Heritage Pinotage (red sole)

Heritage Shoe Range

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.  

Pinotage Red

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. 

    • 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.
    • 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.

    The shoes are beautiful, but having bought a smaller size as recommended I am still stretching them out indoors. They are indeed tight at first but are starting to loosen up. The right foot is still a bit tight but I'm hoping they will be ready to wear when spring comes in a couple of months. I would have given 5 stars if I didn't have to spend so long breaking them in.

    Great shoes. Far better than the ones I had in Zimbabwe so many years ago. Very stylish.

    Amazing Comfort and Style

    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.

    Over the Moon Happy!

    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! :)
