Mini Handmade Vellies by Schier

Today’s post comes to you straight from my “Stuff I Want” files. These Velskoen, pronounced “fell-skoon”, boots are handmade in Namibia from two pieces of kudu hide. They are made in the Herbert Schier workshop by eight Damara gentleman on the Namibian coast.

Colloquially known as “velllies”, these boots are a modern version of the desert boot, and were first made in the 1600s, inspired by the footwear of the Khoikhoi tribe and crafted using raw materials. LOVE!

The cute pairs that you see above are available in a limited edition release at Opening Ceremony.
