Veldskoen Shoes, famous for its hand-sewn, locally produced vellis with colorful soles, is expanding its product line with a luxury leather slipper.
The Veldskoen slipper:
The company describes the slipper as a hybrid shoe. A beautiful olive green silky nubuck leather exterior is fully lined with 100% sheepskin, to create luxurious comfort and warmth. Combined with the robust Veldskoen TR sole, used on their other ranges, this means the shoe can also be worn outside the home. If you’ve always wanted to wear your slippers around town, now you 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 fit for the new normal. More and more companies have embraced a work-from-home culture, which translates into business casual attire.
The slippers will be exclusively available for sale on veldskoen.com and retail at R1,399.
Veldskoen Shoes is a South African footwear company that started in 2016. As the brand is deeply invested in stimulating the local economy through its supply chain and growing workforce, the Veldskoen shoes have always been and always will be produced in South Africa.
In less than five years, Veldskoen has become an established global brand. Veldskoen shoes are sold by independent retailers and chains in 33 countries. The company has attracted celebrity investments 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-court shoe of the SA team at the Tokyo Olympics, a full circle moment for the brand, which began with the mission to show South Africans that a local product could compete on the international scene.
