A true country classic, our Elvas is a solid Derby style in Phoenix leather from the famous Steads tannery in Leeds. The leather is nourished with waxes and oils to build a resistance to water with a naturally casual finish, which gains more and more character over time. Fully leather lined with a full cushioned leather insock, the upper is Goodyear welted to a natural crepe rubber sole. This practical construction stitches the sole through a leather welt around the outside of the shoe keeping water away from the upper.
