Offering two colour-way, tan and khaki, they go great with denims through to chinos because of their neutral appearance. This shoe is a great companion to have on stand by for just about any occasion, from a walk outside to an indoor office meeting.
FIT TO FACE THE ELEMENTS
Legion’s leather vellies hold the promise of feeling like home, which comes as no surprise considering they’re based on traditional Dutch design and Khoisan construction methods. We aim to honour the authenticity and ingenuity of these iconic shoes through our own stylistic adaptations. Your leather vellie will be an exclusive piece of footwear that you can wear with pride and confidence. Each of our shoes is made using the stitch-down method, which means the upper is stitched to the mid-sole, which is glued to the base sole. This hard-wearing method results in a resilient shoe fit to face the elements.
VELLIES CRAFTED TO LAST
Each shoe is shaped, cut and trimmed by hand, resulting in an exclusive piece of footwear unlike any other. The sole itself is formulated from polyurethane, which is injected into a mould and proves to be rather abrasion resistant. Therefore, our soles are solid and in turn will take you many places before even considering thinning out. These hardy soles offer your feet the support they need and the comfort they deserve.
In terms of the leather we use, why it’s only the best. The Legion vellie is crafted from genuine cow suede leather, which is locally sourced and thus a sustainable material. Our leathers are soft on the skin and through a tanning process, become quite velvety to the touch, making them a treat for your feet! Our premium quality leather is thick enough to negate the need for an extra lining, subsequently you get a more spacious fit.
