Fun shoes!! ❤️ These shoes are by far the most “fun” I have! ★★★★★  - Brittany M(Brea, US)

  • Handmade In South Africa
  • Sustainably and ethically made
  • High-performance technical suede that repels water
  • Ultra-comfy


Uhambo means 'JOURNEY' in the Xhosa Language. The Xhosa language is South Africa's second-most-populous language. The Xhosa people belong to several tribes with related yet distinct heritages. They are fiercely traditional and continue to practice their customs inherited from their forefathers to this day.

  • 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.
  • 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.

Pink is poppin’

Ever since I left South Africa, my husband and I were thinking about those cool Veldskoen shoes we saw so many people wearing. Couldn’t wait to order a pair for us. I love my brown suede with pink design. Boy, do they stand out and look tres chic., my husband has his brown leather and has been getting so many compliments. He is now known as being stylish! Who would have thought..

I was torn between colors but ultimately choose the Heritage in pink. I’ve already received compliments on them. Very comfortable. Next color, blue! Super fast shipping!

I'm in love

My shoes are so dreamy. I have a very wide foot which fit comfortably inside the shoes. I walked all day the second day I owned them and my feet felt great. . I love the colored soles and laces! I want more colors and am trying to think of reasons why I deserve another pair

So glad to get!

I had the chance to go to South Africa recently and so grateful for the chance! I saw these shoes at game reserves and really liked them! I just ordered for Christmas and so pleased with purchase! They are so unique and practical! I loved meeting the wonderful people of South Africa and will have happy memories of my time there when I wear the shoes!!!
