Soft supple full-grain leather uppers
Handmade In South Africa
Sustainably and ethically made
High-performance technical full-grain leather that repels water
The Veldskoen Woodstock the perfect blend of timeless style and extreme comfort. The beautiful, butter-soft full-grain leather will make your feet feel like they're melting into the shoes, while the supportive rubber sole provides excellent grip and stability. Plus, each pair is hand made in South Africa using only the highest quality materials. Whether you're exploring the wine country or just out running errands, these shoes are sure to keep you comfortable all day long.
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.
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.
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.
To us, sustainabilityis about making beautiful products that last, constantly looking at every aspect of a process, and evaluating how we can do it better to improve the impact on the environment and the people around us.
We're so happy to hear that you find our Woodstock Chelsea shoes both comfortable and classy, Jeremiah. We hope you'll continue to enjoy them for many years to come. Thank you for your business, and we look forward to serving you again in the future. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

I Like Them but…
Quality seems good and they are comfortable… I've only had them for a couple of weeks. When I pulled the left boot on using the leather “pull loop” (I’m assuming that’s what it’s for)… it tore away on the interior of the boot. Now I will need to either cut it off completely or pay a visit to the local shoe repair. Kind of disappointing after spending so much on a pair of shoes.

Soft and supple uppers with just the right amount of elastic make for a very comfortable Chelsea. Highly recommended!

I’ve had my boots for two weeks and I really like them. I wear 10 1/2-11 and ordered a size 10 and they fit fine. Leather is soft and after a day very comfortable.

Giving Aussie workboots a run for the money
Have tried Blunnies and Clarks for the Chelsea boot, the Veldskoen's are more comfy than Blunnies and have a good fit for a wide foot like Clarks do. Very pleased. They are smart looking, well made, and can take a dusty track and with some scuffs look like exactly like they should. These are the kind of boot that looks great without a lick of polish.
