I believe I was the first in the business to create a 5-inch elevator boot 10 years ago. ( the fossato 1) I wanted the style to be as safe as possible, to wrap around the ankle to give the wearer maximum support. I created the first style as a rounded toe cap with a space of 14mm from the toes. The 2nd version seen here I've tried to make the boot more elegant and less workman like. I will try to get some videos on the website asap.
