Veldskoene are a very old and famous style of shoe from South Africa - They were first made in the 17th century by the first Dutch settlers in South Africa. Their design is believed to be based on the traditional Khoisan footwear observed by these settlers.
We often refer to our version of these classic South African shoes as “fancy Vellies” as they are fully lined, neatly finished and made from high quality leather. They are sturdy and comfortable and an absolute winter staple.
Made from genuine bovine leather; pigskin inners and resin soles. (An alternative leather inner can be arranged subject to availability upon request- Please contact our stores for more information)
