    MATERIAL

    Upper: Cow Leather
    Sock/Lining: Sheep Leather
    Sole: Rubber

    Leather is a natural material made from animal hides that have been preserved and softened through a tanning process. We select our leathers based on their individual properties and the intended application.

    Leather lasts a long time, ages well and is easy to care for and repair. Leather will develop patina over time and gets better with age.

    Both the upper and leather lining on this style were sourced from Leather Working Group (LWG) audited and rated tanneries. LWG aims to improve the environmental impact of the leather industry by assessing and certifying leather manufacturers. The audit protocol covers energy use, waste, water use and chemicals, as well as traceability.

    MAKER

They have been in business for over 60 years and specialise in making shoes for the European market. With a commitment to responsible business practices and a culture of continuous improvement, Gupta has implemented some outstanding initiatives to support their employees, community and the environment.

    Each design is tested at ELK HQ where the shoes are worn for a period to consider comfort, wear and style. The leather upper meets European REACH standards for chemical safety.

    CARE INSTRUCTIONS

    These leather shoes should be cleaned and conditioned with a neutral cream polish. Apply with a soft cloth and rub into dry or scuffed areas. Leather is a natural material and will age with wear. It is imperative that you avoid wetting or soaking these shoes in water as this will greatly affect the quality and appearance. The dye in the leather can sometimes rub off so please be aware of this when wearing light clothing or placing the leather item on light surfaces.
