Chukka

The Veldskoen Chukka is our all-weather, all-purpose boot! The cut is timeless and can be dressed up or down. Perfect for outside or inside adventures! You really only need to pack one pair of shoes.

Our Chukka boots are made from strong, full-grain, oily waxy leather, which softens and darkens, as it ages. This leather’s waxy finish initially causes it to scuff easily. If the marks bother you, they polish out easily enough with a leather cream. However, should you let them settle, you will see that what starts out as marks, become traits of a deep and lasting character. This specific leather is proof that some things just get better and better with age!

Not true to size

I ordered a size 9 men’s but the fit length wise is more like a 10. I have size 10 running shoes and the fit length wise is the same.

Next these shoes are WIDE. Not everyone has wide feet. I would like to see these offered in a narrower version.

All that being said these shoes are well made and good looking. I was tempted to send them back and try a size 8 but I tried wearing them with sports socks which are thicker than summer ankle socks or dress socks and they felt a bit better.

I walked around the block with them and they’re manageable and seem like they will be comfortable shoes

Amazing shoes

My first pair of Veldskoen was a pair of Heritage Pinotage, comfortable from the moment I first put them on. I wanted a pair of the Chukka's so badly, but they weren't available in my size until recently. Customer service was amazing, they knew I was waiting for a smaller size and let me me know in advance of them being listed, that they would be available. I ordered them right away and have been enjoying them ever since. Highly recommend them!

My New Boots

First off, I have to compliment the quality of the manufacture of the product. Top quality leather, well stitched and finished nicely. These were purchased as a replacement for a favourite pair of boots that I had rebuilt twice and are now relegated to occasional use. My only complaint, such as it is, is that the product is not orthotic friendly. Yes, the insole is removeable but an orthotic is somewhat more substantial than a manufacturer's one. Consequently, the last of the boot; specifically, the area where the tongue begins its path over the instep, is far too narrow to allow the boot to be put on without some extra effort. These are not a "slip me on and tie me up" product. Some extra volume in that area would be appreciated. Fortunately, I own a set of shoe stretchers and have managed to loosen the leather a bit but it still requires an effort to put them on. Now, once they are on and laced up, they are a reasonably comfortable shoe. Time will tell if they will stretch enough to be like the "slippers" they replaced. If I was to suggest any alteration or addition to the line it would be to offer the boots in a slightly wider width, say "EE"? It would have made wearing them easier.
