Veldskoen

Event information

The history of Veldskoen shoes is as rich and diverse as the country they come from. There are various groups of people who believe the Veldskoen, or a version of it, started with them.

The word "Veldskoen", was first documented by the Dutch settlers who arrived in Southern Africa almost 400 years ago. It means "field shoes." However, according to Khoisan tribal folklore, there were leather shoes, cut from a single hide, being made and worn by the tribe, as far back as 1000 years before that.

According to GQ magazine, Nathan Clark, of Clarks Shoes, was serving in the second world war when he noticed South African officers wearing, in his own words, “strange leather shoes”.

All shoes are manufactured in South Africa but is now a global brand. Veldskoen Shoes was selected as the official off-field shoe for Team SA in the Tokyo Olympics. They have also recently partnered with LIFT airlines. Travellers on LIFT flights may notice their crew sporting fresh new footwear.
