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 a 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 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.
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.
The shoe cleaning kit came exactly as described. The spray and brush made my shoes look like new again- save a little wear on the soles from putting so many steps on them! Best shoes EVER!

Son loves boots he got for Christmad!
My son loves these boots. We traveled to South Africa this summer and were pleased to learn we could purchase so easily here in the US. He likes that they are handmade, so comfortable, and look great! Thank you!
