Heritage Shoe Range

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

J-Bay Blue

J-Bay, or Jeffreys Bay, is one of the best-known surf spots in the world. It sits on the East Coast of South Africa, about a day's drive from Cape Town. It has a perfect point break, with crystal blue water. 


    • 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 moulds 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.
    • Odour 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.
    • Leather Uppers: Our leather is sourced from a handful of local tanneries. We use a few different types of leathers.
    • 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-product 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 given a hydrophobic treatment. This means that if you spill liquid on them, it will roll off, instead of damning up, which gives you time to wipe off the liquid before it is absorbed.
    • Veldskoen Sole:All our soles are all made from a durable synthetic rubber compound, which is recyclable.
    • Insock:To give you all day comfort, our insocks 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.

    Great shoes; value & service!

    These are such comfortable well-made shoes. I know what shoes I'll be living in from now on. And buying them online from Veldskoen was a better experience than buying from Takealot (imagine that!). Understated value for money from a truly local is lekker manufacturer and brand.

    J-Bay Blue Sole's

    Experienced great pain and discomfort when wearing my Vellies for the first time, had blister's on my feet at the end of the day, as stated on the card that came inside the box, you do need to 'break' into the shoes, and boy can the breaking into them process be a pain for your feet. Any potential buyer should be wary of this and not take the warning lightly, be fully prepared, maybe wear thicker-than-normal socks as a precaution. Perhaps padding of some sort as an optional extra can be sought as a solution. Nonetheless a beautiful and quality product, definetly turns alot of heads.


    Good day Barney Thank you for your valued review and feedback. We are surprised to hear that you experienced so much difficulty when wearing in your Veldskoen. The leather is a natural product and sometimes due to the tanning process some skins can be firmer than others. The leather will definitely soften with wear and mould to your feet. We apologise that you had an uncomfortable experience. Some of our customers don’t even wear socks to wear in their Veldskoen and have no issues. Thank you again for your support and feedback.
