Elephant Shoe is the third album by Arab Strap, released in 1999.

The album's title is a phrase sometimes used by children who are afraid of saying "I love you",[4] where they mouth "I love you" under their breath, but when asked what they had said, answer "elephant shoe" or elephant juice, because the mouth shapes are the same.
