Woodstock is a wonderful Cape Town suburb, always vibrating with creative energy. Old buildings on the foot of Table Mountain are refurbished and preserved. Where they can’t be saved, graffiti artists decorate the ruins with colourful, vibrant, positive imagery.

Cafes, art galleries, breweries, restaurants, street performers, and car watchers can be seen around every corner. The area is a melting pot of backgrounds, ideas, and cultures. Woodstock is trendy, but tough. Just like these shoes.

Our Woodstock Chelsea boots are made from strong, full grain, oily waxy, leather, which softens and darkens, as it ages. This leather’s waxy finish initially causes it to scuff easily. If the marks bother you, they polish out easily enough with a clean cloth. However, should you let them settle, you will see that what starts out as marks, become traits of deep and lasting character. This specific leather is proof that some things just get better and better with age!

    • 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.
    • 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. For our Chukka boot, and our Woodstock Chelsea boot, we use a full grain oily waxy leather, which is a sustainably and ethically, sourced by-product from local the meat industry.
    • Full grain oily/waxy leather in tan/brown colour for our Chukka and Woodstock ranges also in 1.8/20mm substance.

      Because we use full grain leathers, 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.

    Good Quality

    Pure leather and excellent craftsmanship. However, the size I choose was a bit tight on my small foot. So Instead of returning it I just gave it to my daughter. Now she loves it.

    Beautiful boot!

    Love my boots. Love that they are wide, nice grip , easy to get on. Getting nicely distressed. Would recommend. Definitely follow the instructions for size ordering . I do wish they had half sizes though.

    I had a pair of Clarks boots as a teen that I lived in. As an adult, I tried again with a new pair. They were horrendous. Poor quality and construction and killed my feet. When I stumbled across the Woodstock during an online search for new boots, I was immediately excited. I used the chat to speak directly with someone at Veldskoen to determine the appropriate size. I took their recommendation and picked a women's size 8 (I am an 8.5 us) The boots came in under a week and are absolutely amazing. The quality of the leather and the care put into the construction is quite evident. They are of course quite stiff at the moment, but I'm currently breaking them in and never want to take them off. I wish I had found these sooner! I will be a customer for life.

    Pure comfort

    These boots are high quality and have superb comfort - I have extreme arthritis in my feet and finally finding footwear that's comfortable, supportive and fashionable is worth its weight in gold.

    They are the perfect width for me and are so comfortable I don't need to break them in slowly. After carefully measuring my feet I ordered 38s, they are a smidge too big, a 37 1/2 would of been perfect but no 1/2 sizes available. They are very well made and should last years. They arrived quickly as well.

    I used the sizing guide to get the perfect fit. The shoes are soooo comfy! I am a big boy (6’4” and 150kg) and they handle my size well when walking through rugged terrain. They offer great comfort and support. Solid shoes. If you’re wondering about the quality, don’t, I expect these shoes to last many many years. This is money well spent!

    Shoe review

    Excellent, you need to have your people look inside the boots to confirm sizing as I was some confused by your sizing discussions, the answer was in the shoes

    The purchasing experience online was excellent and more than met my expectations. Shipping was quick - just a couple of days and I was kept informed of the package progress to my mail drop off. Product so far is excellent and of high quality. Very comfortable fit for me as my feet are wide.
