These desert boots are made since 1935 by local Damara craftsmen in a small village called Swakopmund in Namibia, all hand-stitched from wild kudu leather. Every day 8 craftsmen made 20 pairs of ‘vellies’ (desert boots). We wrote about it a while ago, never knew that they would collaborated with Opening Ceromoney this year. The campaign shot by photographer Jason Eric Hardwick is looking good as well. Hardwick travelled through the desert for almost three months while making these pictures.
The limited edition vellies include a selection of tufted springbok hide and leopard-printed leather. We’re fan! Shop them in here www.openingceremony.us.
