Happy feet! ❤️ Love these shoes! The more I wear them, the more comfortable they get ★★★★★  - Sudit M (Vancouver, US)

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



Vilakazi Street is probably the most famous street in South Africa. Both Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu lived here – how many streets can claim that two Nobel Prize winners lived on it. In fact, Tutu, as he is more fondly known, still lives here with his wife Leah, and when he's in town he is said to stroll the streets.

  • 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.

Awesome Shoes

I never write reviews but these shoes are amazing. Comfortable and cute. I got the yellow soles. Wish I could get pink too. Well made and fit true to size.

Colorful vellies for nature lovers with style

I am really looking forward to breaking in my new vellies! The suede is amazingly soft, but my wide ankles mean that even the softest suede needs a little time to get comfortable at the ankle. I hope to soon be able to wesr them without socks as around-town shoes, and of course with socks and gaiters in the wilds. I’d love to know how to break them in more quickly and how to clean those yellow laces and soles to keep them looking new, but I love them as they are and hope they last a good many miles!

oh my yellOHHH!

Usually when you buy new shoes it hurts in the beginning because you have to break them in, but when I wore these for the first time I didn't have that problem. The only problem I had was that they arrived a little dirty like they were used or a floor model, but I was able to clean them easily. Yay! These are my new favorite shoes! With yellow! Very stylish :) <3

Hi Jen - We have a new tissue paper with our branding on it and unfortunately we are finding that sometimes the printing on the tissue rubs on the shoes and makes them look dirty - we are working on getting this fixed immediately - thank you so much for your understanding. If you ever need anything, please reach out.

A Unique Fabulous Look

It took me two tries of daily wear to decide if I really liked these shoes. I purchased the Heritage yellow. Recieved complements on their nostalgic 70's style. The feel grew on me and thankfully my feet weren't affected by the minimalist sole with no cushion or arch support, at all, in the foot bed. I have a slender, bony foot and need a wide shoe due to plantar fasciitis. These were tight fitting at first, but the soft suede did give and stretch where needed on the outer sided of my toe and the ball of my foot. This is a great caaual shoe with a cool, trendy vibe. The color choices of the bottom tread is what hooked me! Would have given 5 stars if they offered half sizes. There's no good compromise with this brand. They'll either be too floppy or uncomfortably snug in either choice if you're a half size. And you better have a foot shape on the narrow side or be prepared to wear them snug for a few days until the leather stretches. I would buy these again, with a coupon offer, if my color choices ever brcome available. I like the sustainability of this product especially.

Hi PJ - thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We are very grateful. Due to much demand, we have been able to offer half sizes in our most popular colors in the Veldskoen Heritage: black, grey and blue. As we are a small business, we are slowly adding more skus and hope to have half sizes in all colors in time :) Thanks so much!
