Bloem is named after Bloemfontein, the capital city of the Orange Free State province. Bloemfontein directly translated from Afrikaans means flower fountain. Bloemfontein is poetically known as "the city of roses", for its abundance of these flowers and the annual rose festival held there. The city's Sesotho name is Mangaung, meaning "place of cheetahs".

So comfortable right out of the box! Look great too. So happy I finally bought a pair! Might need to get a second pair with a pop of color next!
This is my second pair, not because the first pair wore out, but because the suede classic is so comfortable
I love it!!!!
I ordered the Heritage Blue after returning the Jacaranda in lavender. They ran soooooo large that I was very worried about the fit of the Heritage. I read the reviews that said trust the sizing chart. They arrived and fit perfectly. A little stiff in the back, but just for a few days. Love the royal blue color and they will be perfect to wear to a casual summer wedding weekend on a working ranch this summer (the invitation actually says mind your footwear lol). I have worn them everyday since they have arrived and have gotten several compliments. I am very mindful when making a purchase and always try to purchase things that will last, so happy with my with my Heritage Blue and hope to be wearing them for years to come. Oh, one more thing, my feet are always HOT. So far these boots don't make my feet uncomfortably warm.
I absolutely love the red sole and laces on these and the look over all is fantastic. The soles are on the thin side which can make for slightly uncomfortable walking on a gravel road but still tolerable. I look forward to breaking these in more and getting a bit of a rugged look on them.
