[Important] Apology and repair notice regarding elefantas (product number 4331) product recall

Dear customers

Thank you very much for your continued patronage.

Recently, we have confirmed that the heel part of the sole of the elefantas (product number 4331), which we have manufactured and sold since September 2023, peels off after being worn several times.

Therefore, we will immediately stop selling the product and will repair the product free of charge. If you own the affected products, please cooperate with the collection using the methods listed below.

In the future, we will take every possible measure to further ensure quality control to prevent recurrence. Thank you for your understanding.

*Products that use Dr.Sole or Cat's Paw in the heel sole are not subject to the recall.

<About product reinforcement methods>

Drive reinforcing nails into the red circles to secure the boots and heel.
*Since it is fixed at a depth of 4 to 5 mm from the bottom of the boots, the actual product will not be as noticeable as the photo and will not interfere with walking.
