Made with soft, supple suede leather, lightly buffed on the inside, and a bouncy cushioned innersole for the ultimate all-day comfort. The Vellie has a slightly higher ankle than the heritage boot for that classic chukka boot silhouette you love so much. These will be a pair of shoes you won't look forward to taking off at the end of the day.

  • Handmade In South Africa
  • Sustainably and ethically made
  • High-performance technical leather that repels water
  • Ultra-soft leather and super comfy
  • 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 U.S 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.

Womens Vellie Jacaranda

Happy that I continued my search. For years I have looked for a Desert Boot or Chuuka style shoe. Even with Veldskoen I thankfully persisted to find the right size and fit. I tried the Heritage style in two sizes. (Even following the on line measurement guide I had to size down.) This style just did not fit my foot.
I then tried a men's style but food the toe bed to look too big and round.
In a last try, I tried the Women's Vellie Jacaranda. The color is subtle.
The connection to South Africa and the sustainability speaks to me and first drew me in.

This is the purple you need!

I LOVE the purple Vellie Jacaranda shoes! I pair them with denim, maroon, pastels, etc... Of course, soon after delivery, the red Heritage shoes were finally back in stock. So, I had to have them, too. I am ecstatic about my purchases and wear them often. Don't forget to order shoestrings in another color.
