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".

This is my second pair of Veldskoen and they only get better. I got my first pair three years ago and they are my daily go-to for work and play. Looking forward to the blue soled chiukka and comfy way ahead
Love the style of these.
Replaced old pair of Clarks desert boots. I loved the Clarks for too many years. It was past time to replace them. I’ve been extremely pleased with the Veldskoen’s. Sizing was spot on. Break in was quick. I would highly recommend.
I love my new shoes! Beautiful and comfortable!
