Interior of the men’s vellies Xhosa sand suede fully lined with leather and fitted with fiber board insoles. Covered in latex foam and wrapped with leather for your comfort. As a matter of fact, our fiber board innersoles much more breathable and durable, lasting up to 10 years, also helping to prevent soles from splitting in half. Fitted with 100% genuine eco rubber soles for outstanding quality and good grip. Soles also hand-stitched into the bottom of the shoe. All soles can be replaced and recycled when needed. All NAVA Apparel shoes handmade by local South African craftsmen and women. Without their skills, our quality products wouldn’t exist.

Veldskoene (“FELT-skoona”) or vellies (“FELL-ys”) Southern African walking shoes made from vegetable-tanned leather or soft rawhide uppers attached to a leather footbed and rubber sole without tacks or nails. The name comes from Afrikaans vel (“skin”), later assimilated with veld (“field”), and skoene (“shoes”). First made in the 17th century by the Dutch settlers in South Africa. Their design also based on the traditional Khoisan footwear observed by these settlers. The footwear later embedded into the Afrikaaner psyche when velskoene were used as the footwear of the Great Trek.

Artist Inspiration: The Xhosa people are a Bantu ethnic tribe of Southern Africa living in south-east South Africa. The name “Xhosa” comes from that of a legendary leader called uXhosa. The Xhosa Collection was also inspired by the strength and determination of our leader Nelson Mandela who fought for freedom for the people of South Africa. The man who made the impossible, possible!
