ELK - NORD PLATFORM BROGUE SHOES

  • Sale
  • Regular price $80.00


The Nord Platform Brogues have been handmade in India using cow leather upper and a sheep leather sock. The layered platform sole adds height and provides a neat distinction against the perforated face of the shoe. The square cut out shapes are spaced in an abstract pattern and add to the sleek look of the platform. Inside you will find an elastic barrier against the back of the shoe to assist in comfort when in full stride. Platform height: 58 mm

A platform style shoe has less spring than most due to the stacked sole. This style is extremely comfortable but has less flex than a regular shoe so you can expect some movement when wearing - especially the first few times. As the leather relaxes you can tighten the laces to keep the shoe in place. A small internal elastic has been added inside the heel which helps with grip. We recommend wearing a low cut sockette for comfort.

Design Notes

This style has been handmade in Agra, India by a family owned and operated factory. They have been in business for over 60 years and specialise in making shoes for the European market. We visit the factory two to three times a year to see our products being made, to assess working conditions, source materials and learn new techniques. Each design is tested at Elk HQ where the shoes are worn for a period to consider comfort, wear and style. The leather upper is made using EU REACH standards and is a bi product from the meat industry.
