Classics! They are as comfortable as they are good looking! ★★★★★  - Andre O (Kirkland, US)


Have you ever been on a Safari? Not the Safari in the back of a big jeep watching the big five stroll past. We mean the safari that consists of you, a guide, no cell service, and a day’s walk with another human. It is humbling, exhilarating, and is no place for a shoe failure. The Veldskoen is a national pride and is trusted by most guides and game farmers.

    • 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 mold to your foot. After a 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 shoe makers. This means individual care and attention is given to every shoe. See our factory to learn more.
    • Brighten your sole: Veldskoen come in 7 colors 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 all 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.
    • In soles: 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 50/50 polyester cotton blend with a length of 70cm / 27 inch. The combination of the Polyester and Cotton blend create 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.

Great shoes!

I love my shoes. Great fit and excellent quality. Thank you!

Wow!!! Absolutely LOVE them!!

These shoes were recommended by my brother-in-law who happens to be a South-African. He swore the were the best and most comfortable shoes he’s ever owned but that they stretch a little and recommend I buy down a size which I did. However they were just a tad bit small so I returned them for my normal size and they fit like a glove! Did I mention I absolutely LOVE them?!?!


Great workmanship and style, perfect fit. So glad I have them


Everything you guys said is true about these shoes. They are bad ass! Ian

Finally a found an excellent quality chukka boot!

Fine quality and well made boot! The size was just right. The boots are forming to my feet and are very comfortable. Love the quality of the leather!

Love the shoes

Great shoes, great fit

Awesome Shoe

Wow, what an amazing shoe! It looks great, excellent quality, and is so comfortable. I have narrow feet, and these are particularly well fitting for my size. I should get a commissioner from Veldskoen, as at least three people, in just a week, have indicated they are going to buy a pair!

Great Shoes!

Great Quality and super cool style

We love them!! We had to size down.

These shoes are great! My husband loved these so I purchased for his birthday. The site suggest to size up and we did (he wears a 10.5) and they were huge! The exchange process was extremely simple and they even shipped the new shoes before receiving the larger size! Great customer service! We will definately order a pair for my son as well!

Great shoes!

I love my shoes. Great fit and excellent quality. Thank you!
