Shoe fanatics love N.D.C. Made by Hand for its rich leather ankle boots, moccasins, and boat shoes, which possess the sort of worn-in personality and well-loved comfort that usually takes years for shoes to achieve. Short for nom-de-code (code name), this Belgium-based label was launched in 2001 by footwear veterans Arnaud Zannier and Enrique Corbi, who set out to combine high-quality leather from Europe’s best tanneries with distinctive, fashion-forward design. From its coated suede Pere Shearling chukka boots, monk strap oxfords, and nubuck Plim’s high-top sneakers for men to its high-heeled, sheepskin wedge booties for women, each pair of N.D.C. Made by Hand reflects the brand’s four key values: simplicity, quality, originality, and expertise of construction. Let’s add a fifth: impeccable style.
The name says it all: Quality comes first for n.d.c.’s handcrafted shoes, and the brand’s signature styles are made to withstand the wear and tear of the season. Choose from weathered brogues, shearling-lined slip-ons, stitched moccasins, and oiled booties, fashioned from extra-soft European leather.
Booties for spring? Take one look at these lightened-up versions of your favorite winter staple and you'll be convinced. Lace-up flats, soft suede mocassins, and rugged sliver wedges pair perfectly with breezy dresses and distressed cut-offs. Plus, eye-catching details like geometric cut-outs, peep toes, and lizard-embossed leather add a chic, seasonal touch.
