Frequently Asked Questions
Veldskoen literally means “Field Shoe” in Afrikaans; one of South Africa’s eleven National Languages. Finding it hard to say? Try, 'Felt-Schoon', or call them by the common abbreviation 'Vellies' [Fell-ease].
It really depends on the person in the shoes. Some may find them comfy out the box, others may find it takes a about week of wear for them to conform and mould to your feet.
Veldskoen are made form 100% genuine African raw hide bovine leather. They are made from a mix of different leather compressed to form one piece, the same way they were made 100 years ago. In some cases, the hide may vary slightly from one shoe to the other, making each piece is 100% unique.
We advise using suede/nubuck cleaning products to clean your Veldskoen. Our favourite is the Spotless Range, we recommend the Spotless Shoe Cleaner for your Veldskoen suede leather shoes and the Spotless Leather Cream for your full grain leather shoes. Do not wash your Veldskoen with water, if they do get wet, let them dry naturally.
Veldskoen are ethically handcrafted by master craftsmen and woman in the Kwa-Zulu Natal region of South Africa.
