Heritage Shoe Range

Our Heritage Veldskoen was our first and remains our most popular product range. Reimagined with our signature colourful Veldskoen soles and our streamlined design, they remain, in essence, everything a traditional South African pair of Veldskoen should be; tough, comfortable, and reliable.

Safari Black

Have you ever been on a realSafari? It’s the ultimate way to holiday in South Africa. We don’t mean a Safari in the back of an air-conditioned  SUV. We mean a safari on foot! Walking the plains of South Africa, intentionally breathing in their wild beauty, perhaps being lucky enough to spot the big five. Sounds epic right?

    • Superior materials: We source as many of our materials locally (in SA) as we possibly can. By sourcing locally, we help support local businesses and communities. This has the knock-on effect of reduced carbon emissions, because components and finished products spend less time in transit.
    • All day Comfort: Veldskoen leather naturally conforms and moulds to your foot. After a few days of wear, they will feel like they are an extension of your foot.
    • Hand stitched detail:   Each Veldskoen is handmade and stitched in South Africa by master shoe makers. This means individual care and attention is given to every shoe.
    • Brighten your sole:   Veldskoen come in a variety of colours. There’s a Veldskoen sole for every mood and situation. In Veldskoen you can go from cruising the office, to hiking through the bush, without skipping a beat.
    • Odour free: Did you know leather is a natural deodorizer? Veldskoen announce themselves because of how they look, not because of how they smell. You can even wear them without socks.
    • Leather Uppers: Our leather is sourced from a handful of local tanneries. We use a few different types of leathers.
    • Full grain reversible suede in 1.8/2.0mm substance on our Heritage and Chelsea range.
    • All our leathers are sustainably and ethically, sourced by-product from the local meat industry.

      Because we use genuine leather, finishes may differ slightly between shoes, or areas on a pair of shoes. We love these unique textures and believe they are part of what gives Veldskoen their beautiful character!

    • Hydrophobic leather: All our Veldskoen leathers have been given a hydrophobic treatment. This means that if you spill liquid on them, it will roll off, instead of damning up, which gives you time to wipe off the liquid before it is absorbed.
    • Veldskoen Sole:All our soles are all made from a durable synthetic rubber compound, which is recyclable.
    • Insock:To give you all day comfort, our insocks are made with a 4mm, high density, memory foam. They are covered with a durable PU lining that creates the perfect padding for your feet.
    • Laces: Our 70cm/27 inch laces are 50/50 polyester and cotton blend. This combination of polyester and cotton creates a strong and flexible lace that will last a long time.
    • Stitching: Our stitching is done with a semi waxed, 100% polyester, braided thread, that is as strong as the shoe itself. We use double stitching, on all high movement areas of the shoe, for added strength.

    Excellent pair of shoes

    I bought these for my dad. He's quite difficult to shop for because he doesn't like many things and is quite happy with simple stuff. I bought him these for his birthday and he absolutely loved them. They fit perfectly and he says they are very comfortable and well made. I'm going to buy myself a pair at some point too!

    Great Shoes!

    So far I have thoroughly enjoyed the shoes. Good quality leather and very comfortable. The only reason I have given 4 stars is due to the sizing issue. The sizing chart displayed on your site says take a size 9 Veldskoen if you are an SA size 9 but when I received them they felt way too big. I have spoken to someone else who had the same issue. Maybe look into changing that sizing chart or something because it was way off from what I normally take. But overall, happy with my shoes once I received the smaller size.

    Safari Black

    Overall very happy, just left shoe inside, has a small piece of leather not glued properly, catching my little toe every time I walk. Had to try and glue inside, but very nice, Also bought Blue laces with my black sole, looks amazing. Thanks for your excellent service, ordered 1 size to big and was replaced within a couple of days.
