Veldskoen Shoes, famous for their hand-stitched, locally produced vellies with colourful soles, is expanding its product range with a luxury leather slipper.
The Veldskoen Slipper:
The company describes the slipper as more of a hybrid shoe. A gorgeous olive green, silky Nubuck leather exterior is fully lined with 100% sheep skin, to create luxurious comfort and warmth. Combined with the sturdy Veldskoen TR sole, used on their other ranges, it means the shoe can also be worn outside of the house. If you’ve ever wanted to wear your slippers to town, now you really can.
When the entire Veldskoen team was working from home during the pandemic, the product development team thought it was time to give South Africa a shoe that suited the new normal. More and more companies have embraced a work-from-home culture resulting in relaxed work attire.
The slippers will exclusively be available for sale from veldskoen.com and retail at R1 399.
Veldskoen Shoes is a South African shoe company that started in 2016. As the brand is deeply invested in stimulating the local economy through its supply chain and its growing labour force, Veldskoen shoes always have and always will be produced in South Africa.
In under five years, Veldskoen has become an established global brand. Veldskoen shoes are sold through independent and chain retailers in 33 countries. The company has attracted celebrity investment from Ashton Kutcher and Mark Cuban and has participated in international brand collaborations with partners like DHL and Briana Evigan. In 2021, Veldskoen became the official off-field shoe of Team SA at the Tokyo Olympic Games, a full-circle moment for the brand, which was started with the mission to show South Africans that a homegrown product could compete on the international stage.
