Veldskoene or 'vellies' as locals call them are synonymous with being South African. First made in the 17th century by the first Dutch settlers to South Africa, they are known for their tough nature and can be worn for everyday use.
Suede is a type of leather with a sueded finish. It is made from the inner side of the hide, which is often softer and more pliable.
All our High Top Vellies are pre-treated with a Suede Protector that shields and guards them against oil stains and water penetration. However regular maintenance is suggested (check out our Suede & Nubuck Care Products in the Online Store under our Leather Range) to increase the longevity of your shoes. This is why we offer a FREE Suede Protector with every purchase so that you can continue to enjoy them
We use a heavy 'stitch down' pattern on a rugged sole resulting in a comfortable but long-lasting shoe. Lined from heel to toe with leather suede, and with soles made from a hard-wearing rubber compound, the shoes are durable and well-supported.
'Vellies' are iconic with South African footwear and a favourite with locals.
