get your vellie fix
Legion’s leather vellies reach just below the ankle and have an open lacing system – with two pairs of lace holes. Available in neutral tanned suede leathers, they go great with denims through to chinos because of their easy going colouring. 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. Rach vellie that we produce is a unique piece of local craftsmanship filled with a lotta’ sole.
home style comfort
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.
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 locally sourced leather is thick enough to negate the need for an extra lining, subsequently you get a more spacious ﬁt.
The base sole of every Legion is made from polyurethane – making it lightweight, water resistant and more affordable! This specialised component also allows for an even weight distribution, in turn making your shoe far more comfortable. Our soles have enough integrity to maintain their proﬁle under pressure – but enough ﬂex to handle the impact. These hardy foundations offer your feet the support they need and the comfort they deserve. They promise to take you many places before even considering thinning out.
