Woodstock is a wonderful Cape Town suburb, always vibrating with creative energy. Old buildings on the foot of Table Mountain are refurbished and preserved. Where they can’t be saved, graffiti artists decorate the ruins with colourful, vibrant, positive imagery.
Cafes, art galleries, breweries, restaurants, street performers, and car watchers can be seen around every corner. The area is a melting pot of backgrounds, ideas, and cultures. Woodstock is trendy, but tough. Just like these shoes.
Our Woodstock Chelsea 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 clean cloth. However, should you let them settle, you will see that what starts out as marks, become traits of deep and lasting character. This specific leather is proof that some things just get better and better with age!
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 shoemakers. This means individual care and attention is given to every shoe.
Odor-free: Did you know leather is a natural deodorizer? Veldskoen announces themselves because of how they look, not because of how they smell. You can even wear them without socks.
Leather Uppers: Our leather is sourced from a handful of local tanneries. For our Chukka boot, and our Woodstock Chelsea boot, we use a full grain oily waxy leather, which is a sustainably and ethically, sourced by-product from local the meat industry.
- Full grain oily/waxy leather in tan/brown colour for our Chukka and Woodstock ranges also in 1.8/20mm substance.
Because we use full grain leathers, 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.
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.
