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.
Scoop up perfect-fit sandals, ballet flats, and pop-of-color heels.
Whether it’s the impeccably lived-in chukkas or the salt-washed boat shoes, the kicks in this sale are all about rugged European cool. And in case you’ve already met your rugged cool quota (as if that were possible), check out the stylish suede moccasins or laid-back slip-ons, either of which are a fine way to class up your off-duty look.
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.
