Elk - Vikran Sneaker, White

$265

Elk Vikran Sneaker, White.

A comfortable, everyday sneaker, this style is lined in cotton for comfort with a rounded toe for a pleasing and comfortable silhouette. Consider these sneakers a go-to for pairing with other tonal shades, or for adding a strong base to a lighter outfit.

 

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

 

Leather lasts a long time, ages well and is easy to care for and repair. Unlike many synthetic materials, leather develops patina over time and gets better with age. Buying a well-made leather product can be considered an investment and supports the slow fashion ethos of “buying less, buying better”. Leather can be recycled or upcycled, and once it reaches the end of its lifecycle it is biodegradable.

 

These shoes have been handmade in Agra, India by family-owned and operated factory Gupta Overseas Pty Ltd. They have been in business for over 60 years and specialise in making shoes for the European market. We visit the factory at least twice a year to see our products being made, 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 REACH standards, a European Union regulation (1907/2006/EC) restricting the levels of specific chemical substances in goods.

 

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.

 

Gupta has SA8000 social accountability certification and as members of Sedex undergo annual Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) audits, to ensure safe and ethical work practices.

 

  • This sneaker fits true to size, although with the rounded toe and the wider fit, it can feel roomy. You will find this style comfortable both with socks and on their own.
  • Heel height: 35 mm
