''I am personally nnnever'' (said in a Kourtney Kardashian accent) ever going to be seen alive wearing Velskoens aka the shoes that I grew up seeing scary Afrikaans men in Safari Suits and combs in their socks wear. But I appreciate their existence in the world, especially because these particular velskoens are from our neighbouring Namibia and are being exported to the rest of the world at a rate of 20 pairs of shoes in production every day. That may not be a lot compared to say, the standards popularised by countries like China and India, but the fact that these shoes are hand made by 8 men, from Kudu leather dyed with colour from vegetables, at the price of approximately R2500 a pair, that deserves some recognition. The company responsible is Schier Shoes from Swakopmund, Namibia. I llove the fact that they make them for men, women and children. Nice work men.
