Digitalistic boots: Made in Namibia

These one of a kind wild kudu (native antilope) leather boots from Schier Shoes, are handmade in Swakopmundm, Namibia. A true trend on the streets over there.

Every day eight men make 20 pair of shoes, individually handcrafted and available in many colours. The kudu leather is amazingly durable and fits perfect to your feet. These ‘Velskoen’ are known as ‘vellies’, the ancestor of the desert boot. The first one were made in the 17th century by members of the Dutch East India Co, inspired by the Khoisan tribe footwear.
