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.
The Pinotage is South Africa's signature red wine grape. It was bred in 1925 as a cross between Pinot noir and "Hermitage" (a grape known as Cinsaut today). Pinotage grapes produce deep red varietal wines with smoky, bramble, and earthy flavors, sometimes with notes of bananas and tropical fruit.
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!
We offer one free exchange per order.
I live on the West Coast of Canada and everyone wears Blundstone boots and I'm sorry to say I just don't like their style (Sorry Blundstone lovers). So, I went online looking for something different and I came across the Veldskoen website. I'm not even sure how to say the name but one thing for sure they have some good looking shoes. After reading all the good reviews, I decided to take a gamble and buy a pair of Heritage Pinotage with the red sole (sounds like a wine). I was instantly impressed with these shoes, they are comfortable, stylish and very well made (made in South African). I will be buying a second pair soon maybe in a different style. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone. I was hesitant at first because I had not heard of this brand but I'm glad I took the gamble. I'm now a fan.
Superb experience with Veldskoen. The craftsmanship of my (possessive of them already) Heritage Pinotage is one-of-kind from material, to how they are stitched, to the protective bag and discount card which arrived in the package. But what is outstanding is the Customer Service. I was having difficulty attempting to order from Canada and utilize a discount code. I sent a message truly thinking I would not receive a reply. Not only did I receive one timely reply, but more which were personalized as well addressing all of my concerns and then going beyond my expectations. They made me feel special. Thank-you! My problem, which style and colour do I purchase next! :)
I have worn for any length of time, but the fit was perfect. Come fall they will be on. Would recommend for sure.
It was a gift. The person who received the pair eports being satisfied - the shoes are 'in use'... : proof positive :-) :-)
