Our Women’s ‘Tsonga’ Snugg Boots in Toffee Leather are a super comfy, cosy, warm pair of winter boots. Snugg is for Snuggly. Made from a 100% South African Cow Leather with a multi colour tribal design cotton weave fabric on the sides. The interior of the boots are fully lined with a fluffy fleece for ultimate comfort and warmth. All our shoes are fitted with Italian fiber board inner-soles and latex foam in-soles, which are covered with leather for a super soft feel. Italian fiber boards are much more breathable and durable, lasting up to 10 years which helps prevent soles from splitting in half. Fitted with 100% genuine eco rubber soles for outstanding quality and good grip. All our soles can be replaced and recycled when needed. All NAVA Apparel shoes are handmade by local South African craftsmen and women. Without their skills, our quality products wouldn’t exist.
Match up your Tsonga Snugg Boots with a bag from our Tsonga Collection.
‘Tsonga’ is a Southern African tribe and language, which is more notable in countries such as South Africa, Swaziland, Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Tsonga tribes are mainly found in the Limpopo, Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng provinces. Most of southern Mozambique is inhabited by Tsonga people, variously named as Copi, Rhonga, Ndzawu, Tonga, Shangana, and Tshwa. The Tsonga grouping is sometimes known as Tswa-Ronga. “Double-barrel” names have caused more problems and confusion in the past, instead of fostering union. This brought about the name Vatsonga-Machangana or Tsonga/Shangaan. The Gaza-Ngoni-Ndwandwe went to what is now South Africa after 1897, where as the Tsonga group went there from 1820. The Gaza-Ngoni-Ndwandwe later tried to claim to be Tsonga kings in South Africa, when in fact, they had never ruled the Tsonga in what later became South Africa. For this reason, the name Tsonga should be preferred over Tswa-Ronga.
