The Black Flack Sneakers are a classic trainer with a twist. The soft leather upper features a monochromatic spotted pattern over the body of the shoe, creating a playful take on a weekend look. A padded cuff, lace up fastening and leather upper is a winning combination, making these sneakers the perfect combination of comfort and versatility.

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. Some of the team from ELK HQ visit the factory two to three times 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. It is a bi product from the meat industry.
Gupta run an in-house training institute with the sole objective to train rural, underprivileged youths, particularly those who live below the poverty line to enhance their employability.
