DESCRIPTION & FEATURES
  • Sorai

    Profits made on the SORAI VELDSKOEN will be donated to the Kariega Reserve Foundation’s ‘Walk With Us’ campaign to maintain their Anti-Poaching Unit (APU).

    The Kariega Foundation’s main source of funding is a levy paid by Kariega Game Reserve safari guests, due to the international travel COVID-19 travel restrictions the funds have stopped. Every pair of SORAI Veldskoen purchased, contributes to the protection of Rhino at Kariega Reserve.

    “On the ground, every day is a battle, a race against time by the teams of dedicated specialists who rescue, rehabilitate, and release these rhinos back into the wild." - Kevin Pietersen. The time for change is now, and change is possible.

  • 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.

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.

You can make A difference

394 rhinos were poached for their horn in South Africa during 2020, marking the sixth consecutive year showing a decline in poaching. In 2019, 594 rhinos were poached for their horn in South Africa, according to South Africa’s Department of the Environment, Forestry, and Fisheries. Encouraging news. However, we won't stop till we reach zero.

A must have!

I now own one pair of all the shoes and boots as well. With all the chronic pain I have these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. Thank you Veldskoen! I love all the perks as well. Don’t wait any longer just try them you won’t be disappointed 😊💕

Great boot for a great cause!

I'm getting ready for an upcoming trip next year to do an African safari and I know that we will be doing several walking safaris. We're working with Tayla McCurdy and I wanted to give her a shout out for turning me on to the Vellies! When I saw there was a special edition boot to help with conservation efforts, it was a no brainer to get them! Two of the three fit, but I have to exchange one for the larger size since the measurement was at the top end of the recommended size and ended up being too small. I've been wearing mine, though, and they are so comfortable! The color is beautiful, the quality of workmanship first rate, and there seems to be enough arch support to accommodate my flat feet without having to put in inserts. Looking forward to putting them to the test!

LOVE THESE SHOES

I love everything about this company and the personal touch they put into each style of shoe. These are great looking and comfortable. I love the Rhino on the back which reminds us that this is all about conservation. I travel to Africa every couple of years and supporting their precious game is so important.
