Arla Black Sandals
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.
Size & Fit
Heel height: 17 mm
The Arla Black Sandals run true to size. The leather upper will soften and stretch with wear.
Please refer to our size guide for further information.
Upper: Cow Hair/Cow Crinkle Patent Leather
Lining: Sheep Leather
These leather shoes should be cleaned and conditioned with a neutral cream polish on the patent leather sections only. Apply with a soft cloth and rub into dry or scuffed areas. To clean the cow hair, use a slightly damp cloth with a mild detergent and wipe in the direction of the hair growth. Avoid getting the hair too wet in this process. 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.
