DESCRIPTION & FEATURES

Lowveld

The Lowveld is the name given to two magical areas that lie at an elevation of between 500 and 2,000 feet above sea level. Green lush grass for as far as the eye can see teaming with wildlife The Lowveld is a signature view of the great South African plains.

  • 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.
SHIPPING & RETURNS

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.

Very pleased

The desert boots I bought from Veldskoen after their relentless social media advertising seem really well made and are handsome to look at. The only glitch I experienced was the inside of one of the boots had a small rough patch where various pieces of letter were stitched together. The rough patch was a little irritating on one of my feet so I went over it with a small piece of rough grit sandpaper. Problem solved after just a couple minutes of sanding. Love the colored stitching on the boots too.

Love Them

I really love my Veldskoen shoes. I got the ones with the green soles. I have never had shoes that complete strangers noticed and asked me about. Seriously, in about 2 weeks of wearing them, I have had several people comment about them when I was in the store or at a restaurant. They are super comfortable, once you break them in a couple wearings. My only complaint is the insole. I may be biased because on of my clients is Superfeet, an insole maker, but the insole on these shoes does not provide great arch support. I also realize that these kinds of shoes generally don’t do that—traditionally they are flat-soled. So it’s a minor thing.

Look and feel great, but the laces did start to have the inner brown come through the outer green within a week or so of wearing
