I have wonky ankles and struggle to find shoes that look great and are comfortable for osteoarthritis in the ankle joint. The Veldskoen “sneaker” fit the job to great effect. People also comment of the blue soles. They are worth the price of admission
I was immediately drawn to these shoes because they are a different take on an everyday shoe / sneaker. They are comfortable and seem as though they will age well.

It sounds like comfort was a priority when choosing our shoes and we can definitely attest that they do age well - these shoes have become staples within any wardrobe!

I own 6 pairs of Veldskoen, and they are, by FAR, my favorite shoes.
Beautifully made, great styles, and ethical business practice.
That's the Triple Crown, right there.
