Full-grain leather Veldskoen shoes start out stiff but quickly stretch and soften. When you first try them on, they need to fit very tightly over the bridge of your foot. Within a few minutes of wear, they will stretch to fit comfortably. Wear them with socks the first 2-5 times to allow them to completely soften and take on the shape of your foot. Once worn in, Veldskoen can confidently be worn without socks. Our breathable leather is a natural deodorizer. 
Men choose M size and Women choose W sizing.

Vellies Marula (Nude Sole)

When you visit the Mpumalanga lowveld, or the Kruger National Park, you might be lucky enough to see an elephant taking an afternoon nap under a Marula tree. 

According to South African folklore, elephants can become intoxicated when they eat fermented Marula fruits from the ground. 

However, the story probably just comes from elephants being elephants.  Playful one minute, deliciously lazy the next. Fermented Marula fruit only contains about 3% alcohol, not nearly enough to justify a drunken elephant. 

Regardless, we think you'd be pretty comfortable at any party in a pair of Marula Vellies.

Still everything a Veldskoen should be; tough, comfortable, and reliable, now available in an elegant bootcut.

Love 'em

I love my Vellies for walks and for their styling. They are very comfortable (follow the measuring advice from them), especially with the thicker socks that I wear. The soles appear to be superior to other similar shoes.


My new go to everyday shoe. They’re comfortable even without socks and break in quickly. I had to size down nearly two full sizes though since my foot was swimming in the original US 11 size I ordered. At nearly $120 these are at the absolute limit of what I would spend on casual shoes. $90 - $95 is a better price point.

The Veldskoen staff are friendly and helpful. Kudos to them for a pleasant shopping experience!

Best looking shoes

These shoes are not only comfortable, but they complete any outfit. I love my V’s

Hard-wearing and stylish

Since I bought them they have become my default option for my workdays, effortlessly walking with me the 4 miles commute.
Very comfortable from the beginning and look stylish.
Sizes do indeed run big as advertised.

Order small

The shoes arrived in perfect condition and I was very excited to wear them for the rest of the day in the office. But my excitement will have to wait since even though I ordered what should have been my correct size and Veldskoen delivered exactly what I ordered, the boots were about two sizes too big for my feet. Rather than feeling snug around the top of the foot like Veldskoen describes, they were loose all over, even with socks. Oh well, I’ll return the large pair and try two sizes down.
