Did you ever wonder why Christmas elves wear their cute pointed shoes? It’s not just for fashion’s sake. Although, the fashion scene in the North Pole is pretty impressive for such an unpopulated place. Where do they get all that red velvet anyway? Legend has it, the quintessential elf shoes have been part of the North Pole uniform since the elves where first employed by Santa Clause. The very shape of elf shoes allow the elves to quickly transport themselves across the snow. The uplifted tips act as the front of a toboggan, shifting snow away from scurrying feet. The hollow tips also provide the elves a place to store their delicious treats, as elves work long hours to bring joy to children all across the world, treat storage is very important. They don’t want to leave the hobby horse station just to gratify their urge for gingersnaps. The reinforced boot cuffs provide ankle support as well as protection from the harsh polar climate. The pom-poms, we have to admit, are just there because they are so darn cute. If your child is a Christmas elf in training it is imperative to provide the right footwear. These shoes, worn for hundreds of years in Santa’s workshop, are what makes a Christmas elf a Christmas elf. The shoes are what set North Pole elves apart from an elf who bakes cookies in a tree or an elf who works off the books in a cobbler shop. We all want what’s best for our children. In these shoes your child is sure to enjoy decking the halls, fa-la-la-la-laing, and generally spreading Christmas cheer.
