Veldskoen quite literally means “Field Shoe” in Afrikaans; one of South Africa's eleven National Languages. If you find it difficult pronouncing the word "Veldskoen", you can also call them "Vellies." The nickname is used by many South African cultures and it seems to roll off the tongue a little easier.
Our Veldskoen shoes are unisex and have a wide fit. We recommend gents order their usual SA/UK size, and ladies order one size smaller than they normally would. If you're unsure about what size to get, please contact us at email@example.com. We will be happy to put you on the right path and get you the very best fit.
Your Vellies may take a week or two of wear to break in and conform to your feet. Once they do, they will be so comfortable, you might see them as an extension to your feet
Our Veldskoen are handmade in an ethical factory by master craftsmen and women in Kwa-Zulu Natal. This region of South Africa is known for its shoe manufacture throughout the world. We visit our factories often and we have a good relationship with them
Veldskoen are made for the bush, they are designed to walk miles in dust and mud, spend days plowing fields and generally take whatever’s thrown at them. We advise using a suede/nubuck cleaning product to clean every once in a while. Our favourite option is Spotless shoe cleaner
Don’t wash your Vellies with water. If they do get wet, let them dry in the sun. Scrunch newspaper into balls and stuff inside to hurry the dry process.
Veldskoen are made from 100% genuine African raw hide leather. When we make a pair of shoes, we don't use composite leather to get a uniform look. All the leather is cut from one hide. That is why, in some cases, there may be a very slight variance, in texture and shade, from one shoe to the other. We love this uniqueness. We call it character! Our leather will not wear down, crack, or fall apart. It will outlast pretty much any other shoe material.
