  • High-performance technical suede that repels water
  • Ultra-comfy


Pinotage is a red wine grape that is South Africa's signature grape variety. It was bred in 1925 as a cross between Pinot noir and Cinsaut red grape. Pinotage typically produces smoky, bramble, and earthy flavors, sometimes with notes of bananas and tropical fruit. Sounds like the perfect wine to pair with your Veldskoen.

  • 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.

Love these shoes

But, I had to return them. They were too narrow and pinched the little toe on my left foot. Ouch! I have two other pairs of Fellies that I love and wear with no discomfort.

loose stitching after three times being worn

The ordering and delivery process was great. I'm really bummed that the stitching on the left shoe is loose already and I will be exchanging the shoes (I hope). The shoes are adorable, so I really want this to work. At this point, though, the quality seems low, esp. for a fairly expensive shoe.

Hi Sandy - I am sorry the stitching has become loose. Although our shoes are handmade, this is not normal, so please contact our customer service team at and we will take care of an exchange for you.

Great style

Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase. The color and quality are as pictured. My only concern is the tightness of my left shoe. I'm hoping that after a few more times of wearing they will stretch. As of this post, I've only worn them twice.

I also love that I haven't seen anyone else wearing them. I like wearing stuff that not many people have.
