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 a 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.
Laces: Our laces are 50/50 polyester cotton blend with a length of 70cm / 27 inch. The combination of the Polyester and Cotton blend create a strong and flexible lace that will not break down and lasts longer than traditional laces.
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.

The shoes I ordered are size 40 but I need a 39. They’re wearable but loose. I recommend ordering the half size option where it is offered or size up, otherwise they’re comfy and they have some arch support. If you have a high instep and arches definitely size up !

Very comfortable after a week of break in. They run a size larger so a size 11 would order a size 10. Easy on and off…I’m happy w my purchase.

Hi I wasn’t sure about this that it was truly better than regular leather cleaner but it is. Easy to use too!!
I bought it just to try, thinking outside the box to the usual wax paste, it worked great, really brought my shoes back to life
