Heritage Shoe Range

Our Heritage Veldskoen was our first and remains our most popular product range. Reimagined with our signature colorful Veldskoen soles and our streamlined design, they remain, in essence, everything a traditional South African pair of Veldskoen should be; tough, comfortable, and reliable.

Vilakazi Yellow

Vilakazi Street is probably the most famous street in Soweto, a huge township that forms part of Johannesburg. Both Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu lived there. Not many places in the world can claim that two Nobel Prize winners lived in the same street!

Features

  • Superior materials: We source as many of our materials locally (in SA) as we possibly can. By sourcing locally, we help support local businesses and communities. This has the knock-on effect of reduced carbon emissions because components and finished products spend less time in transit.
  • All-day Comfort: Veldskoen 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 detail:   Each Veldskoen is handmade and stitched in South Africa by master shoe makers. This means individual care and attention is given to every shoe.
  • Brighten your sole:   Veldskoen come in a variety of colours. There’s a Veldskoen sole for every mood and situation. In Veldskoen you can go from cruising the office to hiking through the bush, without skipping a beat.
  • Odor free: Did you know leather is a natural deodorizer? Veldskoen announce themselves because of how they look, not because of how they smell. You can even wear them without socks.

Specs

  • Leather Uppers: Our leather is sourced from a handful of local tanneries. We use a few different types of leather.
  • Full-grain reversible suede in 1.8/2.0mm substance on our Heritage and Chelsea range.
  • All our leathers are sustainably and ethically, sourced by-products from the local meat industry.

    Because we use genuine leather, finishes may differ slightly between shoes or areas on a pair of shoes. We love these unique textures and believe they are part of what gives Veldskoen their beautiful character!

  • Hydrophobic leather: All our Veldskoen leathers have been treated to repel water. This means that if you spill liquid on them, it will roll off, instead of damming up, which gives you time to wipe off the liquid before it is absorbed.
  • Veldskoen Sole: All our soles are made from a durable synthetic rubber compound, which is recyclable.
  • Inner soles: To give you all-day comfort, our inner soles are made with a 4mm, high density, memory foam. They are covered with a durable PU lining that creates the perfect padding for your feet.
  • Laces: Our 70cm/27-inch laces are 50/50 polyester and cotton blend. This combination of polyester and cotton creates a strong and flexible lace that will last a long time.
  • Stitching: Our stitching is done with 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.

Returns & Exchanges 

Are your Veldskoen feeling a bit snug? Don't worry. It's better that your shoes are initially tight-fitting, as the leather will stretch and mold to the shape of your foot.

However, if your shoes are already a bit roomy right from the start, you may want to exchange them for a smaller size.

Check out our size guide for more information.

Whatever the reason for wanting to make an exchange or return, we are here to help.

Providing that your shoes are still in their original packaging, and unworn, we will be happy for you to return or exchange them within 30 days of purchase. For pre-orders, this 30 day period will commence once your shoes have been shipped.

We offer one free exchange per order. Additional exchanges will be charged a shipping cost.
