Our handsewn genuine American Elk bit loafer is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. Heel-to-toe leather wrapped memory foam comfort insole with durable rubber outsole will keep you comfortable on all your adventures. Elk are indigenous to North America and are prized for the softness of the leather. We hand-craft our shoes using durable full-grain leather, which helps to maximize the longevity of the shoe. The labor-intensive process of crafting a handsewn ensures each shoe will keep its shape and maintain its size profile for life. Couple this craftsmanship with our North American elk and all shoes are other humdrum by comparison. A true American classic!
T.B. Phelps celebrates Classic American Style. Their footwear and accessories feature the highest quality materials and craftsmanship while highlighting traditional, classic designs. They produce leather products with skilled craftsmen using age old techniques. Their hand-sewn shoes are wet-lasted to the shoe forms and then carefully hand stitched one pair at a time. The leathers for the top and sides of each shoe are cut by cross-linking the leather fibers for a shoe that fits and wears well. Each part used to make the shoes is pattern-matched for a beautiful finished product.
