lace length is automatically selected for you based on the style of boot and your shoe size. If you have a preference of lace length, let us know in your order notes and we will do our best to accommodate.
Loving your boots is about more than wearing them - it's also about storing them properly. Boot Display Stretchers are a lovely way to display your boots in your home and help them keep their shape. They help avoid creasing from being flopped over, and make it easier to perform leather care (like moisturizing the exterior with leather lotion). For an additional $24.99 we will include a set of 2 plastic stretchers with your order.
