The Urban Chelsea boot is an extension of our mission at Veldskoen to improve the lives around us, reduce our impact, make shoes that outlast and never stop improving what we do, and how we do it. Each Chelsea boot is handcrafted and thoughtfully designed in Durban, South Africa with ethically sourced materials and made in a sustainable manner that allows you to adventure, move and inspire with a positive impact on the people around you and the least amount of negative impact on your environment.

  • 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.

Very well-made and super comfortable

Great shoes. Gum sole is superior to other colored soles in terms of durability. Only downside is light color is easy to get dirty

Mens Urban Chelsea

Outrageously comfortable and an absolute utility player. It can be dressed up as easily as it is worn casually. Well crafted and good looking, you could not you ask for more. My shoe closet warmly welcomes all Veldskoen shoes.
