Men's Chukka boot

The classic Chukka boot is an extension of our mission at Veldskoen to improve the lives around us, reduce our impact, make shoes that outlast and never stop improving what we do, and how we do it. Each Chukka boot is handcrafted and thoughtfully designed in Durban, South Africa with ethically sourced materials and made in a sustainable manner that allows you to adventure, move and inspire with a positive impact on the people around you and the least amount of negative impact on your environment.

  • 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.
  • Smell the roses: Did you know leather is a natural deodorizer? Our shoes will have your feet smelling like a rose.
  • 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 soft leather 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.

Fantastic! Half-sizes please!

11's are not quite as tight as I would like but with 10's my big toe touches the end of the shoe. I really wish a half-size would be offered. Otherwise, these shoes are awesome!

Love these boots!

Love these Veldskoen Chukka boots! Out of the box and on my feet - they felt amazing right away. In addition - I feel great when I wear them. Not a week goes by that someone, comments on how good my shoes look. The directions for care mentioned they will patina over time or you could polish them. I am trusting the patina process and use a simple horse hair brush to treat any scuff marks that occur through out the day. Buy them. You won't be sorry.

That’s called customer service!!!

I had a small issue, that I was able to fortunately fix. This was my first time, having to contact customer service and I will say that it was far better than expected, and I expected good. Not only did they stick with me through the issue and help but they showed genuine care.
I purchased my first pair of vellies over two decades ago and I am happy to say that quality is still there. I love these shoes, for the comfort, and look, and now, for the people that they are. Thank you again for a wonderful experience.
