    2014 World Cup Shoes: Germany vs. Argentina

    We hope you're enjoying the World Cup as much as we are! It's been an edge-of-your-seat-sweaty-palms-nail-biter for many of our elves, and we're super excited about the final match this weekend between Germany and Argentina.

    To celebrate the big showdown, Elf Keoni has made a very special pair of World Cup shoes highlighting the national colors for each team. Argentina's blue and white shoe features a handmade 2014 FIFA soccer ball patch while Germany's black, red and blue shoe features a champion trophy cut from our shiny gold leather.

    Who are you rooting for?

    These shoes will remain on display at the Soft Star workshop. Scroll down to see more photos of each, and remember that we can always make shoes in your special team colors!
