DESCRIPTION & FEATURES

J-Bay

J-bay or Jefferies Bay is one of the best-known surf spots in the world. It sits on the east coast of South Africa about a day’s drive north of Cape Town It has a perfect point break with crystal blue water hence where we got the name for the blue Veldskoen. J-bay is considered by many to be one of the few meccas of surfing.

  • Ethics First: We believe in building better shoes. That's why our Veldskoen are handcrafted with locally sourced premium materials, made with a compulsive eye for detail, a conscious mind, and an innovative approach to transparency with a desire to never stop improving and evolving. 
  • Superior materials: All our materials are sourced locally. By sourcing locally we help support local businesses and communities and in turn reduce the carbon footprint by reducing transit and production times.
  • Comfort: Veldskoen will feel like butter on your feet. The leather naturally conforms and molds to your foot. After a few days of wear, they will feel like they are an extension of your foot.
  • Hand-stitched durability: Each Veldskoen is hand-stitched in South Africa by master shoemakers. This means individual care and attention is given to every shoe. See our factory to learn more.
  • Brighten your sole: We offer a color to match any situation. From cruising the office to hiking through the bush without skipping a beat.
  • Smell the roses: Did you know leather is a natural deodorizer? Our shoes will have your feet smelling like a rose.
SPECS
  • Leather Uppers: Our Leather is sourced from a local tannery just outside of Cape Town. It is run by and employs the local community. We use a full-grain Proteus suede 1.8/2.0mm sustainably and ethically harvested as a byproduct from a meat tannery.
  • Veldskoen Sole: All our soles are made from 100% recyclable rubber compound that has an extended durability. It also has shorter cycle times, lower energy consumption, and less waste during manufacturing in effect slashing our greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Insoles: To create the most comfortable shoe, and to live up to our history as a shoe that is designed to be on your feet all day, we spared no expense in finding the very best combination of materials and manufacturing. We use a 4mm stitch down with high-density memory foam with a durable PU lining that creates the perfect padding and ultra-comfort for your feet.
  • Laces: Our laces are a 50/50 polyester cotton blend, with a length of 70cm / 27 inches. The combination of the Polyester and Cotton blend creates a strong and flexible lace that will not break down and lasts longer than traditional laces.
  • Stitching: Our stitching is 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.

Free shipping on orders over $50. Our return policy is simple: we offer a 30-day trial period. You can return or exchange your shoes for free with no questions asked, even if you've worn them out in your last adventure.

Good looking and comfortable shoe

I was excited for these. The shoes are very comfortable and I get a lot of compliments. But, after owning them for just a few weeks the black trim on the inside heel of one shoe is coming apart.

Hi Tim!
We are so sorry about that. Please email support@veldskoenshoesusa.com the picture of the issue and we will make sure to replace that pair for you!
Thanks so much.

Gift for son

I have two pair of your veldskoens. The heritage and classic Chukkas that I’m breaking in as I write this review. They are by far the best pair of shoes I’ve ever worn. The last pair of heritage blue I purchased was a gift for my son. When he opened the box he said “ wow thanks dad, can’t wait to wear these to work. He wears a size 12 and they fit perfectly. I highly recommend these shoes. You won’t be sorry.
