They got their start through Kickstarter!! 


Enzo Bonafe . . . . Markhor.  How do these relate to each other.

Yes they are nice. I think they are at least 2 years old,they are my first Skoak pair. But it is not my only pair...

 

As I have several pairs of this toe design now, I wanted a slightly different shape, and I wanted to try something of the correct length.

Very nice man...you did a great job.  I am still looking to get my first one... :)

Been talking to several guys about buying their used ones since I'm not really sure what all I like yet.  I am a fan of chukkas and really want a nice pair of comfortable wing tips too....

They might have some grey left, but think the dark brown and black are all gone. So is the hippo, I believe.

It might be a weird question, but how can you be allowed to produce anything from elephant leather? I mean aren't they protected and it's forbidden to kill them in the first place?

There are protected reserves that need their populations culled from time to time, either because they need to make room for the younger populations to thrive, or because they're otherwise disrupting the population. CITES tracks these, and there must be documentation tracing individual hides to specific reserves to be compliant. Funds raised from selling the authorized hides go towards maintaining these reserves.

 

One can raise questions as to whether there's corruption within the CITES framework, but to answer your question, it's not illegal to produce things from elephant leather, in and of itself.

It isn't a weird question at all.  Legal hunting of certain elephants- generally with location, gender, and age restrictions - is legal in certain countries.  If I'm not mistaken, it is legal - again, in limited circumstances - in Zimbabwe, Tanzania, South Africa, Zambia, Mozambique and maybe others.  Older males beyond likely breeding years are (literally) generally fair game in countries that allow it at all.

 

My guess is big game hunters aren't motivated about the leather so the leather is a by product of something going on legally (in some countries) anyway.  Whether that is enough for some consumers to regard elephant hide as "ethically sourced" will likely vary from person to person.  But, in any event, there is no flat ban on the use of elephant hide and there is no across the board ban on hunting elephants.

It's legal but the ethics are another question. I find the notion they need their populations culled to be highly improbable. It's legal bc it's legal in certain countries.

You also have to be careful with importing the shoes - they have to have the proper paperwork otherwise it can be confiscated and a fine levied
