Chelsea Farmer (grey sole)

Chelsea Shoe Range

Veldskoen has reimagined the traditional Chelsea boot with our signature pop of colour!  

Farmer Grey

The Farmer is our nod to the folks who wear Veldskoen every day. Southern African farmers have worn Veldskoen since the 17th century. Good Veldskoen shoes are hardworking and tough as nails. They can, and will, get the job done. Just like good farmers.

    • 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 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 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.

    As promised, fit and quality are excellent

    I took the recommendation to size down if you're between sizes, and that was a great decision. The more I wear them, the more perfect the fit becomes as the leather stretches a bit. Overall I'm very happy with this product!

    Awesome boots!

    This is my third pair of boots and love them all. This pair is a little looser than the others, bit larger fit but no big deal, I just added an insole. Great quality and fast delivery. Thanks

    Love my Chelsea Farmers!

    I chose the grey Chelsea Farmer because the colour is such a great neutral tone and works so well with my wardrobe. I love these for my “comfy” and chilled days - going out for the day, walking my dog - they are super practical - just pull on and go! They are my “go to” and live at my front door! Well worth every cent spent on them. They are true to size and even better in person! I am thrilled!

    Excellence pour la qualité et la livraison

    J'ai acheté les Chelsea Farmer. Un soulier très comfortable et de superbe qualité. Pointure parfaite, selon le tableau suggéré. J'ai aussi acheté une paire de Plakkie, Surface très douce pour les pieds et couleurs bien agencées. Livraison en deux temps car ils n'avaient pas la couleur demandée. Reçu rapidement les souliers qui ont été payés seulement lors de la livraison complète
