Nicole is all energy, hard working and dedicated to helping others 

Nicole Mountain grew up in one of Cape Town’s poorest townships. At the young age of 20 she is the Community Engagement Associate at Barclays Africa

Energy, that is the first word that comes to mind when you meet Nicole. As part of our VELDSKOEN™ Stories series, we spent some time with Nicole in CapeTown, and even managed to get her to join our first fashion shoot. 

Humble andHardworking toward a better future

Nicole is one of our favorite people. She is humble, hard-working, giving and, most importantly, she affects South Africa in a positive way. Her resume is, simply put, amazing. The highlights being her participation in the Learning Journey program in China, her studies at the Raymond Ackerman Academy of Entrepreneurial Development, and recently,  a Youth Advisory board member for Young Global Pioneers.

AMBITION AND DRIVE 

"I am a young South African that strongly believes that I am here to live a life in service of others and that if I am able to help someone or my community, that it is my responsibility to do so. My ambition and drive come from believing that I can be more than what I was born into and not be a statistic. I want to be an example to the thousands that still live in the township, and be the demonstration of possibilities, through hard work and dedication," says Nicole.

VELDSKOEN™ is so proud to have Nicole on board as one of our ambassadors. She will be working with VELDSKOEN™ to seek out opportunities for us to help in improving the lives of less privileged South Africans. 

Nicole, thanks for your time, and effort. It's so good to have you as part of the family.

Men's Heritage Veldskoen (Bloem Orange)

Simply the Best

I recently purchased the Men's Heritage Veldskoen (Farmer Grey) and was immediately impressed by the quality of the craftsmanship. Upon trying them on for the first time I especially noted the comfort of the insole and quite frankly the outer sole of the shoe is the best I have seen on a boot of this class. It is a quality product that I enjoy wearing and would highly recommend.

Love Orange Pop of Color!

I’ve had many complements on the color and styling. Overall, the shoe is pretty comfortable. It does need an arch supporting insole. For the price, that is expected. I am looking into finding an insole that will work. Shoes are great for low walking events, but not a full day on the stroll. Thanks!

perfection, right from the box

i was so excited to see the bellies i ordered! the violet soles and laces add so much character. i put them on, walked out of the house, went to work and wore them all day long with absolutely no chafing or problems. you wouldn’t have even known i was wearing brand new shoes that would usually require a breaking in period.
i say pick a color and go for it! i doubt you’ll regret it!!

Great comfortable fun shoes

Comfortable as advertised, high quality, fun looking shoes.
Sizing runs a little bigger than the American
