I love ‘em
I wanted to love this shoe and do but unfortunately ran I to the same challenge I have with ankle boots - the back flap of this design was chaffing my achilles. So well made and gorgeous color. Wish they worked for me. Still would recommend.
thanks for the great customer service in exchanging for the perfect fit!!!
Thank you for your positive review and for letting us know about your great customer service experience! We're so happy to hear that our team was able to help you get the perfect fit. We hope you'll enjoy your new Chelsea Blue shoes!
I read about Veldskoen in an action novel, checked out the website, and loved the look of the blue Chelsea boot. They arrived more quickly than I expected and look even better in person than they did in the picture. I am glad I read the advice and reviews about size. Normally I am a size 7.5 and the size 7 is a perfect fit. So far I have only worn them around the house to break them in, but I am very happy with the comfort and quality. I definitely plan to order more in the future!

I have several pairs of veldskoens. They are the best no matter what you're doing. From trekking in the veld to a nice dinner out, my veldys got my covered.
