The Farmer is the traditional color combination used by the southern African farmers since the 17th century. The farmer is a nod to our heritage and our traditions of the Veldskoen boot as a hardworking, tough-as-nails shoe that can and will get the job done. learn more

  • 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.

Great Shoes

I teach and needed a pair of shoes that could look professional with a range of outfits and would give me the comfort and support I needed for standing on my feet for over 6 hours a day. These shoes have ticked each of those boxes! I love them.

Larissa E. (Kissimmee, US)

I ordered a size 9 and I am a size 7 in South Africa.. I was a bit to big so believe them if they say you should order a whole size down because the 8 fits me perfectly!!

Best Shoes Ever

As an active person who has had past sports injuries and surgeries to both my feet/ankles, I am not able to wear just any shoes comfortably. For comfort and style, Veldskoen are the best! I wish a could get a pair in every style and color! They are my go-to shoes for every occasion, I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Most comfortable shoes

I love my new Heritage Vellies. They’re so comfortable, they are wide so may not be for you if you have very narrow feet. I’m a medium width; they will be perfect with socks. They’re stylish and well-made and I look forward to cooler weather to wear them

Melody W. (Delaware, US)

Super comfy and sizing was perfect based on measurements/sizing guidance provided on the website. I’m obsessed and can’t wait to get more colors.
